Makes it easier to see spread and whether or not you will hit a target, actual crosshair instead of stupid little dot that doesn't show spread, similar to GTA:IV reticule

I find the dot is virtually impossibru to see on a lot of backgrounds, like the sky. Much prefer the complex one.

They should add black outline to the white dot, anything white with black outline could be seen behind any background [No pun intended]

I agree. So how do you change it from dot to crosshairs?! Don't leave me guessing...

settings then game settings I think (it's been a long time since I changed it but I think it's at the bottom)

You can see the complex reticule on ANY background as far as I can tell and it's superior as it shows spread

I only use complex but I haven't played in a while, can you see it when you're aiming at the sky? Say you play in FA lobby and someone is on a higher roof

yes you should, if you can't see it against a blue/black sky then up your contrast/colour saturation or up/down your brightness

I don't care much for the complex reticule. I prefer the little white dot. It's become a trademark of Rockstar's titles in the last 4 years, in my opinion.

 

Also if you're too f*cking lazy to look through all the options when you first play the game to see what is available to change, then you deserve to be stuck with a reticule you hate.

The dot (simple) is better for landing headshots more accurately in free aim.

I agree the white dot is harder to see, So i started off using the Complex sight, because the cross-hairs were easier for me to see, but it seemed that the bigger cross-hairs made it harder for me to get head shots, so i went back to simple, and after tweaking my TVs contract a little, i like simple sights better

How do you mean more responsive , do you lock on faster ? Does it become more accurate ?, and can it improve the range you can lock on to people , ,all it says is adjust sensitivity , fanx

well some people don't know about the option so I made a PSA

They mean that aiming itself is faster when you sweep so it's more responsive and better suits those who like faster aiming

I was using this since the beginning, (free aim) I actually found myself doing better with it off. Probably just me though.
