Destiny 2 PC Aim Assist Controversy

Game News: Destiny 2 PC Aim Assist Controversy

Destiny 2's PC beta is being celebrated as a port done right... well, except for one problem. Apparently, Destiny 2 is incredibly generous with aim assist for controllers, and even allows players to spoof that aim assist for their mouse and keyboard setup as well. Now we've got an argument on our hands about keyboard versus controllers all over again.

    "We've still got another debate about controller vs keyboard and mouse"

    Umm... what? That has literally nothing to do with this.

    Jesus I haven't seen The Know being this salty over people complaining about legit things.  And you call them the "gwumpy guardians".  Get a life and learn to respect your audience.

    I was having a bunch of problems with kb/m (cause I don't play PC for the most part) so I plugged in my controller. The aim assist is pretty heavy and I was at the top of the leaderboard (not quite surprising, but still unexpected) so I'd say that it could be nerfed a lot. I don't mind playing with less aim assist on controller cause my play style doesn't rely so much on aiming long distances as much as constant movement. However, I would like some since it's harder to hit those shots at long range when I'm always strafing or jumping (yes, I do Halo-Hop). But the reason I use controller is because it's harder to use my left hand for everything since I've been splitting the workload between both hands on a controller. I have a gaming mouse tho so I'm trying to learn. It's just awkward to use my fingers instead of my thumb for movement so that's my biggest adjustment right now.


    PS I believe the device is Cross Input Mapper (XIM) so ex-eye-em wouldn't be wrong. However, it's the gif/jif argument.

    Easy fix. Get rid of aim-assist. I play TF2 on a PC using an XB controller all the time and do just fine. Most people would call it a disadvantage, but I like it and have learned to work well with it even in a PC evironment. People who like controlers either need to switch or just git gud.

      I think they just got some new interns. There have been a lot of little mistakes lately, like typos in captions and weird highlighting in quotes- the kinds of things the more experienced team members wouldn't mess up. It would also explain why the pacing on cuts feels different.

    Interesting. I just started using a mouse and keyboard and my aim was great! I haven't messed with the settings too much so hopefully I'm not accidentally using aim assist.
