The first thing we have to mention is something that will literally get your body used to the game's mechanics, and that is playing the game consistently, preferably every day.

Next up, we would recommend you get better at the parts of your aim that you don't feel too confident about. For example, if you are good with primary rifles such as Vandal or Phantom, you might want to practice pistols or SMGs to ensure that you can provide a consistent performance regardless of the nature of the round. Additionally, by developing your skills with other weapons, you can gain a better understanding of their strengths and weaknesses, as well as learn how to play around different strategies. All in all, the idea is to make your muscle memory comfortable with using as many weapons as possible.
