Joel doesn't manually reload?

5 replies 1741 views Edited Jun 8, 2013

I just played The Last of Us Demo after forgetting about it from the swarm of games that have been coming in since its Uncharted 3 video on the multiplayer. I like the controls except...is it not possible to reload on your own? They make survival tactics seem very important in this game. One of the most important things is to make sure you got a full clip so you should be able to reload if you have extra bullets and you are in a room without enemies. Maybe I was reading my ammo wrong. I'm not sure, but make sure you can reload on your own!

I havent played the demo, and refuse to watch footage. could someone kindly answer my follow up ? :smileyhappy:

 

if you reload while not aiming...doesnt that affect your ability to shoot a guy in the face, or aim arrcurately and quickly? I have concerns.

 

I swear in one part of either the MP Reveal or the Leaked footage, a chick seemed able to reload WHILE aiming at the enemy.

 

this control choice seems strange. please put my concerns to rest!

The controls could be different in MP.... but in SP, the only way to reload to by pressing R1 and nothing else, and this does not affect your ability to aim whatsoever. If you try to reload while aiming, you will just fire the weapon (L1 + R1) - however if you're aiming and firing, and finish off the clip, you will automatically reload if you have ammo, so that's likely what you saw happen.

Yup it's R1, I'm so use to reloading with square so in the demo I would keep doing a melee attack with Joel. lol
