    Default Do you play claw?

    Just wondering. I've been playing for a week or so, and playing claw really does improve movement such as wallbouncing. But, my accuracy and my finger positions seem awkward and cause me to make moves I dont want to.

    How long did it take you to get used to playing claw?

    It took me 100 lvls of Gears 2 to get used to the claw!

    I seriously think it's the only way to play. There is just no other to do everything a player wants to do otherwise.
    Thanks to oldson59, Jill, Rishy, Cher, Lycan, *Zap*, mullases, jg420, and Flak for all the epic codes!

    No.

    Jesus, I can't believe people play like that!

    You mutant, x-men freaks!
    I'll check in every now and again but for the most part, I won't be as active as I was previously. It really was the Gears + people that got me posting on here in the first place. Unless Epic release an awesome game or something. I'm leaving this message because I'm obviously a very, very important person.

    Hope to see a lot of you on the BT Forums! - 11/02/2014 (lol)

    Nope, I tried alternative a few times but I just don't have the patience to get used to it.

    You could use a Razor onza, or any other controller with multi-function programmable buttons to do the same thing. It would take less time to get used to. I don't do it myself as I hear they break pretty quickly, but it would be a good alternative for those that want to claw without actually clawing.

    No, you basically use your hand like a "claw" and claw it over the controller instead of holding it underneath. It's weird.

    It's a way of holding the controller where your right hand forms a claw so that you can move the analog and press the a,b,x or y buttons while being able to use both triggers all at the same time if needed. It's very useful if you want to wallbounce and shoot, don't have to take finger off of the analog.

    Razor Onzas suck. They're flimsy, it feels like cheap plastic, LT and RT are very loose. Lets not forget they break really quickly.

    Back on topic - I was actually thinking about playing claw, but then I decided to switch from default to alternate...So my wallbouncing would improve without having to learn how to claw.

    Oh. Thanks for informing me.

    That is kind of weird IMO, but hey, whatever floats your boat. :]

    That's exactly why I don't own one, don't want to have to buy a new one every few months . They are supposed to release a more durable model sometime soonish, hopefully it's better than what they have now.

    Not all MLG players use claw style... Carills from Raw Talent and Flamez from Infinity hold their controller standard default. The only advantage is you keep your thumbs on the sticks. It's not that big of a advantage, it's not like you're going to rape kids left and right.

    Holding it the regular way seems to be working out well for me... as does sticking to default control scheme.
    I gave Alternate a few fair shakes.. just wasn't for me.
    The kicker was really that coming off of cover into a forward roadie run is 2 seperate buttons... that is just blasphemous.

    i played like that for halo then I got used to it. It just takes practice. Don't worry about how long just try it until you get it.

    Yeah, I claw. I actually never noticed, when I started clawing.

    Only negative thing is, that it keeps hurting my index finger.

    I've tried to do it and I can't for very long. It's uncomfortable and feels unnatural. It might work better if I had smaller hands.

    Dont need a claw when you play on Alternate.. Unless you just want good movement but without the wallbounce or strafe.
    No... The Forums don't make much sense...

    People complain to use the search bar, and when people actually do they complain about bumping an old thread.

    I always thought the claw method was like you hold it like normal but your index finger kinda claws over the A/B/X/Y buttons. :x

    But that's how I play, I dunno if its what your referring to though
    Triage applies for games too.

    I do. For me it's just really natural, I remember when I first started playing Xbox my friends would say I held the controller weird, but I never intended to hold it that way.
