Yeah, it's so annoying.
Also another thing... is someone comes up alongside of you, you can't auto-aim on them even if they are shooting at you.
Then free aim them first before they do it to you, or go behind cover.
Most of the times they will be in a similar situation, aiming at cops or random NPCs so free-aiming them will get you the kill rather than getting back in cover and waiting for civilians to leave.
Often you can still get shot behind cover and you can't always shoot them first.
They aren't in a similar situation if they lock onto you right away and you can't lock onto them, which is how you die.
Yeah I agree, but it happens very rarely still so I just let it slide and try to free aim them through the mess. Generally the MG does the job, but sometimes you lose either way.
Auto aim is a bit buggy here and there, with corners, etc But it happens maybe once every 50 deaths so it's not a big deal for me. I know what happened and chances are the other guy does too. It happens both ways. Sometimes, things just don't work right.
