First and foremost is you have to practice, practice and practice. Nobody on this earth becomes pro overnight practice makes perfect. You have to play a lot lose a lot until you found your way to win. By practicing the game becomes natural and easier most of the pro players out there spend almost ten thousand hours of playing and still practices. It is an ever-evolving game so nobody gets it perfect.
Play deathmatch mode. By playing this mode you will not have to be worried on putting your rank on the line this will help you with your aim because the map will most likely to be played by 30 players killing each other. This is the best way to practice your aim and movement where you practice the different guns with the different and unique mechanics each and every gun have. And since every time you die you respawn in a short period of time, this will allow you to get more experience by playing non-stop gun fighting.
