Best Controller Settings in Path of Exile

To have a smoother gameplay experience in Path of Exile, you will need to choose the best key binds as well. Since the ARPG is best played with a Keyboard and Mouse, the default controller setup on the Steam Deck may not be up to your liking. Once you’re in-game, you will notice that the skill key binds from your PC controls are automatically mapped onto the Steam Deck’s controller buttons. Unfortunately, you cannot change the Path of Exile keybinds on the Steam Deck. However, you can change the key bind slots on PC in order to see the effects on your Steam Deck. There is no support provided by Grinding Gear Games right now to remap the keybinds. Check out the recommended keybinds for Path of Exile on Steam Deck.
