One of the types of operator kills you can get in Modern Warfare 3 is Operator Kingslayer Kills. These are generally not that hard to obtain but in certain situations can be very tricky to get. Getting Kingslayer Kills is very important as these will help you progress in the game by making you better and more efficient.

In this guide, I'll explain how to get Operator Kingslayer kills in MW3.

What are Operator Kingslayer Kills?

Operator Kingslayer kills are what you get by killing the top player on the scoreboard of a multiplayer match in Modern Warfare 3. After killing the player who is leading the scoreboard of a match, you'll get a popup text in the scorefeed that says 'Killslayer'.

Getting Operator Kingslayer kills is crucial to completing the daily and weekly challenges in Modern Warfare 3, which will lead you to unlock certain attachments and skins in the game. As such, any player will benefit from looking to get these coveted kills. 

Tips to earn Operator Kingslayer Kills quickly

The best way to get Operator Kingslayer kills is by playing the 6v6 modes like Team Deathmatch and Free-For-All. 24/7 Maps like Rustment are also a good option here, as these have smaller maps. As such, you'll have the opportunity to eliminate the players of the opposing team.

The top player also very rarely changes in these types of modes, and are usually easy to identify as they will likely have forked out a bit of cash for a unique or rare operator skin. That said, you'll still need to be immensely skilled to take them out, as they are likely better than you at the game (no offence).

If you have a UAV equipped, then you can use it to locate the opposing team operators, including the one who is at the top of the scoreboard. Getting Operator Kingslayer kills in private matches does not count as official. As such, getting these via these types of matches won't count towards the challenges. You must get these via the multiplayer modes to make them count towards the challenges.

That is everything you need to know about getting Operator Kingslayer kills in Modern Warfare 3. We also have guides on getting Fury Kills and Operator Kills in the game, so be sure to check these out as well.
