Don't worry you'll eventually get it.
Try not to over-load your mouse with too many buttons! I try to keep it to 4:
3. Throw grenade (mouse wheel button/scroll)
4. Voice chat (mouse thumb button)
The "Pros" actually move their shoot button to the keyboard so as not to disrupt the mouse position AT ALL when sniping.
Back in the Doom days I switched from pure keyboard to mouse+keyboard. It took a a WHOLE week to re-learn how to play.
* The first two days I was bad.
* By the third day I was back up to normal skills
* But by day 5 I was so far ahead of my previous skills I wondered how anyone could play with such grotesque movements. Even modern day gamepads are *barely* a step up from keyboards. They are that BAD: Inconsistent dead-zones, linear acceleration, etc.
Eventually you jack your sensitivity up so you can literally do a 180 on the turn of a pin. Yes, that tight.
The further you are behind enemy lines every few seconds you should be "sweeping" the area to prevent from getting ambushed from behind. Plus you'll likely catching a few enemies getting heading TOWARDS your base.
Also set your mouse sampling rate to 1000 Hz
, if possible, not the default garbage that Windows defaults to: 125 Hz. The higher sampling rate will help interpolate over the 60 rendered frames.
Also, turn V-Sync OFF
to eliminate "mouse input lag". This can *easily* shave off a few milliseconds to ~ 25 ms.
For movement your left hand should be using the standard WASD inverted T shape. You could even use the ESDF keys -- but I don't by that argument because your pinky "anchors" your left hand on the shift/ctrl.
Just practice, practice, practice until you can move without looking down!
If you *really* want to get in people's faces and have everyone just plain hate you on the server -- put your knife key on your thumb to minimize knife reaction time. Milliseconds matter for this weapon.
Lastly, for multiplayer turn the graphics options DOWN
until you can sustain a *guaranteed* 60 FPS in a HEAVY firefight. You should be running 80 to 100 FPS without anything going on. (Obviously this doesn't really apply for single player.)
Alrighty then, enough FPS "secrets"
Been distracted with my Dennon 3313CI. Just moved and the cable modem is getting hooked up tomorrow so should be checking out the BF4 beta, finally, this weekend.
Edit: Added whitespace, and ESDF hints
