Fallout 76's PC Controls Are A Mess - Steam Punks

Fallout 76's controls on PC leave a lot to be desired and it could be worth trading your keyboard and mouse for a controller for the best experience. Let us know what you think in the comments!

GameSpot's PC-focused original show Steam Punks is back with a new episode where Edmond and Jess talk about Fallout 76.

Specifically, Jess and Edmond discuss how the multiplayer game's keyboard and mouse controls leave much to be desired. Edmond, who played many, many hours of Fallout 76 to review the game, comments about how Fallout 76's keyboard and mouse controls are inconsistent, while the melee controls are also less-than-excellent, in Edmond's mind.

Edmond also talks about why you might want to consider using a controller to play Fallout 76 (and potentially some other games, too). And Jess goes into how there might have been a better way to optimise the keyboard and mouse controls overall.

Also in the episode, Jess and Edmond respond to some of your questions from the previous Steam Punks about whether or not Red Dead Redemption 2 will ever come to PC. Watch the full video above to see it all!

Fallout 76 is available now on PC through Bethesda's own launcher, while the game is also available on console for PS4 and Xbox One. Bethesda is working on multiple new updates to Fallout 76, so there is some hope that the keyboard and mouse issues get some attention down the track.
