Eye Tracking in FPS Games, Why is it Good to Use?
FPS games are undoubtedly among the most difficult PC games out there due to the amount of information you need to perceive, evaluate, and then act upon. So when it comes to visuals: Better vision makes better gameplay! It goes without saying how visual attention makes all the difference between zero to hero in any FPS game. Improve your performance altogether by identifying and analyzing your in-game visual attention.
To improve your odds of playing optimally any FPS game you should be tracking so many things! From your health and resources to (depending on the game) enemy and allies locations to timers for objectives… etc
While top players can absorb this information and instantly make the best decisions that they can; new players can struggle to keep up and will naturally have more blind spots in their decision-making. And that’s where visual attention is key.
The Five Pillars of Eye Tracking
Metrics to Measure your Progress with 3D Aim Trainer
3D Aim Trainer platform measures a specific set of relevant data to players training routine and performance enhancement. Three of the metrics are readily available, while two are under development and will be launched soon!
Eye Reaction Time: Measures the time it takes between the target changing direction and your eyes’ reaction. This metric comes in handy when training your tracking skills.
Eye Speed (Coming Soon): Measures the average speed of the eye movement going from one target to another. This metric is helpful when training in multi-target modes.
Eye Accuracy: Gives better insight into your focus. Keeping focus at all times without deviating your gaze from your opponent makes the difference between victory or defeat.
HUD Awareness: This shows your ability to process the information on the screen. Experienced players barely require visual input to understand what is going on. They often rely on “game sense” to know exactly where their opponents are, how many clips they have left in their magazine, and how close they are to a power-up.
Heatmap (Coming Soon): The heatmap represents all the fixations on the screen and provides a post-game summary.
To begin receiving analysis, start training for a few skill routines. Afterward, you’ll receive new eye tracking metrics on your 3D Aim Trainer postgame screen.
Once you play at least five routines in the same training mode, you’ll be able to see substantial data to analyze and improve your aim.
