Help! I have a PlayStation 4 controller and I want to use it to play Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 on PC. But when I connect it to my computer and tried to use it in the game, it just didn’t work. None of the buttons are working. Even the analog stick is also not working. How can I fix this?

Apart from the PlayStation 4 controllers, it seems even owners of Xbox controllers and generic controllers are also having some issues with the Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts 2.

Hey, my Xbox One controller is not working on Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts 2, but it works on other games like Forza Horizon 4. I’m not sure what’s the problem. Can you help me fix this issue?

I just installed Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 hoping to experience the game on PC. The game works fine when I use the keyboard but I prefer to use a controller. I am using Logitech F710 and I have the latest driver for this controller. After I insert the controller using USB, it doesn’t work on Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts 2. Any help to fix this?

As you can see, there are lots of players who have the same problem as you have – controllers are not working on Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts 2. Fortunately, we have found a solution that will help you fix this issue in the game. Below, we have compiled the most effective methods to fix the controller issues on Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 (PC version).

How to Fix Not Working Controller in Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts 2

Before we start with the main troubleshooting, let’s try first the most basic method to fix this issue. Depending on which controller you are using to play Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts 2, make sure that the controller support is enabled on Steam. Here’s how to enable it:

  1. Launch the Steam application.
  2. Go to the Settings by clicking the Steam option on the upper-left of the program.
  3. Go to the Controller section.
  4. Click the General Controller Settings button and a new window should appear.
  5. From there, tick the box corresponding to the controller you are using.

Steam Controller Support

For example, if you are using a PlayStation controller, simply tick the box next to the PlayStation Configuration Support option.

Just close the window to save changes. The next thing you have to do is run the game and see if the issue has been solved. Are your controllers still unresponsive? Then let’s try the next method below.

Update Your Controller Drivers

Just like any other external peripherals, there’s a chance that your computer doesn’t have the driver dedicated to your controller. That is one of the reasons why your controller is not working in Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts 2. If you know the manufacturer of your device, simply visit their website and download the drivers needed. You can even ask their support for the correct driver version that you can use.

If you can’t find the proper and correct controller driver for your device, you can use some third-party software that will automatically fetch the latest driver update for any available hardware connected to your PC. As for our recommendation, you can download IObit’s Driver Booster and get the newest driver update for your PC.

Third-Party Controller Support

Another method to fix your controller is by using third-party controller software. There are a lot of gamepad controllers out there, but in this guide, we highly recommend the following as we have already tested them all.

Please note that we are not associated with any of the third-party controllers that we mentioned here. The list above is based on our very own experience when we used their product.
