As we move into 2021, Call of Duty: Warzone continues to be one of the most popular battle royale titles in the genre.
With regular updates and an extremely passionate community, millions of players are dropping into Verdansk on a regular basis.
The Season One update saw some of the biggest changes to the free-to-play battle royale. It included the introduction of the entire Black Ops Cold War weapon arsenal and the addition of a brand-new map known as Rebirth Island.
There are plenty of ways to navigate Verdansk and Rebirth Island as fast as possible, and one of the most popular ways to traverse the battlefield is by slide cancelling.
In this guide, find out how to master the mechanic.
How To Slide Cancel On PC
For those unfamiliar with slide cancelling, the mechanic enables players to chain together periods of Tactical Sprint, allowing them to sprint at a faster speed than normal.
For PC users, the first thing to do is to rebind Left CTRL to ‘Change Stance/Slide’. This will allow you to hold Left CTRL to go prone rather than hitting C.
With the correct keybinds in place, double tap Left Shift to initiate Tactical Sprint, hold Left CTRL to slide, immediately tap Left CTRL to crouch and you will return to a standing position. To repeat the process, initiate Tactical Sprint and do it again.
If you’re learning to slide cancel efficiently, it’s best to jump into a private match to get familiar with the mechanic before dropping into a game with other players.
How To Slide Cancel On Console
To slide cancel on a PlayStation or Xbox, double tap the left analogue stick to activate Tactical Sprint and hold Circle/B to initiate a slide. As soon as you begin the slide, tap Circle/B again to crouch then press X/A to return to a standing position.
Once you have managed to master slide cancelling, you will notice a big difference in your movement speed. A well-timed slide cancel can often be the difference between evading another player or taking an unwanted trip to the Gulag so be sure to master this mechanic to improve your Warzone performances!
