Wireless gaming mice have improved noticeably over the past years, with manufacturers finding new ways to reduce latency and increase reliability using wireless technology. Many gaming mice are now wireless and offer amazing performance for even the most competitive gamers. That said, not all wireless connections are created equal, and because of the limitations of Bluetooth technology, we typically don't recommend a Bluetooth connection for gaming, meaning you won't find any 'best Bluetooth gaming mouse' categories on this list. That said, how the mouse feels in your hand is one of the most important factors when choosing a gaming mouse. But, lift-off distance, button placement, and overall weight are big factors for FPS gamers, while having access to lots of buttons is important if you primarily play MMOs or MOBAs.

We've tested over 240 mice, and below are our recommendations for the best wireless gaming mouse. See our picks for the best lightweight mice, the best mice for MMOs, the best cheap gaming mice, and the best gaming mice.


  1. Best Wireless Gaming Mouse For FPS: Razer Viper Ultimate

    The best wireless gaming mouse for FPS games we've tested is the Razer Viper Ultimate. This lightweight, ambidextrous model is an excellent choice whether you're left- or right-handed. You can use it wirelessly using the USB receiver you can plug into the charging cradle, which acts as a signal extender, or directly into your computer.

    FPS gamers will appreciate its very low click latency, making it feel very fast and responsive when making that critical headshot. It has a consistent sensor, so your set CPI will feel accurate, which is important if you're used to specific settings. It has a pair of buttons on each side, and you can assign a Hypershift button to enable a second layer of commands for even more controls.

    Unfortunately, its low profile is uncomfortable with a palm or claw grip if you have larger hands, while small hands might struggle to control it with a fingertip grip. That said, gamers with medium to extra-large hands will have no problem using it with a fingertip grip. Thanks to its onboard memory, you can save your settings on a PC and carry them across devices if needed. Overall, it's an excellent choice for FPS gamers and one of the best gaming mice we've tested.

  2. Cheaper Alternative: Logitech G703 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse with HERO Sensor

    If you want to save some money but still want something that performs well, the Logitech G703 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse with HERO Sensor might be the perfect choice for you. While it's much heavier than the Razer Viper Ultimate and is only suitable for right-handed people, its regular price is cheaper than the Razer. Also, its higher back is more comfortable for a palm or claw grip if you have large or extra-large hands. While it doesn't have as many customizable buttons, its click latency is just as low, so both models feel equally responsive.

    If you don't mind spending the extra money on a lighter, ambidextrous mouse, get the Razer; however, if you're right-handed and want to save some money, go with the Logitech.

    If you love ultra-light mice, the best wireless gaming mouse that we've tested is the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT. It's incredibly lightweight, coming in at only 59g, which is especially shocking considering it has a solid outer shell and a rechargeable battery. Its light weight paired with its smooth-gliding feet makes it easy to fling around.

    It has a symmetrical shape, making it comfortable for both left- and right- hands, but there are buttons on the left side only. That said, you can reprogram all buttons using the G HUB software, and you can even set a G-shift button that enables a second layer of controls. Also, whether you're tracking an enemy or making split-second shots, everything should feel quick and responsive thanks to the very low click latency.

    Unfortunately, it's on the more expensive side, which might not fit into everyone's budget. Also, it doesn't have RGB lighting, which helps it be much lighter, but this might be disappointing for you if you like to match all your peripherals' lighting together. Note that it uses the more dated micro-USB cable instead of a USB-C cable. That said, it's an excellent option if you want a mouse that doesn't sacrifice performance for a lightweight option, and it's among the best mice we've tested.

    You might play a lot of different genres and need a mouse that's versatile enough to handle them all. The best wireless gaming mouse we've tested is the Razer Naga Pro. It comes with three swappable side panels, meaning you can choose between a 2-, 6-, or 12-button layout to best suit your needs.

    No matter which panel you choose, you can reprogram all buttons using the companion software. You can also use the software to customize the RGB lighting and create profile settings. You can save these settings to the mouse's onboard memory and take them with you from game to game or device to device. Its click latency over its USB connection is impressive, so games will feel very responsive. Also, it connects wirelessly with a USB receiver, which you can plug directly into your computer or the included signal extender.

    Unfortunately, its sensor is pretty inconsistent and tends to undershoot the set CPI considerably during quick movements. Also, it's a fairly bulky mouse, so gamers with small hands may have difficulty reaching all buttons. With that said, this mouse is a great choice if you're looking for a versatile mouse that can adapt to many game genres and tasks, and it's our pick the most versatile wireless gaming mouse we've tested.

    The best budget wireless gaming mouse we've tested is the Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED. This affordable option features an ambidextrous design that's well-suited for a fingertip grip, no matter your hand size. Its solid, plastic body feels very similar to more premium Logitech offerings, and overall it feels very comfortable to use.

    The mouse connects wirelessly with a USB receiver, and you can store the receiver internally under the palm rest panel. It also uses a single AA battery, so you won't have to worry about a charging cable. Performance-wise, it feels very fast and responsive, and you can adjust the CPI settings to your specific needs. Also, you can assign a G-Shift button through the software to enable a second layer of controls.

    Unfortunately, its compact body isn't suitable for larger hands with a palm or claw grip. Also, despite its small size, it's rather heavy, so gamers looking for a lightweight mouse may prefer another option. Another downside is that the included feet don't provide as smooth a gliding experience as other gaming mice, though third-party feet are available to buy. That said, this mouse is a good option if you're looking for something at a low price point but don't want to compromise on features and performance.

  • ROCCAT Kone Pro Air: The ROCCAT Kone Pro Air is a somewhat more affordable alternative to the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT, but it has higher click latency and isn't as lightweight.

  • Pwnage Ultra Custom Wireless Ergo: The Pwnage Ultra Custom Wireless Ergo is a versatile alternative to the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT.

See our review
  • Logitech G303 Shroud Edition: The Logitech G303 Shroud Edition is a good alternative to the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT.

Our recommendations above are what we think are currently the best wireless gaming mice for most people. We factor in the price (a cheaper mouse wins over a pricier one if the difference isn't worth it), feedback from our visitors, and availability (no mice that are difficult to find or almost out of stock everywhere).

If you would like to do the work of choosing yourself, here is the list of our wireless mice that are ideally suited for gaming. Be careful not to get too caught up in the details. While no mouse is perfect for every use, most mice are great enough to please almost everyone, and the differences are often not noticeable unless you really look for them.
