Razer has announced the newest addition to their already expansive gaming mouse line the ultra-lightweight Viper V2 Pro.
Touted as 20% lighter than the Viper Ultimate, The Viper V2 Pro boasts of next-generation switches, better battery life and the addition of the Focus Pro 30K Optical Sensor.
We carefully considered each gram of the Viper V2 Pro to ensure that, in exchange for a lower weight, it wasn’t at the cost of other features, we are not content with simply cutting down on weight here. Both esports professionals and the greater mouse community played a significant role in the development of the Viper V2 Pro, addressing their comments, whether they are about switch and sensor improvements or something as simple as optimizing the protrusion of the side buttons.
Said Chris Mitchell, Head of Razer’s PC Gaming Division.
I think this mouse was built for me, the shape and weight are perfect in my hand and it feels like a natural extension of my body. It’s unlike anything else.
Said Jimmy “Marved” Nguyen, a professional VALORANT player for OpTic Gaming.
Marved in fact used the prototype of the Viper V2 Pro during the 2022 VALORANT Champions Tour and racked up with 35 kills. Also earning the MVP title during the grand finals.
The Focus Pro 30K Optical Sensor
Razer’s new Focus Pro 30K Optical Sensor boasts of achieving a complete resolution accuracy of 99.8%. This new sensor is equipped with AI functionality such as Smart Tracking, Motion Sync and Asymmetric Cut-off. The Asymmetric Cut-off feature has been enhanced to support up to 26 granular levels of height adjustment compared to 3 in the previous version. This wider array of customization enables users to set a lift-off and landing distance that is tuned to their playstyle.
The Viper V2 Pro features the new Razer Optical Mouse Switches Gen-3 for absolutely zero double-clicking issues and no debounce delay. These new switches are rated for a click lifecycle of up to 90 million clicks, increasing the value proposition over 25% from the previous generation switch’s lifespan.
The Viper V2 Pro was built from the ground up with the best players in the world, with the goal to provide them with a revolution able to improve their performance we’ve been gathering critical feedback from our players throughout development of the mouse and time and time again we heard that weight, sensors, and switches far and away were most important. We doubled down on all three of those and the result really speaks for itself: try it and you’ll never let it go.
Said Flo Gutierrez, Director of Global Esports at Razer.
The mouse is now rechargeable via USB-C and features a DPI control button on the bottom of the mouse unlike it’s predecessors. Additional grip tapes pre-cut to the Viper V2 Pro’s shape, a Razer Speedflex charging cable and 2.4GHz HyperSpeed USB dongle extender come in the box with the Viper V2 Pro.
The mouse also comes in both black and white colors.
