The Razer Mamba Tournament Edition looks like something out of a Madonna music video. The mouse has a great build that compliments all sorts of gamers, but specifically targets the FPS Gamer. The Razer Mamba Tournament Edition boasts on-the-fly DPI switching up to 16,000 DPI, an excellent body and an all-round rubber built to fit into any hand.

The Razer Mamba Tournament Edition is a wired mouse. However, this did not get in the way from experiencing any of the features that the mouse has to offer. The Razer Mamba Tournament Edition features a sleek ergonomic design with a stunning RGB lighting effect from the top to the bottom of it. The two strips down the side of the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition light up in 16.8 million colours, and it looks great when in use and not in use. This is an FPS mouse, so do not expect many G-keys on it. The Razer Mamba Tournament Edition has two extra thumb buttons for actions in-game, which can be assigned to anything. The usual left and right click, and the scroll button has two buttons to lower and increase the sensitivity on the fly.
The Razer Mamba Tournament Edition is large, but light at the same time and feels great in your hand. You never miss a click thanks to the large click buttons and the design of the mouse makes it fit perfectly into your hand. The Razer Mamba Tournament Edition also has a 2.1-metre cable, which is braided for extra protection against scratches and damage.
The Razer Mamba Tournament Edition is practically plug and play as you plug it in for the first time and it installs the Synapse driver. This program is the driving force behind the mouse and all its features. Light changing and DPI is all toggled here, as well as assigning clicks to specific buttons. There are various different light modes, which add a bit of customization to the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition.
The scroll wheel is large, and when scrolling, has an old-school thumper speed scroll, this is great for FPS games that require a single scroll to zoom into a sniper scope, as it provided the precision you need. The wheel can also click left and right to scroll on an X-axis, which is great for web browsing, but not very useful when playing games.
The Razer Mamba Tournament Edition in general performed extremely well. We played Overwatch with it for hours on end, and thanks to its sensitivity switches, we could change the sensitivity on the go to suit the character we were playing. We could perform ults without using the keyboard and assigning them to the side buttons, with movement and general ergonomics being fantastic. With 5 different sensitivity levels, the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition managed to fit into any game we played, from World of Warcraft, all the way to some Elder Scrolls Online.
The Razer Mamba Tournament Edition is a jewel for FPS gamers out there. Sure it does not have the wireless feature, but this allows the mouse to come in much lighter and faster than others on the market. This is not a MOBA mouse or an RTS, rather anyone who loves some Call of Duty, Overwatch, or anything first-person, will love the versatility and sheer design of the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition.
