The PlayStation 5 has the Dualsense, but now the Xbox Series X/S consoles have the Razer Wolverine V2.
Razer today announced the $100 wired USB Wolverine V2 controller that brings enhanced precision and control to the new Xbox console lineup. The big selling point of the Wolverine V2 is the mecha-tactile buttons, which reduces actuation by up to 35% compared to existing controllers. The result is more crisp and noticeable button presses and less slip-ups during tense game moments.
One interesting feature is the Hair Trigger mode. This essentially makes the triggers incredibly sensitive, allowing you to shoot more with a more gentle trigger pull. It's ideal for FPS games or maybe even racing titles.
"Every millisecond matters in the heat of battle. For a competitive edge, activate Hair Trigger Mode via two slide-locks on the underside of the controller that greatly reduce travel distance to the main triggers, enabling an ultra-fast rate of fire with a gentle press."
The Wolverine V2 also connects directly to an app that lets you remap buttons, adjust sensitivity, and configure triggers on-the-fly. There's no RGB though, but it does come with a 3.5mm audio jack.
