Someone else posted more detailed instructions in one of the recent tap strafe threads.

And yet no one shared any settings or a video.
Im not sure what a tap strafe is but to me it sounds like its either some super secret tech that no one wants to share, or these topics are just baits so people join in and help realizing such a tap strafe setup.

It's been around for a while, mostly used by high level players.

Found it -

Create a Subprofile
Set it to trigger with "Wheel Up"
Under that subprofile, set "JUMP" to "Wheel Up"
also set "Forward" to "Wheel Up"
Set that subprofile with a 2ms trigger delay AND a 2ms release delay (this is important)
Under that subprofile, make sure your typical "Jump" and "Forward" buttons aren't mapped. (ie. nothing for Spacebar Nor W"

Tap strafing requires you you to be in sync with the game. Set your Polling Rate to 125hz on Xbox and 240hz on Playstation and set your Sync to "Off"
Complete tap strafing is NOT possible without OFF sync and the correct polling rate. I've tested it for hours.
Also you need the fastest aim speed cap which includes turning off aim assist but that's a contentious topic but Aim Assist is for cheaters, period.


*Unlike PC, Don't let go of "W" when spinning the wheel. On PC you want to let go of W but with the XIM it adds a W press

There is no 240Hz polling rate, that should be 250Hz Response Rate.

Tap strafe is not possible on consoles as far as I know. It is possible on PC version of the game even if you're using a controller, but on consoles its missing a mechanic called "lurch" which is only present in the PC version of the game.
