How to deactivate the vibration of my PlayStation 5 controller? – Setting

In November 2020, Play Station launched its new compatible DualSense controller for the PS5 console. According to Hideaki Nishino, this controller retains the qualities gamers have come to love about the DualShock 4 while adding new functionality along with an updated design.

The vibration in our control undoubtedly takes our gaming experience to another level, however, sometimes we may want to disable vibrations either for a better experience or simply to save battery. In today’s article we teach you how to configure the vibration of our control.

What to do to adjust the vibration intensity of your PS5 controller?

Many times we find ourselves playing and we notice that the vibrations of our control can be very strong or, on the contrary, we would like them to be stronger.

Luckily we can adjust its intensity to ours with a couple of settings and to do this we will only have to follow the following steps:

  1. Press the center PS button on your controller
  2. When the menu opens, go to the accessories section
  3. Once there, click on the controller you want to configure and then select ‘Remote settings’.
  4. Now we go to the ‘Vibration intensity’ option and select between intense, medium and low.

How can you disable the vibration of your PS5 DualSense?

If what you want is to deactivate the vibration of your DualSense remote then you just have to follow the steps in the previous section and once you are in ‘Vibration intensity’ just select ‘Deactivate’.

How to do it in a single video game?

If you want to adjust or completely disable your controller vibrations, but have the settings apply to a specific game, then the process for doing so becomes a bit different, as it depends a lot on how your game settings are organized .

However, it is not impossible either. When we are in the game we are going to press the button to open the menu on our controller and we will go to the settings section . Once in there we just follow these simple steps:

  1. Using the ‘L1’ or ‘R1’ buttons we will go to the ‘Remote Options’.
  2. Then we go to ‘vibration’ and deactivate it.
  3. Finally we will apply the changes by pressing the triangle on our controller.

And just like that, the configurations that we apply to our controller will be applied only to that game , so you won’t have to configure it over and over again every time you play something different. The individual settings you make on your PS5 controller will be stored and kept secure  by placing a password on the profile you have active .

What other features of the PS5 DualSense can you adjust from the settings?

As you must already know , our DualSense remote has more functions than just vibrating . This is what makes it unique.

In addition to its new way of vibrating, the DualSense has a speaker system which increases the gaming experience. At the same time this function can be easily changed, whether you want to lower the volume or mute it completely, you just have to go to the settings of the controller.

A new function that the DualSense wireless controls bring is its trigger effect, which consists of activating a vibration in one of the side buttons when we press it for a certain time.

This effect is activated in certain actions, such as when we are going to shoot a weapon, draw a bowstring or even accelerate . To select the intensity of this effect or simply turn it off, head into the controller settings.

Now our DualSense controls bring new lights on the controller , and like all the previous ones, this function can also be modified. In the remote settings you can choose how intense you want them to be or, if you prefer, turn them off completely. You will always be able to access advanced configuration features from your profile when  you sign in to your PlayStation Network account.

How do you reset the settings of a PS5 DualSense wireless controller?

Sometimes your DualSense controller may start to behave a bit strange and consequently you want to reset its settings . Resetting the settings of a DualSense controller is not a complicated process, but keep in mind that you will need to turn off your PS5 console.

Since you have your console turned off, locate the small hole on the back of the controller . This hole is located right next to the Sony logo.

At the bottom of this hole is the button to reset our control, so you will have to use a tool or a clip to get to it. Insert the clip into the hole and hold it down for a few seconds to reset your controller, almost similar to resetting an xbox controller.

Once you have done this you will only have to turn on your console again and reconnect your controller via bluetooth or via a USB cable .
