  1. A combat guide was requested so I'm gonna try to explain the reasons behind my aim settings and give my two cents on the different weapons since I dabble quite a bit with virtual guns. It has to be said that I'm still not sure about a lot of the settings so I mess around with them quite a bit to see what works, and what works for me might not work for you. With that said, below is how they look at the moment. Also, feel free to post your thoughts, tips & tricks in this thread. Aim settings: Lock-On Mode (On-Foot and Mount/Vehicle) are both set to wide. Only started using it the other day after DC's shout and have yet to notice any difference compared to normal, but in theory it should allow you to lock onto enemies faster as you don't have to turn all the way to face them directly. Downside can be that instead of targeting the enemy in front of you, it will target another enemy in the peripheral which wasn't an uncommon problem in GTAO. There's also the chance that I'm taking it too literal. There's not a lot of info on this setting. Aim-assist (On-Foot): Again, not quite sure about this one. During story mode I turned it all the way down when trying out free aim to build up muscle memory, and I forgot all about it until yesterday when I turned it back up (which is default if I'm not mistaken). I felt like it helped but it's hard to tell tbh. Definitely didn't hurt so I'll leave it maxed out. Aim-assist (Mount/Vehicle): This should without a doubt be set to max. Look Sensitivity can be turned up quite a bit without overshooting and the picture getting too distorted when moving the camera. It allows you to look and turn around quicker. Aim Sensitivity is a tricky one but very important for quick headshots. It really depends on what you are comfortable with and I'd suggest raising it bit by bit. Once you are comfortable with a new setting try raising it again. If you can't get the hang of it then lower it back down and you have found your spot. Another thing to keep in mind is that a high sensitivity will make it harder in other areas like hunting, shooting of horseback, etc. So it very much depends on what you value the most. Aim/Look Acceleration: This is how quickly your cross hair accelerates when aiming from when you first move the analog stick and how quickly the camera accelerates when not aiming. I'd say it's the same as the above. It can hurt you in other areas. Aim/Look Dead Zone: Assuming this is the same as in GTAO, dead zone is the time between when you move the analog stick and when the movement happens on-screen. So definitely turn that all the way down so there's no delay. No idea why this setting is even in the game. Weapons: Gonna focus on which weapons it makes sense to buy money-wise while still being properly geared up for a fight. Main goal is to not spend money on unnecessary shit. Revolvers/pistols: This is purely going off the stats and might prove different in practice, but I'm looking to get the Semi-Auto Pistol. It's cheaper than the Mauser and beats it in fire rate and accuracy while only losing in the damage department. And since headshots are so important in auto aim, I'll rather take fire rate and accuracy over damage. A headshot is a kill no matter the weapon so it's better to have the higher accuracy to land the shot and the quicker fire rate if the first shot doesn't land. Whether you've have started out with the free Volcanic Pistol or High Roller Revolver, I wouldn't recommend buying anything before having enough money for the Semi-Auto/Mauser. It's not worth the upgrade IMO. Another option is to go with the Sawed-Off Shotgun (yeah, it's a shotgun but it takes up space in the sidearm slot so I'll list it here) and free up the long gun slots for a rifle/repeater combo. It only holds two bullets but with an off-hand holster you can rock a pair of those bad boys. Recommend: Sawed-Off Shotgun, Semi-Auto Pistol Repeaters: The Lancaster seems to be the weapon of choice in this class. Compared to the Litchfield it has superior fire rate, reload and accuracy at the cost of a little fire power. Recommend: Lancaster Rifles: The Bolt is a must-buy. For now it's the best rifle in the game for longe range killing and big game hunting, and it comes at a decent price so there's no reason to buy a bit cheaper rifle first. It was the first weapon I bought and upgraded. The Varmint Rifle is also a must-buy for hunting small game. Very cheap and works fine without upgrading it in any way. And with it's low recoil it's deadly with those headshots, both against the AI and in PVP. As for the snipers it's not really a contest. The Carcano is by far the better gun. It doesn't unlock before level 50 but the Bolt can be equipped with a scope so you don't have to waste money on the Rolling Block while you wait for the Carcano to unlock. Recommend: The Bolt, Varmint and Carcano Shotguns: Since I've the Ultimate Edition I started out with the Pump-Action Shotgun. If I hadn't, it probably still would have ended up in my armory as a shotgun is a must-have in my book. It's considerable better than the cheaper options and also 300 bucks cheaper than the Repeating Shotgun. No reason to spend that much money when the superior Semi-Auto Shotgun unlocks at level 42. Recommend: Pump-Action and Semi-Auto Shotgun Bow: Mandatory! Great for stealth missions and just overall a lot of fun. Modifications: I'd would say save your money and only buy upgrades for the weapons that will be the main ones in each their classes for a considerable periode. Tips: Like in GTAO you can do the quick 180° turn, though it's not quite as effective as you keep on going in the same direction as before you turned around if you don't press down and then up on the left analog stick. The turn is done by holding down the right analog stick (without aiming), then quickly aim to make your player turn around. It's comes in handy for when you spot an enemy behind you on the mini-map. Don't know if it has a name but let's call it the combat dive. It's common knowledge but some might have wrote it off completely because it's not the combat roll from GTAO. While it's not anywhere near as effective, it's actually still pretty useful in situations where an enemy gets the jump on you. It's not OP like the combat roll as the enemy will quickly be able to lock on again but it will be a tough shot going for the head and that can buy you time to get one off yourself. It has to be said that if you are already really low on health or the enemy is carrying a shotgun the dive isn't of much use as they can easily get off a bodyshot before you get back up. The dive is done by pressing square while aiming and pointing the right analog stick in the direction you want to jump. The option to expand the mini-map for good is there so why not use it? It doesn't take up at lot of space on the screen and you don't have to press down on the d-pad all the time for a better look. Also giving a better look is going for the third person view that is furthest away from the player. It gives you a bigger chance to spot enemies coming from the sides and helps you scan around corners more efficiently all while the aiming zoom remains the same as in any other third person view, though it still might take some getting used to. Guess that is it for now. Might cover the ability cards in the future. I hope you'll find some of this useful. Again, if you have some combat tips & tricks of your own and/or thoughts on weapons, post them here. Videos of the turn and dive:
  2. Might try this setup out so I'm covered from both long, mid and close range. Bolt, Lancaster and duel wielding Sawed-Off Shotguns.

    Some great shots! You should post them in our threads on GTAF. https://gtaforums.com/topic/837557-domestic-battery/ https://gtaforums.com/topic/679747-ps4-mature-gamers/ - only one post a week with the exception of Lann's welcome posts. It's due for an update.

    Do we have any basketball fans on the site? I know @zmurko and @Fido_le_muet are into the sport, but surely some of the NA folks must be as well. It has never really my sport. Well, haven't really payed it any attention. But a while ago I came across "Inside the NBA" on Youtube. First, it was just for the entertainment since many of the clips have nothing to do with basketball, just the crew goofing around. Charles Barkley is mighty entertaining to watch. Then I began watching full episodes of the show plus "Open Court" with all the legends and I must say it has gotten my attention now. Recently, I have watched the final playoff matches of last NBA season and I'm even considering getting a league pass when the new season kicks off. Hopefully it won't just be the Warriors cruising for the title. So what's your team? Since I'm a complete newbie I'm still without one. Of course, this is not just a thread for NBA, but all basketball around the world.

    That last step-back on Capela! Halleluka! This game more than any other showed that he's not your normal rookie. Shit game, 0 of 4 from three, still takes completely over in the 4th with one three after another.
  6. I'm pleasantly surprised. The quick fire rate made a lot of difference in the chaos that is Most Wanted. Though the fall in accuracy when used to the Bolt is very noticeably. From close to around mid-range it's fine for headshots but further out the difference is big. I'd say it depends a lot on the map/combat mode. Missed the Bolt a lot while playing Hostile Territory. But I definitely underrated the repeaters!
  7. Might have to give my trusty Bolt a break and try out the Lancaster. Heard a lot of good things now.

    What're you listening to right now?

    Danish super-duo DJ Static and Nat Ill with the Swedish rap legend Promoe.
  10. Unfortunately yes. I picked the one that gives a little damage boost to the whole team which is kinda hard to confirm is working properly. It's the passive cards where it gets interesting. Waiting for the better cards to be unlocked before I spend too much money on it.
  11. Post a photography of your ugly mug. Starting out, here's the Telli of the Wild West.

  14. I've a solution for that as well.

    As a crew: assisted or free aim?

    Can't really say I have. Headshots are not quite as easy as in GTAO but when I get them it seems to do the job.
  16. Banketelli

    As a crew: assisted or free aim?

    I played a large portion of the story mode in free aim because I really wanted to go that way but just couldn't get used to it. It's just as bad as in GTA. IMO these games are without a doubt made for auto. I'll play whatever the different hosts decide upon for their events but on my own it will always be auto aim.
  17. Nothing like good ol' R* spawn killing. Well, the second one doesn't really count. Fucker shot at me!

    Cheers for joining, everyone. Bit chaotic but fun! If anyone has any photos of a bunch of us, please post them here. Meant to take some for crew promotions but completely dropped the ball on that one. @LimeGreenLegend @DefaultBling @DavidCore89 @pete_95973 @zztop911 @Ultramoorine @Xyon14 @shortround @bakri16
  25. The Bolt was an easy buy. The price is decent, it's the best rifle (not counting the snipers) and you gotta get something better than the Carbine for medium-long range. With a scope on it, it works fine as a sniper as well. Skipping the Rolling Block and will grab the Carcano when level 50. The Pump shotgun will do for now, just upgraded it, will skip the Semi-auto and get the Repeating shotgun once I hit level 42. Not really using sidearms. Rather stick with the rifle or switch to the shotgun. But that might change once I get a hold of the Semi-auto pistol. Unlocks in a few levels so that will probably be the next thing I save up for. Might have to look a bit closer but going of the in-game catalog, it looks better than the Mauser which also first unlocks at level 34. The Mauser is only best in damage, range is the same while fire rate, reload and accuracy all favors the Semi-auto. Have upgraded the Bolt and the Pump. Once I get the pistol, I'll upgrade that as well and then save up for the Repeating+upgrades and then the Carcano. Haven't heard about the headshots with the bunny rifle. Will have to check it out. When I have used it in combat it has been accidents where I have mistaking it for the shotgun so have just firing quick shots at the body. Not very effective. Oh, also got the bow. Mandatory.
