ASUS Republic of Gamers Announces Gladius II Gaming Mouse
Bohs Hansen / 2 months ago
ASUS’ Republic of Gamers (ROG) announced the new Gladius II gaming mouse as the successor to the popular ROG Gladius optical gaming mouse. Gladius II features an ergonomic right-handed design that is optimised for first-person shooter (FPS) games.
The Gladius II is designed for right-handed use, but it is usable for all grip types. It also features the exclusive ASUS push-fit switch socket design that allows gamers to vary click resistance. A mouse optimised for your gameplay can mean the difference between a frag and the end of your game. It also extends the lifespan of the mouse with the ability to replace worn switches.
Gladius II uses durable Omron mouse switches that are rated to at least 50 million clicks, and is bundled with an additional pair of high-quality Japanese-made Omron switches should gamers want a different click feel.
Gladius II has a DPI switch that allows for instant switching between two sensitivity levels. It also features a DPI target button: Holding the button down lowers the DPI for more accurate sniping or raises it for faster scrolling across the screen; default DPI settings return as soon as the button is released. The sensor is a high-end 12000 DPI optical sensor that should ensure the speed, resolution, and accuracy needed for FPS gaming.
The RGB feature is ASUS Aura compatible, allowing you to sync it with the rest of your setup.
ASUS designed the Gladius II to be perfect or home gaming as well as LAN parties. It comes with a 2-meter braided cable for desktop use and a 1-meter rubber cable for when you’re on the road. A special locking mechanism secures the cable in place, and a quick-release switch at the bottom of Gladius II releases the micro-USB cable with one swift movement.
The new ASUS ROG Gladius II gaming mouse is available mid-March at leading retailers with a suggested retail price of £79.99. Not a small price for a mouse, but considering that the key switches are the first thing to go in any mouse and they can be replaced, it’s a great deal.
