How To Make Xbox 360 Modded Controller
Learning how to make Xbox 360 modded controllers can help give you an edge when playing against opponents on your Xbox 360. The rapid fire modification is one of the easiest to set up and creates some really devastating results. Learn how to do this modification and you can create custom controllers for your own personal use or for resale.
- T8 Torx Screwdriver
- Push button switch
- Thin wire
- Xbox 360 controller
- Soldering iron
- Drill bit (the same diameter as switch thread)
- Take apart your Xbox 360 controller. To get your controller apart, you will have to use your screwdriver to remove seven screws on the back of the controller. One of the screws is hidden behind the battery of the controller, so make sure to look there. After the screws have been removed, pull your controller apart with the buttons facing the ground.
- Decide where you want your switch to go and drill a hole in that location. Make sure you are certain about the location before you start drilling because that hole will be there forever.
- Mount the switch in to the newly drilled hole. To do this, position the switch into the hole so that the pins will not be damaged when the controller is put back together. Now, screw on the nut to lock the switch in place on your controller.
- Cut your wire in half to give you two short wires. Strip both ends of both wires. Solder one side of one wire to one of the switch pins. Solder the other wire to the other pin.
- Solder one side of the switch to the middle pin on the trigger. There will be three different pins on the right side of the board in a vertical line. You want to use the middle of those three pins. There are two red points in the middle of the circuit board near the center and near the top. Solder the other switch contact to either one of those red points (just choose the easiest one to get to).
- Put your controller back together and test out your new rapid fire mod. This mod will not work with every game out there. For the low cost of the mod, it is worth a shot.
Always use caution when operating a soldering iron.
