There is an open war in Overwatch 2 between console and PC players, all because of how targeting has been managed

Overwatch 2 is being talked about week after week, day after day, since its official launch on October 4. The hero shootereither hero sand, from Blizzard has come across a large number of players who have decided to return to the multiplayer proposal after years without enjoying the first, now deceased; others simply out of curiosity. But not everything is good news around the shooterand it seems that we are facing a war between PC and console gamersand the reason is pointed.

We already anticipated earlier this week that the PC version had a aiming assistance or certain legacy console techniques that only hinder the PC experience. Players on this platform do without these aids thanks to the possibilities of peripherals and DPI, but it is something inherent to consoles. However, crossplay is driving PlayStation and Xbox gamers upside down because it is disabled when playing with PC users.

While on this platform the game seems to have a problem with the controller options even if it is disabled, on the other side of the border the situation is still not good. As highlighted yesterday in Kotaku, “some players simply enjoy the game less by being in disadvantage“. Almost any shooter multiplayer on the market that has cross-play features enables these aids in order not to frustrate the console player, but they are not a disadvantage for the PC user either.

In short, it brings both platforms closer to a “no man’s land” where even with everything, the PC player has a greater ease of aiming. “It’s a total bummer because PC gamers already perform better on average, so it hits like a double whammy,” they add on Reddit.

Apex Legends, as PcGamer highlights, was at the center of controversy a while ago because many argued that the console gamers they had a great short distance advantage. This is because the aim assist would make short movements in close combat a little easier, which translates into more accurate shots.

A debate that has jumped to Twitter with users dissatisfied and criticizing a decision that will, at the end of the day, favor the PC player while the console player is forced to disable cross-play. At the moment, the development team has not commented on it, but activating it could calm the waters for a time. Although it remains to be seen how its activation affects cross games.
