Fortnite and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, particularly Warzone, are being invaded by severe aim assist issues, which give controller-equipped players on PC an unfair advantage over the mouse and keyboard users. The situation is worsening despite the fact that Epic Games has already taken measures to make the aim assist system less overpowered in Fortnite.
The first changes to aim assist rolled out in Fortnite a month ago, which was a necessary step considering the players’ growing displeasure with how it worked. Basically, the system allowed gamers with controllers to mow their opponents down thanks to aim assist, which acted almost like an aimbot. Epic Games acknowledged the issue and introduced the first changes to it stating that the system would function as a 60hz one instead of 240hz, which implied that aim assist wouldn’t be so effective at precise aiming and capturing targets. It turns out that the exploit hasn’t been fixed properly as players in Fortnite – and now Modern Warfare as well – are experiencing issues with controller-equipped gamers.
Fortnite fans have been especially vocal on Twitter, which led to Ninja – the game’s most popular streamer – expressing his own thoughts on the matter in a short video. Apparently, the top 10 to 15 players in North American region are all controller users on PC relying on the aim assist system. What makes it even worse is that the system works differently on consoles and doesn’t have that much of an impact on the gameplay flow. On PC, however, it is overpowered and broken. Ninja suggests that the community should be talking about the issue more and reaching out to developers so that the situation would be finally resolved. Moreover, Ninja stresses out that popular influencers and competitive players should be at the forefront of providing feedback and expressing their concerns over the aim assist issue. It’s not just about the community being vocal, however, as demonstrated by Ryan Wyatt – the head of YouTube’s gaming division. He has taken the side of the mouse and keyboard players mocking “controller Kings” on Twitter.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has been hit with a similar wave of aim assist issues, although the system acts a little bit differently. According to Dr DisRespect, it not only works on fortnite v bucks generator like a magnet of sorts capturing the target in Call of Duty: Warzone but also reduces the amount of shake and flinch when a player with aim assist enabled is being shot at. It probably requires more comprehensive research, but Dr DisRespect is quite reliable on that matter since he’s an experienced and seasoned player. He’s clearly shown how broken aim assist is on PC by mowing down his enemies one after another using a controller.
