Smart controls for War Robots on BlueStacks 4

How will this help?

Now that your Robots are smarter, brace yourself for a new era of war. With smart controls for War Robots, you will notice a dramatic improvement in your gameplay. Smart controls will allow for easier navigation in-game with a more immersive experience.

NOTE: Smart Controls for War Robots are only available in BlueStacks version 4.200 and above, so if you have not yet updated please click here to download the latest version.

What has changed with Smart Controls?

Before, you had to press F1 to lock/unlock mouse cursor in-game to access various menus and to shoot after entering a match. This would also have to be done at the end of a match, to give you control over accessing various menus.

Now, instead of pressing F1 every time you want to access menus, Bluestacks will automatically detect when you are in a Menu screen or when you are in a battle to save you from having to press F1. This allows for easier navigation and combat resulting in a more fluid gameplay experience.

In addition to this, we have also fixed a DPAD misalignment issue, i.e your DPAD would not enable your robot to move, that some of you were facing while in-game. 

How can I enable Smart Controls?

Smart controls for War Robots will be enabled by default. You will not have to enable them manually. 

Since every gamer has a unique playstyle, you can edit the key controls to better accustom your gameplay to your taste. To view/edit the controls, simply follow the steps below.
