Wolverine V2 Chroma focuses on customization

A The first visible new feature offered by the Wolverine V2 Chroma is the configurable RGB lighting — the feature is relatively unobtrusive and replaces the green bands present on the sides of the common model with the illumination stripes. There are several other new features, however, starting with the extra buttons on the back and top of the controller.

The accessory has six extra buttons in total, with four triggers in the lower region and two bumpers in the upper region, inserted between the device’s traditional bumpers and triggers. Along with RGB, all are configured through a dedicated application for Xbox and PC, with the possibility of adjusting the sensitivity of commands and defining dedicated profiles for different titles.

Razer also highlights how the digital directional pad and action buttons on the face of the control use Mecha-Tactile technology, which employs brand-proprietary switches with 0 actuation67 mm, % less than competitive membrane controls. With this, the company promises response times of only 10 ms , without leaving the durability aside, with each of the buttons having a useful life of 3 million clicks.

Another novelty is the presence of Hair Trigger Mode, locks for traditional triggers that allow you to configure the actuation distance. Razer exemplifies a shorter operating distance for first-person shooters, allowing for faster player commands, or longer for racing games, improving acceleration feedback.

Completing the news, the analog sticks follow the mold of advanced controllers, such as the Xbox Elite Controller, and are interchangeable. Two models were exhibited: one with a smaller height and a rounded surface, for greater speed, and a larger one with a flatter surface, designed to offer greater precision of movement.

Price and availability

The Razer Wolverine V2 Chroma is now available abroad, with a suggested price of US$ 161,67, or something around R$ 790, in direct conversion. There is still no information about the arrival of the accessory in Brazil.
