What is Tac-Stance in Modern Warfare 3?

Players can now breach and clear with the new Tactical Stance feature, a perfect middle ground between hip-fire and aiming down sights. When entering tight hallways and cramped rooms, toggle Tac-Stance to improve weapon performance and win the fight. Moreover, Tac-Stance is now enabled by default after sliding. Here are other functions of the Tac-Stance:

  • The operator unshoulders the weapon and holds it in a canted firing position.
  • Players can toggle in and out of Tac-Stance dynamically while aiming down sights.
  • It is designed to be used in aggressive, close-quarter combat situations.
  • By default, players fire in Tac-Stance while Sliding.

  • Now scroll down to Combat Behavior in the Gameplay section.
  • Click on the “Tactical ADS Activation” prompt.
  • Select Turn Off from the drop-down menu, and Tac-Stance will remain disabled in Modern Warfare 3.
