heavy aim assist? new since patch or just lag?

So I've been having matches now were I feel I've been destroyed by either very good player (curiously they have mediocre kdr while I was close to 2) or ppl who have been helped by the new game feature that help reaction more than accurate aiming.

So when I pay attention to how I get kill, specially when I play close quarters with an SMG or Shotgun, I get amazed of how quickly the enemies aimed, and even worst sometimes I land 1 or 2 shots on the enemy before he stills kills me with amazing accuracy.

Why I notice is, beside panic knife, which help players to stay alive even when they don't deserve so, there is also "panic aim assist", this is players, whenever someone enters their line of sight (even from sides or complicated ADS zones), would press the ADS button and immediately start shooting, even without aiming (or maybe they just need to start leaning into the enemie's direction )...which tells me how much aim assist this game has.

I was thinking that this might be some kind of lag shooting. you know, the one that makes you feel you shoot 1st but in reality it was you enemy who shot 1st and lag made you feel differently, but how do that explains the fact that I see the killcam, and actually see that my enemies immediately go to ADS and start shooting even prior to make the crosshair been near my body. It's like ppl, even kids, know that the game will help them to land their shots, cause they don't need to aim anymore, they just press ZR (DA) and shoot.

I also wonder if this is something new, or has been since launch. Cause I feel lately I'm getting killed quite often when I landed the 1st couple of shots, am I sucking too much finishing the kill?

BTW I'm a veteran of COD so I have experienced aim assisted CODs before, do you guys agree?, but 1st pay attention to the killcams when you get kill, just note how the enemy starts firing, unrealistically, just as he is going to ADS...while the fair thing to do would be, at least let the hip cross-hair be near the enemy before going to ADS, or go to ADS immediately and then move towards the body before shooting!

The patch mustve added more AA to Gamepad or DA's. It's alot stronger than before. I felt my cursor drag towards enemies more frequently than ever. I think they increased it

Your a wiimoter arent you. The ads time is quicker with the gamepad or analog controller, its just a mechanic that puts wiimote at a disadvantage, its not the games fault, its the wiimote dynamics. It always infuriates me in all cods how my ads even with quickdraw seems so slow. Same with the panic knife, its way easier to do with a diff controller than the mote, but I guess we just have to deal with it. LMGs in BO2 are the worst, people start hipfiring and then ADS whilst they are firing, and NEVER lose ain thru the entire motion. Thats pretty much impossible with wiimote as your natural hand movement takes you off target.

The other stuff you mentioned is just lag.

So you mean this problem is at the hardware (wiimote) level?...which pretty much means there' nothing we and 3arc can do about it?

Cause I think it's software, I think 3arc overcompensates DAs by giving them too quick ADS time and noticeable aim assist. Yeah I can tell DA have quicker, but also there is aim assist, cause their ADS cross-airs stay on target very smoothly throughout the kill.

Thanks for the honesty...I actually think that it is very recent, cause every day I play I may pay attention to one or two "unfair" killcams (to my opinion) and never noticed so much evident assist.

I used to think that the amount of assistance is kind of easy to change, kind of a number in front of an item option, but maybe it is more complicated than that.

I find hilarious that, after many years of COD, whenever they fix some issues, they create new ones....how does that happens?

i find it hilarious that you people dont understand da aa is the same on all consoles, not to mention there are patch notes to every update/hotfix made posted at the top of this forum.

How long have you played COD?...it is well known that almost every patch brings some unintended changes, that the developers did not address on the patch notes.

but you arent talking about unintended changes or glitches. youre talking about a da aa buff that didnt happen, and if it did it would be on all consoles and in the patch notes. sorry if youre misunderstanding me i dont know how else to put it.

I dont think I played on the same lobby as you today, but some people ADS around every corner.  I know I do, I ADS before turning a corner if I can.  I use the wiimote though.
