Aydan uses the Tactical Flipped mode wherein he uses R3 to crouch and crawl and R3+X to cancel. This setting means you shoot with L1 and R1 and throw utilities with L2 and R2.

Up next is Deadzone. It is recommended that you keep your Deadzone to as low as 0.05. The lower you go, the more sensitive your L2 and R2 sticks become. If you want to jump and shoot at the same time, Aydan recommends using the Stick and move flipped. Test the settings by going lower, slowly, to see which suits you best.

When it comes to stick sensitivity, the streamer recommends keeping it to 7 or 6, which is his personal preference. This helps you move around quickly in the fast-paced environment of Warzone. He also recommends keeping the ADS sensitivity below 1 so it is in-line with your stick sensitivity. This will help you track enemies better.

Keeping the aim-assist to standard is recommended by most players. Now comes the important part; use/reload behavior. Aydan recommends using contextual tapping. You can tap to instantly pick up items while hovering.

Slide behavior is also recommended by Aydan to be kept at tap. This will help you slide cancel whenever necessary. He also recommends using the Automatic Tactical Sprinting mode on.
