There is a lot of that, the OGs sticking around.
its irritating dealing with the wall bouncers but when this game clicks its amazing. guess its like halo, only the dedicated playerbase is left. guess im gonna have to just keep on practicing it
It's hard, but not impossible.
When using the shotgun, holding L, or hard aiming as it's known, is situational.
When you're up close, don't aim at all, look where the barrel of the gun is pointing and use that to shoot. When you are not right up close, use hard aiming, further out then that? Pistol or rifle.
Stick with it. It's definitely worth it. So satisfying to play this game when everything clicks.
Also don't be afraid to help your teammates by spotting enemies (click the left stick whole aiming) or provide cover fire at distance with the lancer while a teammate is shotgunning an enemy. Being a good team player is essential for victory in gears.
