Season 6 of Call of Duty: Warzone launched on October 7th, 2021, and with it, plenty of new content. Prepare to win with SCUF’s best controller setting for Warzone, the first free to play Call of Duty battle royale.
Starting with the four Paddle players on Xbox and PC, this is definitely one of the most popular Warzone controller settings, 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 and aim response.
With this Call of Duty controller 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 is one of the best COD Warzone controller settings 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 with depleted ammo during a gunfight, or crouch for cover when you're under fire 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.
Next up, Warzone PS5 controller settings for Reflex players. This layout is for those who prefer having Ping on the Paddles, and is the best controller setting for Warzone players who want the ability to quickly grab items and switch out weapons during combat with a quick tap of the paddle.
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 outer left Paddle and Weapon Switch (Triangle) to the outer right paddle.
Next, this is again a great setup for all different types of players by covering your standard moves. It covers reloading, weapon switching, and crouching.
Paddles keep your fingers on the triggers to swap out a depleted ammo weapon, jumping while aiming, and drop shotting with ease.
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. The best controller setting for Warzone snipers allows players to hold their breath with a paddle to keep the aim for their ammo weapon 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 player that comes in your path.
This is the best controller setting for Warzone players who value flexibility and a quick response time. The layout covers all your needs to quickly traverse terrain, switch weapons, reload, and crouch during combat. You’ll never have to take your thumb off the thumbstick to keep your aim on the enemy while performing other actions.
Map Jump (X on PS4) to the far left Paddle and Crouch/Slide (O on PS4) to far the right Paddle. Then map Reload/Interact to the inner left Paddle Weapon Switch (Triangle on PS4) to the inner right Paddle.
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 those 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
This layout covers the absolute most basic two essentials to climb over obstacles, and duck or slide behind cover during combat while maintaining your aim by keeping your thumb on the thumbstick.
Simply map Jump (X on PS4) to the left Paddle and Crouch/Slide (O on PS4) to the right paddle.
Since SCUF controllers are remappable to suit how you like to play, there are so many different ways to play to help you gain the advantage in Call of Duty Warzone.
