A time old question for gamers, what is the best mouse for me to use and improve my game? With CS:GO your set up can be the difference between staying alive and dying, to improve those chances we have listed what we believe are 10 mice in now order that are good enough to help you with your in-game skills.
The Corsair M65 Pro
The Corsair M65 Pro scored pretty well in our review, with its dynamic weight system and ergonomic right handed grip, it is very comfortable to use with minimal extras. With on-the-fly DPI settings and a “sniper button” for those that like having a DPI clutch, the M65 Pro is a great mouse at an affordable price.
In CS:GO a DPI clutch might be the advantage you need. If your play style is macro heavy and you feel a clutch built into a mouse would suit you, the Corsair M65 pro might give you the edge you’re looking for.
Roccat make a great range of affordable gaming mice, but for an ambidextrous gaming mouse for less than £50, it’s very hard to beat the Kiro. With interchangeable side panels which can either have buttons or grip and the standard on-the-fly DPI button, the Kiro really can rub shoulders with the best of them.
The Roccat Kiro is great for any CS players who are looking to take the game to a more serious level. With a professional finish for a minimal price, as an entry level mouse this could take you from a beginner to a winner.
The Razer Mamba is another ambidextrous mouse with a DPI sensor that can go as high as 16,000dpi. A very comfortable mouse and with great wireless connectivity, the Mamba is the best wireless option from Razer’s large range of peripherals.
Not everyone likes using a bungee to keep their cable out of the way, and cables can be the cause of one too many deaths in CS:GO. The Mamba is a great option for gamers who find a snagging cable causes more deaths than the enemy team.
SteelSeries Sensei (all of them!)
SteelSeries’ Sensei range is probably one of the longest running gaming mice range on our list, but it was already a fantastic mouse back when it was released and it has really stood the test of time. There are plenty of versions available to the avid CS:GO fan including the original, the RAW and the Sensei wireless for those gamers who hate getting their wire caught. Starting from as little as £60, the Sensei range has something for every CS:GO would-be pro.
The Sensei series have been staples in the CS scene since the days of CS:Source. They have grown up and developed alongside the game and would be perfect in any CS:GO player’s arsenal of peripherals.
SteelSeries Rival (all of them!)
The Rival is basically the successor to the long-running Sensei range and has an entire range of mice to itself. From the affordable Rival 100 to the top end Rival 700, the Rival range has a mouse for all wallet sizes. For the CS:GO enthusiast there are also e-Sports teams with their own versions of the Rival too so you can show your team support in game and out.
The Rival series has something for everyone. If you’re a beginner wanting to improve or someone of good skill wanting to become the best, the rival series really can cater to all CS:GO players.
Logitech G303 Daedalus Apex
A very sleek and clean mouse from the guys at Logitech. The G303 is an ambidextrous mouse for the claw grippers out there. It may be small, but it packs a punch with a maximum of 12,000dpi and on-the-fly DPI switching, the G303 falls just shy of £60 and is definitely one of the best mid-range gaming mice out there for CS:GO.
The G303 has one of the best sensors on the market. For precision gameplay helping you make those shots that really matter, the G303 will be there and won’t let you down.
This legendary mouse disappeared for nearly 8 years and finally rose again like the phoenix in late 2015 to a very hyped fan base. With a gorgeous and comfortable ambidextrous design and reinvigorated with Razer’s Chroma lighting system, the Diamondback is comfortable, attractive and very easy to use.
The Diamondback is sleek, lightweight and comfortable. Due to its ambidextrous design it could be a part of any CS:GO gamers setup.
Logitech G502 Proteus Core
The G502 is a true professional grade gaming mouse, once the flag ship of Logitech’s gaming mice; it is ergonomic, has a tuneable weight system, lots of programmable buttons, and a very high-end sensor to help with tracking. One of its weirder features is the insanely fast scroll wheel option, but for a CS:GO mouse, there are few gaming mice that can compete with it.
Logitech mice are built with science in mind and the G502 is no different. With professional grade accuracy and comfort all in one great mouse.
What can we say that hasn’t been said a thousand times about the deathadder? It has topped lists for almost its entire life and has been around longer than most of the modern popular FPS games. Extremely ergonomic, great sensor, minimalistic design. The mouse was designed for the FPS gamer, which means it more than deserves a spot in our CS:GO mouse list.
The Deathadder is an FPS mouse through and through. Another old timer which has grown up alongside CS:GO and earlier renditions of the game, the Deathadder has accompanied more than one pro player to the finals of majors and could help take you there too.
Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum
Now this final entry we’ve not tested, but we’ve heard very good things about it. Logitech’s newest flag ship mouse is not only ambidextrous, but it is also wireless. Wireless has always been a sore subject for PC gamers, but the technology has come a long way over the last few years. The battery life lasts an entire tournament weekend according to Logitech and the response time rivals the Deathadder. We’re dying to get our hands on this and as soon as we do, we’ll tell you guys all about it.
Some are calling this the best gaming mouse money can buy. A wireless mouse that can outperform wired mice is something that every FPS gamer should look up and take note of. If the rumour are true, then this could be the new mouse of the future pros.
