Thumbsticks are crucial to having good aim control. Everyone has different hand sizes, thumb lengths, and preferences; that’s why SCUF thumbsticks are interchangeable: to match your unique preference of comfort and playstyle.

Are you an aggressive gamer like Amara, the elemental brawler siren, who runs into battle to pulverize enemies?

Or maybe you’re a defensive gamer like FL4K, the beastmaster, who stalks his prey and sends out his pets.

Step Two: Understanding Thumbstick Shape and Length

There are two parts to the thumbstick: its shape and its length. 

  • Concave Thumbsticks are designed for more movement control. 

  • Domed Thumbsticks are designed for more accuracy. 

  • Short Thumbsticks are designed for quicker movement speed.

  • Tall Thumbsticks are designed to have more angle to play with. 

Step Three: Choosing Thumbsticks

For aggressive gamers, like shotgun players, we recommend a short concave thumbstick on the left and a short domed thumbstick on the right. You’ll be quick to move and still ready to quickly aim.

For defensive gamers, like sniper players, we recommend a short concave thumbstick on the left and a tall domed thumbstick on the right. You can still move quickly, but also be the most accurate when aiming. 

Try out different thumbstick types and combinations to find the ones that fit your playstyle, or change it up when you’re in the mood for something different.
