JibbSmart's Notes

Here I try to squeeze everything into the left Joy-Con. SR to shoot, tap SL for alternate fire, hold it for Shift ability. Tap West to reload, hold it for your E ability. North for ultimate, South to jump.

I've tested this with Soldier 76 and with Widowmaker. With Widowmaker I had to set her scope to "toggle" mode so she could pull up her scope with a tap. Some heroes will need different configurations as their controls differ.

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.
