With Call of Duty: Warzone using crossplay, the community is split between controller and mouse and keyboard. While a mouse typically offers more precision, YouTuber JGOD explained why he thinks controller is the better option.
Like almost any triple-A shooter on the market, Warzone pits both controller and mouse and keyboard players against each other. There’s long been a debate about which input is better, with each having its unique pros and cons.
Mouse and keyboard offers much more precision and fine-aim control, but a controller’s aim assist does a ton of the work for you, allowing you to snap on and track players with ease — especially at close-range.
In an August 10 stream, YouTuber JGOD explained why he feels controller players will always have the edge, and why there’s no reason to use a keyboard and mouse.
“I think it’s easy for any controller player to kill any keyboard and mouse player,” explained JGOD. “It’s literally what aim assist is for.”
“I don’t understand why people play on keyboard and mouse on CoD, it’s just asking for frustrations with the game,” he continued. “I would say even if you’re really good on keyboard and mouse, you probably feel really good, but you watch your killcam and you always feel cheated.”
JGOD is so confident in controller and aim assist’s power that he believes that if he put 100 controller and 100 keyboard and mouse players against each other at random, “the controller players would dominate the keyboard and mouse players on average.”
He did say that this probably wouldn’t be the case in Apex Legends, but in Warzone, “the controller players would dominate them.”
Whether aim assist will be tweaked in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 remains to be seen, but JGOD believes that nerfing aim assist wouldn’t work because the high-skilled players would continue to dominate and lower-skilled players would struggle even more.
