I have a Xbox controller that has a busted lb button. I tried opening it twice and fixing, no luck. I'll try once more but I don't think it will work. I really don't want to spend 50$ on a new new.

Any button on any controller is any key on any game, all buttons are as 'vital' as each other.

If you need all buttons to play a game (Like... probably any game that's also playable on a console / PC Diablo), then you wont be able to use a controller missing any button.

LB is hardly used for anything important in most games... at worst you could map it to another button that sees around the same amount of usage like select(back) or L3/R3.

$50?

$28 + tax. That's the one I'm using now.

But... yeah, LB/RB is hardly used.

Just get a new one. Don't gimp yourself. You'll want all your buttons to be working, even if some are not used as much as others. They might be used heavily in games that do make use of them, like Dark Souls.

A cheap one like this will work just fine:

But if you want the official controller, it's not $50:
