I’ve been gaming for quite awhile and am very competitive in nature, so naturally I’m always looking for ways to enhance my competitive game play. I mostly play first person shooters and even more specific, I have invested much of my time into the Call of Duty franchise. With that said, the first step into gaining a competitive edge is to invest into a good controller. I did some research and noticed that most of the professional gamers are using custom controllers built by Scuf Gaming. The two main reasons I was drawn to the Scuf One was the fact that they have incorporated “paddles” onto the controller and that they also have adjustable triggers.
The paddles were an immediate hit in my mind as I was constantly taking my thumb off of my aiming thumb stick in order to jump or go prone in Call of Duty. By keeping my aim while being able to jump simultaneously meant that I never had to lose my target to jump or go prone. Much better response time and more accurate aiming.
I also raised an eyebrow when I saw that you can adjust the triggers so that you no longer had to press them all the way in to aim or to fire a weapon. Again, a much faster reaction time and a lower latency in firing is instantly achieved.
Below are pictures of my custom Scuf One that I created for online FPS gaming:
