- The Finals is a fresh new arena-based shooter with live service mechanics.
- The game has settled extremely well with players and critics alike for its highly enjoyable gameplay.
- A new patch released by Embark Studios removes the aim assist exploit that some have been abusing.
Labeled a “small but mighty patch” from one of the devs over at Embark, the new update for The Finals really does take swift care of a persisting issue that has been plaguing player experience for a good while now. Turns out, some discovered an exploitative use of key-mapping software that offered them an edge in terms of aim assist, but the abuse has since been dealt with, finally, with patch 6 of the game.
Today we have a small patch that addresses community feedback on aim assist, fair play, and bug fixes. These changes are the result of an in-depth review of how aim assist works — something we’ve only been able to validate with a player base as large as ours (thanks so much for playing our game, yolks!),” reads the blog post detailing the new update.
The “Aim Assistance” aspect of The Finals’ gameplay is what this patch focuses on, and thus makes the appropriate efforts to address the majority of player complaints and other issues. Players are overly relieved that the aim assist exploit has been taken care of after a period of frustration and bitterness. Here is a rundown of all the new changes patch 6 has brought for the chaotic first-person shooter:
- Zoom Snapping Angular Velocity now has a max cap, preventing unintended rapid 90-degree turns.
- Camera Magnetism will be reduced to 35% from 50%, making player aim less sticky and lowering controller accuracy.
- Aim assist will ignore invisible players, fixing a bug with the existing system.
- Clients running key re-mapping programs on PC will not have access to aim assist.
As the news found itself circulating on Reddit, r/VikuSam comments, “Immediately and swiftly obliterating reWASD is the most based and respect worthy thing in this entire blog. I’m so glad these are the notes we get to see instead of ‘we’re looking into it and highly appreciate your patience.'” The remark is an obvious jab to Respawn’s Apex Legends, which as per the players, still hasn’t dismissed the allowance of mapping programs, such as reWASD and others.
In earlier times, the playing community of The Finals pushed back and voiced their concerns over the sprawling amounts of hackers and cheaters in the title, and therefore, called for a resolution to the matter. Not long after that, the devs did release a ban wave, but ended up restricting the innocent more than the guilty. Luckily, the issue was rectified soon following that hiccup.
