Updated aim assist to improve precision when tracking targets
An option to revert to the previous aim assist settings can now be found under Options > Aim Assist Legacy Mode
An option to smooth out the strength of aim assist when closing in on a target can now be found under Advanced Options > Aim Assist Ease
Developer Comments: We’ve reworked how our aim assist algorithm works on console to make the controls more intuitive and to improve gameplay. Previously, aim assist worked in two ways. First, we slowed down your aim to allow more precision when tracking a target. Second, we automatically adjusted your crosshairs in the direction the target is moving around you, to make up for the lower sensitivity. Now, we incorporate how you are currently turning with the aim stick when determining how the enemy is moving relative to yourself. In practice, this means if you are perfectly tracking a target aim assist will not activate.

We’ve also improved aim assist's target selection to reduce instances where your aim could be pulled away from your focused target if another enemy crossed your path. The new Aim Assist Ease In setting allows the aim assist system to ramp up its strength as you get closer to your target, producing less jarring sensitivity changes.

I have to say I did notice last night my aim wasn't being tugged or repelled around (like magnets at opposite ends of each other) after the update last night..... sniping felt nicer..

I'm just wondering what the sweetspot for aim assist ease in is now, not sure if 0 means stronger aim assist or less.

My aim has got ridiculously better, but I am using the XIM4 not the APEX.

I am missing hardly any shots with widow now and my tracer is so much better.

I'm literally getting between 70-85% scoped accuracy with widow most games, I'm not even exaggerating xD
