Put away your betties!

Agreed.. with almost 2700 betty kills I'm not going to stop using them any time soon.

My favorite is dropping one at my feet when I run around a corner and stumble onto multiple enemies.  Drop it and shoot what I can, but I almost always get one or more Afterlife/revenge medals that way.

Also, betties' proximity trigger can be from any direction around the device.  Claymores can only be triggered from the side with the red beams, if I'm not mistaken.  Handy for putting just inside a doorway, but most rooms/areas have multiple ways to enter, and very rarely do I see a claymore set next to a window.

Running Engineer and EMP grenades or black hats, the only times I get killed by either (usually) is when doing the no perks/no attachments gun challenges and don't react in time.

I use betties a lot on demolition and domination maps.  There will always be someone who blindly runs to the objective and dies before realizing they need to crouch.  Plus, I can toss them to the objective from far away rather than having to get up on it.

I also love using them from the upstairs rooms in nuketown; I just toss them down from there near the trailers and inevitably someone will jump through the truck or come around the corner and blow up.  Or if they have flak jacket, I shoot them after they trigger it letting me know they're there.

They're good for watching your back from people who have ghost as well, whether they trigger it or hack it and I hear the voice telling me it's been hacked.

EMP genades as mentioned before.  I destroyed two shock charges, a betty and a Guardian in CTF with one EMP grenade, which helped me get a VSAT.

So listen guys, I will probably kick myself for doing this, but you have to start switching out your betties for claymores. Any above average player, especially those with headsets, have become trained to the clicking noise that indicates a betty has been set off, and can easily duck under it, usually with a huge amount of time to spare. I've gotten to the point where it's almost natural in that I can duck under betties while concentrating and winning gun battles at the same time. With that being said, it is completely different for claymores, in that they are almost inescapable when not using Flak Jacket, as long as you place them correctly, which most people do not which is why I put together the following tip. Let me know through replies if you've also become trained to this, I think it's becoming quite the natural thing.



its true. claymores are now the main threat. The Era of the  "Click ***** BOOM" shall come soon.

That is why you put more than one bettie on different levels.

i could give a rats ass which one you use. once the first one catches me or a mate. out comes the emp class and i start raking up free points. i love seeing those little red markers. emp your betty and get me points, teammate wacks you on his way through and i get a few more. it's called the ability to adapt and use teamwork.

Death by a claymore can be avoided by a well timed jump.
