The Besavior is a modified PlayStation 5 (PS5) DualSense controller from Beloader, that includes features such as configurable back buttons, programmable macros and input remapping. It is also available as a self assembly ‘DIY Kit’ option.
In this article, we will highlight an additional feature that allows you to make it ‘expandable’ and connect an additional alternative controller to it, to play PS5 games on your PS5 console. This may be useful if you are unable to use the DualSense controller to play and have a preferred alternative compatible controller or if you have an existing modified controller that you want to continue to use.
You connect your preferred controller to the Besavior via the included ‘on the go’ USB adapter which goes into the USB-C port on the back of the Besavior. When connected, your controller will communicate with the PS5 console via the Besavior.
Compatible controllers that can be connected include PS4’s DualShock 4 controller, Xbox One and Series controllers and the Nintendo Switch Pro controller. The Xbox Adaptive Controller (XAC) is not compatible. To find out how you could use the XAC on PS5, please see our alternative methods using our ‘PS5 Access‘ tag.
When a DualShock 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series or Nintendo Pro controller are connected to the Besavior, most of the inputs on the Besavior controller will stop functioning. Only the D-pad, Menu, Share, stick clicks, Touch Pad and Motion Controls will continue to work on the Besavior itself.
If using a connected DualShock 4, the Touch Pad and Sixaxis will not work on the DualShock 4. These inputs will need to be used on the Besavior when required, as when using Xbox One/Series or Nintendo Pro controllers.
Vibration continues to work though DualSense (Besavior), but not your connected controller.
If you use a headset, then a wireless one connected directly to your console, bypassing the controllers, is recommended.
At the time of publishing this article, this function of the Besavior is working for us. However, future device or console updates may alter this, so players must follow this method at their own risk.
