    Microsoft Elite 2 Controller - Stick Drift Issue - Let us Adjust DEAD ZONE


    Not sure if this is the correct forum to post this?? But Microsoft has no feedback forum?

    I am noticing a lot of people are having issues with their Elite 2 controllers, stick drift. Me too, I have just sent mine in for repair under warranty.

    But this could have been easily fixed by Microsoft for most of us, as my drift was only about 10%,

    Their software is great for configuring and adjusting the movement profile of the stick. But for some reason they decided not to include the ability to create a dead zone.

    I would have been quite happy to not send my controller back, as my drift was only 10%, so if I could have created a dead zone at 10%, then my stick drift issue would have been corrected. And I could have lived with the 10% reduction in movement, as it would be barely noticeable.

    I hope you read this Microsoft!! And really from your pointy of view, its a no brainer to do this, as it must be costing you a fortune in returns..

    controller drift

    That is strange. I've only ever had stick drift on my old 360 controllers. I don't know if the standard Xbox one controllers have it, but the Xbox Elite controller sticks can be adjusted to have dead zones to avoid drift. Check in the Xbox Accessories
    app if you can adjust it for normal controllers.

    Have my elite controller set up and still drifts. Can't do standard controller. Did notice they drift worse on any COD.

    Borderlands 3 character continually tracks to the right when I'm trying to be stationary.

    What is the fix?
    This sounds like stick drift, if it's only happening on Borderlands 3, then it's likely just a slight amount of stick drift. Have a look in the Borderlands 3 controller settings, and see if you can adjust the 'Dead Zones' for the analogue sticks, that should
    help temporarily.

    But ultimately for stick drift, there's no easy/quick fix, because it's a hardware issue and not a software issue. If your controller is still under warranty, then it may be worth looking into whether you can get it repaired/replaced. Otherwise you may need
    to find a third party repair person.

    Xbox controller drift, on an elite controller!?

    For me, adjusting the dead zones worked. Go into the Xbox accessories app and increase the dead zone range. If you have to adjust it a lot to counter the drift, you can always increase the joystick sensitivity in game to counter the dead zone.
