Destiny is still in full force as millions of gamers across the world continue to delve deeper in to the game. With Bungie constantly updating, patching, and releasing new content, Destiny is poised to stick around for a long time.

We at SCUF love Destiny and wanted to share some of our recommendations for paddle configurations on our Custom SCUF controllers while you play the game:

destiny hunter

First up is the Hunter class, considered by many to be the strongest class in the Crucible, Destiny's Player vs. Player Arena. For your SCUF Controller paddle setup, we recommend A/Y for two paddles and ABXY for four, as mobility and weapon swapping should be your two main concerns. Those paddle configurations are recommended for both Gunslinger and Bladedancer subclasses. We also reached out to fans on Twitter to get their reactions to the Hunter:

"Very strong subclasses, but don't mix very well between PVE and PVP. BD (Bladedancer) special and melee are worthless on bosses."
@DoggishDays

"I love the Hunter. So many cool abilities and if you have good aim + impact, the Gold Gun is insane."
@Flawison

"The throwing knife is mad fun."
@KOSDFF

Destiny warlock

Next up is the Warlock, which excels at ranged combat, whether in the Voidwalker or Sunsinger subclass. Since our initial review of Destiny, we have taken more time to experience the Warlock overall; both sub-classes, its playstyle, etc. We still recommend, for both sub-classes, to have your far left paddle on the SCUF Controller, be the A button; mobility is key in Destiny overall and being able to jump, glide, and aim is crucial. The far right paddle we would put as X if you are playing an upclose Sunsinger, for those quick reloads; for a more ranged focused Warlock we would put the far right as Y. The middle two paddles, for those of you using the four paddle design, are entirely at your discretion, but we definitely recommend those left and right paddle configurations above.

We went to Twitter to see what you all thought of the Warlock class, and here are some of the responses:

"It's an extremely efficient support class while using the Sunsinger subclass, and assaulter via Voidwalker."
@bansheeruler

"An absolute tank with its shot gun melee"
@J4Justin_

"Personally, I feel I'm at a disadvantage while using this class compared to the Hunter & Titan."
@j23t_

destiny titan

Our final class spotlight for Destiny features the Titan; a character who can choose to literally jump in to the fray to cause devastating damage, or to protect allies. Titans are most comfortable on the front lines of the battle, especially those playing the Striker subclass. Their Fist of Havoc Super Ability decimates anything it comes in to contact with, but will put them face to face with enemies outside the blast radius. Defender Titans are the same way, able to rush in to battle with their Ward of Dawn Super Ability that both protects and buffs yourself and allies. Due to that playstyle, we recommend using an A/X, or ABYX, paddle configuration for the Titan in either subclass. Being able to manuever correctly both in and out of danger and keep ammo in your guns is crucial, and mapping those functions to the paddles makes it possible to do so while on the move and aiming down sights.

We took to Twitter once again to see what others had to say about the Titan:

Titan is the powerhouse class. Sure he doesn't do the most damage like the warlock, but he has survivability
@hisPetMunkey

The Defender subclass of the Titan is very versatile. Being able to put a shield up to stay alive is great.
@JareBareCom

Best class in the game imo, strong overall with versatile options and a deadly supercharge in the Fist of havoc!

The single most pre-ordered game of all time, Destiny, has arrived, and we at SCUF are just as excited as everyone else. After some time playing the game, we can attest that using a SCUF Custom Controller strongly improves your gameplay in multiple ways. The paddles are the largest factor; the gun fights in Destiny are fast and fierce, and being able to jump, turn, dash, aim, and fire all at the same time is a massive help. There's tons more to say about the game, and in the coming months, SCUF will be working on a companion guide for Destiny and other new releases. You can expect to see gameplay tips and tricks, as well as how we recommend configuring your SCUF controller for each game, and each class within the game. For now, check out our overview on each of the classes below:

Titan

The Titan is big, bad, and in your face. Our experience has us playing the Titan to its strengths; using his stun grenade on a group of enemies, and then diving in with his powered up melee and Striker abilities. We normally ran the Titan with an auto rifle, shotgun, and rocket launcher, so you can still be versatile at range and close up. We recommend using an ABYX paddle configuration for the Titan; you need to be mobile and you will be reloading a lot.

Warlock

To us, the Warlock is a class that excels in ranged firefights. We would use the Voidwalker ability whenever possible, raining down a devastating bolt of energy on any enemy below. Weapons-wise, we tended to play with Scout Rifles and Fusion Rifles. Both give you the ability to play the mid to long range game, while still offering great firepower and versatility. We swapped between two main configurations on our controller paddles while playing the Warlock, ABYX, and AXYB. The former offers you quick mobility and reload capabilities for your midrange game, while the latter gives you even more mobility in the form of the crouch and slide for better positioning.

Hunter

The Hunter is a hybrid class that can do well both from a great distance or up close and personal. Quick and agile is the name of the Hunter's game, and its Gunslinger ability emphasizes this. Offering a 1 shot kill, the "golden gun" is devastating. We would often switch between our Sniper Rifle and primary weapon while playing the Hunter; giving us a chance to clean up an enemy that didn't die from one shot with the Sniper rifle. Our paddle configuration ran ABXY, as mobility and weapon swapping were our two main concerns.

4PS-BACK1

Each class in Destiny offers different play styles, which only add intricacies as you level up. As you and your character level up and evolve, your gameplay should do the same. That is why we absolutely recommend the EMR feature for Destiny (available now for the custom SCUF One controllers and coming soon for the custom SCUF 4PS!).

Scuf Gaming recently had the opportunity to work with Turn 10 Studios and Microsoft Studios on their latest Forza Motorsport game, Forza 5. The result, was the creation of three Custom SCUF designed cars within the game: The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG 2011, the Aston Martin Vanquish 2012, and the Mazda Andretti Autosport USF2000 2013! Be sure to check out the full story on our website HERE, as well as instructions on how to download the cars in-game for yourself!

While you're there, be sure to check out our line of SCUF ONE Controllers as well! The SCUF Controller makes the perfect companion to Forza 5, especially with the newly designed SCUF Control Disk! The back paddles, which are a staple of any SCUF Controller, allow you to hit the face buttons without taking your hands off the thumbsticks. This will allow you to hit those powerslides, shift gears, and more without ever having to sacrifice your steering! You can even customize the paddles mid-game through the use of the SCUF ONE's (EMR) Electro Magnetic Remapping feature, allowing you to change the paddle configuration on the fly for whatever gets you to 1st place!

UMG Dallas showcased some great gameplay from teams of all levels, but no one could have anticipated the amazing performance from Denial eSports. Opening the day with a 3-0 on team Vanquish, and then another 3-0 against the then-undefeated EnVyUs. The winners’ finals saw Denial taking on EnVy again, who had just defeated OpTic Nation in the losers’ bracket. Denial only had to win a best of 5 to take the tournament, while EnVy had to win 2 series. Denial didn’t give them that chance as they went to sweep the series 3-0 once again, beginning with a 60+ point spread in the first Domination game. Congrats to Denial for their outstanding performance!

Among the top 5 stood three of #TeamSCUF teams; Team EnVyUs, OpTic Nation, and OpTic Gaming in order of placement. EnVy once again played very well and really pushed their hardest, only losing to Denial the entire tournament. In what must have ultimately been a bittersweet moment for owner of both Team OpTic and OpTic Nation, OpTic H3CZ watched his two teams compete for the 3rd place finish with OpTic Nation ultimately taking the victory.

Scuf Gaming is very proud of its #TeamSCUF Pro Teams and wishes them the best of luck in the coming PAX Prime tournament this weekend! We appreciate all of our fans who came to our booth to see the Custom SCUF Controllers and support #TeamSCUF!

This Friday, August 22nd, UMG Dallas 2014 begins! With such a strong showing for #TeamSCUF Pro Teams at the recent Gfinity 3 tournament we couldn’t be more excited to see what the teams will bring this weekend.

Team EnVyUs will likely be the talk of the tournament after coming off such a strong victory at G3. A
15-1 win/loss map showing, and team member FormaL leading the entire tournament with a 1.35 KD has EnVy poised to keep their momentum going. To play like your favorite Pro’s from Team EnVyUs, check out the EnVy SCUF One HERE.

OpTic Gaming had a disappointing performance, to say the least, at the G3 tournament but that could very well be the motivation they needed to up their game for Dallas. Everyone knows the team can perform with the best, and this tournament is their change to remind us of that. Check out the new OpTic SCUF One controller HERE.

In a rare turn of events, OpTic Nation managed to finish higher than OG at the recent Gfinity Tournament. The team showed high level play during their bout to their 3rd place finish, and we expect to see them perform at Dallas as well. Check out the original OpTic SCUF One HERE.

FaZe Pro Team did well at G3 with their recent roster change adding Parasite and Apathy. Giving the team some time to better coordinate the players, FaZe could perform quite well this weekend. Pick up your own FaZe SCUF One HERE.

While not bringing the best performance at G3, we know Team Kaliber is capable of great things. The, relatively, recent roster change back to their original lineup should prove to be very formidable indeed, and we hope to see them “wow” us this weekend. Pick up your very own TK SCUF One HERE.

Curse Gaming was one man down at Gfinity with Tipsy not being able to play. Now that things are squared away, the squad should be in full force this upcoming weekend with great things expected. Click HERE to see the SCUF One Curse controller!

JusTus Pro has done nothing but improve as a team since their inception. Everyone will be interested to see what they bring to UMG Dallas this year and how much of a name they can make for themselves.

After not qualifying for Season 3, Strictly Business will have to play hard at UMG Dallas to remind everyone how formidable of a team they truly are. The addition of new teammate Phizzurp should also show their strength as a team. Pick up your very own Strictly Business SCUF One HERE.
