Unboxing & Review: Razer Viper Mini

Our own Greg Burke gets a hands-on look with Razer’s diminutive new mouse, dubbed the Razer Viper Mini.

When it comes to gaming peripherals, most of the attention on new products is paid to equipment designed for use with desktop PCs. A giant in this particular segment of the market, Razer is no stranger to the gaming mouse world and has a wide array of options for the serious gamer. When it comes to devices that need to be portable, such as a gaming mouse intended for use with laptops or travel, the options on the ground are much thinner. Razer hopes to fill that need with its new Viper Mini.

Shacknews editor Greg Burke got a chance to sample the mouse and recorded the unboxing and his initial impressions in the video embedded above. The Razer Viper Mini is around 4mm shorter and 8 grams lighter than its full-size counterpart. It comes with Razer’s new optical switch that promises faster response and the elimination of misclicks. The Viper Mini also has a assortment of addressable RGB lights built into its chassis that are customizable using Razer’s Synapse software and can be set to synchronize with other devices in the Razer ecosystem.

A fancy braided cable also comes standard on the Razer Viper Mini, as well as onboard profiles and six fully-customizable buttons. Like its bigger brothers, the Viper Mini is available in a matte black finish. It retails for $39.99 and can be purchased directly from Razer.

Where to farm Savathun’s Marionettes – Destiny 2

Learn where to find a bunch of Savathun’s Marionettes for the Growth quest in Destiny 2.

Killing Savathun’s Marionettes is a critical part in the Growth quest in Destiny 2. Players will likely end up searching high and low for Marionettes to kill, and thankfully there is a pretty consistent farming route on Titan.

Savathun’s Marionette farming

As part of the new Growth quest that unlocks the Ruinous Effigy, players need to kill Savathun’s Marionettes. The exact quest step is Pendulum, requiring 15 of Savathun’s Marionettes to be defeated. This step also has players finding a couple dozen Calcified Light fragments. But to find the Marionettes, begin your search on Titan.

The Rig seems to have a steady supply of Savathun’s Marionettes for you to defeat.

Ideally, you will want to start on The Rig on Titan. Start circling the building where the Witches’ Ritual public event takes place. Work your way around the entire building. There are several areas around it where Savathun’s Marionettes can spawn. Usually, you will need to defeat a sort of miniboss in order to have a Marionette appear.

There is one set of Knight bosses that only lose their immunity shield when close to one another and another is a large Ogre. There could be more minibosses, so prepare for a fight.

The Marionettes are often defended by other, larger, Taken bosses.

When the Marionette of Savathun is defeated, it will drop a chest that you can loot. This will help you get some XP as well as some blue gear for weapon parts.

All you need to do is continue circling the building until you have all 15 Savathun’s Marionette defeats. It could take about an hour, so throw on something to watch or listen to – might we suggest some of our videos on the Shacknews or GamerHubTV YouTube channel? Definitely check out the Shacknews Dump page for a weekly rundown of the week’s gaming events.

Farming the 15 Savathun’s Marionette kills in Destiny 2 will take a bit of time. However, with the right farming route, you should be able to knock it out in under an hour. Check out the Shacknews Destiny 2 guide for even more farming tips.

Facebook continues to be a garbage company. “They showed up to the meeting expecting an A for attendance,” said Color Of Change Executive Director Rashad Robinson. “All Mark needs to do, all Facebook needs to do, is once and for all say ‘White supremacy, racism, anti-semitism, anti-Muslim hate, xenophobia — once and for all, it has to stop, and that stops now,’” added Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt.

Introducing Engadget’s back-to-school buying guide

Avatar

Published

Happy summer, friends! Yes, you read that headline right — Engadget is already thinking about the approaching semester. To get ahead of the game, we’re thrilled to debut our 2020 back-to-school buying guide. Like the rest of 2020 so far, the start of the fall semester is shaping up to be unprecedented — and not for the greatest reasons. Many will not be returning to campus at the end of August or right after Labor Day, but classes will begin and students will be expected to get into the academic mindset nonetheless. That’s challenging under normal circumstances, but it’ll be even more difficult this year.

We want to help college and university students everywhere by making sure they’re fully equipped to start the academic year off right — and that includes having the information they need to make smart buying decisions. The product recommendations in this year’s guide cover tangible items like laptops and streaming devices as well as digital tools like personal budgeting software and organization apps.

While we picked out most recommendations by thinking about which are best for school work and studying, we also included gadgets that can help you unwind when you need a break from classes. We’ve also made a point to include free and affordable options, and we put together a list of the best discounts available to people with .edu email addresses (think: deals from retailers like Amazon, Apple, Samsung and Microsoft, among others). We hope our recommendations and buying advice can lift some of the metaphorical weight off your shoulders as you prepare to go back to school — especially if an appearance on campus isn’t in the cards just yet.

All products recommended by Engadget are selected by our editorial team, independent of our parent company. Some of our stories include affiliate links. If you buy something through one of these links, we may earn an affiliate commission.
