Sometimes Can't Auto-Aim

Recommended Posts

vahnx

There's a very low chance but sometimes it doesn't auto-aim on certain players. Even if there's no cops around. I can be pretty close to them too. Does anyone know why this happens?

The game wants you to use FREE AIM.

 

That or, the aiming is messed up on Assisted Aim.

can be that your weapon doesn't have the range, your not centered on them, or the cover you are behind...

It's just a bit buggy. I get killed because of this quite regularly. I find it happens most when you're taking cover and not as close to the corner/edge as possible.

Wouldn't it be the opposite? They would always have that problem, lol.

This does happen but I have excellent free aim skills so I usually get the kill anyway.

If a character is using free aim, the people who try to shoot them get free aim also.

 

You just ran into someone using free aim.

I thought free aimers weren't playing in the same world as auto aimers.

True, it didn't work for me sometimes when i wanted to kill a player. At the end he killed me, it doesn't matter. It's rarely happening to me.

You can just hold down the trigger halfway and have free aim - you're never forced to auto aim.

 

If you want to join the lobbies/deathmatches etc with forced free aim - then go back to single player, go to your controller options, and set it to "Free Aim". When you rejoin GTAO it'll put (and keep you) in free aim servers.

 

Downside is if you let the game switch it later, so you can join some friends in another lobby type, it'll put it back and you have to repeat the process afterwards (or join a friend in a free aim game to get the game to switch it back for you).

It's too hard on PS3 to freeaim then because the triggers suck, it's either fully held down or not.

True, it's a bit more fiddly. This is often why I play games on the X360 instead of our PS3 - as stupid as it sounds - I like my triggers!

New PS4 controllers are much better.

How do you turn on free aim?

 

leave online, enter single player, load single player game, go to options, turn on free aim, return to multiplayer, get stuck in cloud bug, get booted back to single player, load multiplayer, realize it didn't save, go back to single player, go to options, turn on free aim, return to multiplayer, get placed in empty server.

It's not that, it's the fact it goes from auto-aim to manual so there's no time to react to the change.

No ya f*cking goon, its just that its unexpected and meanwhile the other player has locked on successfully and has killed you before you even have time to think - oh sh*t, its not locking, better start combat rolling and get ready to free aim this fu....ah sh*t, he got me.
