Top Controller Setups for Call of Duty: Warzone

With Season 3 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launching on April 7th, 2020, and with it, new content for Warzone as well. Prepare to win with SCUF’s top controller setups for Call of Duty Warzone, the first free to play Call of Duty battle royale. 

SCUF PRESTIGE
Ping  

SCUF Prestige COD WARZONE Xbox One Controller Setup

Starting with the four Paddle players on Xbox and PC, this controller setup is definitely the most popular, especially for those who use Ping a lot. Even if you’re communicating with friends or players over mic, sometimes you want to ping enemies or items specifically. Unfortunately, by default Ping is inconveniently located on the D-Pad so you have to take your left thumb off the stick, sacrificing your movement. 

With this layout, just place Ping (D-Pad Up) onto the far left Paddle so you can easily engage to communicate to your squad no matter how quickly you have to move.

Alternatively, this layout is for those who prefer to cover all their basics as it just gets the job done covering all your needs without sacrificing your aim. Swap weapons when you're low on ammo during a gunfight, or crouch for cover when you're underfire all while being ready to take out the enemy. 

Map Jump (X on PS4) to the left Paddle and Crouch/Slide (O on PS4) to the right Paddle. Then map Reload/Interact to the inner left Paddle and Weapon Switch (Triangle on PS4) to the inner right Paddle. 

SCUF VANTAGE 2

Ping

SCUF Vantage 2 COD Warzone PS4 Controller Setup

Next up, controller setups for Vantage and Vantage 2 players for PS4 and PC. This layout is for those who prefer having Ping on the Paddles, and want the ability to quickly grab items and switch out weapons during combat with a quick press of the inner index finger. 

Start by mapping Ping (D-Pad Up) to the inner left Paddle, and Inventory (D-Pad Down) to the inner right Paddle. Then place Reload/Interact (Square) to the left SAX button and Weapon Switch (Triangle) to the right SAX button.

Next, this is again a great setup for all different types of players by covering your basic necessities. It covers reloading, weapon switching, and crouching but also still allows you to access your inventory and use ping via the SAX buttons.

Place Inventory (D-Pad Down) on the left SAX button and Ping (D-Pad Up) on the right SAX button to keep your fingers on the triggers to swap out weapons when you're low on ammo and ping enemy locations when you're under siege. 

SCUF IMPACT
Sniper
SCUF IMPACT COD Warzone PS4 Controller Setup

Onto controller setups four paddle players on PS4 and PC. Snipers are wildly popular to use in Warzone right now, and this layout is for those who want to gain that perfect headshot. This allows players to hold their breath with a paddle to keep their aim steady over clicking in the left Thumbstick while maintaining all the essential moves.

Start by going into Settings > Button Layout Preset > Bumper Jumper. This will place Jump on  the Left Bumper (L1 on PS4, LB on Xbox) and Tactical Equipment on (X on PS4). 

Place Steady Aim (L3 on PS4, LS on Xbox) on the farthest left Paddle. Now you can crouch, hold your breath, and aim quickly and comfortably to take out any unsuspecting person that comes in your path.

SCUF INFINITY4PSPRO

Melee
SCUF INFINITY4PSPRO COD WARZONE PS4 CONTROLLER Setup

Last up are our controller setups for two Paddle players on PS4 and PC. This layout is for those who want to pack a punch and for who like to peer around corners by mounting.  For some players, Meleeing and Mounting with a Paddle improves timing and feels more comfortable than pressing in the thumbstick.

Go into  Settings > Controller > Button Layout Preset  > Tactical Layout

This will swap Crouch to the Right Thumbstick click and Melee to Circle. Next set up your paddles by programming Melee (O) to the Left Paddle and the Right Paddle to Jump (X).

Now, when you are in a place to mount, press down ADS to aim and then press in the right paddle to lean and look around corners.

You'll also have the advantage of throwing a punch with better aim control and reaction time
