The Best Wireless Gaming Mouse - Summer 2022 Mice Reviews

Updated
Best Wireless Gaming Mouse

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 overall reliability of their 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 still some of the most important factors to consider. However, minimum lift-off distance, button placement, 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 250 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

    If you're an FPS gamer looking for a wireless option, the Razer Viper Ultimate is hard to beat. This lightweight, ambidextrous model is an excellent choice whether you're left- or right-handed because it has a symmetrical shape and a pair of side buttons on either side. It connects wirelessly using a USB receiver, which you can either plug directly into your computer or into the included charging cradle, which also acts as a signal extender.

    If you're an FPS gamer, you'll appreciate its very low click latency, making it feel very fast and responsive in-game. It also has a consistent sensor, so your set CPI will feel accurate, which is important if you're used to specific sensitivity settings. There's a pair of buttons on each side, making this a great choice if you're right- or left-handed, 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 if you have small hands, you'll struggle to control this mouse 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 to other computers without the software installed. Overall, this mouse is an excellent choice for FPS gamers and one of the best gaming mice we've tested.

  2. Cheaper Alternative

    If you're looking for a cheaper option that still has heavy-hitting performance, the Razer DeathAdder V2 Pro is worth a look. It isn't a true ambidextrous mouse with side buttons on either side like the Razer Viper Ultimate, and it isn't as lightweight, but it has slightly lower click latency. You can also pair it wirelessly with up to two devices via Bluetooth, which is helpful if you plan to use it with other devices for work or everyday browsing. Using it in Bluetooth mode can also save battery life when you're not gaming. It has exceptional mouse feet that glide very well on mousepads and desks and includes the same high-performance sensor as the Razer Viper Ultimate. Unfortunately, its lift-off distance isn't as low, so you may need to lift your mouse slightly higher whenever you reposition during gameplay. It's suitable for nearly all hand sizes and is especially comfortable for claw and palm grippers.

    If you don't mind spending the extra money on a lighter, truly ambidextrous mouse, get the Viper Ultimate. If you're right-handed and want to save some money on a mouse with slightly better click latency and Bluetooth support, go with the DeathAdder V2 Pro.

  3. Best Ultra-Light Wireless Gaming Mouse

    It's rare to find a mouse that successfully combines top-of-the-line performance in an ultra-lightweight package, but that's just what the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT does, and it's the best wireless ultra-light gaming mouse we've tested. It's incredibly lightweight, coming in at only 59g, which is impressive considering it has a solid plastic body, unlike many lightweight mice that have cutouts in their bodies to reduce their overall weight.

    Regardless of if you're right- or left-handed, this mouse feels comfortable thanks to its symmetrical shape; however, it's not a truly ambidextrous mouse as there's a pair of buttons only on the left side. You can use the companion software to remap buttons, adjust the CPI and polling rate, and assign a G-Shift button to enable a second layer of controls. Also, its latency is very low, and its sensor is very consistent, so games feel responsive and fluid. 

    Unfortunately, this mouse is expensive and doesn't frequently go on sale. It also doesn't have RGB lighting. It undoubtedly helps it remain as lightweight as it is, but you may be disappointed if you like having customizable lighting effects to match your overall gaming setup. That said, it's an excellent option if you want a mouse that doesn't sacrifice performance to attain its exceptionally low weight. In addition to being one of the best lightweight mice, it's also among the best we've tested, period.

  4. Best Versatile Wireless Gaming Mouse

    If you're looking for a versatile mouse to handle your varied taste in games, check out the Razer Naga Pro. This solidly built option comes with three interchangeable side panels with a 2-, 6-, or 12-button layout, so you can choose the side panel that best suits your game. It's great for right-handed players, and the pinky rest on the side adds additional comfort.

    No matter which panel you choose, you can reprogram all the buttons using the companion software. You can also use the software to customize the RGB lighting and create custom profile settings, then save these settings to the mouse's onboard memory to bring along with you across devices. Impressively, its click latency is remarkably low, so games in any genre will feel snappy and responsive. It also includes a USB receiver extender which can help you stay within an optimal range of your computer and get the best wireless performance while gaming.

    Unfortunately, the sensor is inconsistent and undershoots the set CPI considerably more during quick movements compared to other high-end Razer mice that share the same sensor. It's also a fairly bulky mouse, so if you have small hands, you'll have difficulty reaching all the buttons. Overall, this mouse is a great choice if you're looking for a flexible option that you can adapt to different games and tasks, and it's our pick for the most versatile wireless gaming mouse we've tested.

  5. Best Budget Wireless Gaming Mouse

    The Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED is a classic, budget-friendly, wireless mouse. Its tried-and-true, egg-like shape is comfortable to use with a claw or fingertip grip no matter your hand size. Despite the budget price point, it feels well-built, solid, and similar to more premium Logitech offerings.

    You can connect this mouse to your computer using a USB receiver, and it also comes with a cable to extend the receiver signal, ensuring that you're always within range of the signal. Under the hood, its sensor is very consistent, and its click latency is low enough to handle competitive games and still feel responsive. Using the software, you can adjust the CPI settings very precisely within a broad range, and you can also assign a G-Shift button to use a second layer of controls.

    Unfortunately, its feet aren't as high quality as the ones found on more premium gaming mice, but you can easily replace these with third-party options if you want. Also, it's compact but heavy, meaning it's not well-suited for larger hands to use, and it's not a good choice if you're looking for a dedicated lightweight mouse. Overall, this mouse is a performant option for a wireless gaming mouse that doesn't break the bank.

However, its CPI is only adjustable by steps of 200, and its lift-off distance is high compared to the G305. See our review
  • GLORIOUS Model O Wireless: The GLORIOUS Model O Wireless is a great alternative to the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT. While it's quite a bit heavier than the SUPERLIGHT, and its click latency isn't as low, it has RGB lighting and is much cheaper. See our review
  • GLORIOUS Model D Wireless: The GLORIOUS Model D Wireless is a more ergonomic alternative to the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT.

See our review
  • ASUS ROG Spatha X: The ASUS ROG Spatha X is an impressive alternative to the Razer Naga Pro. It has a more consistent sensor, and it's a good fit if you prefer a wider and bulkier mouse, but it's much heavier, and it doesn't have as many programmable buttons. See our review
  • Finalmouse Starlight-12 Small: The Finalmouse Starlight-12 Small is the lightest mouse we've tested, and it performs very well overall. Unfortunately, it doesn't have customization software, and it's currently only available through third-party resellers, making it difficult to find at a reasonable price. See our review
  • ROCCAT Kone Pro Air: The ROCCAT Kone Pro Air is a somewhat more affordable alternative to the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT. It has Bluetooth support, which the Logitech lacks, and it has a thumb rest, which is a rare feature for such a lightweight mouse. Unfortunately, it has higher click latency and isn't as lightweight. See our review
  • Pwnage Ultra Custom Wireless Ergo: The Pwnage Ultra Custom Wireless Ergo is a versatile alternative to the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT. It's less expensive and has several modular parts to customize the look and feel of the mouse. However, it isn't as lightweight, and the customization software is only compatible with Windows. See our review
  • Logitech G303 Shroud Edition: The Logitech G303 Shroud Edition is a good alternative to the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT. However, it isn't as lightweight, and its feet don't glide as well as those on the SUPERLIGHT. Also, it has a similar low-quality charging cable that tends to drag on desks and mousepads. See our review
  • Logitech G703 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse with HERO Sensor: The Logitech G703 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse with HERO Sensor is an alternative to the Razer Viper Ultimate if you prefer a right-handed shape, especially for a palm or claw grip. Unfortunately, it's significantly heavier, and its mouse feet don't glide nearly as smoothly as those on the Razer. See our review
  • Pulsar Xlite Wireless: The Pulsar Xlite Wireless is an excellent, equally-lightweight alternative to the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT with comparable performance. However, the Pulsar has pill-shaped cutouts covering the body and on both sides, so it's slightly less comfortable in hand. It also lacks a traditional solid bottom plate, so the mouse's inside is very exposed to dust and debris from the underside. See our review

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.
