PRODUCT FEATURES AND SPECIFICATIONS
Like a lot of new mice on the market, the Trooper utilizes laser technology instead of optical. Laser technology is much more sensitive and accurate, and needless to say that is a big advantage for a gamer. This mouse also features a patented rapid fire switch that allows you to select up to 4 shots per click. It sounds great on paper, but the true test will be to try it out during a game.
The Trooper comes in a black and red box with a large cutout in the front. This gives the customer a good look at the mouse as well as to get an idea of what it's like to hold in the hand. The back of the box showcases all the features and specs.
For around $40 US you get the mouse, driver CD, instruction manual, and extra pads to reduce friction. The price is right in line with other popular gaming mice, and is even a bit cheaper when compared to some.
PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
It's evident that Wolfking made a lot of effort in the ergonomics department there is a lip protruding out that provides a comfortable area to rest your thumb, and the opposite side has a similar design. This shape is a bit wider than a standard mouse and has a soft, rubberized material coating it.
The scroll wheel illuminates red, blue, or purple depending on what the rate of fire is set at. Pressing the F (Fire) button once will turn the wheel red and indicate two shots per click, pressing twice will turn the wheel blue and indicate three shots per click, and pressing it once more will turn it purple and indicate four shots per click. Below the fire button is an S (Speed) button that adjusts DPI.
