    Very simple: Just wanna know what a dropshot is? Seems like it's very usefull, so would be nice if someone could tell something more about it.

    And yes, I tried to search.

    Going prone at the start/middle of a gunfight, in order to catch your opponent off guard and pump a few bullets into their shins while they aim where you used to be. If done well, it can be a very useful tactic, if done poorly or facing an intelligent enemy, you'll give them a free headshot.

    If u are in a 1vs1 situation u go immediately prone while shooting on your enemy. Hope that helps.

    Edit: There was someone faster than me :)

    Aaah, of course :) . I know, just didn't think about that is was this there is called dropshot. Gotta be 'cause you're shooting while dropping to the ground?

    And yes, it can be very usefull. But you gotta learn how and when to use too I guess.

    A stupid way to get killed.

    I can understand a dolphin dive but going into prone when standing still while someone is shooting at you is just not physically possible. Interesting programming variable to throw in this game.

    Yeah yeah, arcadey I know but it's really one of the things that irritates me.

    Though I do like killing an attempted dropshotter.

    I wouldn't adivse using it. More times than not I will kill a dropshotter with a headshot before they kill me. Its just a way some think they can get an edge. And I suppose some can and have mastered it, but like I said....I'm no good player by any means but more often than not I can kill a dropshotter first

    Not just THIS game. Dropshotting has been in COD since COD4. It's really nothing to get worried about, i find it works best when you are up against a noob, and (failing completely) miss the first 10 bullets. Hitting the deck has saved me MANY more times than it has hurt me.

    It's also better to use it with the Tactical button layout, works pretty damn well for me.

    I use it very rarely, like when I turn around after killing a guy and there is another in the distance who is about to start shotting. I hit the deck and get him in his junk. I usually don't killed by them because I aim for the chest so the drop period is not bad.

    I recommend learning to drop shot.. It has saved me more than once! I recommend switching your button layout to tactical so that crouch/prone is clicking in the right thumbstick and knifing is now 'B' (XBOX 360)

    Use the Tactical button layout, not the default. Tactical helps you dropshot with ease.

    I've started conditioning myself to aim low on my initial aim. It allows me to headshot the plethora of players running this tactic. I like using hardened pro and allowing the recoil of the first few shots to carry my aim up to torso on the few brave individuals that still stand up to fire. Taking their initiative bullets doesn't hurt my aim too bad with the Hardened Pro perk.

    Since I switched to tactical I got way less knifing kills, since it's harder to aim your knife when playing on tactical & it takes a bit longer, my k/d ratio did go up though and I do dropshot a lot with great effect, but it will fail too & that's when you will feel the enemy’s blade in your body & think fuck I could have knifed him a seconds ago, dropshot try hard n00b…
