Beam rifle auto aim

Why does the Beam Rifle have auto aim when unzoomed? I noticed this last week and haven’t been able to find anything about the reasoning behind it, or even if it’s intentional or not.

Does anyone know why it has non-scoped auto aim? Or if it’s intended or not?

Also, do people want it to be removed? Do you like it? Do you hate it? etc.

Personally I think it makes the Beam Rifle a bit OP, with no-scopes (or snapshots, if that’s what we’re calling them) becoming way too easy, which makes a player with the Beam rifle very hard to deal with at all ranges.

so far i’ve been 180 degree no scoped about 6 times since launched. honestly dumb the amount of autoaim on snipers.

Fairly sure it’s only the Beam rifle that has the unzoomed auto aim, not the other snipers. IMO the Human sniper is fine, doesn’t need any changes. The one hit kill binary rifle is a different matter entirely, but that’s a discussion for another thread.

Snipers have no need for auto aim, like everything else in this game that ramped up the auto aim tenfold
