i see a guy and try to shoot him but nothing fires if i go forward and left at the same time and shoot too. But if i just stay in one spot and turn left (no forward) then everything is fine. Please help me.

This is because you have a ghosting keyboard. Most computers traditionally come with a ghosting keyboard, as they are designed for daily typing, not gaming, and thusly are unable to take in more than one or two commands at once. If you are using a laptop, there really isn't anything you can do to fix this. Though if you are using a PC, purchasing an anti-ghosting keyboard will most likely resolve your issue. An anti-ghosting keyboard will register numerous keystrokes executed simultaneously.
GOOD, I'M SATISFIED

You can shoot, move turret and press Left/Right keys at once but not Up/Down keys. My laptop's keyboard is exactly like this. But you can try connecting a separate keyboard through USB port.

This is a hardware limitation of your keyboard. Unfortunately, the only solution is that you must purchase a better keyboard that does not have this limitation.

To be more specific:
In order to save money, keyboard manufacturers often put many keys on the same "circuit" of sorts within the wiring of the keyboard. This prevents multiple keys in the same region of the keyboard from being pressed simultaneously. Sometimes it even prevents more than 2 keys at all from across the whole keyboard being pressed at once. Often the shift, ctrl, and alt keys are not within this limitation, so you can hold shift and press 2 other keys at once and it will still work fine.

Even high-end gaming keyboards often have a similar hardware limitation, although the cap is much higher so that it is unlikely to be reached during the normal course of gaming.
but it doesn't make sense. why am i able to go forward+turn right+shoot all at the same time but i can't go forward+turn left+shoot at the same time. the only difference is that i am turning left but if my keyboard can't handle that, why can it do the same but just turn right instead of left?
It's probably from keyboard layout; ghosting effect.

how i can get non ghosting keyboard, should i buy any "Gaming Keyboard"?
