I decided to pull out my Razer Turret so that I could use keyboard + mouse instead of the controller. As I predicted, the difference is night and day, since the autoaim for Outriders is pretty minimal (or non-existent, I can’t decide which). I immediately went back to my highest World Tier, instead of WT6, where I have been hanging out. Being able to immediately and accurately put rounds on heads and swivel quickly to shift fire (especially those maps where you’re in the middle with no cover against a zillion perforos) made a tremendous difference.
edit: I also discovered Edge for Xbox has no mouse support. Really, Microsoft?
