I don't see why not. It wouldn't help with seeing things you otherwise couldn't anyways, since the game only draws what you can see.

I thought you could only use it after you yourself had been sunk?

If the game allows you to do it...it is not against the rules.

Me too...but if OP had found a hidden "feature" the rest of us haven't then as long as it doesn't give him any battle advantages it's ok to use...

Although "free cam" indicates being able to see all over the map anywhere (as when you're dead) so I'm thinking OP is misinterpreting something else for "free cam" other than actually free cam...but if he can do "it" in battle (whatever "it" actually is...& w/out any illegal mods) then it's actually ok to do it.

Are you asking about "Free Look"? Hold the right mouse button down and swivel the view?

how to you get into free cam?

 

After I'm sunk, I can hit the "SHIFT" key on the keyboard, this will float my camera from the surface of the water and free it to be moved by the mouse and the WASD keys.

OP - Yes, you can use Free Cam during battle.

Everyone else - OP isn't talking about spectate mode or free look. They are talking about free cam.

There is a lot of confusion in this thread.

If you press CTRL+SHIFT+BACKSPACE your camera will detach from your ship WHILE you are alive in game.

You can then use the ARROW keys to move the camera around the map.

Your WASD keys will still control your actual ship while your camera is detached.

Is this useful? Absolutely. As an example, I used it just yesterday to look at which way an Iowa's guns were pointing before I came out from behind an island so I didn't get oneshotted.

NOTE: This will not spot ships not surface or plane detected, when you are detached, all it will do is let you look at ships that are currently spotted.
