Nioh 2 The Complete Edition Recommended Keyboard & Mouse Settings

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

These are the adjusted settings from the first game I’ve been using.

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.
