So I just had a battle in Mines with my Type 58. Ping and packet loss galore. Ping goes from 40 to 500+ ms. Tank rotates, burrows into the ground, you name it. Lucky I was playing on laptop where I can utilize and abuse PC autoaim. Dead at the end due to my boneheaded move against KV2, but our JgPz4 carried the day and we won.

Download replay and play on the client to appreciate how well the auto-aim works, especially in the beginning against the Cromwell B. Note, I was completely motionless during that time.

I don't seem to have the auto-aim function in my client. I play on laptop, too, where is it?

I thought you could right-click with the mouse during battle to turn it off and on, but I've only seen auto-aim actually work on a phone. Do you need to use the touch interface to enable it?

I think you target an enemy tank, then right click instead of left click.

Greens 0 / Reds 7 situation normal..

It's at the settings page. The one where you set bind keys to actions (WASD to front, back, left, right).

Default settings is mouse right click for auto aim. For me, I changed it to the spacebar keys, so right click becomes free and unassigned. Leaving right click free and unassigned makes the right click button becomes the equivalent of look around bar at touch interface. See what is around without moving your turret.

That tip was from NA forum by the player formerly known as I_Maverick or Ntwadumela and now known as Frostbite.

Oh, that's really good news. For some reason I was overlooking that key binding even though the text is exactly what I was looking for "Auto-Aim". I'll have to try this out and see if I can get shooting better - currently I switch to Sniper Mode for all of my shots and I spend a lot of time in Sniper Mode. Thanks for the info!

PC auto aim is only center of mass, unlike mobile where you can specify where to put your aim point. PC auto aim is good at close range, especially when your opponent are wriggling around their hull and turret since the opponent put their juicy turret weak spots on your aiming point themselves.
