Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - The Definitive Edition

PS4/PS5 Controls

By
Jarrod Garripoli

Here are the controls for the Playstation 4/5 versions of the game. Note that you have the option to switch the control scheme by going into Options -> Adjust Control Layout -> Control Scheme. Modern and Modern Alt are largely the same, except it swaps the looking left/right buttons with the fire weapon and handbrake in vehicles. Classic simply makes the controls the same as they were on the PS2 version of the game.

BMX

The controls for the BMX bike are pretty much standard across all three control types. The only changes to them involve looking behind CJ. This is done with the R3 Button on Modern and Modern Alt, while with Classic, you have to hold both L2 and R2.
