COD Mobile 'increased sensitivity' bug after Season 5 update comes to light

COD Mobile arrived in 2019 as the mobile version of the successful Call of Duty franchise.

The game seeks to offer a gameplay experience as similar as possible to that of console shooters. Like the main installments in the series, COD Mobile is constantly supported with new content.

COD Mobile is available as a free-to-play game, so you can try it out without spending anything. It also offers many weapons, items, operators, perks, maps and game modes.

Like other games in the series, COD Mobile uses a ‘seasonal update’ system. This means that there is a big update with a lot of new content every so often.

‘Season 5’ recently arrived as the most recent big update of the game. But, it seems that the COD Mobile Season 5 update also brought an ‘increased sensitivity’ bug that negatively impacts gameplay.

COD Mobile Season 5 update brought a ‘high sensitivity’ bug

According to multiple reports, the most recent COD Mobile big update notably increased the sensitivity of the game’s controls (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10).

This means that movements are now noticeably faster and occupy a larger range. The issue causes players to be unable to aim accurately or move properly, due to the aim sensitivity (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

pretty sure everyone already knows this but please fix the sensitivity bug because it’s so annoying I used to get 7-12 kills average but now I keep getting about 4 kills and die to players because my character won’t go to where I want it to go.

The COD Mobile sensitivity bug also affects actions such as jump slides. Modifying the controls settings to try to mitigate the problem does not work.

BR Sensitivity Bug

Did the sensitivity in BR change after the update in garena or is it a bug? It seems to be overly sensitive especially when doing jump slides even after adjusting the sensitivity in the settings

COD Mobile Standard and Garena versions reportedly affected

COD Mobile has two versions: standard and Garena. Both versions are practically the same, and the only difference is that Garena distributes the game in Southeast Asia.

That said, players of both standard version and Garena versions are experiencing the problem.

A Redditor suggests that the cause of the glitch is related to a change in the resolution of the game after the Season 5 update.

It’s because they did something about the HUD and with the resolution. I noticed it too, as soon as the update dropped.
