The 3 Best Mice For Gaming (Mmo, Fps, Rts)

  • We follow our post series dedicated to peripherals related to gaming, those products that will help you to make your gaming experience perfect. And we have to comment on which are the best mice for gaming.

     

    Any mouse for gaming has to offer you reliable connectivity, a soft and sensitive touch, and basic click and scroll functions, but it should also have the following attributes:

     

    • High-quality sensor:  we can find LED and laser sensors. Laser sensors offer much better tracking. It is also possible to combine the best of both worlds, with a mouse that uses two sensors, one of each type. Important to choose a mat that fits well to each of the mice. With the best opticians use cloth or rubber mats and with the laser mice better to use mats that are rigid and in black colors.
    • Comfort and personalization: they have to be comfortable, enough to play for hours and customizable with the buttons and enough wheels to access the different features of the game.
    • That allows adjusting the DPI (Points per inch: the number of points that a mouse can recognize in a certain distance), that will depend on the size of the screen and the sensitivity of the pointer in the game. Mice with high DPI values, for example, 6000 DPI, are suitable for playing on large monitors over 24 inches. Many allow you to adjust this parameter while playing.
    • The mice designed for playing real-time strategy (RTS) and MMO are often equipped with a number of programmable buttons. Under the thumb, these mice offer 6 to 12 buttons that can be used as numeric keys or can be programmed to run longer commands.
    • Many gaming mice can also be physically customized as they have removable weights to adjust the total weight. Others allow you to change the balance center, adjust the height or tilt of the palm rest.
    • Response speed indicated in  Hz: the highest we will be able to find is 1000Hz. It would be interesting to leave it to the maximum.

     

    How can we find the best mouse for gaming?

     

    Finding the best mouse for gaming will depend on your preferred style of play: whether you play First Person Shooter (FPS) or Strategy (RTS) or Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) games.

     

    If you like the former you will need a high DPI, if you like the latter you can stay with DPI means. You also have to keep in mind if you are going to use certain mouse functions: you do not have to spend buying the best mouse in the market if you are not going to use all its functions.
