Call of Duty League pro Shotzzy has already discovered a slide cancellation technique in the Modern Warfare 2 beta after it was deemed “impossible” by others in the community for weeks.
The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 open beta is available in early access, and OpTic Shottzy (known for discovering unintended movement capabilities) has already blown the doors open in the next game.
One of the biggest points of discussion surrounding this first beta period was whether the controversial slide-cancell movement technique would be in place.
According to the young pro, it has returned to the game, but it comes with a catch.
Shotzzy finds slide cancellation in MW2
Shotzzy Posted a short clip from his stream to Twitter with the caption “How to cancel slide.”
While the clip is extremely fast, it showed the pro player sprinting forward with his secondary weapon, sliding, aiming down, then switching to his primary weapon and firing.
The video quickly gained traction on Twitter, with numerous professional players and influencers in the Call of Duty community commenting on the discovery.
100 Thieves co-owner and streamer Jack “CouRage” Dunlop jokingly replied, “I hate you lol.”
Bro I told you to keep this a secret for a while!!!! Aper Alsoologist

Fellow OpTic player BobbyPoff responded to Shotzzy’s tweet, saying, “Bro, I told you to keep this a secret for a while!”
Of course, not everyone was happy to see Shotzzy’s discovery, with many Call of Duty fans in the comments complaining that motion technology was back in the game.
“Why do COD nerds have to make things awkward?” Twitter user joeisverycool_ asked. Another user replied, “Just stop, canceling slides is the worst.”
Of course, canceling slides isn’t the only controversial movement technique found in MW2. There’s a new “overwhelmed” version of snakes that has also sparked a huge community response
Yet this is exactly why online shooters host open betas in the first place: to patch or tweak accidental exploits before they launch.
There’s still time before Modern Warfare 2’s beta is over and before the game’s launch on October 28, 2022, so Infinity Ward could very well sort things out. For now, players will just have to wait and see.
