    Can lag or FPS effect weapon switch?

    I'm having an issue lately with weapon switch (didn't seem to have it a couple years ago..)

    For example I'm fighting someone when I have LG but maybe they have an LG or plasma but I have a corner to dodge by and could switch to defensive rocket to finish them off - but the rocket doesn't come out!

    This gets me killed since it throws me off. I have my RL bound to V specifically for this technique of pulling out a fast defensive rocket because my thumb naturally rests near it on the spacebar, but I press it some times and nothing happens.

    Is my keyboard just turning to crap?

    It's also not just the V key. Using a bind to switch to any weapon has occasional failures - it's just this one that always fails under pressure.

    Sounds like a key rollover issue. My old keyboard had a 3-key rollover limit, meaning only 3 key presses could be registered simultaneously. Strafing left whilst moving forward and quickly pressing on two weapon binds -- perhaps you wanted LG, but quickly decided rockets would be better, so you end up pressing both binds, one after another -- what happens is you get struck with LG because the rocket launcher key wasn't registered due to the 3-key rollover limit. It's why "gaming" keyboards advertise having a high key rollover, or n-key rollover. All in all, I think you're having a keyboard issue. GLHF!
    Nom nom nom nom!

    Ahh yeah. That could be it. Some times the PC speaker makes an annoying BEEP sound which means it's yelling at me for pressing too many keys.
