Like it or not, the Battlefield franchise is very big on consoles, and it doesn’t seem to be changing anytime soon with Battlefield V.
Having said that, the Battlefield V console settings in terms of controls aren’t really optimized out of the gate. Sure, it’s usable, but if you want to do well, and be the top dog in your squad, you’ll need to tweak your console settings. Fortunately for you, we have just the thing! Thanks to YouTuber TheTacticalBrit, he has posted a detailed Battlefield V console settings tutorial that goes over everything! Aiming sensitivity, vehicle look sensitivity and more are discussed! Check out the video below.
Here’s a quick rundown on what to expect in the video:
The best settings mentioned here give the player sharper reaction times, and helps you improve your chances in combat engagements.
The sensitivity listed seeks to find a good trade off between speed and what feels natural.
Audio settings is best when using surround sound, or headphones.
Stick aiming acceleration, which is a big deal to most, dropped to 40 percent (halfway between Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 4’s style of aiming).
L1 and R1 are superior for aiming and shooting (he explains why).

Got that? Good! Try these out and let us know how it feels. Note that even if these console settings are based on just the beta, chances are it’ll also be the same when the full game launches this November 20 — unless DICE implements some sweeping changes, of course.
In other Battlefield V news, DICE has confirmed that it’s tweaking the max ammo capacity, starting ammo and more due to beta feedback. There’s also this cool bit that DICE has implemented for snipers when they go on a killing streak.
