In a short tenure, Redragon quickly rose to fame among competitors, thanks to its excellent build quality. Redragon offers a wide array of peripherals, in Pakistan their Mouse and Keyboards are widely used and preferred by many Gamers because of their features delivered in such a compact prices.
Today we finally got our hands on the Redragon Perdition 2 for a review which in a nutshell, is a sleek looking MMO Gaming mouse with 18 programmable buttons (12 of which are placed on the left side), In the past, we reviewed the Patriot Viper V570 MMO and were impressed by it’s performance and particularly the RGB it boasts. In this review however, we will have a brief look at this mouse to determine whether it’s ideal for it’s price considering the performance it offers.

A Closer Look:
The mouse can easily be identified as a Redragon product due to the signature Black base highlighted with Red accents. The mouse measures 4.7 x 3 x 1.5 inches and weight about 149g.
The LEDs of the mouse are bright enough to qualify as decent. Moving on, let’s talk respective RGB comparisons!. Comparing Perdition 2 with Viper V570 , V570 annihilates it without question. Redragon Perdition 2 comes with a default red light breathing effect which may be changed via the Perdition Software but in my opinion the original red breathing effect still comes out at the top.
Testing and Performance:
The plastic matte finish on the body feels outright comfortable and it also prevents any unwanted fingerprints which is fairly decent. The mouse fits well in bigger hands and offers a smooth Gaming experience in longer sessions especially for people with sweaty palms and the TEFLON feet pads ensure a smooth tracking experience.
The Perdition lineup from Redragon is mainly advertised as a MMO Gaming mouse and is intended to be used by Dota and League of Legends players etc. Some people may find the side programmable buttons a little off but in my opinion they don’t compromise the comfort at all.
Redragon M901-1 features a whooping 24000 DPI Avago optical laser gaming sensor with advanced tracking and high-speed motion detection. The mouse offers a standard polling rate of 1000Hz and a 30g acceleration with a standard gold plated USB connector.
PERDITION 2 comes with 5 fully customize-able onboard profiles in which you can program your mouse buttons, change your DPI, set new color schemes and do much more including setting different settings for different profiles . The mouse weighs roughly 149g but you can increase the weight by adding the included 8 x 2.4g weights. With all weights installed the mouse weights about 168g.
On the first page you are greeted with a General settings for the mouse, from here you can configure you 18 programmable buttons and tweak some main features like Acceleration and Polling Rate etc.
At the DPI tab you can customize the DPI settings according to your needs. Pretty hassle free in my opinion.
Finally at the Light page you can customize the RGB lightning effects of the mouse.
As said earlier, Redragon is well known for producing some of the best mouses available in the market with a competitive and affordable price tag for Gamers with a tight budget. The mouse is great for relatively longer gaming sessions and the sensor is fairly accurate as well. Redragon Perdition 2 is a decent looking mouse, the build quality and amount of features such as 18 programmable keys and adjustable weight in just $30 (4,200PKR) is quite rare to find. Well if you are new to a MMO mice it might take some time to get comfortable with the side buttons.
