Apex Season 3

Get ready to become champion in a whole new arena in of Apex Legends’ Season 3, available since October 1st on PS4™, Xbox One™, and PC. With a new champion, a new map, a new rifle, and a new battle pass, you’ll want every advantage to take your squad to the top. Here’s what you need to know to become the best gamer you can be in Apex Legends.

Be A Legend With SCUF

Be prepared for anything that comes your way with the rear paddles on every SCUF controller. Jump and Slide to dodge enemies and perform trick shots all while keeping your thumbs on the thumbsticks, ready to aim.

In addition to paddles, the SCUF Vantage has 2 additional side buttons. Keep your health/shield and grenade wheels handy at your side by placing them on the Sax buttons for quicker control during intense fights.

For even more control of your aim, every SCUF controller also features an interchangeable thumbstick system. With thumbsticks available in different shapes and heights, you can truly customize your gear to match your play style. Shorter thumbsticks are great for movement while longer thumbsticks increase your angle to play with, meaning more accuracy. Similarly, the concave shape will give your thumb more grip, which is ideal for quick movement and high sensitivity players and the domed shape enables more finesse, ideal for lower sensitivities.

If you’re a Wattson who loves to play defensively, we recommend a short concave thumbstick on the left for speed and the subtle control and accuracy of a tall domed thumbstick on the right.

If you’re more aggressive like Wraith and Bangalore players, we again recommend a short concave thumbstick on the left, but this time a short domed thumbstick on the right to enable more reactivity.

A Closer Look At The New Offerings For Season 3 Of Apex Legends

Crypto, the new champion, is a hacker who uses his drone to survey the surrounding area. He will be great to counter aggressive teams and break the enemy's tactical strategy by automatically highlighting enemy players for your fellow teammates. However, be mindful: while the drone is active, Crypto stays in place, so be sure to pick a safe spot and it will alert enemies that they have been spotted. Crypto’s Ultimate Ability is an EMP blast using the Drone to slow down enemies, disable traps, and deal up to 50 damage.

World’s Edge, the new map, features a totally different landscape than that of King’s Canyon with all new fire and ice environments, an urban city, and a moving train. It’s vast with open sight lines, perfect for Crypto and more strategic plays.

The Charge Rifle is from Titanfall and Titanfall 2, an anti-Titan laser canon; it’s slow to charge but can shoot over a long distance and deals a lot of damage. It’ll be interesting to see how it plays out compared to other popular weapons in the game.

Apex Legends Season 3: Meltdown released October 1st 2019, on PS4™, Xbox One™, and PC.
June 13, 2016 - Scuf Gaming (SCUF), global leader and innovator in eSports, introduces a new line of controller accessories compatible with the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller (ELITE), available later this year. As part of the exclusive agreement, SCUF will offer controller customization for the ELITE so Xbox/PC Gamers can experience SCUF innovation if they are purchasing an ELITE controller.

At E3 2016, Microsoft announced SCUF as the exclusive customization partner for the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller (click here for more info). This supplements the announcement made by Microsoft in October 2015, when SCUF was announced as the exclusive 3rd party accessories partner, following Microsoft’s licensing of SCUF’s technology.

FREMONT, CA – December 16th, 2019, 7am PST – CORSAIR®, a world leader in high-performance gaming peripherals and enthusiast components, is pleased to announce that it has agreed to acquire high-performance controller pioneer SCUF Gaming "SCUF®" and its extensive patent portfolio. The transaction is expected to complete by the end of December 2019.

Since launching in 2011, SCUF has recognized that one size does not fit all and set a new standard for performance controllers for use with Xbox, PlayStation, and PC. SCUF radically changed the way controllers are used by redesigning the layout of a controller to increase hand use and improve performance, matching the evolving complexities of competitive games.

In comparison to generic game controllers, SCUF controllers are modular by feature and design, built to specification to shorten hand movements and gain a measurable performance advantage, making it easier for players to tailor the controller to their individual preferences. SCUF controllers feature a vast range of configurable components, including a patented paddle control system, removable back paddles, a quick-access remapping switch, customizable thumbsticks, hair trigger, trigger stops and extenders, choice of D-pads, and an interchangeable magnetic faceplate.

"We are thrilled to greatly expand our portfolio of industry-leading peripherals and enter the gaming controller space to help gamers play at their best," said Andy Paul, Founder and CEO of CORSAIR. "SCUF leads the market for performance controllers and are a key ingredient to the success of countless esports professionals. SCUF will make an excellent and winning addition to the vast lineup of award-winning CORSAIR and Elgato products."

"Over the last ten years, we've worked tirelessly to create the features that have made SCUF the preferred controller for the majority of top professional gamers. Controllers are the single most important connection between an individual and their game, becoming an extension of the player to maximize their performance," said Duncan Ironmonger, Founder and CEO of SCUF Gaming. "We are delighted to join forces with CORSAIR, who share similar DNA to SCUF with regards to innovation and design in the gaming market. CORSAIR has the operational scale and network to help us bring our innovation to even more gamers."

SCUF is a strong enthusiast gaming brand with an expansive IP portfolio and deep partnerships within the esports space. SCUF has a loyal affiliate network and is a licensed partner of Activision for Call of Duty, as well as the official controller partner of many gaming leagues including the NBA 2K League and eMLS.

SCUF Gaming will remain a separate brand within the CORSAIR family and will continue to operate from its HQ in Atlanta, as well as regional offices. All existing SCUF Gaming warranties, purchases, and support are unaffected and will continue to be provided by SCUF Gaming.

Jones Day served as legal advisor to CORSAIR. McDermott Will & Emery served as legal counsel to SCUF Gaming. Stifel served as exclusive financial advisor to SCUF Gaming.


Founded in 1994, CORSAIR has grown from pioneering the high-performance DRAM market into one of the world's leading providers of high-performance gaming and streaming products. CORSAIR offers a complete range of products to equip gamers, enthusiasts, and esports athletes, including mechanical keyboards, precision gaming mice, wireless headsets, premium PC components, and the CORSAIR ONE fully-integrated gaming PC.

-- Scuf Gaming Controllers Will Be Used During All NBA 2K League Gameplay --


NEW YORK, May 1, 2018 – As the NBA 2K League makes its debut today, it has announced a new multiyear partnership that will make Scuf Gaming, the innovator and creator of high-performance gaming controllers, the Official Gaming Controller of the NBA 2K League.

The NBA 2K League, the professional esports league co-founded by the NBA and Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc., tips off today with 17 teams competing in the inaugural season.

During the NBA 2K League’s first season, Scuf Gaming controllers will be available for use by the best NBA 2K players in the world as they compete during the 17-week season which runs from May to August and includes weekly matchups, three in-season tournaments, playoffs, and the NBA 2K League Finals.

“Scuf Gaming’s handcrafted controllers are fully customizable and will allow our players to personalize key areas of design and function to match their styles,” said Brendan Donohue, Managing Director, NBA 2K League.

The partnership will also include a merchandising component, giving fans of the NBA 2K League the chance to game with the same official NBA 2K League controllers that will be used in competition.

“NBA 2K encompasses everything we love about gaming: it’s fun, fast, and it rewards real skill. It’s a franchise that is destined to become a standard-bearer of professional gaming,” said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO and Founder of Scuf Gaming. “Like a good pair of sneakers on the court, a SCUF is an extension of the player, allowing for a better controller experience through customization, comfort, performance and design.”

SCUF controllers can make a significant impact when playing competitively. There are several functional areas of a SCUF that can improve gameplay, including the configurable paddle control system on the back of the controller which allows players to use more of their hand simultaneously, resulting in faster passes, more steals, and better shots.

All NBA 2K League games will be available live on Twitch at For more information about the NBA 2K League, visit

“The Awakening”, the first DLC Pack for Black Ops 3, has arrived for Playstation 4 users.

A total of four new Multiplayer Maps, the start of the Black Ops 3 “Zombies Experience” Der Eisendrache, and many bug fixes and balancing will be sure to give your SCUF Controller a workout this week.

The new Multiplayer Maps include:

  • Gauntlet – highlighting Treyarch’s classic “three-lane map structure”, with very diverse and impressive visuals, allows players to travel through dense jungle, a frozen arctic area, and an urban city in the same map.

  • Splash – an abandoned water park that offers plenty of fun combat opportunities including skirmishes down waterslides, a pirate ship, and a lazy river. This map definitely highlights many underwater combat opportunities.

  • Rise – Features classic Call of Duty style combat with plenty of areas to employ the new core movement system. Arguably the map best designed for competitive play from “Awakening”, Rise heralds back to the classic cover-based Call of Duty.

  • Skyjacked – A reimagined version of one of our personal favorite Call of Duty Black Ops 2 multiplayer maps, Hijacked.  This map includes many new areas to explore thanks to the core movement system and provides a fresh take on a classic map.

All four maps will surely provide fans of Black Ops 3 with exciting new opportunities and strategies to develop, and we’re sure to see the impact the balance changes make for the Pro Teams in the Call of Duty World League.

Whether you’re a pro or a causal fan, make sure you have your SCUF Controller ready to go. SCUF thumbsticks and Paddle Control System make movement around the new maps a breeze and can provide that edge during every firefight.

The core concept of any Call of Duty Zombies mode is survival, and nothing will help you survive the hordes of the undead like a SCUF Controller. For Zombies we cannot recommend the Electro Magnetic Remapping (EMR) feature enough; having the ability to change your back paddles on the fly is essential to a high-pressure team based mode like Zombies. Be sure to select this feature if you are a Zombie mode fan!
