Why am I so bad at PC FPS? - Page 2

post #11 of 135
I made the jump from console to pc about 10 years ago. Goin from controller to mouse/ keyboard is tough at first, but just keep at it. You'll grow into it and become a better gamer for it. Now, for me, the controller is awkward.

1-invert mouse
2-medium to high mouse sensitivity- i like small movments of the mouse

Everyone always uses that excuse (Mostly console fanboys) "You play PC so its easier with a mouse and keyboard"..When in reality its not at all..Its harder to the average person to play on a mouse and keyboard because theres a lot more to it..All I got to say is practice practice. I really wish I still played in competition but whatever lol..Funny when I make someone play on my PC and there like "this is to hard!" You'll get it eventually.

Play with people with your skill level. Once you can dominate them, play with people that are better, and so on.

I'm willing to bet you're not as bad as you think you are. It's hard to go from one to the other. I get thoroughly pwned every time I play XBox games with friends, almost to the point where I want to chuck the controller at someone. Don't worry. Like the above users have said, keep practicing.

My #1 advice: Don't look at the ground while you're running around. This may seem obvious to you (since you play on the XBox), but I have seen SOOO many people do this. They look at the ground while running, and when an enemy shows up, they can't turn+look up fast enough. In my opinion, it's much easier to quickly jerk your mouse left or right, than to have to jerk up+left or up+right.

Either it feels perfect for aiming, or perfect for movement/looking.. I can't find anything that seems to work for both.
I run a pretty high sensitivity..i can probably do 3-4 or more full 360's in around 4 inches of movement or so. Biggest tip is just go by what you like and not what by someone tells you..Everyone's different.
Edit : My mouse is set at 4000 dpi..Sensitivity number ranges from game to game.

Haha, that's what we used to say to the PC fanboys that would come into our threads on the BC2 EA forums and trash us.

Maybe I just need to play with mouse acceleration on lol? So that I can whip the mouse to turn around and when I need to move quicker.. I dunno..

Mouse accel is personal preference..Some pro's use it some don't..I personally don't. I can beat all my friends on consoles also even though I dont own a console lol

Well my problem as of now is movement fluidity. The keypad seems to me so much more 'sticky?' and less responsive than a joystick (to move around at least). I find myself trying to sidestep left or right just after running but then I realize I have to do some secret key combination and gang sign to the keyboard to get it to stop running, then start straffing..

Or perhaps I should just assign the run key to be a side button on my mouse instead of the keypad.. Since my pinky tends to not listen to what my brain tells it to do.

Oooo I see what you're saying. Have you tried using the space bar (thumb>pinky)? When I play games that allow you to "sprint" I bind it to my space bar.
