While I’ve always been a big fan of first person shooters or FPS as most people call it, I’ve only recently committed to playing them often and getting better at them. One of the things I’ve seen in stores and have heard about from friends are analog stick grips that extend the sticks and help give better control and accuracy. I can now confirm that they do indeed help with both after using KontrolFreek’s FPS Freek Call of Duty S.C.A.R. grips which take a little getting used to at first, but once you do, you won’t know how you got this far without them.
After the new Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare game was announced, it only made sense for companies to get to work on making accessories either based on it and for the title itself. The first of these official products are concave, solid analog stick extenders that just happen to be both, as they’re based on the game and can be used not only with it, but for any shooter game you play. A perfect example is how these have helped me with my gameplay on Destiny and The Division, both which have become a lot more fun thanks to the enhanced feel and grip of my controller these bring.
The grips snap onto controller easily and add 10.4mm of height to your existing thumbsticks and help increase their range of motion by up to 136% according to the info that came with them. All I know is that they really do make a difference as the controller feels more solid in your hands which leads to being able to move and aim better as you play. While these grips take a little getting used to and do well right out of the box, I’ve learned that if you turn your camera and aim sensitivity to a high level in your game’s settings, this greatly enhances the help these grips give that grants nearly PC mouse accuracy, something that hardcore FPS fans will surely love.
If you’re looking to enhance your shooter game experience, you can’t go wrong with KontrolFreek’s FPS Freek Call of Duty S.C.A.R. grips. Available for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, they have a nice, solid feel which also makes your controller feel the same, leading to better movement control and aiming in your favorite shooter. Be sure to look for these at your local store or on their website, and get ready to say goodbye to average controls and hello to more head shots.
