Fix Death's Door Controller Not Working

Death’s Door came out of nowhere on Steam and it’s currently the second most sold title after New World. However, there is an issue with the game where users with controllers have no in-game input. The game is not detecting the controller. For some reason, Death’s Door simply does not register the controller. If you have been struggling with the issue, there are some solutions that may resolve your problem, so stick with the post.

How to Fix Death’s Door Controller Not Working Issue

The problem does not affect any specific controller. Users with the DualSense, Nacon, Xbox controller, and others are facing the same issue. Before you head to the rest of the solutions, we suggest that you restart the system and Steam. Once the system has restarted, plug in the controller and check if it’s still failing to work. If it’s, here are two solutions you can try to fix Death’s Door Controller Not Working.

Disable Steam Input

If you have the Steam Input enabled, it could be possibly causing problems with this game. Usually, it’s recommended that you have this option enabled, but sometimes it can act up with certain games. Hence, disable it. Here are the steps you need to follow.

  1. Go to the Steam Library
  2. Right-click on Death’s Door and select Properties
  3. Go to the Controller tab and under Override for Death’s Door, select Disable Steam Input.

Now, try to play the game and check if the issue still occurs. If it does, try the next solution.

Set the Correct Controller

Ensure that your correct controller is detected on Steam and use the option on Steam to set the correct controller. Here are the steps you can follow.

  1. Go to the Steam Library
  2. Right-click on Death’s Door and select Properties
  3. Go to the Controller tab and click on the Controller General Settings link
  4. Set the correct controller.

Here is another solution, although doubtful, it’s worked for the user, so you can try it.


If none of the above solutions work, the issue is most likely with the game and the developers would have to address it. We will update this post when we have more information about the issue.
