Fans have discovered today that major changes have been made to Call of Duty Mobile Controller Support.
The new Android and iOS title only just launched, with a bumpy 24hrs seeing a lot of server problems.
Fans were prepared for this but might not have quite so ready for some other changes that have been made.
According to Activision, a new Call of Duty Mobile update has been released, which has changed some core settings.
And this reportedly includes COD Mobile Controller Support on Android and iOS devices.
Fans have been throwing questions at the Activision Support team on Twitter, who have finally provided an answer.
And it appears that Controller Support has now been removed from the game, following the game's launch earlier on October 1.
"Hello there, thank you for contacting Spec Ops support," The Activision Support team confirmed.
"Unfortunately, this is no longer supported after the most recent update. I would be more than happy to help."
No detailed has been given for the removal of this feature or if it might be a temporary measure.
Fans will be hoping for its return as it's become quite a favourite feature on other mobile games.
Those with a PS4 controller would have a pretty easy time linking it to their phone using BlueTooth.
But until we hear more on the subject, it's unclear if controllers will be back in play anytime soon.
The use of controller can provide players with an advantage over others, and this might be why the feature was removed.
If it is brought back, there is a good chance that Tencent and Activision will look to limit matchmaking.
This would make it possible for gamers with controllers to play against each other on a level playing field.
One user commented on today's news by pointing out: "Mobile gaming will never be taken seriously if they can't get this right.
"It's not comfortable to play hands only, and if you’re a big unit like me, with bear hands, too much of the screen is obscured, and carpal tunnel is going to kick in.

Another adds: "Completely agree, mobile games can be super fun but unfortunately the controls are clunky and awkward.
"I get a controller "defeats the purpose" however there's just some mobile games you want to play comfortably and some aren't even on big consoles or PC."
While today's roll out may have proved a bumpy ride for many fans, there is no reason to believe this won't improve in the weeks to come.
During a roundtable discussion with the dev team in July, they were also asked whether a release on the Nintendo Switch would be a possibility in the future.
And it's easy to see why, providing Activision with a way to get a COD game onto the popular handheld console without downgrading the likes of Modern Warfare.
"Right now, we are completely focused on the mobile side," Chris Plummer, VP of mobile for Activision, told the table.
"I mean like Android and iOS, and making sure that's the best possible experience that you can pull out of your pocket and play whenever you want.
"I mean, we would consider anything, I guess, but right now our priority and sole focus is iOS and Android."
So while it sounds like a Nintendo Switch port is unlikely in 2019, plenty of dev support is in place for the current version of the game.
