There are two reasons to this problem.

1. Gun mark isn't fully center the mark is slightly to the left of the cursor which doesn't make much sense to me because only up and left should be an offscreen reload in theory.

2. The fact Midway didn't include a gun calibration setting in the test menu isn't a good idea. It would be difficult to find a balance that is unless this game can use the quick offscreen reload setting that would involve remapping button 2.
