I have a confession to make... I am terrible at this game. Very terrible.

Does anyone have some tips?

Rocket Launcher and Rail gun, practice them to no end. Lightning gun is also useful. Strafing is also very important. Mostly just practice really.

Practice, of course.

Good settings (correct mouse speed, correct network settings, "delag" feature for hitscan weapons[1] active...) may give some help, too (you may take a look to here and here).

Learning "strafe jump" technique (to gain extra speed) is almost essential. See http://openarena.wikia.com/wiki/Manual/Techniques

[1]To know which weapons are "hitscan" (instant-hit), you can refer to the table at the end of Weapons page.

I never want to be aggressive, offensive or ironic with my posts. If you find something offending in my posts, read them again searching for a different mood there. If you still see something bad with them, please ask me infos. I can be wrong at times, but I never want to upset anyone.
