Ever had those moments where some random guy tries to kill you, and you shoot him, get the cops on you, then you try to shoot him again, but then you auto aim on cops and the guy ends up killing you?

 

Rockstar needs to add an option to remove auto aim like they had an option to remove auto aim on your friends. I swear man, I cant take it when I'm trying to kill other players and it auto aims on cops.

 

What are your thoughts?

The low priority setting should, imho, work like:

Players>cops>crew/friend

Why it's not? Cash cards I guess.

IMHO, Auto-Aim should only engage NPC's/cop's and not player's. PvP should alway's be free-aim.

Agree 100% i made a thread about this a few weeks back and it's not just Cops it the NPC too.

 

There were like 5 of us in the middle of LS having a shoot out with each other and of course the cops came and screwed everything up i would go to aim at the guy across the street but instead of aiming at him i would whip around and aim at the cop, Leaving me wide open for the other player to kill me which he did.

 

R* needs to fix this like they did with the friend priory they should allow us to choose what type of priory we want when it comes to aiming at the cops and NPC

You pro free-aimers are such homo's. If people want to play auto aim then they should be able to do so and not be answerable to you jackasses. It speaks volumes that the vast majority of players choose this option.

 

As such of course there should be an option where players are a priority over the police. I'm sure most of us have been screwed over by this before, a player standing right in front you of, you go to aim and you spin around and shoot a cop directly behind you. This is even more annoying when the police aren't even after you, they are after the guy you're shooting at!!

 

I'm sure its an issue that can be easily resolved by Rockstar.

It's straight up f*cktarded, even when the cross hair is right next to the player it jumps all the way to the edge of the screen to lock a cop.

The worst case of auto-aiming on the cops is when you're in a Buzzard, stupid rockets keep targetting the police when you're trying to get that bounty :(

I jut gave him a suggestion. If he doesn't want the game to aim for then he should do it himself.
I've played auto-aim a few times and I have never had this problem.

Freeaim players on this forum give us a bad image. :/

Here's some useful tips that I would use for when I played in Traditional GTA (works in Assisted Aiming too, same thing really). Holding down the left trigger half-way will let you aim on your own (freeaim). So once you got that little trick down, whenever you're in a shootout with a player and cops show up, try to hide behind a car or wall a bit away from them. While autoaim can lock-on to enemies far away, it really depends on the weapon. Your best bet is the sniper rifle as you're a safe distance from the enemy and they can't lock on. But if you're close to them and the cops are coming quick, freeaiming the AP Pistol or that automatic shotgun is your best bet. Then again, if you can lock-on to them and not cops that's a bit better but practicing this trick will help you tons, especially if you decide to stand next to cops so he locks on to them. You fire at him, killing him and then quickly run away/kill the cop next to you (adding a bit of protection between you and the cop is better).

Grenades are cheap and effective. If he's hiding somewhere, throw a grenade next to a corner of the wall he's behind or behind him. Or lay down some C4 if you're a bit rich. Teargas works too but he'll just run to another cover, unless you can hit him quick enough and not lock-on to the cops. I also found that if you aim more towards their side instead of on them, the lock-on focuses on them. Example:

Enemy behind a wall, on the left side of your screen.
Crazy cop on the right side of your screen.
Your white dot should be towards the left of him, only if he can poke his head out. If he doesn't, the only lock-on person on screen will be the cop (if he's standing still while shooting which they always do because they don't give a f*ck).

Hope these help. :)
I understand the rage and hopefully this new Lester ability for no cops will make freeroam adventures more fun and player challenging instead of cops showing up and busting the party.

To go along with LiveJoker's post:

Holding the Right Trigger half way also let's you ADS without having to use Left Trigger at all.

Dude, the NPC's retain their accuracy regardless of aim preference. Lol, the enemies in missions are far worse though... especially the ones that kill you when shooting from cover and out of vehicles!

Forgot about holding right trigger halfway. No idea what ADS (Aiming Denying Shot? :p) stands for but it basically lets you aim, press a bit more and you fire. That way, you can fire really quickly and precisely. It also lets you run while shooting compared to left trigger aiming which zooms in but slows you way down. Right trigger has no zoom but you go much faster, thus a harder target.

I dont know why they messed with this the targeting,in gta iv it never had this problem,it should always be player over npc period.also the target swing is very stiff compared to the smoothness of gta iv they should immediately go back to this

Or you could just, ya know, learn to aim?

 

Aimbot is a disgrace (esp in pvp) aimed towards giving players instant gratification instead of having to actually work towards sharpening up your own skills. It's because people like you we have auto-correcting steering and ridiculous traction control. 

 

Suck it up and learn to shoot ya little girls.

free aim should have been default, and the majority of people would be playing free aim now, making this irrelevant. but because it wasnt, so yes, the priority of auto aim aiming needs to be fixed.

Personally I tend to dial 911 or sit at a police station with a bounty cos its hillarious the number of people that come to collect and shoot a cop. Good laughs.

Just aim manually though. If cops are screwing your lock theyre screwing with anyone near you. So aim manually. Its not difficult. You aim manually while the other guy keeps locking cops you win.

It's not really a matter of learning to aim... I think you guys have reading comprehension issues.

 

the problem is that cops are too f*cking sensitive. Just now, I was driving a car I owned. I didn't run over anyone, I didn't shoot anyone. I drove PAST a cop car. I got one star.

 

Earlier than that, I had a cop give me one star because I bashed in a car window (did not steal it, decided not to) and I was in the boonies, middle of no f*cking where and I could not find anyone else out there. Cops show up. I run, no aggression, never hit anyone or anything as I flee. Instant two stars.

 

Guy shoots me, I shoot back with a silenced handgun. Two stars. Why is it like this? It's almost impossible to actually have free roam battles with people because every f*cking thing you do shy of breathing heavily can cause the cops to swarm on you in seconds. The police should NOT be this sensitive and attacking other players should not involve the police unless they are nearby. They shouldn't just telepathically know that you and another player are fighting. The police should not interfere with PVP combat unless they witness it. Appearing out of thin air makes no sense. The cops being alerted to what you're doing even if they aren't nearby makes no sense. It makes freeroam a complete nightmare because all you end up doing is either running from the cops or getting blasted by them for the dumbest infractions. ONE star should not warrant instant shotgun blasts to the f*cking face and they shouldn't accumulate stars so easily.

 

How exactly are we expected to have engaging PVP battles when most of our combat is spent defending ourselves from cops?

In a pvp game there should not be auto-aim at all.

It sucks being sniped by an Uzi from the other side of Los Santos just because someone randomly pressed LT and shot.
