Modern Warfare 3 players demand removal of “disgusting” aiming feature

Modern Warfare 3 is the latest installment in the popular Call of Duty franchise, but not all players are happy with the game. One of the most controversial features is the random aiming mechanic, which causes the player’s crosshair to sway unpredictably. Many players have expressed their frustration and disgust with this feature, and are urging the developers, Sledgehammer Games, to remove it from the game.

The random aiming feature is intended to add realism and challenge to the game, but many players find it annoying and unfair. The feature affects all weapons in the game, and makes it harder to aim accurately at enemies. Some players have compared it to having a drunk or shaky hand, and have called it “disgusting”, “ridiculous”, and “horrible”.

One player shared a clip on Reddit, showing how the random aiming feature ruined his shot at an enemy sniper. The player had a clear line of sight and was about to pull the trigger, when his crosshair suddenly moved to the left, causing him to miss his target. The player wrote: “Please remove this disgusting feature. It’s not realistic, it’s not fun, it’s not fair.”

Some players said that the feature made them feel sick or dizzy, and that it ruined their enjoyment of the game. Others said that the feature gave an unfair advantage to players who used aim assist or mouse and keyboard, and that it made the game unplayable for console players.

Sledgehammer Games responds to player feedback

Sledgehammer Games, the developers of Modern Warfare 3, have been listening to the player feedback and have addressed some of the issues raised by the community.
