With about 350,000 kills in BFH on XBOX One, I have never had aim assist function to my benefit. When I have picked up weapons from others, I have had a few instances when aim was pulled to alternate target running past. I also cannot open other player info while in game, use spectator mode or see who is any given game from Server Info. Evidently, we do get different experiences from settings and/or connections.
A functional aim assist could be a huge difference or no difference, but every player should have the same access and choice to use it or not. Would be useful for all players to understand the mechanics of how to get the intended results. I've played with great players, regularly breaking 100 kills in TDM, sprinting around the map, shooting on the run, with their head on swivel because of effective use of mini-map, skill AND aim-assist.
Please dont respond with an ignorant comment about how great players dont need "aim assist" with "auto rotation" unless you will be so kind to explain what auto rotation is and how it relates because you clearly know and have used it. Im clear that I havent used it all, but it is about time I know what it is and how it works after 4000 hours played.
