How to Lean and Slide in COD Ghosts

There are lots of additions to Call of Duty Ghosts that you may have not realized, and we’re going to try to help you figure them all out.

This quick guide will be explaining how to lean and slide in Ghosts for each of the different consoles.

How to Slide

This is a great method to master for jumping from one area to another quickly without being an easy target for other players.

Most players aim for either a head or a chest shot, and when you drop down into a slide they will effectively miss both your head and and your chest area.

You could also utilize the slide when running towards a domination point or to capture a flag.

Another useful tip is sliding down into prone position to quickly grab cover where crouching wouldn’t completely cover you from the enemy.

We recommend that you use the slide and make it into something you do by second nature, where you don’t have to think about it, but you just do it. It will come in handy and have a noticeable increase to your kill / death ratio.

  1. Start sprinting using the SHIFT key.
  2. While sprinting, hold the crouch (C)  and the prone (CTRL) keys down at the same time.
  3. To slide straight into prone position you would continue to hold down the prone button.

Playstation 4 (PS4) / Playstation 3 (PS3)

  1. Start sprinting using the bottom left thumb stick.
  2. While sprinting hold down the Crouch button (O)
  3. Keep holding the Crouch button to go into prone position.

How to Lean

Leaning in Call of Duty Ghosts is extremely important for keeping cover while maintaining an offensive style fight. You can effectively lean around any wall, door, window, vehicle and anything else standing in between you and your opponent.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Approach a corner or the edge of a wall.
  2. Once you’re near the the opening you will see a yellow arrow appear on your crosshair
  3. Aim down your sights to lean around the corner.

You have to be close enough to the corner to be able to see around it.

Once you’re in lean position, you still have some leeway to be able to move around and get closer or further from cover.

Remember that the further away from the corner you are the more the enemy will be able to see your body and shoot back, so try to lean around and stay as close to the edge as possible.

An interesting thing to add, you can actually slide into a lean. It may take some getting used to, but once you get used to it, it can really come in handy in specific situations.
