HITMAN (2016) was the first Hitman game that I played on PC with a controller, and I continue to do so in HITMAN 2.
Previous to that, I hadn’t touched a Hitman game on a console until Absolution.
I really like how optimized the gamepad control scheme is in H1 and H2.
Except when I have to aim with pinpoint precision at an alarming speed.
Fast Target is great, but doesn’t work on things besides people and cameras, and turning Aim Assist on or off doesn’t seem to do much…
And sadly the game doesn’t offer any options regarding aim acceleration, stick deadzone, etc.
So sometimes I see myself dropping the gamepad and reach for the mouse, but this is hard to do so when trying to beat a mission as fast as possible.
I’d like to be able to occasionally play with mouse and keyboard, but there’s a separate key for every single action.
Stretching your index finger to Take Disguise (T), Use Item (G) or Drag Body (B)? How about pressing Z to drop an item while running?
You can’t even bind the mouse wheel to other functions because they’re bound to the sniper zoom.
If only you could bind a key to two actions, one being a press and another a hold…
Anyway, with the exception of using my mouse’s two additional buttons, I don’t even know where to start configuring a more comfortable layout.
Have you customized your keyboard and mouse layout? What changes have you done?
Feel free to share your keybinds.
