Building a gaming gear kit requires a lot of peripherals these days, from the perfect chair to headphone support and even a collection or two. But more importantly, these are the things that affect your gaming experience. It’s good to think about computer parts like monitors, GPUs, and of course the mouse you use.

It may not be necessary to buy a high-end mouse for RPG fans or the like. Maybe you are playing an MMORPG or FPS shooter and need a mouse with macro buttons. In such cases, to determine the best mouse for gaming, consider:

  • Available DPI settings
  • Programmable macro buttons
  • Optical and laser mice
  • Size, shape and direction

RGB Mice are nice to the eye, but they don’t really affect how you experience a video game. In this article, we decided to focus on functionality rather than visuals. Here are the best gaming mice:

10) Logitech G502 Lightspeed

  • CPI: 16. 000
  • Sensor: Logitech Hero 16K (optical)
  • Programmable buttons: 11
  • Ergonomics: Right hand
  • Interface: USB Type-A
  • Price range: 1156₺-1320₺

A big factor in choosing a gaming mouse is its ergonomics. When holding your mouse, it can be claw-shaped, fingertip or palm grip. Regardless, the Logitech G502 Lightspeed is a mouse for any grip. The abnormally high cost of the mouse can be ignored with its features including adjustable weights for customization, loads of programmable buttons and more.

Ideal for first-person shooters, the cable doesn’t get in the way, the tracking option and overall shape are familiar and comfortable. The aggressive styling comes with the luxury-feeling materials it should be (considering the price). A budget alternative within the same brand, Logitech G203 is Lightsync and the price is around 179₺-277₺.

9) HyperX Pulsefire Darts

  • DPI: 16. 000
  • Sensor: PixArt PMW3389 sensor (optical)
  • Programmable buttons: 6
  • Ergonomics: Right hand
  • Interface: USB and 2.4 GHz RF connection with Qi charging support
  • Price range: 796₺-1109₺

The simplicity of the HyperX Pulsefire Dart is hard to beat. It has a classic silhouette with modern performance features up to Qi charging and up to 16,000 DPI. The padded side padding is perfect for multiple grip types, although unfortunately there is no left-handed option.

The wireless option, on the other hand, has an impressive battery life. Something that any gamer who prefers a wireless peripheral would want. It has good weight, although it doesn’t feel heavy, but it doesn’t have a braided cord. Still, the $796-1109 price tag puts it right in the middle of the gaming mouse price range, making it a bargain for its performance.

8) Cooler Master MM720

  • DPI: 16,000 CPI (local) – 32,000 (with software)
  • Sensor: PixArt PMW3389 (optical)
  • Programmable buttons: 6
  • Ergonomics: Right hand
  • Interface: USB Type-A cable
  • Price range: 490₺-500₺

If you’re looking for something that combines performance, unique design and lightweight hardware, this is the more affordable option. It even includes a ring finger rest that may work for certain mouse grip types.

The weight of this mouse is bulky compared to many gaming mice, and that’s the first thing that catches your eye. The sensor on it is also very sensitive. In addition, with its design, it is in the least appealing position on our list.

7) Razer Deathadder Pro V2

  • CPI: 20.000
  • Sensor:Razer Focus+
  • Programmable buttons: 8
  • Ergonomics: Right hand
  • Interface: USB Type-A
  • Price range: 969₺-1278₺

With V2, Razer has increased performance and tweaked the way the optical sensor works. If you’ve used these models in the past, you know that the middle mouse button, left click button, or anything else suddenly starts to have problems after a while.

The updated optical sensor aims to solve these long-term issues, and so far people seem to be enjoying it. There is also a mini version. The shape and button placements lend themselves more to palm grip users. As a bonus, the Rosewill Neon M60 is great for gamers on a tight budget, as it mimics the Deathadder design while providing RGB and solid performance at the same time.

6) Steelseries Sensei 310

  • DPI: 12.000
  • Sensor: SteelSeries TrueMove3 (optical)
  • Programmable buttons: 8
  • Ergonomics: Versatile
  • Interface: USB Type-A
  • Price: 359₺ – 499₺

Steelseries Sensei 310, one of the few gaming mice that doesn’t have constraints for right-handers only, does not skimp on design. It has relatively “low” DPI compared to modern standards.

Steelseries has revamped its classic design and equipped it with a fantastic sensor, lightweight frame and grippy materials. The software is a tough spot for many, but if you’re more on the “casual” side of the game and/or have small hands, this is a solid option for you.

5) Corsair Scimitar RGB Elite

  • CPI: 18,000
  • Sensor: PixArt PMW3391 (optical)
  • Programmable buttons: 12
  • Ergonomics: Right hand
  • Interface: USB Type-A
  • Price range: 547₺-986₺

If you’re looking for programmable button supremacy, this gaming mouse is for you. The Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB provides the same Razer precision with 12 keys plus a comfortable grip for any grip. Frankly, it’s best for hardcore MMO gamers.

The mouse is also very stable, with its weight centered in the middle for a solid and well-constructed feel. However, let us warn you that this stability means a stiff cable and a heavy mouse.

4) Glorious Model D

  • DPI: 12.000
  • Sensor: PixArt PMW3360 (optical)
  • Programmable buttons: 6
  • Ergonomics: Versatile
  • Interface: USB Type-A
  • Price range: 429₺-539₺

One of the best lightweight gaming mice available in 2021 and works better for small hands than its peer Model O. For those who share their playground with others, this mouse is also quieter and still provides solid click response and tracking.

You get incredibly solid performance, long-lasting comfort, and stylish design at the price point. The only downside is the Zeus logo on all Glorious gaming mice.

3) Razer Basilisk V2

  • DPI: 20.000
  • Sensor: Razer Focus+
  • Programmable buttons: 11
  • Ergonomics: Right hand
  • Interface:USB Type-A
  • Price range: 509₺-769₺

A mouse for MLG type gamers who want to avoid wrong clicks and have tons of commands on their fingers. Some people raise their eyebrows at the high price tag for a wired mouse, but the hardware in the Basilisk V2 makes up for the cost.

The more traditional shape can make it more accessible for some types of mouse grips compared to the Deathadder V2. It’s also easy to see the improvements Razer has made from the first release, as this mouse is impressive and consistent to track.

2) Roccat Kone Pro

  • DPI: 19.000
  • Sensor: Roccat Owl-Eye (optical)
  • Programmable buttons: 8
  • Ergonomics: Right hand
  • Interface: USB Type-A
  • Price range:60$-130$

Roccat is not a name that many players will be familiar with, apart from those who watch eSports. But when it comes to gaming peripherals and hardware, the brand is essentially royalty. The Kone Pro is no exception to this tradition.

The design is deceptively simple and elegant, with understated RGB lighting and gripping materials. Extremely lightweight while still delivering superior performance with Titan Switches and Owl-Eye sensor. Aside from the high price, one of the few downsides is that the cable feels a bit fragile compared to some competitors.

1) Corsair Ironclaw RGB

  • Max DPI:000
  • Sensor: Pixart PMW3391 (optical)
  • Programmable buttons: 5 – 7
  • Ergonomics: Right hand
  • Interface: USB Type-A or Bluetooth
  • Price: 299₺-547₺

The mouse comes both wireless and wired, but its main feature is that it’s great for people with large hands or palm grips. Performance figures are great for novice and expert mouse users, only professional gamers really notice any difference in performance versus competitors. Be warned though: it doesn’t support customizable weights.

But it’s definitely not good for those who use fingertip or claw grips. The price is worth the investment, but a quick note: Corsair mice can fall victim to the same phenomenon that Deathadder mice do. But still, the price is pretty reasonable for the performance you’ll get from this gaming mouse.
