Overwatch 2 aim assist setting could be messing with PC players

OW2 player AmonBull came across a setting within Controller settings that they believe is “bleeding” over into mouse and keyboard settings.

They said, “Controller settings are bleeding over into PC mouse input.” Amon then offered a solution by going into the Controls options, then Controller settings, then within Advanced to reduce the Aim Smoothing.

Amon claimed that doing this reduced the “floaty” feeling that they believed Overwatch 2 had.

One Overwatch fan who was questioning if this setting was indeed a real bug was convinced it’s real.

“I was super skeptical of people like Kephrii complaining about it but after testing this myself I’m almost 99% convinced this must be the bug. I think the controller aim smoothing adds a bunch of input lag on PC and setting to 0 disables it,” they said.

It seems like reducing the Aim Smoothing setting reduces the input lag and helps make aiming more similar to how Overwatch 1 felt.
