We make sure to spend at least a week with every single gaming mouse we review to ensure that we have enough real-world experience to give it a fair and accurate judgement, testing out the major features including sensor sensitivity, how the clickers and buttons feel as well as the battery life of any wireless models.
And if you can’t see anything on this list that catches your eye right now, make sure to bookmark this page and come back soon, as we endeavour to update this list as soon as we review and publish more high-scoring peripherals.
Moreover, if you know you’re after a wireless mouse that can be used for everyday workloads, make sure you take a look at our best wireless mouse roundup. But without further ado, here are the best options on the market right now when it comes to gaming mice.
Razer Viper V2 Pro
The Razer Viper V2 Pro has set a new benchmark for a wired gaming mouse, making it the absolute best option for gamers who crave the ultimate performance.
Sensitivity has hit new heights, with Razer flaunting an impressive 30,000 DPI, making the Viper V2 Pro the most responsive gaming mouse on the market. During testing, we found the 30,000 DPI to be too sensitive for the vast majority of games, but it’s easy enough to dial back for the sensitivity and it’s great to have the option.
Logitech G203 Lightsync
Inside, its 8000 DPI sensor is actually at the higher end for more casual-oriented mice (compared to the likes of the Razer DeathAdder Essential, for instance) and works well for FPS titles especially. In playing some CS:GO and Apex Legends, we found that the G203 Lightsync felt nicely responsive. As this is more of a mouse for less-hardcore gamers, it also works well in day-to-day tasks with more than enough sensitivity to get by.
Its construction is nice and hard-wearing for the price, with the G203 Lightsync’s black plastic outer shell feeling robust. It’s worth noting this is a good looking mouse too, with a minimalistic aesthetic as put forward by it only having the most essential of buttons. This can also be looked on as quite a cute mouse, given its smaller size that makes it great for travelling, as well as the fact it’s available in a multitude of colours, including black (pictured), white, lilac and blue.
Roccat Kain 200 AIMO
The Roccat Kain 200 AIMO represents one of the best value wireless gaming mice out there today. It gives a lot more expensive mice a good run for its money with its sleek design, powerful sensor, and bright RGB lighting.
Its outer shell isn’t made of the usual plastics, and instead features this smooth rubberised coating that feels especially comfortable and soft. During a day’s working and gaming, we found that the Kain 200 AIMO was immensely comfortable and pleasing to hold. For our money, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more comfortable mouse for the price.
