A very casual guide for casual players, just some quick tips on how you could potentially up your game in fps titles such as Blacklight Retribution, Tribes Ascend, Counter Strike.
I studied video game design at Full Sail University and I work as a professional video game journalist. I tend to get into most if not every alpha/beta so do a request on a video and I will be sure to follow through if you post in the comments. The games I am playing right now include:
League of Legends
Guild Wars 2
Team Fortress 2
and many many more!
I own and manage the Gaming YouTube Community on Google +, it's a place where people can share their own gaming uploads and get subs/views and make friends!
Thanks for watching,
the game you are playing has little to know recoil, that is not how battlefield works :/
in battlefield it's better to have higher sensitivity.
guys, everyone is good at some point in the sensitivity, you just have to keep adjusting until you get the best one.
for me, the sensitivity in BF starts at 40, and i was getting my ass kicked my K/D was basically 2/15 every round.
but when i adjusted it to 60, the K/D is now 1.22 that basically means i get at least 4 more kills than deaths every
round,usually its twenty or thirty something kills and about 10 deaths.
its not magic just buy a private aimbot likehelios x22 configure the cheat so good no one says your an aimbotter like aimkey nospread norecoil turned of put the range of the aimbot on 20 degrees or 10 not 180 360 degress auto switch mode off so it doesend lock to another target there you go you magicly being better. also turn of walhack rader hack
I think technically the "healthy" way to play is with wrist hovering but in regards to performance, literally just do what is comfortable for you. I could say, lower your sensitivity and play with your full arm, but not every skilled player plays like that and it depends on the playstyle of the game you are playing, and the role you are filling in that game as well.
DPI is actually a misconception that I fell for when I made this video. Essentially, DPI to a point doesn't matter anymore but you should still get a gaming mouse that has a very accurate laser. They normally will advertise as "HIGH DPI" but technically its not DPI but CPI I think. Here is a video where it is explained a bit better. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAEb9a-dltk
Disagree on the you're gonna need a mouse with 'really high DPI'.
High DPI is nothing more than a marketing gimmick. My mouse goes up to 2500 DPI, but I choose to play on 400 since a higher DPI doesn't accomplish anything.
Maybe I should try that. Been playing Siege at 800 DPI with a Roccat Tyon (Sales boasts 8200 DPI optic). I've read somewhere, I don't recall, that lower DPI and higher in-game sensitivity is the way to go.
Ah don't worry. This was an excellent video, other the DPI part though.
Most pros play on 400 DPI. Personally I play on 400 DPI and use 2.5 ingame sensitivity in CS:GO and CS:S. It works amazing since you can always make the micro movements without having to focus too hard. As for the long shots, it's great when you have a pad as loarge as the QCK+ where you got loads of room to move your arm.
you'll wear on the gliding pads of your mouse if you don't use one. Also, different pads offer different levels of resistance. Good pads also allow the laser to work best versus somewhat reflective surfaces like hard plastic or wood.
well that's true... I only use explosive weapons so I don't have to chain ;-)
You could try to up the sensitivity after every mach a little bit :) so you can make your movement faster step by step.
(sry for bad English)
PS : I am searching for some more rabbit players .... would be nice to fill up some more rabbit servers.
how are you in rabbit?
+Leon Metzen Move your arm more. Also, you could potentially have a mouse like mine where you can on the fly change the sensitivity from cqc mode to sniping mode. Most pro's play with large mouse pads and low sens.
This was super helpful! Would you recommend a big mouse pad like from Razer or would a standard size mouse pad depending on the game / player? Im mainly a console gamer and even there I use low sensitivity so going to pc and rocking a 5+ sensitivity isnt hard for me. I play mainly Battlefield 3, 4, WarFace, CS:GO, but I suck so bad so I am trying to figure out what I can do to break into good habits.
+Tung the gamer Haha. Actually, the gun recoil gets easier to control with low sensitivity, because your mouse movement becomes more accurate, which makes your gun recoil that much more accurate.
I know it is hard to wrap your head around, when you're used to the thought (wrong thought) that higher sensitivity means more control. It is the opposite.
However, at first it will feel very uncomfortable going from high sens. to low mouse sens. You have to learn to become relaxed using your mouse with low accuracy.
It's the same with creative works. The more accurate you have to be with a pencil, the more steady your hands have to be, which is why artists support their hands on a surface while drawing/painting, to create those fine small details.
+rizqi ariffi hmm.. I've never seen the recoil of CS:GO or any other CS hard to control... spray at a wall, then counter the drwaing, when you want to shoot at many people just counter the pattern and move the side where you want to be shooting at, it's that simple, or just shoot - stop - shoot - stop - shoot -stop really fast.
does a mouse really effect your aiming ability that much?
i just look as a mouse being a mouse.
Im new to pc gaming, have an old budget thing, (still plays most games), but have a £5 cheap shop mouse..
and my aiming on Call of Duty sucks!
I thought it was just due to being very new to PC gaming, and need to get used to it..
+gamerdude1989 if you need recommendations to get a mouse, get zelotes/patuoxun 7 button 5500dpi optical gaming mouse it's cheap and it's a lot better than a cheap £5 mouse, its actually £11 lol, but it is really good for the price. it has a premium feel to it, with its leds, and such, but the important thing is it has a quality sensor that can rival more expensive mouses and has seven buttons (includes dpi and doubleclick button) its really not shit even though its chinese. just take care of it, it even has a braided cable and a high click life. these mouses are actually of great budget quality (at least take it from a used-to-be spoiled kid like me), so don't be deceived by their price and 'made in China' or w/e mark. also it comes with a free mousepad that has good movement so it will help your aiming.
if oyu need a more premium mouse, with a excellent sensor (the one on the cheap one isn't bad at all though) you can consider the logitech g402 for 29.99£ on amazon.
just take your time with using a mouse. it is one of the best controllers you'll ever use for gaming. there is a reason why mouse control is still a big thing for PC gaming, it's too good. don't feel bad about not being able to fully adapt to it yet - just take your time and be patient.
stay calm, and stay positive. enjoy PC gaming
Hm Tried this. Only game it helped me with was Planetside 2 as it brought me from playing with 1600 DPI and 50% game sensitivity to 800 DPI and 20% sensitivity. Other games its ether to much or too little. :(
