Enhanced Targeting

Enhanced Targeting is a mod for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The mod alters vanilla soft-targeting algorithm. It works with both KB/M and controller.

About[edit | edit source]

Witcher 3's automatic targeting fails to impress, especially in combination with the "softlock" mechanism — targets can change wildly for seemingly no particular reason, during a dodge, for example, which can lead to violent (and frustrating!) deaths from being locked in an animation in a completely unintended direction. This mod replaces Witcher 3's automatic targeting with one that is much more consistent, particularly for mouse and keyboard controls, though a controller preset is available in the menu. An options menu is also provided with which to tweak exactly how targeting works — find what works for you and your playstyle!

The new algorithm (with the default values) tries to pick targets that are, in order of importance:

  • close to the player;
  • near the angle of camera;
  • near to player movement;
  • near player's facing.

It also tends to "snap" to targets, particularly if the player is attacking them, drastically minimizing target jitter.
