What happened to the R2?

You might have noticed that we haven’t focused much on the development of the MaxxStick R2 since we released the MaxxStick R3. There are two main reasons for this. Firstly, we had reached the limits of what the MaxxStick R2 could do with its microcontroller. Secondly, we encountered issues procuring the microcontroller for the R2, which forced us to switch to an entirely different architecture for the MaxxStick R3.

Here’s how the R2.5 is better

While the R3’s exterior appears similar to the R2, it’s considerably more powerful internally. The R3 boasts a 1000Hz polling rate compared to the R2’s 125Hz, more advanced functionality, and a multifunction button to switch modes – features the R2 lacks. Given these limitations, we wanted to provide MaxxStick R2 owners with the opportunity to access the R3’s cutting-edge features.

Here’s how you can upgrade your keyboard joystick

This kit includes a new cable, lid, and microcontroller – the same one used in the MaxxStick R3 but designed to work with the R2. The R2.5 Upgrade Kit can be purchased from our website, and for a limited time, we include a free MaxxSkin with every kit. Additionally, you can order a replacement joystick guard with a built-in antifriction ring.

This upgrade kit is our way of showing appreciation to all of you who supported us when we were a completely new company. You mean a lot to us, and we want to see you continue to excel in gaming with the latest technology at your fingertips.
