    Obvious things it took you ages to notice

    As I've recently passed my first birthday in EU, I've started realising that I still keep noticing things that are new to me, but were blatantly obvious to others. Also, I've mentioned odd tips in soc chat to our newer members, only for experienced players to say, "I never new that!".

    So, I thought I'd share the blatantly-obvious-things-it-took-me-ages-to-notice, and see if anyone else has any more (it'll mean it won't take me another year to spot them ).

    A few to start the ball rolling:

    1. When shooting in 1st person mode, your gun will 'flash' if you are out of range (for a long time I just thought my graphics card was playing up )

    2. You *can* fap at full strength while walking forwards, as long as you're not going downhill, because then you speed up and the heals drop.

    3. The amazing coincidence of someone wanting to buy exactly what you want to sell at the *very* moment you list the item on auction.....is actually just the ordering system

    4. Higher HP mobs are visible from futher away on the radar (I am amazed at just how long it took me to work that one out! )

    Anyone got anymore?

    while fapping, in the reload time you can run if you press the left and right mouse button in the same time, and if you use this, not the Q button, your fap is puted down automatically you run faster this way, its useful in pvp for example

    Can you plse explain what you mean by "When shooting in 1st person mode, your gun will 'flash' if you are out of range". I don;t know it, and am not sure how to notice what you mean, and think it may well prove rather useful

    mine: You can scroll the previous bidders on an item in the auction to see more than the 5 last bids.

    Well, it's most noticeable on rifles (especially my MkII). you get a 'wave' of light from the front to the back on the gun when you fire - it doesn't show up on my laptop (probably because the graphics settings are at min), but it's really noticeable on my PC.

    I'm not sure I'm explaining it particularly well!

    Post My contribution ...

    Hi there ... great idea to share each other's tips for a better game ...
    Hmmm, what do i want to share

    This one is simple but probably very useful !!!
    -- When you die, don't wait for the revive request to show up, simply push T
    on your keyboard JUST after you die, you get some extra seconds ... who
    knows when it can be useful
    Also, this one for the very new newbies, as it's easy to discover after a bit of hunting :
    -- When you hunt, always have an idea about the range of your gun, as it's
    very useful ... so my advice drag the Mobtangle, as i call it (rectangle with
    the name of the mob by cliking on the creature and draging ur mouse
    cursor) then before you approach it just clik on the tangle, and your
    avatar will simply approach to the good range ... and for others that love
    shortcuts, do it ... because it's useful to avoid the loot lagg
    One last useful one :
    --Tired of the spam of PMs ? you don't wana close the chat boxes because
    you can forget your last sentence or lose your partner's last sentence
    there's a little "-" that allows you to reduce the size of the chat boxe to
    the title with the name of the chatter ... and whenever he sends something
    new, a red dot appears on the left corner of the title ... pretty useful to
    have some empty space ...

    Well that's all for my modest 9month and a half experience, hope it helps someone out there ... ENJOY THE GAME ... BE PRACTICAL !!

    Cheers,

    DEF

    Here are a couple of tips from me

    - The problems with removing thigh guards are caused by equipped teleporter chip. Unequip the teleporter chip and you can remove the thighs without problems.

    - To shoot faster, go into the options and activate the "Queue use tool action when reloading". Means that you can press operate / fire during reload and your gun / tool will instant make another action when reload is finished.

    This tips is usefull for suedish and very close to server player.
    Other , should disable that option , or they will have more "miss shot" , because gun will fire before server alow it.
    Its way better to wait 1 or 2 1/10 second after relod finish and realy fire , than fire faster , and do not fire.
    You dont loss amo when you not fire like that ( server give them back) , but you loss way more time ( a full reload at least) than waiting 1/10 second at eatch shot.
