Focus appears as a Weapon Proficiency in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Call of Duty: Vanguard, a Resistance Perk in Call of Duty: Ghosts, a Gun Perk in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, a weapon perk in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, a Bonus Perk in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, and a Glove in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3[]

Focus is a Weapon Proficiency that is featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. It reduces flinch by 50 percent when damaged. It is unlocked at weapon level 15 for all weapons.

The proficiency is best used on longer-range weaponry, as the effect of flinch is not as problematic for close-range performance compared to ranged performance. Because of this, shotguns see little use for the proficiency, and SMGs don't see much use for it either. To the contrary, the proficiency is very useful on assault rifles and sniper rifles, especially sniper rifles since any disruption of aim can be incredibly worrying for a sniper.

Call of Duty: Ghosts[]

Focus appears as a Resistance perk in Call of Duty: Ghosts. It reduces flinch when shot and reduces idle sway while aiming down sights. It is unlocked normally at level 30 or can be unlocked earlier by purchasing it for six Squad Points. It is unlocked by default with the "Marksman" soldier option.

The amount of flinch reduction received is significant, and the effect Focus has on idle sway is very useful, considering almost every weapon in the game has notable amounts of idle sway.

This perk has a great impact on Sniper Rifles, as those weapons require the most precision and have the most idle sway. By using Focus, the player is less likely to have their aim thrown off during heated gunfights, and helps them maintain accuracy and quite possibly save the player's life.

As such, Focus is one of the more common perks seen in Multiplayer. Most players using medium range or longer loadouts commonly make use of Focus. Not only will Focus allow users to be more accurate while under fire, but Focus will make the user's weapons more accurate thanks to idle sway reduction.
