you need to get used to this game a little more then previous titles, because in this hit detection actually works and the maps are bigger so more of a tactical approach is needed rather then running everywhere like a headless chicken
1. stay closer to the outer of the map less likely you will die from the back
2. pre-aim around corners
3. stay on your toes, the spawns are currently out of control, they are looking into this, but till then expect an enemy to pop out of nowhere
it depends on the perks your character is using. Some players has the QUICK DRAW perk ON w/c will beat you all the time. Also, that/those players may be equipped w/ Ballistic vest (provided by their teammates.
no you're not alone.had same problem but had to change tactic and way I played.dropped first kem shortly after.
I'd say as other have to ads around corners all the time,especially with stalker.Also always use specialists so that your kills stack on each other. Lastly stop playing tdm and play a mode like blitz or Dom where the spawns are SLIGHTLY better(spawns are atrocious in this game) so that you have a general idea where people will be.
One more thing,because the spawns are so bad just assume that once you kill someone there will be 2 more so hold off on reloading if possible.
your getting shot int he back alot because of the spawns.. I like the game, and I am doing pretty well in it but the spawns need work, not to mention, some people are getting shot int he back because others havent gotten use to the maps, so they are still a bit campy
Yes, I have the same problem, skill, perks, and strategies don't matter, all that matters is lag.
If you think 1 to 1 gun battles are bad, even shooting people in the back is impossible. I'll see some doof's back as he's standing in a window looking out to snipe, run up and think, I'll stab him in the back, that'll teach him a lesson not to camp windows, then poof I'm dead, no red, he doesn't turn or anything I'm just plain alive then dead so I get to see my body fall to the back of his feet while he's still ADS'd in the window. Then in the killcam something totally different happens, he turns around, runs up to me, and stabs me. So lag is all that matters, in most cases a full 1-2 seconds of frames gets completely dropped from this game.
The frame drops on this game are complete trash, I'd rather play DOOM from a floppy disk on a 14.4k modem thank you!
Yes, my nat is open, my ports forwarded, DMZ, fixed ip, priority high, I have a gaming router and extreme cable modem. Those of us who have been playing games since Heretic, Doom, even Unreal know lag when we see it. The lag in Ghosts is a joke. If you're good at this game, think again, it's just your location in relation to the other players. Come to my house and play me local, I'll show you who's good!
Montgomery, Alabama which is a Capital, but yeah, you are probably right, location is key to shave off about 100ms, not that many people here in the area, the nearest DNS is in Huntsville a few hours away. Could be part of the issue, but 2 seconds of lag? I could get a better ping to France than that... Google is like 32ms delay, so no excuses...
Plus alot of players with fast connections are still suffering from a few milliseconds behind the action crap mostly UK players.... The Insta death crap still happening and ruining my game play.....just preying this will disappear or be better on ps4.......
