As stated above, the game will automatically assign you a viewpoint as you leave cover.

You can make it so the game defaults left or right shoulder when leaving cover, however.

To do this, simply follow the steps below:

  • Pause the game
  • Head into the Gameplay Settings
  • Locate the “Reset Camera Side (Leaving Cover)” option
  • Check either the left or right box to default your over-the-shoulder viewpoint to that side when leaving cover
