Smash Ultimate Control Sensitivity – How to Make Controls Smoother

Super Smash Bros Ultimate is out now exclusively on Nintendo Switch, and fans and critics alike have sung its praises in almost every regard. However, there is one aspect of the game that has left some players less than impressed: the stiffness of its controls. As luck would have it, there is a way for players to increase the Smash Ultimate control sensitivity. Those stiff Smash controls should become as smooth as butter with this easy trick.

Smash Ultimate Stiff Controls – What’s the Issue?

While most are enjoying all the content on offer in Smash Ultimate, some have noted that the default controls feel stiff to use in comparison to the likes of Brawl and Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS. Thankfully, if the controls feel a little too stiff and unresponsive to your liking, you can alter the controller sensitivity easily.

Smash Ultimate is a hectic fighter, with smooth movement and attacks, so of course, you will likely want your controller sensitivity to be as high as possible when playing to get the most out of the game. Read on to discover exactly how you can increase your Smash Ultimate control sensitivity.

How to Adjust Smash Ultimate Control Sensitivity

As stated above, you might be playing Smash Ultimate and feeling like the controls are a touch too stiff and slow for your liking. The controller sensitivity levels can be adjusted, however.

To change your controller sensitivity settings in Smash Ultimate, you’ll want to follow these steps:

  • Turn on Smash Ultimate
  • Head over to Settings
  • Open the Gameplay Settings tab
  • Scroll through until you see an option for “Controller Sensitivity”
  • Turn Controller Sensitivity up to the highest setting

Following these simple steps, your Smash Ultimate experience should be a fair amount smoother than it was before. If this doesn’t work, try a different controller. There are plenty of controllers you can use in Smash Ultimate.
