Ghosts is the latest entry in the worldwide phenomenon known as Call of Duty.

If you are reading this, you are no doubt a Call of Duty fanatic like myself. As any fan would, you are always looking for the best CoD guide and tactics to beat your competitors and improving your kill death ratio.

Call of Duty Ghosts Safeguard Mode Strategy:

You can neither start Safeguard with your custom Loadout nor loot enemies for weapons. For weapons and perks, you are primarily dependent upon Support Drops. Support Drop has a bar in the top-left corner of the screen right next to weapon level bar and weapon level.

This bar gets filled up by getting kills. Once the Support Drop bar fills up, you will receive random weapons and perks from these care packages.

At the very first round of the game, you will receive different Care Packages having various Killstreaks. After the first round, these Care Packages drop after every five rounds i.e. 6, 11, 16, and so on.

Perks work exactly in the same way as they do in Multiplayer Mode. And as I have mentioned before, you can only receive these perks via Support Drops.

For more information about each perk in the game, refer to our Call of Duty: Ghosts Perks Guide!

Ghost is an ally bot which can help you stay alive along with ripping enemies apart. While playing the Solo Mode, you get a Ghost after every twenty rounds. As for the Multiplayer Mode, you will get a single Ghosts for a complete run. Ghosts are able to absorb a good amount of damage but they can get killed pretty easily and therefore, it is your duty to keep enemies away from them.

Once you start the Safeguard Mode, you will be equipped with a handgun. Weapons can be obtained by killing enemies and looting Support Drops. Players can carry two primary weapons at the same time and if they one of their primary weapon for another, the previous weapon is lost forever.

Since enemies try to flank you from all sides; it is advised that you stick to something that has a good range and damage. The weapons looted from Support Drops become better at higher waves.

Unlike the Extinction Mode, when you get downed in Safeguard Mode, you get unlimited ammo for your weapon and your Ghost will be able to revive you. And in case, you don’t have a Ghost, you bleed out in thirty seconds.

While playing with a full party, your teammates would be able to revive you within thirty seconds. However, if you die while in Last Stand, you respawn at the beginning of next wave.

Killing enemies also grant you with Power-Ups like additional ammo and weapon levels. Random enemies will drop in these Power-Ups which when picked up will either grant you a full ammo restock for your whole team or your weapon level will increase by one level.

Your IED Grenades and Flash Bangs also get restocked with these Power-Ups. However, you will not be able to use two IED Grenades at the same time. If you throw in a third IED Grenade despite of having other two; the first one will explode automatically.

During the fourth round of Safeguard, you start receiving Field Orders. However, unlike the Multiplayer Mode, these Field Orders are team-based and your whole team must complete these to receive a Mini Gun with explosive ammo for sixty seconds.

The best way to play Safeguard is to play it with friends. Even at the beginning rounds, the enemies can overwhelm you quite easily. And since you cannot get a Ghost before 20th wave, it is a good idea to have friends along.

The best strategy involves camping. You need to look for an area with two entrances at maximum and head inside. In this way, you would be able to revive your teammates in a more safe environment with your teammates backing you up. As for getting weapons and perks, you can go out during looting rounds.

You need to avoid getting downed as much as possible because it not only disturbs the pace of the game but you also lose your perks over the course of time.

As for the Solo Mode, there are no hard and fast rules as it is really very challenging.

Using the same camping strategy in Solo Mode may not work as you will get overwhelmed by enemies eventually, and your Ghost will appear on the twentieth wave, you will have to survive a long time before getting him.

You need to find a place with a quick escape route which you could use for a quick escape if enemies overwhelm you and then flank them from behind. You also need to make sure to have a long-ranged weapon to keep a safe distance between you and enemies.
