Fortunately, stick drift doesn’t seem to be a hardware issue in the Steam Deck. Lawrence Yang, a Steam Deck team member, told The Verge that “there was a deadzone calibration issue introduced in a recent firmware update.”

Essentially, a firmware update caused a bug in the device’s software that led to this stick drift issue. As a result, the company has now sent out an update to fix the stick drift.

If you’ve noticed any stick drift issues on your own Steam Deck, make sure you have the latest updates installed. Head to Settings>System>Firmware Update to check for an update.
