Works On Black Ops 2
Add The Arbiter 3.5 Mod To Any Of Our Custom PS3 Controllers!
! IMPORTANT !
When turning on controller do not press any buttons while the Player 3 indicator is flashing.
The chip initializes when the controller is first turned on and needs all triggers to be released.
Before the chip is ready to respond to any command, you must tell it to “activate” and become
ready to receive a command. To activate hold R1 and tap the (Start) button. As you do
this the Player 4 indicator light will come on.
To select a mode, first activate the chip by holding R1 and tapping the (Start) button so
the Player 4 LED comes on. You must activate the chip each time you want to change modes.
With the chip activated and the Player 4 LED turned on, hold R1 down and keep tapping the
(Left D-Pad) button however many times for the mode you want, and then release R1.
To select Mode 11 you would hold R1, tap (Left D-Pad) 11 times, and then release R1. The Player 3
LED will flash with each press of the (Left D-Pad), and then when releasing R1 will flash back the mode
number to confirm you are doing things correct. Slow flashes = 10, fast flashes = 1, so mode 11
is one slow flash, one fast flash.
Quick Enable / Disable
If at any point you want to quickly disable the chip, activate the chip (R1 + Start) then press (Left D-Pad)
without any other buttons pressed. The light will flash rapidly several times then go off. The
chip is now disabled. If you were previously in a mode and want to quickly get everything back
on, repeat the steps and it will re-enter where you left off.
One feature that makes the Arbiter 3 Elite Controllers so powerful (not available on A3 LiTE
controllers) is the ability to totally change its list of modes, effectively making the chip like a
whole new product. For example some chips on the market have modes specifically for Call of
Duty, others a general all-rounder’s, but no other chip has the ability to be all of those in one.
This is what the A3 ‘Chip Select’ is. You can change the A3 into a Specific List of modes that
best suit you!
As the Arbiter 3 has many Features that can be turned on and off and rapid fire speeds and
other timings that can be adjusted by the user sometimes you just want to factory restore the
chip to the beginning in case you forget that is active and what is altered.
To master reset the chip, activate (R1 + Start) then hold down (Square + Left D-Pad) for 6 seconds. After 6
seconds the light will fade in then fade out (pulse). Your chip is now reset.

* The buttons in brackets by each sub-section are the
activator buttons. To get into the modes within that
section just hold down those buttons instead of just R1
when pressing the Left D-Pad. Then you only need to
press the Left-DPad between 1 and 10 times depending
on the mode within that section
Chip Modes: Selecting the list of modes
This step is optional and only needs to be done each time you want to change the list of modes.
As standard the chip comes in LiTE mode. If at this stage you want to swap your list of modes
(Lite, Full, A2 etc…) then do the following after activating the chip.
To select Elite or Lite mode, hold (Left D-Pad) for 5 seconds.
To select Arbiter 2 mode, hold (X )button and then (Left D-Pad) for 5 seconds.
After the 5 seconds the Player 3 LED will flash a certain number of times to indicate the mode.
1 flash is Full, 2 flashes is Arbiter 2 and 4 flashes is LiTE.
Once you are in that chip select, that is it, you are good to go and don’t have to change it until
you want to change chips, even after the battery is removed. So select your desired chip once,
and then start using it. We recommend basic LiTE mode to begin with, which is what all
controllers are setup to be as default.
In Full mode only, because there are 70+ modes you don’t want to be pressing 270 times,
instead of just holding r, each mode section has “activator buttons” so you can get there
quicker. For example a Drop Shot + Aim section has (R1+L1+Circle) in the title,
and 10 modes in that section.
To get to Mode 6 within that list first activate the chip (R1+Start) then instead of holding R1
and tapping (Left D-Pad) you holdR1+L1+Circle, then tap (Left D-Pad) 6 times and release the buttons.
Tactile Layout / Battlefield 3
Some users like to use alternate button layouts for the games. For Call of Duty the popular
alternative is Tactile Layout, which swaps the Drop button and Knifing button (Cand right
thumbstick) around, so Circle will knife and the right thumb will drop. For Battlefield 3 the
dropping is by default the right thumb stick.
Obviously this causes problems with the Drop Shot feature.
Now when you use Drop Shots with remapping turned on, it will use the right thumb stick for
any Circle actions like Drop Shot.
To enable Tactile-Remapping, activate the chip (R1+ Start) then hold down the right thumb
stick (click it down) and tap (Left D-Pad). The Player 3 LED will flash twice to say it is enabled, and once
to say it is disabled. Each time you do this it will switch between being turned on or off.
A much desired feature for you Battlefield fans is Auto-Spot. In a multiplayer game or
Campaign, you can ‘spot’ enemies by looking at them and pressing (Select). This can be very
difficult to do during gameplay as the bbutton is in a difficult spot. On top of that you also
want to start shooting the enemy not just spotting them.
What Auto-spot does is as soon as you press lto look down your weapon, or even when you
shoot with R1 the chip will start spotting for you (pressing Select) thereby instantly spotting any
enemy you every shoot or look at!
As some of you may know, pressing btoo often results in you getting blocked for a few
seconds from spotting. Don’t worry – the A3 chip bypasses all of that and you never get a block.
To enable Auto-Spot, activate the chip (R1+ Start) then hold down (Select) and tap (Left D-Pad). ThePlayer
3 LED will flash twice to say it is enabled, and once to say it is disabled. Each time you do this it
will switch between being turned on or off.
In Drop-Shot modes, after dropping you to the floor and releasing R1 the chip automatically
stands you back up. If you would prefer it to leave you down after releasing R1 then you can
toggle the feature on/off.
To turn on/off Auto-Stand, activate the chip (R1_Start) and then hold down Circle and tap (Left D-Pad).
When you do this the Player 3 LED will flash twice to say it is turned on, or once to say it is
One of the little hidden extras of the A3 is a new feature called Auto-Run. How annoying is it
that you have to click in the left thumb stick all the time to run in games like Call of Duty? Not
only that but it increases the wear on your controller. Not any more, not with Auto Run!
With Auto-run turned on all you need to start running is press and release (L1). Now when you
push up on the left thumb stick you will instantly run continually. To de-activate a run just press
any other button such as X,Square,Circle, Triangle, R1 etc… To activate it again and start running just
press (L1) again.
To turn on/off Auto-Run, activate the chip (R1+Start) and then hold down the left thumb stick
(click it down) and tap (Left D-Pad). When you do this the Player 3 LED will flash twice to say it is turned
on, or once to say it is turned off. Each time you do this it will switch between being turned on
One of the best things about the Arbiter 3 is every single mode that uses Rapid Fire or timings
can have its speed completely customized for future proof games.
As default the speed of rapid fire is what we call Speed Mode 9. The slowest speed is Speed
Mode 50, and fastest is Speed Mode 1.
To adjust the speed of all modes on the chip, activate the chip (R1+Start) then go into the User
Programming Mode (by entering the “User Programming” mode from the list above as you would
enter any other mode by holding rand tapping 2however many times for the mode) and
you will notice when you release rthe Player 3 LED will stay on after entering the mode
instead of flashing back the mode number to you. You are now ready to adjust the speed. You
will start in whatever speed you were currently in, so if you haven’t done this before it will be
Speed Mode 9.
To increase the speed, press and release (L1)and Player 3 LED will flash once to indicate an
increase. You will now go to Speed Mode 8 (if you were in 9 to start with). You can test this
speed on the fly by holding (R1). To continue increasing the speed just press (L1) again and
again until you get to where you want. If you go too far, or want to slow down the speed hold
(X) and press (L1).
Once you are happy with your speed tap (Left D-Pad) with buttons pressed and it will flash back to you
the Speed Mode you are in. This speed is then hard saved into the chip and will be remembered
even when the battery is removed – you can now select any mode that uses Rapid Fire and see
the speed has totally changed.
NOTE: If you get a bit lost as to what speed your chip is now in you can reset it to Speed Mode 9
by going into User Programming Mode and holding Cfor 3 second. The Player 3 LED will flash a
few times then go off. The speed is now reset and you can go to any mode you like as before.
Tap Shot Timing Adjust
As well as the rapid fire speed, the timing of the Quick Scope Tap Shot can be fully adjusted.
To enter the “user programmable” mode for adjusting tap shot timings, you enter Tap Shot
mode as you normally would (you must be in Full chip mode) except as well as the normal
buttons of (R1+L1+Square), you also hold down the (R1) button. So instead of holding
R1+L1+Square and tapping (Left D-Pad) 7 times you hold(R1+L1+Square)then tap (Left D-Pad) 7 times
then release all buttons. Now the light will stay on instead of flashing back number 77.
You are now ready to tweak the timings. To adjust the timing you can increase/decrease the
speed (delay) between pressing (L1) and the gun firing.
To reduce the delay (shoots sooner) press and release Left Thumbstick. Each time you press
the Left Thumbstick the light will flash. You can test the new speed by tapping (L1) and it will
fire the gun briefly after that. The default time is 1/3rd
of a second after (L1) being pressed.
To slow down the speed (increase the delay) hold (X) when pressing Left Thumbstick.
Once you are happy with the timing tap (Left D-Pad) with no buttons pressed and the speed will be set.
