The first thing we would like to say right away is to play shooters on the gamepad for the first time is disgusting. You will find a series of deaths, disappointments and a desire to stick the gamepad on the TV. In case of valorant boosting choice you have the option for winning.
We have patience, comrades
Yes, the most important thing is habit. Many players are used to holding a mouse in their hands and therefore the first time (two or three weeks) will be difficult. If you decide to buy a console and play a gamepad, be patient.
Should we buy a gamepad with petals?
Custom gamepads or various Pribluda for standard ones are worth buying only subject to the availability of free cash. we started playing on the console with the usual gamepad and felt quite comfortable (well, apart from the first few weeks when we wanted to throw the console out of the window). Therefore, at first it’s not worth buying a custom gamepad.
It is a masthead for all consolers. There are many types of nozzles. We recommend taking high nozzles molded from rubber, as they are heavy and will give greater smoothness of the stick in comparison with lighter plastic nozzles. Increasing the height of the stick will help you more easily control the scope in the game and smoothly adjust the speed of rotation of the camera.
Most of these nozzles have “pimples” on the top, which absolutely do not reduce the sliding of the finger on the stick, so you can wipe them with fine sandpaper to increase surface resistance. If you sweat your hands while playing, they will glide less on sticks.
If you use standard gamepads from Sony or Microsoft, you usually have two options: use a regular grip or the Claw type of grip. As a rule, the Claw method is quite enough for a comfortable game. It takes a lot of time to get used to holding the gamepad like that, but then it will be comfortable to play.
The advantage of this grip is the ability to press the action buttons without lifting the thumb from the stick, which is responsible for the review, which allows you to better control the situation and manage the review in the jump / roll. The main argument against this method is the inconvenience at first, then you will feel very comfortable in shooters on the console or your PC.
General principles of the game
After using the mouse and keyboard of many, the gamepad is baffled. You should not be afraid of this, but the style of the game will have to radically change. You will have to learn to act more tactically, because the game on the controller thoroughly loses accuracy in aiming at the target when shooting at long range. The first time, and pulls to take long-range weapons and sit in the bushes on the far edge of the map – never do that. Sitting still, you will never learn to use a gamepad. You need to play more carefully, but not sitting in the corner. It is necessary to constantly move and go into the flank of the enemy, use additional equipment, in a word, play more tactically.
