Wake the F*CK up Samurai: Razer Viper Ultimate Cyberpunk 2077 Edition Review

Introduction

The Razer Viper Ultimate is an amazing gaming mouse that’s very versatile and handles every task flawlessly. It has an excellent performance, latency is extremely low, the design is perfect for lefties or righties, feels durable and it is remarkably comfortable. These are some of the reasons that make it our current favourite gaming mouse. With the launch of Cyberpunk 2077, Razer designed the Razer Viper Ultimate Cyberpunk 2077 Edition Wireless Gaming Mouse, which has the same great features as the original but also packs a cool, aggressive look that looks out of this world. The mouse comes with a pretty hefty price tag, but you will be investing in one of the highest tiers of mice that money can buy today, wither for gaming or professional activities. The limited edition mouse has the same features as the original, but we are going to go over every one of them today.

Think you’re ready for Night City? A word of advice: to survive in the big leagues, you need gear that always takes it to the Edge. With the Razer Viper Ultimate Cyberpunk 2077 Edition, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a companion as slick or as deadly when it comes to taking on the streets.

The Razer Viper Ultimate Cyberpunk 2077 Edition has friends in high places. Powered by Razer™ HyperSpeed Wireless, the mouse is backed by a super stable wireless performance that’s 25% faster than any other wireless tech available.

The Razer Viper Ultimate Cyberpunk 2077 Edition Wireless Gaming Mouse has the Razer™ HyperSpeed Wireless for a connection faster than wired mice, the Razer™ Focus+ 20K DPI Optical Sensor for cutting-edge precision, 2nd Gen Razer™ Optical Mouse Switch for actuation at the speed of light. The sensor has a very wide CPI range and you can adjust the sensitivity in small increments and the polling rate can be adjusted to 125Hz, 500Hz, or 1000Hz.

Packaging and Accessories

The Razer Viper Ultimate Cyberpunk 2077 Edition Wireless Gaming Mouse comes packed inside an atypical box for Razer, as the green accents are no longer present. This time we have a black and yellow box that matches the colors of the mouse.

On the back we have the “NOT ALL WIRELESS MICE ARE MADE EQUAL” Razer quote along with a graphical representation of the mouse, highlighting the main features.

The Razer Viper Ultimate Cyberpunk 2077 Edition Wireless Gaming Mouse comes packed with a matching charging dock and as soon as you open the box you can find both protected inside a perfectly cut-out padded foam material. Underneath we have a cable and instructions. Hidden inside the mouse is the USB-A dongle that will allow you to wirelessly connect the mouse to the computer.

Closer look

The Viper Ultimate has a fairly aggressive style on its own, but with the Razer Viper Ultimate Cyberpunk 2077 Edition Wireless Gaming Mouse the look is taken ever further. The design is bright yellow with black highlights, futuristic and has a barcode design, with “Neural Connection Status: Active” printed on it. In the middle we have the Cyberpunk 2077 logo and below we can find the full Razer logo, which is, of course, LED-lighted.

The mouse has an ambidextrous design with a low back. It is compact which makes it portable. The mouse itself measures 127mm long, 38mm tall and 66mm wide, weighing in at 74g. It also has a receiver storing slot under the mouse, so it’s quite easy to take it around with you if needed. The dongle can connect directly to the PC or inside the docking. It makes sense to connect it in the docking when using the mouse at home, but if you need to take it out you can simply plug it in any computer and you are good to go.

On the base is where the wireless dongle storage is, which is very easy to open for connection purposes, and the on/off button as well. You can change the DPI thanks to the handy button right above the on/off switch, and you can even double check the mouse’s current DPI settings thanks to the lights: red will be 400, green will be 800, blue at 1600, cyan at 2400 and yellow at 3200. The base is 100% PTFE, allowing for smooth mouse movements on many surfaces, if not all of them.

With the mouse comes the Razer Mouse Dock Chroma. As with the mouse, the dock is also entirely yellow, with a clear LED indicator for the battery level: green for full, yellow/orange as it hits 70% and below, and red when the battery is almost empty. The dock matches the mouse design perfectly and connects to the PC via a USB cable. In turn, the base has a USB connector to connect any other device and thus not lose the USB port of the computer. The dock has RGB lighting as well and you can either set the logo and the base to have the same lighting or individually assign them inside the Razer Synapse software.

Software

You can customize the mouse with the Razer Synapse and you have plenty of options to play with. You can ajust RGB lighting, remap the buttons, tweak DPI, adjust power settings and more.Unlike other producers, within the Synapse you can control all your Razer gear.

The Razer Viper Ultimate Cyberpunk 2077 Edition Wireless Gaming Mouse lets you store up to five mouse profiles in the onboard memory and you can take them with you wherever you go. Every button except the left click on the mouse can be re-assigned to a different function.

The current version of Razer’s Synapse software is an immensely-customizable software kit, once you’ve signed up, logged in and downloaded all the modules needed. You can also set up a HyperShift button, which changes the functions of every button when you hold a previously assigned key.

In the performance tab you can set the predefined DPI stages and change the polling rate to up to 1000 Hz.

The lighting tab lets you adjust the brightness and basic effects of the RGB. If you want advanced lighting features (even though they are only available on the Razer logo located under your palm), you can use the Chroma Studio.

You also have calibration option if you want to tweak your mouse based on your mousepad and power options, which are mandatory since you are using a wireless device.

Performance

We’ve looked over all the features and now it is time to put the mouse to the test. Testing a mouse is subjective so we will have to try it out in games(Counter-Strike:Global Offensive, Age of Empires and DOTA 2) and we will be using the MouseTester Software Reloaded (version 1.5.3).

The Razer Viper Ultimate Cyberpunk 2077 Mouse has been designed for all types of grips: palm grip (palm grip), finger grip (finger grip) and claw grip (claw grip). The optical shiwtches it carries are not very loud and, according to Razer, can withstand up to 70 million clicks. The Focus + ear sensor offers great performance at all levels. It offers great precision, even without using a mouse pad. Further, supports up to 20,000 real DPI. All this makes it an option to consider when looking for a high-end gaming mouse.

Playing wirelessly or with cable I have not noticed any difference. If there is more latency in wireless mode, the difference will be minimal. On the other hand, being able to change the sensitivity by pressing a button is a success, although it is not a novelty. However, there are mice that do not have this button and you have to change the sensitivity from a program provided by the brand.

I found the battery life quite good. At first it offers up to 70 hours of autonomy, which is not bad. For my part, I can only say that it lasted almost 5 days, so in this sense it complies. Anyway, if you ever run out of battery you can continue using the mouse by connecting the USB cable, that’s how it loads. No need to use the base.

Performance is quite simply amazing. Whilst it doesn’t have the features of adaptable side plates, the mouse is designed to cater for the most amount of people. The two buttons on each side are sufficient for any FPS game. In addition, the weight and overall comfort of the mouse makes it an incredibly productive accessory for anyone who just wants to work, video edit, photoshop etc. It therefore isn’t fair to just call the Viper Ultimate a gaming mouse. It is in fact a mouse that also enhances productivity in other areas.

Conclusion

The Razer Viper Ultimate Cyberpunk 2077 Edition Wireless Gaming Mouse is an AMAZING mouse. If you already have a Viper Ultimate, this one is exactly the same, has the same features and performance, but has a more aggressive look and feel. The mouse is also available in classic black and also has Mercury and Quartz editions available. The design is yours to choose from and you should get the one that fits your style the most. For a gaming style, we love the Cyberpunk 2077 edition the most. Putting the design aside, the Razer Viper Ultimate packs all the latest and best technologies Razer has in its portfolio. It has the best wireless technology which delivers the same performance wireless as with the cable, the battery life is great, the dock is included so when ever you are not using it you can charge it and it is fully customizable using the Razer Synapse software. The mouse is fit for any hands, small or large and for both lefties and righties, it is compact, lightweight and is great for both gaming and graphic work. It comes with a hefty price, but you pay for the premium features and this one has them all.
