While playing PUBGM and I try to scope in while shooting/spraying full auto, the scope will sometimes close then open again in a flickering manner, multiple times in a second. Sometimes it will just close altogether even when my right index finger is still resting on the scope button. I have my Scope option set to "Hold" and I don't know what causes the problem. It just happens randomly, mostly when I'm in the middle of a firefight. It should not do this. The scope should only close down if i let go of the scope button, not while I'm still holding it. My playstyle is 4-finger claw.

Left index = Tap to Shoot.

Right index = Hold to Scope


  • Same situation here

  • This sounds like the ghost touch issue that we're currently investigating. If you screen record with touch showing, you should be able to see a flicker touch that cancels your current action. The bigger button you have in PUBG, the more likely it is to happen

  • Yeah the buttons are fairly big, about 0.9 inches in diameter. unfortunately, i wasn't able to capture the bug on screen record with touch pointer enabled, not even once, it just happens when I'm not recording. I don't think my touches are to blame too since I've seen the footage and the pointers show that my index fingers are always hitting mostly the center of the buttons. This is weird considering it's only affecting the scope and not the shoot button since i hold both when firing a weapon while ADSing.

  • Maybe your shooter button is slightly smaller? The ghost touch may only happen once and for a split-second. Hard to spot. You need to slow the video down to 25% speed

  • Nope they're both the same size and everything else is arranged neatly and perfectly, as symmetrically as possible thanks to my OCD. Yes it happens for like a second or so, it's either gonna cancel my ADS entirely or flicker in and out. So far I've tried to troubleshoot it to know what's causing it but it just happens randomly. I can't force the bug to happen.

    I have hardly faced any issues in my current settings. You can give a try. I use full gyro(very high sensi)

    Here is my control layout.

    Also in game scenario keep sensi to low. ROG 3 has too good touch response. Keeping it low should help a little.

    Hope it helps.
