by Aaron Wein ; Updated September 22, 2017

The "Call of Duty" franchise has become one of the most popular and highly acclaimed games for console first-person shooter enthusiasts. The Nintendo Wii version of the game differs from both the Xbox 360 and PS3 titles drastically due to the use of the Wii's motion controller. Instead of solely relying on thumb sticks and buttons for movement, you must also utilize the remote's motion capabilities.

Use the nunchuck's thumb stick to move forward, backward and side to side.

Aim by pointing the Wii Remote.

Hold the "Z" button on the Nunchuck to look down your weapon's sights. This allows you to aim more accurately.

Press the "B" button on the Wii Remote to fire your weapon.

Reload by waving the nunchuck back and forth.

Jump by pressing up on the Wii Remote's directional pad

Change weapons by pushing right on the Wii Remote's directional pad.

Melee by pushing down on the Wii Remote's directional pad.

Toss a grenade by pushing the "-" or "+" buttons on the Wii Remote.

Crouch or stand by pressing "C" on the nunchuck. Hold "C" to go prone.
