Mobility is the name of the game in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3, and any move that can break your opponent’s aim assist is your best bet at winning a firefight whether 1v1 or even 1v2. This Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 movement guide will describe how to aim while sliding.
Tactical Pads: Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Boots
These boots are the only footwear that grant you the ability to fully aim down the sights while sliding when equipped.
Additionally, the Tactical Pads will increase the slide distance, making all the difference in combat situations whether you’re closing the distance on an enemy, or sprinting towards cover under fire.
The increased stance transition speed as well as movement speed while crouched, makes equipping the Tactical Pads ideal for performing several other advanced player moves such as slide canceling, drop shots, and snaking.
Most importantly of all, your weapon will not be in the canted position (off to the side) after sliding and aiming down the sight. This elimination of the brief delay in having your weapon fully at the ready can make all the difference in a firefight as well.
COD MW3 Best Boots: Covert Sneakers versus Tactical Pads
While most players will favor the Covert Sneakers for silent footsteps, the Tactical Pads are the choice of advanced players in Modern Warfare 3, for the massive improvement to mobility and maneuverability it affords.
Check out our other Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 movement guide on how to slide cancel, which you can then combine with this ability for an advanced maneuver that can get the drop on anyone that’s around a corner attempting to ambush you.
