JibbSmart's Notes

This config is mostly inspired by console layouts. I've replaced the crouch button (Circle on DS4) with a gyro-off button, and moved crouch to clicking the left stick (L3). I've swapped the triggers and shoulder buttons -- R1 shoots instead of R2, for example. This is because I find pressing the triggers is difficult without accidentally tilting the controller at the same time, which is bad for my aim. Also, DS4 triggers aren't very responsive.

Reloading and use are mapped to the same input. Tap to reload, hold to use. I think there are environmental elements, like the telescope in Horizon Lunar Colony, that, weirdly, requires holding the reload button to interact with, but this config provides no way to hold reload.

On the d-pad, right to change hero, up to cycle weapons, down for emotes and quick chat, left for push-to-talk. But it's impractical to press and hold d-pad buttons while playing, so if I need voice chat I have it always on.

Because this configuration is pretty standard, and because I created the example files that come with JoyShockMapper, I've left the mouse settings as a reference to the included _3Dmouse settings.

How to Use this Config

Using JoyShockMapper configurations is easy once you know how. If you haven't used it before, check out the guide. For using a community config like this one, you only need to get through the first two sections — Installing JSM and Using an already-made configuration file.

Just copy the above configuration into a text file, change the IN_GAME_SENS to match your in-game settings, and then drag that file into JoyShockMapper and hit Enter to use it right away. Some games have their own limitations with certain controllers or require some extra setup, so make sure to check for any notes near top of the main Overwatch page.
