What you need to know
- Scuf's Vantage controller line for PS4 and PC is getting a new model.
- It has been built to be more comfortable and deliver better gaming performance.
- Scuf is also making a limited edition Call of Duty: Modern Warfare SCUF Vantage 2 controller.
I had the pleasure of reviewing the SCUF Vantage controller and found it to be one of the better third-party products on the market, which makes sense given the company's pedigree. Scuf wasn't done perfecting it, though, and has just announced a new iteration in the SCUF Vantage line.
Upon first glance it doesn't look like much has changed in the SCUF Vantage 2, and it does still feature a lot of the customization options from the previous iteration like the four back paddles and two side action buttons. Where it bests its counterpart is that it will now support a new customization app coming this fall so that you can configure how you play with ease. The SCUF Vantage 2 has also been made with upgraded materials and components for added comfort and performance.
These enhanced features include:
- Improved High-Performance Grip
- Upgraded trigger functions
- PC Customization App for Windows
- Improved button haptics
- Refined tactile textures in the faceplate, trigger, bumper, and Sax buttons
- Enhanced USB connection system
Like its predecessor, SCUF will offer both wired and wireless models. This time around the company is also releasing a limited edition SCUF Vantage 2 controller for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. This one comes with a unique faceplate design that features a blue tactical map. The Modern Warfare logo is also etched into the Touch Pad and featured on the back paddles, while the D-pad has a tactical red cross printed onto it. Even the vibration modules have been customized with artwork inspired by a sniper scope. Players that purchase this controller will receive an exclusive in-game sniper scope charm.
The SCUF Vantage 2 Modern Warfare controller will be available for $220. The wireless and wired will cost you $200 and $170, respectively. They will all be available on Scuf's website and GameStop, and will begin shipping on October 14, 2019.
The Vantage line gets even better.
If you already loved the previous SCUF Vantage, odds are you'll love this one even more. The company kept all of the customization features and upgraded it with materials and components for added comfort and performance.
