Play Wild Rift with a controller, it's possible! Our tips

play Wild Rift with the controller

League of Legends has arrived on mobile with LoL: Wild Rift! The game has already gained a very special following as it is so popular on PC. The gameplay is rather well optimised on touch and allows to discover this famous MOBA in a very pleasant way. But playing on a touch screen has its limits and many players are not particularly fond of it. So, if this is your case, have you considered playing Wild Rift with a controller? Let's find out right now how it's possible. We'll explain! 🎮 ⤵️

How do I play Wild Rift with a controller?

So the first thing you need to know is that Wild Rift is not directly compatible with controllers. In any case, at the time of writing, it is not possible to play it with a controller directly from your phone. ("What, but what do you mean, she just told us it's possible...!") 🤔

So, it is possible to play the mobile version of League of Legends with a controller, but not in the traditional way. I mean, unlike games that would be developed to directly support a controller (like COD Mobile, Fortnite or Minecraft), Wild Rift doesn't allow this possibility yet. ("Well then, is touch only possible?")

Well, although the touch controls have been designed and optimized to make Wild Rift gameplay easier, it's also possible to play with a controller. So you can enjoy a great gaming experience while playing on your PC!Download LoL: Wild Rift on PC

To do this, you will have to leave your phone behind and choose to play Wild Rift on your PC! Simply install an Android emulator that will simulate your phone's environment on your computer screen.

With this free software, you can play any of your mobile games with the controller. So, of course, not all games are suitable for it, but for Wild Rift, it's the best. 👌

The advantages of the emulator are multiple:

  • You play on the big screen
  • You can choose the keyboard and mouse or your controller
  • Synchronise your accounts: at any time, you can go back to your smartphone to play
  • If you don't have enough memory on your phone, or if your phone isn't powerful enough to run Wild Rift, you can still play this great game.

Playing Wild Rift with the controller: better than with the keyboard!

In addition to being able to play with your controller, if you decide to play with your keyboard and mouse, it is possible. So, in order to be as complete as possible with the information we provide, we have tested both possibilities.

Our preference is for the controller. Of course, it depends on your own playing habits and preferences. So we advise you to test both options and make your choice.

Our test was carried out with the Xbox X series controller (the latest one) that we presented in our advice article on the best gaming accessories.

Result: We found that the controller is more comfortable and makes the game experience more enjoyable. This is especially true for movement (a very important criterion in a MOBA). Indeed, with the basic keyboard and mouse settings, to move, you have to stay on the right click. This is quite constraining to cast/click on spells quickly. It is possible to modify a lot of controls with an advanced setting directly in the emulator (but it is a bit headache).

By the way, don't hesitate to tell us in the comments if you prefer to play with a keyboard and mouse or if you prefer the controller, or even the mobile touch version! 😉
