Controls & Button Mapping

After putting a good deal of time into playing the beta, I have to say that I'm generally satisfied and am looking forward to diving into the full game. So far, the only thing that I've had problems with is the controller options and button mapping. I know a lot of modern games don't offer this anymore and I'm not sure why, but what ever happened to custom control schemes? You can customize a lot in this game, but not your controls? The default settings have sprint on the move stick (L3, Left stick button), which I thought would be ok... until I found that when I go to activate it it doesn't stay active the majority of the time. The only way that it stays active 100% of the time is if I press in the stick and hold it in the entire time that I want to sprint. Has anyone else experienced this issue? This gets uncomfortable fairly quickly. I have been playing on a PS4 and the controller is only a week old - I don't think that the issue is with my controller because it works just fine with other games. I will be playing the beta on xbox also, to see if I notice a difference. The other setup for controls that I considered was 'Mirror' - this puts sprint on the right stick and works well all of the time. The problem with this configuration is that it changes your aim and shoot buttons to opposite triggers, which was just too much for me to get used to. Would anyone else like to see more control schemes or have the option to create there own control layout?

  • No they messed it up. No free mapping, nowhere else to put sprint than on L3 but the Mirror preset which is crap.

    • This is especially relevant for the D-Pad.

    • I love the green thumb preset, and I probably wouldn't change it, but I see no reason to keep others from doing so.

    • I was on the 360 and never had any sprint issues. I've never used a PS4 controller but my buddy says he doesn't like it as much as an XBOX one. Besides that point, I like the control scheme and it works fine for me. I think it is a bit ridiculous that games in 2014 don't have custom inputs. About 90% of PC games I play I change the controls right away. That's just plain dumb in my opinion.

      • It gets really awkward in the crucible as you have to run through small areas and rooms quite often and it is really hard to press L3 while pushing the left analog stick in the forward direction. It would be nice if we could toggle sprint On and Off with the push of a button (say L3) or maybe bind it to some other key altogether (not that there is any key which is unused, but still) or maybe we could use a couple of combinations for the key bindings.

        • After playing the beta on the 360, I can say that I am able to sprint almost 100% of the time with the default control setup while using the 360 controller. I have no idea why the PS4 controller is so finicky, but it is incredibly frustrating. Has anyone else experienced this?
