What is Slide Cancel in Warzone?

Slide cancels in Warzone let you get around the map slightly faster. It is a bit faster than sprinting and the mechanic has been around in older Call of Duty games as well.

The mechanic has been around for quite some time in the Call of Duty franchise but the developers have toned down its effectiveness in Warzone.
