Remappable Triggers for the Xbox One Controller

Allow us to switch the functions of the triggers on Xbox one's new controller remapping app. It only makes sense that it should be there.

    We should be able to remap the triggers I was playing rainbow 6 siege and I heard a geat tip where if you remap the triggers to the bumpers, you can get a much quicker shooting speed. But once I went to the accessories app I was baffled that the triggers werent even mappable. They had left stick click and right stick click but not the trigger??? I don't know why they won't do this. Play Station has it and I think that is a reason why a lot of people like PS4. Plz fix Microsoft, this is truly irritating.

    It is truly irritating that the left bumpers and tttiggers can't be switched or remapped. In rainbow six it is essential to get the first *** off and using the left bumper is the quickest way. But I was surprised to find you couldn't do that . You could even switch the left stick click and the right click but no triggers at all. Plz fix this

    I'm a c6 c7 quadriplegic and have limited movement of my fingers Therefore shooting and aiming with the triggers is extremely difficult. I'm happy I can change controller schemes to aim/shoot to lb and rb then map it, but I'm still left out on many games. Please fix this Microsoft!!!

    I want to swap RB with RT and then LB with LT. is it possible on a regular Xbox one wireless controller?

    Every button, bumper, D-pad, and stick can be remapped but not the triggers. Either the devs of the remapping application are really dumb or they are lazy enough or stupid enough to overlook the simple, essential, and very standard feature of remapping one of the most important parts of a controller.

    AJ here, disabled game developer focused on inclusive design and AbleGamers' Fellow. I was revisiting my favorite Xbox 360 game tonight, Gears of War 2, and was having the same difficulty of aiming and shooting that I had all of the years I originally played the game. Since I play games with my feet, my toes are quite short, therefore making triggers hard to press. Playing on Xbox One, I figured I could finally play the game proper by remapping both trigger inputs to the bumpers. Unfortunately, when attempting to remap the trigger inputs, I was surprised to learn that remapping triggers to buttons is impossible.

    Going through the button mapping screen extensively, I concluded that triggers are indeed not being remappable. All of the other buttons, even L3/R3, can be mapped to any other button within Remapping. There is a Swap Triggers setting but it simply switches the LT and RT functions. Additionally, on a competing platform, triggers can be remapped to any button.

    I would love to have a conversation on making triggers remappable on Xbox One. I'm aware of a few problems to why triggers are not remappable but in response, I have potential solutions. As AbleGamers' Fellow and someone that doesn't have anything going on at the moment, I would be honored to help Xbox achieve full remapping on their platform.
