Noob mistakes you still do from time to time

Prev1
Time for some light hearted funny posts, too often the forum is filled with "nerf this" "fix that" etc

So for everyone veteran to rookie, what noob mistakes do you still do from time to time, for me i have two

1) i usually in the heat of battle press the right analogue stick, so instead of turning to face the guy trying to kill me i swing a punch, guy gets an easy kill and im like "d'oh"

2) for some unexplainable reason from time to time i will run out into the open, and stop dead in my tracks to look around, its like ive forgot where i am lol, all of a sudden the screen lights up from all angles and im taken out like a turkey at xmas lol

So what do you all still do

    The worst thing i did was my team was about to kill maul i threw flash grenade hit top of door bounces back and blinds whole team then we all get wiped out
  • In HvV..can't think of the map name right now..but it is the one with the platfoms and trees.

    Anyways, at the start, i sometimes charge off right at the start..enter the big tree to get to the other side, forget about the freaking pit next to the entrance, and run straight into it and kill myself..my teammates probably think i'm a **** when i do that..lol
  • Number one thing I do by far, and it’s during gunfights with multiple enemies, is turn to a second guy thinking I had the first guy finished, but he’s still left on like 1hp.

    I'll some times have a mind blank and wait at an objective that's already been taken and everyone else has moved on. Until I realise and move on

    Getting stuck on stuff, particularly on Kashyyyk, but I blame the map design for having weird knee-high lips that you have to jump over.

    Indeed I do have a problem. It’s called “being **** at video games”
  • Getting stuck to objects and rushing too quickly for action when you should be camping for a while, forgetting to use special abilities or don't remember in which order to use them, dodging accidentally over edge and stuff like that, I am maybe too careless sometimes, I am just trying to have some fun.

    They are with flash, not as long and no damage
  • I've been blinded heaps from my side unless its another glitch
  • I've been playing since November and still play like I just started yesterday most times.

    Charging for the objective without thinking of where I'm at on the map, forgetting I even have abilities beyond a blaster, getting tunnel vision for that revenge kill in SA. The list could go on but I'll save myself the embarrassment. :D
  • Defending ion disruptors, i start staring at them for no reason until a bullet to my head brings me back to my senses!
  • Dying from accidentally running off a cliff, into a pit, etc.

    Occasionally, I accidentally press 2 or 3 instead of f2 or f3 when emoting, and waste an ability. Usually in HvV.

  • I seem to like walking or running past someone by about 5 feet then trying to melee them. Swinging blindly into the void as they pummel me. I spin the view around trying to find them and I just watch me get beat up.

    Yes, I'm in 3rd person lol.

    Accidentally melee ing when I see someone around a corner, instead of pressing the trigger (this is on PS4). It's normally because of shock/surprise and then panic as I rush to get my crosshair on the guy and pull the trigger, so my whole right hand just clenches and I press melee. Annoying that there's no way to cancel it.
    Also, although I'm normally pretty good at judging where grenades will land when I throw them, occasionally I'll have a bit of a brain fart and throw it at a closed door, then try and run through the door, only for the enemies to see the door open, me fly through the door, dea, and then the door closes again.
    Oh, and still not knowing which doors open on Jakku. I spent the entire second phase defending this one doorway, which I'd made my way to whilst being partially blinded by several flash grenades. No one came out. I then realised no one came out because it didn't open in that phase, for anyone.

    I change classes around a lot. I learned I have to fire my weapon at spawn to remember what I am playing with. Ive tried to burst a long gun more than once.

  • Switching from BF1 - I've reached for my side arm many a time. I've probably tried to throw a med kit (I wish we had med kits)

    Forgetting what weapon I am using and trying to hold the trigger (CR2/SE44 switch).

    I have a record for # of nades bouncing off of some clowns head that stepped in front of me (please make this stop DICE).

    Playing the wrong team. I am just built to shoot storm troopers in my DNA. But I've forgot what team I am on regularly (i am old).

    Trying to L2 only to go to scope when I didnt want a FREAKING SCOPE.

    In a 1 v 2 fight, switching back and forth, killing neither. (You know what happens to me).

    Hitting your teammate in the back with grenade bouncing at your feet is always comical. I hit r3 all of the time, so much so, back in the day when it was for real I had a special controller made with it on the bottom. I see a lot of shield mistakes. I hate when someone throws it up and basically saves the enemy.
  • Pulling up my crosshair at close range when i should just hip fire them. Gives them an automatic jump on me. I hate it.

    Wasting 400 battle points on the Hoth AT-AT.
    And respawning right before my team completes an objective, and I have to run twice as far to the next phase when I could've delayed my respawn by 2 seconds.
  • OH, my best one.

    picking a hero at a phase change, spawning out of bounds. Dying.

    or

    picking a hero at Theed palace door close. Getting stuck outside. or forgetting to run through the door, getting stuck outside.

    Basically anything you can screw up with a hero - I can do it.

  • (Lone wolfing) Assuming that because I saw some people parked behind me they would have my back when holding a position. This rarely turns out to be true.

    I do this as a hero ad nauseam.... It's like I'll never learn that we aren't all thinking the same thing - follow Vader to push the front line! Nope, just watch Vader take out a few of the bigs and then get surrounded. Thanks, guys.... :D
    In 1977, a single shot rang out at the Cantina.... No first, no second. Han shot - end of statement.

    Hahaha, yep, heroes or troopers it's almost always the same case.

    It's the absolute worst though when you think you got some cover while hacking an objective and all of a sudden you're taking the butt of a rifle to the back of the head. Hey thanks, it's not like this is something we needed to do peeps.

    - Forgetting which team I’m on after a round change and ignoring people only to have them shoot me.

    - Using the chat in a less than safe place and getting killed while typing.

    (I had the opposite of that once though - someone got very salty about me punching them a few times so were raging away ... when i found them and punched them to death again as they stood there.)

    - Replying to forum whinge posts about “immersion” or Solo vs. Clones content. :smile:
