How To Improve Your Gameplay Using a SCUF


With so many functions to engage while aiming and shooting, use more of your hand with Paddles to Crouch, Switch Weapons, Reload, and Evade during combat. 

Make Switch View/Item Wheel and Grenades more convenient to access while keeping your fingers on the triggers to aim with the SAX buttons on the SCUF Vantage 2.

Being tactical and strategic is a large part of Ghost Recon Breakpoint’s gameplay, but everyone has their own playstyles and preferences. Whether you prefer to play as the Panther Class and sneak around sniping enemies, or if you prefer to be more aggressive and charge into battle, SCUF’s thumbsticks are interchangeable to fit your style. 

  • Concave Thumbsticks are designed for more control over movement.

  • 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 and more precise aiming.

For aggressive players who like to use weapons like assault rifles: be quick to move and ready to aim effectively with a Short Concave Thumbstick on the left and a Short Domed Thumbstick on the right. 

For defensive players who like to use weapons like sniper rifles: be quick to move, but have the most precision and accuracy when aiming with a Short Concave Thumbstick on the left and a Tall Domed Thumbstick on the right.  


Avoid slipping during intense combat or while sneaking around in dangerous situations, with high performance grip: a textured non-slip surface on each SCUF controller. This is perfect for long gaming sessions to improve comfort and performance.


Increase your comfort and reduce hand exhaustion by ordering your SCUF without vibration modules / rumbles (or taking them out if you’re using a SCUF Vantage 2). Vibration can cause fatigue overtime from the added weight in your controller. 

Ghost Recon Breakpoint Gameplay Tips

Here are a few things of note to help improve gameplay:

  • While Ghost Recon Breakpoint is in third person, when you aim it switches to first person immediately which can be a bit jarring. You change this so when you aim, it’ll be third person aiming, and you can click in R3 to switch to first person if you want to switch. 

    • Go into Settings > Gameplay > Default Aiming Mode > Over The Shoulder

  • In addition, you’ll need to apply the same aiming preference to all of your weapons. 

    • Go into Settings > Gameplay > Toggle Aiming Mode > All Equipped Weapons

  • Use Helicopters over cars and boats to quickly and safely travel around the island. 

  • Search for smoke trails and make your way to them; once discovered, you can fast travel to these spots known as Bivouacs to make travel way simpler. 

  • While you’re asked to select a class early on, you can change your class at a Bivouacs through the Tactics tab if you want to change up your playstyle. 

  • Tripping and rolling down cliffs while traversing terrain will decrease your Stamina bar, but you can replenish it with water from your Canteen. Just be sure to keep the Canteen filled up if you’re a bit clumsy.
