SCUF Granted Another Key Gaming Controller Patent By USPTO

Four years after filing, SCUF gets utility patent for anti-friction rings, taking total to 150 granted & pending patents

ATLANTA, November 1, 2019Scuf Gaming®, innovator and creator of high-performance gaming controllers, through its patent subsidiary, Ironburg Inventions, has protected another key feature of gaming controllers with the recently issued US patent (#10,441,881).

This latest patent protects anti-friction rings in the thumbstick control area. The anti-friction rings have been designed to be customizable and removable, provide reduced friction between the controller and the thumbsticks, and enable the user to swap the thumbstick size, shape and design. Replaceable anti-friction rings are a necessary feature for esports professionals and competitive gamers due to performance advantages the rings offer.

With this new patent, Scuf Gaming now has 96 granted patents and designs, with an additional 54 pending patent applications.

“In 2011, we redefined the way gamers use their controllers by inventing the back control functions, adjustable hair triggers, and trigger stops. Since then, SCUF has been focused on improving several other key functional areas of the controller.” said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO and Founder of Scuf Gaming. “One such area is the thumbstick control region which is essential to peak performance and accuracy. By inventing the replaceable anti-friction rings, SCUF has created a solution to ensure thumbsticks can be swapped out and locked, while providing a low level of friction between the thumbsticks and the controller body. With this patent we are delighted to protect our innovation and investment for another key area of the controller.”

Apex Legends Season 3: Meltdown

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.

How to SCUF: Borderlands 3 Game Guide

Get ready for Mayhem! Borderlands 3, the popular loot ‘n shooter by Gearbox Software and 2K Games has arrived on PS4™, Xbox One™, and PC. Like its predecessors, Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, the new title is packed with new adventures, vault hunters and enemies. Whether you’re playing solo or co-op with friends, be ready for anything that comes your way with your SCUF controller.

Just like selecting the best skills in the skill tree, you can pick the best options for better performance and gameplay with a SCUF. In this guide, we’ll be showing you how to get the most out of your SCUF controller in Borderlands 3 starting with the basics and then with advanced controller customizations.

Step One: The Outer Paddles

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 left paddle is mapped to Jump (X on PS4, A on Xbox) and the right paddle is mapped to Slide/Crouch/Ground Slam (O on PS4, B on Xbox). 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, perform cool trick shots and gain the upperhand by jump sliding and doing damage with the ground slam without taking your thumbs off the thumbsticks.

Step Two: The Inner Paddles

While our SCUF Infinity4PS PRO for PS4 features two paddles, the IMPACT and Vantage for PS4, as well as the Prestige for Xbox One have four paddles available. Having more paddles available means that you can transfer more actions previously used with your thumbs to your back fingers to become faster and keep full control of your aim.

By default, the inner left paddle is mapped to Reload/Use (Square on PS4, X on Xbox) and the inner right paddle is mapped to Next Weapon (Triangle on PS4, Y on Xbox). 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 facebuttons. With regular practice, it can take up to two weeks to be completely used to them. In a Loot ‘n Shooter like Borderlands 3, picking up items quickly and efficiently makes life easier with so many more items to pick up, and paddles vastly improve the experience.

Conquering all four paddles will give you the biggest advantage to quickly Jump, Reload/Use Items, Swap Weapons, and Slide/Crouch/Ground Slam all while keeping your thumb on the thumbstick, ready to aim.

Check out the Configurations below!

Step Three: Configuring the Paddles

Now that you’ve mastered the paddles, let’s start remapping. If your controller is equipped with our remapping feature, you can remap the paddles by using our EMR Mag Key (or just slide the remapping switch into remapping mode 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 slide the remap switch back into play mode on SCUF Vantage) and you’re ready to go. You can tailor your SCUF to your playstyle just like you can select the best vault hunter for your playstyle. Keep an eye out for an article on more Borderlands 3 layouts coming soon!

Step Four: Select the right Thumbsticks for you

Whether you’re an aggressive gamer like Amara, the elemental brawler siren, who runs into battle to pulverize enemies, or you’re a defensive gamer like FL4K, the beastmaster, who stalks his prey and sends out his pets, 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 gamers, 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 gamers, 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.

Step Five: Activate the Trigger Control System

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 Borderlands 3, you will want to have your trigger stops on except when 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.

Step Six: Selecting Other SCUF Options

Digital Tap Bumpers and Digital Tap Triggers

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 the bumpers and triggers and provides a feel similar to a mouse click. This is only recommended for players who only play shooter games.

Vibration

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).

Sax Buttons

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 Action Skill (L1 on PS4) to S1 and Grenades (R1 on PS4 to S2 to start with. Activate your action skill and toss grenades in the middle of battle without moving your fingers off the triggers.

Borderlands 3 PC and PS4 controller

Play

Now that you have customized the different aspects of your controller, 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 wreak havoc on Pandora and the Borderlands!

Whether playing at home, in a professional tournament, or elsewhere, SCUF has become the de-facto controller in the competitive community. This limited-edition controller marks another exciting chapter for both Scuf Gaming and the Call of Duty franchise.”

ATLANTA, September 13, 2019Scuf Gaming®, innovator and creator of high-performance gaming controllers, has partnered with the British influencer and streamer Tom Cassell, better known by his creative name Syndicate, to design a series of SCUF controllers.

Syndicate, a long-term user and admirer of SCUF controllers, has played a key part in the creation process of the new controllers, adding his own personal touch. Each controller spotlights Syndicate’s trademark lion logo, accented with gold and silver tones, and is crafted to improve any player’s gameplay performance and boasts numerous customizable features to fit any playstyle.

I’ve used SCUF controllers since I started playing Call of Duty and uploading my games back in 2011,” Tom Cassell said. “I’m excited to bring my fans a controller that is not only sleek and stylish but can improve their play just like it enhances mine.”

This partnership is a celebration of a joint anniversary: Syndicate launched his first YouTube channel nine years ago, the same year Scuf Gaming invented the SCUF controller. Since then, Syndicate has grown to become one of the most famous internet personalities worldwide, with millions of fans across YouTube, Twitch, and other platforms.

“I’ve known Tom for nine years and throughout this time he has been an avid user of SCUF controllers. We talked about a partnership many times, so to finally create a SCUF Syndicate controller was a memorable milestone for both of us,” said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO of Scuf Gaming. “He understands what SCUF stands for, because he is a user first and a partner second. These new controllers represent that unique, organic relationship, over nine years in the making.”

How To SCUF: Fortnite

Fortnite, the colorful free to play battle royale, features unique building mechanics, creative challenges, and intense competitive gameplay. To win, you will need to have the skills and ability to outgun your opponent as well as seamlessly swap between different weapons and building options.

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.

Getting Started

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.

Paddle Configuration

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!

Thumbsticks

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.

  1. Concave thumbsticks are designed for more movement control.
  2. Domed thumbsticks are designed for more accuracy.
  3. Short thumbsticks are designed for quicker movement speed
  4. 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.

Fortnite PC and PS4 controller

Trigger Systems

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

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).

Fortnite Xbox One controller

Sax Buttons

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.

Game Settings

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

Fortnite Pro PS4 controller

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!

Apex Legends Season 2: Battle Charge Preview

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

apex_legend_wattson

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!
