Halo Infinite is wrapping up to be one of the best major titles launched this year. I’ve been playing multiplayer with friends and having a blast.
You might be wondering if you can play Halo Infinite with a PS5 controller on a PC. Does Halo Infinite support the PS5 controller? Let’s take a look.
Can You Play Halo Infinite with a PS5 Controller on a PC?
Halo Infinite does not natively support the PS5 controller but you can use DS4 Windows to emulate an Xbox controller. At the moment, Halo Infinite does not support the PS5 controller’s haptic feedback or adaptive triggers.
Halo Infinite PS5 Controller on Steam:
The exception is if you bought Halo Infinite through Steam. If you launch Halo Infinite through Steam’s Big Picture Mode, the PS5 controller will work without any other programs needed.
The button layout will match the PS5 controller too. If Halo Infinite does not recognize the PS5 controller through Steam, open DS4 Windows to emulate it.
On the other hand, if you use Xbox Game Pass on a PC, you will need to use DS4 Windows because the Xbox app does not support PS5 controllers.
You could also try using Steam’s “Add Non-Supported Game to Library” option to add Halo Infinite from the Xbox app to Steam. You should be able to use that method without having to use a controller emulator.
Bear in mind, Halo Infinite is an Xbox title, and Microsoft is unlikely to support a competitor’s hardware. The good news is you can “trick” Windows into thinking the PS5 controller is an Xbox controller with DS4 Windows. I have been playing Halo Infinite with a PS5 controller using this method.
The downside to using an emulator is the game thinks an Xbox controller is being used, so the buttons are mapped to Xbox buttons. Nevertheless, it’s pretty easy to remember the layout of the Xbox controller and match it to your PS5 controller.
I personally really like the feel of the PS5 controller.
How to Play Halo Infinite with a PS5 Controller:
- Download DS4 Windows
- Connect your PS5 controller (Bluetooth or wired)
- Confirm DS4 Windows recognizes the controller
- Launch Halo Infinite
- Halo Infinite will recognize the PS5 controller as an Xbox controller
- Play the game
- Teabag enemies
Can You Play Halo Masterchief Collection with a PS5 Controller?
You can play Halo Masterchief Collection with a PS5 controller on Steam with Big Picture Mode. If you have the game on Gamepass, you will need to use DS4 Windows to emulate the PS5 controller to an Xbox controller.
Can You Play Halo Infinite with a PS4 Controller on a PC?
You can play Halo Infinite with a PS4 controller on a PC but you need to use DS4 Windows to emulate an Xbox controller. Most Microsoft games do not natively support PlayStation controllers.
So that’s how you play Halo Infinite with a PS5 controller on a PC. I recommend launching the game through Steam because the Steam platform natively supports the PS5 controller.
However, sometimes configurations can get messed up and it won’t detect the controller. In that case, using DS4 Windows should fix the issue. Just remember, you won’t get haptic feedback or adaptive triggers.
