Razer Analog Optical Switches

The Razer Analog Optical Switch combines three components: analog input, adjustable actuation, and dual-step actuation. Analog input emulates an analog joystick input for smoother, more nuanced control and maneuverability. This removes the limitations of an 8-way WASD movement and allows for a true 360-degree of motion that benefits games optimized for controller support.

Players can also custom tune and adjust each key’s actuation point to suit any playstyle; ranging from a quick actuation of 1.5mm for fast-paced gaming to a full 3.6mm actuation for deep and deliberate keystrokes.

With dual-step actuation, one keystroke can activate two programmed functions set at two different actuation points. It essentially offers twice as much functionality per keystroke and is suitable for activating advanced combos in games.

Born from the acclaimed Razer Optical Switches, these Analog Optical Switches also track how much light goes through the switch and allows the keyboard to measure how far down each key is pressed. And unlike traditional mechanical switches, it requires fewer moving parts and no metallic contacts – only pure light, which allows it to easily last up to 100 million keystrokes.

As the latest addition to the Huntsman family, the Razer Huntsman V2 Analog includes new upgrades driven by community feedback from the Huntsman Elite. Doubleshot PBT keycaps have been added, as well as a standard bottom row that allows for further customization. Razer also offers additional personalization with the PBT Keycap Upgrade Sets sold separately in Classic Black, Quartz Pink, Mercury White, or Razer Green.

The Razer Huntsman V2 Analog also features underglow lighting from every side – including around its now bezel-less plush magnetic leatherette wrist rest. You can personalize a variety of lighting effects using the Razer Synapse 3 software. In-game Razer Chroma lighting effects are also integrated into popular game titles and can display tutorials, dynamic effects that react to gameplay and more.
