Titanfall to Have Multiple Controller Layouts, Respawn Confirms

| 6 Jan 2014 16:35

Titanfall includes Halo's "Bumper Jumper" controller layout, and other button configurations.

In news that should please shooter fans, Respawn Entertainment has confirmed that Titanfall will support multiple controller layouts. This was confirmed by Respawn developer "scriptacus" over on the official Titanfall forums , where he also confirmed an alternate controller method wherein jumping can be initiated by pressing the Xbox One controller's bumper.

There is a layout with melee and crouch swapped, as well as a variant that allows for jumping on a bumper. (my personal favorite, as it allows you to use the "look" stick while jumping)

More than one controller layout confirmed!

Jumping using the bumper on the Xbox controllers should be familiar to Halo players and is commonly known as the "Bumper Jumper" layout; while switching the melee and crouch buttons is something Call of Duty and Battlefield fans should be accustomed to. For reference, the default Titanfall control scheme can be seen in the image above, and is very similar to Call of Duty's control layout -- which shouldn't be surprising, since Respawn is comprised of former staff members from Call of Duty developers, Infinity Ward.

In other Titanfall news, it has been confirmed by Respawn that quick-scoping and no-scoping sniper rifles will be "ineffective" in the game.

Published by EA, Titanfall will hit retail on March 11 for the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
