And recoil control is a skill! Eventually you'll learn to control your recoil when standing well enough that going prone won't offer any benefit except concealment behind low cover.

No, there is not. Crouching and going prone will reduce scope sway. Though, a skilled sniper doesn't need to worry about sway because they don't spend more than a fraction of a second looking through the scope.

noob here: how do you reduce the machine gun recoil? I know you "decouch" or whatever the word is, by pressing MOUSE2 secondary fire [default] but it does nothing! THe thing is, secondary fire works on all the other classes, but on the machine gun holding guy, it doesn't!

You right-click when prone or when at an object that is waist-high to deploy the bipod.

Prone means to lie down. The default key is Z.

The CoF (cone of fire) refers to the accuracy of the weapons. This is modeled by a cone originating at the muzzle of your weapon. Usually CoF is a reference to the cone of fire being too large; i.e. the weapon is too inaccurate.

make sure when you are using k98 rifle u have cover(wall,fence,sandbag), so u can recharge your gun safely. this is most in portent in close range combat.

When sniping, if an enemy gets within 5 feet or so of you, you're better off trying to shoot them with the rifle without scoping than using the pistol. No scope shots are usually accurate within an area just above your crosshair.

no scopes fire in a center weighted cone around your crosshair (even though its invisible) just like any other weapon. There is no above or below or to the side.

No difference really except some added content in the beta.

When we talk about COF fix we don't mean a change in the size of the cone of fire...but rather a switch to one that is center-weighted. in default dod:s before the update your shot had a equal chance of landing anywhere within "the cone" ( a uniform distribution). since the update shots are center-weighted meaning most land towards the center of the cone (sort of like a bell curve if you will centered around the center of the cone). This makes shooting more consistent with less wtf moments in general...and was the thing most folks wanted in this update more than anything.

What content? When I purchased DoDS, I was asked if I want to install normal DoDS (which was already preloaded) or/and DoDS beta (which weighted 1500 MB). I chose the normal one, because I read on the forum that beta is over. Did I miss something?
