Razer today announced the new Basilisk V3 wired gaming mouse, featuring a handful of features for gamers who wants a highly customizable and adjustable gaming mouse. The notable features of the Basilisk V3 include an intelligent scroll wheel with multiple modes, 10+1 programmable buttons, and of course, a heavy dose of Razer Chroma RGB for RGB lovers.
Starting off with the smart scroll wheel, the Basilisk V3 sports Razer’s ‘newly engineered’ smart Razer HyperScroll Tilt Wheel that will automatically shift between three unique modes, Tactile Scrolling, Smart-Reel, and Free-Spin Scrolling for gamers to easily adapt to any kind of situation in-game. In case if you’re interested to know what these modes do, here’s a brief description for your reference:
- Tactile Scrolling Mode: For high-precision and distinctly notched scrolling, ideal for cycling through weapons or skills.
- Smart-Reel Mode: Enabled via Razer Synapse, the scroll wheel automatically shifts from tactile to free-spin mode when you scroll faster.
- Free-Spin Scrolling Mode: For smooth, high-speed scrolling, perfect for covering content quickly or emulating repeated game commands.
Apart from the three modes, the Basilisk V3 also features Virtual Acceleration that can be enabled or disabled using Razer Synapse. When Virtual Acceleration is enabled, the mouse scrolling speed will increase depending on how fast it is spun, an interesting feature that is especially useful to make things easier when you need to navigate through walls of texts.
The Basilisk V3 is equipped with 10 easy-access buttons and 1 customizable profile switch button underneath the mouse, gamers can customize each of the 10 buttons with all the essential actions they need for their games. There’s a total of five onboard memory profiles on the Basilisk V3 and can be toggled between games with the profile buttons, a really useful feature for the nomadic gamers especially, so you don’t have to reassign the buttons all over again when switching between different PCs.
As for those who like fancy RGB lightings, the 11 Razer Chroma lighting zones on the Basilisk V3 will surely entice you. With RGB lighting zones around the mouse and an underglow with over 16.8 million colors and endless lighting effects, gamers can customize the RGB lightings on the Basilisk V3 that will intelligently sync and interact with over 150 Chroma-integrated games for a more immersive gaming experience.
And for the core components, the Basilisk V3 is also equipped with the Razer Focus+ 26K DPI Optical Sensor that features Asymmetric Cut-Off to allow gamers to customize the lift-off and landing distance according to their needs and Razer Optical Mouse Switches Gen-2 with an actuation speed of 0.2ms that also eliminates any risk of unintended double clicks.
