View Full Version : Weapon recoil

No idea where to put this, but I might as well ask it here.
This game is a great laugh - far better than a lot of FPS I've played on. However, isn't the recoil a bit over the top? I can't hit anything. Of course, I'm getting hit all the time - meaning there must be something I am missing.
Can anyone help out here?

The only thing your missing is practice. The game isn't particularly rewarding to new players from the start (this is not a crappy console port designed for the casual gamer to pick up and play). Practice and get better - it can be very rewarding.

Yeah, the recoil in this game is far more than most players are usually used to, but its works well and you adjust fairly quickly. As spacedkadet pointed out, just practice practice and practice. If you want to get used to recoil try the support class. Work on firing in a crouch and firing in bursts. If you want, load up a map or find an empty server and find a crate or something. Pretend the crate is a person and work on hitting it consistently while moving and at different ranges. From there move onto people, keeping in mind all the other factors like movement and cover when practicing on a server.
Any way you play you'll end up pulling your mouse down (depending on your sensitivity, mine's at 4.3) a lot, and that's a good thing. The recoil may seem absurd to you now, but eventually you'll get used to it. Its part of what makes this game what it is.
