So what is it about the Naga Hex that makes it just right for games like Dota 2 and League of Legends? Well, let’s take a closer look!


The Razer Naga Hex: Gear Up for the Battle

Arm yourself with the right gear and fearlessly jump into combat with Razer’s Naga Hex gaming mouse, designed specifically for the action RPG and MOBA genres. Inspired by the award winning Razer Naga MMO gaming mouse, which featured a 12 button thumb grid, the Naga Hex sports six large thumb buttons, specifically optimized for the user interfaces found in action RPG and MOBA gaming genres. Gamers can map spells, items and abilities from these games directly into these six buttons, thus providing them with extraordinary game control. The Naga Hex’s six thumb buttons have been designed based on a mechanical key infrastructure, which offers gamers faster key actuation. This provides you with the edge, necessary to attack faster than your enemies can react – something that is absolutely essential when it comes to winning high pressure battles in the arena. The buttons are arranged in a hexagonal pattern and has a rubber nub in the center, where you can rest your thumb and which can even act as a point of reference.

And that’s not all! The Razer Naga Hex has an ergonomic curved design, (developed by some of the best ergonomic engineers in the world), which ensures that you can harass your enemies and continue to hack and slash for longer durations in comfort. The design of the Naga Hex gaming mouse has been proven to reduce fatigue during extended gameplay, by conforming to the hands and preventing tension in the wrist and hand caused by pinching the mouse whether you are gaming at home or at a tournament.

This is what Razer USA’s president, Robert ‘RazerGuy’ Krakoff had to say about the Naga Hex, “I believe that having the right abilities available is the difference between slaying enemies and winning, or dying a miserable death and having your character wiped in hardcore mode. That’s why we designed the Razer Naga Hex – we believe that the six mechanical thumb buttons are going to help gamers stay ahead of the competition with the best ergonomic control.”


The Razer Naga Hex: What Makes it the Best for Action RPG and MOBA

Here are the features that make the Razer Naga Hex, the perfect gaming mouse for action RPG and MOBA games like Dota 2 and the League of Legends -

Six MOBA/Action RPG Optimized Mechanical Thumb Buttons – The Razer Naga Hex comes with six large mechanical thumb keys, which have been specifically optimized for action RPG and MOBA gameplay. You can now bind your six most powerful skills, spells and items to these six keys on the Naga Hex for rapid actuation and trailblazing gameplay. Also, the Naga Hex instead of using standard membrane switches makes use of mechanical switches on both the top and side buttons. These mechanical switches have a shorter travel distance and allow gamers to press it at faster rates, something that is essential in MOBA and action RPG games. Besides that, there’s also an audible and a tactile ‘click’ feedback, when the button gets actuated.

High Performance Buttons – With MOBA and action RPG games, intensive clicking is what you need for delivering relentless killing blows on your enemies. When playing games like Dota 2 and League of Legends, you will need a mouse that can keep with such high click rates and fast gameplay. The mechanical switches on the Naga Hex can track up to a mind-blowing 250 clicks a minute (which averages out to 4 clicks a second) ensuring accuracy even while you are clicking up a frenzy! Besides that, the buttons have an increased durability with a lifecycle of 10 million clicks, which is about three times the lifecycle of standard mice. Also, the Naga Hex features interchangeable rubber thumb rests. These rubber rests have been textured to offer a better grip and are interchangeable with three different heights, so now you can customize the Naga Hex to your gaming style and preferences.

Razer Synapse 2.0 – Razer Synapse 2.0 is the most advanced cloud software created for gaming. This cutting edge software basically functions like the Naga Hex’s brain, which automatically syncs the mouse to a cloud based server for downloading drivers and firmware updates. That’s not all though, it even saves individual gamer settings without you lifting a single finger. Also, the capabilities of Razer Synapse 2.0 will be expanded specifically for the Naga Hex, for storing the settings for a customized Razer in game user interface developed specially, just for action RPG and MOBA gamers.

I just got my Razer Naga Hex in today!… I’m loving the feel of it so far, especially the ‘pinky shelf’. The thumb buttons are perfect for item actives, so much easier than reaching away from the skill keys. ~ FoxCharge
