It is a button on the upper back of a controller. Its shape is similar to a firearm trigger (hence its name). It is usually analogic, so its action in the game varies depending on the pressure the player applies to it. Furthermore, the trigger is also a method used in development to detect when a character appears and make the environment react to that. For example, when a fight starts as soon as player arrive at a place.
