KontrolFreek and Atlanta FaZe - A Match Made in Gaming Heaven
KontrolFreek has been an integral part of the competitive Call of Duty scene for over 10 years now. We’ve been there for every headshot, every elimination, and every tournament-winning kill that sets the tone for why our competitive players are a force to be reckoned with. That’s why KontrolFreek has teamed up with the members of Atlanta FaZe to provide them with all the KontrolFreek accessories they need to take their A-game to the next level. And here’s a little secret: so can you.
Our accessories are built from the ground up to give gamers the edge they need to push ahead of the competition. Whether you’re looking to shoot straighter, or just improve your aim in Call of Duty, picking up one of our controller sticks or thumb grips can be a great way to get better at the game. Of course, you don’t have to just take our word for it. We caught up with Atlanta FaZe to see how the team uses their favorite KontrolFreek products to get a leg up on the competition.
“KontrolFreek brings a different comfort to my game where it just feels natural to me,” said Alec “Arcitys” Sanderson of Atlanta FaZe. “I can do whatever I want cause I’m not focused 100% on if my aim is going to be good cause with the KontrolFreek it’s usually up there.”
Like many other KontrolFreek users, Arcitys relies on his KontrolFreek controller thumbsticks to help keep his aim at its highest level. These sticks provide increased comfort, which means you can count on improved accuracy, all of which comes together to help you get better at Call of Duty.
“I use the Galaxy Mid Rise,” Arcitys said. “I started using KontrolFreeks ever since I was a pro, around 5-6 years now.” Arcitys’ long reliance on KontrolFreek products shows how helpful they can be, especially when playing at a professional level. But you don’t have to be a professional player to take advantage of the various products that we offer. All of the pieces that help pros like Arcitys keep his aim at such a high level are openly available to anyone.
Chris “Simp” Lehr, another player with Atlanta FaZe, says he has been using KontrolFreek products since Black Ops 3 came out back in 2016. “I use the Omni/Alpha KontrolFreeks,” Simp said. “I just needed a grip for my thumb, and I didn’t like the default PS4’s.”
Controller thumbsticks like the Omni set can increase comfort and improve accuracy, without adding a lot of extra length to your controller’s thumbsticks. The Omni set is built as a versatile, low-rise performance stick, which easily adapts to pressure. So, the more you play using them, the more comfortable and in control you’ll feel. This can greatly help improve your aim in Call of Duty.
These products, and more, have been vital to helping professionals reach higher levels of play, all while maintaining laser focus on winning their matches. “They help me shoot straight and control my recoil more,” Simp said, in reference to KontrolFreek’s thumbsticks. And anyone can take advantage of these products to control recoil and shoot straight in games like Call of Duty.
