Simple. Standing still or strafing slowly makes you easier to shoot. Being easier to shoot makes you more likely to die.

Makes you have the speed while ADS of a smg. (It also makes your hitbox move erratically while strafing)

Does it also help your ADS movement speed? Not the speed of the character, the speed of the reticle itself, is what I'm asking.

No. That is what the Quickdraw Handle does.

No, I'm not talking about the speed to zoom in, I'm talking about the movement speed of the reticle itself while you're ADS'd. Moving the reticle from target to target across your screen, basically.

Or is that purely handled by the sensitivity setting, and I just went full retard.

It speeds up strafe speed. In other words, it effects what you do with your left stick while aiming down sight. It doesn't influence anything you do with your right stick.
