If Razer’s recently released Pokémon-themed accessories are too cutesy for your taste and you would prefer something more tacti-cool, then their new PUBG: Battlegrounds collection might be the gear drop you have been waiting for. This collection was designed in partnership with KRAFTON, Inc. developer and publisher of the game and consists of the Viper V2 Pro wireless esports mouse, Huntsman V2 optical gaming keyboard and Razer Barracuda X multi-platform wireless headset.
All three of these peripherals have been given a unique PUBG: Battlegrounds makeover and now sport the game’s signature colours and iconic elements such as silhouettes of the airdrop crate, a player parachuting and motifs of the in-game map of Erangel and Miramar. However, besides the cool new makeover, the features and performance of the peripherals are the same as their non-PUBG versions.
The Viper V2 Pro is one of the brand’s lightest mice as it comes in at just 74g, which makes it 20% lighter than its predecessor the Viper Ultimate. With that said though, it still packs all the tech you need for responsive and smooth controls such as Razer Optical Mouse Switches Gen 3, Razer Focus Pro 30K optical sensor and support for true 4,000Hz wireless polling rate with the Razer HyperPolling Wireless Dongle.
As for the Huntsman V2, this optical gaming keyboard was designed to give gamers near-zero input latency. You can purchase it with either Linear Optical Switches (Red) or Clicky Optical Switches (Purple). The former is for those who want smooth and silent keystrokes while the latter is for those who prefer crisp and tactile feedback. Either way, both switches are said to have a 100-million keystroke lifespan and support up to true 8,000Hz polling rate. Also, for those who purchase the PUBG: Battlegrounds edition Huntsman V2 early, you might even receive a free limited edition (only 1337 pieces available) Razer Frying Pan Keycap.
The Barracuda X is a wireless gaming headset that you can use with your PC, console or mobile device and with its dual-wireless design and SmartSwitch feature, you can seamlessly switch from one to the other. These headphones will produce clear and immersive audio thanks to the Razer Triforce 40mm drivers. It is also no slouch in the communications department as it comes with the detachable Razer Hyperclear Cardioid mic.
Finally, for extra brownie points, each of these peripherals also comes with a redemption code in the box for you to receive exclusive in-game content. With the Viper V2 Pro, you receive a Razer Hat, with the Huntsman V2 Pro, you will receive a Razer Jacket and with the Barracuda X, you will get the Razer Pants and Shoes.
