What Is Zoom Snapping In The Finals And How To Use It

Playing The Finals on a controller? You should enable zoom snapping.

The Finals is a very competitive FPS shooter that lets you get into the game no matter what your skill level is. As such you get the choice of using both a keyboard & mouse or a controller to play. But everyone knows that mouse aiming is very precise when compared to a controller. So to compensate for it games usually give aim assist to players using a controller. However, Zoom Snapping is a feature that you can enable in The Finals to give your opponents a run for their money.

Zoom Snapping as the name suggests is a feature that when you are using ADS and zoom in on an enemy, the crosshair snaps to them. So to give you a vague explanation when you aim in the general direction of your enemy and zoom in, your aim snaps to them. Do remember this is an oversimplification of how it works. You still need to have some precision with your aiming when attacking someone and cannot expect zooming in to get you free kills.

However, if you are worried about it being too broken then fear not. Patch 1.4.1 addressed a lot of the problems that players had been reporting about the game’s aim assist. Some of the highlights in this update included the prevention of zoom snapping on unintended rapid 90-degree turns, its time being reduced to 0.3 from 0.25 seconds, and more.
