I'll start by saying the controls for this are s***!

Anyway, I wanna use the arrow keys for movement but the game wont let me bind them. WTF? Anyone come across this problem and found a fix for it?

Been googling stuff but I keep seeing the same thing with comments about controls being retarded but nothing so far that says how to get around my dilema.

hmmph!

I think i'll just have to use the keys near the enter button. The game doesn't even let you map out the number pad keys either. LOL

yea ive always used wsad soo i didnt find that to be a problem. what s**** me is the camera view and how friggin awkward it is to turn.. Needs to have an option for First person view. The over the shoulder camera is nice for the cinematic effect, but absolutely horrible when an enemy is coming from your left hand side =\

Yeah fkn oath. I wanna shoot things not see the back of some c**** head. Like in MP games when you can't make the hud invisible you got this big gun and fingers in the way of the screen (hi tf2).

wasd sucks. I've always used esdf cause it's lets you have more keys around your hand for s***, but it's becoming increasingly difficult to rebind keys in games these days as they're usually developed for consoles first, and whoever ports them is inevitably completely retarded at making the control configuration screen...

I think the most retarded and completely not working one I've ever seen was in Halo 2 PC.

DON'T JUDGE ME! Anyway there's no logical reason to use wasd over esdf, so there.

Maybe if you want to actually be able to reach CTRL with your pinky.

Though I guess if you have mutant hands/fingers then that's not an issue.

Maybe those who can't reach ctrl with their pinkies when using esdf are mutants instead hrm?

Also, can't bind move forwared to mouse2 :(

I´ve got the same problem as discribed above. I´m a lefty myself so I looked at the EA Forum.
I found a statement of an official who said that they are actually working on that issue. A new keyboard remapping editor will be onboard with the next patch. What he didn´t say was when the patch will be released.

that's pretty crap for any modern fps imo. you should be able to bind any key to any of the available functions. i still bind mouse2 to '+strafe' :[
