Best Wireless Gaming Mouse


It’s not too long ago that playing a competitive game with a wireless gaming mouse would be a laughable idea due to the latency and performance issues associated with it, but those days are long gone. These days, a manufacturer releasing a wired mouse without also offering a wireless versions has to have a really good explanation as to why they’re not releasing a wireless edition. All the major brands have their own wireless technology, and wireless mice truly outweigh their wired counterparts. In this list, we’ll go over our five top choices for best wireless gaming mouse, and give you some information on them.

Why choose a wireless gaming mouse?

If you came here wondering about whether or not a wireless mouse is better than a corded mouse then we’ll have to disappoint you because the answer is that ‘it depends.’ Much of what makes a gaming mouse good will depend on your personal preferences, so there’s really nothing to gain from using a wireless mouse that has a shape that you don’t like, for example.

The most obvious advantage that wireless mice have over their wired counterparts is that they are, well… wireless. These days, mice with a cable are becoming increasingly rare, and if a brand releases a wired gaming mouse it usually has a flexible and light cable that’s a far cry from the thick cables you used to get, but even the very best cables are still (obviously) physically here. How much cable drag annoys you is a personal thing but it can’t be denied that eliminating the possibility of running over your own cable and what not is a net advantage.

In the past you had to make great sacrifices to achieve this free feeling of going cordless; wireless mice were historically unreliable so they were an obvious no-go for competitive gamers but these days manufacturers have managed to crack the code and deliver lossless and reliable connections that are as fast as their wired siblings, or in some cases even faster.

So when looking at the whole thing in isolation there are pretty much no drawbacks to using a wireless mouse, and one huge positive (no cable to worry about). With the technology becoming more mainstream, there are some very viable budget options out there as well, and it’ll only be a matter of time before wired gaming mice become as rare as their wireless counterparts once were if you ask us. It’s true that some people also really dislike having yet another product that needs recharging in their life so wireless mice aren’t the end all be all for everyone, but as gear lovers we can only applaud the fact that this technology is now a legitimate option.

The List

This list came to be by combining usage numbers in the pro scene along with our staff’s expertise. The mice in this list thus aren’t solely based on pro numbers like some of our other lists are. All of the mice in this list are actively being used by professionals, however, and all are great options if you’re shopping around for a wireless gaming mouse for competitive gaming. The mice in this list aren’t in any particular order.

Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro

Razer’s DeathAdder is a classic in the gaming mouse world. It has been around for ages and it’s one of the most popular gaming mice ever, but that mainstream success hasn’t always translated to the pro scene. That changed with the release of the DeathAdder V3 Pro. The shape change (the DAV3 is boxier and more compact-feeling than its predecessors) might have something to do with it, but it’s also quite simply a mouse that’s packed to the brim with exciting technology.

Capable of polling rates up to 4000Hz (with a special HyperPolling dongle), this mouse comes with Razer’s cutting edge Focus Pro 30K sensor, along with the third generation of their optical switches for a lightning-fast and accidental double click-free gaming experience, no matter how long you’ve used the mouse.

All of this comes in a sturdily built mouse that weighs just 63 grams, making this one of the most impressive wireless gaming mice on the market today.

VAXEE XE Wireless

VAXEE is a company that probably won’t ring any bells with the more casual gamers, but competitive shooter players will definitely know what this brand is all about. Founded by the people behind the original ZOWIE company, VAXEE is all about performance.

The XE Wireless is the brand’s first wireless mouse, and it’s an immediate hit. Despite its weight (which might be too high for people who are fully aboard the lightweight train) it is an absolute top performer, and if you’re looking for a reliable wireless mouse with an ambidextrous shape that’s just a little more curved and formed than what the Logitech G Pro X Superlight (which is pretty much the ‘standard gaming mouse’ these days) offers you can look towards the XE.

All configuration of this mouse is done on the mouse itself, but VAXEE released a competitive version firmware update for people who absolutely want to squeeze every last drop of performance out of this product, even if it means making sacrifices when it comes to the battery life.

Logitech G Pro X Superlight

If you’re even a little bit into (competitive) gaming, the Superlight won’t need an introduction, but we’ll introduce it anyway for people who are out of the loop. The Logitech G Pro X Superlight is the de facto standard issue gaming mouse due to its safe shape and flawless performance, and it’s one of the most prolific gaming mice of the past decade. You can read our article about the mouse to learn more about why that is, but it suffices to know that this mouse is one of the top recommendations for people who are looking for a gaming mouse and perhaps aren’t all too sure about their preferences yet.

Today, the Micro USB charging port is outdated, but the technology behind the Superlight is flawless, and it’s still very much a top performer even years after its release.

Pulsar X2 (Bruce Lee Edition & Other Updated Versions)

Pulsar is a relatively new brand, but when they released their first wireless mouse (the Xlite, of which we reviewed the V2 version) it was immediately picked up by enthusiasts and some professional gamers because of its great performance and impressive features.

The X2 is an ambidextrous design with a decently pronounced back hump and a rather low button height, making it an interesting new option in a sea of clones. If you’re used to ambidextrous mice this won’t have any big surprises, but it’s nice to see something relatively fresh every once in a while.

In case you’re wondering whether you should get the regular X2 or the Bruce Lee Edition: we definitely recommend the Bruce Lee. It has optical switches and a better coating and it’s worth the slightly higher price tag if you ask us, but the regular X2 is also a great option.

Pulsar X2 Bruce Lee Edition

The Pulsar X2 Bruce Lee Edition brings a few improvements over the regular version with the inclusion of optical switches and a different coating. With the top tier internals and ditto performance, this is one of the best wireless gaming mice you can buy today.

ZOWIE’s mice have always been a favorite of tactical shooter players, so it’s logical to include the wireless version of their most popular mouse silo in this list. The EC-CW is basically everything that you know and love about ZOWIE in a wireless package. No drivers, no RGB: just a focus on performance.

The EC-CW comes with an extended receiver (as well as a regular receiver) so that you’re always getting a perfect reception even if you’re playing in environments that are crowded with wireless equipment, and even though it’s perhaps not the flashiest release that’s out right now thanks to the older sensor and higher weight we’ve seen tons of pros switching over to the wireless ZOWIE mice regardless of the aforementioned concerns. If you’re a tactical shooter player and you’re looking for an ergonomic mouse you should definitely look towards this one.

❝The ZOWIE EC3-CW is ZOWIE’s first foray into the world of wireless gaming mice, and if you’re looking for that typical ZOWIE experience in a wireless package, this is it. ZOWIE isn’t a brand that strays from their ideals in order to pursue the latest hype, and the CW line is a perfect example of that. You get an extremely well-built mouse with solid, heavy-duty clicks that’s focused on control and stability. As a wireless ZOWIE mouse, this is pretty much exactly what I had imagined.❞

Best Wireless Gaming Mouse – Conclusion

Wireless mice are the new standard. That much is sure. As such, there’s less and less need for a specialized article like this (in a year’s time it will probably be more interesting to make a ‘best wired mouse’ article, since those are becoming increasingly rare) since most of the best gaming mice are going to be wireless in this day and age, but it’s still an interesting opportunity for people who don’t really follow the gaming mouse world to see what’s out there. Hopefully this list serves as an ideal starting poitn for people who are looking for their first wireless gaming mouse. If you have any questions or remarks, please feel free to reach out!
