Do you want to get the edge in online gaming sessions? Maybe you just find it difficult to remember the controls for all the different games you play? While everything we know about the PlayStation 5 includes some details on a snazzy new controller, your existing PS4 pad is about to get an upgrade thanks to the DualShock 4 Back Button Attachment.

That means you don’t have to shell out for an expensive pro controller to get some extra buttons to play with. The GAME-exclusive Back Button Attachment gives you two extra buttons on your DualShock 4 controller, designed to give gamers extra comfort and precision when playing their favourite games.

Sick of clicking the sticks to sprint in Call of Duty? Map the R3 button to one of the back buttons and make sprinting easier than ever before. Constantly forgetting how to throw a grenade? Simply map L1 to one of your new back buttons and get back in the fight. You could also map the L2 and R2 buttons to the back buttons, making those long hours of gripping the straps of your backpack in Death Stranding much easier.

Simply unbox the attachment and slot it into the DualShock 4’s EXT port to get started. Hold down the attachment’s middle button to cycle through buttons you would like the back button to replace.

This handy attachment also allows you to remap your inputs at the touch of a button. With this attachment, you can quickly configure different button combinations and switch between them on the fly. You can save up to three profiles and switch between them on the attachment’s compact digital screen.

You won’t need to worry about changing your headset set-up either, as the attachment comes complete with audio headset integration.
