They weren't the only streamer to notice something wasn't right. UK-based pro player WarsZ also claims aim assist is "feeling weird" following the Season 3 update that introduced the Nikita AVT assault rifle and M1916 marksman rifle into the game.

It's unclear if Raven Software managed to fix the problem but with many players claiming changes to aim assist have appeared in Season 3, there's a high chance further investigation into Warzone aim assist is required.
