Gear shifting, a new feature added to the series with Farming Simulator 22, strengthens your driving experience in the game.
We will explain how to change gears in Farming Simulator 22 in this article.
How to Change Gear in Farming Simulator 22
The gear shift mechanic is a feature that allows players to manually change gears. There are different gear types that are manual, powershift, and variable (CVT) in Farming Simulator 22, and the gear type can change based on the vehicles. In addition, some vehicles can be driven by more than one gear type.
In order to change gear, you should make sure that your vehicle’s gear is in manual. All you have to do for this is to go to the “Settings” tab and set the “Gear Shift Mode” manual.
The next thing you should do is open the “Keyboard Controls” tab in the Menu. Here, the “Shift Gear Up” button indicates your keyboard binding to gear up, and the “Shift Gear Down” is the keyboard binding to gear down.
You can change and customize the keyboard bindings as you wish. Then, you can change gear by pressing the keyboard buttons you assign.
Now you can change gears and enhance your driving experience in Farming Simulator 22. On the other hand, there are a few points that you should watch out for about the gear.
First of all, the wrong gear selection can affect the performance of your vehicles. For instance, if you shift up more than necessary while climbing a hill, your vehicle’s power will decrease and you will not be able to climb the hill. In such cases, you may need to downshift. Moreover, ground conditions can affect the performance of your vehicle. On muddy and snowy grounds, your vehicle may slip more. At this point, you may need to adjust your gear for the ground.
Finally, you can automatically adjust your vehicle’s gear and automate gear shifting from the “Gear Shift Mode” in Settings. In addition, if you pay attention to the points that mentioned above, you can drive your vehicle in manual mode without losing your vehicle’s performance or without any car accident because of a slip.
