Aim assist is a feature that sparked many debates among Destiny 2 fans. As a quick reminder, this in-game function automatically adjusts player targeting in combat.
In other words, it makes it easier for players to aim and shoot their enemies.
The number one goal of aim assist is to establish a balance between controllers, on the one hand and keyboard and mouse, on the other hand.
If you hoped that aim assist would be different in the final version of the game, then we’ve got some bad news for you.
Destiny 2 Aim Assist remains unchanged
Destiny 2’s aim assistant is similar to how it was in the beta. Developers believe that the controls available on the controller are pretty good, and many gamers seem to like them the way they are. They added that PC players should have the ability to play that way if that’s what they want.
However, not all PC players will get the controller, and many will stick to the good old keyboard and mouse. This means that some of the gamers won’t be able to aim in a precise manner and this will unbalance the game ruining its competitive integrity.
Aim assist for PVE only
Many gamers harshly criticized Bungie for taking this decision, adding that Destiny 2’s aim assist feature should be deployed for PVE only, not for PVP.
Yeah. There’s already console games that don’t use aim assist in multiplayer but do in single player, so I don’t see why they can’t do that for PC. Let people sit back and relax on the couch with a controller for PVE, and if you want to play PVP, wither switch to a mouse and keyboard or tough it out with a controller, it’s not too bad.
Judging by gamer feedback, it appears that Destiny 2 will have a short lifespan on PC.
