According to Redbull's reports. when a gun recoils, the initial nine bullets force the gun downward. In order to address this, you need to adjust your aim by moving your mouse in the opposite direction.

Adjust the crosshair placement

In any FPS, adjusting crosshairs as per personal preference is important. Know in what ways you are comfortable and adjust your gunplay accordingly. You can customize the colour, format, and visual style of the crosshairs to make them more useful in your game strategy. There are many different types of games, and a single crosshair configuration does not fit all of them. Therefore, you need to practice often to get hold of what suits your gameplay.

Crouch while shooting

The experienced or “Pro-player” always aim for a headshot to get more damage or even kill the opponent. Therefore, while starting the game you must understand how your enemy team is playing. As a beginner, always crouch to have safe gameplay and to avoid getting killed at an early stage.

Communicate with teammates

Teamwork is dream work. Make sure you are communicating with your teammates and discussing every move of attack together to lead your team to victory. Always discuss and plan strategies to work together as a team.
