@ERICK001BC I'm not looking to buy a new (or even used) controller so long as the one I have still works. I haven't got that kind of budget, plus I've used an Elite controller at a friend's house. Aside from being extremely awkward to use (if I'm going to learn a new "control style" I might as well learn mouse and keyboard rather than un-learning how to use a controller) as I understand it those aren't "extra" buttons so much as redundant A, B, X, and Y buttons tucked under the controller do you don't have to move your thumb off the right control stick to press those buttons. Which honestly hasn't been too big an issue since using the "lock on" feature with the left bumper means I don't need the right stick to "aim" while charging up Techs or PAs using the X or Y buttons. I use A for jumping which really doesn't require a lot of "aim/look" use as it's not like there's a lot of nuanced control once airborne, and B is the "interact" button which again doesn't require a lot of fine aim/look control. So really all those redundant flipper buttons wouldn't be much help.
