Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Cheats for PS3

Trophies, unlockables, and cheats for the PlayStation 3 version

Although it doesn't support cheats codes like the PC version, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on PlayStation 3 has its fair share of trophies and secrets to unlock in both single-player and multiplayer modes.

These cheats are for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on PS3, but some information may also apply to versions for other platforms.

How to Get the M.O.A.B.

To receive the Mother Of All Bombs (M.O.A.B.) as a strike package, get your killstreak up to 25 by executing 25 consecutive unassisted kills using just your weapon (don't use Pointstreak). The M.O.A.B. destroys all opponents on the map and disables their equipment, electronics, and pointstreaks for 60 seconds. The team who called the bomb wins double XP for the remaining duration of the match.

How to Unlock Gold Camo for Weapons

Score 1,000 kills with a weapon in multiplayer mode to unlock a gold camo skin for that weapon.

How to Reduce Lag in Multiplayer

To reduce lag while playing online, select Options from the multiplayer menu. Then, disable Theater Recording. If you still have problems, there could be an issue with the internet connection.
