Packaging & Unboxing

Following Corsair’s other newer peripherals, the Nightsword RGB is packaged in a similar black/yellow box. On the front of the box is a shot of the Nightsword showing off its rubber gripped top as well as some of its RGB zones with its illuminated Corsair logo and mouse wheel. Looking to the bottom of the box, we see the Nightsword being labelled as a “Performance Tunable FPS/MOBA Gaming Mouse” which can be configured using Corsair’s iCUE software.

Moving to the back of the box are a few more shots of the NIghtsword RGB with one of the photos showcasing its 6 removable weights. On the right side of the box, written in 4 different languages is a list of the Nightsword’s notable features which include:

  • Precision 18,00 DPI optical sensor
  • Smart tunable weight system that scales from 115g to 137g
  • Contoured shape with high-performance rubber grips
  • Ten programmable buttons
  • Two sets of weights and size mounting locations

Also written in four languages are the system’s requirements that are located at the bottom of the box which consists of a USB port, Windows 7/8/10, and an internet connection to download the iCUE software.
