Step 2- Head over to “Settings” on the PS5 and scroll down to select “System“. Under “System Software,” click on “Reset Options” and choose “Restore Default Settings“.

Step 3- Enter the default PIN, i.e. “0000”, or the PIN that you might have set. Once the process is complete, your controller settings will also be reset.

Step 4- Again in the “Settings” menu, scroll down to select “Accessories“. Under “Controllers“, click on “Vibration Intensity” and choose the one that suits you the most in-game. Do the same with the “Trigger Effect Intensity” option below it. We recommend setting both to “Strong (Standard)“.
