Set Dead Zone Settings in COD

How to Set Deadzone settings in Call of Duty(COD)

By

If you play Call of Duty Modern Warfare or CoD Warzone with the controller, i.e on PS4 or Xbox One, you might be also looking for the settings for the dead area (“Deadzone”) to aim or target your enemies better and to win the game. In this article we will explain you how to use the setting correctly to aim or target your enemies better.

What is the “dead zone”?

The dead zone, or “dead zone”, refers to the area between the controller’s movement and the actual transmission in the game. In simple words, deadzone can be classified as smaller dead zone and larger dead zone :

  • a smaller dead zone transfers movement earlier to the game
  • a larger dead zone transfers a movement later to the game

With a larger dead zone, you have to keep moving the analog stick until you finally get a reaction in the game. This allows you to target your enemies more precisely which is what is important for controller gamers due to the crossplay between PC, PS4 and Xbox One .

Since update 1.20 of April 29, 2020, you can change the deadzone directly in the options of Modern Warfare / Warzone. You can find the setting under Options → Controller → Dead area.

How to Correctly set deadzone settings and aim better:

How to set the dead zone correctly: If you want to adapt the settings for the dead area exactly to you and your controller, follow these steps:

So you set the optimal deadzone settings

1. Create your own game

Create your own game, at best with no time limit. Players who only have Warzone Free2Play mode should find a quiet corner in a round of loot money.

2.Find a suitable test location

Find the edge that is as vertical as possible on which you can align your crosshairs.

3. Adjust sticks

Sets the Horizontal and Vertical Stick Sensitivity settings to 20 (maximum)

4. Set dead zone

Set the dead area to 0.00 (minimum)

5. Check movement


Move the sticks and let go. Then watch your crosshairs – is it moving?

6. Adjust deadzone


If the crosshair moves by itself, the dead area increases by 0.01.

7. Check again and repeat


Repeat this until the crosshairs stop moving if you don’t touch the sticks.

8. Complete settings


Once you have found the ideal setting for the dead area, reset the remaining settings to your preferences and keep them for the dead zone.

Why is that important to have deadzone settings in Call on Duty?

This setting enables you to aim and hit more precisely. Especially if you already use the best essays for better aiming and still fail to hit, this could be due to the attitude for the dead zone.

If you use your controller a lot, it may be that the sticks are a bit worn out. Then they no longer react so well and the dead zone can shift by itself, which is why you can readjust them with the option. However, even new controllers can bring this problem with them, as the video from Ace shows.
