Movement is one of the most important aspects of Call of Duty: Warzone, so here’s a mini-guide on how to increase your running speed in the new battle royale.

Warzone has been all the rage in the Call of Duty community, and since it’s so brand new, players are discovering tricks that improve their gameplay almost on a daily basis.

The latest tips are for movement speed, which is obviously crucial in a game such as this, as it comes into play when you’re trying to run from the gas, get to a certain spot as fast as possible, or escape from enemies trying to chase you.

Infinity WardThere are ways to increase your movement and running speeds in Call of Duty: Warzone.

Turns out that there are certain steps you can take to help you run faster than others, some more obvious but others lesser-known. Below, we’ve listed three tips and tricks that will help you move quicker in Warzone.

1. Equip a lighter weapon

It’s become quite clear that the speed at which you run in Warzone is heavily influenced by the weapon you have in your hands. With lighter guns, you will naturally move more nimbly, and thus get to where you’re going in less time.

So, if you have a light weapon like a pistol or SMG in your inventory, make sure you have that equipped when sprinting, instead of a heavier gun such as a sniper rifle or LMG. An in-depth look at how much each weapon type slows you down can be found in the video below, courtesy of YouTuber TheXclusiveAce.

2. Use Double Time

Double Time is a Perk 1 that really offers three distinct movement boosts. The first is that it doubles the duration of Tactical Sprint, which is that extra gear you can briefly go into while running that increases your speed by 1.5x. The regular duration of this is four seconds, which means Double Time bumps it up to eight seconds, a considerable difference.

The second boost is .it lowers the cooldown for Tactical Sprint, which means you can recover faster after one spell ends and get back to running fast sooner.

The third, and perhaps the least talked-about advantage, is that it increases crouch movement speed by 30%. When you crouch walk, your footsteps make no noise, so being able to do that 30% faster is actually pretty significant.

3. ADS Slide Cancel

Slide-cancelling is a trick that a lot of pro players have been using in competitive multiplayer matches, and there’s a variation of it that can increase your movement speed in Warzone.

The idea here is that you use your Tactical Sprint until it runs out, at which point you go into a slide, and right at the start of the animation, you briefly aim down sights with your weapon.

What this does is that it allows you to maintain the fastest sprint speed without losing it, and the point of the ADS at the start of each slide is to cancel out that slight delay you get when you exit the slide before you can run again.

TheXclusiveAce tested this out in-game and determined that this technique actually allows you to get from point A to B approximately 6.6% faster than if you just tried running without any tricks.

A visual demonstration of this can be found in one of his recent videos, which we’ve included below:

Black Ops Cold War players demand change to controversial camo challenge

Call of Duty players are calling on Treyarch to revamp one of the camo challenges in Black Ops Cold War, Policia, because it relies too heavily on their opponents’ actions.

Anyone who plays Call of Duty should be familiar with camo challenges – weapon skins that are unlocked as players complete certain tasks. These normally range from scoring a certain amount of headshots, picking up double kills, or just simply fragging out.

However, while the community generally loves completing these challenges, there is one in Black Ops Cold War that players are demanding get changed: the science category.

These skins require players to get kills on enemies who are “taking cover from you in multiplayer”; the final unlock in the category, Policia, requires fifty of these kills.

Shooting enemies behind cover is a major drag for some players.

Given the fact that you need your opponents to behave in the exact way you need them to and get behind cover as you kill them, completing this challenge can be a massive chore. So much so that players are calling for Treyarch to change it.

“I know it has literally never happened, at least to my knowledge, but can you PLEASE make this a different camo challenge?” Redditor Dementor8919 asked. “I hate camos where you quite literally have to depend on other people to do said thing. Please man I’m begging you.”

Others agreed and remarked how previous Black Ops games had better challenges.

“Remember the good old days where you had to get hip fire kills?” one user reminisced. “At least there ain’t a camo challenge where you have to get 100 kills whilst being prone, just imagine the camping.”

“Yes please change this! Whoever decided to make this challenge should actually try doing this…it is a pain. Why would they make a challenge where you have no control over it?” another chimed in.

Will Treyarch change up the camo requirements?

The original post itself ended up getting a lot of traction with over 4,000 up-votes on the site and even earned Reddit awards from users who would also like the camo’s requirements to be tweaked.

So far Treyarch has yet to respond to the post or make any mention of plans to change it, but hopefully, they end up figuring out a method of making the camos more appealing for BOCW players to try and unlock.
