How to get kills while strafing in Modern Warfare 3

For camo challenges that require you to get kills while ADS (aiming-down-sights) and strafing, ADS your weapon and move sideways while keeping your aim on the target and trying to eliminate them (first image). To get hipfire kills while strafing, simply move side-to-side without ADSing (second image).

I highly suggest you incorporate this technique into your gameplay, as strafing makes you a more difficult target to hit. If you're having trouble killing enemies, try out Hardcore mode, as you'll be able to eliminate enemies faster.

To improve your ability to get strafing kills, you should try the Stalker Boots perk, as it increases both your strafing and ADS movement speed. Furthermore, the attachments you're using on your weapon play an important role as well. I've explained this below with recommended builds for the guns.

To unlock the Forged mastery camo on the DG-58 Assault Rifle, you'll need to get 10 kills while ADS and strafing with the weapon. For this challenge, you can use the build above as it has attachments such as the XRK Edge underbarrel and Hardened stock that increase the ADS movement speed and overall movement speed (second image).

To get the Priceless camo for the DG-58 LSW LMG, you're tasked with scoring 25 hipfire kills while strafing with the gun. This can be made easy if you equip hipfire spread improvement attachments on your weapon, such as the muzzle, laser, and underbarrel I've used above.
