Steam Controller Configuration for Rocket League

Steam Controller Configuration allows Rocket League inputs to be handled by Steam instead of by Rocket League. This allows players to remap in-game controls using Steam’s Big Picture mode. There should not be any difference in input functionality.

Please Note: You may see some strange behavior when following these steps. If that happens close Steam (Click Steam on the tab menu then select Exit) and attempt the steps again. If problems continue you may need to contact Steam Help for help troubleshooting.
