BACKGROUND:– Until the SCUF was invented 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 is a safe, ergonomic way. We understand the limitations of a normal controller for Pro -gamers who need to control over 20 functions in gameplay and using only 2 fingers and 2 thumbs is limiting at the Top level – one size can not fit all for the Elite 10%. It can restrict the advancement of play, the games and their enjoyment, hence why some Pro-players were 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 become the best gamer they can be.
SCUF controllers have become very well known in the Pro Gaming Community, especially after the most recent event, COD Championships in Los Angeles where 126 of the 128 Pro-players competing were using a SCUF Controller.
