Issues fixed[edit]

Mouse aiming deadzone[edit]

By default, the game has a mouse "deadzone" effect that ignores small mouse movements. This can make precision aiming with ranged weapons difficult to impossible. An option to disable this feature has been included with one of the patches.
Under "Mouse & Keyboard Settings", set "Mouse Deadzone" to "off"[citation needed]
