  1. So the Razer Basilisk FPS Mouse has just been revealed, a new design with a DPI clutch for sensitivity change for the price of $69. By holding the button, the mouse switches to your pre-set DPI level, for instance a lower DPI while sniping. Once you let go, the DPI changes back to normal. The clutch can be removed too. The Basilisk can also change the scroll wheel resistance.

    Anyways, the Deathadder Elite is known to be a popular choice in FPS gaming for a price of $69 also. Now with the new Basilisk with the same sensor, which one would you get?

    Why not both? Deathadder for general gaming, Basilisk for FPS gaming. Some of us like to have more than 1 mouse anyway. I have a Deathadder and Naga so far. Need more. :)

    Ya, I agree with this. Plus its coming from one of the cooler denizen's of the Razer forums.

    Next to me of course! :cool_:

    I'm with you here -- I only use one mouse per system, but I have a couple different full systems outfitted with Razer gear, and I use each system differently and for different games. If I really need to play a game that isn't common on my laptop, then I have a couple spare mice that I can swap in and out for my usual. Honestly, it has nothing to do with sensors for me but instead it's all about the comfort, weight, grip and feel depending on what I'm doing. I use a Naga Chroma (wired version) on my main PC and I trade out between the Naga Hex V2, the Naga 2014 or the Orochi V1 on my laptop depending on what I'm doing and how I want to hold the mouse.

    I actually do the same thing headsets as well, depending on what I'm using. I'm using the Leviathan or the Tiamat 7.1 V1 on my main PC and then I swap out between Leviathan Mini, Hammerhead Pro V2, Hammerhead BT or Adaro Stereo on my laptop/tablet/phone depending on what I'm doing, how long I'll be doing it for and whether or not I need a mic.

    I find that's the perfect way to ensure that you're always comfortable and always getting the exact specs/performance that you need depending on what you're using.

    Same dilemma for me, I have the deathadder chroma (which is perfect for CS:GO/Overwatch) but the middle button is not working anymore. was planning to buy a mamba tournament, but this FPS-oriented mouse changes everything. I know that the Mamba is a bit smaller than the deathadder, but i'm really looking forward a size comparison between the Basilisk and the Deathadder to make my choice!

    I currently use a Deathadder and it's served me well and has seen a lot of use over the last couple years, but now that the Basilisk has been released I'm definitely wondering if it's time for a replacement. Though, I think I'm probably going to hold off until I'm able to see how it feels in person.

    Since my last post, I bought a Basilisk, just putting here my first feelings regarding the differences between DA Chroma & Basilisk

    Side buttons are too small :/ I haven't even gotten my hands on one of these mice but I already know I will miss my DeathAdder's large side buttons for different settings since they are directly under my thumb. Until I get my hands on a Basilisk and it somehow changes my mind it's all about DeathAdder.
