Known for his candid and outspoken commentary, xQc delved into the clip, expressing sharp criticism for the aim assist mechanics in The Finals. He pointed out what he perceived as reduced recoil in the clip and labeled the feature as “broken,” stating, “That is so broken. It’s just really bouncy and weird, I don’t know.”
A clip featuring AimbotCalvin reacting to a video showcasing the aim assist gained traction on Reddit, with Calvin expressing disbelief at the perceived lack of fairness. xQc, encountering the clip during his recent stream, echoed AimbotCalvin’s concerns, emphasizing his dissatisfaction with how recoil works on PC.
“The bigger problem I have with this is not even the fact that the aim is doing good. It’s the fact that the recoil is normally so annoying in this game. The fact that the controller counteracts the recoil is crazy!” xQc remarked.
The ongoing debate surrounding controllers versus mouse-and-keyboard in FPS games, coupled with the contentious issue of aim assist, has sparked discussions within the gaming community. As the controversy unfolds, gamers await potential responses from the developers regarding the balance of aim-assist mechanics in The Finals.
