Many first-timer FPS gamers have a hard time adjusting to aiming using the controller after they’re accustomed to PC controls. The keybinds and precision aiming are very difficult to achieve in the console. Native keyboard support is what consoles always lacked that dates back to the original Xbox and Playstation. BR games require good reflexes and the ability to respond to the situation in an instant. Fortunately for us, next-generation consoles like Playstation 4/5, Xbox series X/S both officially support native keyboard and mouse.
Players would no longer need to worry about building a new PC, just to play COD vanguard and can enjoy the same immersion and level of gameplay precision that keyboard and mouse offers. Without any further ado, let’s get started on how you can use Keyboard and Mouse on PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
How to use KBM on PS or Xbox consoles
The good news for COD vanguard players is that the game supports native KBM. The complicated part is figuring how to get it to work, or settings that’ll help you achieve that precision aiming. You can easily plug in your keyboard and mouse in your PS5 or Xbox console and you’ll see an icon appearing on your home screen.
You can also use a USB splitter, that’ll give you more than 2 USB slots for your devices to connect to. If you’re using Playstation 4, then you might need a USB splitter as that console only offer two USB ports. It’ll let you connect your headphones, keyboard, and mouse. If you have a PS5, then you’re good to go. Follow the necessary steps to proceed forward
- Once you’re done plugging your KBM, you’ll be prompted with a message “who’s using the keyboard” select your PS or Xbox account.
- After connecting, you’ll notice a mouse cursor that you can move around on your screen.
- Head to the “Settings” menu and then go to “keyboard and mouse”
- Change the “Aiming Input Device” from Controller to “Mouse”
Now that you’re done setting up Keyboard and Mouse in your Playstation or Xbox console. We’ll recommend you to set up a custom match, to see if the inputs of KBM are working as intended. That’s it! You can now enjoy the same precision, speed, and accuracy PC controls offer and enjoy it in your console. You may need to tinker with mouse sensitivity more to get the accuracy you want, and find the one that suits you best. Now you can enjoy playing Call of Duty: Vanguard in its glory.
