Helps get the original experience and may help you find a control scheme that works better than MCC default controls.
Original Default Controls
(Find these options in Settings > Controls > Configure Gamepad > Button Layout)
Halo: Reach – Default (The layout name is “Default”)
Halo: CE – The Duke
Halo 2 – Default (The layout name is “Default”)
Halo 3 – Default or Universal Default (Recon) (They’re almost exactly the same, Universal just also allows you to switch grenades with the D-pad as well)
Halo 3 ODST – Default or Universal Default (Recon) (Same as Halo 3)
Halo 4 – Default or Universal Reclaimer (as far as I can tell they are the exactly the same)
Bonus Tip: In the settings, also try setting Gameplay > Crosshair Position to “Lowered” to get a more classic feel!
(*Also for Halo: CE and Halo 2, those were the controls you got when you played on Xbox 360, as most controllers don’t have the Black/White buttons that the original Xbox controller had)
