Improve Your Aim
Aiming is what you do all the time, but doing it with the best accuracy possible is what you need to learn in order to improve your aim along with spray control. There about three (3) different categories of aiming: close range, mid-range and long range.
Most of your fight will be in close range and it’s very high risk zone, because the slightest mistake you make in close range will send you back to the lobby. Whereas, in mid range and long range you can easily get away from the enemies. In this regard, it is recommended that your work on and improve your close range combat skills first.
The fastest way to get better at close range combat is by playing a lot of Team Death Matches (TDM). But not just TDMs, you can also play Domination, or HardPoint in a small map like Shipment (in Call of Duty). This is where you can rapidly improve your aim, recoil control and movement speed.

While playing TDM, try playing as aggressively as possible and push your opponents base as hard as you can to show them what you got. When you post real hard, you scare your opponents and this gives you the upper-hand. Also, aggressively gameplay implies that you need to move a lot, thus, results in the improvement of your movements speed and skill. You should also try to focus on improving on crouching, sliding, jumping and dropshot technique. Try shifting from left and right to dodge the bullets (jiggle movement).
Improve Hip-fire Accuracy
Everyone has their own ways of practicing hip-fire. But if you are a gyroscope player then the best way to learn how to use gyro for Hip-firing is by setting your ADS sensitivity to 1%, so you’ll fully rely on gyro and now practice the new 1% ADS sensitivity in TDM to understand how it will impact your gaming experience.
But if your not a gyroscope player, don’t worry you can still learn but you’ll need to do a lot more practice.
Tips to improve Hip-fire even further
- Always aim for headshots, of from the chest area and upwards to the head. This is because headshots will deal more critical damage to your opponents. Also try to maintain your crosshair at the enemies’ head level. When enemies hide behind a cover, you can quickly get an instant headshot when they come out of cover to shoot or peek. Try practicing these in TDM.
- Pre-fire: Prefiring (or prefire) means when a player fires their weapon before they see the enemy. This has a huge impact on your close combat skills and the more you use it the better you understand it. To ensure that you do not empty your weapon magazine before you meet the enemy, try to use the maximum magazine capacity of the specific weapon you’re carrying.
Game sense is like common sense in games. It could take a while to improve and master, as your game sense might differ across different games. This will help you strategize, plan best tactics, and make quick decisions on how best to attack your opponents. How you improve your game sense depends on your ability to process information and the situation at hand, and use it all to your advantage. You can improve your game sense by just natuarally playing the game or watch professional players you know you can learn from. YouTube is a good place to start, by searching your favourite game title.
