author's profile notes
This profile is compatible with any standard PC Gamepad, Xbox 360 Controller, Playstation (PS4, PS3, PSX), or any similar devices
Edit, after playing for a few hours I have changed right shoulder Button to "E" interact and Left shoulder button to sprint and D-pad right to "C" as 3rd/1st person switch, you no longer have a quick select button so just use X and Y and D-pad 3,4,5,6, also reduced Right joypads speed.


This is a Pinnacle 360 Joypad profile for War Z, every key is mapped to the Joypad except chat controls and gun attachments, you really have no need to touch the keyboard unless you have to.

A few things, the right joypad bumper is sprint as well as steady AIM, that's just what I found while playing, it's nice.

Down on the D-pad is prone just hit it again to stand up

B button is crouch, I changed the setting so it does not make you move automatically when pressed, it works much like the key does on a keyboard so you can creep better.

Up on D-pad is Empty hands and X and Y is Primary and Secondary weapons, the Left Shoulder button is quick switch through inventory and I have setup 3-6 number keys on the D-pads 8 way D-pad, but on the old 360 joypads you can end up selecting the wrong thing, so unless you have one of the new 360 pads with the pop up D-pad I would disable it and just use quick switch.

Reload and Gun rate is on Left and Right Joypad buttons.

Hope you like the profile, change it how you like.
