So I saw a similar thread on here maybe a week ago and someone posted a video showing a quick fix process. I've googled and checked youtube but not found the right video, there's lots of 'controller fixes' but they relate to other problems.

Basically when I push the L3 button to run other inputs occur - most often I switch guns or crouch or jump or fire a shot. Obviously each time I stop running. It's an absolute game breaker, I can't play at all. Two controllers, they both do it.

This video described a quick fix involving using electrical tape to beef up something below the button to keep a buffer space between it and the other inputs, or something. Does anyone know where I can find this video?
Yeah reading a whole lot of truth must hurt your brain.
Maybe if you pray hard enough Jesus will cut off my internet.

You are in luck! I just did this and it has saved my life lol. Fixed two controllers with the same prob. You need a jewelers philips head and a piece of electrical tape.

If link doesn't work, since im on a phone, just search youtube for ps3 controller fix. A few down will be "Ps3 controller problems (easy fix).

Thanks to the poster that showed this to me before.

That's exactly it! You're a lifesaver. Now to see if I'm capable of these repairs.

Lol, it wasn't complaining about lag compensation, spawns, or t95 so it was likely ignored by most. :p

Oh hey, youre the gentleman that posted it before. Thx. :)

OK, the fix is easy enough, but I can't put the controller back together without one or both of the trigger buttons breaking. Getting very frustrated.

Alright, looks like I fixed the one, just need to play test it. but the other one, the whole trigger contraption came apart in my hands, and I snapped the controller right in half. Well, before I had two broken controllers and now I have one working controller. Can't be too mad.

Whoa....

I broke the triggers about 9 times. You just have to pop them back in place.

I might have to look something up... my R2 trigger (ADS) keeps going off/on when I press it.

It annoys me and makes me look stupid when I keep going ADS, hip, ADS, hip...
It's stupid when it looks like I'm trying to quickscope with a gun's Iron Sights... >_>
