Since the release of the multiplayer first-person shooter The Finals, aim assist on gamepads has received a lot of criticism. Players have complained that the crosshair literally sticks to opponents, giving a big advantage to those playing with controllers. The developers listened to the feedback and released a patch that fixes this.
The following changes have been made to the Aim Assist system:
- The maximum camera rotation speed for Zoom Snapping is now limited, preventing unintentional rapid 90-degree rotations.
- Camera magnetism reduced from 50% to 35%, making the player’s aim less tenacious and reducing controller accuracy.
- Zoom response time reduced from 0.3 s to 0.25 s.
- Zoom Snapping no longer works for the SR-84 Sniper Rifle, Revolver, LH1, and all Shotguns.
- Aim assist no longer affects invisible players.
- Players using keymappers on PC no longer have aim assist working.
* Zoom Snapping is a system that allows the player to automatically target an enemy when they come into view.
The developers also announced that a major update will be released next week, which will fix the security system and introduce new interesting content.
