Every little helps, eh?

Ever since the PlayStation 4's announcement, the touchpad on the DualShock 4 has seemed like a bit of a gimmick. It's been employed, mostly, as a replacement for the select button since launch, but The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has a few more uses for the responsive rectangle that you may not be aware of.

Tapping it will, obviously, bring up the title's menu screen, allowing you to peruse the bestiary, track quests, and even view various gameplay stats. However, if you hold it down for a second or two, you'll be transported directly to your inventory page, allowing you to equip different bits of gear and see what you've got to trade.

Here's a top tip for you, though: slide your finger up while pushing the touchpad down and you'll be transported directly to the world map, cutting a couple of button presses out, and saving you precious time while you trace Yennefer's steps. Alright, it's hardly a game changer – but it's still a nifty little trick.

Update (17:30PM BST): As has been pointed out by many, you don't actually need to push the touchpad down while swiping up to access the map. A simple tickle will do the trick.
