The SCUF Vantage is a feature rich licensed PS4 controller that pushes the boundaries of innovation and as such we will occasionally provide free enhancements and bug fixes.
Firmware Update 1.1 improves:
- Thumbstick responsiveness, addressing "drift" and unintended thumbstick movement.
- Bluetooth responsiveness.
