Thank you so much everyone, it's helping us a lot!
Would you also mind telling us which model of controller you're using?
You can check on the back of your PS4 controller. The model is either CUH-ZTC1E or CUH-ZTC2E. If your controller happen to have a led on your touchpad, it means that your controller is a second version (CUH-ZTC2E).
Also, if any of you guys noticed that switching to a new controller helped them out, feel free to notify us and tell us which model series you used to make it work it might be linked to this issue.
@raibi One CUH-ZTC1E and two CUH-ZTC2E. The CUH-ZTC1E is the one where "flicking" R2 sometimes works. The CUH-ZTC1E also is really old, day-one Standard PS4, very first model where the rubber could come off the L/R sticks. Cable or Bluetooth doesn´t make a difference.
I just started the app with a CUH-ZTC1E connected by cable, made a new game in the 2nd slot using the default outfit and I avoided interacting with Lion. For whatever reason, it let me use the sling this time:
After this I switched back to my slot 1 game that was not working before, which had the pre order outfit, had interacted with Lion and was originally started up with a CUH-ZTC2E using Bluetooth. That worked fine this time too, so I'm not sure what's causing the problem.
Following @sc-reaper post, i deleted my savegame and started a new game with a CUH-ZTC2E connected via bluetooth. Didn´t change the outfit and, like i have done before, didn´t change any settings (e.g. aiming sensitivity), pet the dog and reached chapter IX without problems.
I won´t be using the CUH-ZCT1U in this game anymore.
Great game, keep up the good work
For what it´s worth, Days Gone has a similiar aiming and it works flawless with the CUH-ZCT1U
hi everyone, encountered the same problem. i play on ps4. after several tries it simply worked by switching to my second controller. now sadly i have no clue what serialnumbers the controllers have. on the backs there seems to be a place where stickertags could have been, they're missing at both, sorry. it's worth to mention that i did the switching ingame at the appletreelocation, ergo, i am guessing it has nothing to do with what you have done in the forest or your optionsettings.
Hello guys, I have the same problem but on PC, except that the ''shoot'' bind works but NOT when I release it. I have also posted about this issue on Steam, though I kinda feel like I'm the only one with this problem when it comes to playing with a keyboard. I'm currently downloading the game again, but I doubt it will help.
I had the same problem. I have 3 controllers, 2 from around 2014 and 1 from late 2018. I tried both the old ones and they did not work. The new one, however (that came with a ps4 pro) works perfectly. I made the switch at the apple tree where the problem was occurring.
Unfortunately none of these controllers have their serial numbers on but hope this helps nonetheless.
