Wired or wireless? Budget or bank-breaking? We’ve compiled a list of the best gaming mice (mouses… meece?) you can quite literally get your hands on in 2022!

You’ve got the comfiest gaming chair, and maybe even a stylish magnetic desk to go with it. There are a lot of components that go into perfecting your gaming set-up. Some are bigger than others, meaning some parts can get overlooked now and then. If you’re a PC gamer, you’re not going to get very far without a decent mouse.

With so many elements to consider – like style, shape, size, feel – finding the right one for you can be a bit of a challenge. If you’re someone who enjoys a longer sesh, getting a gaming mouse that is ergonomic and comfortable is vital. Perhaps you’re very specific about the colour scheme of your gaming accessories.

In an attempt to make your mission to whittle down the best gaming mice a bit smoother, we’ve listed our favourites of 2022!

Razer Basilisk V3

A mouse of the wired variety, it’s no surprise that gaming giants, Razer have created such a standout PC accessory. The Razer Basilisk V3 will fit any colour scheme or design thanks to the full spectrum RGB light that runs around the bottom of the mouse.

It’s a highly comfortable mouse, that also comes with plenty of cool features. One of these being the smart scroll wheel technology that enables you to switch between rigid and free scrolling. The Hyperscroll Tilt Wheel provides another level of functionality to this mouse, switching between modes depending on the intensity of your scroll.

A generous and grippy thumb section on the side provides comfort, whilst housing two chunky thumb buttons. The Basilisk V3 is sizeable without being clunky, but doesn’t have a sizeable price tag. For $70, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better gaming mouse for this figure.

Logitech G502 Lightspeed

For those of you who prefer not to be tied down, Logitech have made the G502 Lightspeed. A wireless mouse that is as robust as it is sensitive, this is definitely one of the best out there.

Despite the lack of wire, this mouse is fast and accurate, not compromising on anything. This may be why it isn’t the most budget option out there. However, at around $150, it is a fair investment for a more than decent bit of essential gaming gear.

The buttons are bouncy and durable, with the mouse feeling comfortable whichever way you grip it. With a click of the wheel, you can switch between rigid scrolling and free scrolling. Handy for both gaming and general computer use. The G502 is nicely customisable in terms of weight, allowing up to 16g of weight to be added to the mouse. This thing is easily one of the best gaming mice, sans wire, available right now.

SteelSeries Sensei 310

Right-handed, left-handed, or ambidextrous – it doesn’t matter with the Sensei 310 from SteelSeries. With its own custom version of one of the best gaming sensors out there, the Sensei 310 can keep up with just about anything.

The classic SteelSeries ambidextrous shape remains, but there’s quite a lot that’s new with this gaming mouse. The plastic shell makes for a grippier surface, keeping hold of the sweatiest of palms. Delightful. Its medium size means it’s the ideal shape for your average gamer. And, its ambidextrous design features a pair of identical thumb buttons on the left and right of the body. This might sound like an issue, and accidental clicking waiting to happen. The Sensei 310 is designed in such a way that mistaken pinky clicking won’t plague your gaming.

At around $80, this mouse sits fairly in the middle in terms of affordability. However, its versatility and comfort makes it worth every penny.

Corsair M65 Ultra Wireless

The Corsair M65 Ultra Wireless boasts a comfortably bulky design, with chunky buttons that you’ll never miss. If you’re somebody who prefers a lighter mouse with a slimmer design, this could sound problematic. It’s down to preference, but the chunkiness offers a feeling of total control. You can add up to 18g of weight to this wireless beauty, meaning you can customise it to your preference anyway.

A fun feature that this mouse possesses is a gyroscope that you can trigger preset actions with when you tilt the entire mouse. Once you customise the settings in Corsair’s software, iCue, you could tilt your mouse to reload, for example.

Unlike the G502 Lightspeed, there isn’t the option to free scroll when the wheel is clicked. This means that, although a fantastic gaming mouse, the M65 may not be as great at flitting from game to general use. However, if that isn’t a big deal for you, this is certainly one of the best gaming mice going.
