The Boss is a controller by BattleMonkey that can be ordered from Spain in hitbox, WASD, or fightstick format. It is made of acrylic and methacrylate. The top and bottom panels are 4 & 5 mm, and the button/joystick layouts are customizable according to your taste.

Even the auxiliary buttons can be customized to your liking. For example, the side can have three to five buttons, such as start, select, and modification, and the back can have three to six buttons. That is also where the USB port is.

The joystick design can come at two different depths, accommodating the deepest joysticks like the Korean ones. Besides the standard, blade, and X enclosures, here are the eight layouts at your disposal:

  • Hitbox classic
  • Hitbox all 30 mm
  • Vewlix WASD
  • Vewlix classic
  • Vewlix close
  • Noir classic
  • Noir close
  • Custom

With a “puzzle” pattern finish, there are double panels on the sides that allow the addition of custom art, which we can provide here at The Arcade Stick through our custom artwork service. That is whether you would like side panel art or for the top panel itself.

Other thoughtful design elements include stainless steel screws to avoid corrosion due to sweat. Furthermore, there are built-in mounting holes for Brook PCBs, such as the UFB Fusion. Those who like to play with a controller on their desks may be glad to know there are rubber feet.
