Nioh 2 - Recommended Keyboard & Mouse Settings

Written by _Oin_   /   Feb 6, 2021    


A decent base Keyboard & Mouse settings for more comfortable play. Adjust as you see fit.

Keyboard & Mouse Settings



For me, the game is perfectly fine on Keyboard & Mouse so these might also work for you.

I recommend configuring the Menus section first so it's easier to navigate and then changing the rest.

Known Issues



Assigning Mouse Button 2 (the other button under the thumb) is breaking keyboard controls. Doing so prevents the Interact key and many others from working. Remember this if you're customizing controls.
