I posted up asking a question about BFV and BO4 in a gaming reddit page and mentioned that I use a XIM Apex on my PS4...holy cow. Downvoted and just hated. I explained, not that I needed to, that I use Xim because I stink at using a controller and makes the game more frustrating to play. XIM allows me to play with what I'm more comfortable with and enjoy the game that much more. They weren't having any of that. Just ridiculing me...it was quite humorous.

Controller users think that we just use XIM to try and stomp on them when in reality most of us arenít even that good and just prefer to use mouse and keyboard for FPS but donít play on PC, so XIM allows us to use our preferred input method. Also they act like XIM is something only special people have access to, if they really think it turns you into god they should try it out themselves. Then they can see that it does not turn you into god

Exactly, the dumbest thing I hear anti-Xim kids say is ď You spent £100 / $100 to use mouse and keyboard ď

A Xim + a Keyboard and a good mouse costs less than a scuff or one of those modded controllers, like......

The upvoting of anti-XIM comments on Reddit turns into a big circle jerk quickly, just don't even mention it because they are ignorant. I fall into the category of an average FPS player myself on controller or XIM for that matter. I only wish XIM did make me Godlike like those Reddit @#$% think it does! In my case, playing on XIM relieved severe right thumb tendinitis caused by the controller, which was the main reason why I got it.

Yeah you do have to be pretty skilled at FPS to take full advantage of XIM. If youíre average on a controller youíll most likely be average on XIM (there are probably a few exceptions to that rule but it applies to most ppl I would assume)

I agree, I've had the xim for more than a month now and it's good, I actually can aim better, but I'm definitely not much better than using controller only.

haters ganna hater..... most controller users also abuse there settings as well, on top of the fact they use aftermarket controllers..

isnt gaming ment to be fun ? i dont find a FPS on controller fun at all. as ive said many a time untill i got my apex i hardly gamed because like you OP, i find it frustrating missing and being unable to hit stuff i know that i should be hitting and i dont wanna play with a stupid thumb stick, take it back to the time when we learnt on consoles(older gamers) .....
we didnt even have 1 thumb stick let alone 2... maybe you cant teach an old dog new tricks hahaha.

Link to the thread? I just love reading the opinions of pitchfork-wielding, luddite, XIMophobes. ;)

I'm equally average on PS4 with the XIM as I am on PC. But I'm atrocious on either with a controller! :)

I once made a Reddit thread saying the only way to reduce XIM users would be to offer really good native M&KB support, split match making, with M&KB exclusive features (eg hip learning for Siege). I got trashed to hell.

So even when you offer constructive advice you get torn up. They have no freaking idea what they want.

They seem to think all a person has to do is plug in a XIM and they turn into flawless headshot machines, with no human error. It's as if every XIM comes pre-loaded with an aimbot.

They don't understand that the XIM isn't any different than any other peripheral, you have to put in work if you want to be good and make the most of it.

I think they use the XIM as a scapegoat for their lack of skill with a pad. You see it on PC all the time, ""I didn't lose that gunfight because of my poor aim,the other player is using an aimbot!"

In this case, replace 'aimbot' with XIM.

Perhaps they should complain less and practice more with their preferred peripheral.

I totally agree with you on this one. some dude last night was complaining that I was modding. First message I got about it. I don't modd. Just got a xim. But i didn't tell him that, I'd have gotten trashed.
