Over the last few years, the gaming industry has evolved a lot. Numerous brands are launching new and improved gaming mouses. However, don’t just get lost in the wave of new mouses. We’ve got your back. In this article, we are not only going to discuss about the best mouses you can buy right now but also the mouses that a budget gamer can afford. Without wasting time, let’s get started!

Glorious Model O

Although Glorious is a newcomer to the gaming industry, they are trying hard to capture the market. The Glorious Model O comes with a honeycomb design that is very comfortable for gaming. This mouse is really good, especially for FPS games. You can hit targets with flicks easily because of its 68 grams weight.

The mouse doesn’t come with a braided cable. However, the cable is quite flexible. Moreover, the mouse comes with PixArt 3360, Omron switches, and RGB lighting. You can customize all the settings using the software provided by Glorious. Be a right-handed or a left-handed user, this mouse will suit you well.

SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless

Aerox 3 is a wireless gaming mouse made by SteelSeries. The weight of the mouse is 66 grams. Quite surprising for a wireless gaming mouse! Isn’t it? Well, Aerox 3 Wireless comes with TrueMove Air optical sensor and a “Quantum 2.0” 2.4 GHz wireless connection. Don’t worry about the cable. It’s quite flexible.

You will get around 80 hours of battery life while using the highest settings. Therefore, you can boost the battery life by disabling RGB and heading to Bluetooth instead of a 2.4GHz low-latency connection. While discussing battery life, let me tell you that you can charge the mouse with any USB-C fast charging cable that you use on your smartphone or any other device.

Asus ROG Pugio 2

Previously, we knew that wireless gaming mice can’t stand in front of wired mice due to high-latency issue. However, Asus showed us the path by launching Pugio 2, one of the best gaming mouses available in the market. The mouse packs amazing hardware including both a 2.4GHz wireless connection and Bluetooth.

Not only that but also the design of the mouse is superb. The grip is quite good if you play a lot of FPS games. This 102 grams mouse has Omron switches along with PixArt 3335 sensor. What else? You can customize the mouse. Yes! You can remove the ROG logo located on the backside and also create your own RGB-illuminated drawing.

SteelSeries Rival 3

SteelSeries launched Rival 3 for budget gamers. If you have a small or medium hand and you don’t want to spend too much on a gaming mouse, then Rival 3 is for you. The mouse comes with a very light plastic body along with a TrueMove Core sensor. This mouse also has RGB lighting. Although the left-side buttons are quite slim, overall the mouse is really great for budget gamers all over the world.

Logitech G Pro Wireless

Looking for the best wireless gaming mouse? Go for Logitech G Pro Wireless. While it was being tested, Logitech G Pro Wireless was found with the same latency that a wired gaming mouse has.

The mouse weighs 80 grams. The power-efficient optical sensor saves a lot of energy making the battery life longer. The design is great, the buttons are clicky and very responsive. There is nothing more to say about that mouse. You will become speechless once you use this mouse. Numerous pro-gamers and streamers use that mouse.

Logitech G502

Logitech G502 is very famous for its ergonomic design. The mouse has whooping 11 buttons along with an infinite scroll wheel. It has the legendary Logitech Hero Optical sensor that is really fast and reliable. Logitech also launched a new wireless version of G502. You can add more weights to the mouse if you need. That’s why it’s not only good for gaming but also for productivity. Both the wired and wireless versions of G502 are great.

Razer DeathAdder V2

Razer DeathAdder V2 is one of the most famous gaming mouses. All of the mouse buttons have optical switches to reduce delay. It also prevents you from double click issues. I won’t recommend this mouse to games that have small hands. If you have a medium or large hand, go for it.
