Introduction: How to Rapid Fire Mod 360 Controler for 3 Dollars

Picture of How to Rapid Fire Mod 360 Controler for 3 Dollars

alright, i know it is a big pain in the ass to have to go out and buy some stupid chip to rapid fire mod your controler. it takes time to ship and is expensive and complicated but i will show you how to do it without the chip. disclamer: i am not at all resposible for you breaking your equipment or bieng banned from xbox live. or hurting yourself somehow.

things you need
momentary push button
small flathead or torx t8 screwdriver
pencil tip soldering iron
rosin core solder
tape (optional)
some sort of wire (mine came off a broken charger but 12 gauge is the best)
i bought every thing i needed for this at radio shack.

Step 1: Taking Apart

alright i know that going out and buying things is annoying so if you want this to be the easiest you can buy a torx t8 security proof screwdriver. i personaly use a flathead and broke the pins out of the middle of the star shaped screws. second there are seven screws. if you think there are only six you my friend are wrong. behind the battery pack it should be near if not under some sort of sticker. it is relitivly but also important. after that is done you could tape your buttons or if you are like me and cant find tape just turn it upside down and be careful. make shure the metal coils that touch the battery arent getting caught on the bottom case of the controler. when you are pulling the controler should be upside down. take the lb and rb buttons off for now all of those wires in the pictures arent going to be there because this controler is highly modified by a friend i just asked to take a picture so i could make this instructable.

Step 2: The Begining of the End

alright now that your controler is sucsesfully open you will have some circut board that looks like the shape of the controler. it will have two things dangling off of it. those are called rumble packs. there purpose in life is to make your controler vibrate to simulate what your games images are. the one on the right side is going to have to come off for your button to have clearence space. do not drill your hole too high or else it will not allow space for your button.

Step 3:

after you have removed the right rumble pack and have the circut board in hand it is time to break out the old soldering iron. you are going to need a pencil tip unless you are very skilled with soldering because the point you solder is less than a centimeter from points that you must not touch in both instances of soldering first take your wire and get 2 diferent wires by cutting. then strip both ends bare of the rubber coat. solder one side of each wire to the two points on the button.

Step 4: Gets a Little Tricky

alright there is going to be three dots running verticaly and near where you took the rumble pack off there are going to be 2 points horizontaly. the way you test wich points work is you put the board back in the back case turn on you box and controler and then touch the wires to the points and push the button. then after finding the points (for the standard microsoft controler it is usualy the middle point on the vertical dots and the right point on the horizontal dots. solder the points by heating up the iron put a little solder (so it doesnt stick to what you are soldering) and then put a tiny drop of solder on the wire touching the point. and do the same for the other point.

Step 5: Final Preperation

now you have to drill a hole out of the back to mount your button. dont drill to high or else the circut board will not sit back in flat and that is a huge problem. then there will be a nut on your button. take your button push it through the hole and put the nut on the end and twist untill tight. then put the controler back by putting the d pad and button pad and buttons back on. make shure they are straight or they will not function. then put the pads back on with the black dots facing up. then put the top of the controler back on and the rb and lb strip and put your screws back in with the same driver you took them out with. this mod works on all first person shooters that i know of. i also use it on gta and saints row.

now you are done! kill your friends without them knowing how you are doing it. when you push the button a pistol turns into a machine gun and sprays bullets as fast as the game allows! tons of fun

This is some godawful writing.

I'd love to try this mod out, but this article is nearly incomprehensible.

How can this get you kicked out of xbox live?

mxblankd26 (author)Redneck22009-05-16

yes it is cheating seeing as it takes your weapon from semi auto to as fast as the game allows it to shoot

I own all but "Ghost" COD games and also I own BF4, and I Have yet to find any gun that a rapid fire controller can make shoot faster than I am able to make it shoot just by pulling an unmodded trigger in/out kinda fiast.

So if you do this mod, do not expect your rate of fire on ANY semi auto guns to increase.... it ONLY makes it so that you don't have to press and release and press and release your trigger, but instead just allows you to be a bit lazy and hold it down instead of rapidly pressing the trigger yourself. But No mod will increase the rate of fire for any pistol or DMR, etc..

How is it cheating? I have used modded controllers and all it does is keep you from having to press and release the trigger as fast as you can... you get to be lazy and just hold the trigger down... but it does NOT increase the rate of fire of (for example) a pistol or other semi-auto weapon... it still only fires as fast as it used to before you modded your controller, only now you just dont have to push/release/push/release/push/release the trigger button, that is the only difference. I do NOT even begin to imagine HOW anyone you shoot could POSSIBLY tell you are using a modded "rapid fire" button.. because it's not like it makes the semi auto weapon fire faster than before, it just allows you to be lazy (imo) and not have to do it yourself but just hold down the button. How could someone possibly tell you are using a rapid fire button? How do they know you aren't just pressing and releasing your trigger like you used to before modding? BECAUASE YOU CAN RAPID PUSH THE UN-MODDED REGULAR STOCK TRIGGER FASTER THAN THE GUN CAN RESPOND/FIRE.

SO; How does anyone you shoot know you are not just pressing your unmodded button as fast as you can?

its cheating

manmelvin (author)Trainman 20012010-05-28

It is technically cheating however you will not get kicked off of xbox live.

Bremer1281 (author)2011-02-05

Will it work for Reach, Black Ops, and MW2?

Zappzipper (author)Bremer12812014-12-30

add me on xbox my gamertag is Zappzipper maybe we can play BO1 tougether

simplebotics (author)Bremer12812011-02-09

ya it will work i tested mine, my friend just bought one for over 100 dollars from a "pro", cant wait to show him mine that i made for 1 buck!

Buzzsushi (author)simplebotics2011-04-18

@Brermer1281 Reach is sketchy due to the reticle expansion. Just sayin.
Also, @simplebotics, I was thinking of doing that myself (Most controllers on ebay are $80) and selling it for around $70.

cwolfe7 (author)Buzzsushi2011-11-13

If you play in the new TU Beta playlist in Reach, they have an awesome gametype called ZB Slayer, which stands for "Zero Bloom", meaning the reticle won't expand. So it would be perfect for that, which is why I want to mod my controller for this.

blaze.ninja42.0 (author)2013-01-25

could you please add a bigger picture? the one that describes where the points are?

milesg (author)2011-03-24

Has anyone done this if so did it work?

Bremer1281 (author)2011-02-05

I just found out that my controllers are the "matrix" model. Will those work?

Bremer1281 (author)2011-02-05

I bought my xbox and controllers in October 2009 (they were new). Will they work for this mod?

X-22 (author)2009-08-05

does anyone know what the solder points above and below the middle one are for?

Pale_Flyer (author)X-222010-12-22

the middle is the voltage in. the other two are for the "output". you need to test this with a multi-meter. one will be for the "push" the other for the "release"

VincentDA (author)2010-09-26

Can you get banned for rapid fire?

junits15 (author)VincentDA2010-09-26

not a permanent one, you can only get a temporary ban (as far as i know) The reason that this happens is if enough people complain because you piss them off. You risk a temp. ban for using one on live, you will be absolutely fine if you use one in single player or local multiplayer.

AJKargl25 (author)2010-08-10

OMG I HAVE AN EXTRA BUTTON! YES! I've always wanted two right triggers :)

vampierwolf (author)2010-07-19

does this just work on x box live or can you use it on fire fight and campaigen?

GianniMora (author)2010-02-13

its sure, not shure

RANDOMUS3R (author)GianniMora2010-06-10

Dude...Shut up...No need to be a Grammar Nazi...

GianniMora (author)RANDOMUS3R2010-06-11

haha srry man i was probly on one of my man periodes when i wrote this;)

supersith22 (author)GianniMora2010-06-22

Periods not periodes lol jk. cool mod

RANDOMUS3R (author)GianniMora2010-06-20

;p I Was playin', i always wanted to say that :)

zamorak683 (author)2009-11-27

You know it's the other way around. The matrix one is the newer models that don't work that way. And the older models have a Quartz crystal (this one is the one that works w/o a 555 timer).

manmelvin (author)zamorak6832010-05-28

The matrix is the older model which works for this mod. The cg is the new model with no crystal therefore it will not work without a timer.

iDuumb (author)2010-05-27

it will work as rapid fire, it depends on the switch type you get. robb is right if you use a normal switch but you must use a different type of switch

dylan2345 (author)2010-03-26

 hi chris

manaox2 (author)2010-03-18

BTW, 12 gauge wire is HUGE! You probably want 30 gauge.

sjoobbani (author)2010-03-06

 Don't cheat.
Lag switches
Rapid fire

STILL*FREE123 (author)2009-07-14

what is rapid fire

GianniMora (author)STILL*FREE1232010-02-13

 its so you can shoot full auto with like a pistol.


IPlayGuitar (author)2009-08-18

You dont have to remove the rumble, some of the other ones are basically just put around it, lol

mxblankd26 (author)2009-06-21

i guess my swich just ha a bulgier back

keonetics (author)mxblankd262009-08-17

i had to

countable (author)2009-06-30

Lol, pwned

gazzlo (author)2009-06-17

dude- this image is way too small to see.

Pwii (author)2009-06-17

I just wanted to point out that you do not have to remove the right rumble device in order to put a switch there. I did it about 6 months ago and I did not have to do anything of the sort.

ac1D (author)2009-06-16

WTF, take your own picture if you have done it, at least. Dumbass.

mxblankd26 (author)2009-06-10

this is not true it works as a rapid fire mod on my controler

muvian (author)2009-05-17

Most of the people that do this the cheap way use the spot that flashes the led and will burn out your controller with use

Lunera (author)2009-05-11

sorry, but you may want to explain how this works, You haven't done anything but added a button.
