Controls for Code Vein are the input methods for the player to interact with the game. Since Code Vein is available on consoles and PC, there's the possibility to use Keyboard and Mouse, however it's advisable for players to consider a gamepad as the game was development with such in mind.

 Players can customize their controller scheme by using the in-game settings.
