wtf is with the aiming when you look through a scope?

#1 Edited by Viggo (13 posts) -

Just come across this today. Why the hell have they done this and why did they actually think it was a good idea? You look through a scope on a weapon and all of a sudden left stick becomes aim as opposed to right stick like it normally is. Not only that it moves your character about a little too. This is ridiculous. It literally makes the controls southpaw when you look through a scope. What's the crack? Is this actually deliberate or a glitch? This shit needs fixing.

360 version btw

Apparently there's a glitch with scopes when you're using inverted controls. I've heard of people having this problem, but whenever I played a sniper section in my game it was always on the right stick. It says on their support site that they're looking into it.

Ahhh ok, cheers. The sniper section in my game is also fine. It only happens during normal play and multi-player when you use a gun with a scope on it. And yeah I use inverted. I can't play on normal. All the many years of using inverted just makes a game near unplayable on normal for me now. I can't adapt to it. Although I might have to try then because this southpaw glitch issue is horrendous. It's completely unplayable with that.

Glad it is a glitch though and not some bizarre design choice. Although how the hell does something like this get through QA.

lol. skyrim sold a bajillion copies and won a bazillion GOTY awards.

devs don't do QA anymore. they release broken games and try to fix them with patches. and people still line up to buy them.
