When it comes to battlefield video games, there are some elements that can be a bit harder to control with a conventional mouse and keyboard. In these types of games, there are tanks, helicopters, and other vehicles to control and shoot from. While you can meddle your way through with regular gear, it’s nice to have a piece of dedicated gaming equipment when playing.
The Roccat Tyon is a brand new mouse coming to the market that is specifically meant for this genre of game. This has a single-axis thumb paddle that will let you “tilt left and right, pitch up and down, increase and decrease throttle and much more, all while maintaining perfect mouse control”. There is Easy-Shift[+] functionality that will allow you a secondary function to each button when the Easy-Shift button is pressed down.
There’s a Dorsal-Fin Switch, which is a two-way button located on the top middle of the mouse. Additionally, there are four buttons located on the outer edge of the left and right clicks, which will let you move more of the keyboard functions onto the mouse. Since they wanted to give gamers a chance to have even more customization than just button-mapping, you can change the color of your scroll wheel and mouse rim independently to one of 16.8 million colors. This will be on the market soon for around $137.
