When we opened BattleBit Remastered, our controllers did not work right out of the box. The game does detect any connected controllers, but by default, the buttons aren’t bound to anything. In order to properly use a controller for BattleBit Remastered, you’ll need to manually rebind the controls to buttons on your controller, one by one.
While this method of using a controller for BattleBit Remastered does work, it’s a bit cumbersome, so let’s save some time by using Steam’s helpful controller support functions, namely the community configurations.
With BattleBit Remastered open, open the Steam overlay (SHIFT + TAB keys by default), then click on the controller settings button and select your current layout to change layouts. You might see some good ones under the recommended list, but if nothing is showing up, switch over to the community layouts list.
You can browse community controller layouts made by other BattleBit Remastered players here, and there are already lots of well-made configurations, so be sure to try the most popular ones and see if they fit your needs.
If none of the community configurations work out for you, you can always make your own. Also, if the game isn’t reading any inputs from your controller but you know it’s connected, try enabling Steam input, which should fix it.
That’s everything you need to know about BattleBit Remastered‘s controller support. If you have any other questions about using a controller for the game, let us know in the comments below.
