Why am I so bad at PC FPS? - Page 3

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. headscratch.gif
Sprint for me on any game is set as shift...Try that...Heres how I play usually.
Pinky on shift always
Middle finger W and S
Pointing finger D moves to c for crouch
other finger A
I set my prone as ALT so I can quickly Jump to prone without delay (Disable ALT-TAB or do what I did and keymap switch ALT and CTRL
Crouch is always C
Knife button is always side of mouse
Turn toggle off on Aiming down your sights so you have to Hold your right click to stay in the sights (Makes aiming in and out much easier and quicker with better control)
Switch guns is Scroll for quick switching
Jump always = Spacebar

Getting good at FPS is not an easy project. here are some random tips. also here's a screen shot of me with a 10:1 k/d ratio so you know I know what i'm talking about.

Read this guide: http://www.eve-films.com/forum/showthread.php?40381-FraGTaLiTy-s-Epic-Gaming-Mice-Guide-for-PC-Shooting-Games

I heard BC2 mouse control was horrible cause it's a console port.

Maybe play a simple game (control wise) like COD4, that way you can get comfortable with the basic keys of an FPS. Then once you're a good COD4 player you can try a more expansive game.

Practice and watch good players.

Plus I have 3 years and thousands of hours of WoW burned into my brain that thumb = jump lol. And I'm a pretty bad typer, which means my brain and fingers don't like to work together as much as they should, making me pretty uncoordinated. I imagine somebody that is a very good typer is naturally good at games where they instantly have to memorize keys for various different things.

I use the Belkin N52TE Speed Pad and its been awesome for me. It has a Dpad, scroll wheel, and your typical WASD keys. I first started with the N52 SpeedPad.

I am very good at fps games usually and even I go through this as well... usually you either just gotta get used to the way the new game your playing runs/ new mouse/keyboard and sensitivity settings etc... But I would have to say find a good sensitivity thats closest to what you like and then keep it there and once you get used to it you will get good fast, just play for hours straight biggrin.gif

I randomly bought MOH and BFBC2 not knowing what to expect, only to find out that I own at FPS on PC, MOH I have a skill of ~6500 in MOH and a ~2.0 KDR in BFBC2.
What I did when I first started was lowered my DPI on my mouse to 1800 at 500hz and just camped it out smile.gif and eventually started moving about... Just practice! Took me a week.

I seriously sucked at Xbox when I first picked it up. My Halo 3 KDR is crap. But I played for a while, and now I have a >1 KDR in Reach, cause I used to play Xbox a LOT. You just get better with practice. I haven't really had anything that could game until recently, and this thing even struggles with CSS >.< So I'm just going to do a lot of SP when I get my new build, or embarrass myself online, because I don't really care what people think about me in a game.

No no no, don't think that. Honestly, I'm not sure what you mean by "I'm a pretty bad typer." You capitalize your I's and don't write things like "datz how i tawk bruh" (saw that in another thread lol). Seems like you're a good typer to me.

I can understand the space bar/thumb = jump thing. I have friends who use it the same way. I have friends who use the space bar to scope (confused.gifeek.gif). Again, it's all preference. Having said this, I'm not sure how you can get around your sprinting-change-to-strafing dilemma... Perhaps you could click down on your mouse wheel? (This would be "mouse3"). Not actually rolling the wheel, but clicking down on it.
