The Razer Turret is a wireless keyboard and mouse combo designed for the Xbox One.


Xbox One owners now have a solid alternative to their game controllers: Razer and Microsoft  have collaborated on a wireless keyboard-and-mouse combo called the Razer Turret .

It features a full-size mechanical keyboard with a dedicated Xbox key that pulls up the Xbox One dashboard. The mouse is modeled after the Razer Mamba wireless mouse and can sit on a retractable base that slides out from the keyboard.

In November, Microsoft rolled out keyboard and mouse support for a handful of games including Fortnite , Warframe and Bomber Crew.

The Turret mouse and keyboard have 16.8 million different color options. Razer worked alongside developers to support Xbox Dynamic Lighting and Razer Chroma in-game experiences on titles such as X-Morph-Defense and Vermintide 2 among others.


The mouse sits on a retractable base that can slide under the keyboard for charging and storage.


A single dongle connects the Turret to the Xbox One via a 2.4 GHz connection. Razer claims the keyboard and mouse combo can last up to 40 hours on a single charge. And the Razer Turret can work with a  Windows 10 PC, which is great if you split your time between an Xbox One and your computer.

The Razer Turret costs $250 which converts to about £200 or AU$350. It's available for preorder now on the Microsoft Store and each preorder comes with a $25 Xbox gift card.
