Razer has launched the Razer Wolverine V2 Pro game controller for the PlayStation 5 and PC with a focus on hardcore gamers.

The controller design supports custom control, precision and long-lasting comfort. The company’s intended audience is mid-to-hardcore console gamers – for esports, competitive co-op or online gaming, and advanced solo play.

The wireless controller features Razer HyperSpeed ​​Wireless for low-latency performance, similar to that of Razer’s gaming mice.

The Razer Wolverine V2 game controller has six programmable buttons.

It has Razer Mecha-Tactile Action Buttons for ultra-fast control with tactile feedback and an eight-way Microswitch D-Pad for articulate and precise control in fighting games. The controller also features Razer HyperTrigger for fast execution for mouse-like responses in FPS games.

It has six reassignable buttons and interchangeable thumbstick for custom layouts and control. You can use a bigger thumbstick in case you need it as a sniper.

And it has Powered by Razer Chroma RGB for more personalization. The controller costs $250 and €299.99 in Europe.

The Razer Hyperspeed Wireless technology that the company claims enables connections three times faster than any other wireless gaming technology. It operates on a 2.4GHz wireless connection through the USB Type A dongle.

Razer’s latest Wolverine game controller costs $250.

The Razer Mecha-Tactile Action Buttons were also used on the previous Razer Wolverine Ultimate.
This technology reduces the operating distance by 35% compared to that of the average membrane controller.

Two HyperTriggers, which are trigger-stop switches built into the back of the controller, allow you to adjust the pull distance of the RT and LT triggers. They provide a shorter pull – great for spamming shots in shooters.

The eight-way Microswitch D-Pad lets you feel and hear every directional push while the microswitches are engaged, allowing precise and deliberate movement when doing intricate combos. The eight-way D-Pad allows you to feel the clicks of the intercardiac directions for more precision in fighting games.

The controller has six additional multi-function buttons, including two bumpers on the top and four triggers on the back. You can remap them using the Razer Controller app on iOS and Android. In games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II and Apex Legends, you can crouch, slide, switch weapons, reload or jump without ever taking your hands off the thumbstick. That even helps the odds against mouse players.

The standard thumbstick caps on the controller are short and hollow out of the box. They are similar to those on a standard PlayStation DualSense. With two extra thumbsticks in the box, you can easily swap them out depending on your play style or ergonomic preference.

The first alternate option is long and hollow and is great for defensive shooters like snipers. The higher stick also provides more accuracy. Use it on the right thumbstick for more freedom of movement to position the reticle exactly where you want when you want to aim. The second thumbstick is short and curvaceous, ideal for offensive, run-and-gun shooters who like to use SMGs and shotguns.

The shorter stick gives you more speed. You can use it on the right thumbstick if you’re aiming for more speed, as your thumb is nimble on top rather than planted like a concave stick. Alternatively, you can use it on the left side for less fatigue when holding down the thumbstick for extended periods of time to cover long distances over large maps.

It is available exclusively at GameStop stores and Razer.com.
