Best Mouse for Warzone - The Ultimate Guide
If you're dropping into Verdansk any time soon you definitely won't be the only one. Call of Duty's second take on the battle royale genre is a straight hit with many gamers and the fact that it's free to play means that you can check it out without making any monetary sacrifices, so why wouldn't you?
If you're reading this article odds are you've already been convinced to play the game or you already have matches under your belt so let's get right into it. For this article we've been taking a look at what the most popular pro players and streamers are using, and we've used that data along with our expertise to come up with this list of five different mice. There's something here for any budget and hand size so this guide is an ideal starting point if you're looking to get yourself a top tier gaming mouse in your quest to get those Warzone Victory screens and helicopter extractions.
What makes a mouse good for Warzone?
Warzone is a game where enemies can quite literally come from all angles so theoretically it's a good idea to gravitate towards a mouse that's nimble and light so that you don't have any issues checking all around you, but our experience learns us that these things vary from person to person. We go more in-depth on the whole 'what makes a mouse good' subject in our article but in short we can say that the most important factor for a mouse is that it fits you. There's no advantage to using a mouse with a shape that you don't like just because your favorite pro uses it, for example.
Warzone is also a relatively simple game in the sense that there aren't tons of extra abilities and cooldowns that you have to have available to you at all times so a regular gaming mouse with the standard set of two side buttons should be more than enough. We notice that the pros that we analyze generally don't gravitate towards mice with many extra features and buttons as they only add to the bulk and weight of a mouse without them really being necessary for a game like this but of course this (again) comes down to personal preference.
What doesn't come down to personal preference is the fact that the sensor has to be flawless. You don't want to be bogged down by stuttering sensors or anything like that when you're in the midst of an intense aim battle. Of course you can rest assured that all the mice in this article have a flawless sensor but we mention it because some (budget) mice by unknown brands can still have subpar sensors in them.
1. Logitech G Pro Wireless
One of gaming's best
The Logitech G Pro Wireless is a mouse that we see pop up across all of our analyzed games, and there are a lot of good reasons for that. Of course it helps that it was the first truly ambitious wireless mice that combined a rechargeable battery with a low weight, a flawless sensor, and a completely lossless and interruption-free wireless connection but aside from that it's also just a really, really good mouse.
With a pretty safe ambidextrous shape and its medium size it's not going to offend many users and that combined with the crispy clicks, modular side buttons (so that our leftie friends can also use it) and pretty nice stock feet make it a mouse that would probably be picked up by a lot of players even without the wireless aspect.
Logitech decided to go all out, though, and this G Pro Wireless has a battery life of around 50 hours, weighs only 81 grams, and packs their flawless LIGHTSPEED wireless technology. This mouse has been out for a while now but other companies are only just catching up to what Logitech managed to put out, which is more evidence that this was (and still is) an extremely impressive product.
Why this one?
If you can't wait to cut the wire this is one of the most logical options to consider. Its safe ambidextrous shape accommodates variety of grips and hand sizes and the wireless aspect isn't just a gimmick to make the mouse sell either; this would be a great mouse even with a cable attached to it.
2. Zowie EC
An ergonomic classic
If you are looking for a no-nonsense, straight-shootin' gaming mouse with an ambidextrous shape it's hard to look past the Zowie EC series. This is one of the most legendary ergonomic gaming mice on the planet, and the shape of the EC line is still pretty much unrivaled to this day.
Zowie products are made from the ground up for competitive and professional gamers so you won't find any RGB strips here, nor will you find any software for that matter. The EC is plug and play with all of the needed tweaking being done on the mouse itself.
This line has been through many iterations already (click here to see an overview of the main versions of this mouse) but if you're looking for one we'd recommend the newest EC version since that is pretty much a 'greatest hits' collection of all the features that made this mouse so well-loved including, of course, a flawless 3360 sensor.
Why this one?
If you're looking for just about the best ergonomic shape out there you've got to try out the EC line. It's a no-nonsense gaming mouse that builds on what made it so popular in the first place, so if you're looking for the newest innovations such as an ultra lightweight shell or extremely flexible cable this won't be it but if you want to try out a classic with an amazing shape you should look at the EC.
3. Logitech G305
Wireless on a smaller scale
When the first leaks of this mouse started appearing everyone thought this was going to be the G Pro Wireless since the G305 has the exact same shape as the very first Logitech G Pro mouse (now called the 'G Pro Gaming Mouse') but alas Logitech decided to go another route with the name of this product.
The original G Pro shape was a bit of a 'love it or hate it' affair but people who did love it seemed to love it intensely. It's generally not a mouse for people with large hands but if you're someone who likes small mice or you've got smaller hands this could be the dream for you.
The G305 houses, just like its more ambitious successor, Logitech's flawless HERO sensor but it doesn't have a rechargeable battery. That's not really a huge deal as it lasts 250 ingame hours on a single battery though. Aside from the fact that it weighs significantly more (96 grams, though you can lower that weight rather easily with some non-invasive mods) and isn't rechargeable this is without a doubt a top tier wireless mouse. Using Logitech's LIGHTSPEED tech for that flawless wireless connection and their HERO sensor for perfect accuracy this is every bit as reliable as its more expensive and advanced sybling.
Why This One?
If you like smaller mice or you want to try wireless gaming on a smaller budget this is a great mouse to consider. There's also still the original G Pro Gaming Mouse if you like the shape but don't want to go wireless.
4. Xtrfy M4
Over the past year and a half or so a lot of gaming mouse companies have been holding a race to see who can produce the lightest gaming mouse possible. This idea was originally brought to the mainstream market by FinalMouse and ever since the release of their (extremely limited, hence the fact we can't recommend any of their products: they're simply not available) lightweight mice we've seen tons of companies create their own super light gaming peripherals to varying degrees of success.
The Xtrfy M4 is one of the best ultra lightweight (there isn't an official definition for this, but we consider anything under 70 grams to be 'ultra lightweight') mice out there at this point in time. At just 67 grams it's without a doubt extremely light, and while it's not the lightest mouse on the market it is extremely solidly built with a great cable, fantastic feet, flawless sensor, and satisfying clicks.
The shape is their own as well, which is something that we always applaud. Not everyone will like the pretty sudden curve at the back but aside from that this is a very comfortable ergonomic mouse.
Why this one?
If you want to jump on the ultralight mouse train and but can't really see the forest for the trees this is an excellent first choice. It's a great mouse on all fronts and unlike some other ultralight mice it's really nicely built.
5. Razer Viper Ultimate
Razer's candidate for the crown
The Logitech G Pro Wireless was an impressive piece of technology that was ahead of its time in some ways but now other companies are coming for the crown. The Razer Viper Ultimate is Razer's attempt to create the most complete wireless gaming mouse and we have to say that they really did their homework.
The flat and ambidextrous shape will please a lot of people (except for palm grippers) and the sensor is Razer's flawless top of the line Focus+ Optical so performance-wise there's nothing to worry about, but Razer didn't stop there. In an impressive feat of engineering they managed to stuff a rechargeable battery with a life of up to 70 hours in this mouse and keep the weight down at an astonishing 74 grams. Of course none of that would matter if the wireless tech dropped the ball, but their HyperSpeed Wireless performs as if the mouse was connected to a wire.
All in all this is an extremely impressive mouse, and while not everything about it is as top (the clicks, for example, are a bit mushy since they're the first version of Razer's optical clicks) it's without a doubt one of the best wireless mice you can get right now. Whether the G Pro Wireless takes the cake or this one will depend on what you prefer as far as shape goes.
Why this one?
If you want to a premium wireless experience (the charging dock really elevates the entire package) and a flatter ambidextrous shape this is one of the best mice on the market right now. The clicks do take some getting used to, and if you absolutely love crispy clicks this might not be for you.
