If there’s one thing most of us know we need when it comes to competitive gaming, it’s all the help we can get. And we’ve found no more of it in our elusive gaming careers than when we finally made the change to authentic, fully-fledged gaming mice that complimented our individual styles.
Every movement becomes an extension of your senses with the right kit, each reactive twitch in the real world perfectly mimicked in-game. And if you think we’re being overdramatic, then you’d be right. We just enjoy a nice mouse, that’s all, and nobody said we couldn’t zhuzh our copy up a little. Speaking of the right kit, the HP Omen Reactor mouse is now $15 off in the HP Store Back to School sale. An absolute bargain.
You know the fastest thing in the universe? Yeah, light. That’s what the switches on the Reactor mouse utilise to offer rapid actuation in-game. It may sound like overkill, but the optical switch has quite a few benefits over the usual mechanical style. Not only do they keep the time between your body’s reactions and the action on screen to a minimum – which is often the difference between virtual life and death – but they also last for 50 million clicks (which, coincidentally, is the same number of clicks it takes for us to nail that hip-fire headshot).
