After a drop onto tile flooring, the side clip of the outer handle snapped and got lodged into the trigger, causing it to only pull to 80% and go no further. Thanks for this breakdown.

My right trigger won't work on gta 5 and on other games it works

Very strange, Devean. That sounds more like a software problem than a hardware problem, if I had to guess. If you haven't already, maybe check to make sure that your control setup is correct.

Alternatively, see if you can find any other games that your RT doesn't work for, and see what they have in common with GTA - it might be that the trigger isn't registering as fully depressed, or only ever registering when fully depressed.
