If you’re a ‘power user’ and want to personalize everything on your mouse you can do that too. In Expert Mode, users can drill down on any button they choose and record (or manually create) complex macros or combinations that will leave your competition’s head spinning!
Utilize any combination of mouse, keyboard and joystick/gamepad outputs, add wait timers or start and stop loops to give yourself the edge.
You can even set up button combinations for additional outputs. For example, set the bottom thumb button to your ‘melee attack’ and the top thumb button to ‘grenade’ – but press them together to trigger a useful combo, such as ‘Crouch-Jump’.
If you want to make tweaks to a profile, simply use the game-specific ‘action libraries’, which allows you to select what each button does from a dropdown list that matches the game you’re playing. No more switching between the game menu and your desktop to set up the software – customization made easy!
When you launch a game, TRACER will switch to the correct profile, automatically and instantly. No more forgetting to activate the correct profile, no more minimizing mid-game to access the software, and no need to create a single basic profile that sort of works (but not very well…) for every game you own.
Adding to the impressive lineup of 13 buttons, TRACER’s two left mouse buttons have built-in pressure sensors. ‘Deep click’ gives you more buttons and more flexibility – click normally for one action, or harder for another action. Each ‘Deep Click’ button can have up to 3 actions assigned to it!
Fortnite – Shoot and then deep click to instantly build a wall
World of Warcraft – Trigger a skill and then deep click to activate it instantly.
Overwatch – Roadhog’s Shrapnel Ball, Chain hook, and melee attack
Some other useful examples include;
- Crouch / prone – Press normally to crouch, press hard to instantly go prone
- Sniper button – press one button reduce your sensitivity, then press harder to fire
- Rapid reload / weapon switch – use left click to fire, then press hard to instantly begin reloading, or to switch to your secondary weapon
- Or, use deep click to set up your own commonly used combo
I've been using this mouse as both a gaming and productivity mouse. The multiple profiles are a lifesaver, the button layout falls naturally into hand, and it's extremely comfortable to use. Even though I have it set on a high DPI, it's still easy to make precision movements with minimal physical movement. I have nerve damage in my right hand, so the audible click and short throw of the buttons doesn't leave me questioning whether or not I've pushed the button. Overall, 10/10, and I've been recommending it to all of my friends/family who are just as picky as I am when it comes to mice.
I used the Swiftpoint Z's pressure sensitive buttons a lot. The Tracer only has two while the Z had five. It's not a replacement for the Z but it's better than many of the other gaming mice on the market. Lots of buttons that are easy to reach and click so if you were not able to get a Z previously, This may be the next best thing.
My son is a big time gamer. He absolutely loves this mouse. There are multiple buttons that make playing games a lot more efficient. The light on the mouse glows different colors. It is easy to move the mouse and it also has a really long cord. I would definitely recommend this gaming mouse. It is a great value for the money.
I think this is a contender for most well rounded ergonomic gaming mouse available. It doesn't look like a weird palms to the side mouse with awkward clicking and buttons. This looks and feels like a large surface gaming mouse with well thought out button placement, angles, and usage.
Side buttons are terrible - it creates a ton of fatigue on the thumbs, even if you are used to it. Pressing down and with the use of gravity is far easier on the hands and joints. This is especially true if you plan to use a side button on a hold/push control like say hold to talk/mute in discord. The button design here is perfect.
Great materials, nice design, actually really stylish. Ergonomic mouse designs tend to be doodoo, they look like terrible tennis shoes. The Tracer is mean, cool, and functional.
I love this mouse. It has so many buttons that it makes gaming easy. I can map all the necessary actions to it with buttons to spare. I've been a console gamer my whole life, so switching to pc was a bit odd. With this mouse and being able to assign it all the necessary actions, it makes the transition so much easier. The entire mouse is comfortable all around, with rubber grips placed on the left and right of it. It doesn't slip and i can use it without any issues.
The software works wonders. It is easy to navigate from the very beginning. I experienced no bugs and found it to be really easy switching it from gaming to the usual desktop schematics. Among the various buttons that you can assign, you can also duplicate gaming profiles, give them unique names, and even give them profile pictures.
Overall, I'm truly satisfied with the mouse. It feels great. moves around smoothly with every button functioning as it should. I would definitely recommend this to my friends.
