Huntress needs a crosshair

For beginners. I let some friends playing Huntress and they asked me "why the F is there no crosshair?". They came from shooter games like csgo, cod, apex and others so they are very experienced and played those games on competetive level. But they had some real difficulties on Huntress.

And I can agree on that. Even I, after throwing over 20k hatchets I still have issues to be pinpoint on the center of the screen and it takes some games to warm up.

At least give her a crosshair with an addon. It's not beginner friendly.

    I've stated this to before, the response was pretty much "you'll figure it out" I think that even if a blip of one showed as it reached full power would be better then nothing, considering the accuracy needed especially at range

    The way I see it, if this is something you can solve with a little mark you make yourself, may as well just make it an actual thing in-game. Just have it be something you can toggle on/off in the Options.

    I TRIED that approach, but I tried using a little piece of duct tape since I dont wanna use a marker on my expensive monitors... Eventually I just got the hang of NOT using tape, since lining up a piece of tape JUST right is kinda annoying.

    I say just give her a training wheels addon. might sound stupid to not just add it by default but i believe one of the reasons she's able to be as powerful as she is is by not giving a dedicated indicator to where she will land her hits. Let me explain :

    If we give her a dedicated indicator, lets say a crosshair or an arc which shows where it will land, people will use this to both suplement their own skill, to learn her, and to actively see where they can hit, expecially if its an arc showing exactly where it will land. this isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it artificially lowers the skill cap to a point where you'd effectively be able to see the hitboxes of objects due to it showing where it would land.

    if its a simple crosshair that shows the angle of a fully charged hatchet? i don't mind that in the slightest. but anything more and you'd be actively buffing her in ways that would i feel restrict her from being buffed in other more neccessary ways. ie if you make her easier to play, she will need less buffs in areas that count like her chase potential without hatchets.

    Add a 1% speed boost for every hatchet she's missing up until 5 hatchets. a crosshair would be nice too, but if its an arc or anything more, tie it to a new brown addon. also iridecent head should automatically remove any crosshair.

    TLDR: tie it to an addon, or make it a very limited crosshair. also buff her in ways she needs to be buffed.

    Give an already great killer a buff?

    No thanks.

  • HatCreatureHatCreature Member Posts: 3,298

    Pretty sure they'll say it'll break immersion or break the game which is stupid.

    A crosshair won't make her more powerful or break immersion ESPECIALLY if we could turn it off in the Options menu.

    A crosshair is a totally fine thing to put into the game

    A crosshair adds nothing except making things easier rather than be extremely difficult for NO REASON.

    There is NO GOOD REASON NOT to put one into the game.

    I hate huntress. One of my worst killers. That said...

    Please do not give her a crosshair. It would obliterate any skill with her.

    They should Replace "Pungent Phial" with a Crosshair granting add-on. For the longest time I always felt that this particular add-on was made during Huntresses development as a way for players to see hatchet auras in lockers, because they initially didn't intend to make that part of her base kit when she runs out of hatchets. When her final version came out with it integrated as part of her base kit though, instead of reworking it to do something else, they just lazily left it in despite it being utterly pointless on her... especially for a rare add-on. No Huntress player I know even uses this worthless thing, and they cringe every time they have to spend BP on it in order to get the stuff they actually want.

    I also believe all add-on's that give players an idea of where their killers powers will land should be Common (Brown) add-on's to help new players learn the killer. The biggest issue with Huntresses aim is that the point of the crosshair is actually lower on the y axis than where it would intersect with x in the center of the screen. Players have to tilt their head up a little in order to aim properly, and many new players have a hard time wrapping their head around this. Having a common crosshair add-on to illustrate this would be great for new players, and players who haven't played her in a while and need a quick warm up to refresh their memory.

    Seriously, of all her add-on's, "Pungent Phial" is just the worst and either needs to be changed to something worthy of being a Rare add-on, or replaced entirely.

    wow, the disagreement is real here.

    just give her a " -- -- " in the center of the screen. it doesnt have to be something fancy.

    theres still a variable throwing arc with different projectile speeds to calculate, i guess knowing where the center of the screen is TOO OPRESSIVE for those poor survivors,



    Do they think we want a visible throwing arc? might they be that dumb?

  • LordGlintLordGlint Member Posts: 4,681

    If nurse can get an addon showing exactly where she'll blink to... I doubt a crosshair in the middle of the screen will be restricting anyone

  • MiloMilo Member Posts: 4,976

    Yeah i think its a brown addon (it had a horse picture i think) it shows the radius of your shock

  • AlfredAlfred Member Posts: 272

    Buy gaming monitor turn on crosshair...

    You can also install software which will do the same but it in not clear how will EAC reacts...

    people claiming: crosshair = buff are completely clueless...

  • justarandyjustarandy Member Posts: 1,711

    How is it a buff when the best Huntress players don't need that? Also, many monitor have the ability to display a crosshair, are they all cheating now?

  • White_OwlWhite_Owl Member Posts: 2,225

    I'm ok with this suggestion, but know that there's the possibility to use overlay crosshairs, and if I remember right devs are ok with that (and since they don't interfere with the game, EAC shouldn't flag them).

    When I first started with the Huntress I used Custom Desktop Logo, but there are many apps for that.

  • TheGorgonTheGorgon Member Posts: 655

    Not really, some players like me get confused with where and what I have to aim at to get the perfect hit. More of a QoL change if anything.

  • TragicSolitudeTragicSolitude Member Posts: 2,160

    I play on the PS4. Even if I wanted to, I would get my ass kicked if I placed anything on the TV screen. Even "just practice, you'll get used to it" isn't true, because I'm not always sitting in the same spot. Looking at the screen from a different angle throws everything off, changing where it feels like center should be located.

    I absolutely hate playing Huntress. An option that can be toggled that helps with aiming, or even an add-on that provides help with aiming, would be most appreciated.

  • OmansOmans Member Posts: 417

    I don't see why not, with an addon. I would never use it, but huntress has a bit of a learning curve, so making her more approachable to a new player seems okay.

  • MegaWaffleMegaWaffle Member Posts: 3,472

    The "Horse" chess piece lets you see his shock outline.

  • Aven_FallenAven_Fallen Member Posts: 3,566

    By Default - no. As an Add-On - yes. Should be a brown Add-On, can easily replace Beerus Toxin (we dont need Add-Ons which can negate powerful Perks for just 3k BPs...)

    btw. Nurses Training Add-On should also be much lower in rarity.

  • Tzeentchling9Tzeentchling9 Member Posts: 1,796

    The best Huntresses ARE using a crosshair. Scottjund has openly admitted to it and Umbra definitely does, you can see it in how she plays.

  • snozersnozer Member Posts: 578

    Plenty of cheap monitors have a crosshair you can turn off and on now. many huntress mains use it in streams and it doesn't show lol.

  • LordGlintLordGlint Member Posts: 4,681

    Umbra jokes about it all the time, but Im pretty sure shes just THAT good.

  • Tzeentchling9Tzeentchling9 Member Posts: 1,796

    I'm not saying she isn't good, she definitely has all the timings, tile layouts, and what she can throw over down to a T. However, watching her make minute corrections to thread between three different openings at long range is a bit suspect.

  • LordGlintLordGlint Member Posts: 4,681

    Id say thats probably just the result to thousands of hours of using Huntress. She plays Huntress like 95% of the time, and typically avoids relying on addons that would make hitting shots any easier.

  • MrDardonMrDardon Member Posts: 858

    Just get a foil, figure out the center of the screen via diagonal lines, use a pen to draw a cross hair = Profit

  • Bludge23Bludge23 Member Posts: 160

    I have been playing huntress for a while and it is hard to know where to aim on console. A cross hairs would be appreciated.
