What Are Kills From Behind in MW2 & Warzone 2?

Kills from behind is exactly what it sounds like, you will need to kill an enemy from behind them. These kills can happen no matter the distance as long as the enemy has their back turned to you.

Some players have reported that kills from behind are not counting for them but there is a simple fix for this issue.

How to Get Kills From Behind Easily in Modern Warfare 2

There are a few ways you can speed up the process of getting kills from behind in Modern Warfare 2. Here are the best tips for completing this challenge:

And if you combine all of these tips together, then you will get all the kills you need in no time!

Play Hardpoint

Hardpoint is the best mode for getting kills from behind as spawns are much less predictable and players will generally be located around the objective.

Having unpredictable spawns makes it so enemies will not know the direction you will spawn in and are more likely to be looking the other way.

Set up a spot with sight lines on the objective and gun down any enemies trying to capture it. While not all kills will be from behind, you are sure to get a bunch playing this mode!

Use the Ghost Perk

When going for kills from behind you will want to be as stealthy as possible. If the enemy team calls in a UAV, they will know where you are positioned meaning it will be harder to sneak behind them.

Using Ghost will remove any chance of you showing up on the enemy radar! Although, if the enemy calls in an Advanced UAV, you will still show up on the map.

Use Dead Silence

Just like using Ghost, having Dead Silence equipped is all about stealth. Running both Ghost and this Field Upgrade will ensure you are as silent as possible.

This will make it so your footsteps are completely silent and you can easily sneak behind the enemy lines.

Play on Smaller Maps

Playing on small-sized maps is a great way to rack up kills from behind quicker as you will be involved in more action throughout the game.

The more gun fights you are in the more opportunities you will have to get that kill from behind. There are three maps in MW2 that will help you finish this challenge easily:

  • Shipment
  • Shoothouse
  • Farm 18

Playing on close-quarters maps is also great for completing the point-blank kills challenges in MW2 as well!

How to Fix Kills From Behind Not Counting in MW2 & Warzone 2

If your kills from behind are not counting, this is likely due to you not being directly behind the enemy. Make sure you are positioned right behind the enemy with their back turned to you, as if you shoot at an angle there is a chance it will not count.

And once you have completed all the base and gold camo challenges, you will need to know how to get longshots easily.
