  1. Stick drift after controller firmware update?


    Does anyone know if you can re-install a firmware update on a controller? I feel like I'm getting stick drift on all three of my newer controllers over the last month while playing Apex Legends and I am wondering if this is a known issue or not (it could be an issue with the game too, so I'm trying to narrow down the cause).

    Controller right stick drift after update

    Hi Snip3R, thanks for the quick response. This is a weird one, for sure.

    I actually don't use a play and charge setup, just rechargeable double AAs, and use the USB cable only for controller firmware updates. I've had my One for a couple years now, and never had a problem with my controller or the firmware updates until August.

    I read somewhere on reddit to download the Controller Tester app from the Xbox store. When I tested my original XB1 controller using it, after about a 10 second delay, you could see the right stick drift upward slightly to the 40 mark or so and stop. Correcting
    it does the same thing, slight delay, and then upward drift to the 40 mark. From this, it doesn't appear to be the joystick mechanism itself causing the drift, but the firmware or console firmware, perhaps. And even further, maybe for only certain model
    controllers, like mine. :)

    Left stick drift on Elite Series Controller 2?

    Unfortunatley ‘Stick drift’ is common in all xbox one controllers after some time and is inevitble.

    Utterly Furious!

    My only comments is to ask are, since you seem to have gone through so many controllers and state you experience drift on each one; (1) how are the controllers stored? - While they are stored and in an off state, is anything pressing up against the stick
    that is experiencing the drift? (2) No where is it metioned if the controllers are up-to-date. So, have you verified that the firmware is up-to-date on the contollers?
