Dragon’s Dogma 2 is the newest RPG from Capcom. It is known for its unique combat system which is quite interactive and similar to the one from Monster Hunter. Of course, fighting is very important in DD2, and to do that properly, it is important to pick proper controlling device. Many players can’t decide between gamepads and keyboards. Let’s talk about this.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 (DD2) – Controller vs Keyboard and Mouse

If want to start Dragon’s Dogma 2 without adjusting anything, a controller is a better option. Buttons are well optimized and easy to use. Even if you don’t play on gamepad every day, you should learn its shortcuts quite easily. What is more, you can rebind most of the buttons. Controller has also one additional option which is unavailable in the case of keyboard – vibrations. It can be additional warning signal, for example when you lose health.

However, if you are willing to go through some settings, don’t cross out a keyboard and mouse yet, as DD2 allows to rebind keys. So, you can adjust your experience fully. In my case, I did not like the default Ctr + additional button combination to Switch Weapon Skill, as it was uncomfortable in the long term. However, after changing Control to my mouse side button, the game became more intuitive and natural to operate. I would say that I had a similar experience to my controller playthrough.
