School’s out for evaaaa.
Now that I’m finally done with finals, I can start focusing my attention back to the site, as opposed to Newtonian Laws of Physics.
Ever since I got COD4, I haven’t gotten enough time to rock the single player mode (I just finished the campaign today). Everybody was warning me about this “Ferris Wheel” part of the game where it’s “totally impossible to beat dude.” After planting my claymores and bracing for this monumental event, I watched as these asswipes infiltrated the premises via helicopter.
I shot nearly all of them as they slid down their ropes, but the horde on the ground was too much. Invisible dog attack here, followed by an impossible grenade toss, followed by some jerk shooting me through solid metal…I was losing it! I even tried hiding in the poisonous gas section. Needless to say that didn’t work.
Then I fully came to understand my hypothesis behind this game:
If you’re dying too much, you’re firing too much. In other words, if you’re in a stalemate against an endless amount of opponents, you need to kill some of them, and advance your position.
The ferris wheel however is a little bit tricker. Since there is an X amount of time until your tardy-ass air support arrives, the name of the game is long length survival.
Right before I leave for work, I decided to give this ferris wheel one last shot.
Standing underneath the ferris wheel, I take out as many of the helicopter asswipes. Immediately following, I head behind the building on the far right (next to the path where the main horde enters). I realized that I had found a sweet spot where no one could find me and tested it by taking a leak while I left the game unpaused. Upon my return, I was alive as the air support landed.
Disclaimer – This has not been Veteran tested yet. I know there are other ferris wheel exploits that haven’t seemed to work on Veteran, but this one is worth a shot.
