Razer's Basilisk V2 mouse has an adjustable scroll wheel, two finely textured finger grips, better gliding feet and a more accurate sensor that offers DPI up to 20,000. The mouse also has the signature "clutch," a small, optional thumb button that's especially helpful for dots-per-inch (DPI) sensitivity-lowering maneuvers. To reprogram buttons or adjust the RGB lighting, you use the Razer Synapse software.
