First-Person Shooter – or FPS – games, have been a perennial favourite amongst online gamers: with evergreen franchises like Battlefield, Half Life (Counter-Strike), and newer installations like Overwatch and Arma attracting legions of FPS players alike.
New in Razer’s stellar line-up of gaming peripherals, the Razer Basilisk, which specifically targets FPS gaming, promises to impress with purpose-built features and design characteristics. At 107g, the Basilisk’s ergonomic right-handed form features eight independently programmable Hyperesponse buttons, and its Razer Mechanical Mouse Switches boast an industry-best 50 million click lifespan. On board is the same 5G true 16,000 DPI optical sensor used in the celebrated Razer DeathAdder Elite and Razer Lancehead Tournament Edition.
Customizability-wise, the resistance of the scroll wheel can be adjusted to preference on a continuum via a dial on the underside, and a removable clutch, which comes in two lengths, allows access to additional mouse actions: the default setting lowers DPI instantaneously for precision tracking for precise shooting. A rubber thumb cap is included for players who opt to game without the clutch.
The Razer Basilisk also features the iconic Chroma LED lighting and is available on razerzone.com from September 2017 and worldwide in Q4 2017 for the following Recommended Retail Prices:
