For those who are having this kind of issue, we’re here to give you the recommended fixes that you can try.

Fix Hitman 3 Controller Issues

Method #1

One of the most common issue why your controller is not working in Hitman 3 is your computer’s outdated or incompatible driver. To fix this issue, you can try installing the generic driver for controllers. This method usually works like a magic. If you haven’t tried it yet, here’s how you can install the generic controller driver.

  1. Plug the controller on your PC.
  2. Open Device Manager and find the USB Root Hub option.
  3. Right-click and select Update Driver.
  4. Choose the Browse my computer for driver software option.
  5. Then select Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer option.
  6. Choose USB Root Hub from the list and hit Next.

If more than 2 USB Root Hub option is appearing on your Device Manager, simply repeat the process on the remaining root hub.


Method #2

Another method that we can use is updating the driver using Xbox 360 Peripherals that can be found in your computer’s settings. To do this, simply follow the steps below:

  1. Connect the controller on your PC
  2. Open Device Manager and look for Other Devices option.
  3. Right-click the device with the question mark icon and select Update Driver.
  4. Select Browse my computer for driver software.
  5. Pick Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer.
  6. Find and select Xbox 360 Peripherals.
  7. Select Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver for Windows and hit next.
  8. Confirm changes by hitting Yes option and close the Device Manager.

Your controller should be working now. If it’s still not working, let’s try the last method that we know.
