These are the current controller schemes for Dead Island*. It is unknown if the game will feature a way to change the control scheme or if the player will be able to re-map their controls. The analog control scheme allows the player to decide which way the swing is directed. Hold down the Aim/Throw button to ready weapon and use the look stick or the mouse to swing the weapon in the direction that the player wishes.
- *May or may not be all of the controls
