Top 5 Reasons Why Your Aim is Inconsistent in FPS Games


Hello, and welcome to FPS coach, in this video,
i’m going to talk about the top 5 reasons that cause inconsistencies to your aim. Let’s start with an often overlooked reason,
and that’s your ability to consistently position your body to your equipment. This
includes how close you sit to the desk, your posture, arm position and mouse grip. The
challenge we have as FPS gamers is every time we sit down to play, we have to figure out
how to consistently position ourselves the same way time and time again. Which can be
a challenging and elusive task because it’s difficult to realize when we’re just a little
off in any of our alignments. The second reason why your aim is inconsistent, which is the
most obvious reason, but the one I know many of you are guilty of, and that’s being consistent
with your settings and equipment. Things like sensitivity, mouse, mousepad, resolution,
crosshair, and aspect ratio. I see too often gamers changing their settings
every day looking for a quick fix. For example, if they are undershooting one day, they’ll
raise their sensitivity, and another day if they are overshooting, they’ll lower their
sensitivity. The problem with this is that because as humans,
we are naturally great at adapting and using our hand eye coordination – so when we switch
sensitivities, mice, and other settings, we can essentially play decent no matter any
change. So this tricks us into giving us confidence if we happen to do well on the new change. It’s fine to experiment with settings and
equipment, but try working towards committing to a final choice – this way you can start
building your muscle memory. The third reason is you may need to create
or revise your current warmup routine. Not even the best aimers in the world can instantly
hop straight into the server and aim with their best ability. I wish I could provide
some magical warmup routine that works for everyone, but there are just too many variables
to consider. The major variable being which game you play and if it requires a large range
of motion in the X and Y axis like Fortnite, or if the game is more horizontal like CS:GO,
or more flicky motions required in Quake. And other variables like in-game sensitivity
or if you’re a sniper or rifle user. Some players are strict and regimented with
their routine with every minute planned out with the same drills, while others only take
a few minutes. Work towards building a routine that replicates
the most common range of motions that you use in your game and with enough time so that
you awaken your hand so that you can feel the hand to mouse to sensitivity connection. The fourth reason your aim is inconsistent
is your energy level and state of mind. It’s no secret that less or bad sleep causes slower
reaction and processing time, which heavily influences our hand eye coordination, but
it also causes drier eyes which affects our visual registration to see the crosshair and
game models and textures. If you’ve had lackluster sleep the night before, you shouldn’t
expect to play your best. As for state mind, I mean things like if you
actually are in the mood to play the game. I think we’ve all been there before, where
we know we shouldn’t be playing, but we force it anyways, and most of the time, it
doesn’t result in our best performances. So my mom and dad comment for this video would
be to try and take care of your real life responsibilities and things that could be
affecting your mental health first so that you can fully enjoy and focus on the game. And last but not the least, somedays, you
will face players that are simply playing amazing that day, and with the amount of gamers
out there, you’re bound to face some that have practiced twice the time as you. And
these players will make you feel like your aim is bad, but in reality it’s because
they know the stronger angles, timings, and positions – and these are the players you
just have to tip your hat to, until you get better
