Call of Duty Modern Warfare – How to Aim Better

First and foremost, the crosshair is a key shooting element you need to master. Adjusting the crosshair is crucial, as nailing a headshot is way more effective than spraying bullets all over your opponent’s body. While you might score a few kills like that, in the long haul, headshots are where it’s at. They not only take out your foe quickly but also save you ammo, meaning you won’t have to reload as frequently.


Next up, learn to shoot while on the move. In a game like Call of Duty Modern Warfare, staying mobile is vital. Sure, shooting on the go can be tricky since your aim moves with you, but if you get the hang of it, no one will stand a chance against you in a one-on-one. So, keep practicing, and soon you’ll be your team’s MVP.


Tweak your sensitivity. If you notice your aim endlessly “circling around your enemy,” your sensitivity might be too high. Turn it down a notch and give it another whirl. Keep adjusting until it feels just right. Conversely, if your aim struggles to keep up with a moving target, your sensitivity is likely too low. Bump it up a smidge and retest, repeating until you’re comfy.


Master strafe aiming. When taking shots at a distant enemy, strafe in the same direction they’re moving while firing. In my book, this is a way more precise and user-friendly method to “aim” at a moving target (using the left strafe stick) rather than relying on your right stick. For the best results, combine strafe aiming with minor adjustments from the right stick.
