|Meaning||Aiming down sight|
ADS is a video game acronym that means "aiming down sight". It is often used in Call of Duty and other FPS games in which players change into sight mode with their weapons to increase shooting accuracy--so, in effect, they are aiming down the sight of their guns.
Aiming down sight is the opposite of "shooting from the hip", which is much less accurate but quicker and easier to do. Shooting from the hip, or "hip fire", is usually done with semi-automatic weapons and shotguns that have a large area of spray.
"I find that I play worse with ADS than hip fire."
