Razer has introduced a new mouse for MMOs with the Razer Naga V2 Pro. MeinMMO has tested the gaming mouse for you and reveals who the mouse could be worthwhile for.
With the Naga series, Razer now has a few mice in its portfolio that are aimed at MMO players and people who want to remain flexible with their games. With the Naga V2 Pro, a new version of the Naga Pro has now been presented. Razer writes itself: “The MMO king is back.”
I was able to test the Razer Naga Pro for MeinMMO in 2020 and explain in the test whether the improved new edition is worth it. Because while the mouse still looks identical from the outside, a lot has changed on the inside.

Scope of delivery, design and construction
What does the scope of delivery look like? The Razer Naga V2 Pro comes with three interchangeable siteplates, a USB receiver for the wireless connection, a USB extension cable for the adapter and a USB charging cable for the mouse.
This allows you to use the mouse both wirelessly and wired on your computer. There is also an extensive English manual and the obligatory stickers from Razer.
How is the mouse constructed? The model relies on a black design:
- On the top of the mouse are the main buttons and between them the four-way scroll wheel. There are two small switches on the top that you can use to adjust the DPI or the mouse wheel.
- On the left side of the mouse you can choose between three side parts: an attachment with 12 buttons, a module with 6 buttons and a third one with 2 buttons. These can be attached to the mouse with magnets.
- The model relies on a rough surface and does not offer any rubberized side surfaces. There is no additional grip tape either.
When the mouse is connected to the computer, the Razer snake icon and certain mouse buttons light up. For example, the 12-button module is completely illuminated.
Overall, the Razer Naga V2 Pro looks bulky and almost a bit clumsy. This is especially noticeable in comparison to other mice.
The Razer Naga V2 Pro feels stable and valuable. This is also due to the high weight of 134 grams. However, the mouse is significantly heavier than mice from the competition: Logitech, Roccat and SteelSeries now tend to use mice that weigh less than 100 grams.
During the shaking test, you only hear the mouse wheel and the mouse doesn’t creak when you squeeze it. However, what slightly bothers me is the fact that you can see fingerprints or slightly damp fingers directly on the surface of the mouse.
For the exchangeable side modules, Razer uses magnets that are encased in plastic. In addition, a small plastic nose ensures that the part sits securely on the mouse. In the long term, this combination of plastic and magnets could be a weak point in the processing if you want to change the modules regularly.
As usual for Razer products, the Razer Naga V2 Pro also relies on “Razer Synapse.” The software is very extensive and a number of components can be installed later. For my personal taste, the software is cluttered and offers too many features if I just want to configure my mouse.
Incidentally, the software can also be used as a guest, you do not have to register for the Naga V2 Pro.
On the next page you will find my assessment of the weight, ergonomics and functions of the mouse. In the final conclusion, I also explain to you for whom the mouse is worthwhile and what could (still) speak against a purchase.
