Call of Duty pros are a good source of new tricks and tips to elevate anyone’s game in Black Ops 4, and Dylan ‘Attach’ Price showed how to best use trade secrets to lock into opponents during a match.

Different iterations in the Call of Duty franchise have had their own set of mechanics that worked best during combat such as jumpshotting, drop shotting and more.

In the latest version of the legendary FPS series, Attach zeroed-in on the best way to get an edge over the competition by breaking down how to properly use Crack Aim and Slice Cancelling together.

Crack down on your aim

In his latest YouTube video, the Black Ops 4 pro took his viewers through the tactics that “literally every professional player, every top player, every aspiring player on the come-up” knows to use.

Crack Aim requires players to spam their ADS instead of holding it down when looking for an opponent. The reason this works better is because crack aiming gives players a better chance of hitting their target over pre-aiming since fights are more sped up than in other shooters.

“Crack aiming is a lot better than pre-aiming,” Attach explained. “Pre-aiming is what you used to do in all other old Call of Duty’s… In this game, [pre-aiming] is not what you’d want to do at all… It feels like [crack aiming] resets your auto aim, and your shots are always on point when you’re crack aiming.”

The CoD pro then took it up a notch by explaining how Slide Cancelling can be put to use to create “the most effective movement in Black Ops 4.”

Slide into firefights

To pull off the mechanic, simply running then slide but aim down the sights to pop up. The aim will cancel out the slide and give the player a slight aim advantage especially when coupling with head glitching.

“[Slide canceling] is even crazier when you do it on a head glitch,” he said. “[When you] crack aim, slide cancel to a head glitch, people don’t even see you. All [opponents] see is the tip of your head, but by that time you already have two or three bullets off on them.”

Players will want to cancel their slides sooner rather than later to get the full effect, but these strats are Attach’s tried and true methods to improving in Black Ops 4.

Black Ops Cold War already set new Call of Duty player record in the Beta

The Call of Duty franchise is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon as Treyarch’s recent Black Ops Cold War Beta went above expectations and shattered records.

Ever since the release of the first CoD title in 2003, the franchise has only continued to grow. Year after year more players hop on board to see what the latest title has in store. Whether fans gravitate towards single-player campaigns, cooperative experiences, or classic multiplayer competition, there’s something for everyone.

2020 is shaping up to be no different as Treyarch is firing on all cylinders for the Black Ops Cold War release. Everything from Zombies to Warzone will be on offer and it’s already clear that the community is hungry for it all.

After an impressive Alpha test on the PlayStation 4 that became the biggest in franchise history, that record has once again been broken. This time, by the Black Ops Cold War Beta that followed just weeks later.

Having kicked off exclusively for PS4 users on October 8 before jumping to all platforms on October 15, the Black Ops Cold War Beta was played by a staggering number of people. In fact, it was “the most downloaded [Beta] in Call of Duty history,” the developers revealed on October 23.

No exact figures were revealed for the history Beta. Though it being publicly available across Xbox One, PS4, and PC over the final days was sure to have helped boost the figures.

Not only is this a hugely positive sign before the launch of Black Ops Cold War, but it continues a trend from previous iterations. 2019’s Modern Warfare also broke records with its early access Beta period. 

Last year’s records also didn’t come with any specific numbers, though Activision assured the Modern Warfare Beta attracted more players than ever before.

Also of note, those players logged more hours played than any Beta in franchise history. It’s now clear that Black Ops Cold War has been yet another step up in terms of early engagement.

It’s obviously too early to tell just how this might indicate sales for the release come November 13. However, to get into the Beta early, a majority of players needed to preorder on their platform of choice. So that’s certainly a good sign just weeks out from launch.

2019’s Modern Warfare topped over $600 million in sales across its first three days on the market. That instantly made it the highest-selling CoD of the generation. Though Black Ops Cold War could be on track to go even further this year.
