These are the gaming mice that are most used by professionals and are available for purchase on sale
Whenever we create our buying guides, we always do so by joining an objective linegiven by the properties of the items we are listing with a subjective opinion, about the sense of use that these peripheral devices, accessories and devices convey to us. Because of this, these guides roughly reflect our opinion on the article we are dealing with.
However, like our readers, we are simple gamblers with more or less skills, better or worse budgets, and more or less inclination to competition; in our environment there are real professionals, Players who have made their skills their own way of life and who, like us, need their peripherals to play. With the aim of learning from the experiences of these types of gamers and offering buying advice a little different than what we typically do, we wanted to make a list of some of the most common choices these professional gamers have to offer.
The first peripheral we’ll look at in this new guide is, how could it be otherwise, the Desktop mouse; the epitome of the modern competitive edge, with the PC being the benchmark platform for building this type of community. So without further ado, let’s start this text by seeing what are the favorite mice of professional gamers with the intention of understanding why they choose them.
The route marked by professionals
To check what the usual choice of professional gamers is, we have selected a number of titles that we believe represent the current state of the competitive scene in the medium, that desktop rodents use as their main input and that also have a registry or database, on the make a meaningful list. Unfortunately, in order to meet all these requirements, we have to place ourselves almost entirely in the genre of competitive shooters, but we are confident that the list can become representative. The following titles were chosen:
- League of Legends.
- Fourteen days.
- Counter Strike Global Offensive.
The data on the peripherals of the professionals was obtained from databases such as Prosettings for competition shooters, Oh My Gear for the MOBA from Riot Games and reinforced with an individual search to check their currency, as many of these players eagerly share their configuration. The result is the table below, in which we have listed the twelve mice that are most often chosen by professional gamers.
The appearance of several Logitech models is striking, the Swedish brand prides itself on making some of the most advanced mice on the market, which is reflected in the preference of a large segment of the professional gamer population, although this preference is also possible due to the brand’s numerous sponsorships be due. Even if this is the case, it should be noted that the Logitech G Pro It is by far the mouse that is chosen most often by professional gamers.
It’s also interesting to see how preferences in terms of mice, form factors, and specific models change depending on the title.
Outside of League of Legends we hardly see G502 As a general choice, if this model is among the brand’s bestsellers, we suspect it is due to the heavy weight of this mouse. Mice with a specific story within a specific title, like that of Zowie, or models like that Vaxee Zygen NP They appear very heavily in titles like CS: GO, both with an ergonomic form factor; something, that collides head-on with what we see in Fortnite players where symmetry and reduced weight are the preferred choices. In any case, if we look at the gross numbers in our dedicated table, the models most often chosen by professional gamers will be the ones we will see in more detail below.
Logitech G Pro Wireless
The professional’s favorite mouse
Every competition has a winner, and while everyone is a winner on this list, the Logitech G Pro Wireless even tops it as the most popular desktop mouse among the masses of professional gamers on the scene today. Either because of its virtues or simply because of team sponsorship, more than 200 “professionals” of the total sample that we drew for our calculations chose the Logitech model as their main mouse, which stands out as the only model that is conspicuously present in the entire sample in each of the selected titles.
If you look at the specifications of the mouse, it’s a wireless model with a symmetrical form factor that is slightly reminiscent of Logitech’s own G903 in terms of ergonomics, not style. It has a HERO 25K sensor, one of the most powerful from the Swedish brand, and it weighs around 80g, which is quite a feat in the wireless market at the time of its introduction, but isn’t that surprising right now. Perhaps that is the reason why some professionals opt for the Logitech G Pro X Superlight instead of the normal edition, a model that is less complete in terms of features, but much lighter.
As well as EC2-B
The absolute king of CS: GO
CS: GO is a game that grew out of the basis of its predecessor, CS. So it’s also a title where many of its players, who are already veterans of the competitive scene in the genre, are used to certain peripherals; maybe that’s why it’s not surprising that Zowie EC series It is without a doubt the most prevalent in the Valve Shooter competitive scene as both the EC1 and EC2 in their different versions spent much of the lifespan of the title fight.
Zowie’s mouse is extremely simple in its proposal; An ergonomic model for right-handers, with a solid sensor and a clear preference for palm and claw grips, the two most common in archery. Of all available models, the Zowie EC2-B seems to be the most popular, a model with a slightly reduced size, a weight of around 90 g in the hand and with the now legendary PMW 3360 as the brain of the mouse; This model, because it is the most popular, is the one that we are going to list now.
FinalMouse Air58 Ninja
Victory Royale for the most used mouse in Fortnite
The case of the FinalMouse is curious if we look at the numbers. Several models of the brand, like the Ultralight 2, are represented in different titles, but none with the dominance that the FinalMouse Air58 Ninja in the competitive shooter from Epic Games. This model is Fortnite gamers’ favorite if we ignore the supremacy of the G Pro Wireless.
The main reason for its popularity in our eyes, besides the fact that the mouse was developed along with the advice of Ninja, the popular Fortnite streamer, is its extreme lightness, around 58 grams in total, which makes it one of the lightest mice on the market the market use a high performance sensor like the PMW 3360 that this model uses. Its main problem is without a doubt its availability; as this mouse can only be obtained X times when FinalMouse produces a new batch. In our opinion, a possible replacement could be the Glorious Model O.
Steelseries Sensei Ten
One of the most popular among League of Legends pros
One of the most iconic SteelSeries mice is the original Sensei, a model that defined the form factor of the entire line of desktop mice that now bear his name. Whether through sponsorship or long-term presence, this model seems to be one of the most popular Riot Games MOBA players; Among all the versions available, we decided to highlight the Sensei Ten as one of the newest and easiest to find versions.
This model is characterized by its symmetrical form factor and loose profile that openly favors claw and palm grips. It has a brand-licensed TrueMove Pro sensor and is relatively light for its size, a combination of features that make this mouse shine in many environments, possibly what makes it so popular.
Razer DeathAdder V2
A model that is present in all categories
There is little to be said about the DeathAdder that is not already known about the DeathAdder, a mouse with a hugely well-known form factor that has changed mainly internally over the years; perhaps the reason why at least one of the variants of this model is present in all the games that we have discussed in this text. Of all of them, the most popular model is the DeathAdder Elite, although now they are from the DeathAdder V2; the model we will recommend if any of our readers want to get hold of this mouse.
In terms of properties, it is an ergonomic mouse with a clear preference for palm and claw grips, which is easy to check due to its height and angular shape. The sensor used by the V2 model, Razer’s Focus +, is the most advanced sensor from the Tri-headed Viper company.
Logitech G703 Lightspeed
The prince of competition shooters
To wrap up this list, we have another Logitech model, specifically the model G703 speed of light. .
