    Lightbulb [TUTORIAL] How to use a PS4 controller for Paladins

    Okay, before I get started, I have no idea if it is supported by default. I plugged in my controller, and nothing happened, later I noticed that there was a setting "Enable Gamepad" (or something), and I checked it, still didn't work. If it IS supported and it works for you, you can skip this and go look at other stuff as this will not really help you.

    Let's get started!

    You will need :
    A DualShock 4 controller (duh)
    (If bluetooth is not supported on your PC) A DualShock 4 charging cable.
    DS4Windows

    First install DS4Windows.
    This shouldn't take long, and this is the main part in this.

    DS4Windows should ask you to connect a controller, so do that.

    Next go to the "Controllers" tab in DS4Windows, and make sure that it's connected and on the default profile.

    You're done!
    By default DS4Windows emulates a Xbox controller.

    Now you can play paladins with a PS4 Controller!

    If this doesn't work or I didn't explain it right, just tell me, I can happily explain what you don't understand

    Interesting, but wouldn't playing a PC FPS with a controller put you at a huge disadvantage?

    And in a team game, by extension, put your team at a disadvantage?

    im waiting for the crying to start about how the pc release of this game doesnt offer aim assist for controllers..


    but yes it does, this is why games that are played on a competitive level.. have seperate brackets for pc console players... smite is a great example of this.. why is pc treated as on bracket while ps4/xbox a seperate one? for this very reason.. its also why the majority of games that are pvp based despite multi platform release keep pc and console players separate... and for those who want to aruge its because of console manufacturer restictions... well there have been games that were cross platform.. across playstation/xbox/pc

    TBH it wont be a problem for every long once the console betas start.. all the controler players will most likely move to the console betas, dont get me wrong there are some games where a controller is a much better option... anyone whos ever played a fighting game with keyboard will tell you that... but the fps will excel on the keyboard and mouse..

    I would only want to play with a ps4 controller on a PS4 where everyone else is playing with a PS4 controller so I wont get wooped.

    Why would you want to play with a ps4 controller vs the superior mouse and keyboard?

    I don't get why people do that.

    because they are intimidated by keyboard mouse...or just refuse to adapt to a control scheme there not used to... i was there once ages ago when i played wow i used arrow keys instead of wasd... then started playing tf2 and was forced to learn wasd now i sware by it

    This tutorial was made for people who just want to play casually to have fun, not for competitive, serious play.

    I don't give negative rep.

    If someone can spoof the system they will get aim assist for PC without controller and GG.
