PRESS RELEASE: July 2015 - Scuf Gaming continues to innovate with the launch of the new SCUF 4PS PRO edition paddle control system. Since inventing and patenting the paddle control system over 4 years ago, Scuf Gaming has redefined the way gamers use their controller in a more natural and intuitive way, with paddle play now becoming the determining factor for elite gamers. SCUF 4PS PRO paddles mimic the allocated face buttons so gamers can keep their thumbs on the thumbsticks while using the back paddles with their middle fingers to perform advanced moves with increased dexterity.

The SCUF 4PS PRO edition paddle control system has been re-engineered to ensure the paddles are easier to reach on the SCUF 4PS and are great for all hand sizes. Grip and grooves have been added to the end of the paddles to provide a secure grip for fingertips. The PRO edition switches are layered with gold on the circuits to provide an increased actuation life. And, there’s an overall improved haptic feedback on the SCUF 4PS controller. The SCUF 4PS for PlayStation 4 is feature rich and robust, just what’s expected from a SCUF controller.

We’ve done extensive research and development to create the new SCUF 4PS PRO edition paddle control system and we’re certain that gamers are going to love the new paddles. They feel great, are easier to reach no matter what your hand size may be and are backwards compatible. We’re excited for the upcoming season as PlayStation moves more competitively into eSports with Call of Duty: Black Ops III and feel the PRO paddles will   take the game to a whole new level.”

EA and Respawn gave us a heads up a little while back at E3 that Apex Legends would have Leviathan-sized things to come on July 2. With that date rapidly approaching, the full details have finally spilled out on Season 2: Battle Charge. What’s in store for those that will jump into the action? Let’s take a closer look.

New Apex Legend: Natalie “Wattson” Paquette


First up, there’s the electrifying new legend, Wattson. She’s got some truly defensive skills, as she can place and connect multiple nodes to create defensive fencing on the map. Enemies attempting to pass through will have their location pinged and be in for a literal shock when they take a hit to their health in addition to movement slowdown.

Taking full advantage of performance aim and shooting with your SCUF will be more important than ever against Wattson as her ultimate ability, the Interception Pylon, will destroy any explosives and equipment you throw within her radius. This gets more difficult if she’s stockpiling Ultimate Accelerants, which can give her Ultimate Ability a full recharge thanks to her unique passive ability, Spark of Genius.

New Apex Weapon: L-STAR

Along with Wattson, the new season of Apex Legends will feature a sweet new weapon that should prove to be a real game-changer: the L-STAR plasma rifle.

This high-powered LMG fires unique projectiles that are larger than those shot by other weapons in the game, allowing for players to deliver a dangerous spray. Be careful, however, as the L-STAR can overheat. Learning how to feather your shot will be essential to mastering this weapon. Look for the L-STAR to spawn exclusively in airdrops.

Time To Take Charge

Prepare to take charge because Apex Legends is set to make you feel like a Champion all over again when it launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC soon. For those in need of a refresher, brush up with our How to SCUF video and visit our Apex Legends hub for more tips. See you in Ranked Mode!

Halo Game Guide

First appearing as a launch title for Xbox in 2001, the Halo series continues to be one of Microsoft’s strongest gaming franchises.

Bolstered by the founding of the Halo World Championship in 2014, the Halo series has been a staple in competitive gaming since the very beginning. Its fresh take on level design and combat technology has made it a favorite in the eyes of millions of gamers, including pro gamers such as Brett “Naded” Leonard, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, and Tyler “Spartan” Ganza.


Paddle configuration:

When under fire in Blood Gulch or Lockout, every split second counts and SCUF's patented paddles are exactly what a player needs to make the most out of every moment.

       -  Map the left D-Pad button to your outer-left paddle. This means you can cycle through your grenades without sacrificing movement.

       -  Map X to your inner-left paddle to focus your Sprint and movement to the same hand.

       -  Map B to your inner-right paddle. Never lift your thumb from the thumbstick in order to aim and strike with melee or a Spartan Charge.

       -  Map A to your outer-right paddle. This will allow you to jump and aim with the same hand at the same time.



The SCUF interchangeable thumbstick system means a perfect fit for any hand size.

       -  For the left thumbstick, go with a regular-sized concave: this allows you to dig in for movement, and makes it that much easier to click for a ground pound.

       -  For the right thumbstick, a long-sized dome is the best way to go. The shape allows you to roll your thumb smoothly to aim, and the length of the stick assures quicker precision.


What The Experts Say:

I use 1 paddle on my SCUF to switch grenades. Since in Halo 5 you can only switch nades with left or right on the dpad, having a paddle for it allows for easy, on the fly switches to your plasma nades/splinter nades to be able to pick up quick sticks or reversals. They don't call me Naded for nothing.”

--Brett “Naded” Leonard

For Halo 5 specifically, it was almost a necessity for me to get used to the SCUF paddles. This game has multiple different mechanics the Halo franchise hadn't seen before, and keeping your thumb on the joysticks is monumental to being able to shoot and maneuver well around the map. If it wasn't for the paddles I would've had to change my controller settings and layout I've used for years

--Eric “Snip3down” Wrona

I use my left paddle to Sprint/Stabilize, and my right one is to thrust/dash.

--Cuyler “Huke” Garland
For Honor Game Guide

For Honor is a unique take on multiplayer competition. Choosing to fight for the bloodthirsty Vikings, the honor-bound Knights, or the mysterious Samurai is the first step to dueling, slashing, and clobbering your way to the top of the faction leaderboards.

Rather than the twitch-based run-and-gun that many gamers have come to expect from the online scene, For Honor requires a patience and deliberate style. Even in its PC version, a quality controller can mean the difference between glorious victory or a soggy defeat at the bottom of a ledge.


The most important aspect of For Honor’s controls lies in the thumbsticks. Swapping in and out of different stances to avoid one katana or long sword can be tough when it’s a one-on-one duel. It’s even worse when you’re facing down 2, 3, or even 4 other players!

       -  Put a regular length concave thumbstick on the left side of your controller, and pair it with a regular length domed stick on the right.

       -  The concave shape on the left thumbstick lets you dig in, which you’ll need when circling your opponent.

       -  The domed shape helps you float between stances: blocking hits that would have torn your head off otherwise.


As far as paddle configuration is concerned, the two most important face buttons in the heat of battle are your Guard Break (Square for Playstation, X for Xbox) and your Dodge (X for Playstation, A for Xbox).

       -  Map the Dodge button to a left paddle. This keeps your movement and dodge on the same hand, making movements more fluid.

       -  Map Guard Break to a right paddle. This leaves the right hand ready to change stances or attack should the opportunity present itself.

Long, tense duels means sweaty hands and plenty of tension. Getting the right handle on your controller means choosing the right grip and shell for your SCUF.

       -  SCUF Grip or Pro Grip handles are ideal for keeping your hands tight on the controller, game after game.

       -  SCUF’s Soft Touch finish means that your hands are comfortable and secure.

Be sure to keep a bottle of GamerGrip handy, especially when your teammates get slaughtered and you're facing down angry Vikings.
With Call of Duty: WWII getting its full release on November 3, it makes sense that gamers all over the world are desperate for some boots on the ground competition. And to satisfy that need for some classic run and gun action, Scuf Gaming is proud to host the Boots On The Ground Series by Courage and Hitch!

Featuring three invite-only competitions, the Boots On The Ground series is a perfect opportunity for CoD fans to watch some of their favorite players tickle those nostalgia glasses with multiplayer mayhem from Modern Warfare 2, Modern Warfare 3, and Black Ops 2.

The event begins this weekend with Modern Warfare 2, and continues all the way to the end of October. And the best part? All proceeds from the BOTG Series are going to charity!

Here’s the full tournament schedule:


Considering the fact that Scuf Gaming has its roots in boots on the ground combat, this is a competition that is close to the hearts of everyone at SCUF HQ. It was thanks to that style of multiplayer that terms like “SCUF Jump” and “SCUF Knife” have become household names since SCUF’s founding in 2011.
