How to flickshot / dragshot on Battlefield 5 (how to aim bf5)


Hey what’s going on guys it’s Ascend Dazs
here. Today We are going to cover an in depth guide
on how to Dragshot in Battlefield 5. Battlefield games are unique for sniping where
every second matters and with the TTK being so fast you have to be just as agile to get
the kill. Remember that being quick is only part of
the puzzle to being a better player. You can be strong mechanically but you always
need good game sense and I always urge having the better positioning. This will cover mostly PC but the concept
can be applied to console in terms of overall mindset and steps you can take to improve. Such as High sens, stick grips, and practice
location. Dragshots is a tool within your skill set
such as a pop shot, leading shot, hard scope, or as we will cover today a dragshot. It can also be known as a flick shot or some
call a snap. A recon essentially has this as their biggest
tool kit it being an extension of the assault class. If you cannot aim and get better positioning
you will be punished as your tool kit has nothing else besides this. It’s why you are given a beacon and a flare
to know where your enemy is. Remember to note as you practice a dragshot
that doing dragshots constantly on an enemy is not exactly the most efficient way to aim. As you can see in this shot here I try and
predict the location and adjust the aim to where the target ended up. The fastest most effective way to get the
kill is to have the shot lined up before any of that is needed. It’s it a tool and be careful not to always
rely on it or you will tire yourself out and it leads to unpredictable encounters. Again, seconds matter. You need to be able counter with a dragshot
and is why it is vital. Real quick will cover some of the settings
that help you improve your base dragshot technique. A dragshot is muscle memory and not a shot
you think about. If you miss a dragshot it is because you are
overthinking or not comfortable. For some quick settings I run 0% sensitivity in game and 1800 DPI. That is 17.45 inches per 360 or 44 centimeters
for 360. To find your inches or CM per 360 hit a mark
on the wall and spin til you see it or use a website to help calculate it like Mouse-Sensitivity.com
(link in the description down below). I personally prefer to drag my arm as it helps
with my consistency. I did run high sensitivity long time ago and
found it was harder for me to be consistent. I usually cramped up, got tense, or cold it
messed up my shot. My arm just overall felt more consistent. For those using lower sens the speed comes
with time and practice. There is no right or wrong with sensitivity
though. Running a higher sens can give you a faster
speed also if you are comfortable. I want to cover mice and mouse pads just slightly
on why I run my mouse to help you decide on your own. This is also a comfort item, note that comfort
and muscle memory is a reoccuring theme here. I have utilized the G903, G305, G PRO Wireless,
and the G403. The G903 was the heaviest but the nicest to
hold. For dragshots on a lower sens it can be more
cumbersome to use drag your mouse for hours on end. The G403 was fantastic but I used a bungie
to remove the wire. I have a bit of a OCD when in the heat of
the moment I can forget about my cable. So not having a cable for wireless removes
one more thing I have to manage. Again a personal preference thing. The G PRO wireless feels like the G403 but
is a 80g mouse and without the wire is fantastic for low sens players if you enjoy that shape And finally the G305 is great if on a budget
and when modded like I have on stream with a lithium battery triple AAA converter, different
mouse feet, and remove the back gets the mouse to 76g. Again, this comes all to comfort for pull
off a proper dragshot. Doesn’t matter if the mouse has the best sensor,
because if you can’t stand the shape or it makes your hand feel off then so will your
shot. The way you hold your mouse can have an impact
and have a list of way you can hold your mouse and see what might suit your style as your
research different mouse. My grip is a fingertip grip. Mouse pads depend on the user. I prefer Logitech or Glorious PC Gaming mouse
pads as they are smoother and have less resistance on them. Reason I prefer this is when I glide to my
target I want it to be fast and smooth. For a high sens perhaps having the resistance
on a cloth pad could be preferred as it helps you identify in your hand where you are moving
the mouse. I don’t prefer hard surface because they dull
over time and some parts of the mats become inconsistent. Also they run down the mouse feet very quickly
if you are moving all over the place on a hard surface. So 100% for dragshot consistency I can reliable
say go cloth. Some could argue that it would help to have
a hard surface for faster glide but again goes back to the consistency. Also, need comfort for consistency. Some other quick settings that can affect
your dragshot the most is FOV and ADS FOV on or OFF. This changes how much of the screen you see. If you have the FOV lower then it feels more
cramped and have to memorize the space further out of your camera to drag. And if it is higher than you can see more
but the targets will appear smaller. So it can require more precision mentally
to hit. ADS FOV applies the FOV when aiming down sights. I prefer 101 personally I hope digging into my mindset helps you decide
on what you should chose. Because every person is different and will
adjust differently. Now for how to practice we are going to utilize
the new test range for a consistent location to practice. I prefer the 6x as a high zoom is what I used
in every battlefield for the most part, I just have developed a comfort level on it. Dragshots can exist on Iron sites but they
will feel much smaller in movement. Something to note. Don’t go too crazy dragshotting when you have
your aim already centered and are close to the target. Dragshots are there not to show off but to
make quick corrections. But of course when the correction is done
well, it does look really epic. Now let’s find a consistent target, when practicing
you want to start small and move in slow. I recommend when practicing not to go too
crazy but doing this even 5 – 10 minutes a day will get you crazy consistency. Start off slow so you give your hand or body
time memorize the movement and visually see the target it helps. So this overall will help build consistency. Also keep it consistent where you can see
the target then move outside where you cannot see the target anymore. Also to add when your starting off slow as
you begin to improve to go faster and faster and faster and increase the speed as you feel
more comfortable. Movement can affect a dragshot in Battlefield
which is the control stat also for snipers. I will cover the control stat are greater
length in tomorrow’s video. But, visually but I want touch on it here
as it does affect what you can see. Note that movement from the lightened stock
can really have an impact so just keep slow and consistent at the start and as you improve
and get better you might prefer that high movement utilize the lightened stock. Start only with stationary targets and move
slowly into the moving targets as you learn to feel super comfortable. Do not get discouraged if you hop into a game
after a week of practice and find you cant snap. Remember dragshots is a way to reflex and
kill not as a means to use and it happens when you least expect it. But players do move differently. Be sure to note that within the test range
here are various ways that you can obviously practice. Making targets pop in various areas and practice
centering your aim. Building fundamentals though are extremely
important. If you don’t have a good base you can’t improve. Note as you practice, It is all about fine
tuning and finding what magnification can feel best. One setting can really impact is uniform soldier
aiming so the aim is consistent across all zooms. I prefer not to run Uniform soldier aiming
just because I have played PC when it didn’t exist and mentally it makes sense for when
I zoom it that it is slower. Also the slower sens in helps my dragshots. This is my own personal preference. Note dragshots can happen in all directions
from up, down, left and right. Practice each side and find the one you are
weakest at and practice. My weakest is left to right. Right to left feels the best for me. A recap and additional things that affect
dragshots are Muzzle Velocity as it will require you drag
further than the target or closer
Movement speed as you move in and out of cover and
Control Stat each gun has. The Krag has the best and the Kar98 has the
worst. Remember Comfort, consistency, and practice. I hope you found this guide helpful, if you

100 thoughts on “How to flickshot / dragshot on Battlefield 5 (how to aim bf5)

  1. I hope you found this guide helpful! If you guys have any questions based on how to flickshot, hit me up and I am more than happy to help! 🙂 (P.S Putting up the control stat video up on Saturday. Want to do a tad more research!)

  2. Great content as always!. Now it's time to practice those drag shots.
    I have a suggerence, what do you say about long shots with people in movement at 100, 150, 200m?. Like how much you have to aim infront of targets with different distances and rifles. You could do that in the practice range with friendly fire

  3. Are you not effectively using a micro flick, even when you do scope in directly on your target in order to adjust for a head shot?

  4. The test range has been getting a lot of hate and after trying it out myself as a veteran player with thousands of hours I think it has really good potential. I also think it wasn't finished but they had a timeline to keep so I'm interested to see what gets added

  5. Wow dude thanks a lot for your video! Definitely worth trying learning and practicing as the amount of guys camping in the BFV is literally increasing every bloody day. The only thing i really wanted to make clear, the main point in the mechanics of the drag shots is the thing WHEN should You zoom out from the scope? What is the precise moment of pressing the right mouse button? should You do it a millisecond, an inch, a yard away from the headshot You are trying to reach or what? In the most drag shot videos all around the Youtube this moment is somewhat different in various games. In CS i sometimes see people doing that flick shots almost without a zoomed scope, could You believe that?! My brain cannot get the concept of zoom-in and zoom-out timings used for a flick shot, i mean completely it just bugs me. Could You help me and probably a lot of people also, telling about that? Thanks in advance mate, a great video and surely my next log into the BFV would be a test range and a Gewehr m95 😉

  6. When to push or to fall back as a sniper?
    My playstyle is really aggressive. So, if I didn't see anyone I'll push right away. Most likely die 2-5 seconds after pushing 🙂

  7. Great video, I’ll be practicing 🙂 my biggest issue with sniping is that I don’t have a consistent “skill level”, i mean sometimes I’ll be hitting them headshots constantly and sometimes I can’t even get a prone guy with an mmg. :p

  8. This reminds me of Sgt Enigma's video on the same subject back in BF3…or maybe it was BC2. I believe Sgt Enigma talked about disabling Mouse Acceleration in Windows where the speed you move the mouse affects the distance the mouse goes. A newbie might not know that. In Windows 10 it's called "Enhance Pointer Precision" in the Mouse Properties>Pointer tab. You want to make sure that's unchecked to ensure consistency of your drags. My question is this- With bullet speed and drop being different rifle to rifle and scopes being different zooms changing the on screen geometry do you find its best to find 1 gun/scope combo and work at it or is it better to rotate through to build a general familiarity with the available rifles should you have to swap?

  9. Great content. I'm assuming your 360 is measured in hip-fire and not ADS, but you should probably say it just to be thorough.
    Question is, why use high DPI/lowest in-game sens, versus something like 400DPI with like an 8 in-game setting? Does the high DPI feel smoother compared to the same rotation with a lower DPI?

  10. Is 0% and 1800 DPI not very very low? I mean you would need an enormous mousepad and move the mouse up and reset all the time? Also, I play 1440p, does that impact it? I feel like my whole arm needs to move around the table? Are there any important settings in Win 10 to turn off? Also, do you change any of your values for zoom…. I see some players have their x6 scope at ~60% movement.

  11. you weakest is left to right cuz bf3 m16 recoil system when you move down and left 🙂 its not mental im sure we all have this weakness

  12. Most importantly, have a 144hz AND get that many damn fps😂 saying by experience I know many still play on 60hz and u can do very good with it too. But just give it a try with 144…day and night difference. Nice vid Dazs love your skill

  13. Sorry, I'm probably being dense but when are you actually clicking the mouse??? Being able to see your mouse whilst demonstrating would have been useful (for me at least)

  14. @ascend dazs Hi, is it wrong i play on monitor with only 60 hz , but i got 200 fps on full video settings ?
    And what about mouse sensitive for assault weapons its better to turn off sensitives in game and did dpi on mouse?

  15. Man, there is few snipers in bf who actually can challenge. I have 90% of kills a headshots with gewehr m.95. I miss snipers who can actually challenge me 😛

  16. Recon is the one class I am completely, and utterly useless at, the other classes I can get into the top 5 on the servers usually… I need to work on my precision, a whole lot…

    I used to be good at fps, and I always played with a mad high sensitivity despite all the advices against it… I used to be a top player in games like BF1942, UT2004, UT3, BF2, CoDMW 1 and 2 (I was accused of cheating loads of times because of my twitchy shooting)…
    Now though, I've become slow to react and sloppy (not sure if it because of getting older or because I'm suffering from chronic cluster headaches)… But dialing down the sense of my mouse helped me get at least somewhat better, but the sensitivity is still way above average… I just don't like moving the mouse a billion times to turn around and look around…

  17. Wtf.. This is why I suck at games. Not because I am bad but because too many people are too good. Lol

    I feel like the devs didn't design games for these type of play, but people just figure it out and end up being more precise than was intended.. Idk.

  18. This video should be shown to all the idiots out there that usually call cheats on every kind of shot that they cant perform themselves…

  19. Can you tell me how many centimeters I have to move the mouse on the mouse pad to zoom in and zoom out 360 degrees to know your zoom sense?
    And can you put subtitles on this video ??? I am Korean. I do not know English well, but I want to see your video now with automatic translation.

  20. NICE TUTORIAL, maybe would be cool to cover far distance shoots, where to aim and do we have to aim few steps ahead of the enemy target.

  21. What zoom do you have on your scope, what sniper rifle do you like the most and what mouse do you use? Also what FPS do you run at?

  22. My problem is I tend to get a bit anxious before the shot and jerk the mouse a little and it throws off my aim. I’ve tried to relax while aiming but sometimes I get frustrated and give up. Watching you play and using your guides has helped a ton though.

  23. Hey, thank you for your effort with these.
    One thing, did you fiddle with the uniform soldier aiming? Some said to set it to you monitors aspect ratio. E.g. 16:9 = 178, 21:9 = 233

  24. Nice I was going to create a tutorial myself but this was very good I always play like this https://youtu.be/yeaYzD6K6-A

  25. Even being a console guy, instant sub. Having some more console focused stuff would be great but still very informative ✌🏼👌🏼

  26. what speed / sensetivity do you use for windows? 1800DPI is a verry high speed on the windows mouse, while its slo ingame (0%) I thought it was good to have kinda the same sense on windows and in the game you are playing.

  27. Just a Logitech sponsored video, that's where the time was spend. who would even bother trying all the different models….

  28. With mouse recommendation I would of given rocketjumpninja a shout out as he has a lot of reviews and hel0 finding a mouse

  29. My logitech Game software doesnt overwrite the ingame mouse sensitivity?!?! PLEASE HELP. You have yours set to zero with 1800 dpi and I cant get mine to work. Have a G602

  30. This stuff is unreal. I always thought myself a Seasoned Battlefield player, then I see stuff like this and I die a little inside.

  31. Veio eu vou jogar 300 anos e não vou fazer isso qui vc faz vc e o melhor esnaipe qui já vi jogando bf não tem ingual 👍👍👍

  32. PC players freakin suck. Play with a controller and become good like that. Using a mouse is just way too easy

  33. Thank you it help newbies like me how to snipe better cuz I'm like "goddamn hacker" everytime I get outsnipe 😂

  34. So basically you use a fault in the game to hit people without actually shotting them. Like Jackfrags does all the time. It's lame and wants ending
