Gaming controllers are better than they’ve ever been, but they’re still not made equal. They come in all shapes and sizes and price points, with some being much better than others. For players wanting the very best, there are $200+ Pro-level controllers offering the best features and ultimate precision. But you don’t have to pay a fortune to get that level of quality: enter the Bigbig Won Rainbow2 Pro controller.
You might not have heard of Bigbig Won, but don’t let that put you off: founded in 2019, the company was put together by a team with a love of games and a desire to create the best gaming peripherals out there. With the Rainbow2 Pro controller, the team has delivered its best product yet – and it’s a fraction of the price of its competitors.
Costing just $69.99, the Rainbow2 Pro controller is compatible with PC, Switch and Android/iOS. It sports the full suite of features you’d expect on a pro-grade controller: Hall-effect triggers, interchangeable joysticks, a 1000Hz polling rate, programmable buttons, trigger-stop switches and more.
It absolutely looks the part too: stylish RGB lighting frames the controller, which comes with a bespoke magnetic charging stand – also decorated with RGB lighting. Use the accompanying app to program your own lighting patterns, making the controller entirely your own. Sure, it’s a bit of a gimmick, but who doesn’t love some gaudy RGB lighting as part of their gaming set-up?
With a price tag that makes it comparable to most standard controllers, there’s so much to love about the Rainbow2 Pro controller. Its pro features are going to appeal to serious gamers and esports players: its interchangeable sticks offer high precision, as do the lockable triggers, with switches that can change the triggers’ pull length – a key feature for excelling in first-person shooter games.
But it’s not just pros that are going to love the Rainbow2. Its build quality – solid with rubberised grips on both handles – means it’s going to appeal to the average gamer, too. Particularly those who enjoy fun designs and programmable RGB lighting. The extra features the controller offers? Those are just a bonus.
Less than half the price of competing pro controllers, the Bigbig Won Rainbow2 Pro controller is well worth taking a chance on. There really is no better value controller for PC or Switch.
