    I'm just curious to how many people in this community would be interested in "on the fly" switching from a 1st to 3rd PoV if PG ever ran across the idea. Three different sandbox shooters I've played has featured this on the fly mechanic via either the TAB key or MMB by default and its rather enjoyable.

    1) typo in the thread title
    2) iirc 1st person view won’t be in game upon release and devs don’t even consider to implement it

    ofc I would like to switch on the fly, we all know where we came from :whistle:

    Yes, I like the idea/feature. It's nice to switch it up every now and then.

    I would like that. I mostly play FPS in the other game - and that is what converted me to FPS viewpoint.

    I enjoy shooters much more in FPS mode...

    1st person would be counter-logic to having implemented armor slots for example.

    Plus this raises the question of how you would solve first person in mechs/special equipment and close combat (melee).

    I'm under the impression so far that this game is built around traditional mmo gameplay which is solely based on 3rd person.

    Now I am a fan of switching between the different perspectives, I just don't think that it has its place here in PG, based on what I've seen. And speaking for myself - I'd be happy if it stays that way.

    Cheers

    I usually play 3rd person veiw, but I sometimes do switch to first. It would be nice to have the option.

    I'd like ADS too please :D I tend to play in 3rd but the option to remove the hud plus 1st is where the best wallpaper screenshots come from.

    Would be a nice feature, not of top priority I suppose, but still.

    I prefer 3rd person when not in combat, 1st when in combat. MMB is a good way to switch (I'm used to it). But switching needs to be easy and quick.

    But how do you screenshot in this game? My print screen button doesn't appear to do anything. :(

    As far as I know UE4 already supports it, it's just a matter of implementation. Not really high priority, but it would allow us to produce spectacular screenshots and videos, which work well for spreading the word.

    +1 for 1st person option.
    Perhaps 3rd person view for mechs/vehicles? As for special equipment I don't know what that is so no comment. But for close combat the player would have the choice for either depending on what they like.
