A modern warfare 2 player managed to reach max level in less than 24 hours of playtime – all without getting a single kill.
This player goes by the appropriate name ThatFriendlyGuy, and he’s been chasing pacifist victories in Escape from Tarkov for a while before taking on this Call of Duty challenge. Turns out, it’s not that stressful to be successful as a Modern Warfare 2 player with no kills if you’re just playing the damn aim.
ThatFriendlyGuy has largely focused on objective-based modes such as Hardpoint and Kill Confirmed. The pacifist path to max level 55 is mostly about getting assists and assisting with objective captures. Shoot down drones, mark enemies for your teammates to take out, and drop a riot shield to defend objectives.
You can see a lot more in the video below (via Eurogamer (opens in a new tab)), but ThatFriendlyGuy notes that by the time he unlocked everything for the ideal pacifist loadout, he was consistently finishing matches in the top three for his team and finished the challenge with a 1.4 win ratio.
With 23 hours and 25 minutes on the clock, 138 games played and a K/D ratio of, uh, zero, that’s an impressive feat, and in a Reddit post (opens in a new tab) on accomplishment, ThatFriendlyGuy speculates that it “could really be a faster way than leveling up for your average game-playing Joe”.
These are the stats it took me to reach 55 in Call of Duty with no kills, 240 score per minute is really insane, and all in less than 24 hours of play too! pic.twitter.com/SwfnS0moNBNovember 17, 2022
We saw a the pacifist crosses GTA 5 and one play without attack of Elden Ring, but pacifist races are much less common in multiplayer games – largely because you’d think all your teammates would hate you if you never killed the enemy team. But ThatFriendlyGuy’s success in COD makes me wonder what multiplayer would be like if we could find a player who both kills enemies. and plays the goal. Hmm. We may never know.
