Remap Buttons On PS4 Controller: While the DualShock 4 Back Button Attachment is meant to be a simple add-on. However, you’ll get the most out of it by understanding how to remap buttons and set various profiles. While it’s not too difficult. Navigating the OLED interface for the first time can be a little difficult. Here’s how to remap buttons on the DualShock 4 Back Button Attachment.

However, you can only have two various buttons selected at a time. The Back Button Attachment is a the best way to have easy access to an action you’ll be performing repeatedly in a game. Whether it’s reloading in a shooter or just pulling up your equipment in an RPG without using your thumb.

Step 1:

Remember the Back Button Attachment is already plugged into your DualShock 4.

Step 2:

If it isn’t, then power down your controller.

Step 3:

Now, again plug in the Back Button Attachment.

Step 4:

Remember your controller is turned on.

Step 5:

Tap the center of the OLED screen on the attachment.

Step 6:

Now hold down in the middle of the screen until the profile symbol begins flashing.

Step 7:

Now, Hit the back buttons to cycle through the various options.

Step 8:

When you’re happy about your selection, hit the center of the screen to end.

Remember that while you are programming and the profile symbol is flashing, it will switch off after 10 seconds of inactivity. However, if you aren’t programming, it’ll turn off after 3 seconds of inactivity.

How to Save Different Profiles

You don’t want to just keep remapping buttons while playing. However, as the DualShock 4 Back Button Attachment can save up to three various profiles. Each profile with a unique setup of buttons. This way, you can keep a unique setup for up to 3 different games.

Step 1:

Firstly, Hit down on the center of the OLED screen.

Step 2:

Once the profile symbol is flashing, instantly press twice to choose the next profile.

Step 3:

For the next profile, choose twice again.

Step 4:

Repeat this process and map your various buttons. Doing this until all three profiles are customized.

Once you’ve got your different profiles set up and the buttons are all mapped. Then you can take your enjoyment of games to another level. Certainly, using your thumb to press several different buttons can be tricky, or even difficult if, like me, you have large hands and are trying to choose Options. This attachment can help make things quite easier.
