Need Help Choosing the right Gamepad

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am just started to play bf3 and love it personally but Im really sucking with jets. I would like to buy a gamepad just for bf3 (so thus I don't want to spend lots of money cause I dont want a pro) and I have never played with one.

Found these in stores near me, which one shall I buy:


LOGITECH EXTREME 3D PRO
LOGITECH ATTACK 3 JOYSTICK
Genius MetalStrike Pro 3D USB Joystick w/Vibration Feedback
Saitek Cyborg V.1 Flight Joystick

I have the xbox controller and personally I think it's great. It's natively integrated into a lot of games. For those that aren't, you can quite often map the controls in the game's options, otherwise you can try http://xpadder.com/

The saitek dosen't work with BF3 atm. I have both those logitechs and i find the attack 3 is lacking. Extreme 3D pro is a very nice stick but mine died on me (I have the wireless edition)

I would just get the extreme 3D pro. It's 25 bucks on amazon.

Your better off keeping the 360 gamepad IMO. With it being microsoft it has the best native support

If you already have the xbox controller you should just use that for the game pad part. It is already set up (and what I am using)

Since you want something specialized for jets though get a flight stick. I havent hooked my cordless freedom up yet as I misplaced the 2.4ghz receiver, but it usually is a great stick for any flying game and am sure it would do well in bf3 as well as the extreme 3d. My brother in law uses that and its good, plus I think I saw a thread from here where icetron was using that on bf3.
