Assists can help you massively when using a controller and here are the ones we recommend you to use:

After trying out different setups, here’s the best PC2 controller layout that has been working for us:

  • Throttle = LT
  • Brake/Reverse = RT
  • Steer left = Left stick
  • Steer right = Right stick

As you can see, the LT-RT triggers are used for acceleration and braking while the left and right sticks are for steering.

This is by far the most comfortable and effective way to control your car in Project Cars 2 using a controller.

If you don’t have either of those, then using a PlayStation 4 controller for racing on PS4 will be totally fine.


So here were our recommended settings and tips to get the best out of your Project Cars 2 controller experience.

We hope you found this guide helpful and that you’ll be able to take your racing to the next level with these settings.
