But how exactly do you aim and shoot in Alan Wake Remastered – we have that covered for you right here.
How do you Aim in Alan Wake Remastered?
Unfortunately, there’s no traditional aim down sight in Alan Wake Remastered, so you have to rely on yourself being a bit of a crack shot.
However, there is one thing you can do to assist your aiming. By holding down L2/LT on your controller, you’ll be able to guide and aim your flashlight at the Taken.
Once you have your flashlight’s beam fixed on one of the enemies, you’ll effectively be locked onto them, this means when you shoot, you’ll have a way better chance of hitting them. Just be careful, when your flashlight runs out of batteries, aiming becomes a bit more difficult so be sure to stay stocked up.
