Tips[edit | edit source]
- For effective use of non-hitscan weapons, it is strongly recommended to learn leading. In short, leading means aiming ahead of your target so the projectile hits them at their predicted location.
- Moderate recoil makes fast subsequent shots more difficult to land when fire rate mods are used.
- The bolts spawn as physical objects at the muzzle of the Telos Akbolto.
- If an enemy is standing right in front of you, so that the muzzle is inside of them, you will sometimes not be able to hit, because the Telos Akbolto is non-hitscan and pretty long, so the bolts spawn behind the hitbox of that enemy.
- Also if taking cover behind a thick object (i.e. door case) you will not be able to shoot anything but the wall in front you if the muzzle is inside of that object.
- A great way to work with the semi-automatic problem could be to also bind your fire button to mouse wheel up or mouse wheel down.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The word telos means an ultimate end or goal, derived from Greek teleology, essentially the study of purpose.
- The Telos Akbolto was the first item to hold the "Telos" prefix. The Telos Syandana was second.
