December 1, 2022: Ahead of Warzone 2 Season One Reloaded, these are the very best controller settings to give you the edge in the battle royale.

Having the best Warzone 2 controller settings can provide a wealth of advantages when dropping into the battle royale. With millions dropping into the action, having controller settings that suit your style of play is just as powerful as using the strongest weapons.


Armed with a brand-new engine, a new map, and a new weapon arsenal to master, the next chapter in Call of Duty's battle royale is shaping up to offer a new yet familiar experience for those wanting to take a trip on the victory helicopter. Just like in the first Warzone, controller settings will play an integral role when it comes to achieving success.

What are the best Warzone 2 controller settings?

After spending some time fine-tuning our controller settings, we've settled on this baseline as a great place to start. Make these adjustments to your game then continue tweaking them until you find a combination that suits your playstyle perfectly:

  • Deadzone: 0.05
  • Horizontal Sensitivity: 7
  • Vertical Sensitivity: 7
  • ADS Sensitivity Multiplier (Low): 0.80
  • ADS Sensitivity Multiplier (High): 0.80
  • Aim Response Curve Type: Dynamic
  • Aim Assist: Standard
  • Use/Reload Behavior: Contextual Tap
  • Auto Move Forward: Disabled
  • Slide Behaviour: Tap
  • Automatic Tactical Sprint: Disabled
  • Vehicle Camera Recentre: Enabled
  • Parachute Auto-Deploy: Auto-Deploy

Horizontal and vertical sensitivities come down to personal preference. If you want to spin on an enemy shooting you in the back, a high sensitivity will suit your style perfectly. Deadzone is another area you can adjust. Depending on the age of your controller and how much stick drift there is, increase the value of the Deadzone until your aim stops moving.

Another important setting that you shouldn't change is slide behaviour. By having it set to Tap, slide cancelling is much easier to perform although its method has changed with the arrival of a brand-new engine.

Is controller better than keyboard?

Ultimately, choosing between a keyboard and a controller is all down to personal preference. Controller players have the benefit of aim assist to maintain accuracy when shooting at a target but using a keyboard and mouse provides additional precision impossible to achieve with a controller plugged in.

Whichever you prefer, both inputs are difficult to master so pick the one you feel most comfortable with to score plenty of kills and lots of wins in Warzone 2.
