Control settings in TLoU 2

Reloading weapons in The Last of Us: Part II is not very intuitive - The Last of Us 2: Controls PS4 - Appendix - The Last of Us 2 Guide
  1. The Last of Us 2 allows the player to completely redefine controls after choosing Customize Controls. You can select different buttons for all main actions as well as make analog sticks switch places.
  2. The Camera Sensitivity section allows the player to set the sensitivity for movements on the X-axis and on the Y-axis separately for the left and right analog sticks.
  3. The Inversion Camera section allows you to reverse the X-axis and the Y-axis, i.e. to perform in-game moves in the opposite direction to the motion of the analog stick (e.g. down after tilting the sitck upwards).
  4. The Assistance section contains tools that make the gameplay easier. Among them is a complex aim assist setting. You can set its sensitivity, as well as activate the auto-aim option (the crosshair automatically targets the opponent).

How to reload a gun in TLoU2?

Reloading weapons in The Last of Us: Part II is not very intuitive. It is not activated by pressing the Square, as in most other productions. You have to press R2, and reloading will only happen if you are not currently aiming the gun, i.e. you do not have the L2 button held down. Otherwise, your character won't reload the gun, he'll simply fire the weapon.

How to dismount a horse?

Use Triangle to jump on and off a horse - The Last of Us 2: Controls PS4 - Appendix - The Last of Us 2 Guide

Use Triangle to jump on and off a horse. It should be noted that the game may not always allow you to get off the horse. For example, in one of the initial stages of Patrol, you have to wait for Ellie and Dina to reach the first buildings. Only then will the game allow you to get off your horse and search the ruined buildings.
