I just started playing and I can't seem to find any where to change controls for zoom control in either 3rd person or sniper mode. I read that you can use the scroll wheel to control it, but I use a three button mouse with no scroll wheel. Is there a way to change the zoom control to something else? Or am I just stuck with not having any zoom control?

Shift will zoom you all the way in and all the way out.  I'd highly recommend getting a mouse with a scroll wheel, though.  Sometimes you're going to want a zoom level in between min and max.

Oh ok so shift is full zoom. Ok that's all I really needed to know. I had played the beta on xbox and decided to just play it on my computer instead. The zoom worked differently with multiple levels in both modes that had three levels of zoom accessible by clicking the right control stick. I thought there might be something like that on here that is accessible, but if not, no biggy.

I'm agreeing with you way too much.   :trollface:

Shift will zoom in and out but it doesn't always go all the way in.  It depends on the last level of zoom you were previously in.

YES! thank you

There are multiple levels of zoom in sniper mode and in 3rd person view.  Shift just toggles between sniper mode and 3rd person.  I would also recommend getting a mouse with scroll wheel.  Page up/down keys require you to move your hands from other important controls, and being able to use all levels of zoom on the fly is quite helpful.

Just what is sniper mode and how do I get into it? Is it just the "zoom in" or is it a completely different setup?

It is the Zoom In.
