Hi guys, just wanted to check if my Pro controller is working right or not.

I'm playing BOTW and the rumble on the pro controller is very weak compared to the joycons. Is this normal?

I've googled about and the few topics I could find had contradictory statements. I can feel vibrations very well on the joycons but the pro controller seems... underwhelming.

I can understand why given the size of it + battery life but just wondering if maybe mine is defective or not?

It's not just yours.
A week or so ago, my joycons started messing up. Left stick will move character on its own and L triggers stick badly at times. I decided to get another pair. Couldn't find any locally so I got the pro controller. I noticed that you can just barley feel the rumble. I didn't see any settings to change this. Maybe someone else knows more.

Now that you mention it, I remember one shrine in the last expansion of Zelda where you rotate a cube with balls in it and i could feel the different pulses of the rumble motors. In general it always felt like regular rumble...

I guess it's just much less apparent than in the Joy-Cons, I think Nintendo made the motors less powerful so it saved on batteries because my Pro controller's batterie feels like it never needs charging. (I think I can play 3 weeks before getting low)

Your controller isn't deffective, maybe we feel the rumble more in joy-cons because their sepperated and each joy-con gives feedback to each hand. having the motors of both sides in the same shell is bound to feel less intense, the vibration of one side will affect the vibration of the other side too...

Zelda BOTW does not use HD rumble, try other game
