How in the world do you stabilize the M-24 while firing? It is all over the place with the breathing and I don't know how to stabilize it.

Any keys I can use to slow down the movement?

Extend the bipod...like you do on the SAW or anything else. I forget the key but it's only useable while you're prone, really. Shooting while standing up isn't good, shooting while crouching is only marginally better. Shooting while prone is ok, and shooting prone while the legs are extended is rock-solid.

THANKS!

I don't know which key that is either....

Guess I'll have to experiment.

become a nra hi-power competitor. You'll increase your skill pretty quick, if you practice.

Breathe.
Relax.
Aim.
Squeeze.

You want to fire during the natural pause, right after you exhale.

I have not played the game, but I imagine that all the variables of shooting can't possibly be programmed and usable.

Breathe slowly.
Relax.
Aim the reticle.
Slowly sqeeze the controller button.

Focus man, focus!

They come as close as any game I've seen.

Breathing is a factor, the guns (Esp the sniper weapons) 'wobble' if unsupported for too long, you have to use your irons to hit with the M16 or M249 (well, the 249 shoots tracers, but that method wastes ammo), etc...

No, it's B-R-A-Sigh-Squeeze - Means you let a little of the previous breath out. Just a little. That was as taught to me by several senior folks. Not the least of which was one who served with Patton on the Mexican Border Campaign. Where they took bolt rifles seriously. Among his war stories was talking of an argument of old fuds in German WWII bad mouthing Garands and speaking of "plinking' Mexicans and Germans at ranges of 800 yards or so with Springfields. That led to a young non-retread officer the next day "plinking" a German at around 800 yards or so to show that it could in fact be done with an M-1. but try it , it works.

I mean to try the little sigh while squeezing. Plinking Mexicans and Germans at 800 yds is a little Non-PC these days.

Yep it's the "H" key. Just remember 'H' for Harris Bipod. See ya on the battlefield.
