When To Adjust Motion Control Sensitivity
Adjust Based On Your Aim
Once you get used to the Motion Control feature, gradually increase your Motion Control sensitivity according to your aim. Basically, the higher the sensitivity, the faster the possible response speed will be.
Viewpoint Reset With Y Button
Press the Y Button to reset the viewpoint and return the camera to face front. Repeat, reset, and explore the optimal sensitivity for your aim.
Fine Adjustments Depending On Weapons & Switch Mode
Appropriate sensitivity changes are recommended depending on the Weapons and Switch Mode (TV or Handheld) you play in. Don't forget to fine tune your sensivity depending on the Switch Mode and the weapons you use.
If It Doesn't Fit, Try Lowering Sensitivity
If the sensitivity is too fast, try lowering it. Adjust the sensitivity to figure out how fast or slow will make it easier for you to play with.
Use The Two targets At The Shooting Range As A Guide
|Shifts Beyond The Target||Lower sensitivity because it's too high|
|Shifts Slowly To Target||Increase sensitivity because it's too low|
For specific adjustment methods, we will introduce how to alter the two targets in the shooting area. Match the sensitivity according to the direction in which the aim is out of the target.
Select Sharp Shooter Weapons
Sharp Shooter are weapons with no blur at all. It's perfect for accurate sensitivity, so be sure to try Sharp Shooters.
