I remember during Modern Warfare, i was fucking awesome at tracking and flicking and accuracy in general. Opponents would regularly message me asking if i was running hax cause of how tight my anus.......i mean aiming was. Anyways, fast forward to now and even after 800 hours on overwatch i still suck donkey dick and its pissing me off!

Ive tried everything from experimenting with every single control scheme and setting to playing a user created game mode where i can only hit headshots and nadda, nothing is working. I regularly get out gunned by kids in gold and even silver, i feel derpy as fuck!!

Im aware the console is inferior to pc and even the overwatch aiming system isnt as tight as CODs but still, other players can clearly manage.

So whats likely the cause, im 31 now and during MW i was......younger (not sure when it came out), could that be it, is my brain just having mini strokes, help please

Make sure you don't have input lag.  Disable your vibration on the control if you haven't already.  Try attaching some Kontrol Freaks and upping your sensitivity.

No lag, i will try those freaks though, i keep hearing great things about them, i just find it hard to believe some simple $20 item can improve aim THAT much but it does seem to be the case. Thnx for suggesting that since i forgot about em.

You probably got a new TV with a different lag time. Look up display lag for your TV. If the number is over 40 it's the TV.

Ive had this tv for 5 years and never noticed anything, although i didnt play MW on it, but damn, i didnt even know tv lag was a thing.

Do you play on a different sized screen?

Few people realize how important that is.

Nah

Did you play MW on a CRT tv? Those had zero lag.

Dont think so, it was flat screen......not sure if those can be CRT

Pretty much one of my main reasons for migrating to mostly console gaming these days I used to destroy everyone back in my  *youth* on Quake 3  with mouse and keyboard but these days I'm complete shite at fps with them so at least with consoles the gamepad tightens up the skill bracket of players :D
