Optical Gaming Keyboard – Razer Huntsman V2


If all-out advantage is more your speed, arm yourself with responsiveness that’s second to none. Meet the Razer Huntsman V2—an optical gaming keyboard with near-zero input latency and fully geared out with other high-end features to make it the complete package.

With lightning-fast actuation speeds backed by a 100-million keystroke lifespan, Razer™ Optical Switches are superior to traditional mechanical designs—a crucial edge essential for esports.

As optical switches actuate via light, they do not suffer from the bouncing found in traditional mechanical switches, ensuring the signal is sent the instant the key is actuated.

When we created the Razer Huntsman, we didn’t just decide to create another line of great gaming keyboards. We had a goal to break a whole new frontier of gaming performance. And with the Razer Huntsman, you’ll experience exactly what we wanted – a keyboard that elevates your gaming level in no time.

Opto-mechanical switches are equipped with an optical light sensor. The moment you press a key, you activate the signal receiver and the switch command is instantaneous. Never before has the response been so fast. Reprogram buttons, assign macros and automatically save all your profile settings to the cloud. If you don’t have Internet access, just save up to 5 profiles to the hybrid built-in memory. Innovating to enhance the gaming experience is what we are constantly striving for. This is what drove us to create the first mechanical gaming keyboard and then design our own Razer™ Mechanical Switches to meet the needs of gamers. And with the new Razer Opto-Mechanical™ switch, we’re once again redefining speed standards.

Quick action
Thanks to the high response rate, you will be able to increase your APM (Action per minute) during fast-paced games.
Soft and clicky
Get the familiar click you enjoy along with the super light and balanced keystroke. Truly the best combination.
Key stabilizer
The key stabilizer at the top of the switch ensures that the movement remains smooth and consistent, no matter which part of the key is pressed.
More durable
Thanks to the optical drive, which provides less physical contact, you get durability up to 100 million clicks, which is twice the capabilities of standard mechanisms.
10 keys simultaneously
It’s easy not to miss one key. Past ten is also not a problem. The built-in anti-ghosting system allows you to issue up to ten commands at the same time – and all of them will be executed exactly.
Game mode
Make sure you never hit the wrong key.
On-the-fly macro recording
Customize and combine macros for maximum in-game control.
Aluminum alloy
The aluminum alloy has increased strength with a tactilely smooth, pleasant touch.

Huntsman V2 is Razer’s fastest keyboard yet!

Full size or TKL version, virtually no latency, quiet click, crisp tactile feel and good responsiveness. All these are the main features of the Huntsman V2 – the long-awaited new product from Razer!

Recently, the aforementioned company Razer held its next presentation, which presented a new keyboard – Huntsman V2. The event was traditionally held in Irvine, California, where a well-known manufacturer of peripherals for gamers often shows their new products.

The very first highlight of the Razer Huntsman V2 is Razer’s second-generation optical switches, which are paired with Razer 8K HyperPolling technology. Thanks to this, they react with lightning speed to each press, and work much faster than conventional switches in other devices. The keyboard also uses durable PBT keycaps made using the double molding method – they can withstand heavy loads every day and will retain their original appearance for many, many months.

The Huntsman line of gaming keyboards began to gain popularity in 2018 immediately after the introduction, and at some point it became the most successful in the US (in terms of sales). At least, this is what Razer experts say, based on research by independent analysts. The first Huntsman literally set the standard for modern keyboards with high-speed data transfer technology. And the new Huntsman V2 retained all the advantages of its predecessor and received several additional features.

“We first mass-produced a keyboard with optical switches with the Huntsman in 2018 and it has been a huge success since then. With literally hundreds of thousands of gamers around the world loving the keyboard, it became clear that we needed to move on while retaining all the main advantages of the first model,” says Chris Mitchell, Head of Sales and Marketing, Razer’s Peripherals Business Department. “And the new Huntsman V2 is smoother, has more durability and more durable components, registers each press quickly and is quieter than the previous version. Just as cool as its predecessor and even better!” he continues.

Razer 2nd Generation Switches

nd Generation Linear Optical Switches that have been modified according to feedback from gamers in the gaming community. They use silicone noise isolation, which noticeably reduces the volume of the click during the pressing of the button. Plus, the switches are also extra lubricated, as are the stabilizers. This also reduces noise levels and allows the switches to operate more smoothly.

Linear optical switches use a beam of infrared light to actuate, so that the signal delay when pressed is completely eliminated. Conventional mechanical switches do not have these advantages and require to take into account the bounce during keystroke, which slows down the transfer of information to the system. Of course, Razer’s optics don’t have that problem. Razer 2nd Generation Linear Optical Switches work together with Razer HyperPolling technology to increase the polling rate by 8x to 8kHz! And due to this, each key can respond to lightning at lightning speed, with almost zero delay, and you will act even faster in any game!

Collaboration with the community and esports
Often, Razer releases devices that are made based on the recommendations of esports players, as well as reviews in the gaming community. And Huntsman V2 is just one of them. Having carefully studied the preferences of ordinary gamers and also not disregarding the recommendations of professional e-sports players, Razer engineers have added one more important detail to the list of device advantages. These are special keycaps. They are made of durable PBT plastic using a double molding method, and each keycap has a textured coating on the surface, with which the buttons are pressed even more pleasantly both during the game and while typing.

Other noise absorbing components are also used in the keyboard to reduce noise. This is a durable aluminum plate that is virtually inflexible and allows the device to withstand heavy loads during a work day or intense gaming marathon. Plus, the device is equipped with an ergonomic insert for the wrists – with it you will be even more comfortable using the keyboard and your hands will not get tired after a couple of hours.

The Razer Huntsman V2 has it all, even for those who love to play to music! There are four multimedia buttons on the far right corner of the keyboard that can be programmed to your liking. And to customize the device, you can use the Razer Synapse 3 service, with which you can control the Razer Chroma RGB lighting with 7 lighting effects and 16,800,000 different colors. The device also has built-in memory for storing all user settings, including macros and backlight profiles. In addition, configurations can be stored in the cloud, so you can choose the best solution for yourself.

Razer Huntsman V2 in TKL format

the keyboard will take up less space on the desktop and it is more convenient to carry it in a backpack or bag. Plus, the Huntsman V2 TKL is thinner but no less fast than the full size model. It also features Razer Linear Optical Switches Gen-2 and is paired with Razer HyperPolling technology for up to 8x the polling rate, up to 8kHz. Like the standard Huntsman V2, the TKL version features durable double-molded PBT keycaps.

A detachable cable with a USB-C connector is installed here to connect the device. The keyboard is also configured using the Razer Synapse 3 service, which allows you to control the backlight and save all configurations in the built-in memory or in the cloud storage.
