Best Warzone controller settings

Whether you’re on a console or PC, outside of traditional controller settings, there are four things that any player looking to improve their controller experience needs to disable:

  • Film Grain
  • World Motion Blur
  • Weapon Motion Blur
  • Controller Vibration

While these settings are fine when playing through a single-player campaign, they’re an unnecessary distraction when attempting to up your game in Urzikstan.

So, if you’re chasing tight-knit control over your settings, then read on to find out all you need to know about everything from Deadzone, to Use/Reload Behavior, and ADS Multipliers.
