To improve your game, learning how to Slide Cancel can be the difference between life and death. This guide will show how players can perform this move.
Slide Cancelling has been around in the series since Modern Warfare. Through this method, players are able to slow down their forward momentum for more accurate shots and escape certain situations without needing to fully commit to the slide. Sliding is originally used to get behind cover in a quick motion and allows players to continue to take shots at enemies. It may take a while to get the muscle memory down to know when to properly use this method but here’s how players can learn to Slide Cancel.
To Slide Cancel, the player will need to aim down to sights and jump while sliding to cancel it. To do this, sprint a bit and slide while aiming down to sights at the beginning of the slide. The moment the player hits the jump button, they will stand back up and stop the glide moving forward. This is great for preventing players from overshooting the distance between cover and getting close and personal for body and headshots. It’s recommended to practice this movement while playing with bots to test how effective it can be in a real battle.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is planning to begin its first season this upcoming December.
