Call of Duty: Warzone is available to play on multiple platforms. As such, the game has been optimized for a variety of different inputs. But while PC gamers generally prefer to use a keyboard and mouse, others prefer to play using a controller or gamepad. If your keyboard and mouse combo isn't cutting it, here's how to use a controller to play Call of Duty: Warzone on PC.
How to use a controller to play Warzone on PC
If you want to use a controller to play Call of Duty: Warzone on PC, you need to change a setting in the game's Options menu. Within Options, find the tab labeled General. Look for the Input Device setting and change it from Keyboard and Mouse to Controller.

Any modern PC compatible controller should work in Warzone. That said, not all controllers on the market are supported. If you're looking to use a DualShock 4, Switch Pro Controller, or Xbox gamepad, you'll be safe. However, you will need to plug in the controller and make sure it works before loading the game.
It's also worth noting that you can play Warzone on consoles using a keyboard and mouse instead of a controller. The process is basically the same: go to Options, General, Input Device, then select Keyboard and Mouse.
You may be thinking: why would anyone want to use a controller to play Warzone on PC? The simplest answer is ergonomics: the controllers are designed to be held in the hands and all buttons are arranged simply. For some, however, using a controller on PC allows for easier gameplay. This is down to aiming for assistance, which essentially makes it easier to hit other players.
Regardless of why you choose to use a controller to play Call of Duty: Warzone on PC, the process is simple. With the controller connected, simply launch the game and change the preferred input device setting in the Options menu.
