Call of Duty: Vanguard and CoD: Warzone are the latest entries in the series to introduce an automatic tactical sprint option. But, what exactly does the Call of Duty ATS setting do? Why is there controversy surrounding its use in professional esports competition? Here’s what to know about Call of Duty’s automated tactical sprint for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.
Call of Duty Automated Sprint Tactics Explainer (ATS)
Call of Duty’s Auto-Sprint Tactical (ATS) setting allows users to automatically run at full speed by moving forward. Enabling automatic tactical sprints in CoD: Vanguard and Warzone makes it much faster for users, giving them a potential advantage over other players.
While Activision doesn’t outright ban the use of ATS in the Call of Duty League, professional players have a “gentleman’s agreement” not to use this setting. This has caused controversy with some professionals facing accusations that, despite common practice, they still use the automated tactical sprint option.
However, for any non-pro player, there aren’t any consequences for enabling the CoD ATS setting in the game. In fact, it’s easy to recommend this option to anyone looking to improve their travel and reaction times in Call of Duty: Warzone, Vanguard, or another franchise entry.
Call of Duty: How to enable and use ATS in CoD
- Navigate to the in-game Settings menu.
- Switch to the Controller Options tab.
- Set the Auto Sprint setting to Automatic Tactical Sprint.
- Rematch, then transition during play to ATS.
