M9 Wierd Aiming

7 replies 551 views Edited Oct 17, 2013

I've seen people zooming in and out while shooting me with an M9 (Only tryhards/alt accounts are doing this).  What does this do?  Increase the aim assist a bit?

It lets you see farther. It's easy to mispress.

Besides, I used to do that a lot. It's better than not **bleep** aiming the thing. That's way past borderline retarded.

You can see DeFy_Kim doing that with his M9 in the FN matches they post on youtube

To add, I don't think it helps with aim assist. There could be many reasons. I like zooming in with the M9 because it's a force of habit to zoom in on it. I got the habit because it's easier to target farther enemies and target a specific limb like the head.

I don't use it because I don'tt like to press my R3 down so much, and the help it gives isn't very great at all (I would do it if I did "srs cstms", but I don't), but anyway, it does seem to "reduce" recoil in a slight way. It doesn't really, but it does...


(I'm making no sense, deal with it).

Do you feel me?

It makes recoil seem manageable to an extent since the recoil bounce is larger when zoomed in. Since it's larger, peeps can estimate better how much pullback they need.

If people do it a lot in mid-to-short range, they're just tense. Default controls are R3 zoom and L3 sprint. People tend to press down on the right stick in direct gunfights because your thumb isn't relaxed from all the "**bleep** **bleep** NOOOO" thoughts.

Don't make this the new Wack N' Roll or whatever is called. It can be useful sometimes but i don't want to see people spamming it...

Spamming the zoom button? You're kidding. You can't "spam" it and call it advantageous. It's really only helpful in long range and CoD-ish in any other range.


You know, like how everyone has to aim down the sight in CoD.
