In the previous Call of Duty games, like Warzone, a player would easily Slide Cancel by sliding while being in Tac Sprint mode and then pressing the crouch button. But players must rely on this new trick since the manoeuvre got officially removed and is not present in the re-release of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2.
