Best aim assist settings in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

There are several customizable settings in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War that significantly impact gameplay. One of the crucial settings is the aim assist setting. Aim assist settings in CoD apply to players using a gamepad as an input device, not keyboard and mouse users.

In this article, we discussed the best possible combination of aim assist settings to use. These, however, do not include stick sensitivity as this is a matter of personal preference and varies for each player. Before knowing the best aim assist settings in Black Ops Cold War, let's start by understanding the functions of each setting.



All cold war aim assist modes

  • STANDARD: “Traditional aiming slowed down near the target. »
  • LEGACY: “Alternate aiming slow motion near target. This type of aim assist is the default in Call of Duty: Warzone. »
  • CLARIFICATION: “Strong aiming slowdown that only triggers when aiming closer to the target. Ideal for precise players. »
  • FOCUS: “A strong aiming snare that also triggers when narrowly missing the target. Ideal for beginner players to aim with precision”.

    The aim assist slow takes effect when your reticle approaches an enemy player. This slows down close range sensitivity so you can aim accurately. Rotating aiming aid keeps your reticle aligned with the target as you move.


    Accuracy and Focus settings are not used more often by gamers. This is because the slowdown is too strong and disrupts aiming a lot. These settings are also considered exploits because they apparently force you to "lock" on the target.

    Standard aim assist is preferred by most pro players as it is the most balanced of them all. Also, Precision and Focusing are a good choice for players who like sniping. However, you can experiment with all of these settings to see which works best for you.
