However, DualSense adaptive triggers could be the answer to that issue.

Bethesda's Pete Hines Has Tried the DualSense, Was 'Very Impressed'

Yesterday, Sony casually dropped the reveal of the new PS5 controller, called the DualSense. The last 24 hours have been a flurry of reactions, memes, community custom designs, and analyses of the DualSense, which is quite a large departure from this generation’s DualShock 4. Of course, the proof is in the pudding, and the only way to truly get a sense (heh) for the new controller is to go hands-on with it. Bethesda’s Pete Hines has done just that, tweeting out that he was “very impressed.”
