MW3 point blank kills are basically kills that are done at extremely close range. It essentially means the enemy has to be near touching distance of you to take them out. It also means ensuring these types of kills is hard, and as such, you’ll need to wait for the perfect moment. It also means you’ll barely have the chance to go into ADS mode. 

Given that getting these kills requires you to be extremely close to your enemies, smaller maps are your best friends here. Player movements are very restricted due to the small size, and there are a lot of tight spaces. Taking that into consideration there’s a high chance you’ll find a few within touching distance to take out.

Playlists like the Rustment 24/7 are especially useful here, and are probably the best ones to pick for getting point blank kills. If you’re more of a medium or large map player, look for small and tight spaces within the map, and you may stumble upon enemies going through those areas.

Additionally, using hipfire mode is also a great way to land these kills, as it improves the chance of getting point blank kills. So, you may want to create a perfect build that improves hip-fire accuracy and recoil control.

SMGs and shotguns are the best classes to get MW3 point blank kills as they are suitable for short-range combat, and they pack a punch. Good choices include the HRM-9 and Striker for the SMG and, on the other hand, the Expedite-12 and the Lockwood 680 for the shotgun.

In the Zombies mode, it’s much easier to get point blank kills as Zombies will come towards you which can help you in completing the challenges easily. 

That’s everything you need to know about getting point blank kills in Modern Warfare 3.
