Hey guys, I just started playing destiny and I really do like the game. Only one problem. My aiming is very off. So I would like to hear from you guys on how to improve on the aiming . (Especially for the little red dot guns). This is my very first time I ever owned a FPS game. So much advice would be greatly appreciated.

Mmm, typically aiming has a lot to do with muscle memory, so usually you just have to get used to the joysticks. Although it sometimes helps to change your sensitivity in the options if you have built up the muscle memory in another game. just stay in low-level areas and work on getting headshots, this may feel a little boring but will help in the long run. I can't help with the red dots since I have a hard time seeing them as it is. Hope your aim improves.

Also there is already a thread for Destiny related talk.

Thank you. I always try to make a head shot by actually aiming at the head but they go right through my shots.

Well, my best advice is to have lots of practice, and keep at it. Basically, what I do, is try to anticipate where the recoil will bring your point of aim too. I use auto rifles the most, which will raise your point of aim up, while shooting. So you'll have to bring it down with your sticks. I always try to aim at the head, and just fight the recoil to bring it back to the head. It takes some getting used too, but after a while you can get the hang of it.

Thanks for the advice. I will definitely keep that in mind.

Take a weapon with high stability. You can start well if you find an AR with a 28 or so round mag and a moderate fire rate and high stability.

You can diversify once you get the hang of it. You may need to adjust your sensitivity as well, maybe slower to help keep track of your targets. Though you don't want to go too slow, as you'll hinder yourself when you need to turn on someone or make a snap decision. I think I run a 4.

And don't jump when you're in a firefight. This game will destroy your accuracy once you're airborne. If you want to test that theory hip fire a fusion rifle standing. Then hip fire while jumping. You'll see the beams go crazy and way off point.

I recommend keeping a good sensitivity on 3 or 4, depending on how you like it. Keep playing the game, sooner or later you'll get an AR with good stability. Good warm up would be playing a mission and aiming for headshots. From there, you can head over to crucible and wreck.
