Tips to Get Better with Assault Rifle
What makes you a good player other than the knowledge of maps and your team play? Your aim.
Let’s look into some ways you can get better at the art of aiming;
Placement of Crosshair
Player who knows how to pull-off a headshot, is always the more dangerous one.
Always try to practice by placing your crosshair on the head of the opponent because one-shot kill is better than giving your enemy a chance to retaliate.
Your crosshair placement is the key to improving your aim so why not indulge in practicing it. Go for the corner of the wall or an obstacle. This way you will need to move very less of your crosshair while aiming.
Another crucial point to remember for you, is the distance. While you are peeking around a corner, make sure that you have a habit of aiming for the head.
Learn the maps.
The more familiar you are with the maps, the better you know your enemy’s defense tactics. Use the technique of pre-aiming. It will help you to be ready to take the shot as soon as the enemy comes from behind the lines.
Note: Your enemy might think that you are cheating because of how quickly you will aim.
Your Movement and Shooting Matters
Learn to move precisely during combat while keeping your aim still intact.
Either you are going in for the sidestep or strafe shooting, always try to keep your motion such as it doesn’t hurt your aim. Your motion should be in sync with your shooting.
Tip: While strafing, you lose your precision of your aim and as soon as you stop strafing, you slide for a short while. So, to make sure that your aim is accurate, tap in the opposite direction (only once).
While you are shooting at your enemy, always move right and left to make sure that you are not an easy target to shoot and do that while keeping your aim.
Yes, it requires practice and you need to put in the effort.
Go slower, aim better and try to hit the same spot again and again. Gradually build the pace of your game or you might risk losing under the pressure of combat.
Learning the Spray Patterns
Begin to learn the spray patterns because if you don’t know how to control the recoil your gun, it will get harder for you to control your aim and you might lose on a straight-shooting battle with your opponent.
Let us tell you something for a fact,
When you are playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, only the first couple of bullets go where you are aiming, rest of them move into different directions depending upon the recoil pattern of your gun.
It is also called the spray pattern. Every gun has its own spray pattern that shows the direction in which the crosshair is going to move in.
How to learn spray pattern?
The simplest and most effective way to learn and better your game with rifle is to empty a magazine on a wall. Guns tend to move left or right depending upon the recoil associated with them.
In order to counter this recoil effect, simply move the direction of your player in the opposite to your direction in which your weapon’s recoil is going.
If the recoil of your weapon goes in the right direction, the best way to counter is to move the cursor in the left direction. Although it will take a lot of practice and time from you but once you master this, you are going to get good with rifle which lays the foundation for any pro player.
