It's driving me crazy. Some days they feel great and then others they feel floaty as hell. I've tried a few different mice and even changed out my mouse pad, the problem still persists (intermittently). Has anyone else had this?

Which game are you playing, is it single player? Many of the games as a service games these days can feel different based on network conditions and small updates during the day.

Network connections is the most likely explanation. It's not only your connection to the server that matters, but the connection of every peer you engage with on the server.

If they have fast connections, you'll find aim and movement to be responsive. If they have a high ping, you may experience input delay and aim assist can create a rubber-band effect.

Every other factor (your gear, XIM settings, framerate etc) is a constant and won't cause variance.

Yeah good shout on the connection I think guys. Obviously due to what's going on atm everyone is at home using their internet and my ping hasn't been great. Been keeping an eye on things. When I'm getting that floaty feeling I'm on 50-70 ping. When I'm on 30 it feels great. Also it never feels floaty when I'm in bot practice in customs (I play BO4 mostly).
