Will Using Keyboard And Mouse Give Me An Advantage?

In certain games, you may get an advantage over controller players however most games will put you in lobbies with other keyboard and mouse players. For example, in Call of Duty Warzone if you were playing against controller players you may get the upper hand. However, in Warzone you will get put into lobbies with other Keyboard and Mouse players.

If you are playing on a console I would simply recommend sticking with the native controller or using a custom controller with extra buttons for the best gameplay experience.
