Dual-mode wireless connections, hyper-responsive DAKOTA switch, diversified accessories, and longevity of power
The Mad Catz R.A.T. 8+ Adv wasn’t just one of my favourite gaming mice from the last year, it’s one of my favourite mice, period. A fully customisable modular mouse, the R.A.T. 8+ Adv was lacking one feature that would have made it perfect for me – wireless connectivity.
Well, it seems Mad Catz read my mind, and are releasing the R.A.T. DWS wireless mouse. The DWS shares the same interchangeable palm and pinkie rests with the solid build quality and unique styling that made me fall in love with the 8+ Adv, and adds Bluetooth 5.0 and 2.4 GHz wireless connection options.
The 2.4 GHz wireless connection provides a 1ms polling rate, while the Bluetooth low-latency mode can offer up to an incredible 300 hours of battery life.
“Choose Your Favorite Accessories as a Weapon
The additional modular accessories make every game become easier. Its adjustable palm rest and swappable pinkie rests can fit into every size of hands and accommodate all grip styles. These two sets of pinkie rest enhance the grip friction and prevent you from long-hour play discomfort.
Choose your favorite accessory and use it as your sharpest weapon to dominate and conquer your enemies!
Mad Catz DAKOTA™ Mechanical Switch
Although the spring is reinforced with the “Debounce Delay Algorithm” to keep its accuracy, over time, it loses its elasticity. Thus, a traditional mouse can easily transmit chaotic clicking signals.
Mad Catz DAKOTA Mechanical Switch utilizes advanced signal-detection technology to eliminate the bouncing and debouncing effect of the sensor spin. This technology accurately registers each signal and allows the spin to perform accurate clicks. Moreover, the technology accelerates the response time to within only 2 milliseconds – which is 60% faster than other mechanical switches!
Dual-Mode Wireless Connection
R.A.T. DWS is equipped with dual-mode wireless – 2.4GHz and Bluetooth 5.0 connections. The 2.4GHz wireless mode allows you to get access to a rapid 1ms response, also with the compatibility of wider range connection, while the low-latency Bluetooth mode can sustain to up to 300 hours with only one AA battery, which is engineered to optimize power consumption, allowing you to power through long hours of play.
16K Optical Sensor
Developed by the most famous manufacturer, the advanced PAW3335DB optical sensor offers a hyper-resolution of 16000 DPI, thereby providing a greater sensitivity that allows for an acute level of precision for victory.
The unique barrel scroll design on the R.A.T. DWS makes everything easier for gamers. By sliding the scroll to select different weapons under different situations, you can disrupt every offensive move under tough circumstances.
Nothing is more important than getting a headshot while in intense competition. The specially-designed precision aim button enables you to become the most dangerous sniper on the battlefield.
Up to 14 Programmable Buttons
Every complex command you take would be essential to your team. With the Mad Catz software, you can set up various advanced hotkeys and macros on each of 14 buttons onto 4 on-board profiles by which every magic spell or melee skill can be mastered in the fight.
The Mad Catz R.A.T. DWS will be available from early February 2021, with pricing yet to be revealed.
