Hey @rayman

Please fix this issue,. Another month and no fix.

Here’s another video outlining the problem, crosshair is off center

This is not a bug. New World is not like a regular FPS game where the projectile goes exactly on the center of the crosshair. In New World, the projectile actually comes off the weapon and goes to the target. As the weapon is to the left of the character you see the behavior you showed on video. You can see this behavior clearly when shooting targets that are very close to you too, it’s just different from any FPS game, so not a bug.

It’s shit design that needs to be fixed.
