The battle in Modern Warfare 2 begins as soon as you launch the Settings menu. Having the correct adjustments to different settings can make all the difference in gameplay.
Modern Warfare 2 moves rapidly, and players can undoubtedly eliminate one another. It's therefore important to have settings that reflect this and allow you to respond in time.
Modern Warfare 2 has the best possible settings to help you defeat opponents and accomplish goals.
Best Modern Warfare 2 PS4/PS5 Controller Settings
WhosImmortal on Youtube recommends these as the best controller settings in Modern Warfare 2.
|Button Layout Preset||Preference||This is mostly preference, but many players decide to use Tactical because it changes your Melee and Stance/Slide/Dive input. This allows players to slide or dive without moving their fingers away from the trigger.|
|Flip L1/Flip L2 and R1/R2||OFF||The only real reason for flipping would be preferred since Call of Duty on PS3 originally had its L1/L2 and R1/R2 inverted from what it is today on PS4/PS5.|
|Stick Layout Preset||Preference||This is entirely up to preference. Choose what you feel most comfortable with.|
|Controller Vibration||OFF||Vibration might cause you to shake your aim up, which could cost you a battle. It helps keep the aim steady.|
|Trigger Effect||OFF||This is more for immersion because it emulates how it would feel to hold down an actual trigger. In a competitive game mode, though, it can cause you to start shooting more slowly. (Only applies to PS5)|
|Horizontal Stick Sensitivity||8||The sensitivity should allow you to aim at your opponents quickly, but it should not damage your ability to aim. If 8 is too high or too low, experiment with what you feel comfortable with.|
|Vertical Stick Sensitivity||9||Vertical should always be higher than Horizontal Stick Sensitivity since it is much easier to control.|
|ADS Sensitivity Multiplier||.70||Its good to drop down a bit so that it helps you be more accurate when aiming down the sights.|
|Sensitivity Multiplier||Preference||Sensitivity Multiplier will tweak the sensitivity for different cameras, including Third Person POV, Ground Vehicles, Air Vehicles, and Tablets.|
|Vertical Aim Axis||N/A||WhosImmortal recommends not touching these settings too much since doing so can do more harm to your aim than good.|
Tweaking your sensitivity will allow you to improve your aim, but to make the most of it, you'll need to learn about the new MW2 maps and their layouts.
|Aim Down Sight Behavior||HOLD||This is mostly preference, but it can throw you off if you put to Toggle and accidentally toggle it off.|
|Automatic Sprint||Automatic Tactical Sprint||This is perhaps one of the most significant changes. Turning on ATS will allow players to automatically enter a Tactical Sprint from standing. The fewer inputs you need to do an action, the better in combat.|
|Equipment Behavior||HOLD||This will allow you to hold a lethal one until you are ready to throw it without needing a second input.|
|Weapon Mount Activation||ADS + Melee||This is a preference for the most part, but its always nice to aim down the sights and have the prompt to mount there without needing to release the ADS button.|
|Interact/Reload Behavior||Tap to Reload||This will prioritize reloading over every other input.|
|Armor Plate Behavior||Apply to All||This is only for Warzone 2.0 and armor plates you find around Al Mazrah.|
Despite being able to slide in Modern Warfare 2, it does appear to be an option for players who wish to improve their movement.
|Target Aim Assist||ON||It will help reduce recoil and improve the aim.|
|Aim Assist Type||Default||This is the AIm Assist that you are most likely most comfortable with. Anything else can severely throw off your aim.|
|Aim Response Curve Type||Dynamic||This is the curve type that most pro players use, and it is the norm in competitive Call of Duty.|
|ADS Sens. Multiplier (FOCUS)||.90||This only applies when focusing ADS with snipers and can be tweaked to fit your playstyle.|
|ADS Sensitivity Transition Timing||INSTANT||This will give you the most control over your aim and sensitivity.|
|Custom Sensitivity Per Zoom||OFF||Its best to leave these settings as is.|
|Inputs Deadzone||preference||This is completely up to your preference and will be different depending on the dead zones for your controller.|
|Sprint/Tactical Sprint Behavior||Toggle||With Toggle, youll only need to click once to start sprinting. This will allow you to have your hands free for other inputs.|
|Auto Move Forward||OFF||This takes away control from your players movement, which can be costly in a gun battle.|
|Tactical Sprint Behavior||Double Tap||Because of the Automatic Tactical Sprint setting we triggered, this setting wont matter.|
Combine these features with all the new weapons in Modern Warfare 2 and you'll be able to dominate the competition in no time!
