    Why Aim Assist Needs To Be A Thing For Controller Players on PC

    I know this is a very uncommon concern since many PC players use a keyboard and mouse, but hear me out before you type your hate comments. I know what many of you might be thinking. Why don't you play on a console or learn how to use a keyboard and mouse? To answer the first question, I do not have a console and it does not make any sense to buy a console just to play Paladins. To answer the second question, I have always preferred playing games with a controller and many PC games come with controller support and aim assist nowadays. Fortnite is a good example of this.

    So why does Paladins have controller support but not aim assist as well? Champions like Androxus, Kinessa, and Cassie require precise aim that can be very difficult when using a controller. Having an aim assist feature would make be more helpful for controller players that like me who cannot use certain champions because of having to be precise with aiming. The aim assist does not have to be extreme by any means and that would be ridiculous if it was. Just enough to make controller players hit shots more consistently.

    These are just my thoughts though. Feel free to share your opinions on this as long as it is not hateful comments.

    No, just no

    If you want to play with a controller just play the game on xbox doest cost you anything.

    A better request would be to be able to use your PC login on xbox so you can maintain your acheivments and skins and what not.
    If your teams SUCKS and you find that you can not do anything,... You Suck!

    The road to recovery lies in admitting You SUCK!

    Doing well with a good team is no indication of true skill.
    Stop name calling an admit that you can do better, and you will.

    DONT BE AFRAID TO DIE, ITS THE ONLY WAY TO LEARN NOT TOO...

    Yeah, and then give aim assist for players with a mouse and keyboard as well, even in tournaments, because why not?

    Playing an FPS is not about playing with a controller. And you know... When a player with a controller meets a player with a mouse+keyboard the player with a controller is already a dead player.

    I switched from controllers to kb/m. Was weird as hell for a while but definitely worth it

    Well in order to make a response that isn't just "No...nope...no..just no...crazy...nope" there's something I have to point out first.
    There's a reason you don't see a lot of pro players playing with controllers with these kinds of games. In an FPS a controller is very limited in comparison to a mouse and keyboard. In a game where flankers are all about, with a mouse you can turn around quickly with a simply swift motion and have better control over how fast your character turns.

    With a controller you can't move one direction, and then look in the other direction just as fast, and have less control over how fast your character looks in that direction to be able to vary between "turn as fast as you can and look behind you" to "turn a little to catch that sniper with my shield". This is why you have aim assist on consoles to compensate, since you don't hook up a mouse to your consoles.

    With PC few people need aim assist because they have the mouse, so if they made that into an option in a PC game, they'd be putting a buff meant to compensate in console games onto a platform where most people don't need it, which would make it so that it'd instead compensate for lack of skill.

    This means it's impossible to put aim assist on controllers in PC, without making it so that everyone regardless of skill has a much better ability to aim, meaning practicing it meaningless. It'd be throwing away the hard work of other players to help out a vast minority play slightly better when they're already at a disadvantage using a controller, and it wouldn't help you to such an extent that you'd outplay someone with a mouse who now has aim assist.
