PC gamers doubtlessly have the drop on their console brethren when it comes to accurately squeezing off headshots thanks to the enhanced precision of a mouse over a gamepad- and Mad Catz have upped their ante with their Modern Warfare 2 branded Sniper mouse. Opinions are divided about whether the bells and whistles actually... but no-one can deny that Amazon are currently offering an excellent deal for the peripheral. They're retailing at £9.47, which will save you a whopping £15.38 compared to ShopTo.
The MW2 Sniper Mouse is a nifty piece of kit with a number of built-in gimmicks and features. A selectable DPI switch allows gamers to alter the sensitivity on-the-fly in order to deliver the perfect headshot or quickly rotate to face an opponent, and removable weights let us tailor the heft in order to suit our particular needs. The braided cable offers 'latency-free' movement and the bundled software allow various commands to be mapped to the buttons using macros. It certainly won't turn a good gamer into a great gamer... and some of these features seem a little gimmicky... but hey, it's a dedicated gaming mouse with an official license for less than a tenner. This has to be worth a look.
As I said in the introduction, the jury's out on whether this peripheral actually delivers an improved gaming experience... but if you want one, this is a fantastic deal that's well worth taking advantage of.
