I was getting a bit bored of the latter stages of games basically turning into Carmageddon so this pleases me.

Really is that a thing? Vehicles just get you killed on PC, really easy to shoot someone out of one

Had a weekend of many, many wins, my squad had gotten rather highly ranked in TPP, so we decided to give FPP a go, and man we killed it. Though we did have 1 win where we barely moved or saw anyone

I'm sure it's fine in squads but in solo they were a real problem.

Even solo it is not an issue, but I guess it is a mouse keyboard thing, harder to control a vehicle, but much easier to spin and aim

Seems like if you want no aim acceleration you have to set it to 10 not 0 - https://www.reddit.com/r/PUBGXboxOne/co ... h=9189a52b

Played a few games on XB1 and everything seems to be improved a bit. Less Rubber Banding, better Framerate, buildings seem to load in quicker whilst parachuting. Can't comment on the shooting.

This game is equal parts brilliant and frustrating. When I'm doing well, it's just so tense and fun and I love it. But when I can't shoot for gooseberry fool or pretty much any time I get killed, it's so rage inducing. Like getting constantly bad dice rolls in Twilight Struggle.

Played one game on FPP and it’s massively improved on X1X. Even the parachute part is smooth. :wub:

Just got a great kill. One shot someone with my Winchester as they were speeding off in a camper van. Just took a second to line my shot up and blam! It was so satisfying.

Got first Chicken Dinner in FPP last night. It was a hard slog to be honest, took about our 5th go. In TPP you can kill a lot of folk with out having to look down sights but in FPP you're forced to. It's an even more tense experience knowing you can't look 360 degrees on a wim. It did lead to some strange stuff, driving is quite a nightmare if it's hilly at all cos you're in the car and can't see that far ahead over the crest of a hill. Also in the final (or one of the final circles) I ran to a tree and to my amazement a guy was crouched at it. I was presumably out of his field of view as he was looking to my right....I froze for a min then when he didnt shoot or move to face me (he was was walking a bit seemingly scoping out the area) I calmly took out my 2 bullet shot gun and ended him. Very strange.
