When I first started playing this game, I was an absolute bot. Dying off the rip almost every match really motivated me to get better, because that's how I have fun.
Fast forward to today and I've been getting pretty regular 9+ kill games with 1500-2000+ dmg. I dont know if I've hit a wall, because I still practice all the time, yet also seem to die in really questionable situations.
I've memorized recoil pattern and compensation with every weapon and upgraded my setup over time to give me the best quality available. Monitor, Xbox One X for better framerate and clearer graphics, and a wired connection. Somehow, I feel as if 1/200 games really feels like it should. In those rare instances, all my shots register and I feel unstoppable. The rest of the time, my opponents skip across the screen when I get into a gunfight and despite feeling like I have solid tracking, I die in an instant.
The last thing I can think of upgrading is my actual internet service. Currently, I have a crowded home network with multiple devices, and am thinking of getting an isolated network dedicated to gaming, for myself. Not sure if this is the final answer, but console streamers I watch seem to have very smooth gunfight situations. So that's all I can think of that will get me there.
Let me know if that's the answer to my problems, or if it's something else.
