Is it possible to play BS 2 with keyboard?

 

Read on another post that HOTAS WARTHOG isnt to recomend for the BS 2.

 

Is that true?

 

Or does it work ok with HW ?

While a Force Feedback stick would be a better helicopter controller, the Warthog will still do the job quite nicely.

 

As for flying BS with a keyboard, while I am sure it can be done I doubt it would be a very enjoyable experience (at least in sim mode).

i tried flying it with a keyboard, it was really easy TBH, much easier than a joystick but the collective part was a bit problematic

Use a joystick and throttle of course!

 

I fly all my helicopters with a HOTAs once you have got used to it and if you have never flown the correct way its great. :)

 

Please don't use a keyboard unless you really need too, someone else will put it into better words but HOTAS are really fine and very enjoyable for BS2.

I tried it when I first got BS. It sucks. There's just to many controls to try to do at once. Rudder became a huge problem. Just get a Saitek or other "somewhat cheap" joystick. I know joysticks have become a little expensive of late. If you have a game port still, I recommend the Raptor Fire Stick. I picked up one for $9 a few years ago. EXCELLENT joystick. Has a rubber collar on it that gives you just enough tension for good control. Eight buttons and an 8-way coolie hat give you some good control options.

Read the OP and the third post, he has a Warthog.

Flying the Blackshark with just a keyboard is like eating a steak without using your hands. You can do it, but it will be messy!
