this was meant for 17 i was trying to spell ROBOT 100 times


iron sights
tracking up to 100m 10/10  8)
tracking from 100-150m starts to stutter 8/10  :o
tracking at 200m plus can be done but slowly and often ridicule is all over the place  :-\

i am using
xbox one x
65" 4k tv
xim apex is plugged in to a 3 m usb3 extension (so i can see it when i'm playing and sometimes plug it in to a third party device)
Chroma Gaming Keypad - Razer tartarus V2
Logitech Proteus Spectrum G502 Mouse
fiber connection 900mb down 500mb up

i play alot 24/7

I didn't experience any notable drift and therefore do not understand the bad feedback comment that someone made.I almost didn't download this patch because of that comment and I'm glad I did test this myself overall 8/10 only because I live for those 200m iron sight kill shots.

most importantly I did not use aim assist in this test, aim assist is prominent in fortnite it does change a near miss into a kill shot and snap to target with a ADS click aka quickscope

Ok, thanks. Please keep trying it out and let me know how it goes. I'm hoping it feels better than 1016 too.

Because feedback shows that it needs to control better. That's what these builds are focused on.

If you want a stronger aim assist you can always lower your DPI I知 at 4k

I have 2 apex's and so far 13 has felt the best but I have not yet tested this one.  I also am testing it on games other than fortnite.  Ill give this one a go now and give my 2 cents of it vs 13.
