Rog 2 Kunai gamepad extremely buggy

I finally received the rog 2 Kunai gamepad up here in Canada and I have to say I'm extremely disappointed. With the high price tag and long wait I expected a much better product. The key mapping function seemed great but after playing for 10 hours I just don't want to use it. The keys respond 75% of the time and analogs have a mind of their own. From racing games being unable to turn and shooters spinning around in circles. They key mapping clearly needs an update to resolve a lot of this but it seems like an unfinished product.


  • I totally agree, now the questions is to wonder if the shortcomings can be fixed with software updates or it's sokething to do within hardware?

  • Now that more people are receiving their game pads these issues with it are becoming more apparent. It would be nice to have a response from a mod here.

  • Yeah I'm not going to lie feel pretty ripped off by this company. Nothing feels ready, nothing feels gamer. Just feels like shitty overpriced mad cats console with mad cats accessories.

    I'm doing a fortnite mobile tournament soon, I'm likely playing on the switch console for it... the switch, 800$ less than what I pay for all attachments + the phone.... why is the switch out performing this product for a gamer?

    It's like they forgot what gaming is about:

    1 Low latency responsiveness on lots of inputs

    2 Snappy fps

    3 Customizable ways to play.

    Big fails across the board. My input devices barely work, if I try to dock to my tv the frames are worse even though I have a gaming monitor and I cant customize nearly enough and even if I do see point #1. Such a waste. I'll be sure to make videos as well on socials about my experiences as well. Hopefully I can save some people from wasting money as I have.

  • I agree with everything, I have received the controllers and they are unusable, and for what they cost it makes the balls turn a lot

  • 1. on shadowgun leggend that connects gamepads with the bumper the commands don't work, go late or get stuck making it impossible to play

    2. if you set the keys on the screen for games that do not support controllers, the analog for the movements loses gradual movements making the game frustrating

    Love the ROG 2, but the rest is rubbish.. ASUS needs to pull the finger out ASAP. The kunai pad is unplayable for me as the input lag and missed inputs on combined button presses makes it a POS...

    Definitely not worth the some USD$150 I paid from BH in the US

    I just want to say too, I tried the Xiaomi Blackshark 2 gamepad (with BS2 phone) on the weekend and it works flawlessly... You guys got seriously owned by Xiaomi, and at almost half the cost.. Terrible.

  • Hi! sorry about the late reply

    Has your opinion changed to the better after the .64 update. Do some of you still experience Kunai issues?

  • problem 1 yes now shadowgun Legend works perfectly and the kunai connected with the cover no longer have lag.

    while problem 2 still persists, if you map the analog on the screen for games that do not support the controller, the movements are no longer gradual as if the analog worked like the directional push-button arrows

  • Bonjour moi aussi ses une catastrophe sa bug sur le couvercle les stick parfois tourne en rond mais je voudrais savoir si je peut m'être a jour j' ai une version tencent

  • I was just about to pull the trigger on my Kunai purchase but after reading these disappointing facts, I will delay my spending. I would love to hear of any updates that this is resolved so that I do not waste my money.
