Naughty Dog says Uncharted 3 aiming is not broken

Posted By | On 03rd, Nov. 2011

Naughty Dog has explained that the aiming in Uncharted 3 is fine and they don’t find any issues with it. If you have played Uncharted 3 you would notice that the aiming is different compared to Uncharted 2, which caused a major problem as fans started complaining.

Arne Meyer, community manager from Naughty Dog said that it was fine and explained why it works that way.

“In Uncharted 2 the bullets would leave the barrel at a pre-set deviation when you were aimed in. What this means is that the bullets would not fire straight out of the barrel all the time – they could come out at an angle. Therefore, you could have a target clearly in the reticule and still miss it by a wide margin. This was frustrating, because it was difficult to tell why you were missing a target.

“As a result, we wanted to be sure you had a better grasp of whether you were hitting or missing a target. In Uncharted 3 the bullets now fire straight out of the barrel 100 per cent of the time. However, we have recoil – where the reticule moves/bounces as you fire. Therefore, it is easier to tell if you are missing or hitting a target. Now it is much more obvious when you are hitting or missing based on the reticule itself.”

“With Uncharted 2 it was pretty much guaranteed you would aim in one of the eight directions and it was hard to deviate from that (imagine it being almost like a traditional eight-way arcade stick). With Uncharted 3, you can deviate from the straight path from each of the eight directions much easier and more precisely.”
