Optimizing your controller settings in Warzone is a great way to gain a huge advantage over your enemies. So, here’s every setting to boost your chances of winning by having the best controller aim assist, sensitivity, and movement in Warzone Season 6.
Call of Duty’s Warzone Season 6 came with a ton of new content for the game, much to the excitement of its loyal fanbase. The addition of new weapons like the TR-76 Geist AR and ISO 9mm SMG, as well as the introduction of licensed Operators such as the Skeletor and Spawn sparked a ton of interest in the Battle Royale game, holding its o even though it came just a short while before the release of Modern Warfare 3.
If you want to dominate your matches, however, then it’s essential that you have the best controller settings possible to master aim and movement.
So, here are the best controller settings for Warzone Season 6, helping you fine-tune your aim assist, sensitivity, and movement to dominate Al Mazrah, Ashika Island, Vondel, and Fort Resurgence.
Best Warzone 2 controller settings in Season 6
Using the best controller settings can give you a major advantage.
- Button Layout Preset: Tactical
- Flip L1/R1 with L2/R2: If you play with claw grip or want faster button press time, you should turn this On
- Stick Layout Preset: Default
- Controller Vibration: Off
- Trigger Effect (PS5): Off
- Horizontal Stick Sensitivity: 6
- Vertical Stick Sensitivity: 6
- ADS Sensitivity Multiplier: 0.9
- Sensitivity Multiplier:
- Third Person: 1.00
- Ground Vehicles: 1.00
- Air Vehicles: 1.00
- Tablet: 1.00
- Verticle Aim Axis:
- On Foot: Standard
- Third Person: Standard
- Ground Vehicles: Standard
- Air Vehicles: Standard
The Warzone Sensitivity you choose comes down to preference, but we find 6 to be an excellent place to start. As you play, you can fine-tune the setting to find what feels most comfortable for you.
Further, setting your ADS Sensitivity Multiplier just below your Sensitivity will allow you to be more accurate from range when taking long-range fights across Al Mazrah. The higher your base sensitivity, the lower you may want your ADS multiplier.
We also highly recommend the Tactical Button Layout Preset, as this allows you to Slide/Dive or even crouch while keeping your thumb on the right stick to aim, ready for the opponent.
- Aim Down Sight Behavior: Hold
- Automatic Sprint: Automatic Tactical Sprint
- Equipment Behavior: Hold
- Weapon Mount Activation: ADS + Melee
- Interact/Reload Behavior: Prioritize Interact
- Armor Plate Behavior: Apply All
- Target Aim Assist: On
- Aim Assist Type: Black Ops
- Aim Response Curve Type: Dynamic
- ADS Sens. Multiplier: 1.00
- ADS Sensitivity Transition Timing: Instant
- Custom Sensitivity Per Zoom: Increase if you feel sensitivity with higher optical zoom is too slow
- Inputs Deadzone:
- Left Stick Min: 0.00 (If stick drift occurs, increase until gone)
- Right Stick Min: 0.00 (If stick drift occurs, increase until gone)
- Left Stick Max: 0.99
- Right Stick: 0.99
- L2/R2 Button Deadzones: 0.00
We find that having your Deadzones as low as possible makes your reaction and fine-aim much more precise, allowing you to react faster and be more accurate.
- Sprint/Tactical Sprint Behavior: Toggle
- Auto Move Forward: Off (Unless the Left Stick is broken)
- Tactical Sprint Behavior: Single Tap Sprint
- Grounded Mantle: Off
- Automatic Airborne Mantle: Partial
- Automatic Ground Mantle: Off
- Invert Slide and Dive Behavior: Standard
- Plunging Underwater: Movement
- Parachute Auto-Deploy: Off
- Sprinting Door Bash: On
Slide Canceling is almost non-existent in Warzone, so you may want to invert the Slide and Dive Behaviour. Diving is highly effective in escaping tough situations and Lethal Equipment thrown by the enemy.
We’ve also set Grounded Mantle to Off, as you don’t want to be mantling when you do not intend to do so, and turned Parachute Auto-Deploy Off to allow you to get closer to the ground.
- ADS Stick Swap: Off
- ADS Interruption Behavior: Interrupt
- Weapon Mount Movement Exit: On
- Weapon Mount Exit Delay: Short
- Depleted Ammo Weapon Switch: On
- Quick C4 Detonation: On
- Vehicle Camera Recenter: Short Delay
- Camera Initial Position: Free Look
- Scoreboard Behavior: Toggle
- Ping Wheel Delay: Moderate
- Double Tap Danger Ping Delay: Moderate
Best aim assist type for Warzone
Default or Black Ops are the best aim assist types in Warzone.
You’ll want to make sure you have aim assist turned on in Warzone but you can take full advantage of it by choosing the best aim assist type. Here’s a breakdown of what each Warzone aim assist type means:
- Default: Traditional aim slowdown near target used in Modern Warfare games.
- Precision: Strong aim slowdown that only kicks in when aiming closer to the target. Best for accurate players.
- Focusing: Strong aim slowdown that also kicks in when narrowly missing the target. Best for players new to analog aiming.
- Black Ops: Traditional aim slowdown near target used in Black Ops games.
No matter your skill level, Black Ops and Default can equally be considered Warzone’s best aim assist type, as the two are very similar, so it’s preference-based.
Focusing will be best for players who are new to shooters, but you should move away from it as soon as you become more comfortable and the aim assist feels too strong.
Best Warzone Aim Response Curve controller setting
Warzone players can take advantage of three types of Aim Response Curve that change how the aim rate responds to their thumbstick movements. Here’s a breakdown of the three types you’ll find in Warzone:
- Standard: Simple power curve map from aim stick to aim rate.
- Linear: Aim stick maps directly to aim rate.
- Dynamic: Reverse S-curve mapping for fine aim rate control.
Standard will feel the most natural for many Call of Duty players, but we recommend switching over to Dynamic. This setting perfectly complements Warzone’s aim assist and allows for much finer control. It’s always worth trying Linear, but we wouldn’t recommend it over Dynamic or Standard.
Best FOV setting for Warzone controller players
Warzone also features the FOV slider for console players, allowing them to increase how much of the world they can see around them. But just because it goes all the way to 120 doesn’t mean it’s the best option.
If playing Warzone on a controller, we recommend anywhere in the range of 100-115 FOV. With how large Al Mazrah is, far-off targets will appear particularly small if the FOV is cranked all the way to 120, so it will be hard to stay accurate when only using your thumbs.
How to find the best controller settings in Warzone
Shoot House is the perfect place to warm up and find the best settings.
While the Warzone controller settings listed above are a great place to start, the same settings don’t apply to everyone, so you can find the best controller settings by simply playing the game.
However, if you own Modern Warfare 2, then you can hop into a small map such as Shoot House or Shipment and fight low-level bots until you’re comfortable.
Here’s what to do:
- Launch Modern Warfare 2
- Click Private Match and then Create New Private Match
- Select Free-For-All
- Under Game Set Up:
- Map: Shoot House
- Time Limit: Unlimited
- Score Limit: Unlimited
- Radar Always On: Directional
- Spawn Ammo Mags: Max
- Bots: Max
- Bot Level: Recruit
