PostSubject: Holding the X button   Fri Apr 29, 2011 10:03 am

Is stupid! It took me a while to figure out how to pick up a weapon I was pressing X and nothing happening so you have to hold X not just for weapon pick ups but for ammo, revive team mate etc. All the GOW and GOW 2 X button presses you now have to hold it in for a few seconds I can't see the idea behind this it's stupid if you ask me

It is not so bad once you get used to it. I don't think you have to hold in x to revive a teammate, i think that is just pressing x.

I've already figured out a trick if you are running to weapon to pick it up hold X just before you get to it and it will pick it straight up Very Happy

I'm sure you have to hold the X button also to revive teammates. I remember a part last night I was trying to revive a player and there was that much ammo/weapons laying next to him it kept trying to pick those up instead of reviving my team mate the X button should give the priority to the revive instead of the time duration of picking up close by ammo/weapons

I will have to check. I was playing last night and revived quite a few people and do not remember having to hold the x button. I should be on again tonight and will report back.

This is a good addition. You press x to revive a team mate and hold x to pick up a weapon.

Too many times in Gears 2 I picked up a weapon when I was trying to revive a mate.

Big improvement IMO.

Yea you don't hold X to revive a team mate but it's not so easy to pick them up if there is lots or ammo/weapons next to him/her

That's a detection issue and is the same in all the Gears games when you're trying to single out certain ammo amongst more than one dropped weapon close together.

see the game doesn't know that there are different weapons laying next to each other. so the game is doing what it's told

I don't think the new system changes it at all. Even though you have to hold for weapon pick up and just press to revive a teammate but still the game doesn't prefer to pick a player up over picking weapon/ammo up. There should be a priority where there is a downed player with weapons/ammo laying around him/her so that the x button revives the team mate and doesn't juggle randomly between weapon/ammo/player if you know what I mean

I don't really mind that you have to hold the X button but I wished in gears of war 3 they would reduce the time it take's to pick up weapon's or ammo or just remove it completely as it's a bit pointless in my opinion.

It's a good addition, it clears mistakes like reviving and picking ammo/weapons up. Wink
