KontrolFreek partner with Bungie for exclusive Destiny 2 thumbsticks

More On: Destiny 2

Performance thumbsticks, while not a necessity, can be a nice addition to your controller. Back in the old PS3 days I used to swear by the L2 and R2 extensions because, as good as a control the old Dualshock was, those buttons were terribly designed. The first pair of extensions I ever bought came with some thumbstick covers and while it didn't make me a convert, I did enjoy playing with them. There is a non-negligible element of greater control, but I've never been convinced it really lends a competitive edge.

That might be the perfect space for KontrolFreek to debut their latest pair of Performance Thumbsticks, a collaboration with Bungie for the upcoming release of Destiny 2. If Performance Thumbsticks are only nice to haves, then perhaps the stylings of thumbsticks molded like Ghosts are enough to tip things over the edge? If thumbsticks are actual necessities then why not enjoy some style as well?

From the press release:

  • Designed to enhance both the PvP and PvE experiences in the upcoming Destiny 2, KontrolFreek’s latest thumbstick features the iconic “Ghost” design and a hybrid thumb surface for increased comfort and grip when trying to take the Tower back from Ghaul.
  • The mid-rise thumbstick set adds only 8.6mm to OEM sticks for minimal adjustment time while maximizing quickness and control when accuracy is critical.
  • Destiny 2: Ghost is available for PS4 and XONE at KontrolFreek.com.

So whatever itch you might have: for thumbsticks, for style, for love of Destiny? If these scratch your itch maybe it worth checking them out. Hit "Read More" below for additional pics.
