What were you doing when the issue occurred? E.g. respawning a squad mate at a beacon, using an ability, a squad mate left the game. Trying to ADS

How many matches had you played in a row before the issue occurred? Every match
When did this happen? (dd.mm.yy hh:mm)
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
How severe is your issue? Major impacts to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? ADS is inconsistent, often popping in and out of ADS while I'm trying to hold the mouse button down, sometimes ADS doesn't even seem to work at all, and requires a few mouse clicks to even register.
What should be happening instead? Typical "hold to ADS" behavior: ADS while I'm holding the button down
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? ADS with equipped weapon.

I changed the default ADS toggle, to "Hold to ADS" like most other games are configured.

@one-bun  Thank you. Can you check and make sure that toggle ADS is completely unbound, and that Hold to ADS only has the one bind?

If this isn't a factor, can you try using another mouse as a test, just to eliminate the possibility of a hardware issue(I have a mouse at home that's fine for general use, but I can't game with it as I get similar issues with RMB)

Well, I plugged in an older mouse and I don't seem to be experiencing the same issues.

 

I don't recall seeing that behavior in other titles though, which is why I believed this to be a game issue.

Hey, I am having a similar issue, no problem in any other games but the hold to ADS is not working at all, it stays on toggle, I am using a Logitech G502. Help would be appreciated

I am having this same exact issue "often popping in and out of ADS while I'm trying to hold the mouse button down, sometimes ADS doesn't even seem to work at all, and requires a few mouse clicks to even register." I use Hold to ADS and as well. Doesnt seem to be hardware issue.

In Addition to the above, it’s only the right mouse button that will cause this issue - rebounding gold to ads to any other button on the mouse will not cause this issue to happen - taser naga 2014  here

I have the same problem. I tried to play with an other mouse but it is doing the same thing. Do you have some idea to fix it? The two mouses has different marks... For example one is rocket kova and the other is urage that i bought yesterday. I thought my mouse has a problem.

It looks like this, but in apex:
