Spider-Man Miles Morales is the latest release from PlayStation Studios to join their PC lineup. Originally released in 2020 for PS4 and PS5, Miles Morales is now out on Steam and Epic Games Store. The port was handled by Nixxes Software and Insomniac Games, and much like Spider-Man Remastered, Miles Morales is an excellent PC release with tons of settings, support, and features. If you want to fix the Spider-Man Miles Morales controller issues on PC, though, here is how you can do that.

Fixing the Spider-Man Miles Morales Controller Issue

Just like Spider-Man Remastered, Miles Morales also supports a wide variety of controllers, with native profiles as well. This means that you’ll get support and proper in-game prompts for the controller you’ve plugged in.

While players can also use Steam Input to play with unsupported controllers, it’s also possible that Steam Input can interfere with the native profiles. To get around this, we recommend turning off Steam Input or setting it to Default Settings in case you have a supported controller plugged in.

Disable Steam Input

You can easily use those by following the steps below.

  • Make sure the game isn’t running
  • Open Steam and then open your Library
  • Here, right-click on Spider-Man Miles Morales
  • Select Properties
Steam Properties
Miles Morales Properties in Steam
  • Now, select CONTROLLER at the left
  • Click the dropdown icon next to OVERRIDE FOR Spider-Man Miles Morales
  • Set it to “Disable Steam Input“ ( or Use default settings)
Properties > Controller > Disable Steam Input
Disable Steam Input

Try both options (Disable and Default), and see which works for you. Either of these should ensure that you get the proper prompts and get the controller working.

Spider-Man Miles Morales Supported Controllers for PC

According to Insomniac Games, Miles Morales supports the following controllers natively.

  • DualSense (PlayStation 5)
  • DualShock 4 (PlayStation 4)
  • Xbox One
  • Xbox 360
  • XInput compatible controllers
  • Steam Deck

These have appropriate prompts and rumble, as you’d expect. For any other controller, you want to turn Steam Input on.

PSA for Dualsense Users

If you’re using a Dualsense controller and want to fully use its controller features, including adaptive trigger feedback and haptic response, you need to use a wired connection.

Only Plug-In One Controller at a Time

It’s a good idea to plug in a single controller while you’re playing to avoid issues. Not just controllers but any other gaming inputs like wheels or HOTAS sticks could likely interfere.

Check Detected Controllers

You also want to check if all your plugged-in controllers are showing up in Steam. To do this, follow the steps below.

  • Click on Steam at the top left corner of the client, and select Settings
Steam > Settings
Steam Settings
  • Now, click on Controller in the list at the left
  • Here, click on General Controller Settings
Settings > Controller > General Controller Settings
General Controller Settings
  • Any controllers you have plugged in will show up under Detected Controllers
General Controller Settings > Detected Controllers
Detected Controllers
