Tech specs –
The HyperX pulsefire Hatse is a simple and light esports mouse.
This mouse is designed for right-hand users as it has two programmable buttons on the left side of the mouse for right-handed users.
The mouse measures 1.44 x 2.59 x 1.44 (Height x width x diameter). The holes across the mouse get its weight down to as low as 58 grams which is one of the lightest mice I have ever used.
The ambidextrous design with the mini design makes it perfect for the claw style grip users and all it took for me to get used to this mouse was to switch the DPI and play some aimlabs.
Under the hood, this mouse packs in a Pixart 3335 sensor that can go up to 16,000 DPI and still be accurate on such high DPI as well. The switches used in this mouse are TTC Golden Micro switches which are known for their dustproof coating and are rated for up to 60 million clicks.
The HyperFlex USB cable is light, flexible and is made of a paracord design thereby there’s no feeling of drag or resistance while you flick or move the mouse.
Talking about flicks, the mouse is preinstalled with PTFE skates which are 100% low friction skates to make your flicks & movements more responsive. Additionally, there’s also an additional set of skates in case the default ones wear out.
If the mouse doesn’t feel grippy, you can also find a grip tape included inside the box for both the left & right switches and the sides of the mouse.

HyperX NGENUITY software –
The customization is limited as there’s not much you can do. With my usage, I used this software once to configure my settings and saved it to the mouse onboard memory. Then its just plug and play irrespective to the device you use.
The brains behind the mouse is the HyperX NGENUITY software. This lets you customize the mouse RGB, DPI, Acceleration, polling rate and remap your buttons according to your needs.
HyperX Pulsefire Hatse – Big W or Big L
In my opinion, this is one of the best mouse you can get for $50 or under ₹3,500 rupees in India. The only esports grade mice around the same range is the Glorious model D, otherwise there are not many options in the market.
There’s the Razer Viper that retails at ₹5,199 or $69. The only compromise you get is with the size as it is in the smaller compared to the other mice around the same range.
If you are looking to get a decent esports grade mouse on a budget, undoubtedly the Pulsefire Hatse is the best option.
