Diablo 4 Players Frustrated With Controller Support on PC

Highlights

  • Diablo 4 players are frustrated with the lack of controller options and hope Blizzard fixes this issue, sparking a debate on the best way to play.
  • Controller users encounter problems such as not being able to manually sort their inventory or pick up stacked loot, which can be cumbersome.
  • Fans have expressed concerns over the lack of native keyboard and mouse support on consoles, pointing out that other games have managed to implement it successfully.


Some Diablo 4 players are tired of the lack of controller options for the game and hope that Blizzard Entertainment takes the time to fix them. These concerns add to the debate of which way is better to play Diablo 4, a keyboard and mouse or controller.

While other Diablo games have been available to play on consoles for a while now, Diablo 4 is the first game in the series to be made with controller support during the game’s development instead of adding it in later. Thanks to this, fans of the series are now debating if it’s better to play Diablo 4 with a controller or a mouse and keyboard. A keyboard and mouse lend to better accuracy when attacking and make it easier to chat and emote. In contrast, a controller makes it easier for players to move more precisely and keeps it simple to bind spells to easy-to-reach buttons. Of course, the answer is purely up to the player’s preferences, but even the most dedicated controller users for Diablo 4 are starting to see some issues.

Reddit User AZAWESTIE, created a list of problems and missing features when it comes to controller support for the Diablo 4. One of the big issues on the list is that players cannot manually sort their inventory/stash with a controller. The only option is “auto sort,” which can be cumbersome for some players. The other major complaint is that players can not manually pick up stacked loot on the ground. This forces players to pick up everything, open up their menu, and then drop what they don’t want.

The long list of controller-based concerns covers everything from dead zones for walking and the max speed of mounts. Another big concern is the “move to new stash tab” option in Diablo 4 being broken for some players.

When it comes to the comments for the post, most fans of the game feel the same way as the original poster. However, the biggest concern for most players seems to be the lack of native keyboard and mouse support for Diablo 4 on consoles. One Reddit commenter named Xyncan pointed out that Final Fantasy 14 has mouse and keyboard support on modern consoles, so it’s not impossible. The other big complaint from commenters is how annoying it is to pick up items in the game when there are a dozen or more of them on screen. Being able to use a mouse on consoles would help out with that as well.

Diablo 4 is available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X
