How to perform a slide cancel in Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2

Movement is incredibly vital in multiplayer gun games. Slide cancelling was a prominent feature in Call of Duty: Warzone (2019). It is a momentum and movement-based mechanic that comes in handy in order to escape dicey situations and also to get the jump on your opponents. 

However, Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 have removed the ability to slide cancel. Even though slide cancelling has been removed, there is still a way to implement it in Warzone 2 as well as Modern Warfare 2. This guide will show you how to pull off a slide cancel.

As of now, slide cancelling still works in Warzone 2 as well as Modern Warfare 2. However, it is to be noted that slide cancelling can be performed through a workaround, not an official method, meaning that this could be very well patched in the future. 

And that’s how you can perform a slide cancel in Warzone 2 as well as Modern Warfare 2. Activision may add this feature down the line, considering that it’s such a fan-favourite feature but nothing is confirmed as of now. 

It is worth noting that slide cancelling will require a bit of practice to master it. This movement is not easy to perform, but you’ll eventually get the hang of it in no time with more practice.
