Expert Controller Settings in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Expert Controller Settings in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

While paddles improve your overall performance and thumbsticks improve your aim, our trigger system will maximize your speed when aiming and shooting. 

Step One: Identify Your Game Preferences

Are you a gamer who likes to play a wide variety of games or are you a dedicated First Person Shooter player?

We have two options depending on the answer: Digital TAP Bumpers and Digital Triggers or SCUF’s Trigger Control System.  

Step Two: Select Your Trigger Preferences

Digital TAP Bumpers and Digital Triggers

These features completely eliminate the range of movement of the bumpers and triggers and provides a feel similar to a mouse click. This is only recommended for players who only play shooter games.

The Digital TAP Bumpers and Digital Triggers are currently only available for SCUF IMPACT & Infinity4PSPRO. 

Trigger Control System

SCUF’s Trigger Control system is available on every controller model and offers full trigger customization through adjustable trigger stops and hair triggers.

For Call of Duty, you will want to have your trigger stops on unless you plan on using vehicles (which require the full trigger motion to operate).

They will reduce the amount your trigger has to travel past the activation point and will allow for faster shooting and aiming, especially efficient with semi-automatic weapons. 

To further tune your trigger movement, the hair triggers will allow you to modify the distance to the activation point so firing and aiming becomes a one-tap process.

You should only adjust your hair triggers in game; start by turning the key until you hit the activation point which is where your weapon will start shooting on its own, then dial it back 1 turn, or to your preference. 

Step Three: Selecting Other SCUF Options


Vibration can affect your aim, but also cause fatigue overtime from the added weight in your controller.

We recommend ordering your SCUF without vibration modules / rumbles (or taking them out if you’re using a SCUF Vantage).

SAX Buttons 

If you are a SCUF Vantage owner, you have two additional access points called SAX Buttons designed to further reduce finger movement and therefore improve your performance.

These are located on the side of the controller which you can engage using your inner finger. We recommend mapping Leathal Equipment (L1) to S1 and Tactical Equipment (R1) to S2 to start with.

Strategically throw grenades or put up barricades with SAX Buttons without removing your fingers from the triggers.
