Best Gyro Settings

These are my recommendations of the best Gyro settings that you can use in Horizon Forbidden West.

  • Motion Aiming Inverted Y-axis: Normal
  • Motion Aiming X-axis mode: Yaw.
    • Yaw: Turns the camera in either direction when you yaw or turn it in that direction.
    • Roll: Turns the camera left or right based on which direction you rolled your controller.
    • Both Yaw and Roll: You can turn the camera by both yawing or rolling the controller.
  • And lastly, Motion Aiming Sensitivity for X-axis, Y-axis, & Concentration mode: Keep it Low. I suggest low because higher sensitivity might disrupt your aim with minor unintentional hand movements.
