Xbox 360 Bullet Buttons: Gun Controller, Literally.

by Paul Strauss

Want to make your Xbox 360 controller a little more bad-ass? How about replace the buttons with bullets? It turns out there are DIY kits available out there which let you do just that.


Surprisingly, I found a number of different Xbox 360 bullet controller kits over on eBay, but the ones from UK modders Rogue Controllers are my favorites. Their kits include a set of 9mm Luger bullet buttons for replacing your ABXY buttons, as well as a shotgun shell as a replacement for your D-Pad.


You can even decide between a Winchester or Remington 12 gauge shell for the D-Pad. These things are perfect for fans of first-person shooters.


Rogue’s bullet kits include all five shell casings, along with a bonus Torx screwdriver to make it easier to disassemble your controller. The kits sell for £13.95 (appx. $23 USD). In addition to the DIY kits, Rogue offers a variety of killer custom Xbox 360 controllers, including this camo beast, complete with .40 S&W Winchester ABXY buttons and a blue/green lightup button with a spent ammo button on top.

    I just purchased a nickel plated do-it-yourself Xbox 360 bullet button kit here – http://www.intensafirestore.com/collections/diy-rapid-fire/products/nickel-plated-xbox-360-bullet-buttons-d-pad

    I think the nickel looks better than the regular brass for sure.

      you could have made tehm easily with a dremil for free

      You can buy the bullets in ebay. you can order them all ready to instal, even with an added light in the middle. it was around $10 for guide button (lit), and $10 for A,B,X,Y unlit.
      it is easy to put in if u can do a basic solder, making them on your own looks hard. the shells are cut to be same shape as each button. it could be done, but not in the 40 minutes it took me to install them pre-made can see them on my youtube kingtrevorlive

        what can you use a 20 gauge shell for?

        • trevor freeman says:

          I think that is too big. I believe the left-right-up-down directional button is the 12 gauge size. so the other might not fit without major modifications. But another spot you could look into is the big on off button on the 360 slim. maybe it could be cut and drilled for that. i dont know the size of a 20 gauge shell. didnt even know it went that size
