Following the removal of a maddening Aim Assist glitch in Vanguard, Warzone devs discovered a similar issue plaguing the battle royale.

Vanguard’s Aim Assist has been a constant frustration for controller players, and while it’s finally been fixed in the Season 2 Reloaded update, a similar issue has been discovered in Warzone.

The discovery was made with the help of Sledgehammer Games shortly after they removed an identical issue from Vanguard. Given that Sledgehammer has immediate experience with Aim Assist issues the hope is that they can come together with Raven Software and provide a timely fix.

As Vanguard and Warzone Season 2 Reloaded get underway, the devs have prepared some major updates that are set to improve the overall quality of both games. Since Vanguard Season 1, Sledgehammer were investigating a major issue that caused Aim Assist to malfunction.

Along with the Vanguard Season 2 Reloaded patch notes, Sledgehammer revealed the root of the problem, “The Aim Assist bug resulted from the system not waiting for the “player visibility check” before running an action. In certain scenarios, the system was left to assume that no player was visible”.

Although they claim that it was a difficult issue to solve, the team at Sledgehammer are optimistic that it will no longer plague Vanguard matches. However, their update also revealed that a similar issue is running rampant in Warzone.

Unfortunately, there is no official date as to when we could receive the fix for Warzone. It’s disappointing that this new major issue was discovered right before an important update but players can be thankful that both Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software are working on providing a solution in the coming weeks.

The collaboration between developers is a great sign and should result in the fastest solution possible. Players are eager to test out the new Rebirth Island changes and hopefully an occasional lack of Aim Assist won’t ruin the fun for console players.
