I dont know exactly what or how you guys did it, but Widowmaker feels much more natural and fluid. I read the sticky posted by Mr. Powers in the general forum and found about these console changes.
Anytime a new shooter title comes out, the first thing I do is find the sniper class and see what it’s like, and Widowmaker has always been different from other console shooters. The crosshair never went exactly where I wanted it to go, to where I’ve been accustomed to having it go in every other triple A shooter title. I’ve spent I don’t know how many hours in the controller options menu and in the training range trying to correct the strange aiming, and never could before today. After reading the post from Mr. Powers, the first thing I did was join a Petra free for all and set the new aim assist ease in to 100 with the new aim assist setup that came in during today’s update. Every shot went exactly where I wanted it to go, the only times I missed were where I just plain old missed. I played several free for all games and either won or came within 1 or 2 from winning. This is a significant improvement over the previous system. All I did was set the aim assist ease in slider to 100 and the difference was everything. I have to congratulate you guys at Blizzard for taking the time out to do this.
It had often rubbed me the wrong way, seeing other players getting multi kill headshots as Widowmaker and knowing I could never do that in Overwatch but I could in any other console shooter - I’m used to being the one players will send private messages to, complaining about me ruining the game for them because I could snipe. Widowmaker was always a hero i couldn’t play, so I’d finally resigned myself to avoiding Widowmaker’s line of sight or jumping on them with D.Va and Winston.
There aren’t any jerky or unintended reticule movements so far. I still haven’t yet tested the aim assist pulling the reticule in an unintended direction when in close quarters, I’ve been having too much fun playing Widowmaker with my Kerrigan and Noire skins. The game has a different meaning for me now, the sniper rifle has always been my reliable go-to weapon in any game except Overwatch, until now.
I use Legacy Sticks, and there are still issues with 2 of the 3 aim techniques, exponential ramp is still the only aim technique I can use with Legacy Sticks that feels natural. There is no unstable wobbling of the crosshair if I try to move, but the wobbling happens with 0 aim ease in and dual zone or linear ramp but not expo ramp. And there’s still people using a mouse and keyboard on console.
