Computer gamers are using console game pads more often because the current generation of consoles share many similarities with computers. Connecting a Playstation 3 controller to your PC to play games can sometimes work without an additional download, but Team Fortress 2 requires a driver that will map out the keys and configure the controller.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Download and install "PS3 TF2" to your PC.

  2. 2

    Connect the PS3 controller to your PC's USB port.

  3. 3

    Press and release the "PS" button on the controller. This will make the PC recognise it as a connected device.

  4. 4

    Open Team Fortress 2 and open "Game Pad Options." Select the "PS3 controller" for player one.

  5. 5

    Push the right arrow on the D-pad after the game begins to activate the controller.
