Xcom 2 Xbox 360 Controller ProfileThese are the best bindings i could do and they work well enough until an official patch for controller support is added. ***IMPORTANT!!! I recommend turning off the built in steam controller support as it can mess with the bindings. Go to "Program Files - Steam - SteamApps - Common - Xcom 2 - XcomGame - Config" Then find the defaultinput.ini open it and change this line at the top: bForceEnableController = to False this will turn it off.Controls:Left stick - move cursorright stick - move cameraL3 - zoom inR3 - zoom outdpad up - height updpad down - height downdpad left & right - rotate camera left / rightLeft trigger - Brings up action menu e.g. shoot target, overwatch etcRight trigger - Confirms action / choice in action menu e.g. to select shoot, overwatch etcleft & right bumpers - next / previous soldier / targetX - interact button (doors etc)Y - Reset Camera to Soldier (if moved the cursor / camera far away and want to reset it back to your soldier)A - Confirm movement selectionB - Cancel / back (for menus)Start - Pause / Menu
