Hi there, I don't mean to sound sad but I really don't like using headsets when playing games, I've been told by many that this is a must have game and I'm really keen to play it (I would download it from PSN), but do you have to play this game with a headset or can you just play without?
Of course its handy for CTF or Zone games where you suddenly need to scream out:
"I NEED AIR SUPPORT!"
"THEY ARE IN OUR HOME BASE!"
But you can get on without it. The only instance where I really wish I had a headset is for when I jump into a warhawk, only for the pilot to aimlessly fly about in a PARTICULARLY hopeless manner. Being able to scream out "for christs sake land and let me out to cap the zones!" would be a bonus here.
can 2 get in the warhawk??? I have a headset an to be honest it doesnt seem to improve the game...only once have I managed to chat an team up managing to capture a zone once while the gunner watched over me...I think it really helps the clans and good players ( I suck but luv it...I die 20 times but the 4 or 5 kills I get give me a rush each time ;-) )
Yeah. Warhawks can have co pilots. I don't know whether or not hammering Square lets the other person know if you want to get out. Its interesting to get in, just to see how AWFUL some other pilots are. But I can see its useful for transporting people to zones on the arcipelago level at the beginning.
Don't forget, you can also download the manual online for people who have grabbed it off PSN. Places like avforums have threads dedicated to Warhawk too.
I can see mic being good for CTF. Like on Eucadia. The teams always mine the flags heavily. So by co-ordinating with a jeep going for the flag, you could use the binoculars to clear the area of mines, they whip in and grab the flag, drive away and you provide covering fire for the flagmen.
Love the game. Really have the hang of it on all modes now.
its bloody great aint it...I still suck though...suck greatly when in a warhawk...but I dont mind dying half a dozen times as the satisfaction from a kill keeps me going...creepin up behind someone as they crouch at a zone marker an knifing them is great fun ;-)
i have a very good phone bluetooth headset and i used that and i can hear other people speaking and can spk myself but there is a really delayed echo of my voice which sounds very strange i didnt know you had to press l3 i will try that and maybe fiddle with the settings again, personally i love the game without the headset but understand communication would be usefull sometimes. the jeeps have a horn so if you want some1 2 get in with you you just honk! also guys were starting an amazon warhawk clan its called AMZN please join all ranks welcome!
