How to improve skill in BF3 (or any FPS for that matter)? - Page 9

post #81 of 131
Really the easiest way to improve is join a clan (a good one, that is serious about being competitive) and devoting time to this good clan. Playing with them constantly in pubs, and practising strats for scrimming. You will learn a lot more about the game, and vs whole TEAMS of players that are much better than the average pubber. That is in essence what I attribute my skill (which is really just the ability to top pub) to, being in a good clan for several months and dedicating a lot of time to that.

Also why don't you just try and deliberately improve your kd? Take less risks, don't cross open ground without checking it out first, play more cautiously and conservatively. I know you won't top pub this way, but you might feel happy about your 10 to 1 kd biggrin.gif

Practice, practice and practice.

Record yourself playing a match and watch what you did wrong, what you could have done better and etc.

From my 8+ years of FPS gaming experience I've come to the conclusion you can have all the aim and tactical prowess in the world, but it won't mean nothing unless you have good knowledge of the map. I always find once I know a map better than my own house I start to dominate on servers.

How many of you guys that diss surround sound headphones have actually tried them? There is no doubt that a good pair of 2.1 headphones offer way better sound than surround headphones but I still think they offer better positioning.

'Surround Sound' 'Gaming' Headphones are crap 99% of the time.

I can position shots much better with the soundstage of Beryerdynamic DT770s, than Astro A40s, Razer Megalodons, or G35's. No comparison. Add a nice soundcard/amp/dac, and the difference is enormous.

1. Get good FPS. As much as it sucks to hear, the hardware you have DOES play a major role. IMO, under 60fps is basically useless in a competitive FPS. I prefer not to use Vsync, but instead cap the FPS via the in-game console (vsync SEEMS to add a bit of mouse lag), but you can test that for yourself. Personally, I have FPS capped at 120, and my settings set so that I ALWAYS get 120fps (in BF3). Remember though its not JUST FPS. If you're getting 120fps, but it stutters a lot, its still just as bad as playing 20-30fps. The goal is to get an extremely smooth 60fps+. Try to set the fps CAP so that the FPS doesn't fluctuate massively, as that can make it seem like its getting 'sluggish', even though the FPS is over 60.

2. Good sound. Again, hardware does matter. A good headset is pretty helpful, but you dont need to go all-out. A $50 sennheiser headset is 90% as good as a $200 FOR GAMES (audiophiles, I know there is a massive technical difference). However, if you have the cash, the Sennheiser PC 350's are an AMAZING headset. Remember though, you'll want something to drive them. A good sound card can help as well, as it simulates direction much better than the default mobo crap. Again, you can get them between $50 and $200. There IS a difference, but its not insanely huge (again, I recommend the top-tier Creative X-FI Titanium HD).

3. Good input. Last hardware bit, I promise. Input is also key. Dont play with a default DELL mouse. Pick up something good. Be it a mid-range mouse, or some Logitech G500 thing, it WILL make a difference. Sadly they've stopped making the Logitech G5, so your best bet (IMO) is the Logitech G500. Don't go wireless either. Some people say the cord type matters as well, but I doubt it. As long as the cord isnt as stiff as a stick, it'll be fine. Also a keyboard CAN help if what you're using is crap. Again, a $30 upgrade can make a huge difference. I have no idea what the technical term is, but however the keys work in the FIRST GEN Logitech G15 is ideal IMO.

4. Do some aiming practice. I remember about a year after CoD4 came out, I decided (for no reason) that I wanted to be good with a bolt rifle. I set myself some random targets at medium range (15-20m, targets like "top of the door" or "that pole") and would try to shoot them after turning. So for example, i'd strafe past an open window, and try to hit the target without stopping. After a good 15 minutes my skill had gone up a fair bit, and I could actually play fairly well with just a bolt-rifle. A few weeks later, and I was usually top of the leader boards.

You're probably not going to do stuff like that in BF3 (doesnt REALLY work), but that kind of stuff still helps. Go into SP or empty MP servers, pick random targets and hit them as fast as possible. Try landing a 360 in a jump (run forward, while going forward jump and turn, land facing the same direction), that kind of stuff. Anything that requires mouse accuracy. After that, its really just play a whole lot.

Try and pick one weapon though, as each weapon acts slightly different. I would recommend the UMP45, MP7, PP2000 or any of the Engie weapons. Play with that till your KD gets around 2.0 per round, and then try some other stuff.

Used every SteelSeries Audio headphone product, as well as the Icemat Siberias (before they were bought out by SS). Used two Razer headphones, and still own a pair of Turtle Beach for the Xbox360.

None of which even compare to my AD700's.
