Some Cyber Monday 2022 deals are still going, and some have gotten even better! The Xbox Elite Series 2 controller is one example, this is of the greatest gamepads and one of the best Xbox Series X|S accessories, which is currently available for less than we saw it during Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Currently, Amazon offers a renewed Xbox Elite Series 2 controller for $127 (opens in new tab). The renewed model is in excellent condition and guaranteed to be fully functional with a 90-day Amazon Renewed Guarantee backing it. That's $52 off its typical price and $32 less than you can currently get a brand new Xbox Elite Wireless Series 2 (opens in new tab)

You can save $52 on one of the best premium gamepads out there if you don't mind going renewed. It features interchangeable thumb-sticks, paddles, and D-pads, adjustable tension thumb-sticks, rubberized palm grips, the ability to save up to three custom profiles, and a rechargeable battery and charging dock.

The Xbox Elite Series 2 Core controller offers all of the benefits of the Elite Series 2 hardware, but leaves out the interchangeable components. So if you don't mind skipping the interchangeable thumb-sticks, paddles, and D-pads, you can save $10 off its typical price.

If you've never used a controller of this caliber, get prepared to have your socks blown off. Beyond it feeling great ergonomically, it boasts plenty of vital features that will make your gaming experience far more enjoyable.

If you're a hardcore gamer who needs four paddles and two switches on the back of their controller to greatly increase their efficiency while gaming, then this is something worth looking into. It's especially useful for FPS gamers who refuse to adjust to a mouse and keyboard, as the ability to quickly execute actions by using buttons at the back means less movement is required to press that button.

It also has a built-in rechargeable battery and Bluetooth for easy pairing to your gaming laptop, iPhone, or iPad for Apple Arcade games. And with the dedicated Xbox Accessories app, you can fully remap every button, adjust the sensitivity of the sticks or triggers, and so much more. The Xbox Elite Wireless Controller works with Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and Windows 10 machines.
