Wondering how to Slide Cancel in Warzone 2? We’re here to show you how it’s done. Slide Cancelling is a powerful movement tool that was first introduced in Modern Warfare (2019), carrying over into Call of Duty: Warzone. While not technically an intended mechanic, the Slide Cancel exploit is so commonplace that it’s now hard to imagine a Modern Warfare game without it. 

With Season 5 underway, you’ll want to know how to Slide Cancel to increase your chances of survival. Before we dive in, see our guide on how to get longshot kills in MW2 to take out enemies from afar.

How to Slide Cancel in Warzone 2

To Slide Cancel in Warzone 2, you need to enter the game’s settings menu. Then head over to the controller menu and move down to Weapon Mount Activation. Change this setting to Double-Tap ADS (Aim Down Sights). Then, move to Advance settings and turn off both Automatic Ground Mantle and Grounded Mantle.

With these settings adjusted, the actual process of Slide Cancelling is surprisingly simple. All you need to do is start tactical sprinting and then slide. While sliding, activate ADS twice and then hit the jump button. If this is done correctly you will perform a Slide Cancel. 

It might take some fiddling around with settings – as well as practicing the technique itself – to make Slide Cancelling viable to use. But once you’ve got Slide Cancelling mastered, you’ll easily have a leg up on the competition.
