PS4's Sold-Out Back Button Attachment Is Now In Stock At Best Buy

The official back paddle attachment for the DualShock 4 is once again available in the US.


The best PS4 controllers out there feature programmable back paddles, and earlier this year, Sony released an attachment that equipped its DualShock 4 with them. That move proved popular, as the back button attachment sold out quite quickly. Sony announced last week that more would be back in stock in the US this week, and that looks to be have held true. The DualShock 4 back button attachment costs $30 and is currently available at some major retailers.

Right now, you can get one shipped to you from Best Buy for its standard $30 price tag. The peripheral has proven to be quite popular, however, so this current round of stock will likely sell out soon. You can also get it from PlayStation Direct.

The DualShock 4's back button attachment lets you map buttons to the attachment's two paddles. That means you can map things like X and O to the back paddles, so you can jump and crouch in Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare without taking your thumbs off the analog sticks. They're an absolute game-changer for most players.

If you're looking for more back paddle suggestions, there are a number of excellent controllers that feature them. The Scuf Vantage 2 boasts four back paddles, two extra side buttons, and a bunch of other features that make it the best overall PS4 controller out there. However, it features a similar analog stick placement to the Xbox One controller, so if you're not a fan of that, there's the more traditional Scuf Infinity 4PS Pro, which boasts two back paddles and the option for digital tap triggers. There are plenty of other great options, so check out our guide to the best PS4 controllers you can buy in 2020.
