    Okay so I was bored and just decided to write this quick tutorial. Post comments below if I need to add/drop anything.


    Learn To Drop Shot

    1. I would recommend switching your button layout to Tactical. This makes it much easier to lay down while shooting. It is a much more natural motion. This is NOT required but RECOMMENDED.

    2. Okay, now for the real stuff. Start shooting, about a millisecond later start to hold down your Right Joystick and aim in. (B if you are using Default button layout still.) You should practice this first in a private match just so you get used to it.​

    Quick Tips

    1. When switching to Tactical button layout, it might take some time to get used to. But if you can't use it right away don't just switch back to default. Try using tactical some more and you will like it.

    2. When going prone (laying down) I usually keep holding the Right Joystick even when I go all the way down because when I let go sometimes I stop when I am crouching.

    3. If you are planning to drop shot with a Single or Burst gun you will need a lot more practice (Ex: Fal, Sniper, M16, Famas, Pistols, etc.)

    For all the Haters out there. Don't be trolls and rip on my tut. I know this was for beginners but thought it might help some people out.

    Thank me if the tut helped. :smile:

    It's funny because i learned to shoot and drop before I ever heard of dropshotting.. And then people were calling me a dropshotter, and then i finally found out what it was.. haha. It's really easy.. prone while shoot... thats about it.

    this might be a stupid question but does this really help? I don't seem to have too much trouble killing people who dropshot. I tried doing it too and it just seems like a pain to do everytime. I guess its just a matter of getting used to it.

    It is a lot less effective in MW2. In COD4, drop-shotting was a lot more effective.

    It may not make too much of a difference. But sometimes it makes the difference between life or death. If it seems uncomfortable now then just keep doing it and it will seem more natural.

    No, actually it's dropping and shooting.

    @OP This is just a failure of a "tutorial", because I think it's obvious how to drop shot.

    Don't rag on the guy, he even included stuff such as switching to tactical like all good players. Its not "obvious" to everyone, just like how people still think FMJ adds damage.

    Thumbs up OP!

    it worked better in cod 4, best in WaW. it still works it's just harder to do as guns can often kill you faster i find in this one, but it can easily help, and a lot of people get mad when you do it and it's funny :smile:

    Dropshotting was more effective in COD4 and WaW, but I still do it in MW2.
