SCUF unveils its newest secret weapon for any aspiring competitive gamer
ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Scuf Gaming, innovator and creator of high-performance gaming controllers, today announced the SCUF Vantage 2 and the SCUF Vantage 2 Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® officially licensed PlayStation®4 controllers, also compatible with PC. The SCUF Vantage 2 is an evolution of its game-changing predecessor, SCUF’s most feature rich controller to date. Like all SCUF controllers, it completely redefines the way you use your hand and bridges the skill gap between controllers, and keyboard and mouse.
The SCUF Vantage 2 features six customizable inputs (four back paddles, and two side-mounted action – Sax — buttons). Back functions have become one of the key determining factors in competitive gaming and enable players to get more use out of their hands to match the increasing complexity of today’s most popular games, including battle royale titles. With even better ergonomic grip and upgraded components, a new Customization App and enhanced firmware, the Vantage 2 allow players to unlock their full potential.
“Like every innovative company, we at Scuf Gaming are tirelessly working toward something greater,” said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO Founder of Scuf Gaming. “The original Vantage was our most feature rich and technologically advanced controller ever made. The Vantage 2 has been designed to finesse and improve upon our first release. We looked at every component, every feature, and most importantly, took feedback from our professional players and customers to advance and refine this controller.”
The Vantage 2 comes equipped with additional newly enhanced features including:
- 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
The Vantage 2 delivers the same ergonomic shape and asymmetrical thumbstick configuration as the original. Vantage controllers significantly increase hand use and control with the addition of over 15 customizable functions, including:
- The patented paddle control system
- Hair triggers and adjustable trigger stops
- Removable trigger extenders
- Quick-access remapping switch
- Removable faceplate and removable vibration modules
- Advanced audio control
- Customizable thumbsticks, D-pads, and more
Expanding beyond functional benefits, the Vantage 2 is also available with a limited-edition Modern Warfare® design. Equipped with unique customization items inspired by military equipment, it is a must-have for any Call of Duty® fan. Featuring an exclusive interchangeable faceplate design inspired by a topographic map, the controller also boasts removable vibration modules with marks to mimic sniper scopes, a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare logo on the Touch Pad, and more. Players that purchase the SCUF Vantage 2 Modern Warfare will receive an in-game sniper scope charm for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
“Nine years ago, we invented the SCUF to enable gamers to improve their gameplay on frenetic shooter games like Call of Duty, so this is a community we are both passionate and very engaged with,” said Ironmonger. “We’ve equipped countless players with the high-performance controllers they need to win. Whether playing at home, in a professional tournament, or elsewhere, SCUF has become the de-facto controller in the competitive community. This limited-edition controller marks another exciting chapter for both Scuf Gaming and the Call of Duty franchise.”
The SCUF Vantage 2, starting at $169.95 for the wired only model, and $199.95 for the wireless & wired model, is available for pre-order in North America starting today on scuf.co/vantage2 and GameStop. The SCUF Vantage 2 Modern Warfare starting at $219.95 is also available for pre-order at scuf.co/vantage2mw and GameStop.
