Close quarters you dont need to aim{fire from hip}, medium range you only need to aim at target so you lose your Peripheral. Longer or holding down a spot or camp you need to zoom.

It's just the style and it's not for everyone. Just have to adapt to the game.

Just stick it out a little longer.

How else would you suggest doing it? I recall Gears of War having similar mechanics...

Standard aim is firing from the hip, LT aims from the shoulder, Right Stick uses Iron Sights. Its in different stages of accuracy, it doesn't make the most sense but it works well when you see the difference between your sight and the shoulder aim.

Hammerburst in Gears 3 works the exact same way, in this case it works far better from what I've seen.

please dont get it wrong i enjoy it i think the customization is cool and up above poster yeah it will take a lot of getting use too, for me having to aim with right thumb stick is a little bit rough because u have to have quick reaction time, Hip firing accuracy is really bad when u hold down the left trigger, I was holding the left trigger down and shooting going wtf why is this guy not dying and my aiming going all over the place then i figured out u have to press down on the right thumb stick but still in my opinion poor design choice, I find it would be alot better to make the left trigger aim and zoom and for the sniper just press the right thumb stick to zoom further

You make it seem like aiming with the Right Stick is hard. Halo does it, Gears does it. Plus it's a 3rd Person shooter having a 1st person feature that only a chosen few will really use.

That's what happens when you spend all your time in a CoD or BF game (no hate here, I enjoy me some BF and CoD4). The next Tom Clancy comes out and you think running around a map like a chicken with its head cut off is a good strategy, you know, since it works in both of those games fairly well. Want to be decent? Slow down and think.

I loved Rainbow Six: Vegas 1 and 2 but only played a very little bit of the Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter games and the one thing I felt about all of them is there were way too many actions assigned to each button. They felt much better suited for mouse and keyboard play. Every button on the XBOX controller has like 4 functions. Big learning curve here especially if you come from the school of Call of Duty and Battlefield, both technically and more so tactically.

Actually, after spending an entire evening and night with it, I'm more inclined to agree with the OP now, though for different reasons. Networking issues completely aside, this game is atrocious.

I seem to recall most (not sure if every game had it) of the TC titles having similar controls and i'm fine with it.

Although if you only play COD then you'll probably get frustrated very fast.

Want to play a shitty fps, go play Call of Duty. Ghost Recon isn't first person so what do you want to happen when you pull the left trigger in a 3rd person tactical shooter? If it snapped into first person every time you pulled the left trigger that would be hideous.

Some people don't understand what 'Third Person Shooter' dictates unfortunately.

@Gackt listen you aint gotta be a prick a bout it Gears of war 3 is third person and has a better Aiming and targeting system, Why make a the left trigger hip fire when you can just do that without pressing the damn button makes no sense thats all Im trying to point out, I didnt say the games sucks just said the controls are stupid, Why would you make someone hip fire by pressing a button gears of war 3 hip fire no button press just shoot left trigger pull zoom and shoot and I believe it was press right thumb stick to zoom further with the sniper...

hell even the 50 cent game had a good control set up

What are you talking about? You don't need to hold down left trigger to aim down sight, just click right stick without holding left trigger, your thread makes no sense anyway how can you possibly complain about this?

The controls are fine to me. I look at the game knowing that it will only be better and from the few games I have played so far, I'm interested in getting this game now.

Oh god, are you being serious?

This game takes almost every boring aspect from those shooters and smashes it together in to an even more boring product.

I love third-person shooters but this is a boring, ugly, clunky mess.

Everyone who thinks it's too hard to first press LT and then RS to aim for a longer range is just too fucking retarded. That's how all third persons have worked for years.

Just a tip: aim with LT for up to 10 yards, then press RS for 10+ yards. It's really not that hard, and if you're always too late with aiming and you're already dead, you're just doing something wrong, how would the other person have killed you before you even aimed? Well he's just better than you.

Will it really be better? I bet it's the same as the beta. It releases in like five minutes, you think you're gonna be playing a way better, super polished game? No.
