PROGRAMMABLE JOYSTICK

Take advantage of the built-in joystick for unmatched levels of control with ROG Chakram Core and your gaming keyboard. The joystick can be set to Digital or Analog modes to fit your play style. Choose between the long or the short joystick, or do away with it completely.
The 256-level Analog mode gives you a level of control you’d expect from a real analog joystick or gamepad joystick for much more precise control. Run-and-gun with your in-game character, drive a vehicle and fly a plane, all with Chakram Core.

Note: The guide supports ROG Chakram series


Joystick Mapping Guide
In Digital mode, the joystick works in four directions, and can be programmed for additional controls for first-person-shooter (FPS) or battle royale games. Simply push to reload, switch weapons, tilt, or open up in-game maps and more.
The two bundled joysticks cater to different hand sizes and play styles. They can be removed when not in use, and you can fit the socket cover for a flush panel.

FOR THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE

ROG Chakram Core is engineered for an exceptional gaming experience, with features that elevate it beyond the competition.
Shorter travel means quicker clicks, which is why ROG engineers equipped ROG Chakram Core with pivoted buttons. The mechanism utilizes springs and metal hinges to balance the keys and minimize the distance between the buttons and switches. The upshot is minimal travel and rapid return, ensuring superb speed, responsiveness and consistency with every click.
