Default M65 Mouse - Sniper button for Zoom AND DPI?

I asked this question a few years back, and there were no definitive answers, so I figured I would ask again.

I'd like to use the sniper button to both zoom in AND decrease the DPI. The current sniper mode only decreases the DPI.

Is there any way to do what I'm asking? Macros? Some kind of mode shifting?

Try to set the key binding/mapping in the games.

You may bind the zoom-in function to the mouse sniper button if your games support the sniper button. But I don't expect many games supporting it.

I tried macros and they didn't work. When you map a function to your sniper button, its original function, the extremely low DPI, won't work, and is replaced instead.

Maybe you should contact their technical support.

Well, I think your idea is good.

If I were Corsair's engineer, I wouldn't ignore this post.

I agree, that would leave right click open for a variety of things, like 'nades or switching to your sidearm in CS:GO. I can see it being used for productivity purposes as well. Being able to map both DPI and another function would be a nice option.

If you are using an advanced profile, you can set the key to retain the original key input.

So, you can remap it AND use it to drop the DPI.

You just have to click on the wrench and screwdriver symbol on the top right of the box at the bottom.
