Ask A Veteran is a part of the Call of Duty Wiki

Use Template:Userbox Veteran if you are a part of the program!

Ask A Veteran is a way for players new to a particular Call of Duty game, or simply have a question, to find their answers from an experienced gamer.


  • To help new or inexperienced players find a more veteran gamer to help answer a question or teach tactics
  • Work to write a series of weapons' guides for the Call of Duty series


  • Keep it polite, follow COD:UTP.
  • Don't ask stupid questions (i.e. "Why do grenade launchers do more damage than a pistol?") that are common sense. Questions about weapon damage values are fine (i.e. "Does the SCAR-H do more damage at long-range than the M16A4?") because they are sensible.
  • Don't answer if you do not know what you are talking about.
  • Take the question "Does the SCAR-H do more damage at long-range than the M16A4?", a good answer would be "No, the damage multipliers for both weapons are identical at all ranges." A bad answer would be "The SCAR uses a bigger bullet than the M16 so yeah." The purpose of Ask A Veteran is to provide intelligent, informed answers, based on in-game statistics.
  • Do not add yourself to either the Veteran or Experienced Players sections without proof that you have a moderate understanding of Call of Duty dynamics and tactics. Provide these on the talk page with a request
  • Do not add a guide without prior discussion, the purpose of this is to provide good answers from experience and knowledge, not a hastily-written or biased how-to guide. Propose and organize these on the talk page

Veteran Descriptions

In both the veteran and experienced sections, a player is listed first with specialty, then console(s), a link to that user's page, and a short description of that users Call of Duty accomplishments.


A user is denoted by a single specialty title.

  • Gameplay - this denotes a user that is skilled in games overall and can provide information on both the campaign and multiplayer of the games he or she has played.
  • Tactics - a user that is skilled in multiplayer tactics above all else
  • Mechanics - one who has a greater understanding of game mechanics but is not particularly skilled in gameplay
  • Overall - one who has extensive knowledge of gameplay and game mechanics and can provide aid in almost all subjects of Call of Duty.


A user can be denoted by none or all (both representing a broad knowledge) or any combination of the console titles.

  • Xbox - denotes a user that has knowledge of Call of Duty on the Xbox
  • PS - a user that has knowledge of the Play Station versions of Call of Duty, may be followed by "2", "3", or "P" depending on the Play Station models the user is familiar with.
  • NDS - owns and has knowledge of the Nintendo DS versions of Call of Duty
  • Wii or Gamecube - knowledge of Nintendo versions of the Call of Duty games
  • Phone - a user that is able to provide assistance with phone application versions of Call of Duty


This tells the community the user's accomplishments in Call of Duty, the following guidelines are used:

  • User's current level and Prestige (if applicable)
  • Completion of Call of Duty, and which game titles.
  • If the user has experience in the less-known Call of Duty games (phone, NDS, and the older games)
  • Pronouns should be avoided, make a linear list of their accomplishments.
  • Sentence structure does not have to be used.
  • User proper grammar and spelling, we are trying to look neat and professional here.

Please use these guidelines to describe a user when adding them to whichever list they fall under, for consistency in formatting and to display the information relevant to any who might have questions to ask of a Veteran, thank you.
