Xbox Elite Wireless Controller

The world’s most advanced controller.

Improved performance and fit

The Xbox Elite controller adapts to your hand size and play style with configurations that can improve accuracy, speed and reach with thumbsticks of different shapes and sizes. Swap between a variety of metal thumbsticks and D-pads for personalized control and ergonomics.

Interchangeable paddles

The Xbox Elite Wireless Controller has four slots for interchangeable paddles that you can attach or remove without any tools. The paddles give your fingers more control, so you don’t have to take your thumbs off the thumbstick to execute intricate jump, aim and shoot combinations. With the app*, you can assign a wide range of inputs to each paddle.

Hair trigger locks

With the flip of the Hair Trigger Locks, you can fire faster and save valuable time with each trigger pull. Hair Trigger Locks stop the trigger movement after the shot and get you ready for the next one. Simply flip the switch again to get back to full-range trigger motion, or use the app to further fine-tune your settings.

Designed for performance

Every detail is designed to meet the demands of competitive gamers: low-friction, reinforced rings around each thumbstick minimise wear and provide buttery-smooth action while the rubberised diamond grip gives the controller a substantial feel and added stability. The enhanced grip allows you to hold the controller with less effort. The soft-touch finish on the top case provides a luxurious feel.
