Selecting Modes

To select a mode, hold RT and tap & release the Sync button however many times for the mode you want and then release RT.

 So to select Mode 11 you would hold RT, then tap the Sync button 11 times, and then release RT. The light will flash with each press of Sync, and then when releasing RT will flash back the number of the mode you are now in (in this case 11 times). The light doesn't flash 11 times for 11, or 77 times for 77 as you would be waiting forever. So what it does is flashes slowly for 10s, and fast for 1s. So 1 slow and 1 fast flash means (10 + 1) = Mode 11. If you entered Mode 64 it would flash 6 slow and 4 fast.

 

Quick Enable / Disable

If at any point you want to quickly disable the chip, simply tap Sync button 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, tap Sync again and it will re-enter where you left off.

 

Chip Modes

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!

 

Master Reset

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, turn on the controller, hold down X button, tap and release Sync but keep X held for 6 seconds. After 6 seconds the light will fade in then fade out (pulse). Your chip is now reset.

Customizing User List

The User List comes with 5 modes pre-set. To enter a User List mode is very fast and easy – sort of like a “Quick List”. 

 

To enter a User List Mode, hold the button for that mode and tap Sync. So for Mode A you would hold A and tap Sync, keep A held for 1 second then release. Quick, yeah?

 

It gets better! As there are so many modes to choose from, you may want to have a handful of your favourite modes at quick disposal. You can put any mode into the User List slots with ease so that you can add your 5 best modes and quickly switch between them with a single button press. 

 

To set a mode to the User List slot enter the mode you want as you would normally do, then whilst in that mode, hold the User Button (the A, B, X, Y or RB) and tap sync twice. The light will flash 1 to 5 times to indicate it is set. Release it before 5 seconds though!

* Hold Cancel: This means if you hold LT for longer than it would be before it tap shots (default 1/3rd of a second) then it won’t fire. This allows you to use Tap Shot mode and still aim without firing if needed.

  

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, Elite, A2 etc…) then do the following. 

To select Elite or Lite mode, hold Y, tap & release Sync and keep Y held for 6 seconds.

To select Arbiter 2 mode, hold A, tap & release Sync and keep A held for 6 seconds. 

To select GOW 3 mode, hold B, tap & release Sync and keep B held for 6 seconds.

1 flash is Elite, 2 flashes is Arbiter 2, 3 flashes is GOW3, 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.

 

Quick Select

In Elite mode only, because there are 70+ modes you don’t want to be pressing sync 70 times, instead of just holding RT, each mode section has “activator buttons” so you can get there quicker.

For example a Drop Shot + Aim section has (RT+LT+B) in the title then 10 modes in that section. To get to Mode 6 within that (Mode 26), instead of holding RT, you hold RT, LT and B then tap Sync 6 times. Wait 1 second then release all buttons. If you release them too quick the controller will disconnect so make sure you just wait a second. 

When you release the light will flash 2 slow and 6 fast to indicate mode 26.

 

Tactile Remapping 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 (B and Right Thumb) around, so B 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.

When you use Drop Shots with remapping turned on, it will use the right thumb stick for any B actions. 

To turn feature on/off hold down Right Thumbstick and then tap Sync.

When you do this the light will flash twice to say it is turned on, or once to say it is turned off. Each time you tap Sync it toggles on/off.

 

Battlefield Auto-Spot

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 Back button. This can be very difficult to do during gameplay as the Back button is in a difficult spot.

What Auto-spot does is as soon as you press LT to look down your weapon, or even when you shoot with RT the chip will start spotting for you (pressing Back) thereby instantly spotting any enemy you every shoot or look at!

As some of you may know, pressing Back too 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 turn feature on/off hold down Left Thumbstick, Right Thumbstick and RT and then tap Sync

When you do this the light will flash twice to say it is turned on, or once to say it is turned off. Each time you tap Sync it toggles on/off.

 

Auto-Stand

In Drop-Shot modes, after dropping you to the floor and releasing RT the chip automatically stands you back up. If you would prefer it to leave you down after releasing RT then you can toggle the feature on/off.

To turn feature on/off hold down Left Thumbstick and B, then tap Sync.

When you do this the light will flash twice to say it is turned on, or once to say it is turned off. Each time you tap Sync it toggles on/off.

 

Crouch Shot

In Drop-Shot modes by default you drop right to the floor. If you would prefer to just duck or crouch which gives you better movement, quicker recovery and quicker aiming, then you can swap all Drop Shot modes to use Crouch Shot. 

To turn feature on / off hold down Left Thumbstick, A and B, then Tap Sync

When you do this the light will flash twice to say it is turned on, or once to say it is turned off. Each time you tap Sync it toggles on/off.

 

Auto-Run

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 LT. 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 A, B, X, Y, RT, RB etc… To activate it again just pull LT. 

To turn feature on/off hold down Left Thumbstick and then tap Sync

When you do this the light will flash twice to say it is turned on, or once to say it is turned off. Each time you tap Sync it toggles on/off.

 

Quick Knife

For COD games you can enable Quick Knife. You need to have a Semtex grenade available. Knife and you will knife and recover faster so you can shoot/knife again almost immediately after.

To turn feature on/off hold down Left Thumbstick, B and Y and then tap Sync

When you do this the light will flash twice to say it is turned on, or once to say it is turned off. Each time you tap Sync it toggles on/off.

 

Gears of War 3: Auto-Chainsaw

For Gears of War 3, there is a new feature called Auto-Chainsaw. When you use a weapon with a chainsaw you can kill enemies by holding B to bring up the chainsaw. When you face an enemy who also has a chainsaw you have to rapidly press B as soon as the dual starts.

With Auto-Chainsaw enabled you simply have to hold the Left Thumbstick while B is pressed, then as soon as you enter the dual, release B but keep Left Thumbstick pressed and the chip will rapidly press B.

To turn feature on/off hold down Left Thumbstick and Right Thumbstick and then tap Sync

When you do this the light will flash twice to say it is turned on, or once to say it is turned off. Each time you tap Sync it toggles on/off.

 

Gears of War 3: Auto-Revive

For Gears of War 3, there is a new feature called Auto-Revive. When you get downed by an enemy, you must rapidly press A to revive.

With Auto-Revive enabled you simply have to hold the Left Thumbstick and tap A, and while you keep Left Thumbstick pressed the chip will rapidly press A. 

To turn feature on/off hold down Left Thumbstick and A and then tap Sync.

When you do this the light will flash twice to say it is turned on, or once to say it is turned off. Each time you tap Sync it toggles on/off.

 

Gears of War 3: Auto-Mark

For Gears of War 3, there is a new feature called Auto-Mark. When you aim at an enemy by holding LT you can press in the Left Thumbstick to mark them with a coloured tag that will follow them even behind objects and smoke so you can easily spot them and shoot them. Aiming, firing, and pressing the Left Thumbstick all the time can become hard work.

With Auto-Mark enabled you simply have to aim by holding LT and while you keep LT pressed the chip will rapidly press the Left Thumbstick. 

To turn feature on/off hold down Left Thumbstick and LT and then tap Sync

When you do this the light will flash twice to say it is turned on, or once to say it is turned off. Each time you tap Sync it toggles on/off.

 

Adjusting Speed

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 30. The slowest speed is Speed Mode 1, and fastest is Speed Mode 50 which is over 250 shots per second!

 

To adjust the speed of all modes on the chip, go into the User Programming Mode (by going into the User Programming mode which is Mode 10) and you will notice the light will stay on when you release RT 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 30.

 

To increase the speed, press and release LT. The light will also flash once to indicate an increase. You will now go to the next Speed Mode up (if you were in 30 to start with it will be 31).

 

You can test this speed on the fly by holding RT. To continue increasing the speed just press LT again until you get to where you want. If you go too far, or want to slow down the speed (i.e. go backwards one in the Speed Mode) then hold A while you press LT and instead of speeding up 1 it will slow down 1.

 

Once you are happy with your speed tap the Sync button with no other buttons pressed, and the light will flash back to you the Speed Mode you are in. So for Speed Mode 37 it would flash 3 times slowly and then 7 times fast.

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 lose track of the speed, you can easily reset the chip to Speed Mode 30 by going into User Programming Mode and then holding the B button for 3 seconds. The light will flash a few times to confirm.

HINT: Try Speed Mode 45 for Black Ops 2 on Snipers and Pistols!

 

Trigger Level Adjusting Speed

If you find using LT to adjust speed is a little slow, you can toggle into trigger level speed adjusting. Enter User Programming Mode as normal, but once in that mode, hold down X button for a few seconds and the light will flash a few times to indicate you are now in trigger level mode. The further you press RT the quicker the gun will fire. Pull the trigger down to the speed you would like and with it held there tap Sync to set the speed.

 

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 except instead of holding RT + LT + X, you hold RT, LT, X and RB then tap Sync 7 times. Remember to keep the buttons held for another second and then release them. 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 LT 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 LT and it will fire the gun briefly after that. The default time is 1/3rd of a second after LT being pressed. 

To slow down the speed (increase the delay) hold A when pressing Left Thumbstick.

Once you are happy with the timing set it by tapping Sync button with no buttons pressed.

 

GOW Fast Reload Timing Adjust

As well as the rapid fire speed, the timing of the Fast Reload for Gears of War games can also be adjusted to keep up with any adjustments in the timing for future patches.

 

Firstly make sure you are in the GOW3 chip mode so you can access the modes. Now to adjust the fast reload timings, enter any GOW mode as normal (hold RT then press Sync so many times) but instead of entering the mode with just RT held, enter it with RB held as well. So to adjust the timing of the Retro Lancer for example you would hold RT and RB and press Sync 2 times, keep the buttons held for a second and release them. 

 

You are now ready to tweak the timings. To adjust the timing you can increase the speed (so reduce the delay) between reload by pressing and releasing LT. Each time you press LT the light will flash. You can test the new speed by tapping RB. To slow down the speed (increase the delay) hold A when pressing LT

 

Once you are happy with the timing set it by tapping Sync button with no buttons pressed.
