Deadzone really?

Is this a console game or smthing? Why is there a deadzone it fucks my aiming.

If you allow steam to take over controller configuration and you find your ways through the arcane depths of its many configuration screens, you can probably set it up as you like, however it'll require some effort. I've disabled this in steam because I found default gamepad setups in games work better most of the time.

And yes, this is going to be released on consoles.
