Black Ops Cold War Sliding Changes

Check out Flame's tweet below.

Early feedback on our Alpha has been great! I'm hearing about slide cancelling from the pros. Please know that just after this build was made, we fixed the slide cancelling abuse case that is being discussed. Beta will have appropriate slide cancel penalties, and oh so much more.

For anyone wondering, slide cancelling is essentially a method of increasing your character's ADS speed by sprinting, then initiating a slide before cancelling, all with super quick inputs.

It essentially means you can poke your head around cover a little quicker, and raise your gun faster.

It was particularly infuriating in Modern Warfare, before eventually being patched, but it seems to have found its way into the alpha for Black Ops Cold War.

Thankfully, Flame's tweet suggests it'll be looked into in the very near future, and shouldn't be a problem when the beta launches.
