Standard controllers require you to move away from the thumbsticks to perform important moves in game. Each SCUF Controller has paddles to improve your performance in FIFA 20; keep your thumbs on the thumbsticks for performing skill moves while maintaining use of key functions.
Step One: The Outer Paddles
Let’s start with learning how to use the most important feature of a SCUF controller: the Paddle Control System. Starting with two paddles.
By default, the farthest left paddle is mapped to Ground Pass (X on PS4, A on Xbox) and the farthest right paddle is mapped to Shoot/Volley (O on PS4, B on Xbox).
Practice using only the paddles for these functions and ignore their face buttons during gameplay. It will take a little while to get used to, but keep practicing and you will develop muscle memory.
Step Two: The Inner Paddles
Next up are the inner two paddles. By default, the inner left paddle is mapped to Lobb Pass/Cross (Square on PS4, X on Xbox) and the inner right paddle is mapped to Through Pass (Triangle on PS4, Y on Xbox).
Repeat the same process as before, but now incorporating one of the inner two paddles. Ignore their face buttons until you’re comfortable with using all the paddles instead of the facebuttons.
With regular practice, it can take up to two weeks to be completely used to them. Keep control of the ball and perform skill moves quickly while being able to cross, pass, and shoot.
Step Three: Configuring the Paddles
Now that you’ve mastered the paddles, now you can start remapping to different playstyles. For example, have more control over your movement by keeping your left thumb on the thumbstick and still access Offside Trap (D-Pad Down) and Attacking Tactics (D-Pad Up) by placing them on the outer paddles or SAX on the Vantage 2.

Depending on your controller model, you will either need to use an EMR key (or flip on the remapping switch if you’re a SCUF Vantage owner). Press and hold the button you want to map to your paddle or sax button.
When finished, remove the EMR key (or flip the remap switch back into play mode on SCUF Vantage) and you’re ready to go.
