Among the new features in Newgarden is one that is better explained with pictures. It is a discreet change but it makes a huge difference in terms of gameplay. See for yourself…
I Came to Get Down
Why are we making such a big deal about it? If you’re wondering, you’re probably one of the players who never use the “prone” key (set to Z by default). If so, I strongly recommend that you give it a try, for example the next time you find yourself completely outgunned and the only “cover” available is grass. Besides, now that we’ve removed the need to press a second key when you want to turn, it’s simple and intuitive, and it can save your life!
There’s another good reason to lie flat on the ground, besides hiding: when prone, your aim increases in precision. Just compare your crosshairs when standing, crouching and prone, you’ll see what I mean.
