I just noticed my auto aim wasn't working yesterday and now I'm stuck with this free aim crap that makes it impossible to use weapons, anyone know how to fix this? ( I've been told it has to do with the lobby you're in but every lobby I'm in is free aim now)

 

 

title edited for clarity to learn more please see. Thanks! GuardianBelle

might be the lobby, never her of that before though. if it is you might be joining one someone made for a friend just a few hours later after they left. that might explain it. still check your settings again it might of been switch off by mistake.

There is no settings for aim preference. All the lobbies now must been custom made :catmad:

Go back to the Single Player & set your aiming settings to Auto-Lock & you will be placed in Online Lobbies with the same settings :smileyhappy:.

Hahahahahahahahah impossible to use weapons because of free aim? WHAT A SCRUB! There should ONLY be free aim! Your kind is also the reason why the driving is trash. in GTA IV: "WAH these cars feel heavy!! I want these cars to handle much easier in GTA V!!!":smileysad: I am so very sorry if this hurt your unskilled feelings

Well someone takes games a bit too serious. GTA isn't a competitve game & not everyone can aim without aim assist on consoles hence most online shooters in general have some sort of aim assist on consoles because of the analog limitations.

Also driving in GTA 4 was too floaty.

Anyways there's no need to insult anyone especially about 'Skill' in a GTA game LOL.

I figured it out. Once you go to a lobby with free aim, you have to get back into one before aim assist lobbies become default for you again.

you can only change the aim mode in offline if you accidentaly set to free aim before going online or if you join a free aim game that you were invited to the only way to fix it is go offline and switch back to auto aim.
