General question about accuracy.

Hi guys.

Pretty sure I'm going to get trolled big time for asking this, but I was wondering if there are any tips the better players on here can give me regarding improving me accuracy (apart from the obvious don't miss approach of course). My K/d and win/loss are what I consider ok, 1.5 and 1ish. I'm at the point now where I don't really seem to be improving anymore so always looking at other people's stats in the lobbys to compare. What I notice it that my accuracy stats are piss poor compared to a lot of players with similar k/d's and the like. Pretty much all my guns sit around the 17.5% accuracy range, and I regularly bump into players with 23%+ accuracy scores.

You think this is something I can learn with practice, or you think it's a question of genetics and immense hand eye and twitch reflexes?

FYI I split my time pretty evenly between AR's and smg's.

Tips would be welcome

Do the weapon challenges, they help you a lot learning how to use the advantages of each weapon / equipment.

Try other combinations of perks / score streaks.

Always keep experimenting and adjust your weapon / class to the map/gamemode/connection you have.

Sounds easy but its hard work to find the right setup for the right situation!

I try to stick with 1 or 2 guns. That way you get a good feel for how they handle. Another thing is keeping your crosshairs pointed in the general direction of where an enemy could come from. If an enemy appears and you ADS, you should be close to them and not need to adjust your aim much.

Another thing to consider are your tactics. Improving your tactics will improve your game more than your aim. When you play a match against a really good player, go back in theater mode and watch it through their perspective. Watch their file share and recent games to pick up some tips. Hope this helps, and good luck.

Use single shot weapons.  That will force you to place those shots on target.  It transfers over elsewhere after a while

imo anything around 15-20% is good accuracy for a gun you use alot , the only time i'd expect to see higher accuracy is with sniper rifles and maybe shotties.

But good tip use the burst fire weapons in the ar and smg classes, and generally try to burst fire with normal guns, especdially if you're ads'in  accuracy will increase as the longer you hold the fire button for the more the gun is moving about, it might not seem like it but remember over any distance even the tiniest movement of the gun is amplified

The best thing to do for your accuarcy is to lower your sensitivity! With a lower sensitivity you don't jump around as much and you land more shots especially at longer distances.  Also if you want you can buy FPS freeks which are analog extentions for your controller. Basically they make it so you don't have to move your analog stick as much to account for aiming.

Turn down your Look sensitivity a bit if you cant aim. The lower the better aim you will have.

Sorry dont agree. Everyone should play with their sensitivity at the highest level (insane.)

Thats the only way to improve as a player
