Mouse-like Precision Without Aim Assist: Making Good Gyro Controls

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Despite being strongly associated with unreliable gimmicks, the motion sensors found in modern controllers offer mouse-like precision when used correctly. There are many gotchas and bad habits that we've picked up from implementing stick aiming over the last two decades, but a good gyro aiming implementation makes your game more approachable to new players, more accessible to those with some kinds of disabilities, and raises the skill ceiling for competitive players. Done right, good gyro controls drastically reduce the gap between keyboard & mouse players and controller players, and even remove the need for aim assist except as an accessibility option.

Let's talk about how to do them right.
