When you need to rely on your mouse against the strongest enemies, DARKSTAR is more than up to the task. Its ultra-accurate CORSAIR MARKSMAN 26,000 DPI optical sensor tracks every movement and mouse flick with pinpoint precision, and is customizable in single DPI steps. DARKSTAR comes armed with spring-loaded CORSAIR QUICKSTRIKE buttons, enabling you to click in rapid-fire succession without a millisecond’s delay, all registered on instantaneous optical switches.

High-level players need to program their mouse to their exact specifications, and players of any skill level want to program DARKSTAR’s amazing RGB. That’s where powerful CORSAIR iCUE software comes in. With the newly redesigned iCUE 5.0, you can personalize your mouse’s RGB lighting effects, set DPI, assign macros, surface calibrate the sensor, and more. Save your settings to five onboard profiles, for convenient access no matter where you’re playing.

With so many programmable buttons in a delightfully ergonomic design overflowing with RGB, DARKSTAR enables you to expand what’s possible in your games.
