Play to your strengths to win a game of prop hun in Black Ops Cold War

Both props and hunters have their own sets of advantages and disadvantages. The trick is to recognize them while playing the game to have an edge over the enemy.

Firstly, props have a significant advantage over hunters in terms of speed. Props can move faster, are much more agile, than the hunters. Therefore, if they can dodge the bullets and manage to run out of the POV of hunters, they get to live another day.

Secondly, choosing the right prop is necessary. Most of the time, smaller props hiding perfectly have a higher chance of winning. Also, a chaotic place is a perfect place to hide as there are a lot of suspects. However, every once in a while, hiding in plain sight can be the best strategy to win a game of prop hunt.

Thirdly, hunters have a range advantage with their weapons. Therefore, they should try to maintain their distance and look out for anomalies. As soon as hunters suspect a prop to be out of the ordinary, they can take a shot. Most of the time, this would help them avoid flash-bangs. However, this also gives props a higher chance to get away if hunters miss.

Finally, awareness always helps. Players need to be aware of the controls as they never know when it would be the perfect time to change or decoy. Therefore, they should be prepared at all times. Moreover, hunters should keep in mind that decoys have less health than props. Therefore, if they are able to destroy items quicker than usual, props might look similar to these.
