TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR TRIGGERS:
IMPROVE ACCURACY & REDUCE LATENCY TO WIN MORE WITH SCUF’S TRIGGER & STOP MECHANISM


PRESS RELEASE: April 23, 2015 – Today SCUF releases the second of six segments on SCUFOLOGY - Adjustable Hair Trigger & Stop Mechanism + Trigger Extenders; providing improved accuracy and reduced trigger latency when using the gun.

After inventing and patenting the Adjustable Hair Trigger and Stop Mechanism for gaming controllers 4 years ago, SCUF have significantly improved gaming performance. With the objective of reducing trigger and hand movement, SCUF invented these features. 1.) Adjustable Hair Trigger can be self adjusted using a SCUF Key to reduce the trigger swing before the trigger is pulled. 2.) Trigger Stop Mechanism minimizes the distance the trigger has to travel before springing back to a neutral position on the controller. The Trigger Stop Mechanism is most beneficial when using guns in shooter games offering a noticeably faster reaction time, which is crucial during gunfights.

Duncan Ironmonger, CEO & Co-Founder of Scuf Gaming, says, “Our vision was to create features and functions that would become an integral part of controllers for elite gamers. Our patented Adjustable Trigger & Trigger Stop Mechanism has changed the way gamers play shooters; making them more competitive by improving their accuracy and allowing gamers to get more shots off during gameplay. We innovate to create competition legal features endorsed by professional gaming leagues to offer the best competitive gaming experience.”

Dillon ‘Attach’ Price, Denial eSports (2015 Call of Duty® Champions) says, “Trigger stops are one of the most important, if not the most important, part of the controller. Being able to shoot as fast as possible is a huge factor and can decide whether you win or lose a game.”

SCUF FPS Adjustable Trigger & Pro Grip - Home Combo Kit

Scuf Gaming wanted gamers to benefit from our technology so; gamers with any budget can now afford the SCUF Trigger and Grip features. The trigger grips are adjustable using a SCUF Key, allowing the gamer to externally tune their triggers to their desired distance, based on the game type; adjusting the sensitivity and height of the triggers so the gamer knows exactly when a weapon will fire. The SCUF FPS Adjustable Trigger Grips are self-fitted and easy to swap out with SCUF’s Pro Grip handles. The Pro Grip handles are great for gamers who may wish to change to racing or sports games, where a full range of trigger motion may be required. SCUF FPS Adjustable Trigger & Pro Grip Combo Kits are SCUF ONE and Xbox One compatible and available for purchase at $24.95 on scufgaming.com and select e-tailers/retailers.

SCUF 4PS FANGS – Self-Fitted Trigger Extenders for PlayStation 4

SCUF 4PS Trigger Extenders were designed to lengthen the trigger, which helps improve trigger sensitivity and accuracy! They’re great for all hand sizes; especially for larger hands as they extend the parameters of a stock PlayStation 4 controller. The trigger extenders clip easily on and off any SCUF 4PS or PS4 controller and they also have grip and grooves for your fingers, providing additional comfort and grip. SCUF 4PS FANGS Trigger Extenders are available for purchase at $9.95 on scufgaming.com and select e-tailers/retailers.

Hand Safety, Increased Dexterity & Improved Gameplay + Don’t Forget EMR!

why paddles paddle

 

 

 

 

PRESS RELEASE: March 26, 2015 – Today SCUF releases the first of six segments on SCUFOLOGY - Why Paddles Make You A Better Gamer – showcasing how SCUF paddles provide hand safety, increased dexterity and improved gameplay + SCUF’s innovative EMR technology!

Since inventing and patenting the paddle control system over 4 years ago, Scuf Gaming has progressively innovated and redefined the way gamers use their controller in a more natural and intuitive way.  Over the past 4 years, paddle play has become the defining factor for elite gamers where over 90% of the world’s top pro gamers trust SCUF when competing in First Person Shooter games. SCUF paddles are widely recognized to improve a gamer’s performance by increasing hand use and control during gameplay. The paddles offer improved hand movement when executing more advanced moves in game by providing increased dexterity for the gamer.

Duncan Ironmonger, CEO & Co-Founder of Scuf Gaming, says, “Since inventing the Paddle Control System over 4 years ago, our vision was to have SCUF features and functions become an essential and integral part of controllers for Elite Gamers.  The 6 areas of additional functionality we have added to a normal controller have now become de-facto for Professional and Hardcore gamers.  Like golf, one size does not fit all at the top level and we have addressed this through the work we have done. We have created a new market space for Customized Hardcore Controllers and we did it all from true grass routes. We invested dozens of man-years and millions of dollars to create and educate in this space and we are delighted to be where we are today knowing so many people rely on SCUF and love what we do.”

With SCUF controllers, gamers have the option to choose either 2 or 4 paddles based on their preferred configuration. Couple this with any or all of the other 5 features and it’s easy to see why SCUF makes the best gamers even better.  By adding the EMR (Electro Magnetic Remapping) option to your SCUF, it allows the user to remap the back paddles to any face buttons of the controller. By using the SCUF EMR key (high powered magnet) you are able to activate an internal SCUF switch in the controller, which allows you to assign any face button to the paddles at the back of the controller.  This remapping functionality is an optional add on to SCUF controllers and is great for gamers who play multiple games and those who may want the back paddles to be different face buttons for different games and gameplay.

Ironmonger addresses more of the innovation and investment SCUF has made through the 28+ filed and granted patents. “A reality of innovating and creating a new market space is the need to protect your innovation and investment.  We realized very early in our cycle that we would need to protect 3 key areas of a controller; back control functions and handles, trigger control mechanisms and thumbstick control area. We have been granted several patents that protect these areas and have several more that we expect to be approved soon. The beautiful and unique thing about SCUF paddles is they enable elite and casual gamers with any size hand the ability to access more actions.  Through the use of the underside of the controller, gamers are able to keep their thumbs on the thumbsticks while accessing face buttons for moves like SCUF JUMP (now a famously coined gaming phrase)."

SCUF is the official controller partner for top professional gaming leagues such as MLG, ESL, Gfinity, EGL and UMG and has become the controller of choice for the world’s most successful professional gamers. In fact, 17 of the top teams globally (NA, EU & Australia) competing for the Call of Duty® Million Dollar Tournament in Los Angeles, Mach 27-29, are SCUF sponsored teams and users of SCUF controllers.

“With the addition of Scuf Gaming’s paddles, I’ve taken my game to a whole new level!  I trust SCUF because I’m a better gamer when I use SCUF,” says Optic Gaming’s Ian “Crimsix” Porter – 2015 North America Call of Duty® Finalist & 2014 Call of Duty® Million Dollar 1st place (previously with Team Complexity).

Scuf Gaming offers custom controllers and accessories for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare


The moment Call of Duty fans have been waiting for is finally here - Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has finally arrived!  Advanced Warfare (AW) brings numerous changes that would be expected of a new game, new guns, maps, equipment, etc., but it also brings one major change that no other Call of Duty has featured, “Verticality”. “Verticality” brings AW to an entirely new level, literally. The new Exo-Suit allows players to move faster, deploy shield, cloak, and more in order to reach new heights, perform new maneuvers, and play Call of Duty like never before.

With all of these changes coming in to play, no other piece of equipment is better suited to enhance your gameplay than a custom SCUF Controller. The back paddles of your SCUF will be used more than ever with AW’s focus on mobility; being able to hit those key jumps, drops, and Exo-abilities while never losing sight of your enemy is crucial to hitting the top of the leaderboards. With that in mind, here’s some of our recommendations for paddle configurations when playing AW:

To begin, we still like the “traditional” paddle configuration we used for all Call of Duty games; left paddle A and right paddle B for Xbox – left paddle X and right paddle O for Playstation. This configuration will give you maximum coverage of your movement both on and off the ground, and allow you to run circles around your opponents.  The paddles in this configuration help you take your Advanced Warfare game to the next level.

Another configuration we like is left paddle A, right paddle X (X/Square for PS). With the new reload mechanic in AW (you’re able to double tap reload to discard the clip for a faster reload), we’ve found that being able to reload quickly is the key between life and death in a firefight. Ammo is extremely plentiful in the game, so we often choose to sacrifice a few rounds in order to guarantee survival, or some crucial kills.

Finally, for you 4 paddle users, the configuration is based entirely on how you want to play. For the run and gun types, AYXB, or AYBX allow you to gain momentum and keep it as you tear through the battlefield. If you’re a Sniper or Trickshotter you may want to try ABXY for the quick weapon swaps while keeping the mobility buttons, A and B, close together.

Ultimately, the choice comes down to you as a gamer as to how to configure your custom SCUF Controller for Advanced Warfare. If you’re still unsure of what you’ll like best, you’re in luck because of one controller option, the EMR. Configure a custom SCUF Controller with the EMR (Electromagnetic Remapping) and you can swap paddle configurations to whatever you want, whenever you want. Feel like playing an Assault Rifle one map but with a Sniper the next? Simply use your SCUF Mag Key, swap your paddle configurations, and you’re good to go. The EMR has been essential to our game in AW so far, and we highly recommend it for gamers of all levels.
