      What do you use to play and why?

      I’m just using stock keyboard and mouse but interested to see what others prefer and why?

      Controller for races and platforming and vibe collects, keyboard and mouse for shooters!

      Best of both worlds

      Wait, I should be able to use my controller? I’d assumed because it wasn’t recognised it was keyboard/mouse only.

      Yes you can use a controller, I use a windows xbox 360 controller which automatically registers, I’ve heard others have success with ps4, switch and other xbox controllers but they may need to use a cable.

      Aha, I unplugged my Razer and re-plugged it in when the game was running and it worked. Will have to feedback my opinion on which is better in a couple of hours.

      I use controller, but might use kb+mouse when I’m in a shooter. I’m absolutely horrible at aiming on controllers lol

      I thought I’d like the controller better, but just couldn’t get the view right, and all the buttons were harder to reach and get straight in my head (as a new player) so went back to keyboard/mouse and haven’t looked back!

      Wouldn’t let me vote but I use both. Mostly keyboard/mouse but I grew up on controller so sometimes I use my DS4.

      Keyboard and mouse : Shooters or races with tight turns

      Controller: majority races/ vibes

      Like everyone has mentioned the aiming is too difficult with the controller, mouse and keyboard definitely have the upper hand there. I’ve only used the 360 controller however I do think the controller is nicer when going up winding paths.

      Controller for me in game and menu, only use my keyboard for typing and searching really.

      Gives the game more of a console or AAA experience that you find with console or very popular pc games.

      I use the controller to play parties, u can move slower or faster, walk, run, etc. I like aiming with the controller as it’s easier for me and I am used to fps games on ps4 and Xbox. However, I love to create and I find the mouse and keyboard to come more naturally to me for that (maybe it’s just because that’s how I learned).

      I was surprised to see that there were many people playing on a controller. I personally prefer playing on the mouse since it’s possible to make pixel perfect placements in build mode 🙂

        Agree, building would be much harder on a controller.

      I think the mouse and keyboaed is definitely superior for build mode and navigating the menus and searching for parties as well as for shooting, but the controller is much better for platforming, running, flying and movement due to the camera control, the sensitivity of the movement, the buttons vs keyboard keys.

      That’s why being able to use both on the fly is such a blessing! Everyone has their preferences though and it’s what they are used to. We just need Mythical to incorporate/unlock key binding changes!

      I prefer to use keyboard and mouse as I have more control. I’ve used the controller before and my camera view just darts all over the place and I just end up with a headache each time 🙁

      I don’t think I’ve ever used the keyboard and mouse ever in my life for playing a game.  I grew up on consoles and always purchased controllers to play on PC.  A mouse and keyboard set up might make building a lot easier though…

      Anything that has a first person or third person (over the shoulder) view where you have to mouse look around… I always use a keyboard and mouse. So in Blankos, it’s definitely going to be keyboard and mouse, (we just need to add the ability to rebind keys now).

      Anything that is a 2d side scrolling game (like Super Mario Brothers) … I use a controller.

      It’s probably due to my age. I was used to playing side scrolling games with a controller, and when first person shooters on PC became a thing… moved to mouse and keyboard. It’s hard to train my hands to play Fortnite on the Switch or Xbox. I need a mouse and keyboard for that.

      Controller is good for some games but now I use mouse and keyboard most of the time for accuracy. A controller is probably fun for playing Blankos but I recommend mouse and keyboard for building.

      Oddly this is one of the few games i like more on keyboard and mouse despite me usually using controllers for these types of titles

      I’ve always used keyboard and mouse for most games I play so naturally that’s what I use for Blankos, and I’m very surprised to see that the majority of people commenting here use controller to some degree, I find kbm to be a lot more precise.

      Mouse and keyboard for all, but the race I would like to try using a controller.

      I only use controller atm, how is keyboard & mouse? Thinking about making the transition.

      In general I can’t compare the two because I haven’t gotten the chance to play the game using a controller yet. But I’ve heard playing on keyboard has it’s advantages. Many say the gun mechanics were built more around pc players. Which I could definitely see. But playing on controller definitely has it’s perks. I’ve seen some players say movement is easier. But I have no idea how accurate this is, as I don’t play on controller.

      Mouse and Keyboard. As much as I like controller I feel like a majority of the time they wear out pretty quickly.

      I met a problem with daily challenges “Run 1500 meters.”  I played with a controller , which button should I press to be counted as “RUN”.  I tried X to dash but in challenges, it was not counted as run.

        the sprint click the left analog stick down. That’s how you sprint. It also records point A to point B, so when you sprint, stop sprinting when you a re furthest away before you start sprinting again to optimise your distance run. Hope that helps.

        Thanks a lot.

        Press left analog stick(L3) down and sprint for a distance.  That’s what I need!

      Mouse and keyboard, but seeing how many are using controllers I’m going to give races/vibes a try with my xbox 360 USB controller.
