Our commitment to consistently delivering game-changing innovations to elevate your gaming experience is one of the top priorities at Razer. Today, I’m excited to share an update specifically for the Razer Huntsman V2 Analog and Razer Huntsman Mini Analog via Razer Synapse – Rapid Trigger Mode!
Speed, responsiveness, and precision are at the heart of a pro-gaming experience, and we’ve noticed esports players adopting keyboards with Rapid Trigger functionality. With Rapid Trigger Mode, we’re revolutionizing the way gamers play with their keyboards. This mode allows you to repeatedly actuate and reset a key with minimal effort. It will give you the competitive advantage of response, especially useful for genres like first-person shooters and rhythm games. In intense gaming scenarios, every millisecond matters. Imagine being able to switch to a standing position mid-movement to get that accurate shot or quickly strafe away to safety faster than your opponents with just the most minute finger movement.
So how does Rapid Trigger work, exactly?
Traditionally, a switch needs to travel past a fixed actuation point for a keystroke to be registered. For the next keystroke to be made, the switch needs to first reset by travelling back up past its fixed reset point.
With Rapid Trigger Mode, this reset point is no longer fixed. Instead, the switch resets the instant it travels upwards once a keystroke is registered. This means that you can perform repeated keystrokes far more rapidly, as pressing the same key requires less key travel. In addition, Rapid Trigger Mode can be customized to be as responsive as you want, down to an ultra-fine sensitivity of 0.1 mm.
For Rapid Trigger Mode to work, it requires the keyboard to know how far each key is pressed. Hence, the heart of this innovation is our Razer™ Analog Optical Switches. These switches are able to do so using optical technology, ensuring utmost precision, and are unaffected by temperature or magnetic interference.
The best part? Rapid Trigger Mode comes free-of-charge – simply update Razer Synapse to the latest version and you are good to go.
