What's the best way to pace your DMR shots?

In the arena, specifically. You can shoot two quick shots without being affected by bloom, so should you try to do 2 quick shots, 2 quick shots, then the head shot? But the third shot isn’t affected by bloom that much, so is it better to do 3 shots, then 2 quick shots including the head shot?

Thank you.

Depends on the range and the circumstances. It is the choice to risk that third shot.

If you’re going to 3-shot, I say do it first, not last. Get the shields of the enemy down quickly to try and cause a mental game of them spamming all their shots.
3-shot the body, rest, then double-shot the head. Try to get them to think you’re spamming and they in turn may just do that.

Go watch the game. Wait for the SQ vs Instinct series. They know what they are doing. You can learn a lot from watching pro gameplay.

MLG is on LAN. because of this the videos there are not reliable because the game plays differently on LAN. you get away with a lot more spamming nonsense on LAN than you would on xbox live, so its a bad example.

an amazing cadence is 1 2 (damn near full spam, but not quite), 1 2 (same deal), headshot.

Count to 5 in your head and with every second take a shot

This is the best way to approach it.

Fire as fast as you can while keeping the entirety of the inner reticule on your opponent, every shot will land, because the spread always stays within the inner circle.
