The Finals: Best Controller Settings

Learn about the Controller Settings to enhance your gameplay and adapt to your playstyle.

If you plan on mastering The Finals on your console, having the best controller settings is key. Whether you’re facing ground or air enemies, these settings, customized to your playstyle, are your ticket to success.

Update: This guide has been updated to reflect the changes in the final release of the game.

Key Takeaways
  • I would recommend these controller settings as they are a helpful starting point but can be adjusted to suit individual playstyles.
  • Settings like sensitivity and aim assist can help console players compete against mouse and keyboard players.
  • Higher sensitivity is advised for tracking ground and air enemies in The Finals, especially with cross-play enabled.

Best Controller Settings [Capture By Me]
I have been playing The Finals for the past few days on my console and tried several settings combinations. I recommend you keep tweaking your controller settings to find what suits you best. To change your controller settings, go to Settings and head to the Controller Tab.

If you plan on playing The Finals with a controller, these are the Best Controller Settings for you to use.

Setting Recommended Value
Controller Look Sensitivity Horizontal 260-300
Controller Look Sensitivity Vertical 220-250
Controller Zoom Sensitivity Multiplier 35%-50%
Deadzone 5
Controller Look Response Curve Sinusoidal
Controller Invert Vertical Look Input Off
Controller Horizontal Look Boost 200
Controller Vertical Look Boost 0
Controller Look Boost Ramp Up Time 0.5

Controller Zoom Vertical Look Boost 40
Controller Zoom Look Boost Ramp Up Time 1-1.5
Controller Look Acceleration 0%

Controller Aim Assist On

In The Finals, there is a lot of movement, and you need to fight both ground and air enemies, so it can be helpful to increase your sensitivity a bit more than usual. This can help you keep up with players, especially when playing with cross-play enabled.

My Experience With These Settings

I enjoyed using these settings the most, but for The Finals, like any other First-Person Shooter, I recommend you put some hours into the game and find what works best for you.

Settings like Sensitivity and Controller Preset depend on your preference. However, the given settings can be helpful to use as a baseline and to start your The Finals journey.
