Mike Jones, a widely known YouTuber, dropped an interesting upload recently. The creator tried every famous shooting trick from FPS giants with actual firearms. The video is titled “We Test Video Game Trick Shots With Real Guns.” An X account shared a short glimpse of the video on the platform. 

Most of you would find these moves strikingly similar to your favorites from Call of Duty. It goes without saying that CoD, as a franchise, has introduced gamers to a lot of innovations in movements. For instance, not every FPS game uses ADS. But it was CoD that popularized the mechanic.

The YouTuber tried 5 major game moves in the video: 

  • Drop Shot Technique
  • Dolphin Dive 
  • Peer’s Advantage 
  • Dual Berettas Test 
  • The 360 No Scope Shot 

Now, this obviously sparks an interesting question. 

Are the movements applicable in reality? 

Unfortunately, the answer is no! We thought it would be really fun if trained shooters attempted these shots and it was something. My favorite one was the Dolphin Dive. Everything else was complete trash. That doesn’t work in real life, that’s not how it works,” Jones stated during the conclusion of the video.

CoD is an arcade shooter at its core. Majority of the mechanics and in-game equipment are far from realistic and the pace is generally much faster than most shooters. At its core, CoD is an arena shooter dressed up in military clothing. There is some depth to tactics, but it’s a warm-blooded shooter in that mechanical ability is the dominant factor to success.
