- Button caps in different shapes and sizes, including:
- Pillow button caps
- Flat button caps
- Wide flat button cap (which covers two button sockets)

- Curve button caps (which can be pushed if placed along the top or pulled if placed along the bottom of the controller)
- Swappable button cap tags for players to easily mark which inputs they map to each button
As a highly customizable controller suite, it can function as an independent joystick or be paired with a DualSense controller, comprising of two Access Controllers and one DualSense together. It features swappable joysticks and buttons, supports triple key functions for a single button, and is capable of storing three sets of custom button configurations. Players can adjust the layout based on their strength, range of motion, and physical needs. Furthermore, players can connect a variety of external devices and third-party auxiliary accessories through four 3.5mm interfaces.
