Two questions I often get asked:

1) What's the use of pairing XIM with a scripting device (i.e. Titan Two)?

2) How do you map complex games to a Nav + mouse, with such a limited button count?

This example perfectly encapsulates both:

In Rainbow Six Siege - an incredibly complex game - the melee button is used for dual purposes: to melee (obviously) and also to lean right, which is triggered when you press the ADS button. The ADS acts as a modifier button, so to speak.

So why not create my own custom modifier? As you'll see in the video above, I use the crouch button as my modifier for leaning left. How cool is that? I call this feature "double up".

I've also used double taps to great effect - double tap the sprint button to perform a weapon change, for example. So you start needing say 12 buttons, but through modifiers and double taps you can easily bring this down to 9 or 10...or maybe even less.

So if you're ever wondering how on earth you squeeze "more" buttons out of a Nav...this is how:) You just have to get creative!
