In Fallout: New Vegas on PC, you can set a quick weapon access keys by pressing a keyboard shortcut (1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8), and clicking a weapon in the menu. The keys are replaced by directions on the direction pad when playing with a controller.
I am playing with a 360 controller, the keyboard commands are disabled. It is therefore tedious to modify the quick weapon access keys, since I have to disable my controller in the controls menu each time I want to do it.

Is there a less tedious method to set the quick weapon access keys when playing with a controller?

    I assume setting the hotkeys using the controller itself doesn't work for some reason? Nov 6, 2013 at 17:09
  • I found that it works when you keep RightTrigger pressed and then press one of the directions on the pad. Your comment helped me!

    @wil You can answer your own questions here. You should probably post your comment (and mention Studoku's comment) as an answer. Nov 21, 2013 at 8:13
  • @galacticninja Sure, and done.

As @Studoku suggested, it is possible to set the hotkey using the controller.
You have to keep the Right Trigger pressed, and then press one of the directions on the directional pad.
