Heads up, Warzone controller players!

Streamer “Aydan” Conrad recently disclosed his entire Call of Duty: Warzone controller settings, and after experimenting with them ourselves, we can safely say this should really be the default layout.

Details of Aydan’s Call of Duty: Warzone controller settings

The streamer’s Warzone controller settings start with a Tactical Flipped button layout, meaning that he aims down with L1 and shoots with R1. While this might feel weird for casual players, many pros and streamers use this since it’s a more tactile response than the default triggers.

Here are a few important details of Aydan’s Warzone controller settings:

  • Deadzone: 0.05
  • Horizontal Stick Sensitivity: High 7
  • Vertical Stick Sensitivity: High 7
  • ADS Sensitivity Multiplier (Low Zoom): 0.89
  • ADS Sensitivity Multiplier (High Zoom): 1.00
  • Controller Vibration: Disabled
  • Slide Behavior: Tap
  • Automatic Sprint: Automatic Tactical Sprint

While these are his current Warzone controller settings, the streamer recommends using a higher Deadzone number if you have stick drift. He’s also planning to try out lower sensitivities with a 6-6 setup.

On top of adjusting his in-game settings to a tee, the WSOW champion also uses a third-party application to push his controller play to its limits.

With regular controllers having a 5 millisecond reaction time, the NY Subliner streamer mentioned that you can actually overclock your own controller to have a 1-2 millisecond reaction time.

If you’re interested in overclocking your controller, Aydan linked an in-depth tutorial by Call of Duty analyst Anthony “Nameless” Wheeler.

Along with the overclock, Aydan refines his controller’s sensitivity settings on DS4 Windows. In the app, he sets both analog sticks to a Deadzone setting of 0.00.
