Gear up with the right items and dive into combat fearlessly with the Razer Naga Hex
MOBA and action-RPG gaming mouse. Instead of the award-winning 12-button thumb
grid MMO gamers have come to love with the Razer Naga, the Razer Naga Hex features
6 large thumb buttons optimized specifically for MOBA and action-RPG user interfaces.
Spells, abilities, and items from these games can be mapped directly onto the 6 thumb
buttons for extraordinary game control.
Validated with some of the top MOBA pro-gamers in the world, the Razer Naga Hex’s 6
thumb buttons are designed in a mechanical key infrastructure to provide faster key
actuation. This gives you the edge to attack quicker than enemies can react, necessary
to winning in high-pressure battle arenas.
Harass the enemy, farm end-bosses, and hack n’ slash for longer in comfort with the
ergonomic curved design of the Razer Naga Hex, as designed by some of the world’s
top ergonomic engineers. This gaming mouse has proven to minimize fatigue during
extended periods of play whether at home or at competitive tournaments.
The Razer Naga Hex is powered by the revolutionary Razer Synapse 2.0 service, a cloud
based software pioneered by Razer, designed to store your personal mouse settings
and preferences on remote servers so that they are accessible to you anytime,
From the makers of the world’s most powerful MMO gaming weaponry comes the
world’s most powerful MOBA/action-RPG gaming mouse. Get Imba!

The 6 [1-6] Mechanical Thumb Buttons on your Razer Naga Hex comes in two modes:
Basic [123] and Advanced [Num]. To change between the Basic [123] and Advanced
[Num] mode, simply use the switch at the bottom of your Razer Naga Hex.
Basic [123] Configuration
In Basic [123] mode, the 6 Mechanical Thumb Buttons works the same as a keyboard’s
numerical keys. These buttons allow you to replicate the action bar of most games onto
the thumb grid buttons.

Advanced [NUM] Configuration
In the Advanced [Num] mode, the 6 Mechanical Thumb Buttons work the same as a
keypad’s numerical keys. These buttons allow you to have quicker access to in-game
commands without having the need to reach for the keypad.
Note: Depending on your configuration, using the shift key or num lock key in-game may affect the functionality
of the thumb grid buttons (for example: numpad 4 may become left arrow).

thumb rest from the mouse.

The Performance Tab allows you to enhance the speed and precision of your mouse
pointer. Similar to the Customize Tab, the changes made here are automatically saved
to your current profile.
Listed below are the performance options and their descriptions.

Sensitivity pertains to how much effort is needed to move the mouse pointer in any
direction. The higher the sensitivity, the more responsive the mouse will be.
(Recommended setting: 1600 – 1800 DPI)

By default, the X axis (horizontal) and Y axis (vertical) use the same sensitivity values.
However, you may set different sensitivity values to each of the axes by selecting the
“Enable X-Y Sensitivity” option.
Configure Sensitivity Stages
A sensitivity stage is a preset sensitivity value. You can create up to 5 different
sensitivity stages which you can cycle through using the sensitivity stage up/down
Acceleration increases the cursor’s movement speed depending on how quickly you
move the mouse. The higher the value, the faster the mouse accelerates.
(Recommended settings: Windows 0, Mac 5)
Polling Rate
The higher the polling rate, the more often the computer receives information about
the status of your mouse, thus increasing the mouse pointer’s reaction time. You can
switch between 125Hz (8ms), 500Hz (2ms) and 1000Hz (1ms) by selecting your desired
polling rate on the dropdown menu. (Recommended setting: 500Hz – 1000Hz)

In order to achieve maximum safety while using your Razer Naga Hex, we suggest that
you adopt the following guidelines:
1. Avoid looking directly at the tracking beam of your mouse or pointing the beam
in anyone else’s eye. Note that the tracking beam is NOT visible to the naked
human eye and is set on an Always-On mode.
2. Should you have trouble operating the device properly and troubleshooting does
not work, unplug the device and contact the Razer hotline or go to for support. Do not attempt to service or fix the device
yourself at any time.
3. Do not take apart the device (doing so will void your warranty) and do not
attempt to operate it under abnormal current loads.
4. Keep the device away from liquid, humidity or moisture. Operate the device only
within the specific temperature range of 0°C (32°F) to 40°C (104°F). Should the
temperature exceed this range, unplug and switch off the device in order to let
the temperature stabilize to an optimal level.
Here are some tips to ensure that you are comfortable while using your device.
Research has shown that long periods of repetitive motion, improper positioning of
your computer peripherals, incorrect body position, and poor habits may be associated
with physical discomfort and injury to nerves, tendons, and muscles. Below are some
guidelines to avoid injury and ensure optimum comfort while using your Razer Naga
23 | razer™
1. Position your keyboard and monitor directly in front of you with your mouse
next to it. Place your elbows next to your side, not too far away and your mouse
within easy reach.
2. Adjust the height of your chair and table so that the keyboard and mouse are at
or below elbow height.
3. Keep your feet well supported, posture straight and your shoulders relaxed.
4. During gameplay, relax your wrist and keep it straight. If you do the same tasks
with your hands repeatedly, try not to bend, extend or twist your hands for long
5. Do not rest your wrists on hard surfaces for long periods. Use a wrist rest to
support your wrist while gaming.
6. Customize the buttons on your mouse to suit your style of gaming in order to
minimize repetitive or awkward motions while gaming.
7. Make sure that your mouse fits comfortably in your hands.
8. Do not sit in the same position all day. Get up, step away from your desk and do
exercises to stretch your arms, shoulders, neck and legs.
9. If you should experience any physical discomfort while using your mouse, such as
pain, numbness, or tingling in your hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, neck or
back, please consult a qualified medical doctor immediately.
The Razer Naga Hex requires minimum maintenance to keep it in optimum condition.
Once a month we recommend you unplug the device from the USB port and clean it
using a soft cloth or cotton swab with a bit of warm water to prevent dirt buildup. Do
not use soap or harsh cleaning agents.
To get the ultimate experience in movement and control, we highly recommend a
premium mousing surface from Razer. Some surfaces will cause undue wear on the
feet requiring constant care and eventual replacement.
Do note that the sensor of the Razer Naga Hex is ‘tuned’ or optimized especially for the
Razer mousing surfaces. This means that the sensor has been tested extensively to
confirm that the Razer Naga Hex reads and tracks best on Razer mousing surfaces.
