Precision, accuracy, and click-on time are needed for a fulfilling competitive game. Various gamers use different clicking techniques to excel in competition with others. While there are many techniques like butterfly clicking and jitter clicking, drag clicking is often used by most players.
Are you someone looking to know more about drag clicking? Here are some important things that will help you dig deeper into the drag clicking technique.
Drag Clicking, also known as Fazer clicking or tap clicking, is a mouse technique that makes people use forceful dragging of their fingers across the left or right buttons. This technique is proven to produce more mouse clicks than any other technique.
Drag clicking functions with the help of friction between the mouse and button and the player's finger. When you move using hand while clicking the mouse button, drag clicking is in action.
Thus, friction is produced, and gravity pulls the mouse downwards. So, when you drag click the button, the friction continuously presses the button as it bounces back when pressed time and again.
Drag clicking works when this entire process is repeated, which results in increased CPS up to as much as 32 CPS.
Want to Become Better at Drag Clicking? Here Are Some Tips
Drag clicking is probably one of the easiest techniques to follow than other techniques, and thus, it helps attain a higher CPS score.
We say this because the technique requires practice but doesn't need much pressure from the muscles as it is required in the other two techniques.
Also, the technique improves the clicks per second from 40 CPS to 100 CPS, an amazing score that cannot be achieved otherwise by other techniques.
So, how can you be better at drag clicking? Here are some tips that you can follow that will make you a professional drag-clicker within some time.
Dry Your Hands and Clean up the Mouse
The first thing to take care of while starting practicing for drag-clicking is to dry your hands and clean up your mouse surface; free it from dust and sweat.
This is because this dust and sweat might interfere with the friction that is produced between the fingers and the mouse button.
Set your hand in position
The next step is to set your hand in position to hold the mouse. You can hold your mouse as the way you've been doing it till now, or hold it this way
Use your little/ring finger to support the right side and thumb to grasp the left side of the mouse.
Set the middle finger of your hand on the right mouse button.
Set the index finger on the left mouse button.
Note: Ensure to keep both your fingers on the upper edge to provide your hand better control and grip over the mouse.
Press the mouse button downwards while ensuring to flick your wrist at a certain angle. Don't stop your fingers gliding over the button, and ensure that you do not press the button too hard.
This will make you hear a gliding sound; know that you're doing it right. Also, when you feel a slight vibration under your fingers over the mouse, it's quite normal, and everything is under control.
Additional Assistance: If you want to cross-check whether your drag-click is working or not, you can use any tool available online. These days, many tools are available that help you know your efficiency in the drag-clicking technique.
How to drag click on any mouse?
While some tools ask you to pay to get their assistance, but there are many which you can use for free. You don't even have to download them to check your performance.
Here is the method to drag click on any mouse:
You can't use the ALT+left button to drag click on your mouse, which is a Logitech G5, and you're using Windows XP.
The easiest way to do this is as follows (and the only way I know as of this writing):
Open Control Panel and double-click Mouse. Click the Buttons tab, and make sure your mouse's extra buttons are set to default.
Now open up Notepad (you can do this by hitting the Start button then typing Notepad), select the Edit menu then click Select all. Then press SHIFT+right-button on your mouse without releasing the left button. Hold it until you drag a couple of couple pixels. You will notice that it highlight the selected text in Notepad.
How to drag click on model o?
The first thing you want to do is disable the dragging of clicks on your view. You can do this by clicking the "Edit" button, then clicking 'disable control drag', which should be below 'steps'. This will turn off the standard click action, where you just plonk it down wherever. Doing so also disables double-clicking as well, so if you want to enable this back use the following method.
Now after doing this, there's a simple way of re-enabling control dragging for just one model object by changing its state with an assignment. You can't have both directly on the same view at once though, so each time you switch between different objects to edit them, you'll need to put one of the following lines into your userCode:
This will enable control dragging on model o. This should show up as a little green outline when it's dragged around. It works almost exactly like Apple Mail or any other OS X program that uses an OIScrollView 's standard dragging.
How to drag click without tape?
What you need:
- Duct tape (obviously)
- Dragger, the thing that will click and drag your cursor for you. I use a wireless mouse with a USB dongle attached to duct tape so it can hold down the left buttons. It needs to be wirelessly connected to your computer, or else you'll have to be careful not to tear the wires off of your mouse.
- Something to hold the dongle/mouse down
You can also use tape on a trackpad, but I personally prefer mice because they are way faster and less strenuous on my wrist.
How it works:
There's a ball inside of the mouse that rolls whenever you move it. This signal is sent to your computer and then interpreted as movement on your screen. When you take away the cover from the back of your mouse, there should be a tiny metal circle with metallic bristles surrounding it. The reason why I use a wireless mouse in particular is because it doesn't have a USB cord attached to the dongle, allowing me to free up my mouse pad.
The metal circle is connected to two different pieces of plastic, one that sends movement signals to the computer and then another that rotates around this little metal ball when you move your mouse. This second piece of plastic is what's called a 'press wheel'. It is what will be taped down, and when you press down hard enough with the duct tape it will click.
- Use a wireless mouse or trackpad
- Make sure that the dongle/trackpad wire isn't blocking anything vital to your ability to move around on your screen.
- Hold down the 'click wheel' with duct tape
- Make sure all your buttons work before you start working.
- Start by clicking and dragging very quickly and lightly, while holding down your 'dragger' with the duct tape. Keep on clicking and dragging like this until you get the hang of it. Once you're used to how it feels hold down your click wheel more firmly and start moving at a slower speed. Your cursor should follow.
- You can also tape down the left/right buttons of your mouse so that they double as 'scroll wheels' for scrolling up and down on websites, but you have to be extra careful with this because if you press them too hard they will double click instead of scroll. This is why I recommend just using a wireless trackpad because it is much more vulnerable to double-clicking.
Practice, Practice, and Practice
The last thing that you need to ensure is that you never leave practicing drag-clicking until you are satisfied with your performance. The more you practice, the more you master the technique.
Pro Tip: If you want to master the drag-click technique, make sure that you own a great mouse in hand. The mouse that provides a good grip and helps your fingers to be in the right position can help you be efficient enough in this technique.
