Like the PC and PlayStation 3 versions, "Unreal Tournament 3" for the Xbox 360 does not include out-of-the-box support for a third-person viewpoint. Nor are mods available for the Xbox 360 to unlock the feature. In order to play "Unreal Tournament 3" in third- person view with an Xbox controller, you must use the controller with a modded PC version of the game.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • PC copy of "Unreal Tournament 3"
  • Xbox 360 Controller

  1. 1

    Acquire and install the PC version of "Unreal Tournament 3" on your computer. Buy the game quite cheaply at most retailers; since it came out in 2007, many stores now sell the PC version for less than 10 dollars (as of 2011).

  2. 2

    Download the unofficial Action Cam mod, linked to in the Resources section below. Install and activate the mod to enable third-person view on the PC version.

  3. 3

    Use your Xbox 360 controller with your PC to most closely emulate the console gaming experience. Download the latest game patches from the in-game updater; the patched version supports the Xbox 360 controller natively, so you just need to plug the controller into your USB drive.

Tips and warnings

  • The Xbox 360 version of "Unreal Tournament 3" does not support any mods and little user-generated content, and most game reviewers cited the game for its inferior controls. Using the Xbox 360 controller with the PC version not only allows a third-person mode, but is closer to the original game experience.
  • The PlayStation 3 version of "Unreal Tournament 3" does support the Action Cam mod, and thus allows for a third-person "Unreal Tournament" console experience.
