    Hi,

    I have been playing BF4 for the past two months, and I am addicted to it. But I can't aim for shit.

    2 cases in point;

    a bloke is walking up some stairs to catch me unawares only I know that he is coming. That should be like insta death right? I watched him come around the corner and from prone I let him have the full magazine. I started shooting as soon as he came into my reticule and i continued shooting as I aimed down sight. FULL MAG! Geezer shoots me twice and I die!

    This guy does not know I am there. The ghost. I stalk my prey. As soon as I think I am within spunking distance I let him have it. I shoot like a halo shaped body around him and run out of ammunition, and swap to my side arm and let him have a magazine of that shit too. nothing. He nonchalantly turns and spiffs me with a PDW.

    I boss at Titanfall but I suck and blow ass at Battlefield 4 at the same time.

    I have spent time at the range. I have got the attachments that make my weapon work well against concrete. But as soon as I come across real human opponents the reticule starts jumping left AND right and then UP, UP UP! The only way I can get bullets on target is to select single shot but that defeats the purpose of many of the carbines and PDWs.

    I know I suck. I don't need some pudgy spotty unpopular kid to tell me that. What I want to know. Is how the fuck can I improve?

    I asked here, because well this is where I found a home. I started with TF and I boss it. Gen 10 Lvl 50 but I suck at BF.

    Please help

    I know just what you're talking about Sarge. And it's quite possible that I could be even worse than you in BF4.o_O I can't help your aiming problem, but I can tell you what I did... I gave up on it and played more Titanfall.:) Happy Holidays.

    I was a Battlefield fan boy, all the way up to Battlefield 4. That s**t happens all the time and I can't explain it.

    I'm just glad to see it isn't just me!

    always aim at the head, that wins any fight, and use a headset to track your enemies footsteps

    I was that way for a long time. I hate all the excuses people make about lag BUT there is no doubt that BF and COD for me is so full of lag it is sick. That may be part of your problem. What finally worked for me about the lousy aim part was to take a breath and slow down the panic and really aim carefully. The first few hundred times I got shot, But then the speed without loss of accuracy picked up. Short bursts as above are also key. It is fun to play those other games once in a while I guess.

    Speaking of "lag" or whatever it's called, Titanfall for has had a lot of it lately. Hard reset of xbox and router work sometimes butnothing seems to work lately. It's just an annoyance now, not bad enough to stop me from playing.:)

    I wondered about that recently. It has not been a big problem, but I wondered after I unloaded a whole 101 clip into some one at close range and he still nailed me with two shots of his water pistol.

    Shunted? Did not know that happens. That might explain why all of a sudden last night I was playing with a bunch of Euro's. I thought it a bit strange but figured they were using our server. Hmmm. At least Titanfall is a universal language.

    I heard some strange accent (it was very low) on the header last night before I was disconnected from the game, and had to reconnect my xbox to the internet. Worked better... no lag at all which was good.:)

    If the numbers are insufficient in your area or there is an issue with connection to your local server the system will find the next best server for you. The big giveaway is the grunts start moonwalking, it means you have a crappy connection to the server.

    @Sgt_rawk That's funny because I pop in BF4 yesterday for a change of pace and got my butt shot off.:D I could not (and I really tried) get the flow of the game. 15 or 20 minutes later I had to call it quits.:confused:

    short bursts will help it took me a little while to figure it out too. its also because if you are level 3 you will have more trouble killing a player who is level 100. if you like to stalk your prey, then give the ultimate insult and take his dog tags. I get a sick thrill out of doing that
