Southpaw/Tactical-sprint/crouch reversed

Why? Why change it? I feel seriously handicapped. Every COD has the same controls. But this new one, NO. How can this happen? Surely it is an oversight. Surely IW didn't mean it. Please, please put it back!!!

.

My gameplay is so frustrating, crouching when I want to run and running when I want to crouch. You must understand that my reflexes are set a certain way, one that I'm quite comfortable with. I was VERY reactive to any encounter. Now I have no instinctive reactions and am getting slaughtered. I feel like I'm learning to play for the very first time ever.

.

Default is still the same, so most people won't even notice. But for me it's a gamebreaker.

Fourzerotwo are you out there?

Its no different than when Cod2 didn't have Legacy controls for me (and therefore.. I had to buy a special controller that makes default controls into Legacu controls.. ala modded controller.. back when the name modded controller didn't mean fast fire crap..

I couldn't enjoy Cod2 or even GRAW1 because of this.. lazy developers.. especially when considering OPTIONS.. which is easy to program...

This game took 1 step forward in alot of areas.. but 3 steps backwards imo..

OPTIONS and CONTROLS are LESS than previous editions of cod (can't change separately music/ sound effects)..

Messing wih game controls....  Need a separate gaming APP that doesn't work just for stats... when Black ops had the Halo style Xbox Live Guide menu system (Cod)...

Atleast no one man Army Perk (unless you count the PP90M1 + Strike Package Specialists  6 Perk Killing machine)

I feel your pain

first thing i did is change to Tactical layout and its the same as any other COD

Umm actually when it comes to southpaw you are dead wrong JameGumb.

There is a problem with the SOUTHPAW control scheme in MW3 where the function of the thumbstick buttons are switched. Every COD since COD4 (where southpaw was first introduced) did NOT do this. So us southpaw players are crying. We are the neglected side of gaming. Always have been.

FIX THE SOUTHPAW CONTROLS IN MODERN WARFARE 3 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i have no idea on southpaw.  thats why i said tactical.  didn't even know there was a combo tactical and southpaw.

Southpaw is an alternate aim / movement control scheme whereby the aim is on the left thumb and movement is on the right. The problem is that the developers of MW3 have also swaped the function of the click action of the thumb sticks when using southpaw - despite the fact that COD4, WAW, MW2, BlackOps did not do this! So all the southpaw users who have been playing CAll Of Duty for years are crying because for us the controls are mixed up. Hopefully there will be a patch soon!

I know bro, I actually sold my Modern Warfare the very next day. I can't believe they didn't give an additional option. If they fix this, I will buy it back.  

yes we want southpaw and tactical how it was..im used to it but its not the same as it messes your game up..why did they do this god only knows

I agree, this sucks... I just bought it yesterday and I thought I was imagining things... I really hope they change it back soon.

i think they did it because people were complaining about the dropshot..its crap i want it back how it was!!!
