Overwatch 2 has mostly kept the settings from the original game but it still took a few weird ones and made people's aiming feel weird.

Blizzard goofed on yet another front in Overwatch 2 as the players started feeling something is off with their aim. 

No one claimed that they used to be able to 360 no scope people with Sojourn's Railgun previously but mostly everyone reported being unable to reach the damage numbers they could in the original game.

As it turns out, the reasons for this are a few settings that were changed without your knowledge, as was  discovered by a Redditor who did their research.

First, the Aim Smoothing setting started affecting mouse input for some reason, which is likely why you can't move your crosshairs in a snappy fashion like you could before. To disable it, go to Menu, Options, Controls, Controller, pop up the Advanced section and move the Aim Smoothing Slider from 100 to 0 per cent.

This setting may not do anything for you if you don't have a controller connected.

High-precision mouse input may not be always useful but it can help on a rare occasion that could mean the difference between victory and defeat. You can find this one under the Gameplay tab in the Options menu.

Dynamic Render Scale is on by default and it could be messing with your performance since it will change the game's resolution on the fly which can be disorienting, thus making your aiming worse.

Additionally, you can disable Camera Shake and HUD movement in order to stabilise your aim further.

If you have a high refresh rate monitor, you might want to double-check the graphics settings to see if the game set the refresh rate lower than it's supposed to. In essence, you might be losing FPS just because the game capped them, even if your PC can handle more.
