Snipers and Aim Assist

So I'm not the greatest sniper but I'm also not the worst, haven't been doing it for very long, anyway. I've been using 1k stare and eirene and I've noticed that I tend to hit some super bullshit head shots with 1k but it's harder to hit those same shots with eirene. I've always heard that aim assist is how slow the reticule travels when aiming over a target but why does 1k stare feel like it has suuuuch a huge hitbox? I've hit shoulders and it counted as a precision. With eirene, not even chin shots count as a headshot. I have to actually get a legit headshot. A lot more difficult but still do able. What do you guys think? Have you noticed a massive difference when using 1k stare and other snipers. Btw same huge hitbox when using her benevolence, and my bad for writing a mini essay haha

    It's not really the hitbox, it's just the game slowing down your sensitivity when you pass over an enemy. 1000-Yard Stare/Her Benevolence have a noticeable 'slowdown' or stickiness to enemies, while the Eirene doesn't allowing for you to land shots that you normally wouldn't have in regards to your ability to aim. tl;dr [spoiler]1000-Yard Stare holds your hand and helps you aim better, Eirene doesn't.[/spoiler]

  • AA Mostly has to do with bullet magnetism in this game. Those with high AA like 1k stare are more forgiving if you're not on target. Therefore it's much easier to master. I personally use Eirene because it's less lenient and using stare just feels cheap. That and I don't want to completely suck when I switch over to MCC every once and a while because I was so pampered by destiny AA

    • 1k stare is definitely in the lead of snipers because it's the most bullshit one. I've been forced to pickup a sniper with this new bs sniping meta and the 1k is definitely the cheapest one. Idk how people could possibly argue otherwise. Sure there's others that are easier but they can't rez snipe. 1k is great for any scenario.

      • Do you have evidence of said shoulder shots? Because there are plenty of videos our there that show people missing within centimeters of peoples heads and not getting the kill. Of course some snipers are going to feel snappier then others. But aim assistance will do you no good against decent players. All it does is help when it comes to drag shots. If thats all you do, which is relatively difficult, then you will benefit.

          • As I replied in another post , its about learning the scope and feel of a sniper, not the AA. back in HoW I used an ldr with ambush (-10 aa) and efrideets spear . I learned to dragscopes easy . Then TTK arrived . I got my shortgaze stare, and I starts missing shots because I wasn't used to the feel of the gun or the scope. I have since adjusted , but you do have to learn a weapon, especially with snipers .
