    Default Wallbouncing

    So I'm trying to learn how to wallbounce effectively and get better at it so I can use it in combat to get the upper hand. Any tips/things I should remember to do to be better at it? Help would be appreciated..

    try not to be predictable, a lot of people wallbounce a lot but it can be very predictable so they die easily, mix it in with a good strafe and you become a very very hard target.

    Should only really use it to evade multiple people. 1 on 1 it's more effective to strafe.
    The left stick is more important than the right in determining whether you'll go to the wall or not. You don't have to look at it to move towards it, so long as your left stick is going in the correct direction.

    Like people have said, don't be predictable. A speedy wallbounce mixed with some drunken strafing (ItsVefy on Youtube has a vid) makes you impossible to hit. Unless you lag...

    When wall bouncing effectively, the goal is to cancel out of cover in mid slide, so you are barely hitting the wall. It's also smart to mix it up, don't just bounce side to side. When bouncing side to side, someone with a good strafe can easily lead their shots where you are going to bounce. So to confuse enemies bounce to the same side sometimes, and a healthy mix of strafe and wall bouncing is going to give you the best results.

    The most important advice is to practice, go to a map in private match with a good set of walls to bounce on like old town's pistol spawn. This is the best advice I can give, Im not a pro wall bouncer or anything, but am capable of using it in an effective way to get kills.

    - Watch youtube videos, really what I can say lol.

    - Play claw, I'm a really superb wall bouncer, and that's what I use. Not being a dick or anything, but I'm really good at bouncing.

    - Like everyone else stated, don't be predictable. Majority of wallbouncers 'Zig Zag' when grabbing in-between walls. My tip? There's many alternatives, changing grab lengths, wall distance, but personally grab a wall twice and mix it up.

    - Don't be afraid of grabbing walls from a long distance. Many youtube videos display breaking mid grab, but grabbing long walls are useful as well. Being behind the opponent & more. Gears 1 bounce is still effective.

    -------

    Good luck!

    What?? Gears 1 Wallbouncing is immensely different than Gears 3

    As for the question for tips, just try to mix in the strafe as well. If you can mix in both, your movement will be pretty great.
    Thank you Epic for making one of the most insane games I've ever played!!!!

    Not everyone who is good at wallbouncing plays 'Claw' and so I wouldn't really consider that as a tip/helpful hint....plus it takes time to play 'Claw' and so doesn't really help him in the short term.

    Don't be predictable in battles....mix it up between strafes and wallbounces....

They're not the ones who are going to be buying all of the DLC and still playing the game 9 months after launch. That would be your hardcore fanbase, the one you've alienated with your changes to the point of no return. Remember them? Don't worry, you will soon enough.

    I didn't state everyone who was good played claw, I was just making a suggestion. It's a playstyle that benefits & since he's learning now it could be considered a option.

    Only do it when there's two or more people, and remember.. The best strafer can always beat the best wallbouncer..
    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.

    Use the alternate control scheme. It separates the roll (evade) and take cover actions into two separate buttons. "A" is take cover (or wall bounce) and "X" is roll/evade. Pickup weapon is switched to "Y" and point of interest is activated by clicking the right stick.
    This keeps you from accidentally rolling during an intense moment in the game.

    No that's wrong good wall bouncers win most times. It's like strafing but instead of stepping Fromm side to side you slide

    You're wrong too. It depends who is better in that situation.

    Sometimes I can beat a bouncer with a good strafe, sometimes I can beat a strafer with a bounce. It's all about who is bouncing and who is strafing.

    If he doesn't know how to wallbounce at all I doubt telling him to play claw is going to help...

    You can use it 1 on 1 still. In fact I think it's more effective than strafing (once your fast enough)

    I'm not the best at this but scrounging the forums made me see that your sensitivity settings greatly affect how good you can wallbounce.

    Try checking our arCtyC's thread for this: http://forums.epicgames.com/threads/...ted-12-18-2011

    But after that, it's just PRACTICE, PRACTICE, and more PRACTICE.

    A good practice site is the park spawn area (not sure what it's called) at Raven Down. Try Zig-zagging from the spawn area to the middle fountain area to the end of the building wall near the Raven while wallbouncing.

    What. The best guys wall bounce an smash straffers. Yeah sure occasionally straffers will win but then so will the snub vs shoty that doesn't mean the snubs better.
