Flickdown Switches

With a simple flick of the thumb, the two lower buttons can be pressed quickly and naturally. Alternatively, these buttons can be locked and function as an extended thumb rest.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if the Rival 500 is the right gaming mouse for me?
Great question! The Rival 500 is the perfect moba/mmo gaming mouse for gamers that want a next-gen side button layout, tactile alerts, and a top-tier optical sensor. Alternatively, you can use our interactive mouse guide, and compare the Rival 500 with our other gaming mice here
Why didn't SteelSeries use the 12 button grid like other MMO gaming mice use?
We believe that it's time for a change, and the outdated number grid design no longer meets the needs of gamers. After three years of exhaustive testing and iterating, we developed a revolutionary side button layout built entirely around how your thumb and hand interact with the mouse.
How do I request a customized nameplate for my Rival 500?
We do not make customized nameplates for each individual Rival 500, but you can create your own nameplate with a 3D printer. The files for the nameplate can be downloaded from the link provided in the specifications section of this page.
Will the Rival 500's tactile alerts affect my accuracy or precision?
Absolutely not, the Rival 500's alerts will never impact your tracking performance. By designing the motor to go up and down, as opposed to left and right, we can ensure that the tactile alerts will never impact tracking accuracy.
