Sa3 and boost make all the difference. People can tell me you can have the same with apex but it is definitely not the same game experience. Itís much harder to get a smooth aa management with apex on overwatch. It feels so inconsistent...

Roger that. SA and Boost are layered on top of the ST look mechanics.

My experience was similar when testing SA3 vs Apex beta FW in Black Ops 4. Apex had stronger AA, but hitbox entry was smoother on SA3.

Enlighten me on what "SA3" is so I can try it myself.

I only play Overwatch with APEX so I am not sure if this is the issue other people are experiencing in this thread. But recently I have noticed that when I try to turn left or right sometimes it doesn't seem to register or is is very slow. Almost like Mei is freezing me (if that makes sense). I am using common sync and no curve. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance ...

Sounds like youíre hitting the max turn speed cap, all console games have them and is a limitation of console M&K, you canít do anything a controller canít do.

You just have to atone your muscle memory and make slow movements when turning.

No it is because you are using an auxiliary for sniper I guess then it impact moira and mei for exemple when you right clic and it will Slow down your movement.

Use a separate config and auxiliary for widow. Then you switch config by pressing F1 or F2 when playing sniper.

Eager to see what y'all can come up with on the new firmware i've been away from Console OW for a bit, playing PC instead, but if SA/Boost can help make the apex feel more like how the 4 was with linear ramp i'd pick the game up again on console.
