If you’ve ever tried to fire a weapon with your weaker hand, you know how difficult this is. While there are some of us who can do things with both hands – they are really tauged – there are many left-handers walking on this earth and looking for a little representation in games, including in Escape from Tarkov.
At the moment all PMCs and Scavs are in the gloomy looter shooter of Battlestate Games right-handed. While this is not necessarily a problem (especially in a game that offers a competitive gunplay on the competitive FPS game market), but there are some in the community that would like to see the recognition of the rights – with the argument that this is actually at Help the tactical elements of the game.
This is a bit redditor, breadgonebad ‘argues, however, note that in particular for duos a left-handed and a right-handed PMC help to control areas in high-stakes situations. “I play many duos,” it says in the post, what you can read here. “My buddy is right-handed and we flow with the handedness we have. I follow the left wall because my brain thinks my gunship is on my left shoulder… so I go through the right side of the corridor. “
Of course, at the moment you have all the PMC’s right-handed people, not quite the same advantage when they follow the left wall. By having the opportunity to select your dominant hand – or have the opportunity to change the shoulders – give the players more ways as they tactically estimate any situation.
Breadgonebad also sets up a theory why it is “Left”, and argues that enemies do not expect to see a right-boom martmer. We are not sure how exactly that is, but it’s a festive – especially for a game that strives for realism.
Nikita Buyanov by Battlestate Games, however, has already considered himself. As early as 2018, the COO said in a Q & A that there is a “small way” to include links, but could lead internal problems as the team “all animations” should be created specifically for them.
In other words, it’s a lot of work for the development team, especially if the team focuses mainly to finish Streets of Tarkov. But who knows, maybe we’ll see the option to go left in the future.
