These are the Controller Options that you should use.

  • Input
    • Controller Auto-Run: On
    • Build Immediately (Builder Pro): On
    • Edit Hold Time: 0.100 Sec
    • Vibration: Off. You could keep it On this is more of a feature that you might enjoy or hate.
  • Sensitivity
    • Build Mode Sensitivity Multiplier: 2.0x
    • Edit Mode Sensitivity Multiplier: 2.0x
    • Use Advanced Options: On
    • The reason we have such high build and edit multiplier settings is because of our lower sensitivity for ads and look.
  • Advanced – Look Sensitivity
    • Look Horizontal Speed: 42%
    • Look Vertical Speed: 44%
    • Turning Horizontal Boost: 0%
    • Turning Vertical Boost: 0%
    • Boost Ramp Time: 0.2 Seconds
    • Instant Boost When Building: On
  • Advanced – Aim Down Sights (ADS) Sensitivity
    • ADS Look Horizontal Speed: 12%
    • ADS Look Vertical Speed: 12%
    • ADS Turning Horizontal Boost: 0%
    • ADS Turning Vertical Boost: 0%
    • ADS Turning Boost Ramp Time: 0.2 Seconds
  • Controller Deadzone
    • Left Stick: 5%
    • Right Stick: 5%
    • The lower the deadzone, the better it is for most players. The main reason for it is higher deadzone values will make your joystick very sensitive. Thus some unintentional movement to the joystick can lead to unwanted movements by the character. Although you should experiment with it to see if you need them to be higher than suggested here.
  • Advanced Sensitivity
    • Lock Input Curve: Linear
    • Aim Assist Strength: 100%. You can lower it to a lower percentage or turn it to 0% based on how well your aim is.

While this was all for your Controller Options. Here are the settings to help you with your movement, combat & building.
