The Razer Basilisk wired optical gaming mouse is just $39.99 at Best Buy today. This mouse normally sells for around $60, and it’s going for as much as $70 at B&H, which is its MSRP. Today’s drop to $40 is a match for the lowest we’ve ever seen, and it’s a price we’ve only seen a couple times before.
One of the reasons we’re seeing the Basilisk go on sale is because the Basilisk V2 is out now. Of course the new version is super expensive by comparison, although it does offer some good improvements. You’ll have to judge that for yourself, but you’ll save plenty of money with the original Basilisk today.

The Basilisk was designed for games who prefer shooters like Valorant or Fortnite. It’s equipped with a 16,000 DPI 5G optical sensor, which is optimized for precision and speed. Your movements will be swift and you’ll keep on target with this mouse.
Thie Basilisk also comes with a removable DPI clutch. This is an extra button in perfect position for your thumb. You can program it to do whatever you want, but its default functionality is quick DPI adjustment. That can come in handy in fast-paced shooters and other games where you need to adjust your sensitivity on the fly. You can also reprogram it to make picking up gear in battle royales easier. And if you don’t like it, it is removable. The mouse comes with a regular cap you can add in its place so you get a bit more grip for your hand.
The mouse’s scroll wheel is also customizable. On the bottom of the mouse is a dial you can twist to adjust the resistance of the scroll wheel. It also has mechanical mice switches with extended durability, and the response time is fluid and precise so it’s accurate whether you play fast or slow.
Razer Chroma is a proprietary technology from Razer that basically gives you full RGB lighting on the mouse. You can adjust the logo and lights around the scroll wheel to any color you want. You can even apply dynamic lighting effects. And thanks to Chroma, you can sync those lighting options with all your other Razer gear and even third party programs like Philips Hue. Sync your entire workstation.
The Basilisk is compatible with Windows and Mac.
