Best Gaming Mice - The Elite List

By Edward Chester. Posted

Finding the perfect gaming mouse can be tricky, as so much comes down to what shape of mouse you like. However, there are some universal truths, such as responsive, well-place buttons, excellent movement tracking from the sensor and a good selection of features.

Across the dozens of mice we've tested, these are the ones we recommend. Whether you're after something simple and lightweight or packed with features, there's something here for you.


Logitech G Pro X Superlight - Best all round gaming mouse

Price: £130 | Supplier: Argos.co.uk

Logitech G Pro X Superlight

With its simple ambidextrous shape (though not ambidextrous side buttons) and incredibly low weight, the Logitech G Pro X Superlight is an incredible comfortable mouse that's superb for fast-paced gaming. Add in that it's wireless and has superb tracking performance and great button response and you have the ultimate all-rounder. If you want much the same but with a left-handed option, the older Logitech G Pro Wireless is excellent too - it's a travesty Logitech dropped the extra buttons. Both are in many ways overpriced for the basic features they offer (this model doesn't even have any RGB) but because they're otherwise so good, they still make the top of our list.

Corsair M55 RGB Pro - Best budget gaming mouse

Price: £30 | Supplier: currys.co.uk

Corsair M55 RGB Pro

For just £30, the Corsair M55 RGB Pro offers excellent overall tracking performance in a design that's ambidextrous and lightweight. It lacks the features of more expensive mice but is a great entry level option.

Razer Viper 8K - Best ambidextrous gaming mouse

Price: £80 | Supplier: currys.co.uk

Razer Viper 8K

For left-handed buyers, an ambidextrous mouse is often the only option, and the Razer Viper 8K (and even the non 8K version) is the best out there. Its simple shape fits all manner of hand sizes and grip styles while its side button layout means they're easy to reach with your thumb but aren't hit accidentally with your little and ring fingers. Performance is also fantastic, and it's a light mouse too. The Razer Viper Ultimate is a superb wireless version as well.

Roccat Burst Pro - Best ultra lightweight mouse

Price: £50 | Supplier: game.co.uk

Roccat Burst Pro

The ultra lightweight mouse market has exploded recently with fantastic options from Glorious PC Gaming Race, Razer and more. However, one of the mose affordable yet affective is the Roccat Burst Pro. It weighs just 68g but packs in a great sensor and 100-million click optical swithces. All that and its lightweight hexagonal mesh structure isn't open to the elements like on some rivals.

SteelSeries Rival 600 - Best right-handed mouse

Price: £61 | Supplier: Argos.co.uk

SteelSeries Rival 600

With its highly adjustable weight system, class-leading dual-sensor performance, eight-zone RGB lighting and extra buttons, the SteelSeries Rival 600 offers exceptional value. It's also a very comfortable right-handed mouse. It's not the lightest around but is fantastic in every other way.

Razer Deathadder V2 Pro - Best right-handed wireless gaming mouse

Price: £120 | Supplier: Amazon.co.uk

Razer Deathadder V2 Pro

While the Razer Viper Ultimate and Logitech G Pro X Superlight are your best wireless options if you're either left-handed or prefer an ambidextrous-style shape and very light weight, the Razer Deathadder V2 Pro is the ultimate right-handers only option. Its large but still reasonably light (88g) shape nestles so comfortably underhand, making it particularly good for palm grip but still usable for fingertip grip for those with larger hands. Its simple button layout and fantastic performance seal the deal.

Razer Naga X - Best MMO mouse

Price: £80 | Supplier: Razer.com

Razer Naga X

MMO mice are all about adding extra buttons for quickly firing off the many macros required for such games, and the Naga X packs in a 3x4 grid of extra buttons. The button positions, overall mouse shape and excellent performance all add up to it being the best option if a many-buttoned mouse if required.
