The ButtKicker Gamer2 is a great accessory for all gamers (especially sim racers) - it adds a completely new level of immersion to your gaming, giving you feedback you never had before and really making you feel connected to the track. Once you've experienced a ButtKicker, you'll never race without one again! We stock the 240V version, compatible in the UK, and all countries with mains voltage between 220V-240V. The ButtKicker is compatible on PC and gaming consoles (with a mixing device); on PC you can install software to configure the device even more, whereas on console it functions as it does straight out the box.

The Gamer2 is a powerful device which attaches to your sim racing rig or office/gaming chair, and emits powerful pulses/vibrations, simulating the connection between the car and the track through providing shaking the cockpit/chair (i.e. haptic feedback). It is compatible with PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 & Wii, but gaming consoles like Xbox One & PS4, you will need an additional mixing device that transforms the stereo audio output signal into mono for the Gamer2 device (costs about £10) - we will gladly advise you of our recommended mixing device, just ask us.

When you are driving, the ButtKicker simulates the feeling of being on a physical track, that is, a track with bumps and undulations all over, and elevated kerbs and rumble strips - it transforms the track from a dull, unresponsive surface into a completely communicative, dynamic track surface, giving you lots of information that you previously missed out on.

Especially in the context of sim racing, it means now you feel every time you clip a kerb, run off onto rumble strip or drive over a bump in the track. It adds a totally new layer of immersion to your sim racing experience, giving you valuable information that will be sure to help you - after all, the more information & feedback you are able to get about the behaviour of your car, the faster you can drive - it's that simple.

 
Despite being powerful, when in use the Gamer2 isn't too loud, so you don't need to worry about waking family/neighbours if you're using it late at night. For maximum effect, customers frequently choose to buy multiple devices and attach them at different corners/end of their rig.

ButtKicker's can be quite fiddly to setup, in that, to get the maximum effect you must refine and optimise the settings, and though there are benchmarks/guidelines, the best method to optimise the settings for you is trial and error, so it takes a little while, but once optimised, the Gamer2 is absolutely fantastic. Setting refinements are only available on PC - on Xbox One/PS4, you are not able to refine the settings, as software is required to do this, obviously not available on a gaming console, so the full effect of the ButtKicker is felt on PC. Lots of sim racers will choose to use software such as SIMHUB, which allows you to configure the Gamer2 to respond much more authentically to car and track behaviour - indeed it is our recommendation from our own and lots of customer feedback; SIMHUB is free in its base version, and full license is as little as 5 euros, allows you all the configuration you will want!

Once you've used a ButtKicker, you'll never want to play a game again without one! It is a lot cheaper than buying a motion platform, and adds a complete new level of immersion to your sim racing experience, letting you feel the track like never before! 

 

Features

The ButtKicker Gamer2 adds instant immersion to any game. Unlike a subwoofer that moves air (and loses accuracy and force), ButtKicker products move actual mass producing a haptic immersion that's powerful and accurate.

For sim racers, the Gamer2 adds the missing driver to car connection, bringing more realism and immersion to your sessions - haptic (felt) feedback is a must have for sim racing. It is also a must have for shooters. The ButtKicker Gamer2 lets you feel incoming fire, pinpoint other players even while your squadmates are talking giving you a game changing tactical advantage - so it is a versatile product that you can use with many different games! 

Feel the low end without making the room loud. Turn down or turn off your subwoofer and still feel all the bass you want. Experience powerful bass even when using headphones or a gaming headset. The ButtKicker Gamer easily attaches to standard centre post office/gaming chairs.

Connection is simple to any PC or gaming console* and because the Gamer2 is audio (bass) driven it works natively with all content.

* Depending on the console model and the audio settings selected. PS4 and Xbox One users may require a separate digital to analogue audio converter/extractor depending on the system configuration - please contact us if you have any questions about this.

The Gamer2 Easy-Clamp mount allows mounting to any post up to 3.55cm in diameter, including square posts often found on sim racing cockpits and rigs.
Many sim racing rig manufacturers now offer custom mounting brackets for the Gamer2, so the Gamer2 is a must have addition.

The latest ButtKicker BKA-130-Ci Power Amplifier is rock-solid and cranks 90Watts of power into your seat. It’s convection-cooled with vents so there’s no noisy fan and it includes a wired remote control so you can place the amplifier out of sight and still operate its core features.

Includes a comprehensive cable set for connection to your analogue audio source.

Easy-Clamp™ mechanism lets you easily attach the Gamer2 transducer to your chair or sim rig.
