There are 4 Aim Assist Settings in Modern Warfare 2 that are unique to each other. You can find out what they do by looking at the description in the game. Here are all the 4 Aim Assist Settings and what they do:


The Default setting is the traditional aim which slows down near your target. This is so that you can precisely aim at them.


This is the setting for experienced players. When you are aiming very close to the target, this is the stronger aim slowdown that will kick in. It requires more accuracy on part of the player.


Focusing is for when you might end up missing your target by a hairsbreadth. In this setting, the game will slow down your aim when it picks up that you are narrowly missing the target. In this way, you will be able to fix your aim.

If you are familiar with the Black Ops games, this is what was used in them. The aim assist remains active for a longer time, and some players prefer this setting.

If you like any particular setting you should stick to it. There is no best assist setting as it is different for everyone. It’s more about how you prefer to play Modern Warfare 2.
