When you tune in to a Call of Duty League broadcast, one thing that always stands out to casual or less-experienced players is the incredible movement of pro players, and this might be the perfect way to imitate them and improve your game.

Slide canceling has been a popular movement mechanic ever since players first discovered it at the start of the Black Ops 4 season. It literally does what it says on the tin: you slide, then you cancel the slide before it reaches its natural end.

Firstly, though, It doesn’t make much sense to learn the slide cancel and utilize it properly into your game without knowing what exactly it does.

Combined with the tactical sprint, slide canceling will up your movement and gameplay massively.


The benefits of slide canceling in Modern Warfare are numerous. The first and possibly most important one is that it effectively means you can tactical sprint continuously without running out of stamina. This is huge when traversing the map and needing to get to places quickly and efficiently.

Not only that, but it also allows you to ADS (aim down sight) out of sprint much quicker, meaning that you’ve got a better chance of picking up kills when you go round corners or an enemy player jumps out at you unexpectedly.

Here’s how to actually perform the slide cancel in Modern Warfare, and it really only takes two major steps – the rest is up to you:

  • Tactical sprint
  • Press the slide button
  • Press the slide button AGAIN before the slide reaches its natural conclusion
  • Repeat as you traverse the map, especially when turning corners or heading into areas where you might encounter an enemy

As you can see in the video below, created by Seattle Surge’s Bryan ‘Apathy’ Zhelyazkov, slide canceling is almost as natural as just sprinting up the map once you get into the swing of things. He also explains how the slide cancel works.

So that’s how you slide cancel like a pro player in Modern Warfare, with the helpful advice from an actual pro to get you headed in the right direction.

It’s important to remember that this technique isn’t only going to help in competitive matches, though. You can utilize this in public matches, too, to really get ahead of the opposition, and even use it in Warzone to help guide you to victory in Verdansk.

Although at first, it will feel weird, eventually the slide cancel will become second nature, and you’ll wonder how you ever played without it.

How to get .50 GS pistol in Call of Duty Mobile

A new pistol, the .50 GS, is now available in CoD Mobile – and you don’t have to go through a lucky draw for one. No, you can get it for free through a series of challenges. 

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game have flooded it with new content. Be it a new map, a new event, character, perk, or weapon, there has been plenty for fans to get their teeth stuck into.

Sometimes though, in the case of weapons especially, some of this new content is locked behind lucky draws – so you’ve got to pony up some cash if you really want something. 

In the case of the new .50 GS pistol, which is pretty much just the Desert Eagle, the lucky draw isn’t something you need to worry about. Instead, you just need to complete a series of challenges.

The Going Dark theme is new for CoD Mobile Season 12.

CoD Mobile .50 GS handgun Small Arms challenges

There are seven challenges you need to complete come from the Small Arms seasonal event to get the new handgun, each getting slightly more challenging than the last. 

For example, you kick off with needing to get five melee kills, before progressing to normal pistol kills. In the end, you’ll also need 20 headshots with pistols, which isn’t an easy feat for any player, but its not impossible.

The full list of challenges can be found below: 

  1. Kill 5 enemies with Melee Attacks.
  2. Kill 10 enemies with Pistols in MP matches.
  3. Kill 10 Enemies with Quick Fix perk equipped.
  4. Kill 20 Enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any laser.
  5. Kill 20 enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any 3 attachments.
  6. Earn Back Stabber Medal 3 times.
  7. Kill 20 Enemies with Headshots using any Pistol.

However, you shouldn’t get any ideas about completing the challenges in any random order. 

They need to be done in the order they’re set. This is a bit of a pain, but, at least it gives you something to target in each match.
