Razer’s New Basilisk Mouse Custom Made For FPS Gaming
Razer has added another mouse to its diversified range, which the company states is specifically designed for FPS (first-person-shooter) gaming.
Utilising the fifth-generation optical sensor found in Razer’s DeathAdder Elite and Lancehead Tournament Edition mice, it’s newest Basilisk mouse boasts considerable customisation and personalisation, namely enough to set itself apart from other rival FPS mice.
The mouse offers adjustable resolution topping 16,000 dots per inch (DPI), and Razer’s Mechanical Mouse Switches which feature an industry-best lifespan of 50 million clicks.
Razer Co-Founder and Chief Executive, Min-Liang Tan states of the new design:
“The customisability of the Razer Basilisk sets it apart from other FPS mice, and is something that we’re incredibly proud of. This is a mouse designed for tweaking that last ounce of performance out of each gamer’s specific FPS play style. For games like CS: GO, PUBG, Quake, and the likes, there’s nothing better”.
Accompanying usual adjustment features (e.g. sensor resolution) the Basilisk mouse includes an adjustable scroll-wheel resistance through an underside dial. It also boasts a removable ‘clutch’, used to temporarily switch between low and high sensor resolutions, though it can be attached to any other function. It also includes long and short sizes – catering to various hand shapes – and surface calibration to increase the optical sensor’s accuracy.
Razer’s Basilisk, naturally, includes its Chroma programmable RGB lighting system.
The Basilisk is confirmed to launch in the United States later this month, and international availability is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2017.
Australians can also purchase the new Basilisk from Razer’s website in September 2017. The mouse will retail for A$109.95
