Strafing basically means moving sideways in the game. That means moving left or right by pressing the directional buttons in the console and A/D when using a keyboard simultaneously will do a strafe movement. So, taking out opponents while moving left or right in the multiplayer modes will count them as strafing kills. You can also do strafing kills from the hip or while in ADS (Aim Down Sight) mode while in a match.

Playing in smaller maps is useful for getting strafing kills like Team Deathmatch, Free For All, and Control, as the players are in the near vicinity of each other the whole time. Mastering these modes can help you get strafing kills very easily.

Since strafing requires you to be very quick, it’s important to use rapid-fire weapons like Assault Rifles and SMGs. You need the best of these classes to make sure you get proper strafing kills on target. Additionally, with the addition of various gear and equipment in the game, some of them affect certain aspects of your movement.
