ADS Accuracy Delay

Call of Duty Black Ops II Xbox 360

ADS Accuracy Delay

So I came across this video on youtube.  I've noticed this while playing and I think maybe not everyone really knows that this happens with this game. Pretty much a good majority of people will start shooting right as they see an enemy all the while ADS'ing.  But sometimes they feel their first few bullets aren't hitting.  Well this video explains that.

I never use it because I noticed there is no difference

I always knew about this ADS delay, I remember notcing back in the Black ops days, (AKA back then when I didn't give a damn about MP) so it's nothing new to me. And in pratice it doesn't do much to hamper your accuracy either.

You know I kind made this thread for most of the people that make those WTF clips saying, "I SHOT FIRST! How did I miss!?"  I wonder if they didn't know about this?

Basically if you use Dexterity, Laser, and Quickdraw there is a drastic improvement in the delay, somewhere around .5 seconds.

Still long enough to make your first couple bullets steer off center if you are running then start to ADS.  I see this happen alot whenever I lose a gun battle my first bullets never hit because it still thinks I'm hip firing for that split second.

Good post. This could help explain a few things for those who didn't know.

Unless no one cares enough.  Probably think this doesn't happen to them and it's all lag comp or something.

It's been here since CoD4.

In fact -- this ruined a whole lot of my Mile High Club attempts.

You don't have ANY delay if you stop walking and stand still.

Yea he mentions that in the video.  But most people are usually always running and gunning so they don't stop they try to shoot as they slow down running.
