    What's the problem? Is it affecting your gameplay? And if so, how? – Ben Dec 27 '18 at 5:38
  • Little cousins but I just don’t like and it was $250 bucks – Troy Davis Dec 27 '18 at 5:50
  • Is it affecting your gameplay? Do they both map to circle? – Ben Dec 27 '18 at 5:52

    Quick and dirty fix: draw the proper icon on a piece of paper and paste it on top of the button. Proper solution: claim your warranty. This is clearly a defect on arrival. – Nolonar Dec 27 '18 at 10:04

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is not a gaming-specific problem. Manufacturing defects happen in all sorts of hardware, and solely the fact that this particular piece of hardware is gaming-related does not make it on-topic for this site. – Schism Dec 27 '18 at 18:08

It is more than likely that this is just a cosmetic problem. During assembly, someone grabbed a second circle button and placed it in a slot intended for one of the other buttons. Pressing it should result in the proper input, much like swapping the keys on a keyboard.

Cosmetic or not, your best option for fixing it is to contact the manufacturer's support (in your case, the support page for SCUF is here). After providing them with whatever information they require (proof of purchase, picture of the defect), they will likely provide details on how to ship it back to them so they can verify the error and send you a replacement. This process may take some time to complete.

  • You may even get a free controller out of this. Shipping defective products to the manufacturer is a waste of time and money for something that is just going to be disposed of. – Studoku Dec 27 '18 at 10:42
  • @studoku Maybe? Wouldn't count on it. A simple button swap wouldn't cost the manufacturer much, and these scuf ones are 'premium' controllers sold at ~$200+ (why in anyone would pay the nearly the cost of a console form single controller, idk). They're more likely to swap the button and re-sell it. If it was a generic controller that only cost $50, maybe. – Trent Hawkins Dec 27 '18 at 11:42
