Modern Warfare 2: How to Use Mouse and Keyboard for Console (PS and Xbox)
Call of Duty players are in luck, as Modern Warfare 2 now supports keyboard and mouse input from consoles to play the game, but you should also be aware whether your console will pick up on the new gadgets or not. Here we will see how to use the mouse and keyboard to play Modern Warfare 2 on the console.
Next-Gen console players are in luck, as the Xbox Series X|S and the PS5 already have an in-built mouse and keyboard support. The process to implement it is pretty simple. You just need to take in your choice of keyboard and mouse and plug it into the console’s USB port. Once the mouse indicator is showing on the screen, you are good to go. Now all that is left is to change the input device option in MW2 itself. To do that, head over to the game’s settings page, then go to the Controller option and select the device that you want to switch to.
For Current Gen console users, it will be quite a gamble, as you need to ensure that your console will recognize the new devices that you will be pairing it up with. You will need a third-party wired or wireless adaptor that will work with your keyboard and mouse as well as your console. There are plenty of adaptors you can find online that will support your brand of device and work with the PS4 and Xbox One. Once you get that, just plug it into the USB port and wait till the console recognizes it. Once it does, you can play MW2 using the keyboard and mouse.
