Ninja had called upon his community to protest. He even asked other influential controller players to look into the matter. He often pointed out that he wasn’t against giving controllers aim-assist, he just wanted it to be fair.

On May 29, Epic reportedly nerfed the controller on PC. Yet it did not seem to make much of difference. People were still bugged by how broken controllers were.

But today, suddenly, players felt their aim assist was not working. Season 4 just released and the Marvel collaboration had everyone excited. PC players had a massive update of 20GB. Furthermore, the aim assist seemed to be off.

Soon after, rumors started circulating that Epic had removed aim-assist on PC.

The nerf was supposed to only affect controller players on PC. Yet, there were reports of console players having their aim assist turned off.
