Locked Solved [RESOLVED] Cannot fire/shoot while using a controller | POST HERE6 Likes/191 Replies/12903 Viewstrevvahhh 2 posts
doesn’t work with sniper rifles though unfortunately!
same issue, nvidia shield controller on nvidia shield tv and geforce now with ubisoft + so can’t use the steam workaround
been hoping every time i boot the game up for the past week that this would be fixed since so many people have this issue but i guess that’s wishful thinking. still hopeful!

Hy there, i have my first sniper rifle but can' t use it at all, it simply doesn't shoot, i tried everything i thought it could be the reason, but nothing, the rifle doesn't shoot.
All my other weapons are working fine, just the sniper doesn't.
Don't know if it is a bug or whatelse but it is realy gamebreaking.
Playing on xbox series x

Hey everyone, appreciate your input regarding the matter and sorry to hear about this as I understand how impactful not having to sniper rifle can be.
I can see that this issue has been already reported however our team did have difficulties with reproducing it.
Solely for testing purposes, can I check whether everyone has Sniper Rifle assigned to Primary Weapon 3? If you are, did you try switching it with either 1 or 2 to see if issue remains present?
Additionally, if you do happen to have access to multiple sniper rifles, can you try equipping another one or changing the loadout (bullet, mod, etc.)? I can see that @Oregon9581 had this issue with only a single model so curious to see what the findings will be.
Keep us updated!

@ubi-karl I recently switched controllers and I can now use the sniper rifles and in any of the slots but just on that one controller. When I switch back to the first controller the sniper rifle doesn't work in any of the slots, but its only the sniper rifle. All other weapons fire as they should when pressing R2 and zooming in on the map works as it should when pressing R2. Also using that controller R2 works as it should in every other game I play.

If you are using the Xbox Elite controller or something similar with Trigger locks, try disabling it, or for the Elite, set the right Trigger Deadzone to 0-1, so that it registers you fully press the trigger. This has happened to me in a number of different games (including FC6), where certain guns wouldnt fire.
Changing the deadzones helped, and I havent had any issue yet. If you're not using one of those controllers try temporarily changing the fire button and see if that helps. If it does, it might just be something similar you'll have to mess around with.
You might want to change the left trigger to 0-1 as well , it might not be registering that you're fully scoped in, preventing you from firing, but I havent had this issue.
Just turning off the Trigger lock did NOT fix the problem for me on FC6, even though it does for some other games.

I;m having a weird issue with my Thrustmaster Eswap Pro controller.
When aiming down the sight shooting doesnt work...
I press and hold L2/LT and the view changes but when pressing and/or holding R2/RT the view changes back to normal instead of firing whatever gun i'm holding.
Its like the function of those triggers is working against each other, if that makes any sense.
It even becomes weirder, IMO.
I add it on steam as a non steam game.
Go into the settings menu, then controller settings and then mark the PS4 configuration help option.
Controller now functions.
Dont have this issue with other Ubisoft games, its just FC6.
To clarify, my PC thinks the controller is a XBOX360 controller.
Steam thinks, its a PS4 controller.
Ubisoft launcher thinks, its a XBOX controller.
Can play the game fine using steam, but thats not the way it should be.
Am I right or wrong?
Oh, should also mention that I've been playing the game on my PS4 with this controller without any issues...

Ubisoft support advices me to contact GeForce Now because the problem may come from NVIDIA
Seriously ??!?! ...this is the first time I bought a Ubisoft game with a problem like that.
Probably my last Ubi game
