Practice, practice, and practice
There are no easy ways of being a professional at FPS games; you have to keep playing and learning at the same time. Try playing alone against the computer as you start getting familiar with the controls, guns and also how the game works. After you feel like you’re getting the hang of it, try online competitive play against real people, it’s okay if you’re doing poorly in the match, all you need to do is to keep learning.
Tip: besides practicing, it’s always a good idea to know the maps of the game, that will help a lot during games as you can predict where your enemy is while also securing an escape route for yourself.
Familiarize yourself with the guns
We’ve mentioned before that it is essential to know all of the weapons. Usually, in FPS games most of the firearms are handguns, shotguns, rifles, and sniper rifles. Mastering these guns can help you to use every weapon in every situation, which will make you a jack of trades, which is very good as every match have an unpredicted situation.
Tip: Rifles are perfect in all condition but have the least damage compared to shotguns and sniper rifles. Snipers are great from afar and can usually kill in one shot, while the shotgun is perfect to counter these long-range killers in close range.
Awareness and sensitivity
One of the most important thing in playing FPS games are your hearings. Certain sounds or footsteps can alarm you, and vice versa for your enemies as well. For the best awareness, we recommend getting a good headphone and a gaming mouse, it doesn’t have to be a premium brand, but a decent one will be enough.
Tip: low sensitivity is perfect for a sniping mode, make sure you get a mouse that has a button that can quickly switch the sensitivity speed. Also, a gaming mouse with a higher DPI (dot per inch), will help in your FPS performances.
