015 Sea Snipers Author & Illustrate COD WaW Guide

Call of Duty World at War: Strategy Guide
Multiplayer Authors & Illustrators


Download PDF Guide
Brady Games hired us to write and illustrate the entire multiplayer section of the Call of Duty World at War Signature Series Strategy Guide.

Here's a quote...

• A complete walkthrough, leading players through every mission.

• AREA MAPS: Detailed maps calling out items, weapons, critical locations, and more!

• WEAPON LISTING: In-depth listing of all weapons with expert tactics on how best to use them

• MULTIPLAYER COVERAGE: Extensive multiplayer coverage with strategies for solo and team-based gameplay

• UNLOCKABLES: All unlockables revealed!

• Signature Series guide features bonus foldout and more!

We did not have a lot of time to do this. Rougly 3-4 weeks tops. We had a lot of stumbling blocks along the way but we managed to compile over a hundred pages of content for the MP section including everything from weapons charts to map and mode tactics. We choreographed and shot all of the screenshots in the guide as well as detailed every weapon, perk, mode and map. The maps look great and are accurate down to the box and barrel. The guide should drop around the release of the game 11.11.08 so check it out.

Big thanks to Yetizai, Snakebite and Midnight for their tireless work on this project, and Wally, Shooter and Bassani for their help as well. We didn't get to go out to Treyarch to work on this one, but we did get to work on full versions of the game via de-bug units supplied by Brady. We had a lot of fun and put in a lot of hours, so if you haven't seen us around, that's what we've been up to. Brady Games had offered us the Socom Confrontation guide too, but we had to turn it down. The deadline for the Socom guide was just too tight. Sorry to all of our Socom friends.

Hope you all enjoy the guide and we will work on trying to put the maps public for everyone to use.

Best,

[SS]Rator & The Sea Snipers®

I may switch back to COD just for the guide. I base all my game playing on the quality of their guides, and Socom just isn't cutting it.

I wish we could have done the Socom project too, but with COD5, we just didn't have the time.

lol yep, actually, Socom 3 (our first project) we only got the back page credits, but the past 3 Brady titles we've done (Socom CA, COD4 and COD5) we've been on the front cover of all of them and in the back.

I'm excited to see the finished product myself. There is a lot of hours of work in there and I had the really easy job compared to Rator.
