Valorant: How To Play With a Controller Complete Guide

Asia's Tech News Daily

Valorant is one of the fastest-growing FPS shooters on PC that focuses on using a mouse and keyboard, but can you use a controller to play the game?

© GiveMeSport Here’s how to play Valorant with a controller

First-person shooter titles have long been a massive success on consoles, with the likes of Call of Duty, Battlefield and Halo all being box-office smashes based on playing with a Playstation or Xbox controller.

Here’s everything you need to know about playing Valorant with a controller.

It’s worth noting that yes, you can play Valorant with a controller on your PC, but there are certainly some caveats.

You can’t just plug and play with a controller in the game, instead, you’ll need to use an application that essentially ‘tricks’ the game in receiving input from your controller, be that PS4, PS5, Xbox 360 or Xbox One/Series S or X.

There are a number of different applications online that allow you to do so, including reWASD. This app allows you to re-map PC game controls to a controller of your choice.

reWASD is a good solution to the problem of using a controller for Valorant, as the company behind the remapper explain on their site:

“Lots of games simply don’t have controller support. However, that’s not a problem if you use reWASD as a joystick to keyboard mapper. reWASD can assign the keyboard and mouse clicks to the preferable controller buttons. So when you press a controller button, joystick mapper reproduces the keyboard key press.

“If you want to customize some particular controls instead of changing the whole layout — reWASD can do that too. Make a perfect joystick mapper preset in a few steps: switch the buttons, rearrange the layout the way you need, adjust stick response, invert Y or X axis and change the deadzones!”

What Are The Risks of Using a Controller in Valorant?

There is a big risk using the remapper to trick the game into recognising your controller inputs.

The Riot Games title may believe that you’re using a glitch to exploit the game to create an unfair advantage and ban your account.

With that being said, playing Valorant with a controller is arguably far more difficult than mastering the mouse and keyboard, as the twitchy nature of the game means that you will need precise aiming that you can’t really get from a traditional console controller.
