Trick to improve the aiming in BF3 on Xbox console

Hello, I've discovered a neat trick a couple days ago, that improves your aiming on the xbox by a huge margin, making it smoother and more responsive, much like in the BETA.

Its been confirmed by numerous sources now, so its not a placebo as I initially thought.


What you do is,
1. Launch Bf3.
2. Load your profile
3. While in Main menu
4. Unlug your controller.
5. Plug it back in.
6. Enjoy

You need to do this trick every time you launch Bf3. To undo it, simply dashboard and launch Bf3 again.

To see the real difference w/without this trick;
1. Dashboard
2. Launch bf3
3. Load any Campaign level
4. Track an object
5. Unplug&replug your controller.

Please share this, as more people need to be made aware.

Hope it helps!

Has this been tested with the wireless controllers?

Re: Trick to improve the aiming in BF3 on Xbox console

I gave it a go and I have only noticed one thing, It makes your sensitivity rediculous! I play on max sensitivity anyway and you can 360 bloody fast. However it is so quick its pointless, you cannot re-adjust your aim while ADS easily.

I used to be an asker like you, then I took a search bar to the knee....

I have not tested it on a wireless version, but I'd imagine it would have the same effect. Try it out?

My bad, that could be misleading, let me reword that;

I've asked around ~20 people to test this out and to my surprise they all confirmed that it did indeed work.

That's because you've become accustomed to the "heavy/sluggish" feel of the aiming, this trick allows you to micro aim & "snap to" targets much easier on lower/medium sensitivities as the controls become more responsive.



Anyway, something does indeed happen with the aiming after you un/re-plug your 360 controller in BF3.

Re: Trick to improve the aiming in BF3 on Xbox console

I tried this earlier and didn't see any noticeable effect with my aiming. I unplugged/replugged my controller in both the main menu and in game and neither seemed to change anything.

Interesting, what model is your 360? Are you using a wired/wireless controller? Is it a 3rd party or the official controller?

If you could try this;

1. Dashboard/Restart
2. Launch BF3
3. Load any Campaign/MP level
4. Track a small object while strafing left&right
5. Unplug&replug your controller
6. The micro adjustments while aiming should now be more precise

Re: Trick to improve the aiming in BF3 on Xbox console

I tried this with using the silver Microsoft wireless controller and really couldn't tell if disconnecting (holding the Xbox button and selecting Turn Off Controller then turning it back on) the controller provides any significant change. Maybe it removed the slight (and I mean slight) input lag I noticed before trying this. Maybe you see a greater effect on higher sensitivity settings but I play only one "notch" more sensitive than default and didn't see any real difference.

Re: Trick to improve the aiming in BF3 on Xbox console

Looks like most of you here see a difference after using this trick.

Might anyone have a theory on what actually happens to the aiming?
