Wireless Mode

For optimal performance, please use the provided wireless adapter and keep it within 20cm of the mouse. These instructions apply both for Computers and Game Consoles (PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S).

  1. Connect the wireless receiver to the wireless adapter.
  2. Connect the USB-C connector to the wireless adapter.
  3. Connect the USB-A connector to the computer or game console.
  4. Flip the mouse to its underside.
  5. Move the power switch to the “On” position. A green colored indicator should be visible.


Wired Mode

Connect the mouse to a PC using the included USB-C to USB-A cable. These instructions apply both for Computers and Game Consoles (PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S).

  1. Connect the USB-C connector to the mouse USB-C port.
  2. Connect the USB-A connector to the computer or game console.


Grip Tape

Pulsefire Haste Wireless includes grip tape that can be used for added control and comfort if desired. The grip tape will cover the hex cutout holes on the left and right mouse buttons.

  1. Attach the button grip tape for the left [1] and right [2] mouse buttons, with the pointed end facing the forward direction of the mouse.
  2. Attach the side grip tape for the left [3] and right [4] sides of the mouse, following the shape of the mouse


Grip tape adhesion may weaken over time, as well as repetitive removal and re-use of the original grip tape applied.

Replacement Skates

Pulsefire Haste Wireless includes an extra set of PTFE skates in case the preinstalled skates are lost, damaged, or worn. To replace the skates, follow these instructions

  1. Remove the skate by gently wedging a flat tool under the skate. If needed, use a small flathead screwdriver or similar tool.
  2. Lift and pry the skate from the mouse
  3. Remove adhesive residue and debris from the mouse. A clean dry surface will provide optimal adhesion.
  4. Peel the replacement mouse skate from the backing paper and install it on the mouse. Use tweezers if needed.
  5. Remove the outer protective film.


It is recommended to fully charge your mouse before first use. Battery percentage can be found within NGENUITY.
The mouse is charged via USB-C, located at the top part of the mouse. While the cable is attached, the mouse will operate in wired mode.


DPI Presets

There is 4 default DPI presets 400 DPI (red), 800 DPI (blue), 1600 DPI (yellow), and 3200 DPI (green).
Up to 5 DPI presets can be stored on the mouse. Customizing and saving DPI settings can be done with NGENUITY.

HyperX NGENUITY Software

To customize lighting, DPI, polling rate, lift-off distance, macro settings, and check battery life, download the HyperX NGENUITY software at: hyperxgaming.com/ngenuity.

Factory Reset

If you are experiencing any issues with the mouse, you can perform a factory reset. Onboard memory will be cleared, and all settings will revert to the default DPI settings listed above and lighting effects (Rainbow Cycle).
Hold the DPI button + mouse wheel button down for 5 seconds. The mouse wheel will flash red momentarily and disappear once the reset has been completed.


What does this have to do with the Zowie EC2-A?

While the weight and shape are somewhat different, I don’t think these differences are too noticeable. That seems natural to me because I have medium to large hands. Nevertheless, there are several changes, including weight (Surge is 100g and EC2-A is 93g) and sensor type (EC2-A is 3310 and Pulsefire Surge is 3389). The Surge features clicks that are rapid but have resistance behind them, but the EC2-A’s clicks have a little bit more resistance on them. I’ve tried both, and they’re both excellent mice. HyperX is benefiting from something.

How do I off the RGB without using any software?

Not at all. While it stinks, there is onboard memory in this mouse, and the program is short, quick to download, and simple to erase. This implies that the settings will remain the same even if you download the program to any computer, disable RGB in the software, save the settings to the mouse, disconnect it from any location, and then plug it back in.

What are the return guidelines?

Sincerely, I’m unsure of the return policy. I haven’t had any problems with mine, and I’ve had it for about a year, so I haven’t needed to learn anything about returning it. For that response, it is best to directly contact Amazon or HyperX customer service.

Is it possible to adjust this mouse to 1000 DPI?

No. There is a fixed DPI. You can select from 400, 800, 1600, or 3200. The Razor Deathadder Elite is of comparable quality, but you can change the DPI anywhere from 0 to 16,000, so give that item a try if you enjoy 1000 DPI as I do.

What is the auto-set dpi when I connect the mouse, and will the program function on a Chromebook?

I fail to see why a Chromebook couldn’t use it. As it is not wireless, as long as it has an accessible USB port. About the auto-set DPI, there are three preset settings available with a little button on top of the mouse, ranging from, I guess, 300/1200 to another incredibly high one that I can’t recall. To modify DPI, RGB, etc., you may download the HyperX Ngenuity program.

The mouse has inbuilt memory, right?

It does have three pre-set DPI settings by default, but I’m not sure what you mean by “onboard memory.” The HyperX NGENUITY Windows program, which enables DPI adjustments and mouse wheel lighting and effects, is available for download. The program allows you to save all of this information to the mouse.

Does holding it with a ” claw ” grip seem comfortable?

As a result of my partially working “mouse hand,” which pushes me to experiment with a wide variety of mice, it does seem comfortable to me. The problem with this mouse is that its structure isn’t sturdy enough to withstand long-term, continuous use. I bought two of them, and one of them is now a mess of shattered plastic. I always return to a Logitech device that is probably no more than 13 years old.

If I use this for a laptop, is there a way to keep the dongle safe or a place to store it in the mouse?

Unluckily, there is nowhere to put the dongle. You may either put the dongle into one end of a cord that you plug into your laptop and use the mouse instead of the dongle. In either case, this mouse is fantastic and I highly suggest it.

This mouse drag can it click?

Although it can be done, this mouse is not ideal for drag clicks. To get the left-click button function for me, I have to wrangle the mouse and drag it over the top of the button. It’s a purposeful movement that is by no means pleasant. It’s not fantastic, but it can be done.

Does this mouse include onboard memory so that I can save my settings on my computer and then utilize the same settings on the mouse with my Xbox?

On the mouse itself, you can save up to three sensitivity profiles; I’m not sure about illumination. On one computer that is running the hyperx application and the other that is not, I utilize the mouse. While using it on a PC without the hyperx software open, I can still choose between my three DPI settings.
