1: check the settings files for Aim speed, if there is one.
2: Axton has a skill for this. Called Expertise. Increases your aim speed down sights 70%. With 5/5. With UCP patch it’s 100% at 5/5 and so is movement speed.
3: I’m not confused now, but my advice remains the same. If you can’t find any way to fix it… Aim down sights for getting crits, and try to avoid getting stuck in your sights. Snipers are just another gun type here. That whole mechanic would change how your character moves and feels. I don’t know who’s fault is at stake, i don’t care. I’m genuinely sorry this is frustrating for you, this could be fixed in the settings, but I’m not sure. It’s not in-game settings, which are fun to run through. Ive had to do it myself.
There is no way to adjust what I’m asking. I’ve looked online, looked through my settings, looked for mods. There’s other’s that share this issue because the only option that’s recommended is using DPI shift which requires 3rd party software only available on select mice. Expertise adjusts how fast you aim down the sights from the hip. So Hip to Scope to Hip is what that effects.
The issue without having a modifiable ADS setting is that let’s say you’re a player that uses a medium to high sens; half of a high number is a lot, but if you go from doing 2-3 inches being a 360, 50% of that is now what, 4-6 inches? If you’re a player like me and a lot of other players that run very low sens with precision, like 400 dpi and low in game, then my 2 feet it takes to do a 360 is now double. Now, I’m not wanting to do 360s scoped in, but when you’re aiming down sights, it’s extremely annoying to aim because it becomes so low that aiming with most weapons turns into hipfire as much as you can and weapons with reverse recoil are literally unusable.
Turning my sensitivity up would screw me up in almost any other game because they’re pretty close. The multiplier is set very low and being able to adjust this would make a world of difference to a lot of players, not just me. I’m not frustrated that it’s not there as I can compensate, but if asking for this would make it easier on me and others that don’t have the options that I do. I’m not kidding, I literally plug in another mouse that I have a custom profile setup just to play these games. I hold a button and it turns my DPI from 400 to about 600 or 650 while I hold it. It’s amazing, but should be unnecessary.
Then there’s those that argue it without understanding as if it would ruin the game. It would not make the game any worse or anymore unfair. It would make it more fun and easier to play without impacting the mechanics of the game. That’s the frustrating part is being argued with and the arguments being find a gun with a better scope and turn up weapon zoom speed.
Sorry for all the walls of text everybody. I’ve made my points, don’t really feel like arguing this anymore. Almost any modern shooter has these settings, and Borderlands doesn’t have any special mechanic that would make it game breaking or unnecessary. If you feel that’s the case, well I’m sorry. Not really anything else I can say.
