No matter what weapon you drive in Warzone, it’s important to have a good aim if you want to constantly score big kills and claim victory. Warzone expert JGOD has explained how to drastically improve your goal while playing on the console.
Despite all the talk about the best loadouts or buffs and nerfs, the fact is that it’s almost impossible to win a match at Warzone if the goal is not quite to the bottom.
Warzone players on the console have always felt that they are at a disadvantage compared to PC players in this area. The accuracy of a mouse and keyboard as well as the lack of an FOV slider means that players on Xbox and PlayStation can often feel like they are fighting a losing battle.
Fortunately, Warzone expert JGOD has broken down the simple things that players often mistake when aiming at the console.
Warzone console players are locked to 80 FOV, far less than the 120 available on PC, which means that Xbox and PlayStation users are obviously more zoomed in. This means console fans are exposed to more visual recoil, making shooting in a straight line more of a challenge.
In its video on May 9, JGOD outlined an easy way for console gamers to make their sights more accurate, especially from a long distance. He gave us a detailed explanation of each one and then demonstrated each tip in action.
JGOD explains how to improve goals in Warzone
Many controller players will obviously use the right stick to adjust their goals during combat, as this feels like the most natural way to do things. However, JGOD explained that it is easy to “over-adjust” when aiming in this way, so he recommended use the left stick to aim.
By using the movement stick to shoot while shooting, he felt it was far easier to make micro-adjustments of your target to keep the aiming points locked on the target. This is because movement of the right stick slightly shifts the sight drastically in any direction, while the left stick provides more precise movement.
Meanwhile, he advised players to use the right stick to “find the zero”, a point where the recoil almost disappears as they shoot. This is done by pulls down slightly on the right analog stick while shooting at a fixed position.
By combing these two tips, JGOD explained that players’ goals will hardly move, even in long-distance firefights. In fact, he demonstrated that big moves from the right stick should be used when snapping on a new goal, and then players should go back to finding the zero recoil-sweet spot.
This technique is extremely effective when you include the goal assistant, which controller players benefit from. Strafing to aim offers more rotating aiming assistance anywhere up to 200m, so the assist actually becomes stronger and easier to stay locked to.
So the next time you drop by Caldera or Rebirth Island, be sure to take JGOD’s advice on board. With a little practice and our recommended controller settings, you hit every shot in no time.
