Hello! For those of you who don't know me, I go by Ianir-srw in game. I've been playing GSF for just over a year now, and I feel I am now able to contribute a little to the discussion of ship builds. I also started recording and posting videos of some matches.

Ship Builds (other members of SRW have contributed as well): https://shadowlandsreconnaissancewin...wforum/8801272

My Youtube Channel (for the most part, I'll try to limit this to recordings worth watching): https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLo...H-D0ZN6pnIIkYg

Finally, SRW is recruiting pilots of all skill levels, and we're willing to help you learn the ropes. If you're interested in joining, fill out an application on our website under "recruitment".

Good quality recordings and it's nice to see recent matches recorded from my primary server.

Uhm....

If my eyes didn't deceive me, you were moving while in a gunship scope. That's something I didn't know that we could do, and I don't know how to do it myself. So... how do you creep in a gunship???

You can do that by strafing. Default keybinds are [shift] + [W/A/S/D].

You can also zoom with your mouse wheel for increased field of view and easier targeting.

Not only can you, but you should almost all of the time. The only time I would zoom in is if a lot of stationary or slow targets are close to each other and I want to be sure I get the right one. That doesn't happen much.

Yes, I agree. The only time I will choose not to zoom out is if I'm already centered on my target and it doesn't matter (and even then, it doesn't hurt to zoom out). Otherwise, it always makes sense to zoom out. The annoying thing is that you always have to *actively* scroll down to zoom out, *every* time you enter scoped mode. This eventually becomes reflexive, so it's not a big deal, but I wish the default was to be already zoomed out.

I knew all about scrolling to zoom. And it would be nice if max zoom was default.

Is there any use for strafing outside gunships? Considering the name it sounds like a movement mode that you should use during firing, which could have been something like increased turn speed to help to stay on target still outside of gunshiphide and seek there didn't seem to be any use of it.

Strafing outside of gunship is a mystery like the V button, where the ship starts to do a slow motion barrel roll for no noticeable purpose. Most GSF guides doesn't even mentoin the V button.

Strafing is useful on any ship. It allows you to put an object between you and an enemy ship more easily, it helps in centering a target without taking your reticle off of them, and it helps in circumventing objects (nodes for example). There are some other uses too, but it's good to use for these reasons alone.
