Is that the layout with right stick as crouch and melee circle?


"Button Puncher" is just what you described above.

"Evolved" is that, plus it puts jump on LB and your ability on X (this makes it tricky for Bangalore to aim run and fire her smoke though, but I find its a worthy trade off especially as I'm usually pathfinder.)

Being able to jump while keeping eyes on an enemy is very handy. Plus jumping and meleeing is a kick which is quicker than the standard punch and using that technique has give me an edge in the early scrappy fistfights (you can use RT to melee if you haven't got a weapon, so I don't need to claw to the O button in said situations).

I definitely strawberry floated up a few times trying to change over my muscle memory, but it was worth it in the end!

Edit: if they patch is with custom controls I might try changing "use" to R1 and "ping" to Square so I can loot easier, haha.

Oh and to practice using that control scheme I recommend playing through the Titanfall 2 campaign with it on as that also helped me re learn the muscle memory, and also appreciate again what a strawberry floating awesome FPS campaign that is.

I put it on earlier to enter that competition, found it completely pointless. You spend enough time watching other people play while waiting to be revived! :shifty:

In other news - 1000G get! Hoping for more achievements with the battle pass.


On the PlayStation but currently need about 400 damage with Mirage for 5000 and I'm level 48, so a matter of a very little time for me and also hoping the Battle Pass drops some extra things to do. Although I will probably keep playing some weekend nights when my usual group have a spare space. I can't see me carrying on playing solo though as down right frustrating a lot of the time compared to pre made squads.

Like buses wins on this game, hadn't got one since getting back from Germany a week Tuesday ago, then got two in a row last night.

Moving jump to L1 is a revelation

Get a Peacekeeper and you will do damage

Oh aye, I learned that one back in the Halo 3 days. I'm also enjoying slide on R3 as you can keep eyes on a target while sliding.

I can't wait till this adds single player, everyone seems to be a complete tool in this game. I'm constantly paired with absolute plebs.

Going to try this out tonight. I'm expecting miracles! Will be disappointed if it doesn't turn me into a god! :lol:

I'm getting the hang of this now, having decent games fairly regularly. Think my setting are helping a lot too. Just fighting against the random plebs I'm put with mostly. Anyone playing this on PC?

I actually stopped playing because of this.

And I play Overwatch so that's saying something.

Almost earnt enough in game currency to unlock Mirage or Caustic

Think I might go with Caustic as he's a bit more defensive which suits me.

Won't lie, very disappointed by the rewards in this Battle Pass - every 5 levels is just a badge to show what level in the season you are, so 20% of the rewards are pointless straight up.

There's a lot of filler, including a useless "Season 1 kills tracker" for each of the 9 legends (and if you want it for Bangalore, you need to get to level 76),so that's another 10% of the rewards there. Then throw in rubbishy banner frames and common weapon skins and there's not much there I want.

I am keeping in mind though that these are the rewards they would have planned well before releasing the game when they had no idea of how popular it would get, and I hope next season gets better rewards.

This game is just annoying me, it's excellent, it's design, it's gameplay but my team mates are so irritating. Dude yesterday quits after dying even though we got his tag and killed other team and happened to be RIGHT BESIDE a respawn platform!

This is grade A rage inducing along with Battlefield 1 when noobs didn't use the juggernauts to any effect and Rocket League with players literally NEVER defending and also being utter garbage, then when you get beaten they sarcastically put 'great save' into the chat! RAAAAAARRRRR!

I never rage when I'm killed at all, just my team mates being utter plebites!

They need to put in some punishments for regularly quitting early. Some people don't even care once they've been downed.

And the update is out now (3gb).

Looks like some good QoL improvements and I'm looking forward to trying the new Legend.

Limited the amount of Lifeline’s D.O.C. drones that can connect to a player to 2.
