Learn Various Online Strategies For Uncharted 3

You've seen the review. And after finishing the unparalleled campaign, you'll want to expand your Uncharted 3 experience.

So that's when you jump online and give the multiplayer a try. In a new trailer, Naughty Dog game designer Robert Cogburn talks about various strategies you can use to earn victory. He addresses stealth kills (which always give you a medal), and the Iron Fist feature. Basically, if you do enough damage to an enemy with your firearm, you can go in and finish him with a special melee attack.

Personally, I like the idea of kicking someone off a ledge. They're just hanging there and you run up and kick 'em away...it's just funny. There's a lot of fun to be had online with Drake's Deception and in a fall dominated by two giant shooters, this offers a nice, refreshing change of pace.

I never got into the U2 MP but I will get into U3 MP! This sounds like a lot of fun. I didn't play the beta because I want to be surprised by everything when I play SP and MP. Everything takes a back seat on 11/1/11.

Most of these tactics are easy to learn, my favorite one that worked in UC2 was blindtossing a grenade behind on the ground whilst someone's chasing you down. They'll either leave you alone backing off or die :)

that iron fist technique is the only damn thing i hate about uncharted 3. i use it when i get pissed because everyone in the damn room is doing it. it doesnt play like uncharted anymore. everyone is just doing hipfire and melee. noone aims, noone hides, and most of the maps are geared toward this iron fist technique. if i'm aiming down the sights and hitting you with my gun from a decent distance, you shouldn't be able to rush at me hipfiring then melee me to kill me. whats worse is i almost empty a clip on them while they hipfire and hit me with 3 bullets and a melee and i die(they show it happening in the video). hipfiring and melee combination is too overpowered in the game. most of the time i just run into people running with their micro pistol hipfiring and melee attacking everyone. combine that with the changes they made to the guns and aiming down the sights is pretty much useless in the game now. i'd say they made the game cod friendly and i hate that.

one thing i wish they did too was power weapons should spawn at different locations. i mean what was that boost for if you know where they are anyway. i've been playing some 3 team deathmatch recently and people always go for the shotgun. its not a problem, it just gets kinda annoying.

The technique was the same in Uncharted 2, though it worked better with a pistol than long ranged and far less people dared trying it. Only problem is that since there's a sprint option now everyone's doing it.
