Finding the right weapon for your BEST FPS GAMING MICE can be difficult. There are a plethora of gaming mice options out there all with their own benefits and weaknesses. What’s more is that everyone’s hand size and shape, as well as preferences, are different.So we had to give you our reviews BEST FPS GAMING MICE 2017.
That being said, there are a lot of gaming mice that we can simply weed out. Those that don’t have the accuracy, precision, and grip necessary to play competitively in the FPS space won’t find themselves on a list like this one.
So, if you’re looking for the perfect gaming mouse, take a look at the mice below, and choose whichever one is comfortable and matches your grip.
Before I begin, it’s important to realize that any of the gaming mice on this list are perfectly reasonable options for FPS games. What it’s most likely to come down to are size and shape.
For these types of games, I usually prefer a mouse that’s lightweight and rather small and easy to move around. Anything that’s bulky, tends to slow me down. Your preference might be different than that, so be sure to let me know by voting in our poll below and leaving a comment.
BEST FPS GAMING MICE 2017 – Razer DeathAdder Chroma
The Razer DeathAdder Chroma is the obvious choice here when it comes to palm style grips. Modern versions of this mouse come with what’s labeled a 4G sensor vs. the 3.5G sensor on the previous version. For those who want to get technical, the DeathAdder uses the Avago S3988 sensor which I consider to be a nearly flawless option.
This gives it a bit more accuracy, but not a ton of added value vs. older styles. What I like most about the DeathAdder has everything to do with the shape and weight of it and not the LEDs and fancy cables.
Regardless of what anyone says about it, the Razer DeathAdder Chroma is still the most trusted gaming mouse out there. This is likely because it works with the most hand types and grip styles while remaining comfortable. I still highly recommend it.
BEST FPS GAMING MICE 2017 – Mionix Castor
I recently received a sample of the Castor from Mionix (you can see my video below). It quickly turned into the best mouse I’ve ever had due to its quality, sensor, weight, and shape.
Admittedly, I’m a gamer with large hands that prefers a small and lightweight mouse. Those who are looking for something heavy will be disappointed here.
The build quality is top notch with a grippy plastic and rubberized side grips. For the sensor, the Castor uses the ADNS 3310 which is both accurate and consistent. LED lighting can be adjusted to one of just about any color you can think of and then set to various effects.
Overall, the Castor is, in my opinion, Mionix’s best entry to date. I much prefer the shape of it to the Avior and Naos 7000.
BEST FPS GAMING MICE 2017 – SteelSeries Rival 300
A good alternative to the DeathAdder would be the SteelSeries Rival. SteelSeries is known for their quality products in the gaming industry and the Rival 300 is popular among many of my pro-FPS friends. One of the main reasons is that it’s not as wide as the DeathAdder thus making it good for people with medium sized hands.
One of the main reasons is that it’s not as wide as the DeathAdder thus making it good for people with medium sized hands. On the other hand, it’s a bit heavier at 103 grams.
For design, the Rival 300 screams quality with its rubber side grips, Omron switches, and 3310 optical sensor. The LED lighting can be illuminated in two different zones. For color it comes in gunmetal, black, and white.
BEST FPS GAMING MICE 2017 – The Logitech G403 Prodigy
The Logitech G403 is ideal in terms of accuracy and cost. It uses the Avago S3366 optical sensor which is another nearly flawless option.
For size, this one is very comparable to the DeathAdder but a little more straight. So, I’d recommend it for medium to large-sized hands. It’s lightweight at around 90g for the wired version and as such is very comfortable over long gaming sessions. It’s a bit wide, so again, it may come down to a bit of personal preference.
In addition to the wired version, the G403 also comes with a wireless option. Believe it or not, I noticed no difference in delay between the two. The biggest difference is actually the weight with the wireless version coming in at 106g.
Overall, the G403 is definitely worth your attention if you liked the G402 or other similar Logitech versions.
BEST FPS GAMING MICE 2017 – Zowie EC2-A
If you haven’t heard of the Zowie EC2, it’s definitely a mouse you consider. It’s a mouse which is accurate with the Avago A3310 optical sensor. Because of its shape, it’s also good with palm, claw, or even fingertip grips.
It comes in two sizes the EC2-A for medium and small hands and the EC1-A for large hands. It’s lightweight at around 95g for the EC2 and 98g for the EC1.
The Zowie EC2 and EC1 is a contender, not a pretender and definitely will be preferable to many. You’ll love the low lift off distance of under 1.55mm and it has really nice large teflon feet for a really good glide overall.
It doesn’t have software that comes with it and quite frankly it’s not the prettiest mouse I’ve ever seen. That being said, it is one of the best I’ve ever played with so the look, doesn’t really matter.
BEST FPS GAMING MICE 2017 – Logitech G502 Porteus
With a PMW3366 sensor, accuracy isn’t the first thing you have to worry about with this mouse. More than anything is the shape. It has a thumb rest which some people really like and some hate.
For scroll wheel, it has the free flowing scroll wheel that I prefer over any other. You don’t really see this on brands other than Logitech. If you use your mouse for both work and play, this is a super important feature. In fact, it’s one of the main reasons that this mouse is on my work desk right now.
It’s a bit larger than some of the other options on this list and if you have smaller hands, I’d recommend you avoid it.
Because of its 11 programmable buttons its good for just about any genre of game. I could even see someone play Wow with it and be quite satisfied in the positioning of the programmable buttons.
Overall, it’s definitely a mouse that I use and one I’d recommend to anyone that likes this type of shape.
Corsair Vengeance M65
Corsair is one of the oldest names in the world of computers. Over the years corsair has introduced many different computer related products and the world has loved almost all of these products. One of the things that made Corsair really famous among gamers are the specially designed peripherals for gaming. Corsair has produced these amazing computer casings, keyboards, mouse, headphones and speakers over the years, and gamers have fallen in love with the company for its amazing products.
Corsair is known for producing some of the greatest gaming mice that gamers have preferred for years. In simple words, corsair has set a standard in the world of gaming. One of the latest products that we will be reviewing today is the Corsair Vengeance M65 FPS gaming mouse. This mouse is made for ultimate performance and it does exactly what it is built for. This mouse is designed for the FPS (First Person Shooting) games from each and every aspect.
FPS games are the fastest types of games and one has to be as fast as possible, both mentally and in terms of hardware. While making someone’s mind faster is not possible, their actions can be registered much faster by using the proper hardware and peripherals. Corsair Vengeance M65 is the best option for improving your aiming and movements in an FPS game.
This amazing Corsair Vengeance M65 FPS gaming mouse has 8 buttons that the users can customize according to their requirements. The mouse has a firm build and the two main buttons are really great and easy to press, even at a rapid pace. The sides are specially textured to provide extra comfort for long playing hours. The scroll wheel has a ridged rubber finish which ensures proper fast scrolling in the game.
The DPI is controlled by two small buttons that lie below the scroll wheel. These buttons are easy to press during games. There are three additional buttons on the thumb side of this mouse. Two of these buttons can be customized by the user. The third is the crosshair button that has an amazing function – activating sniper mode. In this mode, the DPI of the mouse is decreased, which in return decreases the mouse speed, which is ideal for shooters.
Another great thing about this Corsair Vengeance M65 FPS gaming mouse is that its weight can be adjusted to the needs of the gamer. There are three detachable weights which can be added or removed at any time to fit the hands of the gamer. The software of this mouse is really great and allows almost all the customizations that one could think of. Unfortunately, there is no guide to look at in order to configure the software properly.
With so many features it is among the best gaming mice. The great thing is that when you buy it you can get one of the best gaming mouse pads at a deal.
The Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum is ideal for eSports gamers just because Logitech puts great effort to make it a truly professional gaming mouse that can be wireless or wired. Performance wise, it is one of the fastest gaming mice gamers will ever use. The speed and responsiveness of the mouse are due to the Pixert PMW3366 optical sensor. This sensor is one of the industry’s finest because of the exceptional tracking accuracy, which is considered to be one of the best gaming mouse sensors. At 200-12,000 DPI, there is zero smoothing or filtering, and tuck makes the mouse responsive and enables control at any speed.
As always, I’m testing the mice with CS:GO games, and I have to say that Logitech did it again! If you want my personal opinion, the Logitech is so far the best wireless gaming mouse of 2016 for FPS games. It has amazing feel and is very responsive. I really like the scroll wheel with this whole alike design, which is actually a weight reduction measure. One last thing about the scroll wheel is that it finally has a left and right scroll-click besides the regular middle click, which is a rare sight in this segment. It wasn’t useful while I tested it on CS:GO and Day Of Defeat, but certainly in productivity.
On top of all of these features, the Logitech G900 has one of the longest battery lives you will find in a gaming mouse, with more than 30 hours on a single charge. While I was testing the mouse, the battery was done after 27 hours of use and that’s still pretty substantial, if you ask me. It is the gaming mouse with the longest battery life of gaming mice that weighs 3.9 ounces or lower. While I was writing this review, I didn’t use the mouse for over 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, the mouse was automatically went into sleep mode. When I touched the mouse again, it took me less than a half second to have the mouse fully functional and ready to use, which is pretty amazing. You can easily enjoy long nights and days without even having to charge it. You can use the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum on almost any Windows version, I tested it on Windows 7, 8.1 and 10, and it worked smoothly without any problem on all 3 systems.
Although this is one of the newest creations of Logitech, we doubt that you will find a better designed and feature-rich mouse than this one, even though it doesn’t have so many reviews by users. It is still a new mouse, but that doesn’t mean it is low quality or not good. Contrary, it is one of the best new gaming mice for that price range. With amazingly neat and functional design, great feel of usage and clicks, and one of the best sensors in the industry, the G900 Chaos Spectrum will be a serious player in the gaming mouse industry this year.
