What exactly is Slide Canceling in Modern Warfare II:

Maintaining your maximum movement speed after sliding is referred to as slide cancelling. It does exactly what it says after a tactical dash, it literally cancels your slide so you can use it again, and again, and again. Normally, when a player slides, they lose some of their forward momenta since their character will go in a crouch position. However, players can maintain their speed by using this technique, which enables them to sprint even after using a slide.

How to slide cancel in Modern Warfare II with a controller:

  1. Press on your left analogue stick twice (double tap LS) to start sprinting.
  2. Press & hold crouch, Circle, or B (hold CIRCLE/B) to slide.
  3. When the crouching movement takes off, quickly tap [X/A] to return to a stationary position.
  4. Or you’ll need to press Circle/B to cancel the slide.
  5. Once the slide gets cancelled, you will need to press X or A (the jump button) to continue sprinting at full speed again.
  6. Repeat this process by double tapping [LS] to tactical sprint again.

How to slide cancel in Modern Warfare II with a mouse and keyboard:

  4. Immediately after that Press Space (jump button) to return to the stationary position.
  5. Finally, double tap Left Shift again to tactical sprint again which allows you to continue running at full speed.
