Scuf controller vs Strikepack

Date: Monday 06 May, 2019

Advantages of a Scuf controller

The most important aspect of a scuf controller are the paddles at the back of the controller. This enables you to use the fingers (like the middle finger) that you are not using to push hard to reach buttons.

Why does this matter?

This is simple: in FPS games you have to keep your thumbs on the analogue sticks to aim and to move. This means you'll have to take your thumb of your stick in order to press a button, which in turn messes up your aim. You obviously don't want that. Putting paddles on the back solves this problem and will have you doing drop shots in no time.

Additionally Scuf controllers are accepted in all major tournaments. So if you have serious ambitions on the gaming world, then Scuf is the way to go.

Why are they so expensive?

A Scuf controller is a modeified version of the original PS4 controller. This means Scuf buys regular controllers and transforms them into a Scuf controller by hand. All of this is done in the UK or the US, so you are simply paying for the labour cost of disassembling and assembling a controller.

Can't it be cheaper?

That's what the guys of Collective Minds were thinking. That's why they designed the Collective Minds Strike Pack PS4 . This is an add-on for your current PS4 controller that you simply click on.

What is the best solution?

It all depends on what you want and how serious you are when it comes to gaming. Let's take a look at the pros and cons of both solutions.

  • no lag-time (build into the controller)
  • choice between 2 or 4 paddles
