    AC-130 Killstreak Guide

    AC-130



    Using the AC-130
    If there are targets in a building, try firing directly outside doors or windows as splash damage will travel inside and kill nearby players.
    Don't rely on just the 105mm, it takes a while to reload and ticks off precious seconds that could be used to score another kill with the 40mm or even the 25mm cannons.
    The AC-130 can easily destroy other killstreaks since it flies at a high altitude.
    If people are ganging up to shoot down the AC-130, the player should take them out quickly because the AC-130 can only deflect two rockets with its angel flares.
    If playing an objective game such as Capture the Flag, players should launch 105mm shells at the enemy flag to kill ambushers. It is recommended to watch out for teammates that are attacking the objective on Hardcore modes, as the player can kill a teammate with Friendly Fire, this can force the player to sit out and lose the AC-130.
    Getting an AC-130 killstreak is relatively difficult because it requires 11 kills to acquire, or 10 using Hardline, and the percentage of an AC-130 in a Care Package and/or Emergency Airdrop is not even 8%.
    The AC-130 is not as effective on maps with lots of buildings, as they offer cover to enemy players.
    The player using the AC-130 will hear a warning siren when a missile is tracking them; if the missile is diverted there will be a beeping sound similar to one onboard an airplane, when flares are launched.
    For large groups, use the 105mm or the 40mm. To take precision shots in busy combat zones (especially in hardcore modes), it is wise to use the 25mm Gatling Gun.
    Because using the 25mm Gatling gun displays your view at the highest zoom, making it very difficult to track more than one or two players in close proximity of each other, it is advisable to use the 40mm cannon on single foot-mobiles due to its rapid fire, greater damage radius, and wider view area.
    When using the 105mm shells or the 40mm cannon, pay attention to the "range to target" (time difference between fired shot and shell impact) as well as the damage radius. Careful consideration of both of these factors will allow you to effectively "lead" your targets (aiming in front of a moving target) in order to minimize close misses which waste valuable time.

    Against The AC-130
    If an enemy AC-130 is in the air, switch to a class with Cold-Blooded and a Stinger Missile launcher. Players should team up with a friend or use Scavenger to destroy the AC-130 with 3 missiles. Sleight of Hand can also be effective for firing two missiles off quickly. However, the AC-130 may randomly fire it's flares without being provoked to do so. This can be your chance to shoot it down so be observant. Also, whenever the AC-130 pops it's flares it makes a noise that can be heard if you are not being shot at or if it is not firing.
    Walking in open ground is nothing more than suicide for those without Cold-Blooded. Try to remain under solid cover and avoid any openings.
    Avoid calling in Helicopters or Harriers because the AC-130 gunner can easily destroy them. Airstrikes and Stealth Bombers can be called in as the enemy gunner will likely not be ready when the aircraft arrives.
    If the player is watching the minimap when the AC-130 is aloft, players may notice a small airplane icon on the outside, that is where the gunship is facing the map. This can give the player a rough idea as to where to hide and when to move if the gunship exploits the player's hiding spot. This may not be necessary if the player is in a room deep inside a building, or in the basement of a house where there are almost no openings that could kill the player.
    A Predator Missile can destroy an AC-130, but only if the missile banks hard to the side of the map that the AC-130 is on. In other words, the player would have to be both very lucky and very observant.
    Beware, Cold-Blooded only protects you from showing up on thermals. If you are next to a teammate and the AC-130 fires on the teammate it is very likely that you will also be killed.



    Class To Obtain the AC-130:
    ACR/silencer
    Stinger
    Scavenger
    Stopping power
    Ninja
    Stuns+Semtex
    painkiller
    Killstreaks:
    predator
    Harrier
    AC-130

    Very nice killstreak guide, I like it, but instead of the ACR/Silenced I'd use maybe the AK47 or the m4a1.

    some of us like to still play legit, so i reckon use chopper gunner, easier to take someone out deploying a jav or stinger, you'll sometimes have to wait for the reload or the time it takes for the actual bullet to hit, seeing tho your 250,000 meters in the air.
