    Default Airbrake shoulder scheme

    Hello, everyone!

    I've been wondering, if L2/R2 is the default for airbrakes, how many of you have been switching back to L1/R1?

    Also, what about the airbrake sensitivity? Are you finetuning it?

    Cheers!

    Brake sensitivity 70%, but I might change that, as I'm finding the PS4 controller less responsive than the PS3 one for some reason....neither of my PS4 controllers have been thrashed, so I can only put it down to a design difference.
    On a side note, if you drop your air brake sensitivity really low, it can make it problematic in successfully doing side shifts......... so test for a cut off point if adjusting air brakes.

    Traditionally the R1L1 button are digital and the R2L2 analoug, so in theory at least, the R2L2 'Should' give finer control.......I suggest people test and find out for themselves.

    I, and a lot of other old school Wipeout players only use the R1L1 buttons because that is what we learned on back in the PSone days, where it was the only option, plus I still use the D-Pad.

    You mean people DON'T use the Dpad? I can't function with the swizzle sticks. I've found the R2/L2 to be less responsive than the PS3 controller, but I would wager that the reason is because I'm not fully used to PS4 controls for WO.

    I still keep airbrakes on L2/R2, because I've switched left/right with L1/R1 (in PS4 Accessibility settings). You know, for blazing fast barrel rolls.

    I found Zone mode unplayable with L1/R1 as airbrakes so stuck to the default. In the PS1 games and BallisticNG you have a lot of control by pushing airbrakes for short periods of time but here if you push the button all the way down (seems hard to control on ps4 pad) it does almost an immediate 30 degree turn which is a bit much. If there was some way to do slighter turns with L1/R1 I'd switch back, I liked how they worked in the older games.

    I usually use L1/R1 for airbrakes but Im reading here peole are using thos e buttons to do barrell rolls which is a really nice idea besides the fact you need a lot of practice when using new layouts. Sooo Ill give it a try.
