The most thrilling part of the battlefield is getting that perfect headshot, but is it possible every time to land that ideal aim?

Even the best aimers in the game do not land headshots every time.

Thanks to the recoil and bloom, it prevents players from landing a clear headshot in sustained fire.

So, how can you improve your aim and increase kills?

Well, instead of doing for the head next time, try to aim at the upper body to get a definite shot.

It will make it much easier for you to take down your enemy, especially when they are moving.

Also, even if recoil messes up your aim, the bullet will not hit the void – you will cause damage even if it is not a one-shot kill.

2. Avoid continuous firing

Yes, with an automatic weapon, it is fun to fire successive shots that will make you feel like Rambo with this gaming style, but it isn’t a good idea to go for in Battlefield 2042 until and unless you are involved in close combat.

In Battlefield 2042, if you do not want to have a worse aim than Storm Troopers, it is best to stay away from continuous firing.

We suggest you stick to shooting in short volleys to avoid recoil and missing the target entirely.

Shoot only a quick burst of fire to avoid wasting your ammo unnecessarily.

3. Understand the recoil of your weapon

If you are tired of hitting into the void every time you go for the headshot due to the recoil of your gun, it is best to study the timing of the recoil first.

Every weapon has recoil, but you do not have to surrender to a firefight due to it.

When gamers fire continuously, the recoil of their weapon leads to missing the shot on their opponents.

You can avoid this from happening with a simple trick.

Each weapon has a particular direction in which recoil pulls the bullet – study that.

See where your weapon points while recoiling, and then aim in the exact opposite direction of it to make some adjustments to your shot.

4. Fire less while moving

Do not fire when you are on the move!

Even in Battlefield 2042, you will experience that your guns get less precise when you keep on firing while moving.

If you want to improve your aim, it is best to keep moving and only slow down for a brief moment every now and then and shoot at your opponent when you are standing still.
