Yesterday Alessandro "Stermy" Avalone posted the first installment of useful instructional guides for QuakeLive noobs. The Weapons of a Master focuses on the basics of each weapons.
Ohhh I love you rail! For me this hitscan weapon is one of the most skilled weapons to use in the game. Luckily for a lot of people, but maybe not accepted by most, in Quake Live it`s easier to hit with it. As a matter of fact, probably most of the people can hit at least over 40% right now. I have been mastering this weapon for years and use it in so many different ways and situations. Just so you know, I ZOOM ALOT. You don't see it from my demos or videos, but I shoot with railgun with my zoom ON 90% of the times. I use it from medium and long range, as well as in the air. There are so many ways to aim with it, and it`s not as easy as you may think. I have half of my arm on the desk/mousepad while I play, this lets me move and aim in different ways depending on the weapon or situation. With this weapon for example, I aim while moving mostly with my arm with smooth and slow movements, but I also use my wrist for small flick shots especially from medium range or floor positions. You will never see me doing crazy flickshots if I have the enemy in front of me, I believe it`s not accurate even if it might work sometimes. When you gain a certain experience and aim with it, you will be able to take advantages even in bad positions and let people take armors/mega and taking it away instantly, to then get in a better position or in control of the map for the next battle.
