The controller itself feels like a pretty good Xbox One/Xbox Series S/X accessory, with all the right buttons in the right places. They actually feel good when it comes to presses; and even the triggers are very reactionary, right down to firing and getting something set in place, like aiming. The analog sticks are excellent, and the D-Pad, while hardly award-winning, doesn’t really annoy either. It’s balanced just about right. Plus the rumble is outstanding, with everything reacting the way it should from bullets to body slams.
You can also toggle the macro buttons on the back of the controller grips with extra functionality, and even try out Pro-Aim, a cool setting that lets you adjust the right analog stick dramatically across four different functions. Again, it’s fine-tuned with experts in mind, so if that’s not your thing, you can stick with default settings and you should be just fine.
I also really liked the rubber-coated grips on the controller, so that it’s comfortable to hold compared to other, cheaper models. The shoulder buttons are also nicely adjusted, with little dots that keep them from wearing out quickly – a big problem as you might have seen on other, (and again) cheaper units.
