I started playing this game on a PS4, and then moved over to playing it on PC. That was about 4 years ago. I do not even know HOW to play the game with a keyboard, I have played this entire time using a controller.
I KNOW YOUR PAIN!!!
The game itself has no settings to tame acceleration. My video card, has no settings to tame acceleration. There are no mods you can add to the game, that effectively do it.
But, there's light at the end of the tunnel!
What we controller players need to do, is add mods to our controllers. And that is where KontrolFreeks come in.
They offer two sets of products that will help you out HUGELY.
First is these things. https://www.amazon.c...aps,1094&sr=8-3
They are small foam rings that when you put them on your joystick, create resistance. This resistance actually slows how fast your pointer/targeting moves. The more resistance that you put on your stick, the slower your pointer will move.
The different colors, offer different amounts of resistance, so I DEFINITELY recommend getting the combo pack, so that you can experiment around with which ones work best for you personally.
It took me a couple of hours to get used to these, and play around with the different resistances. But once I did, OMG, I CANNOT play WITHOUT them now!
Now, that will offer you the most bang for your buck to fight the problem. But they also offer a second line of products that will also help. They are snap-on controller extensions.
Longer stick will increase your precision of movement. So adding one of these to your right stick, makes it easier for you to put the crosshairs where you want them, now that it's not flying halfway across the screen when you push on your stick.
This is a combo pack with a short and medium extension. Tho if you visit their store, they have a pretty large selection. https://www.amazon.c...B5?ref_=ast_bln
Some players prefer dome tips (convex, domed OUT) while some players prefer concave (domed IN). I'm kinda on the line. I like having a domed Out tip for shooter games, but a domed IN tip for driving type games. That part of it, is all on you, as for what you prefer. So keep the packaging when/if you order these, so that you can send them back through Amazon, if you think you'd prefer a different style.
Usually... I say "I hope this helps!". But in this case, I guarantee that this will help you out!
