Soft Aim doesn't effect the motion of movement of the players aim, but instead acts as an auto-trigger.

This effectively gives players perfect reactions.

When the player's crosshair is on top of the enemy, the gun will automatically shoot, giving you pinpoint accuracy every single time.

Detection and Anti-Cheat

The reason this is currently causing an issue in Fortnite is due to its ability to slip past the Anti-cheat undetected.

Anti-cheats are typically looking for abnormal movement or aim, as well as reports from players.

It's very hard for this type of Anti-cheat to detect Soft Aim, as it doesn't involve any kind of movement/input changes.

Competitive Play

Quite a few Fortnite Pro's, such as Cloakzy, have spoken about the issue on their Twitch Stream.

It's clear this new cheat is causing a host of issues in competitive play, and especially in the FNCS.

It will be interesting to see how Epic tackle this issue, whether it be through an updated Anti-Cheat or a similar piece of software.

Some Pros have decided to step away from Fortnite for now, because of the issues Soft Aim has brought to Fortnite.
