Get them while they're hot: the best Xbox Elite series 2 controller price we've found is $169.99 ($10 off) at B&H. While not a massive discount, this popular controller rarely sees a discount at all, and it's brand new, so act quick if you want one. The series 2 controller is a refinement of many of the ideas we saw introduced with the original iteration of the Xbox Elite controller, which added a bevy of customization options to what many people consider one of the best PC controllers available.
Just like its older sibling, the series 2 features adjustable trigger locks, allowing you to fine-tune the amount of travel distance in your left and right triggers, but the series 2 adds an additional step, allowing for a long, medium or short pull on either trigger. While the shoulder buttons and ubiquitous back paddles remain unchanged, Xbox has done some interesting things to the thumbsticks on the series 2 controller. The original Elite controller allowed you to change the height of individual thumbsticks, but the Series 2 controller also allows you to fine-tune the resistance in either thumbstick, offering you more precise control whether you use a soft touch or prefer a controller that fights back. Our Xbox Elite controller series 2 review explains more.
The D-pad largely remains unchanged as well, giving you the option between a traditional 4-way design, or an 8-way directional disc with beveled edges. But, in what is possibly the biggest change between the 2 controllers, the series 2 features an integrated rechargeable battery that can be juiced up directly via its USB-C connection, or by seating it in the included clamshell carrying case which doubles as a charging station.
For our readers across the pond, Amazon UK is also offering this popular controller for £149 (£10 off). This is a prime time to invest in the controller that we said "ruined all other controllers" in our review.
