(Pocket-lint) - Fresh from unveiling its Call of Duty: Black Ops peripherals range, Mad Catz also used Gamescom as the opportunity to unleash its latest high-end gaming mouse onto the world.

The Cyborg RAT 9 is the upgrade to the RAT 7 which was launched at CES back in January.

Like its predecessor it is a 5600dpi pointer, but adds an extra 7g of removable weights (up to 42g) and crucially, includes next-gen 2.4GHz connectivity for a fully wireless experience.

It comes in a tin full of goodies, including Allen keys to adjust pretty much every grip-able part of this badass looking device (even your pinkie-grip location), and two lithium batteries that give up to 10 hours of gameplay.

You'll also get a desktop charging station so you've only got yourself to blame if your RAT 9 gives out half way through a massive gunfight on Counter-Strike.

A Mad Catz boffin explained the finer points of the mouse's accuracy to Pocket-lint over in Cologne:

"The Next generation 2.4GHz technology that we're using gives you a 0.01 millisecond latency rate, so even for the pro-gamers who rely on muscle memory you're just not gonna notice any lag so we really think it's the finest wireless solution out there".

Steelseries celebrates its 20th anniversary, a legacy of glory

The mouse has up to 15 programmable mapping options on it as well as a precision aim feature, allowing you to be Léon Montana-style accurate with your headshots.

The Cyborg RAT 9 should be hitting the shops in the next month or so and will set you back £119.99.
