I bought the game on steam and researched and found out that you could use a controller. I am using big picture mode connected to my tv. I figured Hawken sounded really cool, and considering that it is similiar to fps controls it would work really well with a controller.

it doesn't work well at all. I cant jump or hover, I cant even access the game with a controller because it constantly has prompts that require only a keyboard to get past- like the start when it makes you sign in- it wont auto login, and the controller wont work to sign in. Hawken seems to be a mojor bust. 29.99 down the drain :(

wait till the steam controller is out and buy that.
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

The Steam controller is a piece of s***. Dat button placement.

A friend of mine tried it at CES '14 and said it felt very awkward.

I just asked steam support for a refund.
i doubt ill get it since i am the idiot, but i have never asked for a refund before and i heard that steam sometimes will give people one without arguing.

I booted my copy up and did a match before this, to make sure I knew where I stood.

I've been playing the game on and off since a while back, well before it came to Steam, and I've never had a problem using my Wired 360 Controller. There ARE some elements of some of the menus that I need to use the mouse, but I can jump/hover and all of that no problem.

Keep playing around with the controls in the options menu, best I can say. Maybe it didn't preset some of the obvious stuff, like the jump, maybe?
To the mattresses.

You're trying to play an online shooter on PC with a controller.

Even if it worked you'd get slaughtered by lesser skilled players using KB+M

Probably not in Hawken. It's pretty slow paced and turn speed is capped, you can't flick shoot.

Valve's redesigning the controller.

Your friends a baby. After a few hours use, you would get used to the controller.
