This would enable a player can jump, build mode, and form structure at the same time without removing hands from thumbsticks. Remapping would enable in switching the functionalities of different buttons while playing the game.

Moreover, players required to remap manually by taking the break during the game. But Scuf Vantage has an in-built EMR which enable remapping on the fly. Moreover, it is the first controller equipped with the removable face plate. Additional customization options are also available. They can be swapped easily whenever the need arises.
