Aim Assist Is Obsolete
Sledgehammer Games has finally confirmed that a fix for aim assist for Call of Duty: Vanguard as well as Call of Duty: Warzone is ready for shipping alongside the Season 2 update.
The bug Sledgehammer is finally squashing has been reported repeatedly during the first season of Vanguard’s lifecycle to have made aim assist “intermittently deactivate” during combat.
Sledgehammer in a series of tweets goes on to explain that the bug has prevented the system from performing a “player visibility check”, this check analyzes every frame to decide whether aim assist should be activated based on whether there is an enemy in sight.
The studio also reaffirms the player base they have already tested this fix and it will be arriving today.
During Vanguard Season One, we began to monitor reports from players that Aim Assist was not always functioning properly. Today, we are optimistic we have fixed a bug that caused Aim Assist to intermittently deactivate while engaging an enemy player.
