This Gadget Claims To Make You A Better Gamer…

August 15, 2019

din dong so I think I might have a fun one today this showed up it’s called the hip shot dot and it was sent to me from the folks over at live with YouTube gaming they want to start sending me a couple of cool gaming related peripheral accessories I have no idea what to expect it’s called the hip shot got a red dot sight attachment for first-person shooter games compatible with xbox one ps4 xbox 360 ps3 pc wii u call of duty battlefield titanfall and more it’s got a USB powered LED which sits on your display over top of your normal sites easily attach and detach from the television 72-inch USB power cord alright you actually stick that little suction cup right to the TV in a claim you can name more quickly improve your accuracy enhance reaction time to feel like the real deal with the red dot let’s crack this open i’m a little skeptical who knows let’s find them so this is the device kinda looks like a piece of medical equipment your kind of like keep any way you can power this thing off any USB power doesn’t have to be directly from your console and then this little thing I’m going to show you this just suctions right on right like this right to your eyeball know wow that’s actually on there right now but the majority of the suction cup is see-through and then the center portion that’s what is going to illuminate supposedly increase my accuracy which that’s going to be quite the feat but I mean I need all the help I can get I just picked up battlefield we’re gonna try it out together let’s do it right now see somebody better ok got myself a monitor got the ps4 that I’ve got battlefield one boot it up i’m at the very beginning of the game and played it yet it’s pretty intense so far i’m gonna take this little device and plug it into the ps4 for power you can see this lights up to we’ll see if Jack can pick that up can you pick that up so what you’re supposed to do to set this up go in game they’re firing and zoom in you want this little dot to be right at your crosshairs the second one just exist pretension and then out of the way down here now watch I’m talking about when i zoom in see that how the dot becomes the same even though I’m only in world war one I got the red dot sight all that is a flamethrower holy on fire I’m on fire right now Oh what did last log now the cool thing is i mean lines up with or without l2 oh no not again with the flame door this guy and all right Adam all you gotta shoot his backpack he blows up I can sense a lot of a lot of dying is gonna happen you would his world war one I mean beyond bye-bye who’s tank is that it’s probably oh I get what you’re doing here with the thing you’re playing all the different roles of different guys within the military’s what’s going on so what can i say like I think it actually kind of does the job can you can pick it up there it is called the hip shot dot i think the name is fitting because we’re this really stands to improve your accuracy is when you’re firing without zooming in without having to cross hairs because then it becomes really obvious to you where they would be but you can fire from the hip shot done I don’t know all right listen you’re not sticking this thing on your TV and going straight MLG it’s not happening alright there’s no easy way you gotta put in the time you’ve got to put into practice with or without the hip shot when you get an extra kill I don’t know maybe if you want to step your game up to the highest levels it’s time to grab that controller keyboard and mouse putting those hours with those cheetos all over your hands because you’re special like that you’re going pro your parents are going to be proud of you

    Ive been doing this since 2011 for hardcore modes.. I just use a black sharpie.. It can be wiped from the Tv Very easily.. I had an idea for this red light back then too for my brother, he is going blind and sometimes it's difficult for him to see the Crosshair when doing hip fire.. We just use decided to use orange reflective tape that was extremely bright we cut ittle pieces off at a time and place thrm on the cross hair when he wants to play..

    I did the same thing by using a tiny cut out dot of red sticky note.
    No suction cups. No wires. Served the same purpose and zero wasted dollars.
    One could also use a piece of tape with a red sharpie dot on it. That works as well.

    even some gaming monitors support that aim dot

  • Reply Alan Huang February 18, 2019 at 5:00 am

    It doesn’t work because of such games as rainbow six siege you have to aim down your sights otherwise your bullets will never hit your target

    It's great for games with weak or dim sights like GTA5 or RDR2. However would not recommend it for COD as it does obstruct making head shots and other focused shots.

    If a shooter "doesn't" have a good crosshair, it's probably not all that well thought out of a game. "But" it's also possible that the game starts you out with a very basic scope/crosshair, but then you upgrade it later as you collect stuff as you go. In which case this device would ruin that intended experience. Well, assuming it's "actually" all that helpful. While it gives you a more visible dot, it also puts a wire (at the very least) on the low side of the screen, which could mess with you if you are shooting from high up looking for people lower and at a distance or something. The kicker to this though is the better you get, the less you actually need a sight because you move so fast that you get the hang of where your shots go by reflex. But assuming one "really" needs a sight like this, why not just put poster tack on the screen? Easier to set up and remove. I wonder if this would even work for every screen though. A matte surface for instance could have more difficulties with suction compared to a smooth surface due to air gaps. Finally, what if players play more than one genre of game, which most do? You'd have to take it off for other games unless you for some reason wouldn't mind it on there.

    A lot of monitors actually have a capability to put a crosshair on the screen at all times, and you can get software to do that as well. No wires. But still not really useful since most FPS games have crosshairs for hipfire now anyway
