I tend to stack up alongside the door with my Assault guys and breach. When ready, I press V, which is the key bound to open doors on the PC.

The problem is that the doors only seem to open say 20% of the time. The only reliable way I've found is to mash Q then V repeatedly until the door opens. As I've discovered the camera angle seems to be relevant.

Am I missing something? Or is this a bug?

  • In my game, I have to click a door to open it - perhaps the location of your mouse pointer matters?

    @agent86 If you right-click, you move. You have to left click the door to open it. Jan 8, 2013 at 22:06
  • @StrixVaria, ah, apologies. It's been a little while since I played. Comment fixed.

  • I assumed it was a bug. V only works a small percentage of the time, so I switched to left-clicking with the mouse.

  • its definitely a camera angle bug, I find that repeatedly selecting the unit that's supposed to open the door and hitting v usually works for me

The position of your mouse cursor does indeed matter, it must be over the active character, the one who is opening the door. Hover over your assault soldier, hit v and watch the door silently swing open.
