A mouse optimised for First Person Shooter games needs to be light, ergonomic, have a great sensor to track distances, and have a high polling rate to translate your reflexes into the game accurately. In FPS games where things like precise aiming, fast movement and flickability are necessary, your mouse needs to feel like an extension of your hand, to truly exhibit your skill and mastery. Here are some great options that try to fulfil these requirements. 

Logitech G102 Prodigy Optical Gaming Mouse

Long hailed as the gold standard for budget gaming, the Logitech G102 is a great little mouse that is incredibly fast and precise. Featuring a revolutionary Mercury sensor that goes up to 10,000 DPI and a 1000 Hz polling rate, the G102 tracks every movement you make accurately. Tipping the scales at roughly 85 grams, it’s light enough to provide fatigue-free gaming for extended periods. The low weight will also improve your ability to flick it for those fast shots. It comes with 4 programmable buttons for you to assign commands of your choice to, as well as RGB lighting that is extensively customisable. While some units are known to develop a double-clicking issue after a period of use, Logitech’s solid two-year warranty has you covered, taking care of any defects that might arise. 

Corsair Harpoon Pro RGB

The Harpoon Pro RGB is a solidly built mouse from Corsair that is designed to withstand all the rigors of extended gaming sessions. The high quality plastic construction makes it durable while still keeping it light enough at just 85g. The PMW3327 sensor with upto 12,000 DPI of tracking performs admirably in all genres of games while the contoured sides with a grippy texture makes sure that you’re always in control. Two zone customisable RGB lighting rounds off the package to make the Corsair Harpoon Pro RGB a worthwhile gaming companion. The mouse comes with a two year warranty so that if anything does go wrong, you can be sure of getting it resolved.

Redragon Cobra M711 Wired 10,000 DPI Gaming Mouse 

Ergonomics is the name of the game and the Redragon Cobra M711 delivers comfort in spades. With a well-contoured shape, the Cobra M711 lets you rest your fingers comfortably around it to reduce strain on your muscles. The premium textured rubber also helps with the grip on the mouse, while the Pixart 3360 sensor delivers 10,000 DPI with up to a 1000Hz polling rate. Unlike the mice showcased so far, the Cobra M711 sports 9 buttons, 7 of which are customisable. It rounds off its list of features with customisable RGB, as well as a dedicated DPI switch, making the Redragon Cobra M711 a solid choice that is a delight to hold. 

Dragonwar ELE-G9 Thor BlueTrack Gaming Mouse

If you are a person with bigger hands, chances are you’ve been frustrated with mice that seem puny in your palm, especially when it comes to choices in the budget segment. Worry not, for the Dragonwar ELE-G9 Thor is a mouse that is proportioned better for you. Featuring a large enclosure with well-shaped sides, the G9 Thor is a mouse that has the heft you need. It has an interesting design with cutouts for ambient light, a tough braided cable and DPI switch, not to mention three customizable buttons. What’s more, you get a mouse mat in the box and a yearlong warranty, making the Dragonwar G9 Thor a lot of mouse for relatively not a lot of money!

Lenovo Legion M300 RGB Gaming Mouse 

The Lenovo Legion M300 is a svelte looking mouse that is sure to please anyone with an eye for symmetry. And by being symmetrical it can satisfy the needs of the often ignored left-handed people who make up about 10 percent of the population. It is not just about looks though, as the Legion M300 is also chock full of features. A total of 8 programmable buttons lets you bind your favourite keys and macros to your mouse itself so that you can access it quicker while the 1000 Hz polling rate makes sure that even the minute movements translate on-screen in realtime. The 8000 DPI sensor tracks well and you can switch the DPI value on the go to preset values with the onboard quick switch button. Textured soft sides and a striking, RGB customisable logo make for an ergonomic, as well as attractive package. 

Razer DeathAdder Essential 

The Razer DeathAdder and its variants have been an iconic mainstay in competitive gaming for more than a decade thanks to their widely appreciated ergonomic shape. The Razer DeathAdder Essential is a continuation of that pedigree, with small adjustments to make it more appealing to the masses. Razer also states that they’ve tweaked the manufacturing process to make the DeathAdder Essential more durable and reliable than its predecessors. There are five ‘hyper-responsive’ buttons on the sleek, contoured body that can be remapped via Razer’s software to save you precious seconds in the middle of a clutch match. The 6400 DPI sensor is sure to satisfy all your precise tracking needs while the soft touch finish on the top makes sure that your palms don’t feel any friction. If you need a comfortable, tried and proven design, the Razer DeathAdder Essential could very well be your next mouse.
