And luckily, you can easily connect the Controller. The PC version of Overwatch 2 supports Xinput Controllers. This means that you will be able to play the game using Xbox controllers without any problems. What’s more, most third-party Controllers also use Xinput. Therefore, you can simply connect the Controller to a USB port or via Bluetooth and start the game. 

But if you only have PS5 or PS4 controllers, you will have to take a few extra steps. To play Overwatch 2, you will need to download a third-party application for PlayStation Controllers. With these, you can play as if you were using Xinput Controllers. However, it is worth noting that Aim Assist will not work on a PC, whether you are using a Controller or not. This feature is not available on all Overwatch 2 PC servers.
