Razer has added yet another peripheral to its gaming portfolio. The company introduced the Basilisk gaming mouse, designed especially with FPS gamers in mind.
The customizable scroll wheel, as well as the clutch, are said to be among Basilisk’s biggest selling points. The clutch provides gamers with optimal comfort during gaming sessions. As for the scroll wheel, its level of resistance can be increased/ decreased so that it meets the playing style of every customer.
The default configuration of the clutch is a temporary DPI adjustment, which can be useful in sniping situations. The Basilisk ships with two clutches as well as an end cap in case the player does not want to use a clutch.
The Basilisk features a 5G optical sensor; it also offers five sensitivity presets and a DPI in the range of 200-16,000. The “item pickup” feature hints at the possibility that the mouse design has been inspired by the PUBG constantly growing popularity. According to Razer’s CEO Min-Liang Tan, the Basilisk is the ultimate gaming mouse for CS:GO, Quake, PUBG, and similar shooters requiring fast movements.
The Basilisk is a strictly corded mouse that lacks the ambidextrous design of the Lancehead sporting similar features. All available features are customizable via the Razer Synapse 3 software.
Razer has not specified a release date, but players will be able to purchase it via the Razer store sometime in September. The Basilisk will be available at major online retailers in Q4 of 2017 at a suggested price of $69.99 / EU € 69.99.
