Ok so this is my first GTA game so call me a noob if you want, but why has Rockstar opted for a tiny white circle as the aiming reticule? It is sometimes hard to see and doesn't look cool at all.

 

Oh and this is unrelated, but has anyone figured out how to use the attack helicopter effectively? For me, it is impossible to kill anything due to the aiming reticule moving all over the place.

You can configure that in the settings, it's called "complex mode" or something like that. I'm sure you'll find it if you look at the settings.

You can change the reticule in the options menu.

Switch to advanced targeting.

Given the choice of some obnoxiously large crosshair or tiny white dot, I think many gamers will lean towards tiny white dot. It seems difficult for developers to find some middle ground. The complex aiming options help, although I don't understand why we need completely different ones for different weapons.

All noobs... Games usually have this magically thing in the pause menu called settings/options.

 

Start > Settings > Display > Weapon Target ----> Change to Complex.

Would love to see each/most Weapons have 5-6 different scopes to choose from, each with a different Crosshair/Reticule :)

Honestly, I really love the option of the tiny white circle. Much more accurate shooting.

Comparing shooting a real gun to shooting a gun in a third person shooter...-_-... Astounding.

Does the technology exist for hunters to view themselves from behind and above their bodies? If so they should give that sh*t to the military. That would be awesome.

Start > Settings > Advanced Aiming Reticle

 

Also, use the helicopter in 3rd-person mode, it will still lock-on to targets.

 

Also, this shouldn't be in the online section.  You would of got way more answers.

I feel for you pal. My eyesight is pretty damn good but I have to agree its very small and aiming at a light coloured space can make it very difficult to see at all. It'd be nice to have some other options for this in the display settings.
