With the farewell of Verdansk and the arrival of Caldera to the Warzone universe more and more players aim to join the community as the map reset is very inviting for new, and returning, players to join the battle royale.

We have already enjoyed a thorough preview of what’s expected for us in the tropical terrains of Caldera as well as the rewards that we will claim during the first season of Warzone Pacific, but there’s another key aspect that we need to go over.

Having the correct controller settings is an underrated difference-maker in Warzone matches and we want to share them so you can have your best shot at claiming your first Warzone victory as quickly as possible.

To access the controller settings menu you can press the “start” button on your controller and it should be the first menu that pops open just like in the image above.

We will go over each of those settings and what has worked for us but remember you can play around with any of these to find the ideal combo for you.
