How to improve your skills - T-Bolt Edition

34 replies 410 views Edited Jun 7, 2013

I created my own little bootcamp for T-Bolts which I find make my friends and I improve our skills and I mainly only kept this a secret among my own friends so only we could do better but if some people always want an idea to get better here's mine:

 

I've honestly made this thing my own kinda passion. Something about T-Bolt training excites me like giving a dog a bone or giving a fat guy cake. Anyway my bootcamp exercises for T-Bolt are in Yemen and they are:

 

Zipline

 

Basically, only one person is the villain while the rest are heroes. The heroes climb up to the tower closest to them while the villain goes to the turret building and stands on top of it waiting for the other team to go down the zipline so they can shoot them (ok, this isn't mine but the others are!). When you want the heroes to go down the zipline, simply switch to your pistole and wait for them to jump on to the zipline. You can choose whether you want to do it out of 5 or 10 or 15 or whatever.

 

Mid-Air

 

You know that wooden structure right next to the turret with the treasure chest on it? Have the teams swap so there is only one person on the heroes side and the rest on the villains. All the villains climb up there while the hero goes to the Mag-5 co-op spawn and waits there. (If you don't know where the Mag-5 is, it's right next to the villains SECOND zone during Chain Reaction with the blue crate leading up to the main idol spawn during Plunder.)

 

Anyway you can go into cover or stand but I always find it easier to be in cover for some reason. When you're ready, fire your pistole then swap over to the T-Bolt and wait for the villain to jump towards the RPG and see how many of your friends you can get in mid-air.

 

Since Pistole's only have 12 bullets, it's best to do that test out of 12.

 

Timing

 

I've found this easier to do on Old Quarter however if you find another map which meets the same requirements, please tell me. Go to the SAS spawn and get into a position where you can see the entire area but you can't see to your left and right very clearly. Have your friends run past you, wherever they want to whether it be close or far away and try to time your shot just right so you hit them and not one of the columns.

 

Know that I'm still not completely sure about this location. I'm still trying to find an appropriate place.

 

Conclusion

 

While I'd love to do the rest of the weapons, I'd rather wait a day or so and make sure that this thread doesn't get locked by a moderator because there is already another official thread. Once I'm sure that there isn't an official thread I'll make an edition for the other guns. Also if I think of any other excercises (yeah, I don't know how to spell excersises :/) I'll be sure to add them to here. Hope this helps and if you have any other suggestions then comment below and I'll add it to the list if I think it's pretty good Smiley Happy

The only thing I can add is not to be too careless with the gun, its not like the other power weapons which can give you easy kills without little work, so dont run around like a headless chicken and right in the centre of gunfights.

 

Other than that, good job with this. Smiley Happy

The T-Bolt is by far my favorite gun in Uncharted 3.

Lol XD niice
It is the only power weapon making u work for the kills Smiley Tongue
I'm awful at sniping here, but am pretfy good in other games.

I found it far easier practice quickscope/dragscope in black ops2 with the ballista since its scope-in-time is similar, then head back to u3 and do the same thing but at a much slower pace.

Its like shooting ppl running through quicksand after that XD

So if u have blackops, try that. Helped me alot and it makes it feel like everything is in slow motion. Your headshot count with the dragon/tbolt will also go up dramatically Smiley Surprised

I typically suck with sniping when it comes to aiming the reticle from a distance, but, I recently tried out quick scoping and that's been way better. In a TO game (versus mostly noobs to be honest) I picked up the t-bolt twice for a total of ten kills.

Next time I used it was in a game of plunder, I picked it up and quick scoped it 3 times for 3 kills. Then I died Smiley Sad

You don't need skill for a T-Bolt. It's just that easy.

Threads don't get locked/deleted unless it's a very old thread, or there is some porn in it. Anyway, i like this. It's only about Yemen so the title confused me. And i know it takes time to do a helpful thread. But anyway (again Smiley Very Happy), this is good... for new players, or if you are playing against new players. When does a good player (aka as tryhards in this forum...) use a zipiline in Yemen? Or climb any of the towers? I'll give a tip, a good tip. To get better with the T-Bolt just use the Dragon Sniper. Even if you know you're bad/gonna get your **bleep** kicked, practice makes you perfect, or close to perfect. Also, i'm pretty sure most people who replied to this thread didn't even read the OP, only the title. Classic. But yeah, sorry for the wall of text, i know you hate it, i too hate it. But i'm on iPad.

Sounds like most people read it, I did. But didn't have much to say about the specific exercises.

But I actually just played some plunder at the Syria map and got a ton of t-bolt kills by aiming from the spawn point. So I'm making progress. I would definitely be down to practice more if others are interested in doing that kind of thing.
