If you are planning to use a controller when playing The Finals on PC, you might need to change a few settings to suit your needs. For example, changing the crosshair. To adjust your controller settings, follow these steps:

  • From the main lobby screen, select the cog wheel to the top right. This opens up the settings.
  • Select "Settings" then navigate over to the "Controller" settings.
  • Here, you'll be able to change sensitivity, button bindings, aim assist, and more. 

And that's all there is to it. The controller support in The Finals is in much better state compared to the game's beta, so players shouldn't be working with too much a disadvantage when playing against keyboard and mouse users.
