  1. tactical blind fire

    This has got to be a troll.
  2. Optic vs Non-Optic Mouse Sensitivity

    Magnified optics have a lower sensitivity for a reason... Imho the balance is fine but i don't see any harm in ability to customize sensitivity in your options seperately for hipfire and ADS. You can always adjust ur sensitivity based on whetever you have ironsights, a red dot or a magnified optic.
  3. Your CPU is weak, you'll gain more FPS with higher Ghz. At moment Squad is an unoptimized game, yes. It requires a strong CPU, this is well known info. As far as i know, Squad only utilizes maybe 1 or 2 cores of your CPU, which is why even though your "CPU usage" is low, doesn't mean your core 1 isn't pushing 100%. This is not a finished game, its in alpha and its made by a small developer, therefore its performance cannot be compared with AAA titles. If you don't want to upgrade your rig then wait for better optimization updates. Even with the best CPU you will only get like 70-100fps.

    Down for maintenance untill around 15.00 UK; 16.00 CEST, 17.00 EAST EU / RUSSIA / FINLAND
  5. Wirecutters

    And C4 for fobs :>
  6. Red dots have brightness settings, if its really bright outside you turn it up. If your dot is too dim you can't see it in bright light conditions. Some red dots automatically adjust to the brightness of the environment. I haven't personally ran into problems of losing the dot that much, you can always aim with the center. I recommend turning off eye adaptation on very bright desert maps such as Al Basrah, makes things a little less bright.
  7. Numbers instead of names on Squad members

    Feel free to give everyone in your squad a number, don't expect them to remember it, nor the number of someone else. Useless confusion, just use simple nicknames and its all good.
  8. Banned

    What server were you playing on?..
  9. Recoil mode

    Couldn't have said it any better.
  10. Of course, but i imagine we'll also have thermal optics for heavy vehicles.
  11. If you think the stryker is too weak then you're just not using it properly. I see members of my clan get +50 kills with it daily. 3-4 RPG hits already makes it the toughest vehicle in the game, giving it more armor would make it indestructible, unbalanced. I've also heard devs are working on an ammunition system that would prevent spamming grenades and such.
  12. Do mortars suck?

    If used properly they're worth using.
  13. Please no shovel melee

    Oh no the shovels will ruin the whole game! Stop crying about nonsense.
  14. IED not causing damage to the FOB Radio

    Taking out an enemy FOB with a single IED seems pretty OP, doesn't give them a chance to try save it. If this would be a feature then other factions would need to have their explosives as well, like C4.
  15. The purpose of that is for the RPG's to ignite prematurely so by the time it makes to the real armor it will be ineffective, won't penetrate as much. Again lets remember Balance > Realism. Gameplay > Realism.

    We're sorry to hear that. Please direct your complaint on the admin towards Nordic or Von Snoe. http://forums.joinsquad.com/profile/15056-nordic/ You can also find us on our discord at: https://discord.gg/pWyvxrg
  17. The pistol recoil feels awkward af as well..
  18. Magazine check

    So taking out your magazine and trying to weight it or someshit, is easier than looking at the bottom right corner of your screen? I'd prefer we just go back to the color system that went from Green > Light Green > Light Yellow > Yellow > Orange > Red > Black. Whatever it is that we had in V8.
  19. When you're both too scared too aim....

  20. GTX1070 owners topic

    Only if your GPU is running on 100% usage which i seriously doubt. a 1070 should be able to run 1.5ss on 1080p without a trouble. Only vehicle zoom or binos makes my GPU usage 100% with 1.5ss. Also which 3D mark test did you run? Firestrike?
  21. GTX1070 owners topic

    Hello there. My specs here: GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1070 X CPU Intel i5-4670k 3.40Ghz < OC'ed to 4.30Ghz Ram: Hyper X DDR3 1600Mhz 16GB Resolution: 1920x1080, 60Hz Settings: All Epic, supersampling 1.5 I use NVIDIA vsync so my FPS doesn't exceed 60. While playing in a full 80 player server on mumblerines i keep a fps of 45-60. Depends on the map and location.
  22. GTX1080 low FPS woes

    CPU usage is irrelevant, if you have a stronger CPU the single core that squad uses will also be stronger. Thus you get more FPS but usage stays the same.
  23. M16A4 and Leupold 10x

    They're probably going to give the M110 a better scope yeah. M16 if they impliment USMC perhaps.
