SCUF Gaming today has introduced a brand-new pair of controllers for the Xbox Series X | S, called the Instinct and Instinct Pro. Both were designed specifically for the Xbox Series X | S, and offer players a certain level of control customization that is bound to enhance the gameplay for just about anyone.
Like all previous SCUF controllers, the Instinct and Instinct Pro are meant to give you an advantage in any game you’re playing. So if you like fast-paced shooters, then you’ll love the Pro model with its unique feature set and high-performance grip for longer play sessions.
Both controllers are also highly customizable in style. With loads of options for tweaking the controller’s looks so you can add your own personal touch.
The SCUF Instinct and Instinct Pro have one-tap remappable profiles
There are a lot of really great games out there these days. Spanning a very wide range of genres. SCUF wanted to give players a way to set their controllers up to match the type of game they’re playing.
The solution? Remappable profiles that you can switch on the fly with a single press of a button. So you can go from playing a shooter to an RPG and swap to profiles for those game types with a quick tap. You won’t need an app installed to activate these either. After you configure them, simply tap the profile button and it’ll automatically bump you to the saved settings for that profile in an instant.
The Profile Switch feature allows up to three saved profiles for different games. And all of these are saved locally on the controller. Allowing you to toggle through them at your leisure.
Both controllers also come with the patented paddle control system that SCUF controllers are known for. There are four paddles on the back of each controller. And, these can be mapped to replicate the ABXY buttons.
The Pro model controller comes with new adjustable instant triggers
A feature you will only get with the Instinct Pro is the new adjustable instant triggers. You can turn these on with a dedicated switch just like with the profiles. So you can toggle between the regular triggers and the instant triggers quickly.
SCUF says the instant triggers act like a mouse click. Allowing for rapid one-tap motion that eliminates the trigger pull. These are ideal for first-person shooter games, and will be the perfect companion to upcoming titles like Halo Infinite and Battlefield 2042.
Both controllers also come with a redesigned set of thumbsticks. Which come with improved grip added durability for long-lasting play. The thumbsticks have a self-lubricating ring too. That will help them move around more smoothly.
In addition to all the other features, both controllers are wireless with improved dynamic latency input. You can also transition them to a wired setup if you want to lower the latency input even more.
You can already buy both controllers from the SCUF website, starting at $169.99 for the Instinct. The Instinct Pro will start at $199.99. Keep in mind that the price of each controller can also go up depending on if you add any style customizations.
