First of all, this game has one of the tamest recoils I’ve ever encountered in an FPS. It’s so weak I barely feel it, and I never felt the need to equip that recoil reducing gear in the first place.
Second of all, to top it off, there is an option in gameplay section that, if toggled on, tries to return your aim to the original position when you shoot. It’s a counter-recoil measure.
The question is: If you have an in-game anti-recoil solution, why do you make available even stronger solution against recoil in the game options?
