Halo Infinite is really hard to aim on controller, am I the only one?

I'm torn on how to play this game. I've never had a good PC, so with Xbox and Halo Infinite, I can finally play a modern FPS with a mouse and keyboard. It feels great and I don't want to lose that, but it's hard to justify it when controllers have such great aim assist.

After a few days playing on Mouse and keyboard, going back to the controller feels like walking through knee-deep mud, whether or not I will play better that way.

You can hook up mouse/key bot series s|x no problem?
 
Yes of course...

people forget that from their very inception FPS games were developed for and meant to be played with a mouse and keyboard, it has always been the most natural way to play them, and its also why we need all these aids for controllers to be a viable input method for the genre.

"aim assist" is kind of a hack job really, and if you take it away the experience on controller is not going to be very pleasant at all, where with mouse and key you don't need any aid at all.
Nice to see someone with a realistic opinion on aim assist. There's a few in here who complain just for the sake of it.

Sorry, but there is.


Well I admit I was never aware of this. Assuming it is true and legit though, the effect demonstrated here in Halo 1 is far, far less egregious than what is happening in Infinite.

But, I may have been wrong on the suggestion that Halo 1 PC did not have any aim-helping code at all. I haven't had time lately but I need to do a deep dive on all this stuff soon.
