So there is an INSANE issue for these controllers that can be considered a design flaw. There is something known as "intrinsic deadzone" on these controllers is about 15%-20% from what I have seen online. It doesn't matter whether or not it is adjusted in-game, the firmware takes over and makes the deadzone 15%-20% or higher depending on the game deadzone settings. An example of this would be if you set the deadzone to 5%, it would be overridden by the firmware and sets it to 15%-20%. If you set it to 25%, it would be 25%. The easiest solution for this would be to allow a software deadzone control. Another one could be a firmware update. Here are some videos/forums filled with people having this issue. CHECK EDIT 2!
This is honestly a shame because other than that, this controller is definitely the best on the market right now if this wasn't an issue. I will be sticking to my Wolverine Ultimate for now until this gets fixed.
Edit: There is another more detailed video on this issue. It is in Japanese but he has a more advanced testing methodology.
Edit 2: as of 12/3/2021 THIS ISSUE HAS BEEN FIXED! ALL U NEED TO DO IS GO TO THE RAZER APP AND CONFIGURE THE DEADZONE OPTION AND UPDATE YOUR CONTROLLER TO THE LATEST FIRMWARE!
My Black V2 latest firmware update reads as 184.108.40.206.
However my White V2 reads as 220.127.116.11.
And my V2 Chroma reads as 18.104.22.168
No issues with any of them so far.
So, they released the new firmware for the V2 White, but not the V2 basic? This is crazy. Does your V2 White allow you to change the deadzone in the razer app?
However, as part of our ongoing security measures, we apologize for not being able to provide further support for your Razer product.
Apparently "V2 black" will not be updated. Maybe other owners should also write to support?
The support added:
We appreciate your honest feedback on this matter and have included your request in our Features Request Poll. Depending on the demand and feasibility of your request, this feature might or might not be implemented.
So... If you need a dead zone setup for V2 black, don't be lazy!))
As of July 17th 2022 the Wolverine V2 "Basic" does not have the software/firmware update that allows deadzone customization. It does not have it; as far as I know only the V2 Chroma does.
Here’s me DEMONSTRATING the actual problem with the v2 controller. I know I’m crying too much but I can’t play any FPS games if the deadzone is so high
Do you think there is a chance or i must request a refund? I've also sent my problem to support. But i'm getting hopeless by this point.
Razer is doing a terrible job towards these controlers smh
Got it as a Christmas present and quickly realized the deadzone issue, I’m surely never buying a Razer controller ever
Not even mentioning the problem I had with the intrinsic deadzone on the V2 "Basic". Truth be told, by this point the fault is wholly on me, I knew I was dealing with garbage products from a garbage company but I kept buying Razer controllers because they're the only ones who have the extra Top Shoulder buttons.
Never buying Razer again. Waste of time and money. No button is worth the hassle. Live and learn.
I just had my right bumper break on my Ultimate after two years, trying to decided if I want another or just get a XBox controller. I will miss the back buttons on the Razer's though
