The build-up to the release of Call of Duty: Vanguard is in full swing, with players getting their first chance to experience the game's multiplayer through the beta. With the second weekend starting on September 16th, players on all platforms will be looking to get every single advantage over their opposition.
For those using a controller, there are a variety of settings that can be tweaked and tuned to suit every single style of play. With so many settings to change, it can be tricky to determine which are the very best to use, so we've spent some time testing a range of settings and have come up with the very best Vanguard controller settings to be using.
COD Vanguard Controller Settings
Here are the very best controller settings to use in Vanguard's multiplayer that will help you react quickly to any opposition and help you to traverse the map as quickly as possible.
- Controller Vibration: Off
- Aim Response Curve Type: Dynamic
- Flip L1/R1 with L2/R2: Recommended for Claw players and those that want increased button press time.
- Invert Vertical Look (On Foot): Off
- Horizontal Stick Sensitivity: 7
- Vertical Stick Sensitivity: 7
- ADS Sensitivity Multiplier: 1
- Button Layout Preset: Tactical
As always, controller settings come down to personal preference but after testing a range of sensitivities, 7 felt the most comfortable, providing a quick turning circle that allows you to react quickly to any opponents that may appear from behind.
Selecting the Tactical preset binds the crouch/slide function to the right thumbstick which enables you to slide-cancel, crouch, and go prone without having to take your thumb off the stick which is ideal when navigating busy areas of the map.
How To Find The Best Vanguard Controller Settings
We recommend jumping straight into the beta to begin experimenting with your controller settings. As it's the beta, it doesn't matter whether your team takes the victory or falls short so it's the perfect time to fine-tune your settings before Vanguard's full release on November 5th. When the game does launch, load into a private match with some bots activated to find the best settings for your style of play.
