How will this help?
This article will guide you on how to use the Shooting mode to play First Person Shooter (FPS) and sniper games a lot more easily and efficiently with the help of a mouse on BlueStacks 4.
How to use the Shooting Mode?
1. From your BlueStacks home screen, launch a shooting game of your choice. Then, right-click on the keyboard icon to open the Advanced control editor, as shown below.
2. On the "Controls editor" window, click on "Aim, pan and shoot".
3. Drag it to anywhere on the screen to use the capability. It is preferable to place the icon slightly to the right of the center of the screen to avoid tampering with the D-PAD in games.
You may change the settings for various parameters in the Shooting mode, using the Advanced settings.
To access these settings, hover your cursor on the key control for "Aim, pan and shoot". You will then see a gear icon at the bottom of the control. Click on the gear icon.
The advanced settings page will open, as shown below.
It has the following options:
Under the "Fields" section:
a) X - Location of "X" axis where Shooting Mode is placed.
b) Y - Location of "Y" axis where shooting mode is placed.
c) Start stop - This key used to activate/deactivate Shooting Mode.
d) Suspend - Suspends Shooting mode and allows free movement of mouse cursor while the key is pressed (Till it is released)
e) Mouse sensitivity - This value decides how sensitive the aim is with respect to the movement of the mouse. If Sensitivity = 1, it means the mouse sensitivity is the same as the Windows cursor sensitivity.
(Pro tip - Switch off enhanced pointer precision from "Pointer Options" in Control Panel to get more accurate aiming)
f) Tweaks - Various values used to optimize aim in different games.
g) Sensitivity ratio Y - This is used to set a different sensitivity for Y-Axis (Vertical movement of the mouse). Eg. Value of 2 = Vertical movement is twice as fast as horizontal movement
h) Mouse acceleration - This can be used as a multiplier to the speed of the mouse. In simple terms, the more this number, and the faster you move the mouse, the distance covered by your cursor will also increase.
Under the "Look Around Mode" section:
a) Enable mode - Used to enable Look Around Mode which is a core part of most Battle Royale games
b) The eye icon is then placed on the 'look around' key, if available in the game settings or user interface.
c) Free Look position X, Y - To define coordinates manually
d) Free Look - Key used to look around.
"Fire with Mouse Left" section:
a) Enable mode - Used to enable Shooting with Left Click in a much better way
b) The mouse icon can be placed over the key that is used to shoot in the game
c) Action position X, Y - To define coordinates manually
d) Action - Key to Shoot (Default set to Left Click)
