Camera Ship Commands

Spectator camera becomes the default camera after player’s ’Mech dies: When a player’s ’Mech dies in a no-respawn multiplayer battle, the spectator camera becomes the default camera. The spectator camera selects the highest point scorer or the ’Mech responsible for the most recent damage and focuses on that ’Mech as the "hero." The camera includes in the scene the ’Mech having the most interaction with the hero. If the hero dies, the camera switches to focus on the ’Mech that killed the hero and that ’Mech’s main opponent. If no action is observed for the hero for 20 seconds, the camera switches to the current highest scoring ’Mech and its main opponent.

 

To view a ’Mech other than the hero, press ENTER. By pressing ENTER repeatedly, you can cycle through all ’Mechs currently in the game.
