The Best Wireless Gaming Mouse - Spring 2023 Mice Reviews

Updated
Best Wireless Gaming Mouse

The best wireless gaming mice have improved by leaps and bounds recently. Manufacturers have found new ways to reduce click latency, increase battery life, and improve the reliability of wireless connections. That said, not all wireless mice are created equal. 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. When choosing the right option for you, the shape and how the mouse feels in your hand are some of the most important factors to consider. However, click latency, sensor performance, and overall weight are important elements if you're an FPS gamer. On the other hand, having access to many customizable buttons is essential if you primarily play MMOs or MOBAs.

We've tested over 285 mice, and below are our recommendations for wireless gaming mice. 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

    The best wireless gaming mouse is the Razer Viper V2 Pro. It has the same low-profile, symmetrical shape as previous models in the Viper lineup, and it's a great choice for a claw or fingertip grip for most hand sizes. This version is dramatically lighter than previous models, meaning it's easier to make fast and accurate movements with. Even though it's extremely light, it has excellent build quality and feels very sturdy. Under the hood, this new version has exceptionally low click latency, an extended advertised battery, updated optical switches, and Razer's new Focus Pro 30K sensor, the most advanced sensor currently available. However, these performance gains were achieved by removing several features, including RGB lighting and rubber grips.

    This new version only has side buttons on the left, while previous models have side buttons on both sides. If you're interested in alternatives and are a fan of some of this lineup's legacy features, check out the Razer Viper Ultimate. It's significantly heavier, but it's currently much cheaper. Or, if you like the sound of all the improvements, but aren't enthusiastic about its shape, check out the Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro. It shares all the same internals as the Viper V2 Pro, but its shape is ideal for larger hands and has a sloping design specifically for right-handed users.

  2. Best Upper Mid-Range Wireless Gaming Mouse

    At an upper mid-range price point, we recommend the Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED. Its price has been variable lately, but it frequently goes on sale and can drop to around the same price as our best mid-range pick, the LAMZU Atlantis. It's an excellent choice if you often play games in different genres. It has a comfortable, right-handed shape with a thumb rest and twelve programmable buttons. Its scroll wheel also has a free-scrolling mode and left and right tilt inputs, which are handy features for quickly scrolling through documents and browsing online between gaming sessions.

    In raw performance, it has excellent click latency and a high-end sensor that provides outstanding performance across the board. However, this mouse is much heavier than our top pick, the Razer Viper V2 Pro. It even includes optional weights for adjusting the weight distribution. This means it isn't ideal if you only play reaction-based titles like FPS games, but the overall strength of this mouse is its versatility.

    Logitech has recently released new versions of this mouse called the Logitech G502 X LIGHTSPEED and the Logitech G502 X PLUS (these two are nearly identical, but the PLUS version has RGB lighting). The versions are somewhat lighter and have a softer visual design. They also include new quiet optical switches and a slightly different button layout. They're also significantly more expensive, so we still recommend the previous generation models unless these minor changes are priorities for you.

  3. Best Mid-Range Wireless Gaming Mouse

    The best mid-range wireless gaming mouse we've tested is the LAMZU Atlantis. Note that some of the larger online retailers have had difficulty keeping this mouse in stock due to its popularity, but it can be worthwhile to check smaller vendors or LAMZU itself. Also, LAMZU have just released an 'updated' version of this mouse called the LAMZU Atlantis OG V2. This new version is identical, except the feet on the bottom of the mouse are a bit larger.

    The Atlantis has a comfortable symmetrical shape that's particularly well-suited for a claw grip for most hand sizes. Unlike most gaming mice, it's also available in a range of eye-catching colors, though it doesn't have any RGB lighting. Its unique bottom plate design features a partially open, transparent plastic frame. This design helps ensure the mouse is as lightweight and easy to move as possible, making it a standout choice if you mostly play fast-paced games. However, it also means it's more open to collecting dust and debris. This mouse offers excellent performance all around, using PixArt's new flagship sensor, the PAW 3395, which is closely related to the sensor in our top pick, the Razer Viper V2 Pro.

  4. Best Lower Mid-Range Wireless Gaming Mouse

    For a more affordable option at a lower mid-range price point, we recommend the Razer Basilisk V3 X HyperSpeed. This mouse has much in common with our best upper mid-range pick, the Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED. It has the same fundamental ergonomic right-handed shape and delivers comparable high-end gaming performance. One of the major differences is that this mouse uses AA batteries for power. Secondly, while you can connect it wirelessly with its USB receiver for competitive gaming when you need the best performance out of your mouse, you can also connect it using Bluetooth when playing more casual titles or just browsing to stretch out the battery life dramatically.

    That said, the downsides of this mouse are that it doesn't have as many programmable buttons as the Logitech, and its scroll wheel also lacks a free-scrolling mode and left and right tilt inputs. Also, like the Logitech, it's fairly heavy, so it may not be a good fit if you only play fast-paced, reaction-based games that require quick mouse movements. Altogether, this is an outstanding wireless option if you want a comfortable ergonomic mouse for more casual gaming and want to stretch out that battery life without worrying about charging cables.

  5. Best Budget Wireless Gaming Mouse

    For a budget option that offers a high-quality wireless gaming performance, we recommend the Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED. Depending on what region of the world you live in, this mouse may also be known as the Logitech G304 LIGHTSPEED, but it's the same mouse. This mouse connects with a LIGHTSPEED USB receiver and has an impressive battery life, advertised at up to 250 hours using a single AA battery. It also has a cable to extend the receiver signal, so you get the best wireless performance possible. Under the hood, its sensor is very consistent, and its click latency is excellent, providing a responsive-feeling experience for gaming in any genre. You can adjust the CPI sensitivity settings very precisely, and its egg-like shape is a comfortable option for claw or fingertip grippers for nearly all hand sizes.

    Impressively, the build quality closely resembles some of Logitech's higher-priced options. However, its feet aren't as high quality, and swapping these feet out for third-party alternatives is a popular modification for enthusiasts. Additionally, as an older entry, this mouse is significantly heavier than more recent gaming options, meaning you may also want to consider more lightweight options if you exclusively play fast-paced, reaction-based games.

Notable Mentions

  • Pulsar X2 Wireless: The Pulsar X2 Wireless has a very similar shape to the LAMZU Atlantis, but it's slightly smaller and delivers marginally better performance. Like the LAMZU, it's also been hard to find in stock lately due to its popularity. It's also typically a bit more expensive and has a much more subtle, straightforward look compared to the Atlantis. This may be a plus for you if you want something a bit less flashy on your desk. See our review
  • Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT: The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT is a similarly high-end alternative to the Razer Viper V2 Pro. Its symmetrical shape is a bit more accommodating to a wider range of hand sizes and grip types. However, it's slightly more expensive than the Razer and has a shorter advertised battery life. It also uses a relatively outdated micro-USB cable for charging. See our review
  • Razer Naga Pro: The Razer Naga Pro is a great alternative to the Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED if you want a mouse with even more programmable buttons. It has modular side panels with different button layouts, including a 12-button grid that's great for MMOs, MOBAs, or other games with plenty of controls. However, it's typically more expensive. See our review
  • GLORIOUS Model O Wireless: The GLORIOUS Model O Wireless is a lightweight option that's less expensive than the LAMZU Atlantis and includes RGB lighting. However, it's heavier and doesn't perform quite as well. See our review
  • GLORIOUS Model D Wireless: The GLORIOUS Model D Wireless is another mid-range lightweight option that's less expensive than the LAMZU Atlantis. It has a bit more of an aggressive right-handed curve, is a bit larger, and features RGB lighting. That said, it's heavier and doesn't perform as well. See our review

All Reviews

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.
