Introduzione

Growing up, I have always played on an Xbox, and I have had problems with drift stick several times with different controllers. This problem becomes annoying over time when playing first and third-person video games. When I play video games, I want to perform the best I can, and I couldn't with a drift stick. Since those experiences, I decided to create this guide to help others running into the same problem. You'll know when a controller has a drift stick when your character moves or looks all over when not touching the controller. Fixing the issue doesn't take long, and you only need two items one 70% Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol and 3 to 4 cotton balls. If the analog stick on the controller is already falling apart and is messed up, just get a new one.

would hand sanitizer be a good substitute?

I had actually been dumb enough not to look this up, so I just replaced the thumb sticks and it had made it better, but it didn't fix it. Any recommendations? I've had the controller since around 2016 or 2017. Original controller that came with the xbox.

The original Xbox one controller is notorious for getting stick drift. Only way to fix that one is the re-Solder the thumb stick back on. Like remove it and re-solder it.

Thank you for this guide! My controller was having issues with drift and the sticks weren’t responsive. Using alcohol helped with drift and blowing into the controller itself helped clean the dust.
