  • WASD? ESDF? What do you use?

    So I don't run anywhere near a 'default' setup when it comes to BF2. I've been talking to a lot of people and they tend to run the default setup with WASD. I run ESDF instead with the majority of my keys not being default. It took me quite a few hours of getting used to this setup, but ended up being worth it in the end.

    What set up do you guys run?

    Use pretty standard, but i interchanged all the voip hotkeys (incl mumble/ts), so theyre in a row sorted from most used to least used.
    I can't figure why or how people are comfortable using mouse keys for voip. Makes shooting and talking at the same time impossible for me.
    Myself i use the same mouse as you, got 'mouse4' addressed to M-map with adjusted transparancy, and 'mouse3' to Weapon3. Great for switching firing mode on the fly.

      I have mapped all my keys to numpad or mouse or close enough for easy access. I've been using more or less the same setup for 10ish years now.

        WASD because I'm too lazy to get used to ESDF, although I understand the increased key convenience.

        Just because everyone does something does not mean that it is right to do.

          Default WASD
          F = Map
          Q = Prone
          T = Prim. Rose
          Z = Alt. Rose
          Mouse3 = 9

          Not sure why.. just because.

            Defaultdefaultdefault

            I couldn't use ESDF if I wanted to, my touchpad gets in the way (Macbook Pro, what now).
            I use all default key settings as well, I use a G5 mouse with my local mumble being my close thumb button and SL mumble on the far one. And I have what would be left windows key as map (the one you get when you hit m by default).

              I generally stick close to the defaults, since having to bind multiple keys every time the profile gets wiped (updates, for instance, sometimes do this to games) or I buy a new game is just annoying.

              BF2 is one of the few games where I don't change almost any of the keys, save for a few concessions to old habits (Tribes 2 had U for global chat and Y for team, and that's a habit I don't feel like breaking).

                  I use the default WASD settings. Never really felt a need to change anything. On mouse I use mumble, teamspeak and sensitivity.

                    Default everything except coms. Squad, CO, Mumble force center and mumble normal are bound to mouse buttons.

                      Default except for Voice Comms: V = Mumble / B = Squad / , = Mumble SL / . = Commander Helps so I dont use the Commander/SL for every little comment. I have to think and stop before I use them :P

                        Default everything except for my comms. Mumble on my closer thumbbutton, and VOIP on my further thumbbutton. SL comms on my middle mouse/scrollwheel, sometimes interchanged for admin chat.

                        I've been using the lower tier keys (ctrl, etc,) for crouch/prone/things like that for 12 years now, i'm just "stuck" like that. Rather have the important cover keys be big and easy to hit than for example, being z/x/c.

                          I've used ESDF for over ten years; more bindable keys to the left for the pinkie and ring fingers. For example, W is my commo rose and Q is the SL rose; A is crouch.

                          For some reason I can't get the forward thumb button on my G5 to activate Mumble. That would really perfect my setup.

                            WASD, Ctrl-crouch shift-sprint z-prone. Pretty much default, lol.

                            I do have my VOIP keys set to VBNM,
