Boundary – Operator & Gear Descriptions

All the descriptions you’ve been missing; all in one place!

Intro

All credit goes to maru !

Finding it annoying that this information is not readily available while in the customisation screen, so I decided to post a guide instead of just writing it down for myself.

Question marks (?) indicate things I just haven’t figured out yet.

Tips and Tricks

Very useful for the gear that requires a lock-on.

Option to rebind the ping function [Z]…there is a config file…

AppData\Local\ProjectBoundary\Saved\Config\WindowsClient\Input.ini

You want to edit the line:

  • ActionMappings=(ActionName=”Mark”,bShift=False,bCtrl=False,bAlt=False,bCmd=False,Key=<YOURKEYHERE>)

And additionally from @11.11.11

Rebound to middle mouse click. The specific entry for that is:

ActionMappings=(ActionName="Mark",bShift=False,bCtrl=False,bAlt=False,bCmd=False,Key=MiddleMouseButton)

I love games and I live games. Video games are my passion, my hobby and my job. My experience with games started back in 1994 with the Metal Mutant game on ZX Spectrum computer. And since then, I’ve been playing on anything from consoles, to mobile devices. My first official job in the game industry started back in 2005, and I'm still doing what I love to do.

    • Yeah, if you hit ‘ C ‘ you can see “Data Details” which tells you that compensators reduce horizontal recoil at the expense of increased vertical recoil. I think this is desirable because the vertical recoil is more predictable (it is the muzzle rise that you counter easily by aiming down as you shoot).

      • Oh damn I didn’t know they had the option to see descriptions now. Thank you for the detailed explanation and yes vertical recoil is definitely more manageable

        • Unfortunately it is not actual descriptions of what things do, but it is at least more info/stats to help build a picture of how things work.

          • A tip about the HIVE is if you want to know whether you can fire or not you can watch the bottom left of your screen and see if your pod has popped out or not. If it’s out it means fire away.

          • Having it on your right side instead of the left makes this even more obvious, it takes up more of your screen when deployed.

  1. Finally figured out what the ADS pod does. It’s a turret which can shoot down incoming enemy grenades.

  2. So it seems like the med pod gear is actually pretty useful. Using as a way to help you tank through a firefight in confined spaces where you know you’ll likely be taking damage, and can support some allies with the AoE at the same time seems to be the way to go. More useful for domination and invasion, me thinks, which also happen to be my fav modes. Also useful to note that the medic has an absolutely wild assortment in his arsenal, from the psr-c (sniper rifle carbine?) to the shotgun, and some crazy fast smgs in between.

  3. You can revive dead team mates in the Purge game mode.
    So far there’s no window of time you have to adhere to, and all you have to do is go to where they died and shoot them with med.
