# 1 FPS Mode for Away Missions

Thus far, it doesn't exist. Of course, the camera sometimes has other ideas

(Note: I'm not saying there should or shouldn't be an FPS mode...I just found this amusing. I am easily amused :p)

Actually, a lot of people would probably like it.

if you could some how magicly make the game engine transform from an MMO format to a FPS format it would basically solve the problem of Ground combat being the most boring thing i have ever seen in a game.

Just curious how this FPS view was achieved? I myself would really enjoy this view. It would greatly increase the playability of ground missions and make PvP alot more fun.

I was crouched with my back against a wall.

City of Heroes allows you to switch from Third Person to First Person view. I'm sure all it does is put the "camera" in the same place being up against a wall does.

I doubt very much that this would be hard to implement.

(Standard code rant, "everything takes longer then you think" rant, and any other applicable rants apply, of course.)

I've had this happen a couple of times and I agree that it would be a nice option. I like it better than the third person view.

Now, if my Boffs would just stop leaping around in tight quarters...

I have to agree that Third Person Ground combat really is not sufficient for this game. Also why is it that ground combat seems to lag the worst of all. Not so bad in open areas but it is absolutely horrible in enclosed areas especially infected I couldn't even play it the lag was so bad.

Hmmm, good suggestion though lets go a little further and perhaps we should have areas that have an sort or time of capture the flag or multiple locations in regards to areas or maps.

/signed for FPS mode.

FPS would fix those missions when an NPC follows you so closely it seems like they're about to enact a prison **** scene, and when you go to 'Aim' all you see is their butt. Especially that creepy Section 31 guy, Drake.
