Keybinds for using the Reel

Postby Sinister Poring » Fri Jan 31, 2014 12:15 am

I'm having difficulty pulling off the Vector Drop (which uses the Reel aka Mouse Wheel) because my hooks are set as the right/left mouse buttons. What keybinds do you guys use? Currently I've got:

left mouse = left hook
right mouse = right hook
Side mouse 1 = gas

E = attack
Q = Special attack
space = dodge

Mines mostly default. The only think I changed is gas=spacebar
I used my middle finger to reel. It's all smooth that way for me.
Your keybind seems really complicated x.x but hey, if it works, it works haha

I use complete default except switching T/R, because in the past, we didn't have blade changes, so I'm more used to R as restart, and T for blades.

I might be overthinking it @.@

People seem to like to use the mouse for hooks, so they can gas in directions, but it seems pointless, as I just turn the camera or adjust myself so I fly right originally.

Nah man your keybind's fine; a lot of people find that it makes more sense to bind frequently used actions that require both accuracy and quick-trigger/reflex accessibility to be bound to the mouse instead of the keyboard.

To help with reeling, I discipline myself to using just a single reel for kills. This also helps in conserving gas.

I'm gonna be doing up a tutorial soon on how how to sort and prioritize all the actions that you can do in the game, and then from there proceed on to decide where to place them on the keyboard and/or mouse.

Using one hook versus two hooks doesn't really take any more gas, if I remember correctly, from the research.
Using one hook and alternating helps gain up speed and remain flexible though.
