It's still easier to aim turrets with a mouse than a controller. The problem isn't that it's difficult, but that it's not fun. It's another symptom of how the BFV design team seems to have lost sight of "fun" as the goal for any well designed game.

BTW, I also find flying to be easier with a mouse than a controller. I believe most "pro-pilots" on PC have preferred mouse controls ever since BF3.

Nah, in their heart it's joysticks. But the BF games have always known crappy joystick support, thus everyone has to use mouse, macros and keyboard. BF2 was the only BF game where joysticks really shined in conjunction with the flight physics.
Controller flying is actually alot like joystick-ish. You can at least properly do the textbook maneuvers with it. Harder to do that with mouse+KB.

@Hau_ruck I can't seem to figure out the seat switching. I've mapped the seats 1-4 on the PS4 swipe touch pad control, going clockwise (so up is seat 1, left is seat 2, ect). But I can never seem to get it to work in game, so I went to the practice range.


I can't seem to get it to work at all in the Churchill either. The only time it seems to work is when I'm in the passenger seat of the Kubelwagon. From there, I can easily switch to seat 1 driver or seat 2 gunner. But when I'm in either of those seats, I can't switch out of them.

Is this some sort of bug?

Also, @BleedingUranium I know you're on xbox, but have you experienced anything similar?

Well I haven't tried to use the touch pad before so I don't know if it works. Did you make sure to change controls for both driver and gunner? It sounds like you only changed the gunner controls. My setup for the halftrack for example is:

Driver- x for roof MG facing the front, O for front port MG and triangle for rear facing MG


Gunner - x to return to the driver seat, O to switch to port MG from other seats, triangle to switch to rear MG from other seats, right on the d-pad to cycle through seats. down on the d-pad for gunner crouch.


It took a bit of getting used to but works fine now. tanks can be harder because they have fewer buttons free for assigning and the d-pad is already assigned to abilities. Let me know how u go with the touch pad. it could end up being a better solution.

You have to make sure you map them for every single control section, as they're all separate.

That was exactly the problem, I had only changed the soldier controls, which is why it would only work in the passenger seat of the Kubelwagon. Thanks!

For anyone wondering, the swipe mapping has worked out great, very responsive and easy to remember.

Jealous of PS4s touch pad (though I think Xbone controller is better otherwise)

I’ve had to go to extreme lengths to free up buttons on Xbox

And once you get it right, all this power will be yours:

And if you get into trouble you can always just bail:

In all seriousness though, I don't know how people even play maps like Hamada without these things. Just go G-F, F-G with the occasional foray into E or C. Earn a bunch of points, call in the AT version, lock yourself in a private squad to escape NPCs stealing your vehicle and you can top the board easy.

Halftracks are hilarious. You can mow down an entire squad and enemies will just shrug their shoulders and continue to run into your bullets

Yeah they are ridiculous. If you are not moving you are the most unassuming vehicle on the battlefield. If you are in the inside gunner's seat you can also not be spotted by anything else than the muzzle flash. They blend in well with the environment, too. You never show up on the minimap either unless a recon does so. I believe it is just not part of the player's conditioning to see a stationary, seemingly empty, transport vehicle as a threat. They will also look for an infantry threat first before turning to you. If you are engaged you can always retreat, because they are decently sturdy from the front, and as far as I know the only vehicle that can always repair to 100% from the inside. Once you are repaired you can either relocate to a new spot, or go onto the old one and start farming again.
