Best Layout for Sony Nav x G502 ( HANDS DOWN )
« on: 10:56 AM - 06/04/18 »
Iíve made this post before but understand thereíre a lot of people whoíre new to using the G502 and Nav.

I can promise you, if you give yourself enough time to learn this layout your performance in game will be greatly effected.

I came up with this layout with Fortnite souly in mind but it will 100% work for every game which allows you the option to crouch with R3. ( I use this loadoit for every game )


R2 - Fire - Mouse Left
L2 - ADS - L2
R3 - Crouch - Sniper button ( the button your right thumb is always on )
L3 - Sprint - L3
R1 - Next Weapon / Forward - G5 ( on Mouse )
L1 - Previous Weapon / Back - L1 ( on Sony Nav )
X - Jump - Mouse Right
Circle - Build Mode - G8 ( on Mouse )
Square - Reload - G7 ( on Mouse )
Triangle - Harvest Weapon - Scroll Wheel ( click/press )
Up- Inventory - Up ( DPAD )
Down - Emote - Down ( DPAD )
Left - Left on DPAD
Right - Right on DPAD
Circle on Sony Nav - Game menu - Circle ( on Sony Nav )
X on Sony Nav - Map - X ( on Sony Nav )
Home button - Guide - PlayStation button ( on Sony Nav )
Sharw button - Share - G9 ( on Mouse )
DPI UP - G4 ( on Mouse ) I only have DPI up on my Mouse and it cycles through all my dpi presets

I disagree.

I chose this layout so you donít need to pick your fingers up and rearrange them as much as other load outs, the only change I would make which I canít be bothered to do it put triangle onto G4.

Itís not necessary to put both R1 and L1 onto the mouse and can cause interruptions as I still sometimes change my dpi if Iím fighting loads of people.

This is for someone who doesnít use macros and is actually pressing every button they need to when theyíre building ( On Fortnite )

Not sure if anyon switches their load outs for different games ( donít understand why anyone would ) but the only time Iíve ever changed it is for H1Z1 because the idiots make you crouch with circle and thereís no way to change it.

I disagree.

If you have something better it would help if you added it instead of just stating the fact you disagree, doesnít really help lol

I just dislike the clickbait nature of this post. Everyone will have their own preferred settings. For a new xim user coming from controller, this is what I'd recommend.

L2 - RButton on mouse
R2 - LButton on mouse
L1 - L1 on nav
R1 - L2 on nav
Square - DPI Down Button
Triangle - DPI Up Button
Circle - Mouse Forward Button
Cross - Big thumb button
R3 - Mouse Back Button
L3 - Stick down on Nav
Pause - x on nav
Touchpad - o on nav
Dpad-Dpad on nav

I haven't used a nav in over a year, am now a keyboard player, so I may have misremembered but this is what I use. maybe swap R3 and Circle for fortnite, I always liked jump and crouch right next to each other on mouse for easy jump/drop shots, and everything else felt pretty natural for me as a new xim user.

For the people whoíre using the scroll wheel, especially helps for L1 ok Fortnite you donít have to love your thumb, just slightly roll it and you can keep it on the sniper button for crouch. You canít feel ď click baited ď if you havenít tried it.

Yes, I can. This title might as well be a youtube video with ninja's face on one side, and a big red arrow pointing to a g502 or something on the other. There is no such thing as a "Best Layout .. HANDS DOWN" as you claim, so don't make that claim.

^ True, some users just get excited about something that works well for them and want to share. I agree though, no such thing as a perfect setup for everyone.


Sharing is good, perfection is impossible! Everyone's different. A perfect example, millions of people are enjoying Fortnite. I personally think its a pretty mess, reminds me of a girl I knew in College Lol...

So thanks for sharing. It is interesting to see others ideas.

Are you seriously getting mad over me trying to help people?😂 If you would stop and think for a second you would understand where I say for people whoíre still using the scroll  wheel, how can someone have a preference if theyíre using something they either donít like or havenít even tried? Alright then, with that said, again, you canít call it clickbait if you havenít tried it.

Really donít understand why youíre so hurt over me trying to help users but alright Master.

I will explain why I call it the best again. Iíve tried a lot of layouts and this works the best, call it preference but as I explained the buttons are in their specific locations so you can quickly press the buttons you need to press without having to lift your fingers unless youíre clicking a button which doesnít benefit combat.

Your explanation for why this is ď clickbait ď again just makes you seem hurt, not sure by what but it really does, because people have preferences their canít be a best Layout? Who told you that.

Yes, I'm completely enraged.

I'm going to be frank, this sentence makes zero sense to me. Maybe I have poor reading comprehension, maybe not, but I'll reiterate: The scroll wheel is bad. It never will be as consistently accurate as pushing actual buttons/keys.

Yes, I can. This post is clickbait.

If you want to share your configs and try to help people, feel free. I just dislike the means of you doing so.


Stop here to avoid pettiness.

Bravo! There it is, true science, it looks like PcSkeng is the great solver of the age old problem: "What is the Best Layout for Sony Nav x G502 ( HANDS DOWN )?."

Quote
call it preference but
Why would I call it what it is?
Quote
the buttons are in their specific locations so you can quickly press the buttons you need to press without having to lift your fingers
And I bet this is proven to be the only permutation of button assignments where this is the case. It isn't like peripherals are already designed to have accessible buttons.
Quote
unless youíre clicking a button which doesnít benefit combat.
And I bet this is true for every single game, because they all use the same buttons for all combat.

Quote
Your explanation for why this is ď clickbait ď again just makes you seem hurt
Annoyed would be a better word
Quote
not sure by what but it really does, because people have preferences their canít be a best Layout?
This sentence is really hard to understand, but if you're trying to say someone's preferences can be the best layout, you are wrong. There is no best layout for everyone and every game.
Quote
Who told you that.
My brain.


This title is stupid, this thread is stupid, this poll is stupid, and one other thing in this thread seems to be very stupid.
