Hey there! We understand how annoying a drifting controller can be, and no controller should have a mind of it's own. Let's have you try some troubleshooting steps for your left controller analog stick drifting:

 

  • Remove the batteries for at least 2 minutes before attempting to use them again. Or replace with fresh batteries. You'd be surprised how often this can make a difference. 
     
  • Increase the dead zones of the controller until the drift is no longer an issue/noticeable. 
  1. Go to Settings
  2. Go to Controller Settings
  3. Under Joystick Deadzone and Range, select the joystick which is having issue
  4. Follow on-screen instructions to recalibrate the joysticks deadzones
     

When powering on your controllers, ensure that the Analog sticks aren't being held in any direction and are at rest in the neutral position.​ If you continue to have issues with the controller, please contact our amazing support team for more assistance!
