Improving Your Aim in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

When it comes to improving your game, while paddles a great difference, nothing improves your aim more than having the right thumbsticks.

Everyone has different hand sizes, thumb lengths, and preferences. That’s why SCUF thumbsticks are interchangeable: to match your unique preference of comfort and playstyle. 

Step One: Identify your Playstyle

Are you someone who likes to plan out a strategy and take their time to take out the enemy? Or do you prefer to take a more direct aggressive approach? Do you like shotguns or assault rifles more?

Whatever your preferred style, it’s a key part in what thumbsticks will suit you best. 

Step Two: Understanding Thumbstick Shape and Length

There are two parts to the thumbstick: its shape and its length. 

  • Concave Thumbsticks are designed for more movement control. 

  • Domed Thumbsticks are designed for more accuracy. 

  • Short Thumbsticks are designed for quicker movement speed.

  • Tall Thumbsticks are designed to have more angle to play with and more precise aiming. 

Step Three: Choosing Thumbsticks

For aggressive players, like SMG players, we recommend a short concave thumbstick on the left and a short domed thumbstick on the right. You’ll be quick to move and ready to quickly aim.

For defensive players, like rifle or sniper players, we recommend a short concave thumbstick on the left and a tall domed thumbstick on the right. You can still move quickly, but also be the most accurate when aiming. 

Try out different thumbstick types and combinations to find the ones that fit your playstyle, or change it up when you’re in the mood for something different.
