Razer Basilisk: a superbly customisable mouse for FPS fans which won’t break the bank

If you’re thinking of gaming mice, probably the first name that springs to mind is Razer. And for those seeking a mouse which is ideal for first-person shooters, bristling with a raft of customisation possibilities so you can fully tailor it exactly how you like, Razer makes a highly affordable option in the form of the Basilisk.

This well-respected stalwart of a gaming mouse is built around the same 5G optical sensor (with true 16,000 DPI sensitivity) as seen in Razer’s famous DeathAdder Elite. The Basilisk offers a tracking speed of up to 450-inches per second (IPS) and up to 50G acceleration.

It also comes with eight programmable buttons, and a fully ergonomic right-handed design, along with rubber side grips to help you stay more in control of the mouse when deep in fast-and-furious action in your favourite shooter. Razer’s Basilisk has mechanical mouse buttons which are rated for up to 50 million clicks, so there’s durability in spades here, too.
