The Xbox Elite series 2 is a great wireless controller for your Xbox if you want a fully customizable controller. It can be customized depending on what game or what you want to feel about the controls for comfort or precise input. Although it will not come cheap, I wish they done more on the ruggedness side of the controller which can take a beating without noticing any scratches on the housing of the controller. But the included accessories that you get plus the customization it is somewhat worth it to a true hardcore but a careful gamer haha.
