Anyone know how to control the RPG so the shot doesn't curve? When rpg's first came out I was ok with them, but now whenever I pick one up, the thing shoots straight for about 40 feet, then curves wildly, hits a wall, kills a teammate and I get booted for ROE.

I've tried standing or kneeling, and taking my time. I even make extra sure to just press the fire button so the mouse isn't jerking or anything. It almost seems like the more careful I am the more likely it is to misfire. I hesitate to experiment too much because of its importance in a map. I really only pick it up very rarely these days, and invariably get kicked within a round or 2.

Edit:Changed color. That wasn't funny. ~Azzkiker

RPGs are just inaccurate. no way to compensate for it.

thats the problem: you dont know that its going to curve right, it might curve left, or up or down or anywhere.

I've noticed that the RPG tends to curve greatly at short distances BUT after traveling a certain distance it curves back in towards the intended target, I have tryed this alot on SF recon, and if you fire it straight up it comes down where ever you fired it from so if you try that haul azz and put a wall and a roof between you and where it's comming down at.:D

Luckily they made RPGs realistic. When you have something propelling itself it tends to not have a flat trajectory. Anyways, they are suppose to be used for fairly short distanced targets, big ones at that. I don't think they were designed to be used as AP weapons...

It's a non-guided rocket, once you press fire, you have no control of it's projectary(sp?)
