Far Cry New Dawn Xbox One controls
The basic controls for Far Cry New Dawn on the Xbox One are split into three primary groups: ground controls, driving controls, and flight controls. Many of the button commands are similar between all three schemes: the Menu button will always open the Pause menu, and the View button will always bring up the Game menu. For convenience, we've sorted the controls first by the button used, then by its function given the control group.

All things considered, there aren't too many surprises among the Far Cry New Dawn controls. Aiming and firing are still relegated to the shoulder buttons, while D-pad directions largely correspond to miscellaneous commands. As might be expected, clicking the left analog stick still causes the character to sprint, while a click of the right analog stick performs a melee attack. The rest of the controls should seem about standard for Far Cry fans or gamers with a penchant for console shooters.
With the basic buttons and controls in Far Cry New Dawn for the Xbox One out of the way, players should have no trouble working through one of Ubisoft's most colorful post-apocalyptic releases to date.
