For people who dislike the sniper button on the G502

Recommended Posts

I get why you did this, but I would have simply covered the button in electrical tape and forgotten it...


...is there a question here? 🤔

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Yeah, I could probably have done that. But I have no problems with it anymore now, so I'm happy :)

Hmm I only know one person that had this issue and he fixed it by changing his grip up a bit.

Apologies for my ignorance, but what does that button do?

It does whatever you want, by default sniper. The other main use is g-shift.

I didn't have this issue in the beginning, but I started developing it down the road. Before I gripped the mouse in a way where my hand was really sloping towards the right, and I could even still see the whole G logo when I was holding it. Now I have developed a grip where I hold it in a bit more neutral wrist position, and I prefer this, because I found the mouse to be a bit imbalanced before and it was kinda tipping towards the right when I dragged it around and picked it up etc.

I just hold it how I do my G602 and G700/G700s but I do have a slight claw with the G502 but it doesn't feel uncomfortable or unnatural.

Oh and I use that button for all kinds of things like grenade in cs go and gshift on the desktop to have few more macros like network and new text file.

Ah, I see. If I curl my thumb, it's no problem. But I like to have all my fingers extended in a palm grip. I also sometimes fingertip it when I casually use it for web browsing etc.

I see. I find the other buttons to be more than enough for me. I use the tilt on the wheel for quick buy item in Dota and open shop etc. for example.

I understand as that how I normally am but for some reason this mouse induces a slight claw into my grip, it seems to be a bit of a hybrid kinda like the G602 is fingertip grip wise.

Yeah, I feel that way too. But I find it works perfectly for my palm grip with all fingers extended, aswell as claw and fingertip.

I really hate the tilt wheel for gaming as I always bump it. I always disable those buttons for my gaming profile. I do have them in the gshift layer on my default profile for undo redo.

Ah, I have no problem with the tilt actually. I really like it :)

I use middle click as reload in most games which is likely why.

I see, I don't play FPS games that often though. And I don't really use the middle click

You must palm the hell out of your mouse to even notice the button is there. I half claw, half palm, and my thumb doesn't come close to touching that button. I can easily use it when I need it, but it's not in the way of anything.

Thats one way to do it! My really long fingers mean I'd finger tip grip this mouse. So I Couldn't even touch it if I wanted to.  

 

I love ghetto mods :D  Some gold in this thread. http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=896218&page=130

Sometimes, you gotta go ghetto ;)

 

I sometimes fingertip, but I have always palm gripped mice, so that's why I prefer and do 90% of the time.

I see, I didn't have any problems with in the begging. But I started touching it all the time for the past two weeks now, I don't know why. I prefer having my fingers completely extended, that's probably why I touch it.

Does the sniper button really get in the way? Planning on getting this.

Depends on your grip and hand size. You won't have problems if you claw/slightly claw or fingertip.

Makes sense to me. If you've found the perfect mouse except for 1 thing, better to remove the 1 thing than a different mouse with more issues. I'd have thought you could open it up and remove it from the inside, though?

 

... seriously? You could have just set it to do nothing in the software...

 

..seriously? You could have just read the thread, or even just the first page...

Funny thing is, if you had a screwdriver you could probably of taken the button out without damaging it.
