Controller not working Apex Legends PC(Steam)

★★ Novice

I am having an issue using Xbox One controller on Apex Legends for PC(Steam Version). Can use left joystick to move around the menu and press A to select things, but once in game nothing works other than opening up inventory. Once the inventory is open I can see the circular controller cursor moving around, but cant do anything else. I have restarted my computer and made sure drivers are up to date. Controller works fine for other games. The UI never changes from showing the PC keybindings.

@I_Am_Your_Fears make sure you don't have -nojoy in your launch options/autoexec file. Removing it fixed it for me (copied it over mindlessly from a "best performance settings" youtube video.)

i found a fix its really simple

 

all you need to do is delete steam and reinstall, watch this video though so you don't lose any of your data etc and know what you're doing beforehand https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHKGSOQfiHM
