Logitech G13, which is no longer in production, but can be picked up second-hand on Amazon, eBay etc.

Alternately, Azeron from https://azeron.eu. I highly recommend the Compact model rather than the Classic for console gaming.

I own all them and would go with Azeron Compact in a heartbeat, but supply is limited and they are currently very expensive.

Yes Azeron or Logitech G13 are the way to go (the G13 requires a large hand or else the analog stick placement may feel uncomfortable after a while).

Another great option would be the Razer Tartarus v2 if you have some soldering skills and want to follow the Tuffrabit Analog Stick Mod for it. Tuffrabit is also selling fully modded versions.

Thank you for the replies guys,i looked into these peripherals in the past.

I worded it out terribly,i am specifically looking for something like the Navi controller. Just a stick-like controller with an analog but i need somehing with more buttons than what the navi offers. Could it be that navi controller is the only option for my specific needs?

If you have a g502 or other mouse with a lot of buttons, just use the console controller! I use my Xbox controller with my left hand, and map most of the buttons to the mouse. It works really well.

Get a nav in the meantime. G502 and a nav will leave you with an unused button or two. Well 1 because of the Symmetra thing.

I KNOW! Its so good, i dont have a xbox one controller anymore though . The dualshock 4 is terrible for this because the joystick is in a very uncomfortable spot if you wanna hold it with 1 hand.

Im thinking of gettin a xbox one elite controller for the back paddel now ,hmm

Ah, that's too bad. I have a foam "holder" for my controller (no longer being sold), so I don't hold onto it at all. I rest it on the table, and rest my hand on top. No gripping required.

I play with an Azeron Compact, which is great but I also have my controller held on a flexible goose neck clamp (for a camera) that works well for the times I need to hold the controller (like half press trigger pulls etc)

If you play at a desk it's a good option as the controller "floats" above the desk, and can be moved up out of the way, or pulled down and then the controller is held lightly and you can also have your hand resting on the desk.
