I have one controller that keep doing that for me....I did the the alcohol q-tip trick, let it sit overnight, then did it again, but made sure the tiny lip on the joycon stick was up enough to let a good amount of alcohol to soak down into the actual controller...yea not a sure fix, but works. If still drifts, then do again, and soak even more down into the underneath and wiggle stick around for a min, then let sit to dry.
Monster Hunter Rise royally clogged my right Joycon. I've never experienced any kind of drift until i started playing that bloody game. Now the Switch is acting like im pushing the R3 joystick to the right while im not even touching it. I have to recalibrate every time.
Got a switch on launch, I've had drift for literal years lmao. I used to play smash a lot with the joycons (now I have a Gamecube controller because I'm not a masochist) which basically ruined them. A month ago I bought new joysticks to fix them and while installing them I accidentally disconnected the battery that holds power for my left joycon and I can't solder it back onto the board because I don't have the equipment/experience so it's effectively useless. The right joycon works great though!
I could just go to a repair place and have it resoldered but ugh... that's a lot of work.
I just have the pair that came with the Switch and the right JoyCon is fine, but the left one sometimes drifts so much that it's impossible to play anything. Oddly though, if I give it a week without touching it, the drift will be gone for a few hours but it always comes back.
Thanks to sys-con, I can use my XBox 360 controller to play my Switch, so I don't really care that much.
One of mine acts up every now and then, but it bothered me enough that I got a replacement part and fixed it. The trick is to buy a really nice set of screwdrivers (splurge a little - like a Wowstick), then you'll feel like you need to fix everything, drifting joycons included.
its bad when you dont touch n-switch for mounths but after you play at least 1 hour, it becomes okay/tolerable but ım talking about normal games like mario 3d world-odssey, not doom 2016 (didnt tested hardcore fps games)
its not a matter of how "baboon" like you are on the joycons, it's literally down to hours of use... I just took apart a set and cleaned the internals (took the actual joystick assembly apart and cleaned the PCB) Worked fantastic, and beats sending more junk to Ewaste. People try and use q tips dripping under the rubber boot, but they'll last far more longterm if you actually remove the metal shield and take the stick apart. You can clean the contacts far better this way.
i have two pairs of joycons
the original ones and a replacement pair
while having the first ones, i often let the switch lie around anywhere for longer periods of time (like more than a day)
they have a bit drift while playing
but since i have the replacement ones i always store my switch vertical in the dock.
they have no drift.
I'm really invested in Wii and GameCube right now but I still think Nintendo made some unforgivably bad design choices with it , but maybe it's forgivable cause 2006 but then again ps3 is also from 2006
