Aim assist is an important option in Warzone 3 settings. The game features four types of ADS aim assist:

  2. Precision: The Precision mode is recommended for seasoned players who have mastered the art of analog aiming.
  3. Focusing: This is best for newbies who are still mastering first-person shooter games on a controller.
  4. Black Ops: Black Ops, as the name suggests, is the type of aim assist used in Black Ops games like Cold War.

Depending on your skill level, you can choose the best aim assist setting. The detailed combination is as follows:

  • Target aim assist: On
  • Aim assist type: Default
  • ADS aim assist: On
  • Third person ADS correction type: Assist
