Call of Duty: Warzone offers players a plethora of controller settings to fine-tune, such as Aim Assist and movement. We’ve put together a guide to help you find the best settings to use in Season 2.

Warzone’s Verdansk will throw players into a variety of different gunfights across almost any range, so you’ll need the best controller settings to use in any situation.

Whether you play with a controller on PC or consoles, here are the best controller settings to improve your accuracy and movement in Warzone Season 2.

Best Warzone controller settings

General

  • BR Button Layout: Tactical
  • Stick Layout Preset: Default
  • Invert Vertical Look: Disabled
  • Deadzone: 0 (then increase as required)
  • Horizontal Stick Sensitivity: 6
  • Vertical Stick Sensitivity: 6
  • ADS Sensitivity Multiplier (Low Zoom): 0.90
  • ADS Sensitivity Multiplier (High Zoom): 1.0
  • Aim Response Curve Type: Standard/Dynamic
  • Controller Vibration: Disabled

For your button layout, Tactical is the best choice. When playing Warzone, you’ll constantly be crouching, slide canceling, and going prone. Tactical maps your crouch/slide button to the thumbstick, so you don’t need to move your thumb and can be as quick as possible.

You also want Deadzone to be as low as possible for maximum response time while aiming. Start with your Deadzone set to 0 and keep increasing it until you no longer have any stick drift.

Weapons

  • Aim Assist: Standard
  • Scale Aim Assist with FOV: Enabled
  • Weapon Mount Activation: ADS + Melee
  • Weapon Mount Movement Exit: Enabled
  • Aim Down Sight Behavior: Hold
  • Equipment Behavior: Hold
  • Use/Reload Behavior: Contextual Tap
  • Depleted Ammo Weapon Switch: Enabled
  • Armor Plate Behavior: Apply All

Contextual Tap is a godsend. Your game will prioritize whether you reload or interact based on what your situation. You’ll be able to instantly open crates and reload, making it a vital setting to enable.

Movement

  • Slide Behavior: Tap
  • Auto Move Forward: Disabled
  • Automatic Sprint: Auto Tactical Sprint
  • Vehicle Camera Recenter: Enabled
  • Parachute Auto-Deploy: Disabled

When using Parachute Auto-Deploy, you want to get comfortable with having it Disabled. You’ll be able to pull your chute lower to the ground, meaning you can reach the ground as fast as possible. It can be daunting knowing there’s no safeguard, but pulling your chute close to the ground is extremely worthwhile.

Best Warzone Aim Response Curve

Warzone has separate Aim Response Curves so you can fine-tune your aim to something you’re comfortable with. Their titles can be confusing, so we’ll break down exactly what they mean, and what’s best for you.

  • Standard: Standard curve from aim stick to aim rate. When you initially aim, there will be a slight delay in speed when the stick is pressed all the way in a specific direction.
  • Linear: Removes initial speed delay when the stick is pressed all the way in a direction. More for aggressive, fast movements at the cost of precision.
  • Dynamic: Hybrid system between linear and standard. Your aim will speed up slightly when initially moving the stick.

The majority of players use Standard. Whether you’re new to Call of Duty or a returning player, this will feel the most natural to you.

If you’re confident in your aim and can transition between targets quickly, we’d recommend using Dynamic. Many of the top players use this response curve because of the fine aim rate control it provides.

Best Warzone Aim Assist Type

Warzone offers four Aim Assist types so you can find what comes most naturally to you. We would never recommend turning Aim Assist off, but here’s a breakdown of the options available to controller players.

  • Disabled: You will have no Aim Assist.
  • Standard: Traditional aim slowdown near the target. A wider area where your aim will slow around an opponent. Best for regular Call of Duty players who want some extra time to lock on the target.
  • Precision: Strong aim assist slowdown that only kicks in when close to an enemy player. Only use this option if you’re a skilled and accurate player. The slowdown area is minimal and casual players will not like this.
  • Focusing: Strong aim slowdown that kicks in when narrowly missing targets. If you’re new to Call of Duty, this is your best bet to improving on a controller.

The majority of players should use Standard Aim assist. It provides the perfect aim slowdown near targets while still allowing for precise adjustments if you need to make them.

If you’re new to FPS games and aren’t used to aiming with a controller yet, you should use Focusing until you feel the Aim Assist is stronger than you need, then use Standard.

Best Aim Assist for Sniping in Warzone

Some of the Warzone community believe that to be an accurate sniper you need to play on mouse and keyboard. This isn’t true, as with the right settings, you can be downing players from miles away and quickscoping with precision up-close.

For your Aim Response Curve, you should use Dynamic. You’ll be able to have finer control over how fast your crosshair is moving, allowing for easier flick shots and tracking far-off players.

For your Aim Assist Type, it’s the same situation as any other weapon. If you’re a confident player and need to make micro-adjustments to hit sniper headshots, you should use Precision. And if you’re comfortable with your aim and don’t have an issue sniping with Aim Assist, Standard will be the perfect choice.

Does FOV affect Aim Assist?

Warzone PC players have the option to adjust the game’s field of view. Console players don’t have this option yet, but it’s something we’d love to see during Warzone Year 2.

Warzone FOV slider

Increasing your FOV allows you to see much more of what’s in front of you. Console’s FOV is set to around 80 by default, while PC players can crank that value all the way up to 120. This gives PC players a major advantage in being able to see more such as players off to the side of their screen.

Using such as high FOV will stretch and shrink everything in front of you, which can throw off your Aim Assist.

Activision has added a setting to combat this, which is well worth using if you play Warzone with a high FOV on a controller. You should have Scale Aim Assist with FOV set to Enabled, as this will keep your Aim Assist consistent, no matter your field of view.

How to find best Warzone controller settings

Although we’ve provided the optimal controller settings you should try, there’s no setting that works perfectly for everyone. It’s tempting to find your favorite pro player or content creator and copy their settings, but they might not be the best for you.

Shoothouse map Modern Warfare

What we’d recommend is jumping into a Custom Game of Modern Warfare and test out some different controller settings.

To maximize your time while testing out the settings, here’s what we’d recommend:

  • Map: Shoothouse
  • Mode: Free-for-All
  • Rules:
    • Time limit: Unlimited
    • Score limit: Unlimited
  • Bots and players:
    • Number of bots: 6
    • Bot difficulty: Recruit

With these custom game settings, you’ll be able to practice shooting for as long as you like. Shoothouse is small enough that you’ll be able to constantly fight, and the Recruit level bots will hardly shoot back at you.

Practice shooting bots at both long and close range with a variety of different settings and weapons, and keep on the setting you feel most accurate and comfortable with. Even if you’re a Call of Duty veteran, there’s always room to improve, so it’s worth trying out some different combinations.

While you’re in this private mode, you should also try getting your Minimum Input Thresholds as low as they’ll go. Start at 0, and move it up one until you no longer receive stick drift.

If you don’t own Modern Warfare, you should either play Plunder or the ‘Battle Royale Practice’ mode until you find a setup you like.


Try out these controller settings in Warzone Season 2, and you’ll be shooting deadly accurate in no time.

A picture of the email was shared on Twitter by user @LeonardoLeal.

Only the subject line of the email reveals the details: “Warzone DLSS Launching 4/22.” No where else in the email is Warzone’s support of DLSS mentioned, nor is it on NVIDIA’s website.

DLSS, or NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling), is a new feature that NVIDIA launched alongside their recent graphic cards to up the performance of games through AI rendering technology.

The NVIDIA site describes it as a “is groundbreaking AI rendering technology that increases graphics performance using dedicated Tensor Core AI processors on GeForce RTX™ GPUs.

Raven Software teased first information on the Season 3 changes in a Twitter thread this week, stating that Warzone will see changes including weapon updates, Roze skin changes, and more to be announced.

As of now, neither NVIDIA or Activision have confirmed DLSS support is set for April 22 beyond this one email. We have reached out for a comment.

Roze Skin - COD: Warzone

Raven Software has dropped a preview of some changes coming to Call of Duty: Warzone with the Season 3 update.

The studio responded to a big Twitter thread by YouTuber CourageJD. Courage dropped a list of major changes he wants to see to bring Warzone back to a better place, especially with a lot of the fan complaints.

Raven Software replied to CourageJD’s thread with a preview of some of the changes the studio is making to Call of Duty: Warzone soon, including many coming with Season 3 update on April 22.

Warzone Season 3 Updates

  • An adjustment to Roze
  • A significant balance pass to weapons such as the Tac Rifle Charlie, M16, FFAR 1, and Sykov
  • Fix for MW weapon perks + sniper glint
  • Change to how you acquire the RC-XD

Many of the changes listed above are some of the big complaints players have had over the last few months in Warzone. Roze skin having almost an invisibility look in the dark has been big for players, and Raven has finally acknowledged that.

The latest weapon addition for Warzone, the Sykov Pistol from the Modern Warfare universe, was added on April 15 and instantly became overpowered. Raven now confirms a nerf is coming for it.

The studio also told Courage that they want to “reassure” fans that all feedback is being read around Warzone.

More Surprises To Come

Raven has promised in another tweet that there are more “surprises” in store for Season 3 that will be announced with the update.

Other changes expected for Season 3 is a revamp of Verdansk map, which will see the map be transported and rebuilt for the 1980s Black Ops Cold War era.

Season 3 of Call of Duty: Warzone is set to being on April 22, with an initial event teased for April 21 starting at 12PM PT. Exact launch times for the new content will be announced soon.
