Aim assist in multiplayer works in two ways.
1. When your crosshairs pass over an enemy - your look sensitivity is halved when your crosshairs are on target making aiming more accurate.
2. When an enemy runs through your crosshairs - your crosshairs move with the enemy at half the speed they are moving. This doesn't always work well when in a laggy lobby and it can sometimes seem like the assist is making you more OFF target.
The effect overall though makes aiming a lot easier and if you disabled it completely when using a thumbstick controller you would find aiming very difficult, espeically if using a sensitivity over 5.
It is not the same as the "auto aim" which is in the single player modes.

True, it is basically the same as how sticky aim worked in BO.
Although in BO you could turn it off, where in MW3 you cannot.
The worst problem that occurs is when out of sync with host and it actually pushes your aim away from the target, making it follow to one side or the other.

this is by far the worst thing ever. i find it to hinder my game play every single time it occurs. wonder if the people at Beach Head think its funny to watch the videos of this type of thing happening to us. i just want to turn it off

It's been in there since November. You just now noticed it?
Beachhead develops Elite, not MW3, that would be Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer.
Finally, it's not the worst thing ever. I think we can all agree on that with some additional thought.

No I didn't just notice it and as for it being the "worst thing ever", that is my opinion and you have the right yours and I have the right to mine. And if I think its the worst thing in the game then by all means I get to say it.
And I'm sorry but I think that beach head is in charge of elite which is who watches all of the games to determine who, what , when and why. Am I wrong or does Infinity ward take care of all of our stats and things of that nature. Either way I'm sure they're connected in some way and they all sit in a building laughing at people who miss there target because of the "Aim Assist" that is automatically put on the game, even though everyone at activision call center says there isn't "Aim Assist".
And why do people get on a forum and start to think that their opinion is the final word. Its all just suggestions and ideas or rants no one in these forums are better than the next so just chill the rhetoric out
