What makes a mouse good for PUBG?

PUBG is, as far as Battle Royale games go, one of the most straightforward games of the bunch. It's first person, doesn't feature any abilities or other wacky stuff, movement is pretty realistic, ... Because of the fact that you can't build or fly your way out of trouble your aim is going to be one of the most significant factors in winning fights, and as a result of that you'll need a solid, dependable mouse which doesn't necessarily need too many extra frills.

We recommend to go for a reliable, well built mouse with a good sensor and, perhaps most importantly, a nice and comfortable feeling in your hand. There's no need to go for anything super complicated for this game. The professionals seem to agree with that, with most of these mice featuring little to no extra buttons or other special functions, and some of these mice are universally lauded for their top shape.

Lots of PUBG pros have come from CSGO, so perhaps it's not that surprising that Zowie's widely lauded EC shape is a staple on many pro desks, though the inevitable G Pro Wireless/Superlight combo pops up in this game as well.

1. Logitech G Pro X Superlight

Retaking the crown

Logitech's G Pro Wireless was the gaming mouse to beat for more than a year thanks to its combination of flawless wireless tech and impressive specs, but after a while other companies did start to catch up. That's only natural, of course (and great for the consumer) but it did lead enthusiasts to look towards the Swiss brand to see what their next move was going to be.

The G Pro X Superlight lives up to its name in the sense that it's insanely light. With a weight of just 62 grams it would be light even for a wired model, but considering the fact that this is a rechargeable wireless mouse (with no holes in the shell) this weight is nothing less than extremely impressive.

Other improvements

The weight isn't the only thing that's been changed between the Pro X Superlight and the Pro Wireless. The Superlight also has better stock feet and different clicks that are shouldn't develop a double clicking problem, an issue that sometimes plagued the Pro Wireless.

Why this one?

If you want to go wireless and you like your mice to be as light as possible you should definitely take a look at the Pro X Superlight. Thanks to its safe shape and well-tuned specifications and features it can be picked up by just about anyone, making this a fantastic choice if you're not quite sure what your preferences are and you just want to get a mouse that you know is going to serve you well.

2. Zowie EC2

A Mouse Made For Shooters

The Zowie EC series was designed for first person shooters, and in particular for Counter-Strike. The 'EC' in the name stands for 'Emil Christensen,' better known as HeatoN, former Ninjas in Pyjamas CS professional. Zowie teamed up with HeatoN to design the perfect CS mouse and they came up with the EC series of mice.

The EC series might have been designed with CS in the back of the mind, but that doesn't mean that you can only use the EC2 for Counter-Strike. Aside from being an absolutely amazing mouse in its own right PUBG does shares some similarities with CSGO when it comes to overall gameplay, so don't let our little fun fact distract you.

A mouse of many faces

The EC line has gone through many different iterations. So many that it can be hard to see the forest for the trees with this particular mouse. For that reason we've outlined the differences between modern EC version in an article that you can browse in case you're interested. If you just want to get the latest version you should get the EC2-C. That has a lower weight, an improved scroll wheel, and a shoelace-like cable.

Amazing Shape

The EC family of mice have always been lauded as great gaming mice in general, and if you look at the spec sheet of these mice you can already tell why, but by far the most impressive and talked about aspect of this series of mice is the amazing shape.

Zowie mice have always been playing in the top leagues when it comes to shape, and the EC series seems to be the MVP. The shape feels really good for almost all grip types, and it's hard to describe just what makes the shape so good. Every angle of every curve just seems to be designed precisely to give you the most comfort possible, and while there are definitely other mice which come (very) close in terms of comfort, the EC series still has arguably the most comfortable ergo shape of them all. Of course shape is subjective, but if you're into ergo mice you should try this one out at least once.

Why This One?

If you want to get yourself a plug-and-play mouse that's built like a brick and made from the ground up for competitive gaming you should definitely check out the Zowie EC2. The most recent version is the EC2-C, which is the one we recommend if you're going to go for an EC2 since it features a couple of really exciting improvements over its predecessor.

3. Logitech G703

Cut the cord

The Logitech G703 is the wireless version of the older G403. It's also packing Logitech LIGHTSPEED technology, which means that it'll translate your movements and clicks almost instantly, sometimes doing so even faster than other wired mice would. This is a very impressive feat and a welcome change for this shape since the G403 originally came with a rather stiff braided cable.

Ergo shape

The G703 has an ergonomic shape, which seems to be hit or miss for a lot of people. It's got a rather pronounced hump to it which doesn't really sit well with some people, but if you like this sort of palm filling feeling with an ergonomic mouse the G703 is going to serve you really nicely.

Great spec sheet

Older versions of the G703 had the 3366 sensor in them. This is an older sensor, in the sense that it's the baseline upon which Logitech has built their HERO sensor, but it is also a flawless sensor, so you will always have a flawless performance no matter which one you get. The main difference (for most users) comes in the form of the power draw: the HERO sensor was designed to be used in wireless mice, meaning that it draws less power.

Aside from that the G703 has Omron switches, a nice scroll wheel, and a DPI button on the top of the shell (which is something that the G Pro Wireless lacks) so it's definitely a full-featured gaming mouse.

Why this one?

If you're looking to go wireless but you want a bit more heft and shape to your mouse this could be it. The G703 weighs in at around 100 grams (but feels lighter due to the fact that it's wireless) and is larger than the G Pro Wireless, so this could be your bet if you're looking for something a bit more substantial. Do note that the substantial hump at the back does not sit well with everyone, so the shape isn't necessarily super safe.

4. Zowie FK2

Ol' reliable

The ZOWIE FK line has long been ZOWIE's second most popular line of mice (and, consequently, their second most copied shape) so it's not all that surprising to see it pop up in this list. It has gone through many iterations at this point (click here for our article on those iterations) and it is basically the mouse to get if you like ZOWIE's design philosophy and you want to get a neutral, flat, and pretty long feeling ambidextrous mouse.

The most recent version has a great paracord-style cable and a 24-step scroll wheel, thus addressing the most commonly heard complaints about the older versions, so if you can live with the fact that it has a cable (still no word on when wireless ZOWIE mice are coming out, sadly) this could be the one for you.

Why this one?

If you want a reliable, no-nonsense gaming mouse with a neutral and low-profile ambidextrous shape you should look towards the FK2. It's built like a tank and will last you for many years.

5. Logitech G Pro Wireless

The old glory

When the G Pro Wireless was released, it took the gaming world by storm. Being the first competition-grade mouse with a flawless sensor, a flawless wireless connection, and a rechargeable battery, it didn't take long for pretty much the entire world of gaming to take notice.

The G Pro Wireless became the most used mouse across all of our analyzed games combined with relative ease, a position that it stayed at until it was replaced by its successor, the G Pro X Superlight. That one is lighter, has switches that are less error-prone, and better stock feet. Those aren't massive differences, so the G Pro Wireless is still a valid option today, years after its release.

Why This One?

If you like what you're reading about the Superlight's shape and design philosophy but you don't want to spend the money on it and/or you don't have an issue with heavier mice then the G Pro Wireless could be just the product for you.

Conclusion: The best Mouse for PUBG

PUBG is a fairly simple game by design. You don't have a lot of extra stuff to do besides walking or driving around and shooting other people. As such you don't need a very heavily customizable or feature-rich mouse, and that's reflected in the choices of our pros.

All of the mice in our top 5 are pretty standard 'run of the mill' gaming mice, in the sense that they don't include extra buttons, switches, or useless (for PUBG) features.

As always it's important to take these sorts of lists with a grain of salt. What works for one person might not work for you. So take this list as a guideline, and feel free to experiment and look around elsewhere on our website. Finding the right mouse can be a very long and exhausting journey, but we hope this list has at least helped you a bit.

Good luck out there and thanks for reading!
