Besides, I used to do that a lot. It's better than not **bleep** aiming the thing. That's way past borderline retarded.
I don't use it because I don'tt like to press my R3 down so much, and the help it gives isn't very great at all (I would do it if I did "srs cstms", but I don't), but anyway, it does seem to "reduce" recoil in a slight way. It doesn't really, but it does...
(I'm making no sense, deal with it).
If people do it a lot in mid-to-short range, they're just tense. Default controls are R3 zoom and L3 sprint. People tend to press down on the right stick in direct gunfights because your thumb isn't relaxed from all the "**bleep** **bleep** NOOOO" thoughts.
You know, like how everyone has to aim down the sight in CoD.
