can you use the rapid fire with COD games?

Rapid fire should be banned!:viking:

Nice looking 3rd party pad though & it has a nice shape for custom jobs too.... wonder what the insides look like?

Wireless version £5 more.

They were always too expensive for me to be interested before but at this price I'm tempted...

It says programmable rapid fire function. Is it just a small switch that activates it then?

doesnt seem to be any info anywhere about them??

think i'll just get one and try it out, if doesnt work it can go back

The Turbofire controller’s secret weapon is its programmable Turbo Rapid Fire that can be enabled on any one or more of 8 buttons, giving you a firepower advantage that can make all the difference. Just start the programming, choose which buttons you want to use Rapid Fire on and set the Turbo Rapid Fire mode. The Turbofire controller has three selectable speed profiles ensuring usage of Rapid Fire with the widest range of games. With rapid fire enabled, weapons like single shot pistols in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, become lethal, fully automatic weapons that can empty a clip on an enemy in a second!

The controller IS AMAZING! the rapid fire works AMAZINGLY well!

Hi, I got one yesterday but the sound quality through the headset is poor. Tested the headset on a normal pad and it was fine, so it had to be the pad.

Ok thanks for info, reserved 2 wired black models, wireless no stock in my area

brought the wired white one today worked on mw2 like a treat. so my brother decided to get one all good, but when the headset is plugged in when you hit the fire button it makes a "fart" noise. also the triggers arnt the best but other than that its great

Does it work on Windows 7?

I dont know why this isnt getting kinda hot, rapid fire controllers on ebay are about £50 - £60 in some cases!

got to say that I hate it when you come up against an enemy with a rapidfire controller - but I may well get one of these and have it handy to swap-out and pwn them back :thumbsup:

interesting to see how this works with FAL instead of my trusty ACR
(15,000 kills across all weapons on MW2)

Because most players see rapid fire pads as out and out cheating.

is rapid fires are big time "cheating" why are argos selling them?

i really dont understand when microsoft ban you for using them online one rapid fire on amazon is licensed by microsoft ?

They dont ban you, They just dumb down your shooting the the rest of the time your playing, They just set your fire rate back to normal. And i think theres something dodgy about them being sold licensed by microsoft, It could just be that they are official microsoft pads that have been modified.

the controller i chipped myself about 2 years ago works on all cod games, kinda fun for custom games with my machine gun sniper rifle but not very accurate.

pah bought one last week got all excited and its pants, taking it back today. Yeh the rapid fire works but the controller is horrible, hard to press triggers and movement is way to jerky, nowhere near as good as the official controller. shame really.

Just collected 2 of these this evening and i cant believe how small the buttons are on the controller! plus the lead is not 10 foot as advertised but only 8 foot making it shorther than the official microsoft controller (9 foot lead),perhaps i was given an older model? any other views on this welcome.

yes the buttons are smaller
just measured the lead and from pad to end of usb is approx 112 inches, (9ft 4") although it does state 8ft lead on the packaging :?
tried it on track & field (xboxlive arcade) and got a 100m time of 7.4 secs :w00t:
couldn't get it working properly with Beijing game though?
had a go on MW2 with a FAL and it does indeed turn it from a single shooter into a pretty quick auto - but it is cheating really, and shall only be used to deal out punishment to others who use one against me.........
MW2 prestige 2 level 70 at the minute, and can't decide whether to do as I did with COD4 and go all the way round to 10th prestige. 16,000+ kills - how's anyone else out there doing? Looking at online stats, there are some people ranked 7,000,000 + - that's a lot of people playing MW2 :w00t:

add me to your friends list for a game/stat compare - my GT is J9STL
play MW2 most nights 11.00 onwards for an hour or two
hope they clear up the care package glitch soon, and root out the prestige level-up cheats

I didnt open packaging yet ..only went by packaging about the 8 foot cable
Will have a think tonight what to do,cant imagine there would be a problem getting a refund open packaging or not as i could argue the description is wrong and its not 10 foot cable?Probably test it out later with battlefield 1943

How do you find the controller overall?
it seems the rapidfire does work witha lot of games but how do you find the buttons, is it comfortable for long gaming sessions and any problems with headset plugged in as per some comments?

I've not actually used the headset yet - don't want to be called a cheater when all I'm doing is using a rapid fire controller!!

The holding of the controller feels slightly alien to the official one, I think that's why a couple of people have grumbled. It's not as fat and takes a bit of getting used to after using the original one for so long but after a bit I was fine.

You can't go wrong for the price, even a bog standard unoffical controller costs this much or more.
