First person

I notice quite a lot of the time when I'm playing in a showdown that some people seems to be able to dodge around way quicker than I can. Is this to do with them being in first person while I'm always in third person? Is this still a thing in RDO just like it was in GTA?

I'm sure the first person shooter configuration is here and works the same, yeah.

 

R1 for running rather than tapping X, that sort of thing. :)

Holding R1 makes you run?

It does if you change the controller settings. Though must advise googling or awaiting another's help on it as I don't know the details fully. But it's supposedly a good thing for first person PvP.

I rarely bother changing my controller scheme unless I know I'll be in 1st Person for a long while. I can tell you playing in 1st person does make a (significant, imo) difference if you use it right and/or you're better with FPS in general. I prefer FPS but RDO has so much beautiful scenery, so I use 3rd unless I'm getting pressured.

 

When you adjust your controller, make sure you go over exactly what was changed and how, muscle memory can be a bitch if you're really used to one way and you switch up. There's a lot of options so go over them all, even try them out and see if it's a method you can get used to. They have reasons for being set-up in those orders, google is your friend there, you can get breakdowns on what 'play styles' they go with. Use whatever you're comfortable with though, I've seen people use weird set-ups that I'd never do but are just as good, if not better.

 

In the end, that part is user preference as much as going with a certain style. No real wrong answers. 

 

TL;DR

 

Yeah, FPS on here is pretty much the same as GTA.

Check out the options for the controller schemes. Pick what's comfortable if you even decide to switch. Profit.

That's so true.

 

I went back to GTA III/VC for a spell recently and I cannot tell you how many times I pressed the D-pad on the down button to expand the minimap, lol. The combat on III is particularly 'wooden' compared too, tricky as no camera panning really.

 

But once I'd had my fill, I came back over to GTA:O and found myself pressing X to accelerate when in a hot moment. Funny though!

Although the lateral movement is quicker just like in GTA, there is no marksman rifle.  And even if there was a 15 round semi auto sniper, the minimap disappearance and awkward scope makes sniping a refined taste in RDO.  I am willing to bet most of the people seem quicker because of lag in showdowns or Free roam events than them playing in FP.  I think 3rd person has the advantage in RDO.  There may be some controller setups which dont require tapping to sprint.  But you have to tap to sprint in FP by default unlike GTA.  FPS2 definitely does not requires tapping to sprint.

FPS2 settings

this has worked well for me..My A key was getting weak so the right bumper does what A,did

You need to make a few adjustments to crouch and weapons wheel But the new keys are listed

I have just move my A button with an elite controller.  The RB buttons break on xbox controllers.  The eventually stop working and the fall out.  I have replaced the bumpers on over 4 controllers.  This was all because of GTAO.  I dont learn so well.

Are you able to use the Hair triggers on the elite, I never could-When I first started playing I was unable to use LT to Talk or aim I was So Frustrated-until I reset triggers to normal then things worked as it should.

I'm curious how the lack of a marksman rifle in RDO has anything to do with the effectiveness of faster lateral movements in FP.

 

And just to add something I forgot to mention, you can adjust the sensitivity for looking and aiming in RDO, both first and third person. This will also make a difference.

Basically, you could just hold the trigger and kind of aim in the right area and kill people who might be better free aim snipers in GTAO.  An expert 3rd person sniper would probably lose to this setup if he refuses to change.  Even if the expert's controller setup allows movement and aiming at the same time, the lateral movement of FP in GTAO is so much faster that not only does it make the shooters random shots more likely to hit, but if the expert is picking their shots, the shots will be much harder to land because of the speed moving back and forth.  Which is why, many on this forum hated the marksman, its probably still a tryhard go to on the ground.

 

In RDO, the old timey sniper scopes and lack of minimap when aiming makes it much harder to find people once in the scope.  So, your lateral movement speed has little to no effect during sniping if the shooter cannot you find the target.  Which leads to my claim, even if there was marksman rifle in RDO, it would not be a very effective weapon against players because finding them in the scope is pretty difficult. You can probably remain stationary to try and snipe most people if your good.  However, if both players agreed to have a "beach" style fight somewhere in the heartlands, a marksman style sniper would be handy, but there arent many players that would even think to this in RDO, and I must say I am glad thats the case.

Ah, I see what you're talking about now. I played GTAO a bit but my experience there isn't towards any kind of PvP.

 

I'm bout to pick up my first 'full-time' sniper rifle in RDO, I use the bolt action but the scope is for hunting and never paid much attention.

I rely on the minimap in shoot-outs so I don't get surrounded, you saved me some trial and error.
