Battlefield 2042 has not had the best beta launches you can expect from a triple-A title, but the gameplay is awesome. There are obviously the nay-sayers, but the majority of complaints during the early access were due to the bugs and errors in the game. One of those issues is the Battlefield 2042 controller not working on PC. Players who prefer to play the game using the controller are finding it hard as the game does not accept input from the device. Keep reading as we have some solutions to fix the Battlefield 2042 controller not working on the PC issue.
Battlefield 2042 Controller Not Working on PC Fix
There is a range of bugs with controllers in Battlefield 2042. It’s not just that the controllers don’t connect. For players who were able to bypass the bug, it turns out the keybindings are bugged or their character act oddly such as looking at the sky. Here are some solutions for the Battlefield controller bug on PC.
- The game does not sync well with the Elite Controller. If you have the option change the controller it should work. Also, ensure that no other peripherals are plugged in the USB port. Before the game loads, unplug everything that you have plugged in. If that does not work, reboot the game and launch after unplugging everything except the controller.
- Ensure that while using the controller, the keyboard and mouse are unplugged. You can load the game and then, unplug the keyboard and mouse.
- If the above two things did not work, check that the problem is not with the controller connection. Ensure that the controller is properly connected.
- Use the wired connection to connect the controller. Don’t use the controller over wireless.
Finally, if you are still getting the controller bug in battlefield 2042 after trying the above solutions, your only hope is that the EA releases a patch before the open beta to address a range of issues with the game including the controller bug.
