For some stupid reason, when I picked up FPS games a couple years back, I used inverted y axis. I got pretty good with it, but I can never switch.
With a mouse, I don't have that issue, and can actually move the cursor to the target, as opposed to doing some weird reverse calculus on two axis.
Great for CoD, Destiny (get the user designed ballistics curves for Destiny), overwatch.
I recommend getting a good mouse (I am partial to the Logitech g502 because it has tunable weighting and lots of buttons that I map to controller functions) and a Playstation move navigation controller, so you can use the left stick, L2, and L1.
NOTE! you NEED access to a Windows PC to set this up, at least for the first time. Check the website, this may have changed
The setup was a little cumbersome, but not difficult. You have to read the instructions, connect this to that, wait for the LED confirmation, then connect something else, etc. Once you have it set up, you can save a profile within the app (I'm on Android) and it'll show a certain color LED to visually confirm what profile you're using. It resulted in a lot of cables to keep strewn across the living room, so I didn't leave it set up all the time, and that meant that I always had to make sure to plug in the cables and turn everything on in the correct order every time, which was kind of a pain.
The Android app is perfectly functional but not especially pleasant to use. Setting up the bindings worked fine, but it ended up being kind of a problem that the PS4 had no awareness of the keyboard bindings (obviously). I'd be thrown into some in-game situation where I had to press R2 in a hurry, and then I'd say "crap! Which key is R2 again?" For common actions this wasn't a problem, but the long tail of weird inputs in a campaign was a problem for me over and over.
I also had a huge problem setting up the look sensitivity and acceleration for the mouse, and I had to screw with it for a long time before I could make it behave (mostly) the way I wanted it to. There were sensitivity settings on my mouse, on the XIM4 app settings (twice, if I'm remembering correctly), and within the game itself, and they didn't always interact how you'd expect. This was probably the biggest issue I faced, and I never did get it quite to a place that worked as well as playing an FPS on a PC. The Old Blood made me a little motion sick, though, so I sort of unintentionally stopped playing it after a while. Maybe if I'd continued I would have been able to get the look settings to a place I was happy with.
Finally, note that XIM4 doesn't just work for every game right out of the box. Someone has to write custom settings for each new game, so you're SOL if nobody has written one yet for the game you want to play. I got this around the time that the Uncharted collection came out last year, but that wasn't in the XIM4 yet and so I had to use a controller to play it. Also, The Old Blood had been out for a long time when I got the XIM4, but it didn't have XIM4 settings either. I had to choose the settings for one of the other recent Wolfenstein games, and that seemed to mostly work okay, but it's good to be aware of.
Connecting it with the games I play FPS on PS4 was incredibly simple with the tutorials they have on the Xim4 website. After downloading the app I realized that it would actually be easier to customize from my second computer monitor while using my primary with my PS4.
Both the app and the computer program to tweak your settings work quite flawlessly. So blah blah blah, how does it perform..?
The movement is insanely 1:1. It is truly beyond what I expected for a simulated input. They have perfected this tool to do exactly what you will want if you are either: like me, a controller gamer wanting to play keyboard and mouse on a console, or a PC player looking to get into your comfort zone on a console., you will love this thing. It's great and not a negative thing to say about it. To say it takes some getting used to is a given, but once you put a few hours on it and get warmed up to have it feel natural it will improve your game. No doubt about it moving the mouse to pinpoint accuracy in a FPS is an advantage, and this gives it well.
This unit is a perfect solution and it's great. It does take some work to get it running and tuned and the instructions can be misleading. So it can be frustrating until you get is all worked out. They have a terrific online message board where you can get very fast assistance and that was crucial to get mine configured.
I think it may be a bit more expensvie than it ought to be, but I'm still pleased that I bought it. Recommended.
