|Rest of the world|
A new era has arrived for PlayStation 4 fans now that Scuf Gaming has introduced its clever functions to the improved PS4 controller. Scuf Gaming has officially launched the SCUF 4PS enabling elite gamers to utilize more of their hand in a comfortable, safe and ergonomic way. The SCUF 4PS is feature rich with several patented features, including two “SCUF HOOK” back paddles, a fully redesigned back and built-in high-grade SCUF Pro-Grip handles, which are normally an upgrade on SCUF controllers. The two back paddles come standard with A&B configuration but can be mapped according to your preference as an upgrade using the EMR (Electro Magnetic Remapping) Mag Key – (the EMR feature will be released at a later date.) For gamers unfamiliar with SCUF, these paddles mimic the allocated face buttons so you can keep your thumbs on the thumbsticks, while using the back-paddles with your middle fingers to perform more advanced moves. Customers also have the option to choose their favorite SCUF Precision Thumbsticks in domed or concave, which come in three different lengths (regular, medium, long) and various color options. Sports and fighting game fanatics will be thrilled to try the new SCUF CONTROL DISC, which is fully removable and offers extra control and accuracy for the d-pad! Gamers are winning with the tactical edge that SCUF provides where over 85% of Professional Gamers in Console use SCUF for shooters.
“We have invested millions of dollars into research and development and educating the Gaming World on safe ergonomic use of the controller at the top level so when we embarked on “Project 4PS” a year ago we wanted to offer the PlayStation 4 community something unique and special, something that added that edge over its predecessor, the SCUF PS (for PS3). We believe the results are impressive and further display the innovation our customers have come to expect from Scuf Gaming, said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO and Co-Founder of Scuf Gaming. “SCUF controllers are all about functionality and comfort so our focus is on offering unique features which empower every gamer to personalize their controller to suit their gameplay. From paddles to grip to the size of thumbsticks, every part of a SCUF controller is about improving core performance so you can become the best gamer you can be!”
Prices for the SCUF 4PS start at $119.95 (please NOTE this includes the PRO GRIP) and controllers begin shipping in 4-6 weeks. SCUF is currently offering fourteen (14) unique front shell designs for the launch and will be adding new styles over the next few months. To pre-order, please visit www.scufgaming.com.
Scuf Gaming controllers are endorsed by Major League Gaming and trusted by over 85% of Pro-Gamers. SCUF is leading the field in the professional gaming market.

In this guide, we’ll be showing you how to get the most out of your SCUF controller in Fortnite starting with the basics and then we’ll move onto advanced configurations and techniques.
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 (P4) is mapped to Jump and the farthest right paddle (P1) is mapped to Build Mode. 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. Mastering these two paddles will help you dodge your enemies and gain the upper hand by quickly accessing build mode while being ready for anything that comes your way.
Next up are the inner two paddles. By default, the inner left paddle (P3) is mapped to Reload/Interact and the inner right paddle (P2) is mapped to Next Weapon/Harvest Weapon. 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 face buttons. With regular practice, it can take up to two weeks to be completely used to them.
Conquering all four paddles will give you the biggest advantage to quickly Jump, Reload, Swap Weapons, and enter Build Mode all while keeping your thumb on the thumbstick, ready to aim.
Now that you’ve mastered the paddles, let’s start remapping. 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. Whether you’re an aggressive player who cycles through weapons quickly during fights or a strategic player who maps out their route to escape the ring, you can tailor your SCUF to your playstyle. Keep an eye out for a video on more Fortnite Layouts coming soon!
When it comes to improving your game, while paddles a great difference, nothing improves your aiming more than having the right thumbsticks. Everyone has different hand sizes, thumb lengths, and preferences. That’s why SCUF thumbsticks are interchangeable: to match your unique preference of comfort and playstyle.
There are two parts to the thumbstick: its shape and its length.
- Concave thumbsticks are designed for more movement control.
- 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.
For aggressive players, like shotgun players, we recommend a short concave thumbstick on the left and a short domed thumbstick on the right. You’ll be quick to move and still ready to quickly aim.
For defensive players, like sniper players, we recommend a short concave thumbstick on the left and a tall domed thumbstick on the right. You can still move quickly, but also be the most accurate when aiming.
While paddles improve your overall performance and thumbsticks improve your aim, our trigger system will take your speed when aiming and shooting to the next level. SCUF’s Trigger Control system is available on every controller model and offers full trigger customization through adjustable trigger stops and hair triggers.
For Fortnite, you will want to have your trigger stops on unless you plan on using vehicles (which require the full trigger motion to operate). They will reduce the amount your trigger has to travel past the activation point and will allow for faster shooting and aiming.
To further tune your trigger movement, the hair triggers will allow you to modify the distance to the activation point. You should only adjust your hair triggers in game; start by turning the key until you hit the activation point which is where your weapon will start shooting on its own, then dial it back 1 turn, or to your preference.
For dedicated shooter players, you can also choose our Digital Tap Bumpers and Digital Triggers options (for SCUF IMPACT & Infinity4PS PRO). These features completely eliminate the range of movement of bumpers and triggers and provides a feel similar to a mouse click. This is only recommended for players who only play shooter games.
Vibration can affect your aim, but also cause fatigue overtime from the added weight in your controller. We recommend ordering your SCUF without vibration modules / rumbles (or taking them out if you’re using a SCUF Vantage).
If you are a SCUF Vantage owner, you have two additional access points called Sax Buttons designed to further reduce finger movement and therefore improve your performance. These are located on the side of the controller which you can engage using your inner finger. We recommend mapping Previous Weapon to S1 and Next Weapon to S2 to start with. Seamlessly cycle through weapons with sax while jumping and building using the paddles.
Now that you know about all the mechanical changes that you will make you a better player, let’s move onto the digital settings so that you can get the most out of your gameplay with your SCUF. We recommend going into your Fortnite settings and making a couple tweaks.
Make picking up items quicker by tapping the paddle instead of holding it down.
Go into Settings > Game
Tap to Search Interact > Turn On
Increase the speed at which you build by holding and spinning to quickly build a base.
Go into Settings > Game
Turbo Building > Turn On
Now Time To Play
Now that you have customized the different aspects of your controller and tuned your gameplay settings, it’s time to jump in-game and test your new setup! Like every change, adjusting to these new settings may take some time - however, with practice and dedication, every SCUF feature will help you reach your full potential and become the best Fortnite player you can be!

Our ethos is underpinned by our commitment to reinvesting a substantial chunk of our revenue into research and development to ensure we lead the way and provide a more intuitive and comfortable experience for our community to enjoy video games. Our most recent major project, which started in early 2014, was Project Infinity1.

PRESS RELEASE: 2nd MAY 2014 - SCUF RELEASE NEW 3-DIMENSIONAL SIDEWINDER BACK PADDLES FOR SCUF ONE CONTROLLERS
SCUF RELEASE NEW 3-DIMENSIONAL SIDEWINDER BACK PADDLES FOR SCUF ONE CONTROLLERS ENABLING PLAYERS TO ACHIEVE BETTER PLAY FOR VARYING HAND SIZES
Scuf Gaming continues to innovate and announce their 3-dimensional patent pending “SCUF Sidewinder” paddles for SCUF ONE controllers.
Duncan Ironmonger, CEO & Co-Founder of Scuf Gaming says “To compensate for the increased depth of the controller handles on the Xbox One controller, SCUF wanted to release a new 3-dimensional paddle that would enable gamers with all hand sizes to access the paddles even easier. The new SCUF Sidewinder paddles are angled at approximately 30 degrees and operate by a push-in/ pull-across motion which offer the ideal solution for even more ergonomic paddle game-play”
The paddle concept SCUF invented over 4 years ago is the ONLY real solution for utilizing more of your hand in a safe and ergonomic way. SCUF’s award winning ‘flat’ back paddles offer the perfect solution for all SCUF Xbox 360, PS3 controllers and are a very viable option for many gamers on Xbox One. However the new Sidewinder paddles compensate for the deeper handles and fully cater for all hand shapes and sizes for use on the Xbox ONE SCUF!
Duncan Ironmonger continues “Our ability to listen to the community and our desire to innovate and produce the best possible ergonomic solutions is what drives us and is why such a large percentage of the Pro Gaming community trust and use our products. We truly value our customers and as such will be sending ALL existing SCUF ONE customers a FREE pair of SCUF Sidewinder paddles! We believe in rewarding our loyal customers and as such will be sending these out for them to try over the coming 2-3 weeks – there is no need to contact us to request these!”
Two outside position SCUF Sidewinder paddles now come standard on the SCUF ONE controller. If a customer chooses a four-paddle option, two SCUF ‘flat’ back paddles will be placed on the internal positions of the controller.
Prior to SCUF controller, the middle fingers of the hand were left redundant so SCUF created a way to use them for better performance. SCUF Paddles can increase the use of your hand by up to 100%. By using up to 4 paddles on the underside of your controller, gamers are able to improve their hand movement and perform more advanced moves.
With over 4 patents issued and another 20 pending, Scuf Gaming/ Ironburg specialize in creating gaming accessories to help improve your gaming experience. Duncan Ironmonger continues “Our controller ethos is centered around designing accessories that increase hand use in a SAFE natural way while improving comfort and reducing latency in an intuitive and ergonomic way – we call it SCUFOLOGY!”
