I don't know how I am so bad at this game. I've played many online multiplayer games before, and I have never been terrible at anything, except for Halo.
So I've played about 35 games so far, and my best game I went 12-7-12. I have still never had a positive KDR. I just don't know why I am so terrible. It seems like I can put my entire assault rifle clip into the enemy, and they will live, and then they turn around and kill me in one or two shots.
I've tried every strategy, from being really aggressive, to crawling around and waiting for enemies to come. I've tried staying with teammates, and running off on my own. Nothing works for me. Is it just that my aim really sucks, or what? If so, what weapons are good for someone who has absolutely zero skill at all, and what strategies should I be doing?
Focus on not dying more than you are focusing on getting kills. Know the map and know where the enemy is on the map, where they are spawning, where they will likely go. Watch your radar but not your radar exclusively. If you are inaccurate, avoid close quarter encounters and use cover like it's your job.
You've only played 35 games, don't beat yourself up. I'm not the best damn player on the boards, I consider myself a casual, but it isn't hard to do well once you know the maps and their flow.

First step is to stop using the Assault Rifle, and any other rapid fire starter gun like the Suppressor and Storm. Use the DMR, so you can fight at range and not have to get so close. Also, try to always stay near cover and pretend the open centers of the map do not exist. Don't go there.
That will help you initially. I can help you if you want.

Okay, I listened to all your advice and I think I'm doing a lot better now. I had my first positive game, 9-11-7, and a game with the most kills, 17, but 18 deaths. I'm really starting to like the DMR. Thanks for all your input.
