I’m a fan of first person shooters that’s why I set my setup for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II in favor of precise aiming, custom loadouts, and team communications:
Interchangeable thumbstick caps and thumbstick sensitivity: I replace the Right Stick Cap with the High Domed Stick Cap and match it with the preset Precise curve for stick sensitivity, resulting in smoother, more accurate aiming.
Limit switches L2/R2: typically, I set the limit adjusters of both the L2 and R2 keys to the Short or Medium setting for a quicker reaction when facing enemies.
Back Keys and Key Mapping: depending on my playstyle, I’ve found it helpful to map the back keys to actions like jumping or gear swapping, so I can keep my thumbs on the thumbsticks during moments of heightened tension.
FN key: when communicating with my team, I often use the Fn keys to adjust the audio balance between game and chat, so I can alternate between internal communications and the need to listen for the opposing team’s movements.
When I play action titles like God of War RagnarökI adjust my custom profile to make sure I have the main moves at my fingertips:
Adjustable Thumbstick Sensitivity: the default Rapid curve is my preferred setting for left and right stick sensitivity. In this way I favor camera adjustments, aiming and rapid movements. Sometimes, I switch to a default Dynamic curve for sequences in the game where I need to aim carefully while rotating quickly.
Back Keys and Key Mapping: I swap out the half-dome rear keys based on how I feel best gripping the controller. This way I can dodge a blow or quickly recall my ax while still moving around the map keeping an eye out for enemies.
While loading FIFA 23I focus on configuring skill moves and quick maneuvers:
Adjustable sensitivity of the thumbsticks: I set my custom profile to use the preset Digital curve for the right stick, making it easier to use skill moves.
Dead zones of triggers and L2/R2 limit switches: I adjust the dead zones of the triggers as well as setting the limit adjusters to Short. The combination of these changes makes activating the L2 and R2 keys to sprint or parry even faster.
Back Keys and Key Mapping: I’ve assigned two back buttons to shooting and passing, so I can also perform a skill move while moving around the field.
