Battlefield 2042 devs respond to aim assist concerns after 3.1 patch update
A Battlefield 2042 lead developer addressed aim assist concerns after players noticed the 3.1 patch update did little to help those on console.
DICE are targeting the biggest issues in BF 2042 now that players have had a chance to get a few weeks of gameplay under their belts. Among the first big adjustments came to loadouts that failed to load for players, Specialist balances, and a more consistent aim assist.
DICE Lead Game Florian ‘DRUNKKZ3’ Le Bihan admitted the changes in the 3.1 update were small and that players might not notice but more improvements are in the works.
“It has been slightly adjusted but it doesn’t really make aim assist work well so it might not really look like it ‘got better’ with this update,” he said. “We’re still working on that though.”
