Rapid Fire Mod for Xbox 360
 

Home

Again, the first thing I am going to write is that I did not create this mod or schematic for it.  I got the schematic from Xbox-Scene from JaradC01.  In this tutorial, you will learn how to make the rapid fire for a wireless Xbox 360 controller.  It is slightly bigger then the other rapid fire mod, but it does work on less voltage(like a wireless controller).  

 If you want this to work on the 360 wireless controller, you need to use a CMOS 555 timer(runs on 1.5 volts up to 16 volts, regular 555 takes  a higher voltage).

 

555 Timer - It has eight pins, and must be put in properly to work.  It is a very useful component and is used in many electronic projects.  It can be damaged by heat, but it would need to be alot of heat.  For more info on it, visit this link

Resistors – They have no polarity so it doesnt matter if you put them in backwards or forward.  They cant be damaged by heat.

 

Transistors – There are two kinds of them, NPN and PNP.  We will be using NPN and PNP.  They can be damaged by heat.  There are three different case styles so that means that their pins may be different in each style of case. 

 

Capacitors – Cant be damaged by heat.  Electrolytic(one kind we are using) has a polarity so if they are put in backwards, they wont work properly.  The positive and negative leads are usually marked somewhere on the body.  I am going to use a Tantalum for one of the two capacitors needed.  Tantalum capacitors also have a polatiry and the positive leg is marked on the body.

 

Diodes - Diodes are used for letting current flow only one way.  They have also have a polarity so they wont work unless installed properly. 

 

Variable Resistor(potentiometer, or trimmer) - It can adjust the resistance in a certain range, depending on the one that you use.  It can go by three names, variable resistor, potentiometer, or trimmer.  A trimmer is the style that I am going to use.

   ***Radio Shack does not have it.  Wire a 1k, 330, and 470 ohm  to make one

   *Radio Shack does not have them, they may be in a multi pack if you look

 

The transistors I listed in the parts list are substitutes for the ones in the schematic.  They do work fine though and you get 15 in each package so you can mess a couple up.

 

Here is the first schematic
