Playstation has just released a new back button add-on attachment.
The new controller add-on allows you to program any button, including directions, to the 2 paddles.It attaches to the button of the controller and also has a stereo headphone jack.
Rooflemonger demonstrates in Dragon Ball FighterZ how the back button paddle can help with a super jump instant airdash. This gives a great advantage to allow fast low airdashes that are much more consistent.
He also brings up an example with Tekken on doing easy Korean Backdashes with the back button add-on. He programs a down and a left on each paddle and alternates the d-pad and paddles to get fast back dashes.
The last example is with E. Honda’s hundred hand slap. This technique is pretty difficult to do consistently on a pad but the add-on helps to get the 4 inputs required for a cleaner input.
You can pick up a PS4 back button attachment for $39.99 USD.
