As you might have gathered from the name, if you come across a challenge that instructs you to get ADS kills, you’ll simply need to kill an enemy while aiming down your sights. This can be done with any kind of weapon and any kind of sights. However, some will obviously be easier than others depending on your game mode and map.

If you prefer to hang back from the crowd, you might want to use a sniper scope. However, if you prefer to be up close and in the middle of fast-paced action, then you might want to put your reticle of choice on a shotgun and get an ADS kill that way. The choice is yours.

The only thing to note with getting ADS kills in Modern Warfare is that you’ll need to complete the full kill while aiming down sights. If you’re scoped in on someone and land a hit, but then kill them without looking down your sight, it’s not going to count. So make sure that you’re locked in with your sight for the whole kill and you’ll be good to go.
