  • Anyone use arrow keys?

    Or am I the only one, I see these amazing binds for wasd and players that destroy using wasd keys... I feel like a dinosaur. Any good suggestions for arrow binds?

    I thought of using arrow keys in a fps waaaay back when. I couldn't make myself try after looking at the blank space below the arrows.

      I used to use arrow keys back in the day... I'd suggest learning wasd ;)

          Well theres backslash, Delete, End, Page Down and the Numpad, but all that empty space around it makes it pretty inefficient.

              Or you could try getting a N52 and using that... Arrow's just dont have enough accessible keys to make for good binds. Did you try searching through Natural Selections Forum?

                  arrow keys are good for leftys. i'm righty so I use WASD, which also makes it easier to reach my G-keys. G15 kb owns.

                    Here I started this thread a while ago, thought it might be relevant. BTW I'm right handed and still use arrow keys.

                      You know, those keys can be physically moved to wherever u want. Of course, if you switch em, and you're a hunt and peck typer, you might end up making some very odd mistakes.

                      But seriously, If I were to use the arrow keys, I'd have to put my keyboard way up to the left of my monitor, just cuz of the ergonomics of the thing. I can't stand to have my hands so close together. Even for typing I find it to be straining. Aside from that, when you use the arrow keys, you're at a distinct advantage in any FPS, but especially HL mods, because of your quick access to other keys (HL because of the hard-bound slot system). You won't see a whole lot of leet fades using arrow keys. Which bring up a interesting point, aero, how do you manage?

                        ^^^^ right. Using WASD with a mouse is a more natural position because it lets you arms lie straight foward.

                          I use WASD but I'd really like to get used to ESDF some time (tribes 2 i believe used it)... Gives more options for easily accesible keys... But it is hell to try to get used to.

                            There isn't really any good reason to use arrow keys. WASD gives you a hell of a lot more buttons in close proximity where the arrow keys give you practically none. If you're a lefty, use 8456 on the numpad.

                              Buddy used to play Unreal using QWER(space). The (space) wasn't jump - it was 'right'; 'Q' was 'left'; somewhere in WER were back/forward/jump. Used to be pretty good at it and it saved his middle finger from having to jump between W/S. Of course, other than swapping weapons (convenient with this setup), Unreal didn't require any other real binds to play.
