I'm trying to practice this configuration because the ability to change viewpoints and make quick turns will help me a lot. However looking at gameplays online, it looks like people can change viewpoints WHILE running at the same time. And I can't do the same thing without a finger over another or something... it's just awkward.
So you're using the L joystick (left thumb) and X (right thumb) to run. If you wanna change viewpoins, you gotta use R, which takes the right thumb as well, so you're gonna have to break the run, walk, then change viewpoints! Is there an easier way of doing this without such awkward finger positioning?
It may seem awkward at first, but I use my index finger to rotate the camera. I've been used to that since RE4. Personally, I'd love to have strafing, but I have to see what's around me especially in Mercs.
Are you sure about???? I rotate my camera all the time when I run so why would I even need to press L1/L2 and R1/R2. Left thumb is on the left analog stick, right thumb is on X and my right index finger is rotating the camera. Pick up the controller and try it.
