NOOB----Am I missing something.....?
First of all - don't flame the noob! This is a legitimate question.....How is it that I continually get fragged with one shot? I understand different weapons have different levels of fatality - but this seems crazy! I have been told just to keep practicing - which I am! But there has got to be something that everyone else is doing that I am not. I would appreciate anything that anybody can fill me in on.
Again, I know it sounds like a rediculous question and I do not want to sound like a complete idiot...
Thanks all! :up:
you need to learn to use all the weapons in different combat types, example Flak > close combat. And make sure you never stand still, because when you stand still you are easy to kill.
Headshots with the lightning gun are one shot kills.
have you noticed if you are low on health when you get killed?
To be honest - I'm still getting used to the HUD - I can not say for sure. I do however know that as soon as I re-spawn - BANG! I'm back out. Granted those are probably levels and servers way beyond my ability - but I figured what the heck, right?
Essentially, it looks like a practice thing then. I was just wondering if maybe there was a setting our some type of "auto sight" feature I had not seen to zone on on someone right away.
Might anyone know of some particular server for noobs? I am still doing Instant Action with the bots - but it would be nice to play against other noob's too!
Thanks again all - it is forums like this that make gaming fun! Well, I guess blowing someone to shreds is pretty cool too!
Im not sure of a particular n00b server. Maybe look for one where the scores are really low, or where everyone else has a higher ping than you, to give you that advantage.
I suggest using the SuperBots mutator, for botmatches.
It makes the bots move more like humans and use all the jumping ability.
You might be more prepared for online matches with real people if you practice with it.
Hold on, let me get a link for you...
here it is:
Current version is 2.2
That makes sense. Thanks!
So when I get instant death like that - it is just everybody else being that good...
I will just keep on practicing then - I appreciate the link!
Sometimes, if your lagging real bad, it can seem like your dying too fast. (i hate that)
Hahaha - perhaps everyone is using an aimbot then. That would be rotten luck to be repeatedly playing on servers where everyone is cheating

cheating is not as rampant in ut2003 as in games such as cs (yet at least)
also, you could be playing instagib (look for the skull icon in the server browser.)
If your playing on a server that is not useing random spawn points people that are familiar with the normal spawn points can snipe you. If your looking for a place to download lots of different types of files for this game one of the best sites I've found is http://www.ut2003hq.com/ there's even a Spawn Protector mutator there. And if you haven't done it yet download the latest patch 2225 and the 2 bonus packs 1 from Epic, 2 from Digital Extremes. You'll need them if you plan on downloading the ChaosUT2 game type and others.
YES, you MUST get the two bonus packs, and the latest patch.
Essential stuff, really.
if u still cant beat those strong people on the net i can go on and help you thorugh the game itself. i found that is the best way to learn. that and spectating. if you want to just e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
server fo n00bs
i am not aware of any n00b servers. however if you come to the Anarchists United server we are generally good at helping anyone imporve if the ask us.
It helps if you move around a lot. standing still makes an easy target, practice using all of the weapons and use dodge and jump more. GOOD LUCK!! :weird:
