Do Not Sway Your Aim

Remember to keep your mouse movement (especially the vertical aim) to minimum while firing. Keeping calm even in a sudden encounter will allow more shots to connect to your target.

Don't aim your guns just by using your hands! Strafing to align your horizontal aim is a good way to practice keeping your aim still in a gunfight.

ADS for Mid-Long Range & Hipfire for Close Range

 ADS for Mid-Long Range & Hipfire for Close Range

You will not always have to aim down your sights before firing. Although it will help you be more accurate in mid-long range engagements, ADS will also limit your field of vision, require a moment to aim your gun, and make it harder to aim for closer targets.

Anticipate Your Target

Aim Your Crosshair on Point of Entry

Make habit to point your crosshair on places that you think the enemy's head might pop up while traversing. You will have better chance of winning a gunfight if you already have your aim aligned.

Use Different Angle of Engagement

Keep your enemies guessing where your next point of engagement will be. Try to engage from an angle where the enemy will not suspect. Using prone and crouching can also accomplish this.

Prone & Crouch for Steadier Shots

Engaging enemies while crouching or in prone will not only make you a smaller target, but will force the enemy to adjust their aim downwards before shooting, giving you an advantage to align your shots first.

Mount Your Guns to Reduce Recoil

Mounting your weapon onto the sides of obstacles will allow you to reduce the recoil of your weapon when firing. Make it a habit of mounting your weapons to increase your accuracy and constantly hit your targets.
