Can we PLEASE turn off Aim Assit in consoles?


#1

This is seriously killing the game for me. I try to move left only for my aim to move right.

I line up a shot only to have a runner move across the screen and suddenly I’m aiming at a wall.

I’m running in a bunker and suddenly I’m staring at the floor because it locked into something on a lower floor.

I try to shot a tick but I can’t because the aim assist is locked onto a different tick and I can’t unstick the aim.

Nothing kills a game that relies on precision aiming like losing the ability to control where you aim.

We don’t have that on PCs (at least I think we don’t!), but you should be able to turn it off! Is it not a menu option like music?


#3

Unfortunately no, there is no option to disable it. At the moment it is mandatory.

I don’t have any aim assist issues… I didn’t even think we had any tbh. xbox

Agree with you to the utmost @Gaignun989 . It’s most noticeable when tracking Runners or Hunters that begin to strafe you or leap past you. The crosshair tends to stick to them as you rotate, but reduces your ability to aim at specific components or effectively lead shots. Don’t notice it so much at range because you’re initially fighting weapon and breathing sway.

I also believe what intensifies the frustration is that the sensitivity on gamepad between Camera and Aim isn’t quite optimized; the values don’t transition well when you leave aim and move the camera, then attempt to aim again.

Here’s to hoping they at least take a look at it again :grinning:

Haven’t noticed any assist on PS4. Maybe it came with August update. I have only tried the game a few minutes after the latest update. (To much lag and empty ammo boxes for clients so waiting for next update.)

I only notice it a few times it will auto aim on a down robot almost holding the aim. Or most time pull the aim. Never on a mobile enemy.
PS4 pro-heater unit lol.
It’s only done that a few times to me. A few weeks ago i was fighting 2 harvester. A dozen runners. And 1 tank in a town south end of the snow region off the coast. Heavily bogged the frames down and it did that slow enough to let me grasp it snapped to a prior down hunter.

Hopefully someone with some authority will see this topic and bring it to their attention.

Its just weird that it has no effect when aiming down the sights but any other time I can make my camera turn 90 degrees without touching the right stick.

I’m on Xbox and I’ve never had an aim assist issue. Tickers remain my most hated enemy, because they’re just so damn hard to hit, and I have on occasion wastes entire clips just trying to kill the little bastards. Although if there is an issue, I’m sure just adding the option to disable it would be a good solution.
