Practice Warzone movement in MW3 multiplayer
Although it sounds obvious, practicing the movement in MW3 multiplayer, especially in modes like Ground War, until you understand how it works and get used to it is key. The more you understand the basics of movement in the game, the more advantages you will gain when playing Warzone.
MW3 has a variety of game modes like Cutthroat to improve your gun skill, or private matches, which will allow you to practice alone, with bots, or friends and learn as much as possible. This can help reduce errors, which are crucial to avoid when playing Warzone.
Understand Warzone Urzikstan’s default Perks
Additionally, when entering Warzone Urzikstan, you’ll notice that several movement Perks are active by default. This enables players to significantly improve their motion by utilizing five Perks in a default roster.
- Tac Pads: Improves slide distance, allows for full ADS while sliding, and increases stance transition speeds
- Commando Gloves: Enables reloading while running
- Climbing Boots: Increases climbing and mantling speeds
- Quick-Grip Gloves: Increases your weapon swap speed
- Overkill: Allows you to pick two Primary Weapons
Regarding movement, players will benefit from an increased slide distance, faster stance transitions, the ability to ADS while sliding (Tac Pads), improved climbing and mantling speeds (Climbing Boots), and the option to reload while running (Commando Gloves).
Slide cancel, dropshot & snaking mechanics in Warzone
Since Warzone’s first iteration, the slide cancel, dropshot, and snaking mechanics have grown in popularity. These movement techniques can be used to frenetically escape, travel across the big battle royale maps, or take on enemies with an advantage.
How to slide cancel in Warzone
To slide cancel in Warzone, all you will need to do is combine the following sequence of actions: press crouch twice and jump. Here’s the button sequence depending on which platform you’re playing, keep in mind that buttons can vary depending on which ones you’ve assigned to crouch and jump.
How to snake in Warzone
To snake in Warzone, you’ll need to constantly crouch or go prone while being behind an object. This will allow you to peek over the cover without getting exposed.
To make this mechanic feel as smooth as possible, enable the Tactical controller setting within the Button Layout Preset section, which will allow the crouch button to be mapped to the analog (instead of circle) and help you spam crouch while still aiming correctly.
How to dropshot in Warzone
The perform the dropshot, simply hold the crouch button while aiming down sights. This enables you to quickly shift your position to prone while firing at any short-range enemy. By doing so, you’ll disorient the enemy avoiding them to shoot you effectively by minimizing your body exposure.
Use vertical & horizontal ziplines in Warzone
The introduction of ziplines in Warzone has been widely praised as a QoL improvement, allowing players to swiftly reach higher and travel to distant locations. The Urzikstan update further introduced horizontal ziplines that allow you to cross distant areas from one building to the next.
While ziplines can be an element that exposes you during use, there are effective ways to use them and avoid being easily eliminated.
How to cancel zipline animation & interact faster
To cancel the zipline animation, simply press the interact button while using the zipline. Keep in mind that you’ll exit from the zipline at the height when you press the button.
To interact faster, jump toward the zipline and press the interact button. This will save you almost an extra second which could impact the play you are carrying out.
Another trick that will help you out while using the ziplines is what JGOD calls the “zip hop,” which allows you to avoid getting stuck in the animation and default end position. To do this, you’ll have to hold back your joystick (controller) or S key (PC) and press jump right at the end.
This will allow you to end the zipline’s route higher than it usually would. It’s important to know that this may take some time to master as it depends on timing control.
