I have had the privilege to review another product from A4tech, it is another one of their gaming mice, the Bloody Multi-Core Gun3 Gaming Mouse V7. Upon opening the package I noticed I got a lot more than just a mouse. This mouse requires a software installation and you need it for customization. The software is called Bloody2 and you will use it to alter the different functions of your mouse. There is a lot of customization in this program but all of it is pretty user friendly.
There are three cores to this mouse; the first core is used for anything not FPS related. You have the great interactivity of the no lag design, but the “1, N, 3” buttons do nothing. Core 2, or Gun3 is used for FPS gaming with some slight additions for the avid FPS Gamer. Using any of the three buttons under the mouse wheel, “1” is used to fire single shots, “N” is used to fire dual shots (2 round burst), and “3” is used for three round bursts. While these two modes are very useful and dynamic, the real reason why you should get this mouse is for the Ultra Gun3 Core setting. This setting revolutionizes the way people play FPS games bot online and offline. The setting is, “1” is the standard setting as if nothing was changed. “N” will reduce your recoil and make your gun more precise, even while moving.
The response time between mouse and in game action is seamless. The no lag promise for A4tech’s holeless design is held up to the highest authority. It is time to talk specifications folks.

The tracking speed is quick and responsive and the response time is the fastest I have experienced. This is quite the piece of hardware. You cannot get this kind of quality and precision with a wired mouse. The visual design is also quite nice. After all, it is not only the inside that counts. This mouse lights up to be different colors depending on the core it is set to and the function is it using. The wire is wrapped in fiber and has a very nice length to work with.
My only gripes are rather small and insignificant. It involves the Software App, Bloody2. While the program itself is nice, if you accidentally over click the apply button the program will flip out and open more windows and it will seem like it will take forever to change your core. However, this is more user generated than anything.
The last bit I will talk about is my interaction with a variety of games, FPS and Non-FPS. Games I played with this mouse include, Counterstrike Global Offensive, Painkiller Hell and Damnation, Half Life 2, Orcs Must Die 2, A Valley Without Wind, League of Legends, and RaiderZ. Obviously the settings were magnificent on the FPS games. I was dominating quite a bit in Counterstrike and Painkiller. While the settings were not so marvelous in RaiderZ or League of Legends, the mouse design was more comfortable and the games felt like they ran a bit smoother with a high quality mouse.
Overall, the Bloody Multi-Core Gun3 Gaming Mouse V7 from A4tech is a stellar mouse that any FPS gamer should get to at least try out. I give this mouse a 10/10. It is versatile, responsive, and comfortable. A must have for any FPS Gamer.
