Tips and Tricks

  • Each rear button can only hold one assignment at a time.
  • You can enter remap mode to change a single button. You do not need to reassign every button each time. Once you have reassigned your desired button, simply exit remap mode as you would normally.
  • You can un-assign a rear button to make it non-functional by entering remap mode, pressing the rear button once, then pressing the button to exit remap mode (i.e. the touchpad for PS4, Mic button for PS5, and the Select button for Xbox controllers.)
