    I'm not sure why you'd want anything but k/b and mouse for a shooting game... But if a controller is a must I still rock a 360 pad, 6 years still going strong.

    When it comes to xbox controllers always buy official ones not the knock offs.
    You can get a good deal on a wired controllers around $30US on amazon most of the time, and wireless will of course be much more, but I couldn't stand going through batteries left and right after a week.

    I mention using the official xbox controllers simply because the drivers are plug, and play. Most games will instantly notice the controller being enabled, and give you the bindings correctly to each button on the controller. The knock off's I'v tried in the past usually have shit drivers, and sometimes the games wouldn't even detect the binding layouts. Overall I would suggest sacrificing a few bucks not to have to worry about having to fiddle with all that non-sense.
