If you are tired of the default Halo Infinite Xbox controller settings, or want to align it more with your Destiny 2 controls, then look no further. If you don’t like mouse and keyboard controls, playing multiple FPS games at once means you often switch between controller layouts, so why not make it easier? In this guide, I will discuss the three settings I programmed for the Elite Series 2 controller, which I switch between when playing Halo Infinite multiplayer games. I will also bring these to the Halo Infinite event.
The best Halo Infinite controller settings
First, the default settings. You can try some pre-programmed variants, but for now, let’s take a look at the basics first. Many of you may have played this loading or similar in past Halo games or other FPS games, so you will be familiar with its structure. The Xbox control scheme always seems to be slightly different from what you see on PlayStation, so if the Xbox Series S/X is your first foray into the Microsoft field, you may still be used to it.
This one is suitable for all Bungie fans. My favorite custom controller scheme for all FPS games comes directly from Destiny 2. No matter which console I play on, I will always use the cold shoulder setting. For women with very small hands, this is a simple and comfortable setting. I am used to it. For me, it makes the most sense.I can never, never understand that someone is used to aiming by pressing the left stick when the left trigger/L1 is pressed there.
If you attach great importance to PVP competitions-and have Elite Series 2 controllers-then you will want to try this custom layout. There are a bunch of triggers on the back of Elite Series 2 for additional mapping. If, like me, your little hands can’t bear the weight of Elite Series 2 during long training sessions, you can map aiming, shooting, and melee actions to the back trigger to make it more comfortable.
It is worth noting that although the screenshot above lists Y, X, A, and B as switching weapons, etc., these are actually mapped to the trigger on the back of the controller. With this setting, Y, X, A, and B control things like volume and other random things that are more related to Xbox Series X itself rather than Halo Infinite.
Elite Series 2 allows you to program multiple controller layouts at the same time, so if you share it with someone or like to rotate different settings for different games, it’s worth the time to do so.
The only disadvantage is that you can only save one custom control setting in Halo Infinite at a time, so although the controller has different settings, you may need to spend some time making the final custom setting. You can also adjust many other settings, such as holding down or switching to crouch, axial dead zone, etc. For real sus people, you can even reverse the appearance.
