KontrolFreek FPS SNIPR – The Review

KontrolFreek FPS SNIPR – The Review
5.0/5 Review Score:

With the release of Battlefield 3, KontrolFreek announced their latest in Freeks; the FPS SNIPR (and yes Freeks and SNIPR are correct so no grammar junkies please). For those who haven’t heard of KontrolFreeks, where have you been, and why haven’t you read this review on the FPS Prestige? I know they’ve been out a few weeks now, but here is my review for the FPS SNIPR;

Like the FPS Prestige, the FPS SNIPR extends the analog stick, giving you a greater range of motion giving you the edge over those without. You don’t need to have your sensitivity settings set to insane to benefit from them either. Just playing how you normally do, and with your current settings, you’ll notice a difference in your playing ability, and if you don’t, try taking them off after a couple of hours.


So how does the FPS SNIPR differ from the FPS Prestige? Simple, design and texture. Where the FPS Prestige are concave, the FPS SNIPR are convex (like a dome) and have a none slip covering on them, meaning your thumbs are less likely to slip (not that mine ever did using the FPS Prestige).

The official FPS SNIPR description from KontrolFreek is as follows;

The FPS Freek SNIPR was designed for all of you long-range weapon users who only have one chance to take the shot.

FPS Freek SNIPR’s convex thumb surface is designed for optimum grip and comfort. The extended length added by SNIPR allows you to make smaller adjustments and “snap” to, track and hit targets faster and more accurately.  This added precision will surely help you get the most out of all medium to long-range munitions like sniper rifles and other scoped weapons.

Works great in first-person shooters like:

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops
  • Modern Warfare 3
  • Battlefield 3
  • Halo: Reach
  • RAGE

FPS Freek SNIPR is designed to fit both the Xbox 360 controller and PS3 controller but will also fit many third-party versions.

To find out about the science stuff (which explains why these things totally rock) watch the video below (courtesy of KontrolFreek);

The design on the FPS SNIPR is a cool set of cross-hairs, ideal if your trying to SNIPR someone across the map (see what I did there?).

Are they worth it? – If your a gamer who likes to have an edge over the competition, or like to sit and have long gaming sessions, then you should definitely be thinking about getting yourself a set of these.
How easy are they to install? – 30 seconds to get into the package, 10 seconds (max) to clip both onto the controller.
Where do they ship to? They have suppliers all over the world, check out their where to buy page here.
Comfort – 5/5
Ease to use – 5/5
Will I notice a difference? – Yes, you’ll be able to move your sights a lot quicker honing in on the target.
Will it make me Pro? – Afraid not, no one gaming accessory will turn you into a “Pro Gamer” although, they can help you on your journey, it’s down to you and practice (unless your just naturally gifted).
Anything bad about them? If you try to force them on and yank them off the controllers they may break, but if you follow the instructions it shouldn’t be an issue, I’ve taken mine on and off controllers a few times and you wouldn’t even notice it (although you will notice it if you try gaming without them once you’ve had them on a few hours).
Would I recommend them? – To me, KontrolFreeks are like a controller, meaning I can’t game without them. I give the FPS SNIPR a 5/5 with our seal of approval.
