Now there are a number of Destiny fans out there that I know are super psyched about the second installation of the franchise and honestly, I can’t say that I’m not right there on board with them. I was one of the few that missed out on the first one’s hype but here we are again with another chance to jump off into orbit.
Razer reintroduces its line up of gaming peripherals (yet again!) with some smacking new threads of Destiny 2 just before its game release. The Razer Deathadder Elite, Razer Goliathus, Razer Ornata Chroma, and Razer Mano’War Tournament Edition are all getting the official license treatment with matching game colours to the already solid line up of gaming peripherals.
And before you PS4 gamers whine about the PC biasness of the line, rejoice in the idea that one of them actually works for consoles too.
The Razer Man o’War Tournament Edition is an analogue headset that has seen many iterations from various games and upgrades over the years but yet continues to be one of the best headsets I’ve ever owned to this day.
I have the Overwatch edition of the headset, which is no different from this Destiny 2 version, and seeing it in a more neutral grey colour gives it a much sleeker look than the bright orange I got.
The cushions are bulky yet comfortable for hours of gaming and having the mic hiddenly retractable in the left earpiece makes it excellent for casual usage as well.
The Razer Ornata Chroma is probably the pearl of this Destiny 2 oyster with a distinct feature compared to the regular line. The Ornata Chroma is known to be more of the casual keyboards under Razer because of its membrane keys – slightly lower keys with a less than gamer approved response.
For the Destiny 2 edition, the Ornata Chroma has a hybrid mecha-membrane set of keys that has the same soft feel of the membrane keys but a tactile function you could expect from mechanical keys.
Razer’s Chroma is still a spectacle to have but don’t expect Chroma integration for Destiny 2 yet as Bungie has yet to confirm or promised anything for the future.
Something more familiar to most gamers would be the Deathadder Chroma Elite, which is voted to be one of the best mechanical gaming mice available on the market.
The Deathadder boasts in providing the precision and speed you need for your gaming needs but honestly, its ergonomics make it the most accessible PC gaming accessory you could ever want.
Personally, I still use the Overwatch edition of the Deathadder Chroma today and having that natural arc of your hand feels great when you can just focus on flicking your wrist to bring death upon your enemies. (….online, of course.)
It’s safe to say that Razer has got you covered if you’re looking to upgrade your gaming gear or looking to jump on the wagon of Destiny 2 hype.
The Chroma feature is quite minimal like the other versions, with only the mouse wheel having the spectrum of colours but the Destiny logo does light up and can be customized through Razer’s Synapse software.
The least attractive but most decorative piece of this bundle would be the Razer Goliathus – basically a mousepad with a fancy Destiny 2 logo and decals on with the promises of providing a smooth and secure grip for all mouse sensitivities and gestures.
It’s safe to say that Razer has got you covered if you’re looking to upgrade your gaming gear or looking to jump on the wagon of Destiny 2 hype. All of these can be preordered now via Razer’s website and will be available on August 21 (US).
Destiny 2 currently has its open BETA available on consoles for those who preordered the game but will be available from 21 July onwards. PC players can expect the BETA to be available sometime in August.
Destiny 2 will be released on September 6 on consoles while PC will have to wait until October 24.
