The Open Beta of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is out and one of the issues players are facing is the console support.
Some players logged into the game and had error messages coming from the console not detected or the buttons not working as they should.
This issue is specific to the Steam version of the game on the Xbox console but this fix can work fine for any other type of console that you want to use on your PC.
In this guide, we will help you to solve the console not detected or not working properly in the latest version of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2.
This can also work with console-supported Steam games that are in your Steam library.
Guide on How to Fix Console Not Working / Detected in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2
To fix this problem, head over to your Steam Game library and search for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Open Beta Launcher or the full version of the game if you are facing the same issues when the game is officially launched.
Access to game properties
Hover over the game icon and right-click on it. This will take you to a smaller tab where you need to click on properties to access the console option.
Disable steam input
Once you have selected the console settings, set the console to disable steam input. Doing so will disable the default key mapping for the game set by Steam and will allow you to access the game without the Steam key mapping settings.
From here, the game should work fine with your favorite console. When the game has finished its beta phase to the full version, toggling the console settings should work again to enable Steam input for you and this workaround is also for other games where you are having problems with the console in your Steam library.
