Since battle royale is a newer concept to the PS4 players, there might be a lot of you who don't know how to be a boss in this game. Not really a problem guys, the first step is to master the controls of the game. Doing that alone is going to get you on the highest skill bracket with ease.

Since a joystick has a much lesser number of buttons than a keyboard, there has to be quite a few toggling keys. Hence there are types of setups for controls in the PS4 version of the game.

There are 2 kinds of control setup for your PlayStation.

  1. Combat Pro
  2. Build Pro

Frankly, remembering all the key binds might be a bit hard in the beginning, but in just a few games, your fingers will hold them together without a second thought because the layout is set in such a user-friendly way and each of these control setups has their own pros.

#1 Combat Pro


This control setup favors those who like fighting and gunning down opponents. The users of this setup will definitely have a few milliseconds lead on choosing the desired weapon out of their inventory than the build pro users.

#2 Build Pro

Build Pro
Build Pro

Build pro is for those who like to gain good control over the fight and then eliminate the opponent from a better position. Sometimes just shooting the opponent isn't going to be enough, we need to make sure we have them under our control so we have an advantage over them by them being in our sights and us being invisible to them.

L2 - Equip Building Piece

L1 - Change Building Material

R1 - Rotate Building Piece

R2 - Place Building/Confirm

L3 - Sprint

These 2 setups are very helpful according to your gameplay. If you're someone who is very agile, likes to move a lot and build for dominance, then I would suggest you to go with the build pro controller set up. But if you're just good at aiming than most people, like to kill enemies where ever they are, then you need to use the combat pro controller set up.

I hope this has helped you to choose your controller set up. I wish you all the Victory royales!
