Console: XBOX ONE
Overall aim experience: Weird/bad
I kept reading posts(reddit and here) about the aiming general problem. I think i have come to a conclusion, and that is that the aiming is different between different consoles and different PCs.
What do i mean?There are people stating that aiming on consoles is bad and then there are others that say that its fine.I am playing on an Xbox ONE and the aim is terrible, the same applies for some of my friends which none of them plays on a series X/S, but those playing on a series X/S most of the time seem to be fine with aiming. So i think those on series X/S have no problem with aiming, and that is the solution on the threads were people fight over aim assist and aiming problem, some of them are series X/S players were the aim/aim assist is good and some of them are old gen players were aiming is mostly bad, no-one understands each other though because both state that they are console players most of the time and not which console they actually use.
Then there is the same problem on PCs(M&K, controller) some pc players say that the aim is smooth af and some state that its junky and they even prefer a controller to play with. What they dont state is what their pc is capable of, as the series X/S and old gen gap is.Some pc players have high end gaming pcs others not and that i think is what is causing all this regardless of input device.
We have seen m&k player’s complain about aiming, but we have seen controller players complaining too. I think the problem differs in each situation. And i feel like the aiming experience is different in each (console/pc), its different in a pc w/mk, its different on a pc w/controller and different at old gen console w/controller and also different at a series X/S w/controller.
Lastly i would like to state that this is something i have never seen and experienced with a game.First of other AAA shooters(apex,cod,older Halos etc) never had such a divided community about an aiming issue and this indicates that the problem exists, it has not to do with aim assist or anything, it has to do with weird aiming overall for some and for some not, and this causes the confusion too. If the problem was just people being bad at the game i think it wouldnt be such a big cryout, why this isnt happening by those who cant shoot/kill(arent good) at APEX?Because they can aim properly they dont have a problem with the aiming system, they understand how it works its just that they missed those shots and they died knowing its their mistake, but Infinites aiming problem aint that.
The epilogue - two words about me as an fps player.
This is here for those “git gud or quit” commenters.As a player i have been playing Halo(and most of the AAA fps games) for more than 15 years not that this adds any evaluation to what i write/say, but any game i have touched i have never had the feeling that i cant aim properly as i and many others have right now with Infinite.Second of,i think i am a great player at Halo Reach which is my most played fps game of all time, great player at APEX (on PS4 account,Romanaras), very good at warzone(cod) and i never had an issue on those with aiming or feeling that the PC players have an easier time aiming etc.
That’s most of the thoughts i could gather right now.I hope in a solution that pleases everyone and makes the game playable as soon as possible because casuals(and harcore,but casies wont wait much) will keep leaving if they cant play properly.
