The Finals Nerfs Aim Assist in New Update

The Finals players who've kept up with community's pain points and Embark Studios responses to those issues will know all too well by now the aim assist arc the game's gone through. Players pointed out the strengths of aim assist and its ability to snap right onto enemies even when using high-powered weapons like the scoped SR-84 rifle, and complaints about aim assist quickly led to players asking for input-based matchmaking. Embark Studios said recently that it'd have some updates on some of the most pressing issues in The Finals, and this week, a new patch for the game addressed one of those frustrations by nerfing aim assist.

Patch 1.4.1 for The Finals is technically regarded as a "small patch," but as Embark Studios said in its announcement about the update's release, it's still a big one. Embark Studios thanked players for their feedback and said the changes in question were made possible by the community.

"These changes are the result of an in-depth review of how aim assist works – something we've only been able to validate with a player base as large as ours (thanks so much for playing our game, yolks!)," Embark Studios said in its post about the update.
