Question RE: Jumpshots

We've all seen them, the dudes that go around and jump shot every single kill. Well, I tried to do that. I hate the claw grip. Don't really want to buy a scuf controller. So my question is this: How do you pull of a jump shot, consistently? If I jump, it's to get through a window, or a hole in the wall. I can pop off one round, but it's usually nowhere near the guy I'm aiming at.

I get dropshotting, especially on tactical way That's pretty easy, just push the right stick in. But, what am I missing? Is the jump shot only truly feasible with the help of a scuf controller?

Actually it's from Quake, it's called strafe jumping. Why does everyone assume it came from Halo? Do you even game?

A lot of people aren't old enough to have played the old arena shooters.  Like I was told ages ago by an IW fanboy that Kill Confirmed was totally original, which was wrong.  All I know is that I got a funky emblem for killing a jump shotter in mid-air, skeet shooter or something.

Not exactly the same thing. The true Halo jump was a glitch used to toss you high in to the air to get to places nor normally available through normal means. What they are doing is bunny hopping. Used to through off the aim of players while taking advantage of the aim mechanics allowing the gun to free pull toward the enemy for an easy kill.

mean crouch-jumping? that was a bit different from just jumpin around.  Later referred to as the "ghandi-hop" for said players prowess(and overuse)

ideas the same though, make yourself a hard kill.

With everyone so much better nowadays(playin on max sens, able to correct instantly) and more recently, due to it's overuse, able to correct pretty effectively against dropshots.  The only place you're left to go is up...lol.

It's way more effective than dropping ever was anyway.  Seems to be(my experience) impossible, without a relatively high sensitivity(70% about)

Who would whine about me countering you, prone, preaiming the door you know i'ma enter(for days!!)...That doesn't take skill, and if I know you're there, i'ma come flyin through that doorway.

Oh and I don't claw n I'm too broke to re-up a 120$ controller every 6months, but I can jumpshot just fine.

still think bumperjumper tacky would be dooooope, with the ability to drop all nades...they should've looked into different control schemes last game but whatev's.

It's pretty much like strafe jumping but I do my turn mid air.

I have never seen it done properly in cod as the player could never jump as high as those in halo or quake.I would see them jump and they would get wiped out as it was one or the other, unless they were good. (I beat most jumpy, shooty players) but with the introduction of scuffs I find them to be a bit more of a pain.

The other is to practice more with the Claw Grip!

I don't have a scuff or play with claw and I can jump shot whenever I so desire. I find it to be most viable though when you are using a shotgun or smg to hip fire the jump shot. When you are trying to jump shot without a scuff/claw, you will rely heavily on enemy anticipation. You won't have the flexibility to do it mid gun fight as you kind of have to prep for it before hand to switch quickly. You pretty much have to keep those crosshairs centered on where you anticipate the enemy will be and then jump while firing, engage the ADS and if they aren't dead by this time adjust your aim while continuing to fire all the way to the ground. I am not bragging or anything but it's totally doable without scuff/claw. It's just much harder and require tremendous hand speed/hand eye coordination/finger dexterity. Some people have thought I had a scuff before but I don't.

Keep in mind that jump shotting may not always be the best choice. Flinching only goes one way, up. So as you are shooting them, you are causing their aim to actually be more on target with hitting you and may find yourself a ragdoll in mid air due to your own tactic.
