Razer Basilisk Features Esports-Grade Optical Sensor For “Ultimate” Accuracy

The Razer Basilisk is a new product from the the leading manufacturer of gaming peripherals for competitive players in the first-person shooter genre.

The company is claiming it to be the “ultimate gaming mouse” for those wanting smooth performance and extreme precision. Hence, the peripheral is naturally powered by Razer Chroma. Besides that, it features an advanced optical sensor that is designed specifically for esports and a dial at the bottom that allows the player to customize the resistance of the scroll wheel for a more personalized experience.

In addition, the Razer Basilisk comes equipped with a removable clutch plate for the thumb that changes sensitivity on the fly. This can be changed through the proprietary software to function for pretty much anything else in a game, such as binding it for reloading or push-to-talk.
