The Wolverine V2 Pro for PS5 is another best gaming controller from Razer, which is a brand in its own right. The gamepad is a thrill to use and offers a huge amount of “Pro” functions, but it is too costly.
Since we explore Razer’s official entrance into the world of feature-packed PS5 controllers, the hunt for the greatest PS5 controller rages on. The verdict for Sony’s DualSense Edge and the Victrix Pro BFG has already been announced. But how does the Wolverine V2 Pro from Razer compare to its rivals? As, the most expensive PS5 controller currently available on the market, we’ve been using the controller extensively for over a week to tell you if it’s worth the sight price.
- Connectivity USB-C: Wireless (2.4GHz via dongle)
- Compatibility: PS5PC
- Battery life: 10-30 Hours
- Price: $249 (₹20,409)
- Features Six remappable buttons: Magnetic stick cap replacementHyperSpeed Wireless, Mecha-Tactile ButtonsTwo-point trigger stop
- Included in the box Razer Wolverine V2 Pro1x long concave stick cap1x, short convex stick capBraided USB-C to USB-A cable.
With the Wolverine V2 Pro, anyone who is used to the Razer Raiju series of controllers will feel right at home. The pad itself, a short, convex stick cap, and a longer, concave stick are all there when you first open the controller’s package. Moreover, you receive a necessary USB wireless dongle. When you consider that both the Victrix Pro BFG and DualSense Edge come with a carrying case, the lack of extra decorations in the box is pretty surprising.
On the other hand, the Razer Wolverine V2 Pro emits quality from the moment you touch it in your hands. Compared to an Xbox controller or even a regular DualSense controller, the controller itself feels much broader. But, even so, holding it feels very comfortable. The rubber material that covers each handle feels properly gripping, and the exterior’s white plastic has a very high-quality finish.
The Razer Wolverine V2 Pro has a number of features hidden inside, the first of which is totally aesthetic and reduces overall the controller’s battery life. With the RGB on, we were able to get about ten hours of battery life out of the pad.
We instantly looked for the Razer Controller app to see if we could disable the RGB, and with just a few mouse clicks, it was turned off. By turning off the RGB effects, we were able to extend the controller’s battery life greatly. Even though the effects are attractive, the battery impact is definitely not.
Is it budget-friendly?
The Razer Wolverine V2 Pro’s 2.4 GHz dongle provided us with a variety of connection problems. Most of these were incorrect inputs that remained for too long. Buttons and the D-Pad worked well in games like Street Fighter V and Guilty Gear Strive. You must use the app to tighten up the dead zones in first-person shooters like Fortnite, but once we got that figured out, it was great.
Yet there are just too many flaws with the Razer Wolverine V2 Pro for its ₹20,409asking price to suggest it over controllers like the Victrix Pro BFG, which are far more functional and come with a better-carrying case. Regarding the DualSense Edge, we believe Razer’s alternative is a much better-feeling controller. But, we are unable to recommend it due to the cost, overall design, and user experience.
