- Special-Edition Performance Thumbsticks & No-Slip Thumb Grips Inspired by the Iconic Konni Group Insignia -
CHICAGO – OCTOBER 30, 2023 – KontrolFreek®™, the creator of Performance Gaming Gear™, today unveiled their latest collaboration with Activision to celebrate the launch of Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® III on Friday, November 10.
In the direct sequel to the record-breaking Modern Warfare II, Captain Price, and Task Force 141 face off against the ultimate threat. The ultranationalist Vladimir Makarov is extending his grasp across the world, causing Task Force 141 to fight like never before. Designed for the newest chapter in the Call of Duty series and curated for console gamers, the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III x KontrolFreek performance gear logo is inspired by the Konni Group, a Russian private military company and antagonistic faction featured in the Call of Duty franchise.
Red, black, and clear color schemes bring the iconic laser-etched logo to life with three colorway options for the KontrolFreek® Performance Thumbsticks, two colorway options for the KontrolFreek Thumb Grips, and an unfailing red-on-black colorway adorns a special collector’s edition set of Thumbsticks that come with a custom metal weapons crate. Utilizing the science of ergonomics, the special edition Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III x KontrolFreek performance gear helps improve gameplay by upgrading the controller’s precision, aiming, and movement in the fight against the ultimate threat in the campaign or while conquering the modernized maps from the original Modern Ware II (2009) and exploring new Ground War maps.
