The Logitech G302 Daedalus Prime advertises itself as a MOBA mouse, complete with on-the-fly DPI adjustments, 6 programmable buttons, and the ability to track intense clicking, but was it created with MOBA players in mind?
The G302 is smaller compared to some of the other gaming mice that Logitech have to offer, but the design is fantastic and fits into your hand nicely. Down the side, sports a long curve that is a perfect area for comfort even for bigger hands like my own. Due to the design it is made with right-handed people in mind, trying to hold it left-handed leaves your thumb in an awkward position, and without access to the side buttons.
Lightness is the G302 key to MOBA success, which makes it easy to move around and adjust. While playing FPS games it handled very well, and being lightweight makes forreally smooth, quick movements. Don’t let the size fool you though, the mouse is very compact, strong, with every click feeling sturdy and supported.
Daedalus Prime is a visually appealing piece of kit. The logo and two designs on each side slowly pulse a nice blue color. Pulsing, rate, and lighting can be adjusted with the default setting enough to match most gamers needs but the ability to change little things is a good addition for the pickier gamer.
Build wise, G302 is made up of a mix of glossy and matte materials, combined with the cool lights, makes it an impressively stylish mouse to have on your desk.
Two extra side buttons as well as another button underneath the scroll wheel are the buttons gamers can use. However, the two side button placements feel a little bit too long. I found myself favoring using hot-keys rather than the side buttons since there are only two of them. Only having two buttons puts quite a restraint on key mapping, and while they can be a useful, it was generally easier to just tap the hot-key on a keyboard.
Logitech’s G302’s middle button doesn’t really function much as another mapping spot, as it’s weird location keeps it from having much use. DPI adjustments are the spot for the button and set as the default. FPS players who focus on DPI will definitely enjoy being able to customize it and MOBA players may benefit from the change mid game in cursor speed. DPI can go up to 4000 and while it isn’t the fastest that Logitech has made, it stills feels very fast. I don’t personally adjust DPI much but it’s a neat little feature to have, and can be mapped to a different keystroke if some find it easier on a different button.
Made to handle intense clicking the G302, which it masters very well will see you for the long haul of clicks, good news MOBA gamers! Clicking is smooth and even my fastest clicking was always able to be recorded. I tested this mouse on Clicker Heroes (A Cookie-Clicker like game) and it was able to record every click that I threw at it, even going as fast as I could. Clicking takes a very small amount of pressure, but is not too sensitive as to accidentally click. For those who have any reason to do some rapid-fire clicking, MOBA or otherwise, the G302 definitely will suit your needs.
MOBA-wise I used the G302 on both DOTA 2 and Smite, and I found it to be a little more useful in Smite. With the button placement and intense clicking, it feels like a mouse that was made to be used for close combat, and it just feels right when you’re up next to the battle rather than being a camera in the sky. Nevertheless, the side buttons were not used much when I wasn’t forcing myself to, but the design and click speed make for a really comfortable gameplay.
G302’s quick, springy buttons, curvy design, and small size helps your movement and ease immensely. While it wasn’t created for it, FPS games feel smooth and easy to control with this mouse. MOBA players who need a reliable, quick, comfortable mouse will definitely find some use in the G302 and its simplicity.
At £39.99 it is a price point that requires some thinking with other mice out on the market which could offer more for the same price. However, MOBA gamers and even FPS gamers might consider the mouse because of its specifically developer design and use.
The G302 Daedalus Prime MOBA mouse has a great clicking speed, is very comfortable, visually impressive, and useful all the same. The only thing it is overly lacking is itsside buttons, they don’t have much use because the awkward placement, and too often is it easier to use a hotkey because of the placement of the side buttons. Get use to the side buttons though and the mouse should serve you well through all your clicks and quick reflexes.
Overall, the mouse is above average and has a lot going for it. It could be a little pricey for some for what it’s offering, and against competitors operating at lower price points, it may be a little too much. However, if you ever have the chance to try out, or are interested in buying the G302, I’d recommend giving it a shot and seeing how you feel about it.
