It's not difficult, but I find Reapers boring as hell. Most high streaks, in fact... though the Pave Low can be a nice "fire and forget" weapon.
I got a reaper in my first game with the default UMP class. That was TDM though, didn't have the rank for dom. Can't imagine dom being much harder though, lol.
If you need help use Portable Radar. It won't get everyone so you still have to be watchful, but your score will likely go up. That thing is so much better than the BO version.
Listen to Smoke he went from terrible to the player that is often the difference between win/loss.
He rushes and plays the objective more than anyone on c4b 360 right now
Cod4Boards NEVER FORGET!!!!
I learned to rush on MW2 with the MP5k. I went negative a LOT but my score was way higher than camping. I think it took about 1300 kills to unlock e-mags. Time I did that I was starting to get the feel for map dynamics.
I can understand why guys like Sandy have gone back to MW2. Being able to predict the spawns is a skill that makes you a better player. Having some guy spawn in your ass with FMG9s when you are 1 off your Reaper or whatever just pisses you off.
I prefer the Overwatch actually because 50% of the time I take cover for the reaper I get killed while calling it in either due to the stupid spawns or the lack of 'hiding' spots on these maps, plus I like that I can put 1-2 bullets into someone and have my "attack dog" finish them.
Funny they can put in 900 head glitch spots but no places that are away from the action for the 15 seconds it takes to use a reaper.
Dom is all about spawn controlling, which is hard when the in game mechanics fuck up spawns with "revenge spawning". If you want alot of kills, play kill confirmed or demolition, but only play demolition with a good team because if your teammates suck, you will get curb stomped. Kill confirmed sometimes has alot of campers so be wary of that.
If you just want killstreaks, use a gun you are familiar with and like with an effective setup. I don't know if you prefer smgs or assault rifles, but assault rifles are better for camping and smgs are more suited for rushing. Heres a good overall class for you:
G36c silencer +kick (add attachments and red dot if you cant deal with iron sights). Highest DPS rifle is the ak-47 because it does 49-25 damage and has the longest range. Lowest recoil rifle is either the MK-14 or the ACR 6.8. Attachments do matter greatly, because they can help a weapon's weaknesses or bolster their strengths, but each weapon works well with different attachments. Silencers are useful for obtaining high killstreaks because it keeps your position much more hidden than firing openly. With the amount of people who rely on their radar, you definately want to stay off of it.
For secondaries, use MP9 silencer (if you want akimbo, use either mp9s or skorpions for longer ranges) Alternatively you can use a stinger and take out 2 uavs to add 2 points to your streak every life. Combined with hardline its a great setup.
If you're a pistol guy, the best all around one is the p99. If you want a power pistol, use the .44 magnum because its better than the mp412(better range and faster reload) and the desert eagle (MUCH less recoil). Don't silence any pistols, it makes them pathetically weak.
Perks depend on your gameplay style, id go with the following.
Scavenger (unless you conserve ammo well) or Sleight of Hand (just helps all around)
Hardline (makes it easier to get killstreaks, pro helps alot) Or Assassin if you are more campy. Blast shield/overkill arent really all that useful compared to the other red perks. Quickdraw can be great if you are rushing without an smg, but isnt really needed for defense.
Third perks are basically all personal preference. Dead silence is good for both rushing and camping, steady aim is more for rushing, sitrep isnt really needed for defense, marksman is actually really good if you are looking across long sight lines. This perk slot is more about what works for YOU and makes you comfortable.
Equipment - As far as lethal goes, I usually pick c4 because it is fast to deploy and has an impressive blast radius (usually kills someone even with blast shield). The other choices arent bad, although I'd say claymore>betties because betties usually arent as reliable. Frag/semtex are both good, basically equal. Throwing knives I wouldn't suggest unless you are using a riot shield setup.
Tactical - The best equipment for streaks is usually the portable radar, because you can use it to cover your blindside to see if someone is sneaking up on you . Is useful when playing solo since you can't rely on randoms to get constant UAVS. However, assassin negates this, and you will be vulnerable to assassin users. Flash and stuns arent bad, but are used more for rushing than defending. Tactical insertion CAN be useful for flanking, but it dosent really help you while you are alive at all. Trophy system is good for hardcore camping or holding down an objective. Overall id say use portable radar because it is powerful and has unlimited uses.
For killstreaks, use things that can help you get to your goal. If you run assault and want a reaper, use predator (5) heli (7) then reaper (9). That way, you might be able to get a reaper with 5 kills.
Deathstreaks don't really matter because no matter what you pick, its an unfair advantage. Id say the least homoerotic deathstreak would be juiced, however.
In order to defend bases, try to figure out where opponents are rushing from and where they are going to. Watch teammates' movements to find out where enemies are even if you have no uavs. You see a green dot disappear? Theres most likely an enemy there that just killed him. This sort of instinct isnt really something I can explain in words effectively, its something that you will have to eventually learn by playing the game and playing it alot. You will see patterns in other people's gameplay that will help you guesstimate where the enemy is. You see someone camping at a certain spot for 3 matches in a row? Chances are he isnt the only player who knows about that spot. Mark it in your mind and try to check that spot whenever you walk by to make sure you arent going to die from a camper.
I think i've typed enough, lol. Hopefully this helps and I didn't leave too much info out. Goodluck.
Not every enemy should be killed. You should let them go if you have less than 70% chance of killing them. Like when they run behind a wall and you shoot them two times and do not kill them only to be killed by them later because you gave out your position to them. Or when you try to kill a sniper with an SMG.
Use your team mates as your UAV. The place where your team mates are in can not have enemies. The place your team mate stay in is the goal of your enemy. You want to be flanking them from the rear. That should give you a really good picture of the map without the UAV or anything else. Flanking takes time but when done right, it rewards you easy kills. I am waiting for my gameplay to be uploaded so you can see what I mean.
Tactical insertions is the best thing for Domination. Place it near the flag C or A and when the tide of battle changes, kill yourself. BAM! Easy 4 kills and you protected two flags at the same time

Learn how the game work and cover your backside is all it take IMO. Your team mate on the other side of the map mean enemy will be spawning around you. Things like this is all it take to be a good player.

Big thanks to Sunfirmation for Sig
Scanning Campers since 1985
There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.
Don't play for your killstreaks!!!
By all means put them on your setup but don't go looking for them.Just play the game,go for the objectives and you will be rewarded.
If your thinking about it all the time then you'll be distracted from playing well enough to obtain them.
