Find out how to set controller profiles and settings to suit your unique play style. 

How to create a profile for your DualSense Edge wireless controller

You can save stick sensitivity, custom button assignments, vibration intensity, and more to custom profiles.

  1. Go to Settings > Accessories.

  2. Select DualSense Edge Wireless Controller Custom Profiles.

  3. Select Create Custom Profile, enter a name for your custom profile, then select OK.

  4. Select an item to customize.

  • Vibration Intensity

  • Trigger Effect Intensity

  • When you select a profile from the Assigned Profiles or Unassigned Profiles tabs, you can edit that profile.
  • Profiles you create appear in the Unassigned Profiles tab. When you assign a profile to a shortcut, it moves to the Assigned Profiles tab.
  • Highlight the profile and select … (More) to change the profile's name, delete the profile or copy the profile.

How to use profile shortcuts

Assign profile shortcuts so you can switch to them during gameplay and use them on other PS5 consoles.

Access shortcuts by holding down the Fn button and then pressing an action button (triangle button, circle button, cross button, or square button).

The profile assigned to the Fn button and the triangle button shortcut is the default profile and can’t be changed. You can assign profiles you’ve made to the other three shortcuts.

  1. Go to Settings > Accessories.

  2. Select DualSense Edge Wireless Controller > Custom Profiles.

  3. Go to the Unassigned Profiles tab and select Assign next to the profile you want to assign.

  4. Select a shortcut.
    If there's already a profile assigned to the shortcut, that profile's name appears. If you assign the profile, the previous profile is overwritten.

  5. Use the shortcut to change your profile.

  • To configure your controller to vibrate and have its player indicator flash when switching profiles, go to the home screen and select Settings Accessories DualSense Edge Wireless Controller Receive Feedback When Switching Profiles
  • In addition to your controller vibrating and the player indicator flashing, you can also have a pop-up appear on your screen.

How to customize your controller's button assignments

Make using your DualSense Edge™ wireless controller easier for you by changing the button assignments.

  1. Create or edit a custom profile, and select Customize Button Assignments.

  2. Select the button you want to change and then select the function you want to assign to it.
    If you select Disable, pressing the button won't have an input.

  3. Select Apply
  4. Select Back to Game to return to your game. Your customization is automatically saved.
    Press and hold the Fn button, and then press the options button to return to the customization menu.
  • You can't assign the Fn button to another function, nor can you assign another button to the function of the Fn button.

  • Press Reset to reset all your button assignments to their default values.

  • Pressing the Fn button disables the use of buttons and the functions assigned to them. 

  • You always need to assign circle and cross buttons.

  • While you can swap L2 and R2 trigger buttons, you can’t assign another button to work as the trigger buttons or assign multiple functions to L2 and R2. 

How to customize stick input for your DualSense Edge wireless controller

Adjust the sensitivity and deadzone of the sticks on your DualSense Edge wireless controller.

  1. Create or edit a custom profile, and select Stick Sensitivity/Deadzone.

  2. Use the directional keys to select the items you want to change.

Name your profile. 

Choose to customize the left stick or the right stick. 

See the sensitivity when you move the stick. 

Return to your game and see the results of your customization. When you return to your game, the changes you made are automatically saved.

When you want to make adjustments again, press and hold the Fn button, and then press the options button to return to this screen.

Choose from 6 types of sensitivity curves. 

Fine-tune the curve type you chose in E.

Deadzone is the range that you can tilt the stick before it's recognized as an input. For example, with a deadzone of 10% you need to exceed a tilt of 10% before your game registers an input.

The horizontal axis is the stick tilt and the vertical axis is the input reflected in game. For example, when there's a gradual slope, greatly tilting the stick results in smooth movement. When there's a steep slope, tilting the stick even slightly results in fast movement.

How to set trigger deadzone

Deadzone is the amount that you can press a button before it's recognized as an input.

For example, when you're gripping your controller tightly and accidentally tap the L2 or R2 buttons, you can set it so that no input is registered.

  1. Create or edit a custom profile, and select Trigger Deadzone.
  2. Follow on-screen instructions to set the Input range.

Name your profile. 

When turned on, only one side is displayed. Changes you make affect both left and right triggers equally.

Set the range that you have to press the trigger for your game to register an input.

For example, if you set the input range from 30 to 70, pressing the trigger deeper than 30 starts to register an input in your game. Input reaches a maximum depth of 70. Pressing the trigger shallower than 30 or deeper than 70 doesn't register an input.

See the input range when you press the L2 or R2 buttons.

Return to your game and see the results of your customization. When you return to your game, the changes you made are automatically saved.

When you want to make adjustments again, press and hold the Fn button, and then press the options button to return to this screen.

How to change the function menu

You can change what appears on the function menu when you press and hold the Fn button.

  1. Go to Settings > Accessories > DualSense Edge Wireless Controller.

  2. Select Function Menu.

  • Please note, the DualSense Edge controller volume features (both adjust volume and audio balance) are not available when using a Pulse 3D headset. This is because the Pulse 3D headset has its own hardware buttons to adjust these settings.

Having issues with button settings and profiles?

If you're experiencing unexpected button inputs, try reviewing the in-game controller settings in case they clash with your DualSense Edge wireless controller profile.
