The #1 ranked Call of Duty player shares his secret - the FragFX SHARK

Sometimes you just have to have the right controller for the job. f!ghting game afficionados have their sticks, and racing fans can be found behind their wheels, but what do console FPS fans have? Many have flocked to the PC for its mouse-and-keyboard advantage, but one company hopes to finally give console owners the upper hand. And apparently it works too damn good, at least that’s what one of the best COD players in the world is saying.

The FragFX SHARK is a unique controller from Split Fish, and officially endorsed by zDD, one of the top Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 players in the world. And this endorsement is as legit as it comes as he was using the device while being top ranked, before Split Fish called him up to be a spokesperson. What makes it stand out is that it combines a mouse and nunchuck-esque setup designed for those who prefer to frag on the PlayStation 3 in their living room. But unlike the nunchuck setup on the Wii, the unit was designed for high-level competitive play. Featuring a highly sensitive analog stick, two triggers, and the four trademark PlayStation buttons, the design and layout have been fine tuned for competitive play. The omission of a keyboard is an unusual design choice, but one that the creators hope to make the de facto standard.

PROTIP! When your ammo runs out, don’t reload. Switch guns because you can fire rounds off faster this way. Reloading takes way too long.

The whole process is made even easier through mappable buttons. If taken advantage of, those short miliseconds of time you save could mean the difference between life and watching the k!ll Cam yet again.

PROTIP! Always crouch when firing, this gives you an instant advantage because other players have to aim down to hit you. On the FragFX SHARK, you can map that crouch button in a way so that when you fire, you can also easily crouch at the same time.

This also applies to the sensitivity as well. Competitive players, including those that dabble in the holy grail of shooters known as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, usually top out their controller sensitivity at 4. However, with a little patience, users of the Split Fish can max out their sensitivity settings and still be comfortable with their settings.

PROTIP! If you love sniping, you should set your controller sensitivity way down, so that your movement for aiming the crosshairs is more precise.

The designers have also incorporated other bells and whistles, including SIXAXIS support and rapid-fire modes. Some may say this is cheating, but the creators of the device call it “making the most of their game”.

PROTIP! Competitive players use TVs that are smaller than 27”. This is because the response time on sets bigger than that are too slow for competitive play.

And it’s not just the creators reaping these benefits either. Constantly staying at #1 on the leaderboards, Dennis Dozier (aka zDD to his enemies on PSN) has made the most of a FragFX prototype for some time now, even catching the attention of Activision. He works by day at a full-time employee at Penn State, but he also has helped directly in designing the joystick, giving the creators the insight they need to make their product even better.

So it takes take some getting use to, playing with mouse and control for a console game. But the big question ultimate is: Does it really work? Can you improve your skills using this controller? Short answer: Hell yes. zDD says that when he was beta testing the controller against players online, he got banned 6 times because other players swear he was cheating. And I can see why: He racked up 60 k!lls vs. 1 death once.

At $90, this controller is clearly for those that want to dominate in FPS games on console. Though I should note this controller does also work on PC and MAC, chances are you’ll probably stick with mouse and keyboard on those systems. And as I mentioned before, if you are serious about f!ghting games, you use a f!ghting stick, and if you are serious about driving games, you use a racing wheel. Now FPS players have something that takes it up a few notches.

BTW - All the pro tips come from zDD, and while he was a bit reluctant to share all his tricks, we did get some juicy ones! Although, that’s like having a professional wrestler tells you how to do all the moves, and you thinking you can suddenly headline at Wrestlemania.
