Why am I stuck in free aim?

Question

SweetApples

Okay I haven't played this game in a while. I come back on and whenever I aim, it's on free aim. I went to single player and change the settings and everything but I am still on it. I see other players shoot and they are on assisted aim. Why am I stuck in free aim. I know people are going to say it's better, but it's not fair that other people get assisted when I'm stuck in free aim. How do I fix this? Someone plz help. Thanks.

I don't know if it will help, but try immediately saving the game after you change you're aim settings back.

Im on ps4. And should I save the game? Or Uninstaller and then reinstall? Does that mess up anything?

I'm super confused. Go to GTA V, change aiming mode to Assisted Aim or Free-Aim, whichever you want. Then exit out of options, and join GTA Online. It WILL put you in the correct lobby. If it doesn't, you are the first person to have this issue in the history of the game.

This is literally what I did. I went into single player, changed it to assisted aim and went into online and I am the only one who is shooting is free aim and everyone else is assisted aim. I honestly don't understand and its f*cking annoying. I've tried everything.

And when you go to the settings in GTAO it says what as your aiming type? I always have to switch backandforth due to certain friends who refuse to see the light (free-aim) and I've yet to have an issue.

 

Make sure it says Assisted Aim Full,not Assisted Aim Partial

It says that it's assisted aim, but it's not highlighted, it's like dull and grey and everything else is in white. Is that the issue?

So, basically your aim lock is not working ?!? Because if your settings show assisted aim you should definitely be able to lock on targets. The fact that it's greyed out is simply because you can't change it from the Online section of the game. Like CrissRiot I have never heard of such an issue. Maybe your triggers are faulty, some PS4 controllers tend to have problems after prolonged use.

Nope that's ok,thats what it should be. If it's saying that it means you are in an Assisted Aim lobby, and thus you should be AA-capable. Does AA work in GTA V?

My controller works fine though. I can do burnouts and stuff. But, I cannot do aim assist in single or multiplayer even though the option to have it there is there.

 

How do i save my game? Is that what I should do after? Sorry I took a long break from this game and now everything is different and weird.

do one of your friends prefer free aim ? if so every time you join their session and it says something about a different shooting mode and you join it, then that is probably why

Because free aim is what you should be using, we don't need no stinking aim assist!

I'll try to save the game later when I get on. I think maybe the controller is broken cuz i went on youtube and another girl was having the same problem and she said she switched controllers and it worked again. I still don't get out the controller being "Broken" will only mess up aim assist and NOTHING else...

May be the spring on the LT. Some have had issues with the springs in their controllers not working fully. But what you're saying is, even though you're in a AA lobby, afayk, you're on freeaim and your settings say freeaim as well. Sounds like an issue with the game itself on the machine. Do you shut everything off as you should? Might be corrupted data or something.

 

Lots of possibilities, first time I've heard of this.
