Razer Viper V2 Pro Review: Featherweight Performance in a Barebones Body

Cindy F. Cape

The Viper v2 Pro is the latest mouse offering from Razer. It builds off its predecessor,  the Viper Ultimate, and streamlines the design with esports players in mind. Things like the side buttons and side grips have been optimized, while other features such as RGB lighting have been stripped away altogether in the name of lightness. Previous highlights, such as the optical sensor, mouse switches, and even the battery, have been improved. In addition, the Viper V2 Pro has a multitude of new intelligent functions via the Razer Synapse software. 

Virtually everything about the Viper v2 Pro is an improvement over the previous Viper Ultimate, easily making it a contender for our best gaming mouse list. However, despite the functionality of the Viper v2’s weight-saving measures, something about its lightness and material makes the mouse feel a little cheap.
