Crysis Warhead does not include built-in support for most gamepads, and by default only functions with the Microsoft Xbox 360 controller for Windows and a limited number of other devices. Logitech offers software to address this problem and give gamers controller compatibility in any game. Although some Logitech controller models may be more suited for the run-and-gun gameplay of Crysis Warhead, Logitech's gamepad profiler program will allow any modern Logitech gamepad to work with Crysis Warhead. The software is available as a free download on Logitech's website.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Open a web browser and navigate to the Logitech website. Click "Support" and select "Product Support." Locate your specific Logitech controller, specify your operating system and download the installation file. Open the file to install the software.

  2. 2

    Plug in or otherwise connect the Logitech controller and start the Logitech Profiler program. The program will automatically detect the connected device.

  3. 3

    Click on the "Profile" menu and choose "New." Enter a name for the profile. Profiles are unique to each game you use with the software.

  4. 4

    Click the "Browse" button and navigate to the "Crysis.exe" file used to start Crysis Warhead. By default, this file is located in the "Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crisis WARHEAD\Bin32" folder, though the location may be different if you did not use the default installation path. Click "OK."

  5. 5

    Click on a button and highlight "Select Command." Click on the command you wish to use for that specific button, and press "OK" to continue. Select a mouse button rather than the "Select Command" option to assign that button to fire a weapon, as Crysis Warhead uses the left and right mouse buttons as primary and secondary fire, respectively. Repeat this step for each button on the controller.

  6. 6

    Select a stick and axis in the lower left, highlight "Select Assignment" and click on "New Axis Assignments." The number of axis assignments available will depend on the type of controller connected.

  7. 7

    Name the assignment and select actions from the drop-down menus to give the axis unique commands for both forward and backward inputs. Click the "Edit" button to create a custom assignment or assign the axis to a keystroke. Click "OK" and repeat the step to assign the controller's other axes.

  8. 8

    Click the "Play Crysis Warhead" button to start the game using the newly created controller settings.
