On fighting games, achieve easier combos using our interchangeable Control Disc. Perform passes and shoot faster in sports games like FIFA.


Why has SCUF designed two connectivity modes for the SCUF Vantage?

SCUF have created a Wired mode for the SCUF Vantage to offer the quickest connection to the game (1ms latency) which we recommend when playing competitively.

The Wireless/Wired model offers the best of both worlds.


Can I use audio functions while in wireless mode?

The wired and competitive mode of the SCUF Vantage has been designed to be a fully wired experience to offer the quickest connection to the game. The wireless mode has been designed as a wire-free mode. While playing in wireless mode, we recommend the use of a wireless headset, so you can truly enjoy the perks of wireless play.


If I change the mappings of my Sax buttons and Paddles, will they be saved?

When remapping the functions assigned to your Sax buttons and Paddles, they will be saved into your controller. Turning off the controller or your console will not erase your settings. To go back to the initial configuration, just use the remapping function to map the default mappings.

Default mappings:
S1 (left Sax button): L2
S2 (right Sax button): R2
P1 (left outside paddle): O
P2 (left inside paddle): Triangle
P3 (right inside paddle): Square
P4 (right outside paddle): X
