    I used to always crouch in UT with my middle mouse button but now my middle button plays a more important role, switching to the shield and alt firing it. . . shame i forget about it when it matters though lol

    Might put crouch on one of my side buttons - will be hard to get back in the routine of using it though

      One of the best ways I have incorporated it into my style is to jump and then crouch just as I hit the ground. Think frog.

      Most people are aiming at your head or your chest, chest most likely since it is the largest part of you. By crouchin as you land you can not only avoid getting hit in the chest you also present the much smaller target of your head and you also are able to pause between moves which throws off their timing.

      Back in UT99 I avoided jumping alot, too easy to time the jumps and predict where I was gonna land...let the rockets go....NOW!!!

      Anyhow, with the new double jump/dodge combo and the "off the wall" dodge move now it is harder to do that.

      I notice the best DM players use the "off the wall"jump alot. It really makes'em harder to hit.

      The real key to be as unpredictable as possible.

      It was mentioned that lil nooblits are harder to kill sometimes by their "charge at anything and spam to oblivion" technique.
      I refer to them as Noobakazis, The Divine Dumbass.

      Welp, I have blathered on enuff. Gonna go to bed.
      Noobakazis, XD. Thats a good one.

        I use it for that, and for riding on vehicles. Mainly mantas though. Isn't 100% guaranteed though.

        Though it's mostly problems with a map that cause me to fall off. That, or a crappy driver.

Well we all know the reload time so i duck just as the enemy LG is finished reloading.... (and standing up right after that) and then headshot them myself.

            Yeah its kinda normal for insta players, well for me at least, to anticipate when a player fires and then pull off a move to avoid it. I have found no real benefit over doing dodges, stepping away or even double jumps are perfect too.

            The trick when facing such an opponent is to wait until they have commited to a move, eg I would wait until you have crouched and then you would be a sitting duck. In most cases I am of course waiting for you to dodge so I can have my mouse waiting for where I know you will land. The trick is to stay still I guess !

            Ive never used crouch either, I might give it a go. tbh it just seems more risky than a simple dodge, but will gladly give it a go...

              Same here
              When I stand still, too (to avoid being sniped while sniping). Crouching might be good to move your hitbox, but dodging also does the trick, and usually leaves you in a better situation when you end your movement (dodging is more predictable but faster)
              IIRC, it's not possible to do a headshot on a crouching players (it was that way in UT, at least)
