Remember these are just the recommended settings from our experience. Some accurate players prefer to have higher Soldier Aim Sensitivity and also turn off Soldier Aim Assist Zoom Snap for extra precision.

Additionally, the Stick Center Deadzone and Trigger Max Input Threshold settings will make your controller feel more responsive in-game. However, you’ll want to increase these slightly if you suffer from stick drift or your triggers are a bit worn out.
