How to Use Battle Rage in MW3

Battle Rage is a Tactical Tool that offers an edge in combat. When equipped, your character will go through a brief animation huffing a gas from a gas mask. This gas boosts your character’s health regeneration, which is particularly useful in intense game modes like Hardpoint. However, you’ll need to reach level 11 in Modern Warfare 3 to unlock the Battle Rage tool. You can keep track of your level from the main lobby, shown in the upper right-hand corner. Here’s how to use Battle Rage:

  • Equip Battle Rage in a custom loadout.
  • During a match, use your tactical button to inhale the gas.
    • Standard button layout is L1 for console.
  • Inhale animation lasts around two seconds.
  • The max duration of the ability is six seconds.

I recommend you use the Battle Rage ability before entering a scenario, because the animation time could get you in some trouble. Battle Rage was initially too strong in MW3, so Sledgehammer Games released a balance adjustment patch. It plans to keep track of it throughout the Beta to ensure it doesn’t overpower the gameplay. Here are the changes made in the patch:

  • Reduced max duration from 10 seconds to six seconds.
  • Kills will no longer increase the effect duration.
  • Health Regeneration now begins upon killing an enemy.
  • Incoming damage will now interrupt health regeneration.
  • Removed increased health regeneration speed.
