‘You’re Just Asking for Frustrations’

Just as with most popular battle royales these days, the controller vs. keyboard and mouse debate has been somewhat of a polarizing topic among the Call of Duty: Warzone community.

Being a title that CoD has traditionally been a controller-only shooter, the increasing support and integration of PC releases and crossplay in recent years has led to players of both inputs often dueling each other in and outside of games.

According to Warzone content creator JGOD, there isn’t a benefit to choosing keyboard and mouse over controller in Call of Duty.

“I think it’s easy for any controller player to kill any keyboard and mouse player,” JGOD said during a recent stream. “That’s literally what aim assist is for. … I don’t know why people play on keyboard and mouse in CoD. It’s like you’re just asking for frustrations with the game.

“I would say that if you’re really good on keyboard and mouse, you probably feel good. But you watch your killcam and you always feel cheated. That’s just how it is because you know how hard it would be to do that with a keyboard and mouse.”

It is not all that surprising to hear JGOD’s take on the topic considering CoD has long been known to be pretty much exclusively a controller-only game at the pro level in 6v6 multiplayer.

Additionally, compared to the likes of Fortnite and Apex Legends — where controller players also take a lot of heat for abusing aim assist — CoD is probably the worst balanced of the three when it comes to the two inputs.

“If I go and take 100 keyboard and mouse players and I take 100 controller players,” JGOD said, “and I put them head to head at random, the controller players would dominate the keyboard and mouse players on average in Warzone.”

Ultimately, of course, players should feel free to use whatever input they’re most comfortable with to play any type of video game casually.
