Battlefield 2042 in Trouble - Aim Assist Not Working in Console Versions

Those who played Battlefield 2042 prior to its release have reported that the aim assist option doesn't work at all in the console versions.

The official launch of Battlefield 2042 will take place in a few days, but some players have already started playing in early access. The day before yesterday we wrote about the technical glitches they encountered, and now we're adding problems with aiming on consoles to the list.

The official support forum has filled up with posts from players claiming that the aim assist is not working in the console editions of Battlefield 2042. As a result, hitting distant enemies on the gamepad is almost impossible.

This is a clear error, and not a deliberately designed solution. The game enables you to toggle this feature on and off in the menu, but activating the assist has no effect. In addition, players know very well how aim assist should work in action, because they have a comparison with previous installments.

This problem appears on both PlayStation 4/5, as well as Xbox One and XSX|S. The bug has already been reported to the developers, so it remains to be hoped that they will fix it before the game's official release.

Battlefield 2042 will launch on November 19, 2021. It will be released simultaneously on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.

If you are not afraid of technical issues and want to play the game right now, you can do it by buying Battlefield 2042's Ultimate or Gold edition. Alternatively, if you pay for EA Play subscription, you can check out the game trial, offering ten hours of fun.
