Do you feel like your Dpad or ABXY buttons could be a bit more responsive or accurate, depending on how hard you push them down? Well, with eXtremeRate's new product, this may be something you can fix soon.


The eXtremeRate Face Clicky Kit for the Steam Deck is designed to make the Dpad, ABXY, and Start/Select buttons closer to their base. This can improve the responsiveness of pushing down the buttons, due to the new boards that the face buttons are placed on top of. The kit also gives the output of the button a mouse click-like sound when pushing down and has a very minimal chance of sticking, which I experienced a decent amount with the Steam Deck LCD's B button.

This seems like it could be a nice option for those who want more responsive buttons that have a similar feel and sound to clicky mechanical keyboards. And for $20, it may be worth checking out to see if this will have any positive influence during gameplay and overall feel.

The Face Clicky Kit is available for pre-order now for $19.99 without any exact date of release just yet. There is also no word if this supports the new Steam Deck OLED or if it's only for the older LCD models. The kit comes with the two boards, rubber pads, screwdriver, prying tool, and all screws/springs you may need. No soldering is required.
