What is ADS in Call of Duty Mobile?

Call of Duty Mobile is a new mobile shooter game developed by TiMi Studios and released in 2019. Even though Call of Duty is one of the most popular game series nowadays, its mechanics may feel weird for new players. ADS (Aiming Down Sights) is one of the basic mechanics in the Call of Duty games. This guide will explain to new mobile players this mechanic.

ADS in Call of Duty Mobile

Aiming Down Sights in Call of Duty Mobile is one of two aiming modes. Mostly your character uses the Hip Fire mode. It means that you will be able to walk at standard speed but with some issues. In case you will try to shoot with Hip Fire, mode your bullet spread will be big. If your opponent is far enough, you won’t be able to shot it so easily.

As an alternative to the mobile but inaccurate Hip Fire mode, there is ADS mode. By using it, your character will slow down and start to lean to the sights. This will help you to shoot more precisely but the slowed movement speed makes it unusable most of the time. You need to enter ADS mode only when you have to shoot accurately.

Most of the weapons are able to deal lots of damage on quite a big range with ADS mode. Only shotguns don’t get additional accuracy that much. However, some of the weapons demand from you to use this mode. Mostly these are sniper rifles. Lots of them have a lack of fire rate and missing a shot because of the Hip Fire mode’s bigger bullet spread will make you vulnerable for a counterattack. So, sniper rifles are better when you are using ADS mode while trying to kill someone.
