Just when I thought that FPS games are best played on the PC, I was blown away when I saw that there are a lot of gamers who play FPS games on the game consoles.
I thought by using a gaming mouse and keyboard in that you will have the competitive edge in FPS games, but given the right controller, game console owners can also edge out the competition as well.
It is no surprise to anyone that FPS games on the game console require thumbsticks for their movements. May it be to control your character to move forward, sideward, or back, thumbsticks are an integral part of game console FPS gamers.
As useful as they may be, there is one common problem with conventional thumbsticks: the rubber coating rubs off with time.
If you frequently play on game consoles, especially when playing FPS games, there is a high probability that your thumbsticks’ coating will wear off quickly.
That is just normal as game console manufacturers rarely look at the durability of the thumbsticks anyway.
So, if you’re an FPS gamer and you frequently play on game consoles, how do you remedy the rubber wear and tear of the controller’s thumbsticks?
Well, there is a company called “KontrolFreek” that specializes in thumbsticks and different kinds of grips for game console controllers.
Today, I will talk about their newest offering called the KontrolFreek SCAR Thumbsticks. The KontrolFreek SCAR Thumbsticks is inspired by the upcoming first-person shooter, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
The KontrolFreek SCAR Thumbsticks come in Gray and Dark Blue colors and they look absolutely great.
The thumbsticks replace the flimsy rubber coating of the original thumbsticks and it slaps on fine without unscrewing the thumbsticks off the original game controller.
Basically, this is just an add-on to your thumbsticks and it reinforces the feel and grip of the original ones.
Now, the KontrolFreek SCAR Thumbsticks stood the test of time as the company reports that even after 6 months of use (8 hours a day of gaming), the thumbsticks are still in pretty good shape with just minimal tearing.
Couple that with the fact that the SCAR thumbsticks come with a cool art that showcases the new Infinite Warfare emblem.
As of now, the KontrolFreek SCAR Thumbsticks is a limited edition thumbsticks’ coating replacement. It might not be on sale after this year, so if you want one of these, you better get them while you can.
What I love about the KontrolFreek SCAR Thumbsticks is that it not only supports the original Dualshock 4 and Xbox One controllers but it also supports controllers from third-party manufacturers as well.
That is because the thumbsticks are of uniform design and build, making the KontrolFreek SCAR Thumbsticks fit just about any other controller out there on the market.
I recommend getting the KontrolFreek SCAR Thumbsticks if you want to further enhance the thumbsticks of your game controllers.
