Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 both have more options for controller players than any previous games. That can be great for customization but it’s also overwhelming without an outline. It can be hard to tell what the best aim assist settings on controller are when there are no stats to explain them.
What makes choosing the best settings even more difficult are the constant updates as Season 1 continues to get ironed out for both sides of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. But updates are starting to settle and we know which aim assist settings are now the best. Our guide will go over the aim and stick settings you need so that each shot counts.
Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 – Best Aim Assist Settings
In the current state of MW2 and Warzone 2, the best aim assist option available is the default one. This may sound obvious enough, but many players have already changed theirs away from default shortly after launch day. Initially, players figured out that another aim assist setting was nearly broken.
Black Ops was one of the latest settings that we could experiment with, and players quickly realized that the other options paled in comparison. However, Infinity Ward recently stealth nerfed the Black Ops aim assist option. That means we’re left with the other three choices: default, precision, and focusing.
Precision offers too little in the way of aim assist and Focusing simply inhibits the player or holds their hand. Default now allows for the most fluid movement and slowdown as enemies come into view. For the time being, this is the aiming option you’ll want to stick with in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.
To enhance your aim, you can also change your aim response curve type in the controller settings just below the aim assist type. For this, you want the dyanmic curve type which allows for more accurate aiming and rotational aim assist.
