Target Switching is the aiming skill of flicking between targets and then tracking the target for a short amount of time whilst you destroy it. This is a crucial skill in FPS games where you encounter multiple enemies especially at close range. Training this skill is great for spray transfer.
Target Switching is a combination of Click Timing and Tracking, however there is a little more to it. The transition between flicking to the target and then tracking it’s movement is a critical part of the skill. Static target switching requires an immediate stop and dynamic requires an immediate direction change. Over-flicking or poor direction change will seriously impair your performance.
Target Switching is split between Stability and Evasive.
Stability means static, slow or predictable movement patterns. These are generally ‘easier’ which means the focus is on fast and accurate switches.
- New players can learn the basics of Target Switching in a controlled environment
- Increase speed and accuracy of switches
Evasive drills have faster or more unpredictable movement patterns so these really test your reactive tracking skills after you’ve mastered the basics.
- Overload your training so when you encounter a ‘normal’ switching situation you’ll be find it easy
- Practice the speed of your mouse direction changes
