Console Controls When Crouching

Platform: XBox One X (Not The New One)

Steps To Reproduce: This is repeatable anywhere at any point in the game.

Images / Videos: I haven’t provided any due to the nature of the problem.

Host or Client: I was host, playing by myself

Players in your game: Just me, by myself. (Prefer playing alone)

Specifications: XBox One X (Not The New One). I wasn’t sure what else you may need from
a console user - can provide more details if necessary.

Description: So, It’s a real simple one really… from a crouching position, if I want to go prone to quickly avoid the gaze of an oncoming machine, it is impossible to not be seen by said machine because my character will always stand first before going prone.

The way it currently goes starting from standing, to crouching, then prone holding B does seem a bit odd to me but it does work in the sense that it functions without limiting any other aspect of gameplay (that I’ve noticed). But when already in crouch, trying to go prone to avoid the sights of that enemy, holding B will make your character stand first, poking his head up and blowing the stealth aspect, THEN goes straight to prone, skipping crouching altogether. And just a little bit weirder, holding B while in prone will make your character go into crouching, then back into prone. Something about the whole set-up doesn’t seem right to me.

Now I had a quick look through the forum to make sure no one had beaten me to reporting this, and someone has, it’s just not been acknowledged as far as I can tell maybe due to the way it has been laid out (no details at the top).

In that same post someone else replied with an interesting answer as to why it may be, something to do with the way the pc controls are mapped out, and someone else said they were also experiencing this on the PS4. So this struck me as an obvious console problem and it seemed like it could be a quick and easy fix (I hope XD).

This was something I noticed right off the bat playing the game (since December last year) and I kept quiet about it because of the posts I mentioned before and knowing this was/is still being constantly updated. But alas the (Long awaited for me) February patch is out now and still no mention of this issue, so I’ve decided to create an account specifically for the purpose of reporting this issue and hopefully get it sorted.

**Sorta off topic here - I’ve never used a forum in my entire life (I’m 28 and not proud of that fact…) and sincerely hope I’ve done everything here by the book… I do at least know how unforgiving some forums can be if you re-post something already done or post in the wrong places…

**Just a shout out to the devs…

Your game is awesome! A fresh change to all the zombie apocalypses were all becoming accustom to. Honestly I brought this game when it went on offer with all the current DLC available for what seemed like a steal and I feel ashamed for it now because apon playing it I knew you guys and girls clearly deserved more for the efforts evolved in making something like this… and staying on top of it all… So yeah… hats off to you and keep up the good work!
