According to the first reviews, Hogwarts Legacy might win the prize for the game of the year, but there is certainly no prize for the controller control, not even a certificate of participation. But don’t worry, we’ll show you how to get accurate, direct, and smooth control with the controller on the console and PC.
What’s the problem? While on PC it’s mainly the lousy performance that causes criticism, console gamers are at war with the controller controls. Looking around and moving with the controller simply doesn’t feel right. It’s spongy, inaccurate, and doesn’t respond directly to the input. Guided.news has found out how you can not only improve the control via controller but perfect it.

Improve poor controller control in Hogwarts Legacy – Here’s how.
Why does it feel “wrong”? The problem with the controller is related to the camera settings. In the options of Hogwarts Legacy, you can find items like “Camera acceleration”. Among other things, this ensures that the speed at which you look around increases over time. As a result, aiming becomes more difficult. But even more happens: Acceleration causes a threshold that your stick has to cross in order for your character to move at all in the game. So the solution to this issue is quite simple.
Here’s how to fix the camera problem:
- Go into the game options of Hogwarts Legacy.
- Scroll down until you see some sliders.
- Set camera acceleration to 0.
- Set camera sensitivity to 1.5 to 1.7.

Save your settings and return to the game. Try it out and look around a bit, the sheer feel should already be much better. The camera now reacts to the smallest inputs via the sticks and you can aim accurately. The spongy lagging of the controller controls should also be fixed with this.
