The First Ever Third-Party PS5 Controller Has Been Announced

At long last, the first third-party PS5 controller has been announced. Scuf has introduced its new Reflex, Reflex Pro, and Reflex FPS controllers designed specifically for the PS5.

On the surface, the Scuf Reflex looks nearly identical to the traditional DualSense, but there are plenty of small improvements to be found. The biggest thing the Reflex line adds is a removable set of back control paddles. These back paddles work similarly to those on the Xbox Elite Series 2, but you can reprogram or disable them on the fly via a small rubber button on the back of the controller.

The Reflex and Reflex Pro still feature Sony’s adaptive triggers, but the Reflex FPS swaps them out for instant triggers that actuate with one tap similar to a mouse button.

You also get swappable thumbsticks on the Reflex, allowing you to change them out for long, short, domed, and concave options. The faceplate trim around the thumbsticks is also removable in case you want to swap colors.

Speaking of colors, the Reflex line will be available in white, gray, black, orange, navy blue, and red. However, only the black version will be available at launch with more colorways to be released in the next few weeks and months.

It’s worth noting that technically the Scuf Reflex isn’t the first non-Sony PS5 controller to hit the market – custom shops HexGaming and AimControllers both have launched customized DualSense variants already, but this is the first major company to launch its own PS5 controller thus far. Here’s hoping other manufacturers like Astro will follow suit and bring more options to the market.

The Scuf Reflex line is available now with the baseline controller costing $199. The Scuf Reflex Pro and Reflex FPS retail for $229 and $259, respectively.
