With Call of Duty: Vanguard implementing its new Combat Pacing feature, multiplayer matches have been filled with players, ultimately rewarding the run-and-gun playstyle over anything else. Therefore, for snipers, the most crucial element in dealing with these fast-paced opponents is having ultra-fast aiming on time of sight (or ADS). When starting out, zooming in will be excruciatingly slow, but there are a number of ways to reinforce this skill dramatically.
Find out which accessories are best for your ADS
Another new feature added this year is the option to view your weapon’s exact ADS speed stat. This can glow by hovering over any given accessory and pressing the RT or R2 trigger (depending on your platform). Once you pick this up, choose the attachments that render the least ADS time. Keep an eye out for your sniper’s last unlockable barrel though, as this will throttle your ADS by about 9.5 percent.
Vanguard’s Fastest Snipers
Although you can have all the accessories unlocked for your weapon, you can get an even faster time from one of the other two snipers. With the best ADS-compatible accessories on every sniper, we found the Type 99 to be by far the fastest currently, needing only 0.459 of a second to reach full zoom. Behind that, the Kar98k hits .481 of a second, while the maximum ADS speed of the 3-line rifle requires about .514 of a second.
If these previous tips still find you struggling with shooting nearby enemies, the Settings menu offers options that can alter the sensitivity of your scope once zoomed in. For this, head over to the Controller category of the menu and increase the ADS sensitivity multiplier just a bit. . As the default sensitivity is reminiscent of Black Ops Cold War, increasing it can give veteran players a more comforting feeling.
