Battlefield 2042 has now entered Early Access, with players having the option of playing a week early. But they may find themselves overwhelmed with all the new content, such as the Specialists, new weapons, Portal, and massive maps.

These settings are extremely important for perfecting your accuracy, and although a lot of it is up to preference, you will find these Battlefield 2042 controller settings will be a great place to start.

But before you start tuning your controls, you need to make sure that you have the best Battlefield 2042 PC settings applied, as these will reduce annoying effects such as screen shake.

Controller Schemes

  • Soldier Controls: Default
  • Soldier Buttons: Alternate
  • Ground Vehicle Driver Controls: Default
  • Ground Vehicle Driver Buttons: Alternate
  • Transport Vehicle Driver Controls: Default
  • Transport Vehicle Driver Buttons: Alternate
  • Air Pilot Controls: Default
  • Air Pilot Buttons: Alternate
  • Gunner Controls: Default
  • Gunner Buttons: Alternate

You may find it much easier to Crouch with the R3/RS, so you can still aim and stay mobile while transitioning to Crouch and Prone, and in this case, you’d run Alternate. If you’re comfortable with B/O to Crouch, you can leave it as Default.

On Foot

  • Solider Aim Sensitivity: 30 (your personal preference)
  • Invert Vertical Look for Soldier: Off
  • Field of View: 80

Controller Left Stick

  • Center Deadzone: 5
  • Axial Deadzone: 0
  • Max Input Threshold: 100

Controller Right Stick

  • Center Deadzone: 5
  • Axial Deadzone: 0
  • Max Input Threshold: 100

Controller Triggers

  • LT Deadzone: 0
  • LT Max Input Threshold: 100
  • RT Deadzone: 0
  • TR Max Input Threshold: 100

We found great success with decreasing the Zoom Aim Sensitivity while having a lower deadzone.

However, if your controller suffers from stick drift, you can keep the deadzone on default and increase the zoom aim sensitivity.
