Best Xbox One Controller 2021: Game Controllers, Fight Sticks and More

Gaming on the Xbox One is usually perfectly served by the controller that came with your console. The Xbox One controller is simply one of the best controllers there is – for Xbox or otherwise. But, there are more than a few reasons to consider picking yourself up something a bit different. If you got the Xbox One when it originally launched, you'll find the modern controller has made some minor improvements (including Bluetooth). Microsoft even has an upgraded version of its controller in the form of the Elite Series 2 controller.

As great as the stock controller is, comfort can still come into play for many of us. The shape and size of a controller matters for long-term comfort, and you may find a different controller lets you get a better feel through lengthy play sessions. This is especially true for hands that are bigger or smaller than average. Then there's the fact that the Xbox controller is built to be universal, so any purpose-built controller can have an advantage in certain games. Flying games can benefit greatly from a flight stick just as racing games and fighting games feel great with racing wheels and fight sticks, respectively.

So, to help you find a controller that can get the job done for whatever games you want to play, we've rounded up top contenders in a variety of categories – and click here to find them in the UK.

TL;DR – These are the Best Xbox One Controllers:

1. Microsoft Xbox Elite Series 2

Best Xbox Controller

The basic Xbox controllers might be technically perfect for gaming on the Xbox One, but even Microsoft realized there was more that could be done. Enter the Xbox Elite controller. That took the excellent form of the standard controller and introduced new rear controls and some swappable components. The Xbox Elite Series 2 (read our review) just goes even further.

With the Xbox Elite Series 2 controller, you get a solid controller with a bit of heft to it and plenty of grip. The controller offers your typical controls along with a swappable D-Pad, rear paddle buttons, tunable triggers, and swappable thumbsticks that attach magnetically (careful if you have pets that like to steal). With Microsoft's software, you can remap the controls on the Elite Series 2 as you please. And, with Bluetooth connectivity, you can also use this with your phone or computer for Xbox Cloud Gaming. Naturally, at this premium price point, the controller also has some nice extras, like a sturdy case and pogo-pin charging stand.

2. Xbox Core Controller

The Next Best Xbox Controller

Xbox Core Controller

The Xbox Elite Series 2 might be the best controller, but its price and features may be a little more than you bargained for. So, if we were to look past that premium controller, the Xbox Core Controller (read our review) would be the next best. It comes with a familiar but remodeled design. It’ll feel just right in your hands if you loved the original Xbox One controllers, but it has a bit more grip. Microsoft managed this by making the side grips and even the triggers and bumpers more textured.

The redesign has also reached the D-Pad, which now has more of the concave stylings of one of the Elite Series controller’s alternate D-Pads. The Xbox Core Controller has also entered the modern age of connectivity. You won’t have to deal with a weak and finicky micro USB cable again as the controller now uses a USB-C port. It also has a standard 3.5mm headset jack built in. Another huge perk of the Xbox Core Controller is its flexibility. You can use it with your Xbox One, a new Xbox Series X/S, and with a ton of other devices over Bluetooth or wired connections. Though it already comes in a handful of different colors, you can also get creative with the Xbox Design Lab controller customizer.

3. Razer Wolverine V2

Best Third-Party Xbox Controller

Razer Wolverine V2

The Xbox Elite Series 2 controller may offer the most advanced functionality alongside seamless integration with the Xbox console, but the Razer Wolverine V2 (see our review) is a close alternative. You’ll save a bit of money going with Razer Wolverine V2 because it doesn’t offer a wireless connection or include a battery for operation. That may make some gamers shy away, but wired connectivity also provides low latency for a competitive edge, and you’ll never get that low-battery notification in the middle of a game. Plus, it makes for a lighter controller.

The Wolverine V2 puts some solid capabilities in your hands. In addition to offering pleasantly tactile face buttons that improve on the mushy ones that the standard Xbox control includes, the Wolverine V2 also includes an extra set of shoulder buttons to give your trigger fingers more control options. Given you’re likely already used to inputting controls with your index fingers, the learning curve for these added shoulder buttons probably won’t be as steep as it is for the rear paddle buttons found on the Xbox Elite controllers. Razer also includes a toggle for trigger locks to shorten their travel — handy for FPS games.

4. Razer Dragon Ball FighterZ Atrox Arcade Stick

Best Xbox One Fight Stick

Razer Dragon Ball FighterZ Atrox Arcade Stick

The best way to play fighting games is with a fight stick and the best one for the Xbox One is the Razer Atrox Arcade Stick. This premium fight stick offers some incredible build quality with high-end Sanwa components. You can find this stick in different styles, but we're a fan of this Dragon Ball FighterZ model that adds some extra flair to the design without trading off the quality of any of the components.

Of course, if you prefer using a different stick, other buttons, or just don't like the box art, users can open up this fight stick and change virtually every part of it.

5. PowerA Fusion

Best Xbox One Fight Pad Controller

PowerA Fusion

Thumbsticks sometimes just don't cut it when you want to play fighting games. The more instantaneos control of a good D-pad can help a lot, and the PowerA Fusion has just what you need. This fightpad delivers a streamlined design to let your hands focus on the buttons that really matter in fighting games.

On the left-hand side, you'll find just the D-pad. PowerA does include a three-way switch, allowing the D-pad to emulate the Xbox controller's thumbsticks and D-pad, so you shouldn't run into issues navigating in games. The right side keeps the ABXY buttons where you need them and throws in the right and left bumper buttons, so you can mash away in fighting games. PowerA also includes a long, wired cable that firmly clips into the back of the controller for a secure attachment, while a quick-release point near the cable's connection point with the Xbox can help ensure no one accidentally yanks your console off your media center.

6. Xbox Adaptive Controller

Best Customizable Xbox One Controller

Xbox Adaptive Controller

The Xbox Adaptive Controller is specially designed for gamers with limited mobility. On its own, the Adaptive controller only gives you three inputs with an oversized D-Pad and two massive A and B buttons that users can hit with their palm, elbow, foot, or what have you.

However, the Xbox Adaptive Controller isn't meant to be used on its own. Rather it has 19 3.5mm jacks along its back, each of which corresponds to a single command triggered on the normal Xbox One controller. Users can plug in their own accessibility controllers—which includes a massive variety of buttons, foot pedals, switches, joysticks and more—and turn the Xbox Adaptive Controller into a central control hub.

7. Hyperkin Duke Wired Controller

Best Xbox Controller for Xbox One

Thanks to Microsoft's robust backwards compatibility, you can play a huge library of original Xbox titles. If you're like us and want to play the game as close to the original experience as you can, you need the Duke.

The Hyperkin Duke might not be made by Microsoft, but it's been officially licensed by Xbox. This controller emulates the entire original Xbox Controller experience from its large, rotund shape to the almost excessive resistance on the thumbsticks. Of course, this blast from the past controller keeps the old-school black and white buttons to complete the experience.

8. Thrustmaster TMX Racing Wheel

Best Xbox One Racing Wheel

When you're really getting heavy into a racing game like Forza, F1, or Dirt, it can quickly become tedious trying to feel like you're really driving the hyper-realistic cars on those photorealistic tracks when you're just holding a simple Xbox controller in your hands. That's where a racing wheel comes in, helping to fully immerse you in your game, and Thrustmaster makes many of the best

The Thrustmaster TMX Racing Wheel is a spectacular option for anyone looking to dive deep into racing sims with a wheel that doesn't just look the part but also feels the part. The Thrustmaster TMX is a force feedback racing wheel, so you're going to feel the road in your hands when you try taking a turn at high speeds. It also has a 900-degree rotation with a high level of sensitivity, giving you finer control over your steering than a cheap wheel would. The controller includes the force feedback base, an 11-inch wheel with paddle shifters, and foot pedals.

9. Thrustmaster T-Flight HOTAS One

Best Xbox Flight Stick

If you're aiming to be top gun in your favorite piloting games, whether that be Ace Combat or the upcoming Star Wars Squadrons, you'll probably want to have your hands on a flight stick instead of your Xbox One controller. To that end, the Thrustmaster T-Flight HOTAS One is your best bet. This controller gives you that authentic hands-on-throttle-and-stick feel with both elements in one fairly affordable package.

The Thrustmaster T-Flight HOTAS One physically connects the throttle and joystick with a sturdy base, but they can also be pulled apart and remain connected via a tether. This lets you position each element however you like in your gaming setup. You can even adjust the resistance of the stick to your liking. The controllers offer up fives axes of control as well as 14 action buttons, a mulitdirectional hat switch, and a rapid fire trigger. So, when you're ready to get flying, this controller will do the job.

Where to Get the Best Xbox One Controller in the UK

It should be incredibly easy to pick up each and every one of the Xbox controllers we've mentioned on this list. You'll be looking at your standard tech retailers in the UK, with sites such as Amazon, Game, and Currys PC World being the typical go-to for console accessories.

Xbox and PC Compatibility

The biggest advantage Xbox One controllers have over the DualShock 4 PS4 controller is they work wirelessly with your with your Windows PC right out of the box. No extra software or fiddling needed.

While it's true most PC games are best enjoyed using a gaming keyboard and high-quality gaming mouse, an ever-increasing number of games and menu systems are designed around the controller instead of the traditional WASD control scheme PC gamers know and love.

With an Xbox One controller, you just plug it into your Windows computer and you're good to go. The PS4 controllers also work with PC but require a bit more effort. However, not all games will perfectly map their controls onto a DualShock 4, so an Xbox One controller is definitely your safest bet. Controller compatibility also makes swapping between Windows Play Anywhere and Xbox Game Pass for PC games like Cuphead, Forza Horizon 4, Gears of War 4 and more much easier.

To use an Xbox One controller on your PC requires you have Windows. There are Linux and Mac solutions, too, but they require more work. Getting your Xbox One controller up and running on PC is as simple as using a Micro USB cable to connect it to your gaming laptop or gaming PC. You can also grab a Microsoft Xbox One wireless controller adapter or if your computer has Bluetooth, you can pair it as you'd pair any other Bluetooth device.

Windows might take a second or two to update the drivers, but that's it. You just hook your Xbox One controller to a PC and you're good to go from there. Keep in mind, if you move back and forth between PC and Xbox One, you'll need to pair the controller whenever you switch between the two.

Take Control

Of course, Xbox One traditional-style controllers are pretty great, and our guide to the best should help you in most gaming situations. But what about specialty controllers?

For example, are you playing fighting games on a regular controller? If so, you're doing yourself an enormous disservice. It's possible to practice and get really good with one of these controllers, but for dominance in the fighting game community, you really need to pick yourself up a dedicated fight stick.

For driving games, like the excellent Forza Horizon 4, you're going to want a racing wheel. It's up to you to decide if you want to go all-in with dedicated pedals, gear shift, and racing chair. Same with flight sticks. You can make the experience as immersive as your budget allows.

The best part about buying a dedicated controller like a fight stick or racing wheel is they have the same compatibility as the traditional Xbox One controllers. Your fight stick will work on your PC the same as it works on your Xbox One X, same as the others.

The Best Xbox Controllers with Paddles at a Glance

Xbox controllers with paddles are becoming a must-have for console and PC gamers looking to have an edge over the competition, especially in first-person shooters. The controller paddles give the user up to 4 additional, configurable buttons located on the back of the controller.

How Do Paddles Help?

Paddles may seem like a strange thing to add to your controller, and many may not understand the advantages of having controller paddles. The two main advantages of having a controller with paddles is gaining the ability to remap your controls and quick access to button controls without lifting your thumbs from the analog sticks.

If you are familiar with keyboard configuration settings available for PC games, then you will understand the concept of having remappable controls. Having this level of customization can make games more enjoyable as you have the ability to move any button action to a paddle button if you don’t like its current position. With configuration presets available on some of the available controllers, you can create consistency in controls when switching games.

Many competitive players buy Xbox controllers with paddles for the quick access button presses without the need to lift there thumbs from the analog stick. This creates a competitive advantage as there is less delay between aiming and simulataniously crouching, reloading or any other in game action that is needed in the moment. Due to this advantage, many tournaments have banned the use of controllers with paddles.

If you play a lot of single-player games, you may still find that paddles are helpful. Having quick access to your buttons without the need to lift your thumbs can make platformer’s and action games more enjoyable. There are also tons of great games out there that have less than stellar or inconsistent controls, having additional back buttons can greatly increase your ability to enjoy a game that suffers from bad button optimization.

Are They Hard to Install?

They are not hard to install at all; most of these controllers come with easy to use tech to make mapping your buttons a breeze. All you need to do is hook them up to your computer to begin the process. There is no detailed programming or coding that goes into mapping buttons unless you’re trying to do something creative yourself. If you want to buy the Xbox Elite controller, then Microsoft provides the tools you need to map all the extra buttons directly in the Xbox operating system. While mapping controls may feel a bit more inconvenient than the plug and play approach, most gamers will find that they only need to configure their controller to their preferences once and it’s worth the effort.

Razer Wolverine Ultimate Xbox Controller

Razer Wolverine Tournament Edition

The Razer Wolverine Tournament Edition includes six bumpers and triggers with built-in paddles.

Check price on Amazon

Almost every gamer can recognize the beloved Razer brand, which has been making premium game gear for years. To help you optimize your Xbox play style, the brand made the Wolverine line, which features the Tournament and Ultimate models. Like the other entries on the list, the controller comes with several different buttons so that you can mix and match your favorite physical set-up. What sets it apart, though, is it’s six bumpers and triggers, and it’s built-in paddles that will let you have every button combination in your hands. You can even remap the buttons as you play or by using the special razor mapping program included with your purchase.

If you like customization, then you will also be happy to know that, like most Razer products, this one glows and can be customized. The Wolverine line can be used on both Xbox and PC. The controller doesn’t feature Bluetooth and instead uses a wire to give you quick input to your preferred gaming platform. If anything happens to the controller, it will be covered by Razer’s excellent customer service and a one-year warranty.

Xbox Elite Controller

Xbox Elite Controller

The original Xbox Elite controller comes with adjustable analog sticks, two different D-pads, six thumbsticks, and, most importantly, four different paddles.

Check price on Amazon

The Xbox One Elite is the first edition of the official controller you can get. It comes in a nice carrying case with several different paddles and buttons for you to choose from. The controller, like most official models, is completely wireless for Xbox users but does not use Bluetooth technology, meaning you will need to use a wire to connect the controller to your computer.

The Elite controller comes with adjustable analog sticks, two different D-pads, six thumbsticks, and, most importantly, four different paddles. In all, the controller allows you over thirty different customization options so that you can make the controller feel perfect for your hands. You will also be covered by a one-year Microsoft warranty to ensure that the buttons don’t prematurely wear out from heavy play.

Should I buy the Xbox Elite Series 1 or 2?

You may be wondering if you should upgrade or just buy the original Xbox Elite series 1. There are quite a few differences between the two, and the newer Series 2 Elite controller is by far the superior model. One of the first things you may notice is how you no longer have to buy AA batteries for the Series 2. The Series 1 allowed you to swap out batteries, which admittedly could get a little expensive for games. The Series 2 has an incredible charge that can last up to 40 hours; if it does run out of power, it can simply be plugged in to charge off of your computer or your console for continued gaming.

The Series 2 also offers BlueTooth support that allows it more easily to pair with your PC. This is a huge plus, as many gamers don’t want to play games while tethered by a wire. If that’s not enough, then keep in mind that the Series 2 is much more durable than the Series 1. This means that the Series 2 is more likely to survive for the long haul. This is especially important since Series 1 can now only be bought second hand, which comes with some risk.

The Series 2 is also far more customizable and more responsive. This gives a huge edge to gamers who choose to play competitively with the Series 2 controller. The Series 1 still works great, especially for those who have only used a standard controller, but gamers who have used both will really notice the difference between the button input and ease of customization. There is also the fact that the Series 1 has tons of known manufacturing issues that make it long term use questionable at best.

Many players have noted that the grip is also far more comfortable for the Series 2 and that the buttons are of a much higher quality. If you also get three profiles to choose from, which is more than the two that the Series 1 offers. If you don’t mind the battery being non-replaceable, then honestly, there is no reason you should go hunting for a used Series 1 over buying the Series 2 new and being covered by the Microsoft warranty.

The best Xbox One controllers for 2021

If you own an Xbox One, you’ll eventually find yourself shopping for a new Xbox One controller. Maybe you’re trying to replace one you smashed in a fit of rage while playing Dark Souls, or you’re looking for a good controller for your co-op partner. No matter the situation, picking up another controller is an inevitable part of owning a gaming system. However, in recent years, the market has become saturated with excellent Xbox One gamepads, making it difficult to determine which one is the best purchase.

Whether you’re looking for something cheap, powerful, or game-specific, here are the best Xbox One controllers available in 2021.

Xbox One Wireless Controller

Xbox One wireless controller

The standard controller that comes with every Xbox One console also happens to be one of the best you can get for the system. The basic layout of the controller is relatively similar to the Xbox 360 controller, with offset analog sticks that work perfectly for shooters, sports games, and everything in between. The bumpers on the top have been improved since the first version of the controller was released, making them easier to press, and the triggers are wide enough for hands of any size to pull them.

It’s certainly simple, but the Xbox One Wireless Controller is a workhorse. Two AA batteries can easily last for weeks, compared to the PlayStation 4’s DualShock 4, which must be charged regularly. The controller also can be made into a wired controller by attaching a Micro USB cable, giving you less latency for sports or fighting games.

Important note: While this model is the standard controller for the Xbox One, Microsoft has released an updated “Core” version for the Series X with a more durable design, USB-C connection, and new share button. It’s entirely compatible with the Xbox One and, if you are looking for an upgrade, an excellent alternative (although you will need a USB-C connection for connecting it directly to a console).

Xbox Design Lab Controller

The plain black or white designs for Xbox One controllers aren’t the most exciting things in the world, but you don’t have to settle for anything less than a fully customized gamepad. The Xbox Design Lab allows you to create your own controller, with everything from the triggers to the analog sticks coming in an assortment of different colors. If you want to make your controller look like Waluigi, with a purple front and yellow back, you totally can, or you can go with something more sleek and subtle.

Previous controllers started at $65, with additional options for personalization. Currently, the Design Lab is working on a new model that will be available sometime in 2021, so sign up for alerts if your heart is set on this kind of customization.

Xbox One Elite Controller Series 2

Xbox One Elite Controller Series 2

One of the world’s most expensive controllers has proven popular enough to warrant a second version. Revealed at E3 2019, this new version builds on the original in almost every way — but we all know the biggest improvement is the shift to a USB-C port for charging its 40-hour battery. It can even double as a wired controller if you’re particularly sensitive to wireless lag.

The Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 comes with interchangeable thumbsticks, D-pads, and paddles, plus it has the ability to adjust the tension of its analog inputs for things like faster trigger speeds and weightier movement and aiming. They even redesigned the rubberized grip, a common point of concern on the original version. If you’ve ever wanted to toss your original controller in the trash and spend an extra $100 for some extra buttons, the Xbox One Elite Controller Series 2 is for you.

Razer Wolverine Ultimate

On the third-party side, Razer’s Wolverine Ultimate controller offers just as many customization options as the Xbox Elite Controller, plus a little extra style for those interested in flashing lights. Bundled with interchangeable analog sticks and directional pads as well as remappable bumpers and triggers, you can create and save more than 500 different customized setups depending on the game you’re playing, and the controller’s sensitivity levels can be adjusted to give you the same level of customization you’d expect on a mouse. If you’re a fan of vibration, you can increase it in both the Impulse Trigger and the standard rumble motors, which should make your racing or shooting even more immersive.

Want a little more flair while you frag? The Wolverine Ultimate also includes Razer’s Chroma lighting, giving you gorgeous effects that can be changed based on your preferences or, if you’re a streamer, based on your audience’s reactions.

Scuf Prestige

Scuf Prestige Controller

Scuf makes some of the most comfortable controllers on the market today. Their elite controllers are similar to the standard Xbox One’s, but it definitely feels different when picked it up. The smooth plastic and subtle yet effective backside features make holding the Scuf a dream come true. It also has an interchangeable faceplate and built-in rechargeable battery, which will last around 30 hours. You can change the analog sticks and faceplate and overall customize the way these controllers look fairly easily. What’s great is that the Scuf Prestige controller is also magnificently light, weighing in at only 267 grams.

What really makes these controllers stand out isn’t the customization, light weight, or comfort holding it. Rather, Scuf has managed to find a way to make the four back paddles the most comfortable to reach out of all the other controllers. The bumpers have been redesigned on this controller to be more durable and have more points of contact. This actually has eliminated the issues the Xbox Elite Controller faced and, to some degree, the regular Xbox controller. Games that are bumper-heavy won’t wear the paddles out even after long, vigorous use.

Hori Fighting Commander Octa

The standard Xbox One controller is great for many games, but it struggles with 2D fighting games — the default layout of the buttons and the directional pad aren’t ideal for the quick movements needed in the genre. To solve that, Hori made the Fighting Commander line, with the most recent Octa model perfect for both Xbox One and Series X. It’s a controller that bears a remarkable resemblance to a certain Sega controller from back in the early 1990s, with D-Pad, joystick, and shoulder setups made for gaming. The Octa also is wired, which is necessary for serious fighting game events.

The configuration of the Fighting Commander is a little different than other controllers, with the RB, RT, LB, and LT buttons all located on the right side and two extra buttons included on the left side. The curved design of the back is more ergonomic than the controllers of yesteryear, but it should feel perfect for anyone who played Mortal Kombat on Genesis. The controller won’t set you back much, either, costing less than all other options on our list, and it’s much smaller than a traditional full-sized fight stick.

Xbox Adaptive Controller

Playing on a traditional controller can be an extremely difficult or even impossible task for players with physical disabilities. The Xbox Adaptive Controller aims to serve this group of players by providing a fully customizable hub for accessibility devices. Every button on the standard Xbox One controller is represented by an input port on the side of the Xbox Adaptive Controller, and users can use 3.5 mm or USB devices to control these functions in whatever way serves them best.

If more than one person in your household uses the Adaptive Controller and they have different needs, you can also customize profiles and switch between them on the fly. The controller comes with a 9-foot cable to charge its battery, and it’s also compatible with Windows 10 PC games.

PowerA Enhanced Wired Controller for Xbox

If you and your friends tend to run through a lot of controllers, you know that replacing them can get expensive. This PowerA model is an affordable option, less than half the cost of a traditional Xbox One controller while still providing all the utility you expect. It also includes updates to the Xbox controller design like a share button, and has a surprisingly useful little dial for game audio and muting chat when you are with a team. The gripping materials also help you keep precision — and it comes in a wide variety of colors and patterns to pick from. Keep in mind that it is wired, so it will need to stay closer to the console (something that may also help controllers last longer).

Xbox Wireless Controller — Daystrike Camo Special Edition

Periodically, Microsoft offers special editions of its Xbox One controllers for fans who are looking for something a little extra. We particularly like this 2021 design that features red, gray, and black camo. It’s a nifty design that goes well with just about everything, and includes all the latest controller upgrades like textured grips on the triggers and bumpers, hybrid D-pad, a share button, and more. Everything works with the Xbox One, and if you are ever ready to upgrade to the Series X then full compatibility is assured for that model as well!
