Respawn accidentally kicked off Apex Legends Season 11: Retreat with aim assist on console readied to computer values. The issue has because been solved, but folks on console were playing with PC levels of aim assist for a little over a day. For context: Aim assist is a great deal more prominent for Apex Legends on console than computer, meaning many console players were missing out on shots at the beginning of Period 11 that they were accurately hitting during Period 10.
Escape began on November 2 at 10 AM PT. Respawn tweeted that it had goofed but that things were back to regular now at 3 PM PT the next day, implying console players were playing with PC aim assist for about 29 hrs.
On one hand, this all makes good sense– it s no marvel I was repetitively choking with the Wingman and 30-30 Repeater in Legends s Apex Legends Season 11 launch livestream (embedded above). I was unknowingly functioning with a lower level of aim assist than I m utilized to while using Xbox.
Yet on the other hand, I wasn t missing all that numerous shots. I had the ability to adapt relatively conveniently after a couple of games as well as by that night, I was able to land hits constantly. As an (admittedly, unexpected) examination, the beginning of Period 11 is an excellent situation for gamers who suggest that console users do not require such an enhanced degree of aim assist to compete with PC players.
If Twitter is any kind of sign, the replies below Respawn s tweet about its goof appear to agree with that sentiment. There are a great deal of individuals that want Respawn to revert the modification on gaming consoles and also go back to computer levels of aim assist. Admittedly, the majority of them appear to be PC gamers who are appreciating that console gamers briefly had worse aim. However perhaps Respawn will consider the data from this unplanned examination and also make adjustments to gaming console aim assist in the future.
Getaway is a huge season for Apex Legends. The Apex Legends Season 11 patch notes detail a long list of stabilizing adjustments, including some much-needed love for Wattson. The brand-new season included the Storm Point fight royale map, the C.A.R. submachine weapon, and also playable personality Ash. Ash has some solid offensive capacities — her utmost capability, Stage Breach, has great harmony with Revenant s Death Symbol, making both simulacrum into a solid power couple.
