TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR TRIGGERS:
IMPROVE ACCURACY & REDUCE LATENCY TO WIN MORE WITH SCUF’S TRIGGER & STOP MECHANISM


PRESS RELEASE: April 23, 2015 – Today SCUF releases the second of six segments on SCUFOLOGY - Adjustable Hair Trigger & Stop Mechanism + Trigger Extenders; providing improved accuracy and reduced trigger latency when using the gun.

After inventing and patenting the Adjustable Hair Trigger and Stop Mechanism for gaming controllers 4 years ago, SCUF have significantly improved gaming performance. With the objective of reducing trigger and hand movement, SCUF invented these features. 1.) Adjustable Hair Trigger can be self adjusted using a SCUF Key to reduce the trigger swing before the trigger is pulled. 2.) Trigger Stop Mechanism minimizes the distance the trigger has to travel before springing back to a neutral position on the controller. The Trigger Stop Mechanism is most beneficial when using guns in shooter games offering a noticeably faster reaction time, which is crucial during gunfights.

Duncan Ironmonger, CEO & Co-Founder of Scuf Gaming, says, “Our vision was to create features and functions that would become an integral part of controllers for elite gamers. Our patented Adjustable Trigger & Trigger Stop Mechanism has changed the way gamers play shooters; making them more competitive by improving their accuracy and allowing gamers to get more shots off during gameplay. We innovate to create competition legal features endorsed by professional gaming leagues to offer the best competitive gaming experience.”

Dillon ‘Attach’ Price, Denial eSports (2015 Call of Duty® Champions) says, “Trigger stops are one of the most important, if not the most important, part of the controller. Being able to shoot as fast as possible is a huge factor and can decide whether you win or lose a game.”

SCUF FPS Adjustable Trigger & Pro Grip - Home Combo Kit

Scuf Gaming wanted gamers to benefit from our technology so; gamers with any budget can now afford the SCUF Trigger and Grip features. The trigger grips are adjustable using a SCUF Key, allowing the gamer to externally tune their triggers to their desired distance, based on the game type; adjusting the sensitivity and height of the triggers so the gamer knows exactly when a weapon will fire. The SCUF FPS Adjustable Trigger Grips are self-fitted and easy to swap out with SCUF’s Pro Grip handles. The Pro Grip handles are great for gamers who may wish to change to racing or sports games, where a full range of trigger motion may be required. SCUF FPS Adjustable Trigger & Pro Grip Combo Kits are SCUF ONE and Xbox One compatible and available for purchase at $24.95 on scufgaming.com and select e-tailers/retailers.

SCUF 4PS FANGS – Self-Fitted Trigger Extenders for PlayStation 4

SCUF 4PS Trigger Extenders were designed to lengthen the trigger, which helps improve trigger sensitivity and accuracy! They’re great for all hand sizes; especially for larger hands as they extend the parameters of a stock PlayStation 4 controller. The trigger extenders clip easily on and off any SCUF 4PS or PS4 controller and they also have grip and grooves for your fingers, providing additional comfort and grip. SCUF 4PS FANGS Trigger Extenders are available for purchase at $9.95 on scufgaming.com and select e-tailers/retailers.

PRESS RELEASE – December 23 2013: Scuf Gaming is delighted to announce a partnership with UMG Gaming for 2014

 

UMG Gaming, provider of LAN events throughout the United States, has partnered with the professionals choice for console gaming controllers, Scuf Gaming!

UMG

 

Jeff Covington, Founder of UMG speaks“Scuf Gaming are a huge supporter of the Pro Gaming scene and a Company we have been wanting to work with for a long time. SCUF controllers are used by the majority of professional gamers – they are what the community want! We have always been impressed by the quality and innovation Scuf Gaming bought to the Pro Gaming market through the addition of their features and are very excited for the year ahead!

 

Duncan Ironmonger, CEO & Co-Founder Scuf Gaming says; “As a Company who creates products for elite gamers, we have always kept a close relationship with key gaming event organizers and Gaming Leagues. UMG is a Company who has rapidly grown this past few years and have done so in an impressive way. This is great for the competitive gaming scene and I give full credit to their Management staff and look forward to seeing what 2014 holds!”

 

ABOUT SCUF GAMING: Until we invented the SCUF in 2010, gamers could only use compromising techniques like CLAW to play with more of their hand. Using back paddles, which mimic the front buttons, Scuf Gaming has made it possible to display more dexterity in a safe, ergonomic way. We understand the limitations of a normal controller for Professional gamers, who need to control over 20 functions whilst they’re in gameplay; making use of only 2 fingers and 2 thumbs is extremely limiting at the Top level. One size cannot fit all and will not fit all for the elite 10% of the community. It can restrict the advancement of play, the games and their enjoyment; hence why some Professional players were eventually forced to use techniques like CLAW; which can be very harmful to your hand with repetition. The paddles and trigger mechanisms that Scuf Gaming developed and patented allow each player to choose their preferred settings for gameplay and help them become the best gamer of they can be.

 

ABOUT UMG GAMING:

UMG provides LAN events throughout the United States and was formed in order to provide gamers a source for competitive events nationwide. It has since grown and expanded beyond the gaming scene to offer different services for corporate clients and all types of parties and events.
