    Im currently using a wired 360 controller with xpadder but on shooting games such as call of duty etc. the sensitivity is way off i tried lowering the sensitivity in game but its still way off i was looking online and found this will this fix that issue since its an actual gaming controller designed for pc? just wanna know before i buy thanks

    It's an alright gamepad, but for a few dollars more, you get the far superior Xbox One or Dual Shock 4 controllers, which have official drivers.

    Dualshock 4 officially supports pc with Xinput? O_O
    I have a titan one, is a usb dongle that converts most hid controllers to work on consoles, PS3/PS4/Xbox 360/ Xbox one
    It works with bluetooth but need a adaptor for it, just plug and play, but is just me. It pretty sick for about $50, it even works with wii classic controller or wii u pro controller.

    I should also mention that many FPS/TPS type games have a measure of auto aim/aim assist on the console versions and have no such thing on the PC. It can make a fairly radical difference and not everybody knows it is missing, or might detect it as iffy sensitivity.

    It is not so bad on older games or portal or something a bit less twitchy but for something where you are killed in two shots a lot of the time it makes all the difference.

    I can use an Xbox one controller without any adapters?

    I didn't think about no aim assist on pc maybe that's what it is thank you

    I use my Xbox One controller with a MicroUSB cable, no special adapters.

    The Logitech gamepad is really good. I own one. It takes 2 AA batteries and lasts for months before needing to be replaced. It's basically like a DualShock 3.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    not sure if that will fix that game but i have that controller (the other version being the wired version)
    in my case it was the solution to games that only support Xinput (game controllers usualy use directinput which most games don't support nowadays)
    this means you will be able to play games without xpadder or x360ce emulators...
