What makes a mouse good for gaming?


The gaming mouse. It’s easily the most popular peripheral out there. It’s one of the first pieces of kit that people invest in when they decide to build a serious gaming setup, and it makes sense too. Your mouse should be an extension of you in the game world; it should effortlessly translate whatever you’re doing on your desk to the game with pinpoint precision. You can be the most gifted aimer in the world, but if you’re playing with a mouse that does not translate that aim with the same precision you will miss shots, rounds, and games.

That’s why, in order for a mouse to even be considered as a good gaming mouse, it should have a flawless sensor. A flawless sensor in this case means that there is no predictionsmoothingacceleration, or jittering. You’ll want the sensor to move your cursor exactly the way you’re moving your mouse on your pad, imperfections and all.

The cool thing (or bad thing, if you’re asking your wallet) about mice is that so much of it comes down to personal preference. Things like build quality, durability, button performance, sensor performance, and so on can all be judged objectively, but as far as shape, weight, size, coating, button tensioning, and features go it’s all up to personal opinion.

Obviously there are limits to everything; you can prefer heavier mice but a mouse that weighs over two pounds isn’t gonna be ideal for precise aiming, for example. Aside from obvious factors it’s all down that what you prefer however.

In general, we’d say that the most important factors to consider (aside from the sensor) are shape and size. A mouse can have everything going for it, but if it doesn’t fit your hand or grip style then you won’t be performing at your top level with it, no matter how much you’d want to.

For all of these reasons, the journey for the ‘endgame’ mouse is a difficult one for most people. There are so many factors to consider and so many options out there that it can be really hard to see the forest for the trees, and once you’ve found a mouse that you really, really like some company out there will come out with a new product that piques your interest and the adventure starts all over again.

It can be a good idea to try as many mice as possible (provided your wallet can carry that burden) but once you’ve settled on a shape/design that you like, we recommend sticking with it. It’s quite easy to go from one medium-sized ambidextrous mouse to another, for example, but switching from a small, lightweight ambidextrous mouse to a large and heavy ergonomic mouse can and probably will result in a performance penalty until you’re used to the difference. So by all means: feel free to experiment and try things out, but know that it is good to have a ‘main’ to fall back on.

The List


For this list we’re taking a look at what the pros are using. As you’ll be able to see, wireless mice have well and truly become the norm in the professional gaming scene, with all of the big brands offering wireless versions of their flagship mice at this point in time. Wireless mice have been as reliable as wired ones for quite some time now (if you’re buying from a reputable manufacturer, that is) so unless you’re on a very tight budget there’s absolutely no reason to go for a wired mouse.

Something that you’ll also notice when browsing through this list is that the pros favor simple (at least on the exterior) pointers over mice with tons of extra buttons and functionalities. A reliable mouse with two side buttons is all you need if you look at the professionals, and unless you’re someone who absolutely needs additional buttons we recommend you to keep it simple, too.

Logitech G Pro X Superlight


We’ll be honest: we thought that the successor to the already extremely popular Logitech G Pro Wireless wouldn’t surpass that mouse’s insane usage numbers. The G Pro Wireless, as you may or may not know, was basically the first top tier wireless gaming mouse to hit the market, leading it to be picked up by massive amounts of professional and casual gamers alike. It took competitors a while to catch up or even release their own wireless technology, but eventually they did, meaning that there were more options to choose from when the Superlight launched. All of that didn’t stop the Superlight from becoming even more popular than its predecessor, however.

Around 30% of players are currently using the Superlight. Those numbers are extremely impressive, and there are a couple of reasons for that. There’s the fact that it comes from a line of well-known and loved gaming mice, but it also has its shape going for it. The Superlight has an extremely safe shape (affectionately called ‘potato shape’ by fans) which means that it can be picked up by just about anyone, and that’ll obviously help with the adoption numbers.

Under the hood it also has everything going for it. While some components are a bit outdated (mechanical switches are slowly being phased out for optical switches, and the Micro USB charging port also shows the age of the GPX) its performance is still very much up to par with today’s standards. Couple all of that with the fact that Logitech is a trusted and well-known brand and you’ve got a smash hit on your hands.

The Logitech G Pro X Superlight is basically ‘the industry standard’ mouse at this point in time, and you really can’t go wrong with it, even in 2023.

Logitech G Pro Wireless


The Logitech G Pro Wireless is basically one of the founding fathers of the current mouse scene. Despite the fact that Logitech released two other (flawless) wireless mice before this one came out, it can’t be denied that the GPW (as it’s commonly abbreviated) was a step above those two. With a rechargeable battery, a flawless sensor, a very safe shape, and a completely lag-free and flawless wireless connection, the GPW took the gaming world by storm.

It has since been overtaken by its successor, the G Pro X Superlight, but the fact that the GPW is still in active use today is a testament to how good it was when it first released.

G Pro Wireless versus G Pro X Superlight

If you’re convinced that you want a G Pro mouse, but you’re not quite sure about which one to get then we can be pretty short: the main differences when it comes to actual ingame performance between the two can be seen in the weight, the skates, and the side buttons. The mouse feet on the GPW are serviceable, but aren’t nearly as smooth and pleasant to use as the feet on the Superlight. The Superlight is also much lighter, making for a more nimble and lightweight gaming experience. The final big difference can be seen in the side buttons: the GPW has (modular) side buttons on the right side, while the Superlight doesn’t have those.

If you can live with all of the changes between the GPW and the GPX, the GPW is still perfectly serviceable as a top tier gaming mouse, and it can be found at pretty low prices these days.

Logitech has set out to create the ultimate gaming mouse with the G Pro Wireless, and as far as I’m concerned they have succeeded in that task. It’s without a doubt one of the most hyped up releases of the past few years, and for good reason too.

Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro


The Razer DeathAdder is an iconic line of gaming mice. Pretty much everyone who has been into competitive gaming will probably know of it, but in recent years Razer’s flagship gaming mouse had been falling down the ranks in our most used pro lists. That all changed when the V3 Pro was released, though.

Razer not only gave the DeathAdder V3 Pro (commonly referred to as ‘DAVE’ or DAV3′) an internal tuneup, but they also changed the exterior. In one of the biggest shape changes since the release of the very first DeathAdder, this newest version is a lot more compact than the long, flat-feeling DeathAdders that came before it. Whether or not this is a change that sits well with you personally will of course depend on personal preferences, but it seems to have been a smash hit with the professionals.

Under the hood, the DAV3 is one of the best mice you can get right now. It’s capable of 4KHz polling rates (you do need a special dongle for that, though), it has pretty much the most advanced sensor on the market, and Razer’s Optical Switches ensure that you’ll never have to deal with any accidental double clicks.

Pros

  • Great build quality
  • Flawless wireless connection
  • Great battery life (90 hours)
  • Capable of 4KHz polling rate in wireless mode (with separate dongle)
  • Gen 3 optical switches feel great

Cons

  • Price is high
  • Side buttons have too much post travel
  • Shape change might not sit well with everyone
  • 4KHz polling rate not achievable out of the box (you need a separate dongle)

Razer Viper Ultimate


The Razer Viper Ultimate was Razer’s answer to the G Pro Wireless, and it was a fantastic answer. The Viper Ultimate introduced a number of features to the market that are now becoming mainstream, with the most important one being the optical switches. These ensure that there’s no chance of accidental double clicks that develop over time, and they’re also more durable and reliable than mechanical switches.

Under the hood there’s the flawless Focus+ sensor, and that combined with Razer’s impressive wireless technology makes for a mouse that packs a mean punch. The inclusion of an added charging dock means that you will never run out of battery life, and the dock also doubles as a handy battery life indicator if you want it to.

The Viper Ultimate was succeeded by the Viper V2 Pro. That one has newer optical switches, sports a lower weight (though it had to give up the docking functionality in order to achieve that) and does away with the rubber side grips as well as the side buttons on the right. There’s also no RGB on the V2. Due to it being an older release, you can snag the Viper Ultimate at very friendly prices these days, and given the fact that it’s still a top performer it could definitely be an option for budget-conscious gamers.

The fact that this is a wireless mouse with a lag-free connection and flawless sensor, complete a rechargeable battery (with a life of around 70 hours) at a mere 74 grams is impressive enough on its own but Razer has managed to get over the proverbial bar and then set it even higher with a number of interesting upgrades.

  • Optical switches are more reliable than mechanical ones

Razer Viper V2 Pro


The Razer Viper V2 Pro is the successor to the already very impressive Viper, and it manages to gracefully jump over the already high bar that its older sibling had set. The V2 Pro goes all in on the esports angle, cutting its weight down to just 59 grams. These weight savings had to come from somewhere, so the V2 Pro doesn’t have any RGB lights, nor does it have side buttons on the right side. It’s also not compatible with the charging dock that the V1 came with, and that’s a change that not everyone has liked.

If you’re looking for a top tier competitive gaming mouse, however, the V2 Pro has got you covered. The Gen 3 Optical Switches feel amazing to use and have all of the upsides of optical switches without any of the drawbacks that the early opticals had. The cutting edge sensor along with the top tier wireless performance from Razer is bundled in a mouse that feels very solidly built. If you like the shape and the specs, this could be your main for years to come.

All in all, the Razer Viper V2 Pro is an impressive release, and if you’re looking for a very lightweight wireless ambidextrous mouse you should take a look at this one. It’s packed full of exciting tech, performs flawlessly, and it feels rock solid despite weighing less than a tennis ball.

Pros

  • Flawless wireless performance
  • Removed right side buttons make for a more consistent grip, but makes the mouse unusable for lefties
  • Capable of 4KHz polling rate in wireless mode (with separate dongle)

ZOWIE EC-CW


ZOWIE’s mice have always been a favorite among professional tactical shooter players. They’ve released so many versions of their mice in recent years that it’s tough for one particular iteration to gain enough users to grab a spot in the most used top 5, but if you combine all of their versions then it’s clear that it’s still a massively well liked mouse.

The EC-CW line is the first wireless iteration of ZOWIE’s classic mouse, and the brand does it in their own style. Rather than chasing the lightweight trend like so many others do, ZOWIE have opted to go for a more stable-feeling weight, a choice that seems to be appreciated by CS:GO and VALORANT professionals. Just like all ZOWIE mice, the EC-CW is a driverless mouse that’s built like a tank, so if you’re looking for a reliable mouse to use for holding those off angles in your favorite tactical shooter then the EC-CW might be it.

It also comes with an enhanced receiver, which eliminates any interference. This isn’t as much of a problem for casual gamers but it can be handy for pros, who are often playing at LAN tournaments where the setups can be a bit unpredictable. The enhanced receiver also doubles as a charging dock so that you’ll virtually never run out of battery life. The sensor included in the CW line is a bit of an older one, but it is completely flawless, so if you’re looking for an endgame-tier ergonomic shape you simply have to take a look at 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 Gaming Mouse – Staff Picks


Pros generally tend to prefer one type of mouse, so in the interest of giving our readers more options to choose from we are giving you five additional picks, ranging from budget shooter mice to MMO mice with tons of buttons. Our goal is to offer picks for everyone, regardless of your wallet size and game preference. These staff picks aren’t in any particular order.

VAXEE XE Wireless – Best Competitive Gaming Mouse


VAXEE is a company that has put the performance of their products at the forefront of their minds ever since the company was founded. This was just a couple of years ago, so it’s very impressive that their products have managed to find their way into the hands of so many professional players, since new brands usually have a bit of trouble with getting recognition in the professional scene.

The XE Wireless is the company’s first wireless mouse, and it immediately managed to impress. Its wireless performance is up there with the very best, and when VAXEE released an optional firmware update to improve the response times of the mouse even further right after its official release, it was clear that this company is ran by gamers who are as passionate about performance as even the most demanding pros.

The XE Wireless isn’t the mouse to get if you like tweaking the RGB and playing around with macros, but if you’re someone who is looking for an extremely reliable, plug-and-play ambidextrous mouse made for competitive gaming then you absolutely have to put the XE Wireless on your list.

VAXEE’s first wireless release doesn’t disappoint. I love the fact that this company is so focused on tryhard competitive gamers that they released a firmware update to make the mouse even snappier (at the expense of some features) after its release, and the sensor implementation and wireless technology that’s driving this mouse are fantastic.

Pros

  • Flawless wireless connection and performance
  • Extreme focus on competitive gamers with features like competitive mode
  • Fantastic build quality
  • Multi-device functionality (you need two receivers for this though)
  • Fast charging battery
  • 4KHz compatible since March 2024

Logitech G305 – Best Budget Gaming Mouse


The Logitech G305 is a mouse that proves that great technology doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. This small, AA battery-powered mouse houses all the components that make Logitech’s flagship mice tick. With a flawless sensor and a lag-free wireless connection you’ve got no need to worry about your mouse’s performance, nor do you need to worry about the cable.

The G305 has been out for a while, so it does show its age in some respects. The weight is considered to be heavy by today’s standards, and rechargeable batteries are very much the norm these days. With that AA battery you do get a battery life of a whopping 250 ingame hours, however, so it all depends on what your preferences are.

Due to its smaller size and egg-shaped design with flat sides, it won’t be for everyone, but if you can get along with this kind of shape and you’re on a budget then the G305 is still a fantastic option even today.

Xtrfy MZ1 Wireless – Best Unique Shape


If you’re somewhat interested in the world of gaming mice you will know that there’s lots of ‘samey’ stuff out there. The amount of ZOWIE EC clones, for example, is hard to even quantify. There’s a reason for that: once you find what works, you stick with it, but we do love it when a brand goes out on a limb and tries something new. The Xtrfy MZ1 is a prime example of that.

The MZ1 was made in collaboration with Zy “RocketJumpNinja” Rykoa, and it incorporates his ideas on aiming and what a good gaming mouse should be like. This mouse has a fairly low button height and a decent-sized hump towards the back, and that combined with the very deep comfort grooves makes for a very unique experience. The inclusion of the second back shell means that you can somewhat customize the feeling of the mouse, but it goes without saying that this isn’t the one to get if you’re a large-handed palm gripper, for example.

Xtrfy took a leap of faith with this mouse, and it worked out. This mouse is a top performer, and even though its shape isn’t for everyone (and that’s okay: it would be an awfully boring scene otherwise) it’s got everything it needs to be called a high tier gaming mouse.

Razer Naga Pro – Best MMO Mouse


Brands are falling over each other trying to come out with the lightest, most stripped down mouse that’s focused on competitive FPS players, but MMOs are still among the most popular esports games out there, and luckily there are some great picks for people who are more into that genre.

The Razer Naga Pro is a mouse that is made for all kinds of games, but due to the weight and the overall heftiness of the mouse we would recommend you to only go for this one if your main focus is MMO games. The extra buttons on the MMO panel can really help in games where there are a ton of abilities that you need to quickly access, and if you’re someone who likes to tone it down once in a while you can very easily swap out the side panel on the mouse.

All of this MMO goodness comes packed in a nicely designed mouse, complete with top drawer Razer tech such as their wireless technology and their Focus+ sensor. The mouse performs completely flawlessly so that you can focus on your performance and you can be sure that you’re not being hampered should you choose to play some competitive FPS games every once in a while.

The Razer Naga Pro sets out to complete one mission: it wants to be a top tier ‘all options’ gaming mouse mainly focused on MMO gamers and for me that’s definitely mission accomplished. If you’re someone who absolutely loves these larger and heavier ergonomic mice and/or you want a mouse with a great deal of customizability and extra options this is a sweet deal.

Logitech G502 X – Best Multi-Button Gaming Mouse


Hardcore competitive gamers often forget that there’s a world of people out there who don’t want the latest and lightest peripheral. The popularity of the Logitech G502 line is a perfect example of that: this is a mouse with extra buttons and a comfy thumb rest aimed at people who prefer comfort and utility over everything else.

That’s not to say that the G502 X is a subpar mouse, though. With Logitech’s HERO sensor, it performs every bit as flawlessly as the most popular competitive FPS shooter mice from Logitech, so if you’re someone who loves the design idea behind the G502 X you can get this one and rest assured that your performances won’t be held back by this mouse at all.

If you’re someone who is always looking to top the scoreboard and climb the ranks of the latest twitchy FPS shooters then this might not be the mouse for you, but if you want a comfortable ergonomic experience with lots of extra buttons and functionalities then you should definitely look towards this one.

Logitech G502 X

The G502 X is part of a legendary family of mice; the G502 line. This line of mice is aimed more towards casual gamers who want a ‘do it all’ type of mouse. Thanks to the myriad of extra buttons you’re getting a ton of extra functionality, and the thumb rest can greatly enhance the comfort of this mouse if that’s the sort of thing you’re after.

Pros

  • Tons of buttons
  • Comfortable, ‘productivity-style’ mouse design
  • Good build quality

Cons

  • Very bulky and unwieldy, making it less suited for fast-paced games
  • A bit heavy for today’s standards
