Modern Warfare and Warzone players look for any technique to get ahead. One of the most helpful things to do is called Slide Cancel, which helps you get around the map quickly and fool your enemies a little. So that you can take advantage of it, here’s everything you need to know about how to slide cancel in Modern Warfare and Warzone.
What slide cancelling is is a technique where you have your character stand up and start sprinting in the middle of a slide. It’s useful because it keeps you moving around the map quickly and makes your movement difficult to track.
With your head bopping up and down, you’re hard to track and slide cancelling essentially gives you unlimited tactical sprint, removing the cool down time that usually occurs after a full slide animation.
How to Slide Cancel in Modern Warfare
What you need to do first is double tap sprint to tactical sprint, which is where you run faster with your gun held in the air with one arm. Then, slide with whatever button you have tied to it (hold circle on PS4, B on Xbox One, C on PC by default).
Then, shortly after your character starts the animation, press slide again to stand up again, which will allow you to double tap sprint to tactical sprint once more. You can then chain these to slide around the map, keeping up your speed. It’s also really helpful when attacking enemies and running away from the gas in Warzone.
You can also make sprint cancel easier to pull off by heading into the Options menu either by pausing during and game or press Options/Menu in the lobby, then changing Slide Input to tap rather than hold under the Controller section. It just makes the quick sequence of inputs easier to pull off.
In short, to slide cancel in Modern Warfare
- Double tap sprint to tactical sprint
- Hold crouch once
