[b]FIRETEAM CREATION AND USAGE GUIDE
Created by MIND BULL3TS[/b]
- - - INTRODUCTION - - -
This guide is to help all understand how to set up FireTeams. FireTeams (from now on shortened to FT or FTs) are an important part of Brink’s Team-play, although you wouldn’t know it from any tutorial aspects in the game. They simply don’t mention anything on FTs. Even though the process is remarkably simple, because there is no mention of it at all to the player, the system can easily go unnoticed. The key advantage to being in a FT is HUGE!
You can now use in game voice to interact with your teammates! Novel idea huh?
- - - WE HAVE AN ISSUE, BUT HERE IS A TISSUE - - -
“Public VOIP” (Voice chat with your entire team during a match and everyone pre/post match) is an option in the game, but it has to be manually activated by the server as the option is deactivated by default… The option that is left ON by default is “Fireteam VOIP”. So this is the more reliable way of having in-game voice chat…
But MIND BULL3TS! I want to be able to voice chat with my entire team! Not just my “Fireteam!”… Whats a Fireteam anyway?
Well I have good news for you, person who randomly yelled at me when I was creating this thread… FTs seem to be uncapped as to how many players can be involved. I say this with a little ignorance as the largest FT I have is 5 but I wouldn’t imagine them limiting it to anything other than 4 if they were going to limit it at all, since the team max is 8…
- - -FIRETEAM SETUP - - -
First while in a match press ESC to bring up the in game Menu, from there click the Scoreboard Button.
Once at the Scoreboard screen, highlight the player you want to start a FT With (See Exhibit B for a guide to choosing desirable FTeammates) left click to open that player’s menu.
Once at the Player Menu click the second option entitled " Create fireteam with #Playername# "
*note I used some image editing trickery to show the entire text of that option, it will scroll the entire length of the message in-game
This will send a Fireteam Invite to that player. Now using your “Fireteam VOIP” key you can voice chat with your FTeammates.
- - - JOINING FIRETEAMS AND OTHER ODDS AND ENDS - - -
I also know there is a way to request to join an existing FT. I know this not because I have done it myself, I literally have never seen a FT before I make one, but I have been “petitioned” to join by other players. It pops up as another message to press F1 and you “vote” to let them in. That being said I imagine the process is relatively similar to creating a FT, where the player clicks on a member of the existing FT and clicks something to the effect of “Ask to join Fireteam”…
Also, there was a setting overlooked by the devs for the Volume levels for VOIP in and out, the following commands will fix this issue:
These commands can be entered into the console directly during the game or placed before loading the game in your Autoexec.cfg file located here:
*Note If you don’t already have one, create a notepad file named Autoexec.cfg there, open with notepad and paste…
Well I think I covered everything. Hope this helps build the teamwork lvl in Public Servers.
