10 Ways to Improve at the Shooting Range
30 Jul 10 Ways To Improve At The Shooting Range

by Dev Team
What’s the number one reason you’d want to attend your local indoor shooting range in Seattle? The answer might vary slightly from person to person, but for most, the most pivotal reason for heading to the range is to become more comfortable with firearms and improving their shooting skills. It can be a long road — becoming a better shooter — but thankfully, there are some easy-to-remember tips that will put you on the right track fast. Today, we’ll be sharing ten of them with you. Be sure to take these to heart, and put them into practice next time you go to spend some lead.
1) Get Familiar With Your Own Guns
We know it’s fun to go to the range and try out new guns from time to time, in fact, the range is the perfect place to test out a firearm you may be interested in and introduce yourself to a few guns you’re not yet familiar with. If you want to be a better shot, however, you’ll have to start learning the ins and outs of one or two firearms in great detail. This means investing in your own personal weapon, then spending time mastering its controls until they become second nature. You’ll also want to start bringing your own safety gear along, including eye and ear protection.
2) Focus on Accuracy
It’s not just enough to hit the target, you’ll find. To improve your skills, you’ll want to start focusing on hitting the target consistently and within certain accuracy margins to up your game. Before sending that target too far down range, try keeping it close and seeing if you can keep your shots to within a couple of inches of one another. This is harder to do than it sounds, and once you have it perfected, you can start sending your targets further out to see if you can replicate the feat. In time, you’ll find that your ability to group shots will have improved, along with your overall accuracy.
3) Practice Your Trigger Pull
You might not realize it yet, but how you choose to pull the trigger can have a great impact on your ability to shoot straight. You’ll want to read up, understand, and absorb the best techniques for pulling the trigger until you can execute them without thinking about it. By and large, you’ll want to pull the trigger firmly and avoid flinching or jerking your firearm as you do. Quick movements of the wrist like that will throw of your aim, leading to decreased accuracy.
4) Pay Attention to Your Stance
Just like your trigger pull, the way you stand while shooting can have an affect on your ability to hit the target. While you’re at the range, work on adopting the proper beginner shooting stance, which requires you to have your feet about shoulder width apart, and, for right hand shooters, the left foot slightly forward and the right foot slightly backwards. There are, of course other situational stances to learn, but for the range, this basic stance is the one you should practice most as a new shooter.
5) Try Some Humility on for Size
Thinking that you’ve already got it all down pat is a quick way to make errors and overestimate your shooting ability. A better attitude to adopt, one that will improve your skills faster, is acknowledging that there’s plenty to learn and being receptive to advice dispensed by your instructors and more experienced shooters. There’s a reason they’re well respected. Take their advice to heart and implement that advice, then watch your skills improve.
6) Slow Down and Do It Right
Much like trying to learn to play a part on a musical instrument, rushing through your shooting drills will leave you with a limited understanding of what you’re supposed to do. It’s not a race against the other guys and gals at the range, so slow down, then concentrate on details like your stance, trigger pull, and accuracy margins. This way, you can be sure you’re doing things right and committing your skills to memory.
7) Try Some Dry Fire Practice
Before you head to the range and use up a bunch of ammo, make sure your mechanics are sound with some dry fire practice. Like the name suggests, you’ll need to ensure your firearm is empty before you attempt any dry fire practice. You might even consider setting up a dummy target so you have somewhere to focus your aim. Since you have no recoil or noise to contend with, the only thing you need worry about here are the basics — your stance, how you’re pulling the trigger, etc.
8) Do It Again
Practice, as they say, makes perfect. If you want to get better at shooting, you’ll need to do all of the above, and then do it again, and again, and again. As you continue shooting, you may not notice improvements straight away, but over time, the little things will start to add up, and your abilities will steadily increase.
9) Switch It Up
As an addendum to the above advice, you’ll want to work on your drills repeatedly to get better, but you don’t want your training to get boring either, so be sure to cycle your exercises from time to time so that your shooting practice feels fresh. This way, you can help maintain a healthy interest and stay out of a rut. You can also vary things within your training sessions, breaking your time at the range into different segments where you practice different techniques.
10) Know When to Quit
As Kenny Rogers once said, you’ve got to “know when to fold ‘em,” which, in this case, means you should realize when you’re getting diminishing returns on a session and pack it up for the day. As with any activity, there’s such a thing as overtraining when it comes to shooting, and doing so will only embed your errors. So if you’ve done all you can do for one session, call it a day, rest up, and return again another day with renewed vigor.
Bottom line, if you want to get better at shooting, you’ll need to head to the range consistently to improve your skills. Vary your sessions to keep things interesting (extras like the interactive shooting simulator in Seattle are a good way for doing this), and remember to start slow so you can develop good habits and avoid and unlearn bad ones. Good luck, and see you at the range!
How Long Does It TakeTo Get Decent at Shooting Firearms?
If you have recently purchased a firearm, you are probably excited to get out there and become familiar with how it shoots. Learning to shoot your new firearm requires confidence and plenty of patience. As with any sport or profession, the longer you practice and the more experience you have, the better you’ll become. It isn’t enough to just be decent, strive for proficiency!
Although it is difficult to put a timeline on it, these tips will help improve your shooting with a handgun. We recommend practicing with Snap Caps or Dummy Rounds before live ammo fire.
Once you’ve become familiar with the functions of your firearm, it’s time to work on proper stance, grip, sight alignment, and trigger control.
- Start by bringing your non-shooting side foot forward 8-10 inches with toes pointed at your target. Next, move the shooting side toes out to a 45-degree angle. Slightly bend at the knees and straighten your back. This is known as the Weaver Stance.
- For a proper grip, pick up your firearm with the dominant hand. Place the “V” of your thumb and index finger up as high and tight to the back of the pistol as possible, leaving less space for recoil. Be sure your fingers and skin are clear of the slide.
- Place your index finger along the slide and wrap the rest of your fingers around the grip. Now wrap your support hand around the grip with thumbs touching, palm covering the side of the grip and fingers laid over the strong hand.
- Rule of thumb for sight alignment is equal height, equal light. When you look through your sights, make sure the front and rear sights are at equal height. Once you have the height equal, find equal light (the space between the two sights) from right to left of your front and rear sight. This is known as a sight picture.
- And lastly, we get to take that trigger finger off the home position on the slide and practice trigger control. Regulate your breathing and focus on your front sight. With your finger on the trigger and target in sight, slowly pull backward, the break should be a surprise release. Follow through with your shot, don’t move your head or release the trigger until you see the shot placement.
Dry-fire practice isn’t always fun, but it is cheap! First, make sure there is absolutely no ammunition in or around the firearm and area you are practicing. Put a target on the wall or pick a point of aim. Follow the proper stance, grip, sight alignment, and proper triggering control recommendations. Repeat, repeat, repeat!
If you prefer live fire training, change up your drill routine by asking a friend to load your magazine and have them place a dummy round in there. This will show you if you’re flinching or anticipating recoil when you pull the trigger. Return to dry-fire drills until your comfortable with trigger control again.
In the end, the more practice you have and the time you dedicate to advancing your training, the better you will become. Practice different distances to improve depth perception, such as 25 yards and then 50 yards. Becoming a proficient pistol shooter requires a lot of repetition and a lot of practice.

How to Practice at the Gun Range
If you own a firearm, especially if you carry one at home or in public, responsibility requires that you train and practice with it on a regular basis. The alternative?…
Imagine that you’re suddenly called upon to give a public piano concert. If you’ve never been trained to play the piano well and never practiced a complex concerto over and over and over—or even if you’ve practiced sporadically—how well do you expect that would go? The answer is: you would flop. If your public concert is with your pistol, your lack-of-practice failure could mean that you or innocent bystanders get hurt. The human toll aside, that will get very expensive for you in both a financial and legal sense.

Gun handling and marksmanship are perishable skills with a short shelf life. Everything about gun handling and marksmanship comes from fundamentals and you can never stop working on those fundamentals without losing skill. So you should have a training and practice regimen that at least allows you to maintain what you have and, at best, allows you to build a stronger foundation and more skill.
Many responsible gun owners want to practice, but simply don’t know how. And not all of us have access to a range where all sorts of dynamic training are possible. We may be relegated to the strict confines of an indoor range. Even with that constraint, there is plenty you can do toward effective training and practice.
How to Practice
Before you start devising a practice program for yourself, get training from qualified instructors. I don’t mean take a course. I mean take many courses; get instruction on a regular basis. There is no substitute for quality training, especially if you are not already an expert gun handler and marksman.
I recommend that you take at least one training course every 3 months. Monthly instruction would be even better. Not every class needs to be a weekend-long or day-long intensive course. There is great value in 1- and 2-hour classes when taught by good instructors. And no, it does not matter if a course is “below your level of skill.” While you should take on courses of increasing difficulty over time, instruction is valuable no matter the difficulty level of the course. Just do it. Keep doing it.
Having established an instruction-based regimen, here are some advisable tips for effective, efficient, ongoing self practice:
Go to the range with a specific plan that includes no more than 2 things to work on.
Having only one objective is even better. Your objective should be simple and granular. “I’ll work to be more accurate” is neither simple nor granular. That’s not a practice objective. Some good, candidate, practice-day objectives might include:
- I’ll concentrate on maintaining proper grip, with an eye toward muzzle/recoil control
- I’ll work to more quickly acquire a proper sight picture as I press out
- I’ll work to more quickly reacquire a good sight picture after each shot
- I’ll work on acquiring and maintaining focus on my front sight
- I’ll work on maintaining proper posture or upper-body and arm position
- I’ll work on maintaining a good sight picture while transitioning between two targets
- I’ll work in pressing my trigger straight back without moving my sight picture
- I’ll work on speed-reload-to-sight-picture technique
- I’ll work on maintaining a good cheek weld while cycling the bolt in my rifle
- I’ll work on prepping the trigger as I press out and breaking when I have a good sight picture
- I’ll work on clearing (some specific) malfunction(s)
And so on. If you have access to a practical outdoor range, the list of techniques and drills you can work expands greatly. Take advantage of that if you can. If you properly work just one or, at most, two fundamentals in a training session, you should see gains. If you try and do too much in a single session, you’ve most likely wasted your time. In practice, concentration is better than dilution.
Concentrate on the details of your drill and make a point to periodically evaluate and re-evaluate your effort.
Practice makes permanent, so don’t take too many reps before critically evaluating your results and ability to maintain focus…or whatever is required of you in your particular drill. Regularly assess your ability to meet the standard you’re aiming for, adjust as necessary, resume, repeat.
Take only one firearm.
Taking more than one firearm to the range is conducive to shooting rather than practice. So take one gun only. If you carry concealed or openly, your training weapon should almost always be your carry weapon.
Prepare targets specific to your planned drill(s) or be able to create them at the range.
Regardless of the fundamental component you’re working on, you’ll want to see the results of your work on your target. Unless you have the ability to make one coin-sized, ragged hole in your practice target with your drills, you need multiple targets to work with. A shot-riddled target makes it impossible to tell success from failure. Therefore, it is usually best to have an array of similar targets on your paper so that you can perform a drill or a sequence on one of them, then for your next attempt use a new target, and so on.
Above: Here’s a “dot torture” target, useful for all sorts of fundamental drills.
You might select a target sheet that has multiple targets of the appropriate size and dimensions or you can simply turn a large target over and draw what you need on the plain back of the paper with a marker. However you decide to do it, use targets that allow you to see the results of each specific shot-sequence effort.
Run the gun, not the drill.
This is a hard one to consistently get right, but even though you’re concentrating on a specific drill for a specific shooting fundamental, don’t get lost in the drill. When something unplanned happens (you unexpectedly run empty, your experience a malfunction, etc…) immediately focus on quickly and efficiently getting your gun “back in the fight” (back in working order, ready to fire). If you’re running a 5-shot drill, but somehow only 4 rounds happen to be in the mag—or if you accidentally put 6 in the magazine—don’t pause or stop and confusedly fiddle around with things or look at your gun like it messed up. Just run the gun and continue: perform a speed reload to get that last shot – or – notice that your slide is still in battery and shoot one more time to finish the magazine (if that’s what you’re supposed to do).
This sort of flow with your weapon is something that takes a while and many unexpected events for you to get the hang of. Commit to running the gun and you’ll be on your way toward developing realistic, lifesaving habits, no matter what drills you work.
Ammo is expensive. If you’re going to buy ammo and spend it shooting holes in paper or ringing steel, you should probably make most of those rounds count toward your increased skill. Otherwise you’re throwing money down the toilet in exchange for creating the chore of having to clean your gun again.
There are no advanced shooting techniques. There are only different kinds of and different components of fundamentals. Get into the habit of practicing fundamentals every time you go to the range. And do this often. If you want to evaluate your progress, start competing in GSSF or IDPA or USPSA matches. They’re fun and they reveal the truth about your training and practice (maybe more on this exciting aspect of shooting in a future article).

3 Ways To Practice Shooting On A budget – Stratus Defense
3 Ways To Practice Shooting On A budget
Most entry-level students I train will pass the basic shooting qualification courses for their category of work and they tend to dedicate time and effort in the near future to practice at their local shooting range. What I’ve noticed over a longer period of time is that the effort diminishes and so does the skill level. It is unfortunate that every now and then I’ll have an entry-level student pass their initial qualification but when it is time to requalify a year later to maintain their certification, they’ll fail and do worse than they did as a new shooter in some cases.
At the end of the day, you are responsible for yourself and the liabilities you carry around especially when carrying a firearm for work as someone who is charged with protecting life and property. On the other side of that coin, I can surely relate to the financial burden of regular firearms practice. But we can minimize that and here’s how.
1) Dry fire
It costs ZERO dollars to do dry fire practice at home. And dry fire practice allows you to practice those two critical fundamentals of marksmanship; trigger control and sight alignment. Practice smooth trigger pulls and feel the trigger reset. Do it so much that you instinctively know when that trigger resets and what it feels like. Test how smooth your trigger press is by placing a dime or empty casing at the end of your slide above the muzzle while you squeeze the trigger to test your ability to stay flat while pressing the trigger.
2) Stop buying and renting equipment at the range
As much as I like to support my local gun range, ranges are notorious for inflating prices on range supplies. You’ll go a range expecting to spend $20 for an hour of range access and by the time you rent eye and ear protection, buy ammunition, and buy targets, you’ve dropped $75, maybe $100.
Order ammunition online. AmmoSeek is a great website to source and price out ammunition from suppliers on the internet. Purchase ammunition by 1,000 round cases if you can as this will save you tremendously in the long run. If you live in a state that doesn’t allow ammunition shipments, the next best option will be local sporting goods stores like Dick’s or find out when the next gun show is near you. Gun shows are great for buying ammunition, especially in bulk. But bulk purchases are key in order to save money. During my last trip to my local range, I noticed they were selling 50 round boxes of 9mm ammunition for about $16+tax. 1,000 rounds would cost $320+tax at that price. I can source a 1,000-round case of quality 9mm ammunition on AmmoSeek for about $160 in today’s market, which averages to about $8 for a 50 round box that goes for $16 at the range.
Stop buying targets and renting eye and ear protection at the range. You don’t need big $3/4 shooting targets for range practice. You can make your own using cheap paper plates, a sharpie and a bullseye sticker. Check out our Amazon List “Shooting Gear.”
3) Bring a friend
Bring a friend to the range who you can learn from and who can watch you and identify problems you may not notice about yourself such as flinching or improper grip. Going to the range and just shooting rounds is not practice. Identifying problems and working those problems out one by one will make you a more accurate and faster shooter. Also, bringing a friend and sharing a lane allows you to split the range time fees so you save money.
21 Easy Ways to Improve Your Basketball Shooting Percentage
Tip #1 – Locate Your Target (the Rim) Earlier
Getting in the habit of locating your target (the rim) earlier will improve your shooting percentage. Why?
Locating the rim just a split second earlier gives your brain more time to subconsciously calculate distance and focus on your objective. Your eyes should be on the rim as early as possible. To make this little trick work, you need to develop this habit in practice, which carries over into games.
Tip #2 – Always Hold Your Follow Through
You’ve probably heard this a hundred times but there’s good reason for it. Holding your follow through solves a multitude of shooting problems. This simple movement helps you maintain good basketball shooting technique without even thinking about it.
Tip #3 – Finish with a Relaxed Wrist
A common mistake is for players to follow-through with a tense wrist. Your wrist should be as relaxed as possible. Your hand should finish on line and even bounce a little during the follow-through.
Tip #4 – Use a Colored Ball to Improve Rotation
To improve the straightness of your shot, try a colored basketball during practice. This makes it easy to see the rotation and direction of the ball. The immediate feedback makes it quick and easy for you to adjust and improve your shot.
Tip #5 – Don’t Shoot like Kobe (By Hanging In The Air)
TOO many kids try to copy Kobe and end up with bad shots for the REST OF THEIR LIVES!
Youngsters have no business trying to hang like Kobe and shoot. Kobe is a freak of nature! You should shoot as you’re going up (at least 1 inch before you reach the top of your jump). Trying to mimic Kobe’s shot will just earn you a place on the bench and lots of frustration.
Tip #6 – Stop Thinking about Your Shot During Games
One of the worst things you can do is think about your shooting mechanics during a game.
Thinking about your shot is for practice, NOT for games! In fact, you should only think during certain parts of your practice. It’s ok to think during a form shooting session or when learning a new skill, but once you start developing rhythm and get further into practice, don’t think!
During games, train yourself to think about other things or nothing at all.
You’re going to miss a few. So what! Don’t think, just shoot the damn ball!!!
If you adopt this mentality, your shooting percentage will go UP.
Tip # 7 – Eliminate Negative Thoughts with this Simple Trick
Eliminating negative thoughts can dramatically improve your basketball shooting percentage.
To stop thinking and eliminate bad thoughts, you can try this little trick…
Before each game, practice, and shooting session, tell yourself that you don’t care if you make any baskets. Say it out loud or in your head several times.
THEN, when you go to shoot (right as you’re catching the ball), say something to yourself like, “Nice shot. I can do better.” In other words, try not to care if it goes in or not.
This simple little trick helps you to relax into the process and not think about the result. Using this technique will be enough to break you out of mini slumps and restore your confidence.
Tip #8 – Develop Optimal Arc
DID YOU KNOW that a shot with a flat 35 degree arc only has .6 inches of margin for the ball to clear without hitting the rim? The shot has to be almost perfect to get a swish.
BUT a shot with a 45 degree medium height arc has a 3 inch margin of error!
That’s right. Just by increasing the arc of your shot, your margin of error could increase as much as 500%!
How many shots bounce OUT of the basket because you missed by just a fraction?
As a general rule of thumb, finish your follow through with the rim clearly visible beneath the fingers of your shooting hand. That way you will ensure that you have a decent arc on the shot. Shots with proper arch have a much better chance of going in.
Just don’t go too high. Because if your arc gets too high, you’ll loose your distance control.
Tip #9 – Watch DVDs
Simply by watching great shooters groove their shots over and over, you can improve your confidence and form.
The good habits and examples can be contagious. As you watch, the good form becomes ingrained in your mind.
Not to mention, you should never stop learning. There are lots of good shooting DVDs and books for you to learn from.
Tip #10 – Use a Partner to Tune your Shot Alignment
Spend a little time during each practice lined up along a court line about 20 feet from a partner, shooting back and forth and trying to have the ball bounce as close to the line as possible. This simple practice technique will help you to fine tune your control of the precision of your shot.
Tip #11 – Land In Front
Balance is a very important aspect of shooting. You achieve balance primarily through a proper stance and footwork.
After your shot, you should land in front of where you started. You can do this by making sure that your momentum is going towards the basket on every catch. You should also establish good balance from your stance.
Tip #12 – Film Your Shot
You’d be amazed at how filming your shot in both games and practices can help you.
The most common response from players is… “That’s how I shoot!!??”
That’s right. Most players haven’t seen their own shot before. Seeing your shot on film can help you to detect poor mechanics and motivate you to make commitments for improvement. Bottom line– it’s a great way to refine your shot.
Tip #13 – Get a Partner
When possible, try to shoot with a partner. Because when you’re alone, you end up chasing the rebound before following through properly.
This is important. Think about how you practice…
You shoot and then you start following the shot immediately so you can get lots of reps. Guess what? This can mess up your follow-through. You need to FINISH each shot and hold your follow-through. That’s why we recommend getting a partner to rebound for you. Now just because you can’t find a partner you can (and should) still practice by yourself. Just be aware of holding your follow through.
Tip #14 – Fix Bad Habits by Immediately Correcting Your Shot
This is one of the easiest ways to break bad shooting habits. For example, let’s say you forgot to hold your follow-through. Well, immediately after you shoot, raise your hand back up and put your hand in the correct follow-through position. This simple technique will help you quickly correct the bad habit
Tip #15 – Use a Return Device
Using basketball rebounding and return devices can literally double the number of shots you can take in practice. Just think how much time you spend chasing the ball when you practice. A return device solves that problem and lets you take more shots in less time.
Tip #16 – Get To Set
When you catch the ball, you should get the ball to your set position as quickly as possible. This will speed up your shot. Your set point can be anywhere between your hip and your shoulder.
Tip #17 – Don’t Fall for Gimmicks
Too many players spend their hard earned money on shooting gloves and gimmicks, thinking this will make them great shooters.
You can’t use these devices during a game so it really doesn’t do you much good. You need to learn how to shoot effectively without these devices. There is NO magic pill.
Tip # 18 – Keep Your Shot Motion Balanced, Fluid, and Consistent
A fluid motion means that there are no jerky movements or stopping points, just one constant flow from start to finish.
Consistency can’t be stressed enough. Your feet, arms, set point, and jump height should use a consistent motion every time you shoot. All the greatest shooters in the world have amazingly consistent movements.
Tip #19 – Groove 50 Shots Before Every Game
Before every practice and game, face the basket and shoot 50 EASY shots about four to ten feet from the basket.
Not only does this improve your shooting form, but it helps to develop phenomenal confidence.
You’ll quickly become very good at grooving these shots over and over. You’ll see the ball going in the basket over and over. You’ll swish the ball repeatedly and probably shoot 60%, 70%, 80%, or more, which is great for your psyche.
Why do you think that NBA players do this before games? Why do you think that Tiger Woods starts all of his practice sessions by making 100 three-foot putts?
Because it works! Don’t overlook this powerful strategy.
Tip #20 – Quickly Chart Your Shot to Determine Tendencies
Head to the gym and shoot a bare minimum of 50 shots. Ask your partner to chart your shots. The KEY is to chart the detailed results of each shot. You will track how many shots fell short, too long, to the left, and to the right. This information will help you to determine what you need to work on.
For example, if you consistently miss short (like many players do), you’ll need to work on your power and distance control. If you consistently miss to the right and the left, you need to fix the mechanics of your foot and/or arm alignment.
Tip #21 – Work Game-Like Movement into Your Practice
To make game shots, you need to practice game shots. You should use good shooting drills and practice movement off screens, cuts, chairs, and pivoting in both directions.

7 to improve your skills
Apex Legends feels like a much faster battle royale experience. In fact, it’s possible to argue that the game has more in common with your typical hero shooter than it does other battle royale games like Fortnite or PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. And with that in mind, it can be hard for some new players to adjust to its pace, especially while trying to aim in frantic shootouts.
Therefore, we decided to spend some time in the training mode in King’s Canyon in order to bring you some tips on how to improve your aim in game. The following will cover everything you need to know from mouse sensitivity (for those playing on PC), to learning how to compensate for recoil while aiming. Hopefully, by the end of this guide, you’ll be racking up wins like a pro and bringing in that glorious XP.
1. Use training mode to practise snapping & strafing
Strafing will help you hone in your aim
First things first, before entering any match lobby, you’ll want to spend some time in the training mode, familiarising yourself with each weapon and practicing your aim. There are a few good drills that you can do in the training mode to accomplish this. The first of these is snapping.
Training mode has a bunch of moving targets, as well as those that reward players with better damage for perfectly positioned shots. You’ll want to spend some time snapping between these while aiming. This means entering your aiming stance, firing at a target, and exiting quickly, before shifting to the next target, and so on. Practising this will help you to swiftly switch between targets, which is vital for staying alive when you encounter multiple enemy squads in a match or in close quarters when aiming down your sights is discouraged.
Also, another exercise that you can get up to here is practising your aiming while strafing out of cover. Place yourself in front of an obstacle and move yourself side to side, while trying to hit a target that’s positioned in the distance. This will help you to hone your aim and eliminate those moments in game where you end up firing prematurely at a wall when you want to hit an enemy.
2. Finding the perfect mouse sensitivity
Having the right mouse sensitivity can make a massive difference
This next tip is a little bit trickier to act on and will depend entirely on personal preference and your own set up. The game allows you to change both your mouse sensitivity and your sensitivity while aiming down sights. Though you may be inclined to copy your favourite streamer’s settings, it’s much more helpful to tailor this to your own playstyle. A good way to address this is, again, with training. Here you’ll be able to refine your settings over time. However, a good piece of advice is to keep your mouse sensitivity as low as comfortable, to reduce inconsistency and give you greater control over your movement.
3. Compensating for recoil
Another key aspect that will affect how well you aim is how you compensate for weapon recoil while aiming. In training mode, you have access to all the weapons in the game, so it is worth testing them out against the sandstone walls behind the targets to learn their recoil pattern and where you’ll need to compensate.
For instance, the R-99 fires upwards in a relatively straight line, while the Re-45 rises upwards and slightly to the right. Once you’ve learned these patterns you will then be able to use either the analogue stick or your mouse to draw back slightly and keep the crosshairs in roughly the same place. A good way to know if you’re starting to master this is by reducing the size of the bullet impressions you leave on the wall. Another way is to stand in the distance and aim at a faraway target while trying to control your aim. While you’re doing this, try to hit as many of your shots as possible.
4. Practise shooting while sliding down hills
Try and practice shooting while sliding down hills
The entrance to the training mode may just seem like a cool way to introduce you to the concept of sliding in Apex Legends, but it can also serve an additional purpose. Often in the game, you’ll be shot at while travelling down the side of a steep cliff. But stopping to aim will bring you to a total standstill, giving the opponent the edge.
In these circumstances, what you will have to do is fire without aiming down your sight. Luckily, though, you can practise this in the training mode by sliding down the side of the hill and picking out different rows of targets to fire towards. If a worst-case scenario does then happen in a match, at least you’ll have some experience with this.
5. Training mode isn’t everything
It’s worth mentioning though that, in spite of all of its positives, training mode isn’t everything and will only teach you so much. For one, you can’t practise with any of the attachments at present, and the hitboxes you’ll aiming for are different to that of the legends in-game.
The only real solution for this is to balance training with real match experience. This way you’ll be able to learn the actual hitboxes of individual characters and practise with attachments like stocks, which reduce aim drift on certain weapons, and chokes that tighten the spread of heavy weapons like the Peacekeeper.
6. Placing your crosshair efficiently
One extremely important aspect of aiming in Apex Legends is crosshair placement. When running around the map, you’ll want to try and keep your crosshair at roughly head or neck height. Doing this will mean that you’ll have to readjust your aim less, whenever you encounter an enemy, in order to land that devastating headshot. So it’s well worth keeping this in mind while sprinting from one location to the next.
7. Drop into hot zones for experience
One way to quickly gain experience with aiming is by dropping into hot zones, such as high-tier loot areas. Should you find a weapon in time, you’ll then be able to get in plenty of shooting practice at the beginning of a match, allowing you to cut out all of the waiting around.
There is a bit of a problem with this approach, though, which is that you can often end up encountering players before you even find a weapon. A good way of avoiding this is communicating with your teammates. Keep pinging weapons as fast as you can to ensure you can find them before an enemy finds you.
Accurate Pistol Shooting For the Novice
Accurate pistol shooting can be hard for anyone, and it takes a lot of work and practice to become good. However, there are a couple of tips and tricks you can use to jump-start your success at shooting. While nothing can beat “practice, practice, practice,” fixing your form and nailing down the basics can really help you. Here are 6 ways you can have accurate pistol shooting next time you hit the range.
- Diagnosing your problem
- Find your stance
- Fix your grip
- Keep your eyes on the sights
- Trigger pull
Diagnosing your problem
Accurate pistol shooting doesn’t have to be hard! However, it can be frustrating for new gun owners. Small grip issues or flinching while firing can cause you to be wildly inaccurate. Even the way that you position your feet can make a big difference when it comes to accurate pistol shooting. Here is a video by the NSSF (National Shooting Sports Foundation) to break down some common causes of pistol shooting that you may experience. Down below you’ll find some helpful tips on how to solve these problems and more.
Find your stance
When it comes to firing a pistol, shotgun, rifle, or bazooka, your stance matters a ton. Without the proper solid base to start with your body cannot absorb the force of the recoil. Furthermore, without the proper stance, you’ll be less accurate and more prone to flinching when firing. There are two main types of shooting stances, however, more are becoming popular. These are Isosceles and Weaver.
The Isosceles is about squaring up to your opponent with outstretched arms and bended knees. It will give you side-to-side balance but may make recoil not as easy to maintain. You form an isosceles triangle with the points of your shoulders connected by the single point of your gun.
The Weaver method causes you to effectively control recoil and sure up your shooting side by blading the body. You place one foot behind your dominant side and shoot at an angle.
For a more visual example check out this guide as well:
Fix your grip
Your grip is also very important when it comes to accurate pistol shooting. Without a forceful grip, you can’t control the recoil as easily. Additionally, this also causes your trigger pull to be off as well. For the best results when shooting, you want to grip your pistol as high and as firm as you can. Don’t block the slide with your shooting hand, but place it directly underneath. Grip as firm as possible while placing your other hand on the side of the gun as high you can. If your hand starts to tremor, then you are gripping too hard. Make sure your grip is secure, and that your arm is in line with the direction of the barrel.
For a more visual aid check out this example by a former navy seal:
Keep your eyes on the sights
One of the most common mistakes that will lead you not to be accurate is focusing on the target instead of your sights. Before buying any accessories to help with aiming, make sure you are focused on your sights when looking at a target. Staring at the target instead won’t give you an accurate view of what you are pointing your gun at. If you only look at your target you will always be off your mark.
Basic trigger pull can take a long time to learn because it is different for every gun. Trigger pull is defined as “ the pressure applied to a trigger to fire a firearm” by Merriam-Webster. Being too forceful with your trigger pull can result in you moving the gun as you fire causing your aim to be off. To counteract this, start slowly pulling your trigger when you want to take a shot. Don’t try to time your shot, slowly line up your shot and slowly pull the trigger. You can also do this when your gun is unloaded and get a feel of how that gun fires, without dealing with recoil. Familiarity with your gun will help you above all else.
While all of these tips are worth implementing for accurate pistol shooting, practice with your gun will always help you become a better shooter. Consider becoming a member at your local range to get in extra practice or take extra training.

How to learn practical shooting. Shooting club “Shot”
– Listen, I want to ask you about something …
– Who needs to be killed?
This is how I sometimes jokingly answer when they turn to me with some kind of request. Today we will not kill anyone, but we will shoot. Targets. But not in a simple shooting range, but in the Shooting Club, where I was recently offered to test my eye in an attempt to knock out the top ten. In addition, they promised to tell me about practical shooting, and teach me how to hold a pistol correctly, shoot and behave if you have a firearm in your hands.But all this knowledge, of course, is best applied in a shooting range or shooting club.
Today at kak_eto_sdelano I will talk about such a sport as practical shooting and how to teach how to shoot correctly, and at the end of the readers’ post “How it is done” there is a bonus.
The first time I managed to hit a target with a firearm was in 2013, when I participated in the “Bloggers in the Army” project in Belarus. Then I fired from a Makarov pistol and a Kalashnikov assault rifle. Second time at the shooting range, in Moscow in 2014, from a Glock pistol.This time I was able to practice shooting with a Czech pistol CZ-75 and Glock-17. In the three years since I held the pistol in my hand, I have forgotten a lot, so I had to learn to shoot again, and at the same time get practice in an interesting sport.
Practical shooting is distinguished from other types of shooting sports dynamism and speed. During the competition, the shooter goes through the proposed exercises, trying to hit all the targets in the shortest possible time. This is the variety of exercises created by the match organizers; power – weapons used in practical shooting differ in caliber and high cartridge energy.The minimum in terms of power is the well-known 9×19 ammunition. Controlling such weapons while firing quickly is much more difficult, but also much more interesting than shooting from small-bore pistols and rifles.
In order to be able to shoot you must be at least 18 years old, not driven to a psychiatric hospital, not drunk and not be a cattle, everything is simple). At the entrance to the club, you also sign a paper in which you read and agree with the rules of conduct in the club, with weapons, and join the shooting club.
Then you buy cartridges, or rather, pay in the amount for a certain number of shots and soon find yourself in a shooting gallery with an instructor who will familiarize you with the rules of handling weapons. They are simple and will be remembered by any capable shooter:
1. I will always treat my weapon as if it were loaded.
2. I will never point my gun where I don’t want to shoot.
3. Before shooting, I always check what is in front of the target and behind it.
4. I will not touch the trigger with my finger until the barrel is pointed at the target.
The Vystrel club has two large galleries of 25 and 50 meters, where you can shoot both pistols and Saiga carbines, Vepr machine guns and machine guns, and even an SVD sniper rifle. You can see the entire arsenal of here. All weapons are certified as sports weapons, and are no different from combat weapons in terms of caliber and power.
But before the event, you need to put on headphones and glasses. The sounds of shots hit the eardrums of even experienced shooters quite noticeably, so you can’t go without them.And the glasses protect the eyes from the shells flying out of the pistol. They even hit me on the head.
Yellow headphones are passive, that is, they equally muffle all sounds, including speech, in black ones – active, microphones are brought out in them, which not only convey the sounds around the shooter, but can also amplify them. But the amplifier’s electrical circuit blocks all harsh sounds: gunshots, rumblings, and even harsh clapping of hands.
Since practical shooting is a dynamic sport, special equipment is required to securely attach the pistol and magazines.Therefore, I was offered to remove the belt from my jeans and change it to a Velcro belt, on which a hard belt with specific magazine pouches and a holster is attached from above.
The belt is tightly fastened with Velcro, holds weapons and ammunition well during sharp and fast movements of the shooter, and does not impede movement.
The belt is attached so that the holster is located exactly along the seam. Pay attention to the holster, it is not leather, but polymer. The holster has an adjustable tilt angle, allowing the
to be tailored to the shooter’s characteristics.When placing a pistol in it, it snaps into place and holds the weapon, therefore, during active actions, it does not fall out.
Magazine pouches look like this. When putting on the belt, they must be positioned in such a way that the pistol can be quickly removed and loaded during competition. They have a cutout in the front where an experienced shooter places his index finger to remove the magazine. This
grip makes it easier and easier to insert the magazine into the pistol grip.
By the way, meet my instructor, this is Lena.She has been practicing shooting for over half a year. During this time, she managed not only to learn how to shoot from different types of weapons, but also took part in various competitions, where she repeatedly won prizes. She even passed qualifying exams, which allowed her to become a judge in this sport! Good progress in six months.
Lena is now showing the correct stance when shooting – feet shoulder-width apart, knees slightly bent, back straight.
You also need to remember the correct grip of the pistol.This collage shows HOW NOT TO hold a gun.
Correctly like this: with the right hand we tightly grasp the handle, with the left we fix it as in the photo. The thumbs of both hands are pointing towards the target and are relaxed. If you are left-handed, then we do the opposite.
Now we learn to aim at the target. Everything is clearly shown in the picture – you need to focus on the front sight, not on the target.
Approximately in this way – visually align the front sight at the end of the barrel with the sight.True, in the photo the front sight is blurred, and when aiming it should be clearly visible, and the rear sight, on the contrary, should be blurred.
After you have focused on the front sight and aligned it with the target on the target, you need to smoothly press the trigger all the way with the pad of your index finger. Not with a sharp movement, but smoothly, so that the trunk does not “peck” and does not fly away strongly upward.
Now let’s load the cartridges into the magazine. They are not much different from the combat ones in terms of their characteristics, but just like pistols, they are certified as sports ones.
Insert the magazine into the gun.
The CZ-75 is a self-loading pistol, so you can shoot immediately after removing the safety lock. It is not necessary to cock the trigger, but it is possible to make it easier to start shooting at the target.
But first you need to send the cartridge from the store to the chamber by distorting the bolt.
Now trying not to forget everything that the instructor told me earlier, I shoot at the target. Hands sweating with excitement do not help much to hit the target.In the summer, I actively practiced in the shooting range from an air rifle, so it seems like it turns out to hit. But the recoil from firearms certainly makes itself felt.
At the end of firing, you need to remove the magazine and distort the bolt to make sure that there are no cartridges left in the chamber, and press the trigger. If, at the end of firing, the cartridge remains, then when the shutter is jerked, it will fly out of the window to eject the cartridge case. It so happens that the shooter forgets to take out the magazine, twists the shutter, then makes a control release, and if the magazine is not empty, then a shot is fired.In competitions, they will be disqualified for this.
Now let’s check how accurate my shots were. It turns out I wasn’t that bad). Lena praises me and asks if I really fired a pistol three years ago? Painfully, my bullets hit the center of the target.
The octagonal target for practical shooting is divided into three sectors: alpha, charlie and delta. Alpha is worth 5 points, Charlie is 3 points and Delta is 1 point. Out of fifteen shots, I hit the alpha 12 times and the Charlie three times.
Notice the mountain of sand behind the target, this is a bullet trap.
But this was only the “first” acquaintance with pistol shooting. Now I will tell you about the practical shooting competition and I will try to repeat it myself after the instructors.
To do this, we form a conditional space from wooden beams on the floor, placing screens along them in a certain order. At competitions, organizers can build a variety of spaces from doors, windows, tunnels, and instead of bars on the floor there can be other restraints, such as drawn lines, for which a spade is punished with penalty points.The shooter’s movements limit the foul lines, but within them he can choose any path and order of hitting targets. This freestyle is one of the basic principles of practical shooting.
Decorations hide the targets that the shooter must hit from different positions in a minimum time, quickly moving between firing positions. Before the start of the competition, the shooter is given time to familiarize himself with the space, so that he re-aligns and chooses the correct route for more effective hitting of targets.
Some targets are visible only at certain points.
Targets in practical shooting can be cardboard and metal, stationary and moving, hidden behind free-kick targets and decorations. The white cardboard is a penalty target, you can’t hit it. Previously, she personified the hostage, which the criminal was hiding behind, but now the figures of people have been replaced with conventional cardboard boxes.
Hitting each target is worth points, and missing a target in practical shooting is punishable by a penalty of 10 points.But the shooter can fire a couple of additional bullets at a difficult target (although this will take additional time). It happens that in a hurry, the shooter may simply forget to shoot at one of several targets, for which he also receives a serious penalty. The complexity and interest of the competition depend on the variety of targets to be hit.
In practical shooting, the total of points is divided by the time taken to hit the targets. Thus, the final result is displayed. For this, a special timer is used, which records each shot, counting the time.
In order to understand how it all looks in practice, my instructor Lena will go through the exercise and try to hit the targets as accurately as possible in the shortest possible time.
The signal is ringing and the time has passed!
I will show six targets out of eight that had to be hit. The result speaks for itself.
The timer display shows the final result – points divided by time.
Now it’s my turn.
I hit the targets quite accurately, but spent more time.I had nowhere to rush, so I didn’t run and just walked along the corridor.
Another instructor passed the drill after me and hit several targets through a window in the wall.
And then finished off more inaccessible targets.
In the end I practiced shooting with the Glock. The basic difference between the Glock and the CZ-75 is that the Glock lacks a trigger and does not have automatic fuses. Glock is built according to the “striker scheme”: in it, the spring-loaded spokes of the striker beats on the primer, which is cocked by the movement of the shutter and, in part, by the movement of the trigger.Three automatic safety devices “Glock” reliably protect against accidental firing, but are disabled as the shooter presses the trigger. One of them is just the plate on the trigger, but the other two are hidden inside the pistol.
With a Glock pistol, I showed almost the same result as with a CZ-75.
Now you know what practical shooting is.

Tier GTA 5 – where is the shooting club in Los Santos
The fastest way to improve a character’s shooting skills is to visit a shooting gallery. There are only two shooting ranges in the state of San Andreas, and both of them are located in the Ammu-Nation weapons and equipment stores located in Los Santos – on Popular Street, in the southeastern part of the city, and on Elgin Avenue, in the center …Shops with a shooting range are marked with a symbol on the map.
You can go to the shooting range of any of the above shops and practice shooting almost from the very beginning of the game – this opportunity will become available after completing the story mission “Franklin and Lamar” (Franklin and Lamar). The fee for using the shooting range is purely formal – only $ 14.
To start, you need to go to the doors of the Los Santos Shooting Club and press the “E” key, you do not need to enter the room itself.You will be offered several types of missions designed to test the accuracy and rate of fire of your shooting with different types of weapons. If the character’s arsenal does not have any of the barrels or cartridges, they can be opened during the passage of shooting tests by shooting for “gold” in tasks for other types of weapons of the same class.
In total, there are three tests for each type of firearm in the range. After you select a challenge, a countdown will begin, at the end of which targets will appear.The round will end either after all targets have been hit or after the time allowed has elapsed.
Points in accuracy tests are awarded according to the part of the target you hit. So, for the outer black circle you will receive 10 points, for the next blue circle – 25, for hitting the red one will be awarded 50, while hitting the yellow center of the target, the bull’s-eye, you will receive 100 points.
By hitting targets in a row, you can triple the points multiplier.So, to get a 2X multiplier, you need to hit the target five times – the sixth well-aimed shot will already bring double the number of points. The 3X multiplier will open after the tenth hit on the target, and all subsequent hits on the target will bring three times more points. But if you miss, the multiplier will be reset to 1X, and you will have to accumulate hits first. In the case of using automatic weapons, one mistake is allowed.
Based on the results of the passed test, you will receive a medal: bronze, silver or gold.
Passing the tests of the shooting gallery is mandatory to reach 100 percent in the statistics of passing the game – it is enough to get medals of any value in all tasks. In addition, receiving awards for marksmanship will bring considerable material benefits: after passing three tests with each type of small arms, a customer of the Ammu-Nation chain of stores will receive a discount on the entire range.
All “returning” players, that is, those who have already played GTA 5 on consoles of the previous generation, and then purchased the game for any of the “new” platforms, get access to an exclusive content package, which includes an experimental railgun an army prototype of a hand-held energy cannon.They will also receive four bonus tests in the shooting range for this weapon, but their completion does not affect getting 100 percent in the game statistics.

Which Shooting Advice Quickly Made You The Best Basketball Player?
#Question name: What shooting tip quickly made you a better basketball player?
Top 10 Tips to Become a Professional Basketball Player!
I’ve tried to read all Quora answers and basketball resources for this question, and below are the best tips for becoming a pro basketball player.I hope you like it.
# 1. Get in shape
In general, there is very little to get you started, but getting a good pair of basketball shoes is important as the wrong look can lead to injury. Since the sport involves a lot of running and jumping, good support and cushioning are vital. There are high boots that provide more ankle support, but they are a little heavier when playing. Medium shoes are an easier choice, but the downside is that the ankle support is not as good.Choose the best pair that suits your needs based on your position and the level of competition you will be playing in.
# 2. Learn to jump higher
If you don’t go out at least once a week and try to jump as high as you can, then you are missing the forest for the trees. Forget about various plunge and strength exercises, because the first thing you can do to jump higher is to practice jumping high.
A good vertical jump program should set aside some time each week for this.The only thing I know about this is our own vertical jump training.
This method can increase your vertical by 9-15 inches in just 8 weeks.
More information: Swing-Shock method
# 3. Warm up
It is recommended to warm up before playing basketball. Warming up reduces the likelihood of injury and is an effective way to improve your performance. Basketball is a fast-paced sport, so a sufficient warm-up is necessary to prepare for the upcoming game.A good warm-up should raise your heart rate and include some exercise before starting.
# 4. Get in shape
Basketball is a physically challenging sport, so it’s best to be as good as possible. The better you get in shape, the higher your stamina and the faster your response time. This will also help prevent injury. Running will help boost your cardiovascular fitness for basketball, while sports such as yoga will increase your flexibility and agility.
# 5. practice
There is no substitute for practice. Only by working hard on key skills like passing, dribbling and shooting can a player hope to improve. Especially as a beginner to the sport, mastering the basics of basketball is critical to your development and enjoyment of the game.
# 6. Dribbling with your weak hand
Be sure to practice dribbling with your weak hand until you can handle the ball with either hand. Always behave with your head up, not down so you can see what is happening around you, and only behave as fast as you can while maintaining control of the ball.
# 7. Shooting
To shoot more effectively, practice shooting from a variety of positions every day. It’s important to find out what your basketball shooting range is. Remember to always stick to your target to maintain your technique and keep an eye on the edge of the basket throughout the entire shot.
# 8. Don’t dribble too hard.
One of the key mistakes people make is to bounce off the ball as hard as they can when dribbling.Dribbling should be done with bent knees, back straight and head up. Drop just above your knee, and remember to bounce gently and hold the ball in your hands, rather than bouncing too hard on the floor.
# 9. Master some skills, then move on to others.
Confidence grows as you learn a few skills and then move on to others. It is best to be able to shoot from a short distance and then gradually increase the distance over time.As a beginner, master the basics first, rather than trying to hit the first time. For dribbling, control is better than speed and this will improve with practice.
# 10. Find a good coach and study other players
If you have a real passion for the game, it might be worth joining a club where coaches can point you in the right direction and help you develop your game. Observing other players, especially professionals, can teach subtle game skills such as movement, defense, and attack tactics.

How to improve the accuracy of shooting in first person shooters
To become a pro in shooters, you need to develop good habits and learn to “hold your mouse correctly.”
Everyone understands that mastery is achieved by training, and the more you play, the better you do it. You can hardly learn anything by spending all the time playing games contemplating the respawn timer. Improving your marksmanship is not a bare skill build.This is the formation of good habits, and getting rid of bad ones, correct training and even how you hold the mouse.
Overwatch was a huge success for Blizzard. With a vibrant world and all-round characters, Overwatch is bringing the FPS genre to a whole new market. If Overwatch (or any other first-person shooter) is the first game in which you try to “hang headshots”, relying on the keyboard and mouse, then this guide will explain you how to improve the accuracy of shooting in first-person shooters.
Obviously, consistent practice will benefit you. The more you play shooters, the better your skills become. But for some tips on how to speed up this process, I reached out to professional player and team member Splyce, Remy “Adetonian” Cabresin.
Improving your shooting accuracy does not only depend on your skill. You also need to learn how to practice and hold the mouse correctly, pay attention to good habits and get rid of bad ones.
Finding the Right Equipment
First, your skill is only as good as your equipment allows.The two most important parts of it when it comes to accuracy are the mouse and the mat. Fortunately, current mouse sensor technology allows the protein to enter the eye without damaging the skin. Pay attention to the DPI range, weight and key layout. Usually a lighter and simpler mouse is recommended. In shooters, you will most likely need one or two keys for basic functions, and a lightweight mouse is easier to drive across the mat.
You also need the fastest possible response time, because it is impossible to take headshots when the mouse is slower than your reflexes.And there is a difference between the response of different mice, which we have already written about in the past. We believe there are the best gaming mice out there, but the right choice is the one that fits your hand.
Next, you need to choose a good rug. I recommend picking the biggest one that will fit on your desk, because lifting and rearranging the mouse in the middle of a firefight is not the best option. For the most part, this is a problem for players using the lowest DPI settings requiring much more arm movement.
Your equipment is in order, it’s time to take care of your body. Some players have argued that the way you grip the mouse affects performance (the most talked about being claw, palm, and fingertip grip), but Adetonian believes that how comfortable you feel is more important than that. There are a lot of controversial infographics out there, but most of it comes down to hand size and how well the mouse is in it.
The most important thing is the overall ergonomics of your setup.If you hunch over due to fatigue, it will affect the game. And make sure you have enough room for your wrists.
Mouse sensitivity is the most important thing for marksmanship in FPS. But there are no magic settings that automatically increase the skill. It’s all about finding those parameter values with which you feel comfortable, while maintaining complete control over the situation.
As I’ve discussed in my list of gaming mouse myths, high DPI isn’t always the best.Some manipulators really work worse at maximum DPI values, when the slightest movement of the brush turns into sweeping, sharp jerks of the cursor. It does not add clarity that you have to choose between DPI in the mouse driver and the sensitivity settings in the game itself. Usually the best solution is to install it on Windows and tweak it as it feels right in the game.
Low sensitivity allows you to better control the cursor, make more precise movements, but at the same time the elbow is more involved in the control than the wrist.I advise you to start with 400-800 DPI, gradually increasing to a comfortable value. (On high-resolution monitors, 1000 DPI would be more appropriate for Windows.) Here’s a good example of the difference between low and high sensitivity.
Movement from one edge of the mat to the other at 400 DPI:
The same movement, but already with 1600 DPI:
If you see that when firing the scope is shifted to the side, try to reduce the in-game sensitivity. Conversely, if your scope does not keep up with the enemy, or you have to make too wide movements with your hand for normal turns, increase the sensitivity value.
Important point: do not get too carried away with the settings of this parameter. I do not recommend changing them after every bad game – it will only confuse your muscle memory. Only do this on long losing streaks, give yourself a chance to get used to the settings before you decide that they are not for you.
Technique and Sense
There are two main types of aiming: dribble and swoop. Doing is trying to keep the crosshair on the enemy all the time – useful for auto-weapon damage dealers like Soldier 76 and Tracer from Overwatch.
Second type – quick aiming, shooting, and returning the crosshair to neutral position. Popular with low rate of fire weapons such as snipers or McCree.
Regardless of which character you play, I recommend that you keep at gunpoint those places where you expect the enemy to appear. Without it, you are more likely to miss or not fast enough to shoot.
When not in combat, keep the crosshair at the corner where you are waiting for the enemy.After going around this corner, take aim at the next one. So move around.
Mastery is achieved by training
Well, you have chosen the sensitivity for your hand, it’s time to work on muscle memory. Shooting from the hip, in particular, strongly depends on it, but, in addition, this applies to all aspects of the shooter: movement around the map, spinning around you when attacking from the back, or shooting at a fast-moving target.
Some people think that accuracy can be improved in some browser games, but all they do is improve their reflexes.The thing is that in-game sensitivity and cursor speed in Windows are not the same thing, and this is perfectly reflected in muscle memory.
Accuracy is best trained in the game itself. Guidance – move the crosshair to the selected point and start moving. Simulate your movements during a firefight, while keeping the crosshair on the point. According to Adetonian’a, this is how muscle memory is trained.
Once you have learned to hold the scope still on a static target, it’s time to learn with a moving target.Your task: to learn how to hit it, while remaining mobile, so keep strafing, keeping your opponent in sight. Do not wait until he himself is in your crosshair, the enemy will try to move chaotically and unpredictably, as you should.
This is where private games with bots come in handy. The difficult AI mode for bots will make them run more or less realistically, just make sure to disable their damage. There is no need to worry about bots tearing you apart brutally when you just want to practice a little.
Overwatch private games are great for training offhand shooting. Create a game with Ana’s six bots on the enemy team and change the settings to “headshots only”. The hero Ana does not know how to do this, so the opponents will only run around the map, giving you the opportunity to learn without the risk of going to respawn.
If you prefer, say, CS: GO, then you can arrange similar practices there. In CS: GO, accuracy training is about learning the unique spread patterns of each weapon.But, in general, the above training method will pump up your skill, it is only important to remember that you need to practice exactly in the game in which you want to show off your skill.
Having gained muscle memory, you can start consolidating it so that it does not leave you after changing the game or “moving” to a new mouse or monitor with a higher resolution. The best way to do this is to measure the distance your mouse travels to rotate 180 degrees in a game, and then adjust the sensitivity in a new game (or on new hardware) until the two match.Or measure how much your character turns when you run the mouse from one edge of the mat to the other.
It goes without saying that even a simple game of different FPS has a positive effect on skills. Follow the tips above, search for more information on your favorite shooter, and you can shoot your opponent’s head even faster.
Hyper Scape Weapon Guide – Best Weapon in Hyper Scape
In this Hyper Scape guide, you will learn about all the weapons available at the time of the technical beta.Ubisoft’s Hyper Scape offers a fresh take on the Battle Royale genre. Nine unique weapons can be found and upgraded on the futuristic urban battlefield. While the range is a great way to practice each one, many have unique properties that you might not be aware of to begin with.
The article is a translation of the English-language guide from thegamer.com portal.
Upgrading Weapons in Hyper Scape
Each weapon in Hyper Scape can be upgraded four times.When interacting with the same type that you hold in your hands, they merge and form an improved version of the weapon. The upgrade levels are stackable, so if you have a Level 2 Mammoth equipped, when interacting with another Level 2 Mammoth, your weapon will be upgraded to Level 4.
Each improvement increases the characteristics of the weapon – as a rule, this concerns the size of the magazine, but with the last 4th improvement, the size of the magazine and the damage done increase. There are a few exceptions that we will look at separately.Damage increase is critical, so don’t ignore this aspect.
D-Tap is an automatic target acquisition pistol. The aiming system displays a square in the middle of the screen and automatically locks onto the enemy closest to the center. Switching targets is not possible, even if someone is then closer to the center. If you want to switch to another enemy, you need to first remove the scope from the current one. Each shot deals 5 points of damage at any distance, so it is best to keep the enemy away.
- Magazine Size: 15; 17; 18; twenty; 23.
- Damage: 5; five; five; five; 6.
D-Tap has the lowest TTK in the game and cannot kill an enemy with one magazine up to the maximum level. It is also impossible to make a headshot with it. While great for chasing high mobility enemies, it just can’t deal enough damage to be selected over other weapons.
Riot One is a heavy semi-automatic pistol.Headshot deals 1.5x damage and, despite slow firing, can kill enemies with one magazine, even without being upgraded. Riot One also has no damage drop with distance.
Improvements for Riot One:
- Damage (body): 26; 29; 31; 34; 38.
- Damage (head): 39; 43; 46; 51; 57.
Fully Upgraded Riot One doesn’t deal enough damage for 2 headshots. So after the second upgrade, you can kill with two headshots and one body shot.However, the fully upgraded Riot One can only kill with two shots to the body and one to the head. The pistol has almost zero recoil and decent range, so it’s a good replacement for heavier weapons like the Skybreaker.
Mammoth MK 1
Mammoth MK 1 is a fairly standard pump action shotgun, but it has certain properties that are important to know. The weapon fires 13 shots with a standard pattern and can deal decent damage even at medium range due to its small spread.
Improvements for Mammoth MK 1:
- Magazine size: 5; 6; 7; eight; 9.
- Damage (body): 75; 75; 75; 75; 105.
- Damage (head): 105; 105; 105; 105; 120.
Mammoth MK 1 is not the best weapon in Hyper Scape, but it can kill an enemy with one headshot, provided you are within 6 feet of the target.
Ripper is a fully automatic assault rifle with a fairly predictable vertical recoil.The damage done does not drop with distance, and the aiming accuracy is quite high.
- Magazine size: 23; 26; 28; thirty; 36.
- Damage (body): 11; eleven; eleven; 13.
- Damage (head): 16; sixteen; sixteen; sixteen; 19.
This weapon, even without improvements, can destroy the enemy with just one magazine. However, while the fully upgraded Ripper has a lower TTK, there are better automatic weapon options.
Hexfire is an automatic gatling with a huge magazine and long reload times. It deals less damage with increasing distance to the target, and shooting from the hip increases the spread of bullets.
Upgrades for Hexfire:
- Magazine size: 150; 180; 210; 240; 270.
- Damage (body): 4; 4; 4; 4; 5.
- Damage (head): 6; 6; 6; 6; 7.
The strength of the Hexfire lies in its ease of use.Even without an upgrade, this weapon is great for attacking opponents with high mobility. Compared to the Ripper, Hexfire is capable of doing much more damage.
Protocol V is a hitscan sniper rifle and one of the most powerful weapons in the game. She has extremely limited ammunition and should be considered a special weapon.
Improvements for Protocol V:
- Damage (body): 50: 58; 65; 73; 80.
- Damage (head): 75; 87; 97; 109; 120.
An unlimited-range hitscan weapon that can destroy an enemy in one shot is undoubtedly extremely powerful. Protocol V is an amazing tool, combined with high ground and wall-building ability that allows you to position yourself well.
Komodo looks most like a rocket launcher, but this weapon is unique in that it deals the same damage throughout the blast radius.Whether you hit with a direct shot or catch an enemy in AOE, the effect will be the same.
Improvements for Komodo:
- Magazine size: 3; 4; five; 6; 7.
- Damage: 20; twenty; twenty; twenty; 25.
Komodo has a high rate of fire, and the shells fly quickly, so this weapon is beneficial to use from above. Combined with the teleport hack, Komodo can do a lot of damage. The weapon is especially effective inside buildings because it does not damage the owner.
Salvo EPL is a pretty interesting grenade launcher. Shots will always bounce twice, but only if you don’t hit the enemy directly. It seems that the projectile of the weapon has a fairly large target detection radius, since it explodes even with an indirect hit.
Improvements for Salvo EPL:
- Magazine size: 5; 6; 7; eight; 9.
