Shooting Drills for The Shooting Range: How to Improve Your Play

The Shooting Range?

Before you can do any of these drills, you need to access the shooting range! This can be done through the debug menu in game. As of version 2.0.3, the shooting range contains all 9 guns currently available, a timed drilling area, and a traditional paper-target range.

To access it, you need to:

  • Pause the game.
  • Press ctrl+f12 to turn on the debug menu.
  • Click the button labeled File at the very top right of your screen.
  • Click shooting range.

Okay, but What Drills Do You Do?

Drills that I personally find generally relevant to Receiver 2 gameplay include:

  • Shooting a target, starting from a holstered stance.
  • Target Acquisition.
  • Reloading drills.
  • General accuracy training.
  • Jam clearing.

These drills should be pretty self explanatory, but in case you’d like a step-by-step:

Shooting a target from a holster:

  • Start with your gun in the way you usually have it holstered. If you keep the safety on or the slide locked back, whatever floats your boat.
  • Face your target, and get ready.
  • When ready, draw your gun and if needed, get it in a ready to fire state.
  • Fire 3 shots as fast as you can, as close to the center of your target as you can.
  • Optional: Clear the weapon.

Target Acquisition

  • Start with your weapon how you usually have it during normal gameplay. For me, I usually keep it with a round chambered and safety off. Optionally, you can start with your gun in various states (no round chambered, safety on/off, etc)
  • Spin your camera in a random direction with your eyes closed.
  • Imagine a drone beep, open your eyes, and find the target.
  • Fire 3 shots as fast as you can, as close to the center of your target as you can.
  • Optional: Clear the weapon.

Reloading Drills:

  • The most straight forward drill, start with your weapon aimed at the target and ready to fire.
  • Fire until empty, or don’t, I don’t care.
  • Remove the magazine and either swap to a new mag or load more rounds into your current magazine.
  • Repeat.

General Accuracy training:

  • Just fire at the target as close to the center as you can, as fast as you can. If you like, feel free to turn on the infinite ammo debug mode to streamline things.

Jam Clearing:

  • Using the debug menu, force your gun to jam in whichever way you feel appropriate. Make sure to select the “just once” option so your gun doesn’t jam again.
  • Tap.
  • Rack.
  • Bang.
  • No bang? Diagnose, and resolve.

Drilling Area, or Shooting Range?

All of the above drills can be done in either the drilling area or the shooting range, although the drilling range works slightly differently than the shooting range. At the drilling area, shooting a target begins a target sequence with a timer that only stops once all the popped up targets have been shot. Both are great options for drilling, and each has it’s own advantages and disadvantages for drilling.
