Part 8 of my Trem Skills programme helping to improve your Tremulous game skills.
Trem Skills #8 Deals with countering recoil that is associated with a Chaingun.
I find that alot of people can not effectively counter the recoil that is produced from using a Chaingun, unless of course they are in a battlesuit 😛 There is however a very good way of countering and limiting the amount of recoil a chaingun produces.
The method is quite simple but takes a bit of practice to perfect. How do you counter the recoil produced by a Chaingun? Simple you move the mouse in the opposite direction of the recoil, this technique can be used across a wide range of FPS games and is by no means limited to Tremulous.
The Chaingun recoil happens in a direction that forces your gun to move upwards, to counter this recoil effect all that is required is for you to move your mouse down at the appropriate amount this is where practice comes in.
Download the demo on controlling Chaingun recoil and see how much you can limit the effects of recoil.
Copy into your Tremulous base file then type the following code in the console.
See how when I am not pushing down on the mouse the Chaingun recoils all over the place, compared with when I am helping to correct the recoil.
