Best gaming mouse for FPS 2022
Gaming mice are important for all types of PC games, but for first-person shooters they are even more so. This is because a comfortable mouse with a quality sensor and responsive switches can mean the difference between winning or losing in a tense gunfight. Here are our picks for the best FPS gaming mouse we recommend if you want to go into FPS games with an edge.
With its smooth, sleek frame, durable build, excellent optical sensor quality, programmable buttons, RGB lighting, and balanced price, the Razer DeathAdder Elite is the overall best mouse you can get for shooter games.
If you're into playing shooters competitively, then the Zowie EC1-A is right up your alley. It's got a phenomenal optical sensor that makes precise aiming a breeze, an ergonomically-sound design, a tough-as-nails chassis, and a clean, no-nonsense aesthetic.
While the Logitech G Pro isn't as great as the first two mice on this list, it still has a great sensor and comfortable design in its own right. When you add on that it costs less, too, it becomes clear why the Logitech G Pro is a fantastic mid-range pick.
The SteelSeries Rival 600 is for the shooter player who wants to show off, as it features an array of snazzy RGB lighting as well an excellent sensor and lift-off distance.
While the SteelSeries Rival 110 is by far the lowest-quality wired mouse on this list, it's also by far one of the least expensive, too. It isn't bad by any means, either, as it offers solid performance across the board.
The Logitech MX Master is a top-of-the-line wireless mouse with a high-quality sensor, a durable build, and a unique thumb wheel on the side that you can utilize for custom functions. If you want to dominate the battlefield without a wired connection, this is your mouse.
