Razer's latest mouse features state-of-the-art technology that will help gamers take their FPS gaming to the next level, introducing the new Razer Basilisk. Equipped with the same 16,000 DPI optical sensor that's used in the Razer DeathAdder Elite and Razer Lancehead Tournament Edition and complimented with mechanical mouse switches, the Razer Basilisk delivers precision accuracy that is demanded by hardcore FPS gamers.




"The customizability of the Razer Basilisk sets it apart from other FPS mice, and is something that we're incredibly proud of," says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. "This is a mouse designed for tweaking that last ounce of performance out of each gamer's specific FPS playstyle. For games like CS:GO, PUBG, Quake, and the likes, there's nothing better."


With a unique clutch featured on the side of the mouse, the removable clutch comes in two sizes to cater for different hand sizes with the default action acting as a precision aim. The precision aim macro gives the user the ability to temporarily reduce the DPI sensitivity on-the-fly to help deliver that epic headshot.




Aided by Razer Synapse 3 software, this allows for complete customization including. button remapping, surface calibration and Razer Chroma lighting effects. Speaking of RGB lighting effects, the Basilisk is on the passive side with only the scroll-wheel and razer emblem illuminated. Further customization is achieved with the ability to adjust the resistance of the scroll wheel can be adjusted via a dial on its underside to suit.


Available in September 2017 from, the Razer Basilisk will set you back $69.99USD.
