I attempted to play a game of paintball today, but it was extremely tough to control using the on-screen virtual buttons. Sometimes I’d stop moving because my thumb would slide too far from the joystick zone. A lack of always-on microphone made it hard to communicate and coordinate since I could turn or shoot while also talking. I found myself talking without it actually transmitting many times because of that. Aiming in general was hard because of the control style. Maybe it was a lack of sensitivity or acceleration? It’s also not very easy to turn and shoot at the same time.

I’d never attempt rec royale on the phone with the current controls. Once iOS 13 is out with Bluetooth controller support, it might be less of a pain.
