What happens when the bug occurs? On PS4 there is a slight movement of the cross hair going up or to the side.
What should be happening instead? Shouldn't be moving by itself.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? It is more apparent if you have the response curve to linear but happens with any response curve at a different degree. My settings are: Ultra High sensitivity, Super High sensitivity ADS, Look Deadzone None.

I tried it on a new controller as well. It is not the controllers fault.

Advanced look controls, deadzone is off.

★★★★ Novice



I have been playing Apex Legends a lot and when it became available for us to use advanced look controls I started to mess about with them, quite unsuccessfully at the start. Now after quite some time of tweaking them I believe I have what is the best controls settings for me. There is, however, a problem. The deadzone on my right analog stick leans slightly to the right, this means I cannot hit my outer threshold value when going to the right, but can easily on the left. I have switched back to in game settings and the threshold seems to work perfectly on both sides. Another friend who use his own ALC settings has noticed the same in his deadzone. My controller is also only a week old and is a v2 model. Can you explain why this is and how to fix it?


Thank you.

I am talking about my right stick not the left in advanced look controls. Tried uploading a pic but it won't allow it. My deadzone circle if I increase it is fine on the left but smaller on the right meaning when I want my extra yaw value to kick in, it works on the left, but not the right. Play on Ps4

Xbox One: The deadzone in ALC (Advanced Look Controls) is off centre. In the image of the Squared Circle if you set the Outer Threshold to it's minimum value (all the way left) you see the the Circle inside the Square is slightly outside on the bottom & the right side, the top & the left side are perfectly inline with the square. This is the same for the Deadzone. This needs to be adjusted immediately because I 'feel' it as i turn. The Extra Yaw kicks in much sooner when tilting the RIGHT STICK to the left than when tilting to the right. Tilting the RIGHT STICK to the right I feel more range of motion, especially when adjusting the Response Curve to suit my aim. For now the only way i can smooth this out is by setting the Outer Threshold to the recommended level (one click in from the extreme left).
In my opinion the Outer Threshold should be 'painted' on by the player which will give the ALC better alignment with that individual controller, which shouldn't be too much of an issue for Respawn to implement. The fact that Respawn took the time to create these Advanced Look Controls for controller play in Titan Fall is commendable in terms of skill based gun play and recoil control. The ALC are vital to any fast paced online shooter. Just a little refinement needed.

Also for those on PS4 look into Nacon: Revolution Pro Unlimited controller for PS4 & PC. That thing is a work of art with very similar Advanced Look Control software to tailor your style to the actual controller. It's a thing of beauty. 

Anyway, I hope Respawn get on this soon cos it's killing my game. BIG UP Respawn Entertainment and Apex Legends. Love this game (hate the poor server connectivity)!
