Right-handers rejoice: Razer have just released the Basilisk, and it’s about as deadly as its namesake.
Touted as the world’s most advanced FPS gaming mouse, it’s hard to argue with Razer’s Basilisk. It features the same 5G, 16,000 DPI optical sensor as the DeathAdder Elite, and is capable of tracking up to 450 inches per second.
The Basilisk also features a number of programmable and removable buttons, including an easy-access clutch on the thumb side. There’s the option for a smaller sized clutch, or it can be completely removed altogether – but it’s really useful for temporary DPI adjustment, making sniping a breeze. Its location and function is also useful for actions that require you to press down for long periods of time; push to talk is infinitely easier.
The mouse features an adjustable resistance wheel (located underneath) which is useful for adjusting how quickly the wheel moves; again, helpful for things like bunny hopping. Being a Razer product, of course it comes equipped with their 16.8 million colour combination Chroma lighting.
The Basilisk’s only downfall that we can see is its right-handed preference – an ambidextrous design would make the already-close-to Basilisk perfect.
