Save $ 20 on the Xbox Elite Series 2 Controller
What makes it so good? For starters, it has a wraparound rubberized grip that makes it easier and more comfortable to hold than virtually any other controller on the market. The battery lasts up to 40 hours of playtime on a single charge and comes with a carrying case, charging dock, and USB-C cable.
It’s also highly customizable, much more than a standard Xbox One or Series X controller. You can adjust the tension of the analog sticks to your preference, which can help improve your aim in shooters. The controller trigger locks are also useful for shooters. When activated, these can give you an advantage during a firefight, as your shot will register faster.
You can also replace a number of controller components. It comes with a set of six controllers that let you choose between classic, tall, and wide designs, each offering unique benefits for certain types of gamers. You can choose between a standard D-pad or the faceted one that Microsoft uses on Series X | S. Finally, you get four paddles which are on the back of the controller and can be mapped to any button for easy access.
The Xbox Elite Series 2 Controller isn’t for everyone. But if you’re trying to maximize your competitive edge, it gives you plenty of customizable ways to do it.
