Bloody Ultra Core 3 Mouse Review

The Bloody Ultra Core3 Gaming Mouse is a USB-wired device that is aimed specifically at FPS gamers, but can be used by any sort of PC gamer. The mouse offers a lightweight design, a two-layer lens, 200 to 3,200 DPI resolution, 368 megapixels/second and offers a tracking speed of 75-inches per second. The Core3 offers a braided cord and red lighting for the mouse-wheel and logo areas. The Bloody Ultra Core3 Gaming Mouse sells for $39.99 USD and proves to be a surprisingly accurate and responsive mouse for PC gaming.

Bloody Ultra Core3 Specs

The Bloody Ultra Core3 gaming mouse features A4TECH’s PinPoint Optic technology, which allows users to adjust the shooting rate and recoil-suppression without additional software, to rectify trajectory and increase shooting accuracy. Users can also utilize the armory to maintain and adjust game play options based on individual preferences. Clearly aimed at FPS gamers, the mouse offers some interesting features, plus some customization, to react just the way you want it to in critical situations. The resolution is configurable between 200 to 3,200 DPI and offers image processing of 368 megapixels per second. The key response time is listed at 1ms and there is 160k of on-board memory. The mouse will work with Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 and the cable is approximately 6-feet long and the unit itself weighs in at just 0.34 pounds.

Performance for Action RPG Games

Having precise controls for an Action RPG can be rather useful when it comes to the typical clunky combat interfaces we’re given. As tested extensively with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the Bloody Ultra Core3 Gaming Mouse performed wonderfully. The mouse was surprisingly accurate, provided wonderful tactile response from the buttons and an overall comfortable feel. The mouse is designed to handle a little bit of punishment despite its lightweight body and overall was a great mouse to use for various RPG games.

Performance for RTS Games

Real Time Strategy (RTS) games are one of the two genres (with FPS games being the other) where your mouse can dramatically increase or decrease your efficiency and performance during a game. As tested while playing StarCraft II, the Bloody Ultra Core3 performed admirably. The main two mouse buttons have such an impressive response; it’s very rare to make a click-error during gameplay after spending a few hours breaking it in. The mouse-wheel worked fine, although that’s typically of little concern in RTS play. General scrolling was extremely smooth and overall proved to be a surprisingly good mouse to play RTS games with.

Performance for MMO Games

With Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games (MMORPG) there’s the gold standard – World of WarCraft. Previously reviewed was the Logitech Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse, which received high marks for being comfortable, responsive and sporting more buttons than you could possibly want. This is where the Bloody Ultra Core3 falters as it fails to keep up with the demands of MMO play due to the limitations of the buttons available. It might be a little “apples to oranges” comparison, but frankly MMORPGers would be disappointed with the mouse for its hardware limitations, not for the overall performance.

Performance for FPS Games

First-Person Shooters are really where the Bloody Ultra Core3 shines best. The precision of the mouse, coupled with responsiveness of the mouse buttons and the overall handling of the unit is extremely impressive. The manufacturer claims that the mouse offers some of the highest rates possible with software to prove it. After playing some TF2 and Counter-Strike: GO, it’s clear that this mouse easily outperforms the price-point it’s sold at. If you are looking for a decently priced mouse and play a lot of FPS games, this is definitely one to consider.

Cost Value

The Blood Ultra Core3 retails for just $39.99 online at stores such as Amazon. Given the overall performance of the mouse, it’s actually quite a steal. Given that other mice, such as the Logitech G600, retail for literally double the price, this mouse provides a tremendous bang-for-your-buck value. If gamers are looking for a good bargain and don’t want to give up a lot of quality, this is the first gaming mouse they should look at.

Conclusion

Overall, the Bloody Ultra Core3 Gaming Mouse was a surprising joy to use for Action RPG, RTS and FPS games. It’s best used by enthusiast FPS gamers looking to get the most bang for their buck and MMORPG players would probably be best to stay away. It gave the Logitech M600 an absolute run for it’s money and to be completely honest, was more enjoyable to use for Action RPG and RTS games which came as a bit of a surprise. Given that the price point is extremely affordable, this mouse comes recommended for gamers that play between a lot of different genres and want a good value for their gaming dollar.
