Riot Games does not natively support the usage of controller/gamepad in Valorant. Still, many console players have been using their controllers for experiencing the game on PC through third-party controller emulators like REWASD. To do this, you will need to install such software and override your default Valorant keyboard bindings using it.

Installing and Mapping controls for Valorant

Download REWASD from the official website and install it on your PC. After opening the application, follow the given steps to map your bindings.

  • Open the software and look for the three-striped icon on the right-hand side of the screen.
  • After clicking on the icon, choose your Gamepad/Controller from the new drop-down list.
  • Now, go to the main menu and start mapping your keybindings. If you do not know any good controller settings, use our keybindings given below.
