Best Custom Controllers for PlayStation 4 in 2022

When you get tired of looking at the plain black controllers that come with your PlayStation 4, it might be time to start looking at custom controller designs. They can add a brand new taste or flavor to your gaming experience. Best of all, when it comes to PS4 DualShock and other third-party controllers, there are so many options to choose from.

More control over your controllers

In regards to functionality, the AR-OWL C1 controller (opens in new tab) steals the show. Not only was a lot of thought concerning the comfort of your hands put into the design, but the company also made sure the sensitivity of the buttons, triggers, and analogs were more sensitive than your average DualShock. This makes playing games like Fallout 4 and Call of Duty that much easier to play because it registered even the slightest movements for the best sneak abilities. Plus it's much cheaper than the competition.

For those looking for something a bit cooler, pick up the Illuminating Skulls Blue controller (opens in new tab) from ModdedZone. The form factor is identical to that of a normal DualShock controller so you'll feel right at home, plus it looks pretty badass with glowing blue skulls. How can you say no?
