Best MW2 Controller Settings on PlayStation
In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, there are a wide range of controller settings players can change to make aiming easier and each button prompt fit their preferences.
The game offers two different input options: Default and Custom. The Default option is standard for all CoD games and is preferable for newer players.
However, by selecting Custom, players can completely edit every button on their controller to tailor the experience to their liking.
Additionally, MW2 gives players the option to flip L1/L2 and R1/R2.
This setting allows players to flip aiming with L2 and firing with R2 to aiming with L1 and firing with R1.
If that seems preferable, then switch it on. Otherwise, the standard is to have it off.
Lastly, there is the Stick Layout Preset setting. This is purely preferential. However, for newer players or people used to other FPS games, the Default setting may be best. Ultimately, it is up to the player to experiment with the different settings to see what works best for them.
In most first-person shooters, aiming is one of the most important skills you can master. The better you are at aiming, the more likely you are to win a firefight. However, Aiming can be a bit tricky to get the hang of. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to help you find the perfectAiming settings for your style of play.
Horizontal Stick Sensitivity: This setting controls how fast your crosshair moves when you move the joystick horizontally. A higher number will make your crosshair move faster, while a lower number will make it move slower. We recommend finding a setting between 4 and 9 that feels comfortable for you.
Vertical Stick Sensitivity: This setting works the same as Horizontal Stick Sensitivity, but controls how fast your crosshair moves when you move the joystick vertically. As with Horizontal Stick Sensitivity, we recommend finding a setting between 4 and 9 that feels comfortable for you.
Ads Sensitivity Multiplier: This setting affects how fast your aim moves when you’re aiming down sights (ADS). A higher number will make your ADS aim faster, while a lower number will make it slower. We recommend keeping this setting between 0.80 and 1.00 so you’re not too fast or too slow when trying to target opponents.
Sensitivity Multiplier: This setting affects your overall sensitivity in all situations (standing, moving, ADS, etc.). We recommend leaving this setting at 1.00 so your Aiming feels consistent in all situations.
Third Person Sensitivity Multiplier: This setting only affects your Aiming when you’re using a third-person view (i.e., when you’re not looking through your character’s eyes). We recommend leaving this setting at 1.00 so your Aiming feels consistent in all situations.
Ground Vehicles Sensitivity Multiplier: This setting only affects your Aiming when you’re driving a ground vehicle (i.e., a car or tank). We recommend leaving this setting at 1.00 so your Aiming feels consistent in all situations.
Air Vehicles Sensitivity Multiplier: This setting only affects your Aiming when you’re flying an air vehicle (i.e., a plane or helicopter). We recommend leaving this setting at 1.00 so your Aiming feels consistent in all situations.
Tablet Sensitivity Multiplier: This setting only affects your Aiming when you’re using a tablet or other mobile device (i.e., when you’re not using a mouse and keyboard). We recommend leaving this setting at 1 because most tablets don’t have the same level of precision as a mouse and keyboard.
Vertical Aim: This setting determines whether or not vertical Aiming is enabled in the game. If it’s turned off, you won’t be able to Aim up or down; if it’s turned on, you will be able to Aim up and down as normal. We recommend keeping this setting turned on so you have full aiming capabilities in all directions.”
Most first-person shooter games have similar gameplay mechanics.
Players move their characters through the game environment and use a variety of weapons to take down opponents.
One of the key gameplay elements aiming down sights, which allows players to be more accurate when firing their weapons.
Another important gameplay element is sprinting, which allows players to move quickly through the environment.
There are two main types of sprinting: automatic sprinting and manual sprinting. Automatic printing means that the player will sprint whenever they move while standing, while manual sprinting requires the player to press a button to sprint.
Equipment behavior is another key gameplay element. This determines how grenades and other items are used. There are two main types of equipment behavior: toggle and hold.
Toggle means that the player can press a button to use the item, while hold means that the player must hold down the button to use the item.
Weapon mount activation is another key gameplay element.
This determines which button prompts enter you into Weapon Mounting mode. ADS + Melee is standard and will be the most accurate too.
Interact/Reload Behavior is also an important gameplay element; it determines how Reloads work in games.
There are two options for Interact/Reload Behavior: Tap To Reload and prioritize Health Kits over Ammo Drops.
Tap To Reload is recommended for newcomers as it is simpler and more effective than Prioritizes Health Kits over Ammo Drops, which can often lead to missed opportunities to reload effectively.
Movement in games can often feel stiff and unresponsive, however, with the right settings, it can feel smooth and natural. The first setting to change is the Toggle for Sprint/Tactical Sprint Behavior.
Toggling is a lot easier than holding it down as it puts less pressure on your thumbs.
The next thing to do is turn Off Auto Move Forward. You want to have as much control over your movement as possible, and keeping this Off will help with that. Then, set Tactical Sprint Behavior to Double Tap.
Grounded Mantle should be set to Off, as well as Automatic Airborne Mantle and Automatic Ground Mantle. Invert Slide and Dive Behavior should be set to Standard, however, this is completely preferential and you can change it if you prefer inverted controls.
Plunging Underwater should also be set to Movement. This is completely preferential, and it’s easier to see what feels more natural.
Movement requires you to sprint and look down to dive underwater, whereas Plunge Freely lets you just walk into the water.
Lastly, Parachute Auto-Deploy should be set to On. Safer to have this on, as it just takes one less button press in an emergency. With these settings, jumping, mantling, and swimming will feel much more responsive and natural.
There are a few simple changes you can make to improve your “Modern Warfare 2” experience on console. By adjusting your graphical settings and tweaking your aim sensitivity levels, you’ll be able to enjoy better visuals and improved accuracy. So what are you waiting for?
