Call of Duty Mobile has been around now for years since its release back in October 2019. The game gained major attention after the Government ban on the Mobile game PUBG as distraught players searched for a new source of action. Fortunately, Activision’s Call of Duty Mobile has been able to fill the void and has possibly made players and fans around the world fall in love with the game more than ever.
In a short period of time, the game has evolved to become one of the most played and downloaded games on the Play Store and App Store. The realistic graphics, fast-paced gameplay have really appealed to the player across the world, especially the Gunsmith feature adopted from COD Black OPS 3 and Modern Warfare.
The Gunsmith feature COD Mobile is what makes it unique. It offers players the ability to adjust, build, and display their weapons and counter the Hit Flinch in the game. Today in this article, we will discuss what is Hit Flinch and its importance and benefits.
What is Hit Flinch in Call of Duty Mobile –
Knowing the maps and your surroundings and coordinating with your teammates and opting for the best suitable attachments for your weapon are what will help you achieve victory in the game.
Since the introduction of an array of attachments in the Gunsmith feature, it has become almost impossible to hit your targets at the aimed areas if you don’t equip the suitable attachments.
‘Hit Flinch’ has been a controversial mechanic in Call of Duty Titles as it causes the aim to be thrown off track while taking damage. Effectively, it causes the cross-hair to move upwards or sideways when being hit by enemy players.
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War is the first title in the list of titles to convert Flinch into a feedback mechanism, according to Treyarch. This feedback mechanism is introduced to help players understand that they are taking damage, without affecting the aim position of your weapon, the weapon will move with your screen to stay on the aimed target.
Importance & Benefits of Hit Flinch in COD Mobile
But what does this mean for Flinch in COD Mobile? In COD Mobile, the Gunsmith attachments play an important role in the Flinch effect on the players. For example, when the OWC Skeleton Stock is equipped, ADS Speed and Movement Speed increase. This means that you will now be able to aim down sight faster than before and also maneuver around the map, holding the gun, more quickly.
By equipping these attachments, it decreases the Flinch stability, meaning that there will be a greater impact on your aim when being fired upon by enemy players.
Players can make these adjustments by equipping the right attachments and most important the Toughness Perk. The Toughness perk is one of the best perks in COD Mobile. It brings down 60% of flinching when being shot at while allowing you to maintain a steady aim while shooting back at the enemy. The Toughness perk is useful in all game modes of Call of Duty Mobile.
It is always advisable for new players who are trying the game for the first time should experiment more with the attachments and what works best for them.
Each attachment comes with its pros and cons, so players can experiment more in the training mode to get a feel of the performance the attachment offers, depending on their playstyle and their approach to the battlefield.
Players can decrease their flinching by using attachments like MIP Strike Stock, Granulated Grip Tape, and Operator Foregrip, although, the flinching majorly depends on the type of Stock attached.
Call of Duty Mobile has a huge arsenal of weapons. Use the gunsmith feature to the full and do not doubt the use of any aspect of the attachments, as we say that there are no wrong attachments, whether Laser Sight, Optic, Barrel, Muzzle, Rear grip, Stock & Perks. So, experiment with all of them and take account of the flinch stability, accuracy, mobility, etc. and settle for the weapon which you find to be most comfortable to use.
In conclusion, understanding the features of the game and attachments and their effect on your playing style will help you further to enhance your playing style and effectiveness and win you more battles in the game.
