Best Xbox One Controller Accessories in 2021 – Take It To The Next Level

Xbox One Controller Accessories

I’ve used many different controllers over the years for many different purposes, from mobile o console gaming, and the Xbox One controller is still my favorite controller for all my gaming needs, at least until I get to try the new Core controller made for the Series X.

But, for as long as I can remember, I’ve always believed that if something is good, we can make it better, and I was determined to find the right accessories to take my controller experience to the next level. Especially since Xbox Cloud Gaming is on the rise and I want my controller to adapt to the new wave as well.

Drawing on inspiration from the Elite 2 and the infamous Scuf range, I think I found the perfect components to turn an already good controller into a dynamic gaming beast that can improve your style and performance without demanding a complete overhaul or an entirely new peripheral.

Nearly every game I play requires me to aim and shoot and I’m constantly looking for the best performance from my controller. The simplest solutions are always the best and that’s exactly what we have here today. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at what I consider to be the best Xbox One controller accessories in 2021.






KontrolFreek Galaxy Thumbgrips



Product: Thumbgrips

Brand: KontrolFreek

Price: $14.99

Best Place To Buy: Amazon



It’s no secret by now that console gamers have discovered the secret to replicating that authentic mouse-like precision with the small rotations of the right analog stick. You might have seen similar extensions on the Elite controller’s swappable analogs but now, you can get the extended sticks without the full upgrade.

The tallest Thumbgrips in the set add 6.5 mm of height to your analog stick, allowing you to increase your sensitivity and make pixel-perfect movements across the screen. Guaranteed to make you never want to lift your thumb off the right analog stick again.

The Thumbgrips supplied by KontrolFreek are some of the most premium accessories you can get at such an affordable price and is a must-have for first-person shooter fans whether you’re a casual Apex player or an elite Call of Duty sweat. And, with an impressive range of colors and designs, it’s easy to find the right one for you.

PowerA MOGA Mobile Gaming Clip

Brand: PowerA

Price: $14.99

Best Place To Buy: Amazon



For a long time, it seemed as if cloud gaming would only be a treat for future generations to enjoy but, thanks to Xbox Cloud Gaming, we’ve officially moved into the realm where console-quality gaming can be experienced anywhere and at any time. That’s where the MOGA Mobile gaming clip comes into play.

PowerA has delivered some of the best mobile gaming controllers on the market but getting started with Xbox Cloud Gaming is as easy as downloading the app and connecting the Xbox One Controller that you already own to your mobile device. And, with this handy phone clip, all your gaming needs are taken care of.

It features dual locking articulation points, allowing you to adjust your device to any comfortable position and preventing the need to find a flat surface for your device to rest on while you play. Just snap on the phone clip and it’s all right there in the palm of your hands.

KontrolFreek Precision Rings



Product: Precision Rings

Brand: KontrolFreek

Price: $11.99

Best Place To Buy: Amazon



One of the features on the Elite controller that draws a lot of attention is the ability to adjust the tension of each analog stick individually. Needless to say, we’re all built differently, and trying to find that all-important sweet-spot comes down to simply what works for you.

Thanks to these precision rings from KontrolFreek, you’ll have the opportunity to do exactly that and give your analog sticks all the extra tension you could need without replacing your entire analog system or getting your hands on a new pro controller. It’s affordable and functional as any upgrade could be.

These come with 4 rings that give you 2 base settings to chose from. Purple for a medium setting and Black rings that provide even more resistance. If you’ve ever wanted to be able to turn and flick onto your opponents without a mouse and keyboard, then this is just right for you.

Collective Minds Mod Pack



Product: Mod Pack

Brand: Collective Minds

Price: $34.99

Best Place To Buy: Amazon



Now for a product that has been shrouded in controversy ever since I first heard the words ‘Call of Duty: Warzone’. With the quest for perfect recoil being an intricate part of accuracy in first-person shooters, it’s no surprise that devices like this have brought controller mods into the spotlight.

While I do not condone the use of these mods, they’re a small add-on to what we really want and that’s the paddles on the back. These paddles are completely remappable and are the easiest way to add more buttons to your controller setup without adding a brand new controller to your collection.

But, if you are looking for a new peripheral to become your daily driver, then I would suggest rather getting your hands on the Enhanced controller from PowerA. It’s wired as well and can provide a lot of the pro features you’d want, including extra buttons on the back.

Which One Should I Get?

If I could only walk away with one new attachment or accessory for my controller then it would have to be the Thumbgrips from KontrolFreek. Almost every single game I play needs me to shoot somebody ad I often spend at least half an hour trying to find the right settings from game to game.

Having a controller that’s always tailored to all my aiming needs is an absolute win and I don’t see myself going back to my regular playstyle without it. It will take some getting used to but, with the amount of gaming that I do, I’ll be well-adjusted in no time.

While I would like to get my hands on them at the same time, I would have to put the mobile phone clip from MOGA next on the list. Xbox Cloud Gaming is fast becoming one of my primary ways to play and I’m definitely going to want an alternative to the telescopic controllers that I have.

Do you have accessories for your Xbox controller? Which one would you choose? Let me know in the comments sections below.

    these accessories together with fast internet connection online gaming is indeed a reality.

    I personally like the PowerA MOGA Mobile Gaming Clip because it enables me to game effectively on my mobile.

    I’m thinking about investing my time on Robert Kiyosaki’s online monopoly game. Do you think this PowerA MOGA Mobile Gaming Clip will make my experience better?
