It’s not an exaggeration to say that your gaming mouse is one of the most underrated pieces of PC gaming hardware. The best gaming mouse is one that feels the best in your hand while still providing the speed and accuracy you need to compete online. Once you find the perfect one, it’ll stay with you for years.
The theme for this year’s nominees is speed. Each mouse has an excellent sensor to support even the most aggressive and frantic mouse swipes. Whether you’re going for ergonomics, performance, or price, each gaming mouse on this list can handle whatever competitive game you throw at it, whether it be a shooter or a MOBA.
Of course, if you’re trying to rid your life of pesky cables, the Razer Deathadder V3 Pro and the SteelSeries Prime Pro are superb wireless options with no-nonsense designs. The Logitech G502 X is the best there is when it comes down to sheer ergonomics. But only one can be crowned the best gaming mouse of 2022.
