Therefore, the controls do take a while to get used to as there is a button for everything! But once you've got the hang of them, you'll find they work really well and doing things in game will be second nature.
    It's not that I was expecting COD simplicity, it just doesn't feel intuitive at all. Plus, and this may be an issue with my system I need to look at, aiming is a pig. Moving the mouse has a "fluid" feel to it, very imprecise. Aiming down sights, the slightest movement of the mouse and it jumps 10 feet, nigh on impossible to do much more than fire from the hip. I turned mouse sensitivity right down, just made it slower (still as imprecise). I turned the DPI right up on my mouse, which sped things back up but was still imprecise as before. I know that if I'm in a fire fight and I can't hit anything because my sights are jumping everywhere, I am going to rage quit lol.

    Hummm, I would have said that it sounds like mouse sensitivity is up a bit too hight but sounds like you;ve addressed that. It could also be mouse acceleration in Windows being enabled and affecting sensitivity in game? I know I turned mine off as in some FPS games, a quick mouse movements made me do 360 turns! Think I have my DPI set to 400 or 1000? Can't recall without actually checking later. I'll check my mouse settings etc and post back what I have set. It did take me a bit of a while to get to grips fully but now it's fine.

    Once you've got your mouse settings responsive, you may want to practice some shooting but not against sharpshooters or using yourself as a target! There are some really good downloadable single player rifle range 'missions', some of them really in depth where you can spawn people at different ranges, set them walking/running/prone etc, add vehicles that cruise around so you can try out all the different weapons. This one is good fun and recommended: The Shooting Range 2 (@) - Other - Armaholic

    Also found this one but not tried it: Kronzky's Moveable Target Range

    The difference between you and me is that I would not miss.

    I homed in on you, then at the last minute thought "crap, i don't know how to turn right without veering wildly off. So just hoped the splash damage would at the very least surprise you!
