Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Aim Assist Settings Explained by Infinity Ward

Share this:

If you’ve dipped your feet in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare alpha that just concluded yesterday, there’s a chance you checked the options to see that the game features different aim assist settings. If you’re wondering how the Modern Warfare aim assist settings work, allow Infinity Ward to explain it a bit better.

Answering fan questions on Reddit, Infinity Ward Co-Design Director of Multiplayer Joe Cecot explained the differences between the enhanced, and experimental Modern Warfare aim assist settings.

Specifically each is different. For instance, one doesn’t slow down your aim when pointing close to a target as much as the traditional aim assist does. I personally don’t like this, but higher skilled players who have better stick control do like it. They feel they can get on target faster with less help from the system. Hope that example helps.

That seems to be a logical explanation, right?
