Had a smile on my face for the first 2 hours learning my new key binds in Fortnite. This opens up so many new possibilities and optimal keybinds. Honestly when you think about it it's insane that we are still using WASD for movement in 2023. Why use 4 keys to move when you can use 1 more effectively with your thumb? This is the future of PC gaming, I don't care what anyone says. May take 5-10 years, but this will catch on and WASD will go away. Might as well get ahead of the curve with the best PC joystick out there."

Been using the maxxstick for a few months now and when it comes to joysticks on the gaming space. This is by far the best I have seen. Easiest to set up, not clunky, and amazing software so that it always stays on when I start my pc. I've talked to the guy in charge of making a lot. Man is a wizard at what he does.

I managed to find this MaxxStick and it is a game changer! The movement is so much better, and your hand positioning feels a lot more natural once you get used to it, So happy with the product great materials used, better quality overall and another personal touch. I do like they have firmware updates with it so it keeps up to date with Fortnite especially!

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the MaxxStick work with the Sony PS5 and PS4?
The PS5 and PS4 is not supported because Sony’s PlayStation software will not allow two keyboards to be used simultaneously (i.e. your keyboard and the MaxxStick in keyboard mode). It’s an entirely arbitrary decision by Sony that makes it not possible to use the MaxxStick.
Can I use the MaxxStick with my Xbox?

For Xbox, the MaxxStick R3 and S3 have limited compatibility by switching into keyboard mode. I.e. you will get D-pad style movement experience in those games that support keyboard and mouse. We’ve only tested this on Xbox Series S and X and have not tested it with any other product. 

Not all Xbox games support keyboard and mouse.
