Razer Wolverine T.E. vs. Wolverine Ultimate vs. Wolverine V2

Razer recently released a new Xbox controller with the Wolverine V2. So, how does this game pad compare to the older Wolverine Tournament Edition and Wolverine Ultimate? You can find out in this comparison guide.

Quick Summary

When compared to the older Tournament Edition and Ultimate, the newer Razer Wolverine V2 features an ergonomic L-shaped hand grips with shorter reach to the bumper and shoulder buttons. It also comes equipped with non-slip rubber grips. Furthermore, the Wolverine V2 features a Mecha-Tactile D-Pad, which results in better responsiveness and tactile feedback, not found in the other two controllers. Last but not least, you have unlimited custom profiles when it comes to button assignments.

With that said, the Tournament Edition and Ultimate versions of the Razer Wolverine have more customization options than the Wolverine V2. Moreover, the two older gamepads come with more remappable multi-function buttons and software customizations. Both also take advantage of the Razer Chroma RGB to create custom lighting effects.

The Razer Wolverine Ultimate is the only controller in this comparison to feature interchangeable analog sticks and directional pads. It is also the only one to come with a carrying case.

Overall, we recommend getting the Razer Wolverine Ultimate if you want the most customization feature. On the other hand, the new Razer Wolverine V2 should be the most comfortable and responsive controller out of the three.
