Why You Should Use DualSense on Deathloop

Fallout 76 is now out, and if you’re playing on PC, you might want to consider connecting a DualSense PS5 controller to your system. Deathloop has DualSense support on PC, allowing users who connect the PS5 controller to their hardware to feel tactile feedback and adaptive triggers as those found in the PS5 game.

However, PC players will not hear the built-in controller speaker through which Julianna talks to (read: berates) the game’s protagonist, Colt. These taunts will be present, although they won’t come through the controller – this is a shame because it sounds like radio static.

Immersing yourself is the key.

The DualSense PS5 controller adds a sense of immersion to Deathloop’s firefights. Adaptive triggers give it the illusion that you have even more control over your weapons, while tactile feedback lets you feel things such as explosions (nearly) as if you were there. These features enhance Deathloop’s depth and make the experience more pleasurable.

I’d advise PC gamers to give Deathloop a try with a DualSense controller, at the very least. However, this would depend on whether or not the player owns both a PC and PS5 (which is still difficult to come by). Some players may also want to avoid using a controller with Deathloop since it’s a first-person shooter and mouse and keyboard are known to provide greater accuracy when shooting.
