Poll: Do you accidentally fire the port guns each time a missions starts out at the wheel? (62 votes)

Yes 40%
No 60%

I can't be the only one who hits R2 to "accelerate" the ship forward and ends up firing the port guns by mistake.

Am I?

One time I sank another ship that was in port. No one seemed to mind.

A makes it go. A boat is not a car.

I do it every dang time

I've sunk a few random boats doing that. Doesn't help that R2 is also the run button.

The controls are right there in the corner of the screen, yo.

Actually, I'm using R2 because it's the run button, not because of car controls.

Out of instinct from using it to run I do it all the damn time.

I didn't do it in my short time testing it. But now this thread will leave the seed in my subconscious and when I get around to buying the game It'll have grown into an unconscious habit.

Thanks a lot bro.

I've never done it.

Sometimes. Trying to let go of the wheel right after a diving bell sequence annoys me way more though.

Not each time, but yes I've also done the "right trigger to accelerate" thing more than I'd like, usually when it's late and I start nodding off.

Well, sometimes. I'm usually good at keeping my frontload in...
