Marking the company’s first major retail collaboration, KontrolFreek products currently available in Best Buy stores include:

  • FPS Freek Phantom – Inspired by the immensely popular “Call of Duty: Ghosts” game, the Phantom is designed for first-person shooter medium-to-long-range combat situations typical of the COD franchise. Phantom is available for both Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One consoles for $14.99 each.

Two new ‘GamerPack’ bundles, available exclusively for Best Buy customers, pair the best-selling KontrolFreek Ultra with another favorite KontrolFreek product:

  • GamerPack Vortex – FPS Freek Vortex features one full size, convex stick designed for precision and accuracy, and one shorter stick that’s concave for comfort and grip, together with KontrolFreek Ultra. Available for both Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One consoles for $21.99 each.
  • GamerPack Signature - Pairs the KontrolFreek Ultra with the FPS Freek CQC Signature.
