There are many different terms when it comes to different aspects of Call of Duty games. We have terms like “campers”, “noob tube” or “obj” to name a few. With so many names in the proverbial dictionary, it’s hard to remember them all unless you’re an avid gamer. One of those terms you’ll see quite often in Call of Duty games is ADS, but what does it mean?
What is ADS in Call of Duty?
ADS stands for “Aim Down Sights”. It’s a common term used in many shooters that allow this feature. Both first-person and third-person shooters have this. This feature is actually quite important in these games because there is a big difference between using it and not.
When aiming down sights, your character will zoom into a location you’re aiming for and fire a gun with more accuracy. This is useful when engaging in mid to long range combat, although it’s significantly less useful if you’re using close range weapons.
Often the types of firearms you do ADS with are almost anything other than shotguns and akimbo weapons like pistols in Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2. It’s much harder to land a headshot if you’re not aiming your gun precisely, so keep that in mind with the super-fast TTK (time to kill) in games like this.
It’s not ideal to shoot without aiming, otherwise your gun’s bullet will go everywhere. Not only will you waste a bunch of ammo spraying a gun without aiming, but you’ll also leak your location and likely get killed in a match. K/D (kill-death ratio) is important to manyand learning when to use ADS versus hip-fire can go a long way in making you a better player.
Warzone 2 call of duty is now available for free on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC.
