Aim assist. It’s a necessary evil for controllers.
It’s got two components in BF1. The snapping part, which drags your weapon towards the nearest enemy, called auto rotation. And a slowdown part which occurs when ADSing and passing over an enemy target, which IMO is enough assistance for a controller.
The snapping part, auto rotation is cut from BFV, this was stated before, but was again confirmed in the latest dev talk. This means a lot more for console players than PC players.
What it means is console players will actually have to get better at aiming. The game will not be aiming for you by snapping to targets anymore.
Since BF is an FPS game aim is a core skill. Now I’ll know if I get beaten in a difficult 1vs1, it was because my opponent was more skilled than me.
Goodbye aim assist you won’t be missed.
