Frequently Asked Questions

What condition will the controller(s) need to be in to be eligible for trade in?

All trade in controllers must meet the following requirements to qualify for trade in:

  • The controller must be an original 1st-Party controller modified by one of our competitors.
  • The controller must turn on with its own power source.
  • The controller must be able to connect to its respective Console and/or PC.
  • The controller can drift to qualify, provided that the thumbstick commands still register input in-game.
  • The controller inputs from competitor modifications do not need to function. (i.e. broken paddles, triggers are OK)
  • Controllers with attachments must be submitted with most of the the original parts (i.e. Microsoft Elite, DualSense Edge)


What is a qualifying competitor controller that can be traded in?

In addition to customizable controllers such as the Microsoft Elite, DualSense Edge, and Astro C40, we are accepting custom controllers made by our competitors that are modified original 1st-Party controllers (i.e., like any controller that comes included with a console).

Here are some examples of controllers that are eligible for trade in:

  • Microsoft Elite
  • DualSense Edge
  • Astro C40
  • Aim Controllers*
  • Cinch Gaming*
  • Scuf PS5 Reflex, XSX Instinct, PS4 Impact, PS4 Infinity4PS*

*These may still be subject to rejection after inspection if they do not meet the Controller Condition qualifications.

You are also welcome to trade in your old Battle Beaver controllers as well!


Can I send in multiple controllers to get more $50 Gift Cards?

Absolutely! You can send in as many qualifying controllers as you want and we will combine all earned funds into the Gift Card total.


What happens if my trade in controller is rejected?

You will receive an email notification about the recycling of your controller, along with the reasons why it did not meet the trade in qualifications. Controllers submitted for Trade In cannot be returned under any circumstances once they have been received by Battle Beaver.
