Settings tricks are constantly being worked through for games like Call of Duty Warzone Pacific, and recently, COD streamer JGOD gave an incredibly detailed guide on how to truly master aiming and tracking in the battle royale. Not only does he give players tips on better settings for the aim on the sticks, but he goes in-depth on the fundamentals of gameplay as well.
Keyboard and mouse users should note now that most of the video is geared towards controller players. The fundamentals will still apply, but JGOD explains why both peripherals cannot use the exact same movements or methods to better their aiming and tracking.
JGOD improve Warzone Pacific aiming and tracking
The video begins with JGOD outlining the settings he uses to improve his aiming and tracking in Warzone Pacific. The tricks to controlling recoil and staying accurate will be detailed first.
According to JGOD, you must always learn the recoil pattern of the weapon you are using before doing anything else. Stand at mid-range with something like an assault rifle and simply hold the trigger while aimed at a wall. The pattern on the wall is the main recoil pattern.
If the pattern goes up and to the left, then controller players can bring the stick slightly down and to the right. JGOD calls this the zero, and when players find their recoil zero, they can make any further adjustments they need from there.

This allows weapons that have semi-predictable recoil to stay on target far better, but it requires patience and stick-control to learn. His second tip is to make sure that controller players utilize their rotational pulls from aim assist.
When aiming at a target, staying aware of the pull and keeping inputs in line with the moving target will assist in better stick function and a stickier target. The mix of the rotational assist and the recoil control is the key to aiming in Warzone Pacific.
JGOD explains aim settings in Warzone Pacific
Starting off with buttons and stick layout, JGOD listed the typical options but noted they are subjective and really come down to the controller. What is far more important are the stick settings and aim assist settings.
The dead zone comes first and should be set as low as possible in Warzone Pacific. JGOD recommends loading into the game and bringing the dead zone all the way to zero. If there is stick drift, keep increasing until it is gone and then leave that setting.
Next is the aim response curve, and for that, you'll want Dynamic. It offers up the most control of the right stick and is the best option for aim and tracking in terms of settings.
Aim assist itself is last and all controller players should stick to the standard. This is because of the rotational assists that were outlined in the video and are only possible with the standard setting.
That's all there is to know about improving aiming and tracking in Warzone Pacific. We'd like to thank JGOD for a great explanation of controller mechanics. Consider subscribing to his channel for more gun guides, you could also check out our dedicated Call of Duty section as well.
