I just buy a elite controller? Will you give me some advice? Configurations? I hear that there is a problem whit the plasma pistol when you try to shoot, I will be grateful.
You mean you just bought an Elite Controller. Glad we got that out of the way. Now for starters you can fix the charging up problem for the plasma pistol and railgun. All you have to do is go to your controller setting and setup your right trigger to 50% because the default is 100. And start with two paddles if you plan on using them, don’t go RAMBO and -Yoink- and think that 4 paddles out of the box is the way to go. Using the paddles is like relearning how to play all over again. So take your time, get owned a few times to become the greatest. Peace
Turn off sensitivity. Make sure how to use.
If you use the trigger stops you need to adjust the sensitivities of the triggers. As long as it’s between 20 and 50 you should be fine. Here is my set up:
-Default bumper jumper
-Both trigger stops on, triggers adjusted 5/25 each
-Smooth curve on both sticks with it set to 3 notches from left, and radial calcuation for both (otherwise it won’t register diagonals properly). Also I use the normal sticks.
-Only 2 paddles; left bottom = A, right top = X; both are the small paddles
Of course you can do whatever you feel is best, but I have a few tips:
- Find the best “base” default control scheme and work from there.
- Try your best to avoid messing with face buttons because it will make menu navigation a real hassle. If you do need to change it, I recommend having your second scheme (little switch in the middle) mapped with a “default” button layout so that you can easily switch if you need to use menus.
- Don’t start with all 4 paddles. Honestly, you don’t need them all, 2 should be plenty. The more you add the harder it will be to learn, and you will get “finger confused” often.
Hope that helps.
I think the thing that helped me the most was not trying to change too much at once. I kept the same button layout but added two paddles. Once I got comfortable with those, then I added a third paddle. I’m not sure if I will add a fourth or not.
I play with Default, with left paddle: boost, right top paddle: jump, right lower paddle crouch.
sticks smooth, look sense: 3, look accel: 2, deadzones 0%.
> -Both trigger stops on, triggers adjusted 5/25 each
Is there any benefit or difference in performance with this setting? My hair triggers are currently set to 0/50.
My advice is map buttons to the paddles that won’t screw you up in the middle of a fire fight
My set up: Top left- Thruster, Bottom left- Jump, Top right- Melee, Bottom right- Crouch
You can adjust later on depending but I suggest something along those lines because it will take awhile to get use to holding it without accidently squeezing any of the paddles and end up doing something like reload or grenade throw all the ones I mentioned are for the most part evasive things that could potentially help you if pressed accidently
since you were talking about this
Only start with 2 paddles! I think that’s the best advice anyone can give you. I’ve just now been able to add a 3rd successfully after almost 2 months of using it. Once you really get used to the paddles though it’s great!
Like others have said, start with only one or two paddles. It takes a while to get used to them. You’re essentially having to train your brain on using something you’ve probably never used before. It took me a good two weeks to get used to them. I recommend starting with campaign just to get used to the feel. Then, don’t be too hard on yourself when you go into matchmaking…there will be plenty of times that you mistakenly hit the paddle.
Don’t forget to go into the Halo 5 controller setting menu and change your deadzones to 0 or just a few percentage above. The elite sticks are fantastically better than the default xbox controller and there is virtually no deadzone. You’ll probably need to update your sensitivity and acceleration settings too.
Also, go to the controller settings on the dashboard and set your right trigger to 50% for plasma charging.
I got used to 4 paddles within about a week. It’s annoying accidentally hitting paddle’s but i was over that quickly…good luck!
I started with 4 paddles and sucked hard for a couple weeks. Played a couple other games with them and used them to navigate menus till I had the exact buttons memorized. Totally worth it.
Use a high in-game sensitivity (I prefer 6-8) with the long right stick. It gives you the same control as a shorter stick on low sensitivities, but also lets you whip around quickly. 0% inner and outer dead zones.
All four paddles mapped to ABXY (definitely takes time to get used to; took me about 2 weeks, but it’s sooo worth it).
Hair trigger locks on both with RT dead zone set to 0-1, and LT dead zone set to something around 0-25 (whatever lets you rescope the quickest).
Standard D-pad instead of the fighting D-pad.
I also use “Aggressive” for the left stick (movement stick) to strafe faster, and turn the Xbox button brightness all the way down to save battery, but these are optional.
Don’t get frustrated, you are going to suck and probably be pressing the wrong button a first a lot . It definitely takes some getting used to. Not just playing with paddles but the sticks themselves react differently than a regular controller, I set a slight delay on my right stick and it helped a bunch that comes down to preference though
Change one option at a change and adjust over several games (15+) to see if its working. If you dont like it change it back and readjust or use another option. As for the paddles, if you are finding them hard to use (accidental presses), add one at a time and play for a few weeks then add another. This will help. I only use the two left paddles as I like to grab the control hard with my right hand. Initially I used all 4 paddles and got owned.
keep hair triggers off. You can not charge certain guns. I play on H4 settings before I got the controller so I I have my two right paddles as jump, my bottom left as crouch/slide, and my top left as boost. It makes the momentum combo easier for me, which wasn’t hard before having it. But it allows me to crouch evade easier while hitting my shots.

You can, you just have to adjust the trigger range.
Keep using the paddles and you will get used to them. Don’t worry it gets easier.

I went full rambo out of the box. took me a few weeks to nail down a preference that seemed natural - while getting owned in the process. Def. start with the campaign to get a feel for the new mechanics.
Side note, my K/D improved by almost a whole point after acquiring the elite. Not overnight mind you, but this controller is the -Yoink- for Halo 5.
Lots of good advice from others already, but two things that I say are important and need repeating:
- take it slow and don’t get frustrated too much. It takes time to get used to a new setup and you will suck for a while.
- Make adjustments one at a time and see how it affects your playing giving it a good 10-12 games to judge whether it improves your playing or not
It’s an awesome controller and worth the money and time invested in getting it set-up! Agree with other posters here in that it does improve K/D when you finally get used to it and find settings that work FOR YOU!
