Honestly it’s not even about the skill gap debate, it absolutely needs to be toned down because it’s actually detrimental. Makes any sweeping motion janky af, especially in CQC and even worse with a zoomed Longshot where it’s a struggle to keep up with a moving target, even with 25+ sens.
Having a toggle is okay but it’s basically sweeping the problem under a rug.
Core Gears 4 aim assist did everything much better while being barely noticeable (for me at least), bringing it back would be the best.
You know what the perfect solution to this “aim assist” problem you guys are whining about is? Use a mouse. Gears 5 on console supports them now. It’ll make the game a lot better and more fun. Trust me. I’ll never use a controller again for shooting games.
Also, controller usage is almost impossible without at least a hint of aim assist. You just can’t track targets with any degree of precision with a thumbstick. If TC completely removes it, the game would be nigh unplayable. Don’t be naive.
No. We shouldn’t have to use a mouse and that is not a solution. Everyone has a personal preference for playing games and those preferences should be respected by the game developers.
I would hope the majority of people using controllers already knows there is always a degree of aim-assist in their games. But in Gears 5 this new aim-assist is far too much e.g using a Longshot literally snaps onto their head making it ridiculously easy. On the other hand it can also be detrimental, as you find yourself overcompensating shots a lot of the time.
All we’re asking for is returning it to Gears 4’s aim-assist where no one had any issues. This new recoil system is not a good enough reason to increase the aim-assist. TC needs to stop babying players, anyone that plays the game long enough or even has experience with other shooters will have no issues adjusting to it.
Remember pavilion? That map was pretty cool. Very open but there was still walls to cover on and not all were waist high lol. Flanking on that map was key, but you were dead if you were caught out in the open part.
@the-coalition as we can see has a pattern with making things strong. The auto assist and just like as mentioned a million times lag compensation. Basically TC wants everyone to be happy which is not the real world, but the players that have the skill pay for it. If TC were baseball coaches and you were in the MLB and you could not hit the pitching they would set the ball on a TEE so everyone could get a hit.
