Battlefield V Best Console Settings – Controls, Aiming Acceleration & More Listed

battlefield 5 best console settings

With Battlefield V, DICE went into overdrive mode when came to how customizable the controls and game settings are in the console versions. Not only can the FOV (field of view) slider be changed, but even aiming stick acceleration, and more can be tweaked as well.

If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed but still want the best Battlefield V console settings, you’ve come to the right place! Thanks to YouTuber The Tactical Brit, we can now tweak Battlefield V’s console settings for an optimum in-game performance! Note that Tactical was playing on the PS4 and is basing these values using a default DualShck 4. For Xbox One gamers, it’s 1:1 the same for that version. If you didn’t see a specific game setting value mentioned below, that means Tactical left it as is (default setting/value). Check out the video below to hear his explanation on why the settings are at a specific value, but if you want the condensed version, check out the list below.

  • Soldier Aim Sensitivity = 54%
  • Vehicle Aim Sensitivity = keep it around 40%+
  • Controls, Vehicle Driver Buttons = Veteran”
  • Soldier Buttons, changed aiming from L2 and R2 to L1 and R1 (due to springs in L2 and R2, there’s a retention/delay and not an instant movement)

Advanced Settings:

  • Stick Aiming Acceleration (default is 100, drop to 20)
  • Uniform Soldier Aiming toggle to “on”

Gameplay Settings:

  • Inventory is sometimes turned off (when you’re familiar with your loadout, it helps add real estate to your screen area)
  • Crosshair Color is changed to bright pink (since nothing in Battlefield V is colored bright pink which makes it easier to stand out)
  • Overlay Shadow Strength turn up to 50 percent
  • Headshot color changed to bright green
  • Objective Icon Opacity change to 20%
  • Gadget Icon Opacity turn to 10%
  • Soldier Auto Leaning turned off
  • Reload Hint turned off
  • Hint System turned off

Video Settings:

  • Brightness set at 65% (though it’s monitor dependent)
  • Field of View set to 75
  • Vehicle Field of View set to 70
  • ADS Field of View turned off
  • Motion Blur at 30 to 50 percent
  • Chromatic Abberation turned off
  • Film Grain turned off
  • Vignette turned off
  • Lens Distortion turned off

Go give these changes a try and let us know how it’s working out for you in the comments below.

In other Battlefield V news, DICE has announced that we’ll see a Tides of War chapter 1 teaser next week! In addition to that, the game’s time-to-kill (TTK) and time-to-death (TTD) are being tweaked.

Leave it to Alex to continue to promote this piece of crap, show some damn dignity already. Anyway, the only setting you need to use for BF5 is a nifty little feature called Uninstall. It corrects the mistake of installing it.
