Thank you it helped a lot. I feel like I will get used to mouse and Keyboard eventually but it will take time.
RT=R2, RB=R1, LT=L2, LB=L1, Y=Triangle, A=X, B=Circle, X=Square.
The mouse is amazing for tracking survivor jukes. I keep getting stuck on objects with the keyboard but hopefully i'll improve the more I play 😂😂😂
Someone needs come up a controller mouse combo 😂
When researching it I found that Nintendo Switch joycon controllers have blue tooth and can be connected to a PC. I believe that would be the best option because they are small and lightweight so it would be the most comfortable and they have extra buttons if you need them. Only thing is they are wireless only so you will have to charge them and might get interference. Also they got good reviews from people using them purely as controllers on PC.
Same I get stuck on stuff with Keyboard 😂
I just made a reddit post and asked the Quake veterans there about what you said. Most of them had no clue what you were talking about.
Keyboard is better because there are no dead zones. With a controller, you have to move the analog stick from one side to the other (meaning there is a delay). There is no such delay with a keyboard because you can instantly press one key and let go of the other by hovering with your fingers. This allows for snappier turns.
I even tested this myself in the survivor tutorial. With a keyboard, I was able to make more quick and responsive turns. However, when I used a controller my movements were less quick and responsive.
It's minimal, but yes you get snappier movement with WASD. But you lose out on the ability to move at any angle you want or change speeds which can be more valuable.
I doubt anyone would be using a hybrid setup because it's just not normal. Quake is also a highly twitchy game, DBD is not. DBD relies more on being able to hug objects which means you want to be able to move at any angle. I doubt anyone that plays games exclusively on PC would even have tried using a controller for anything, so it's no surprise that they wouldn't know about it. You know like, why would they ever try it if they never play with a controller?
But it is confusing seeing the xbox input, I can play normally with a controller with muscle memory but thank you for that
Ugh, now i'm going to probably buy extra joycons...my switch is currently being held hostage by gf so she can cross animals....
I would try it with whatever controller you have already first before you spend the money. You might not like it.
It's not minimal lol. I just tested it.
Also, those snappier movements are important. You can dodge hatchets, spears, and chainsaw sprints more effectively (just to name a few).
Lastly, you can hug objects just fine with keyboard.
Since I'm wfh I'm saving tons of money on gas. Even if i don't like it, it doesn't hurt me to have extra joycons. I would just take them to her, so her kid and kid's friends have more controllers for mario kart 😂
I tried with PS4 controller and mouse. The feel is so unnatural for a FPS veteran like me. I can't see how it can be better than M&K even with practice.
It's not lol. I just asked some Quake veterans and they said M&K is better. A keyboard doesn't have dead zones like a controller.
Again no one that plays exclusively on a PC in a high twitch game would even try using a controller. So I wouldn't take their word for anything honestly.
You can dodge this stuff easy with a controller too. You can also 360 WAY easier with a controller.
Quake is arguably the most skill-based game out there. If anyone would know, it's them.
Also, you don't have to take their word. You can take mine. I've got thousands of hours of experience with controller and M&K playing DbD.
When you tried to tell me that controller is better, I knew something wasn't right. So I asked the pros and they told me about input delay. I tested this myself just to be positive and sure enough it was there. I always knew keyboard was more snappy but I didn't consider why that was the case.
Yeah I don't see how controller + mouse could ever be better for FPS player like me.
Tell me why would a PC Quake player ever touch a controller?
I'm telling you that you get better movement out of a controller. There shouldn't be a delay, that has to be a placebo. On console there might be a delay but that's the platform. I've done game testing, QA and UX type stuff. Using a controller on a PC shouldn't have a delay.
I play with controller as survivor. As killer it has to be Keyboard and Mouse.
Because these guys have a lot of experience playing high-skill games. If a controller was actually better, they would know considering the competitive nature of Quake.
Also, since my experience isn't good enough, you can try it yourself. How many hours do you have playing DbD with a keyboard? You told me once before that you play on Xbox.
I have time playing games on PC and keyboard is just janky. And again, Quake is a twitchy game. There is more value to changing directly quickly. DBD is not Quake. It's more about being able to hug loops or doing 360 movements, both of which are easier with a controller. Not that you can't do it with a keyboard, I never said that, just that it's easier with a controller. Pretty much everyone I've spoken to has said this, if you don't think so you'd be the first to say that to me.
I was just told by a mod on that subreddit who said analog sticks have a natural delay, which makes movements less snappy. Multiple other people on the thread have also confirmed this. The mod also said they have never heard of anyone using an analog stick for movement in a competitive FPS game.
So, it seems to me that keyboard is faster than a controller. And I even provided you a few examples of why snappier movement would benefit you in DbD. Don't believe me? Try it yourself for at least a thousand hours like I have.
And you still haven't answered my question about how many hours you have playing DbD with a keyboard. As far as I know, you still play DbD on console.
I've had some friends tell me that I would hinder myself and never reach rank 1 using a controller. (survivor)
Is this true?
I can't get used to a controller, for me keyboard is much better. Maybe that's because I've been playing my whole life only on a keyboard and I just need some time to get used to a controller. I am working as a programmer and using a programming keyboard even when I am playing, changing every time to a mechanical one is too annoying. Here is a list of the best programming keyboards https://teleshoppr.com/best-programming-keyboards/, I am using one of these and I could say that they are good not only for typing, using them for gaming is also comfortable.
I use a controller, I prefer them
Controller for surv + kbm for killer
Not true at all especially for surv.
i played with controller one time as a survivor and i can tell you that i prefer keyboard. the movement feels really smooth but just pressing RB to interact with stuff and LB to do other things just feels too odd. i dont know how it is to play killer on controller but i can imagine it being easier (mostly cuz i just main survivor and dont like playing killer). but i love the skillchecks on controller
