Grab one of the best PC gamepads for when your keyboard and mouse simply won't do. 

The best PC controllers in 2021

6. Razer Wolverine Ultimate

A gamepad that offers many of the same luxury features as the Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller, like a swappable D-pad and back paddles. We also like the way A, B, X, and Y click like mouse buttons. 

Weight: 0.6 lbs (272g) | Connectivity: USB wired | Cord length: 10 ft (3m)

5. PowerA Spectra

The closest thing you can get to an Xbox One controller without actually buying an Xbox One controller. Build quality is pleasingly solid for the price, while edge lighting gives this gamepad some welcome personality. 

Weight: 0.99 lbs (447g) (+/-15g) | Connectivity: Micro USB | Features: LED edge-lighting, 3-way trigger locks

4. Astro C40 TR

Positioned as a premium alternative to PS4's DualShock 4, the C40 TR not only lets you swap parts out, you can even move them around. Example? The modular design will let you swap out the left thumbstick for the D-pad.

Weight: 0.68 lbs (320g) | Connectivity: 2.4GHz wireless, USB wired | Cord length: 6ft (1.8m)

3. Sony DualSense Wireless Controller

PS5's gamepad has a "you have to touch it to believe it" quality, thanks to its haptic motors and "Adaptive" triggers, which offer resistance under your finger. Firing a bow can actually feel like firing a bow. It's a killer feature. 

Weight: 0.46 lbs (210g) | Connectivity: USB Type-C, Bluetooth | Battery: Rechargable | Features: Touchpad, haptic triggers

2. Xbox Wireless Controlller

A pad that retains a lot of what we loved about Xbox One's controller. That classic Xbox shape feels as comfortable as ever, while the rubber grips feel great in your hands. The addition of a long overdue Share button is also welcome.

Weight: 0.62 lbs (281g) | Connectivity: Xbox Wireless; Bluetooth | Battery: 2x AA | Features: Hybrid D-pad, Textured Grip, Share button

1. Xbox Elite Wireless Controlller Series 2

The best wireless gaming controller you can buy for your rig. Everything about the Series 2 screams luxury. Being able to tweak all aspects of the controller, like d-pads, shift paddles, and joystick tension, is a godsend. 

Weight: 0.62 lbs (345g) (+/-15g) | Connectivity: USB Type-C, Bluetooth, 2.4GHz | Battery: Internal Rechargable Battery (40 hours)
