For example, if you point the gun to the side, it will move that way independently of your head movements. and is shaped so you can hold it like an assault rifle pulled into the shoulder or fire from the hip. The controller uses a similar system to the Move controllers for PS VR.  Meanwhile, the Farpoint itself is described as a free movement and a virtual reality shooting game that is only exclusive to the PS VR. The Aim Controller is effectively a replacement for the Sharpshooter. However, take note that Farpoint won't support the Sharpshooter at all. You should have an Aim or a standard PS4 gamepad to play the game once it eventually comes out in the market.
