This page of the guide provides information about controls in Deathloop. First of all, we've listed all control keys along with their functions. We have also included the most important additional control settings.
Control keys on PS5

Additional control options
The PS5 version of Deathloop offers several important control options:
- The Auto-Aim Model is the most important option. It's just another name for aim assist. It's enabled in the most advanced version by default, i.e. it adds friction (the camera slows down when the crosshair gets close to the enemy) and pulls the mechanical crosshair (it's pulled towards the enemy). This may seem quite intrusive at first, but actually, it's a big help in eliminating enemies, especially once you've been detected.
- You can disable individual auto-aim options (e.g. leave only friction or only attraction), and also set the Auto-Aim Strength. Its default value is 100 and you can decrease or increase it. There is also a additional crosshair sensitivity option, which can help you even more in customizing the aim settings to your preferences (the initial value is 0).
- Other control settings concern e.g. the support for the controller speaker, vibration intensity and effects of the controller triggers (L2 / R2 resistance e.g. when aiming or shooting).
