We will specially be talking about mice that allow you to aim in first person shooters the best, considering that is where a gaming mouse choice is really excels, and of course, other things like the shape, the wireless implementation, the cable and the input lag. Those are the factors that affect your gameplay the most.

Without further ado, let’s jump right in to talk about the top 5 computer gaming mice for 2022.

Number 5 – The Endgame Gear XM1R Gaming Mouse

The Endgame Gear XM1R gaming mouse

After a serious deliberation this gaming mouse occupies the spot number 5 of our list. There are so many good options in the market right now, and that has made our analysis harder to put together. The Endgame Gear XM1 is not a new model, but one that has a large number of gamers in love with.

Since its launch, the company has improved this old model and brought out a more updated one called the XM1R. This is actually the only mouse on this entire list with a cable, that is how good this mouse is.

The claw grip on this mouse has a very pronounced and well-formed shape and fits really nice in the hand. All the tapers and grooves feel like they are in the perfect spot and the really low main mouse buttons give you a direct angle of interaction for more accuracy while pointing and aiming.

The input lag results are also pretty respectable for the The Endgame Gear XM1R Gaming Mouse. It still lags behind a couple of milliseconds off the top mice performers, but the difference is not that bad, especially for a company this size, competing with juggernauts like Razer or Logitech.

This mouse weights about 70 grams. The updated model comes with a Pixart PAW3370
Sensor and Kailh GM 8.0 main button switches. The price of this mouse revolves around the $60 USD, which is a fair price with such a great constitution and performance.

Number 4 – Pwnage Ultra Custom Symm 2

Pwnage Ultra Custom Symm 2

The Pwnage Ultra Custom Symm 2 gaming mouse came in number 4 on our list for being ultra-light and having such an amazing array of customization options. The shape of this mouse resembles pretty much the Razer Viper Mini shape.

Users raised concerns about the larger original Pwnage Symm wireless version, mainly because of its click input lag and also the software being a little on the buggy side. However, all these problems have been solved in the Pwnage Symm 2. The click lag is within an acceptable range and the software now works seamlessly with the mouse unit.

You have different options for the look of this mouse. First of all, you can choose a honeycomb shell for removing that extra weight and added ventilation, or you can go with the solid shell for the added weight and accuracy. You can even have a combined setup, with the honeycomb top and solid sides, however you prefer. There are also multiple color options for the top shell, buttons and other areas of the mouse, to mix and match according to your likings.

The accuracy on this mouse is due to its Kailh 8.0 switches, with a nice kickback response. The same goes to the scroll wheel, which feels super light and quite meaty. This is a very well-built mouse, perfect for Tap Stretching and Bunny Hopping.

The grip feels satisfying to the touch in a mouse with top-gaming-like features all over it. It has the Razer Viper Mini appeal to it, but without the premium. This is definitely one of the top ergonomic option you will find, coming at around $70 USD.

Number 3 – Logitech G303 Shroud Edition

Logitech G303 Shroud Edition

The shape of this mouse is not something you will fall in love immediately. Once you get over that you will then realize how well-thought-out and how great of a gaming mouse it is. In fact, the shape might be a little different from the rest of the mouse but the ergonomics on this mouse is remarkable.

The Logitech G303 Shroud Edition features Lightspeed technology, making it manageable and one of the fastest mechanical mice around. It is top of the charts for input lag with ultra-low latency. Also comes with a click tensioning system, 2 Super Lion Crispy switches, 5 buttons, a Hero 25K sensor with sub-micron precision and 2 large sliding pads.

If the shape of this mouse wasn’t one turn-off for gamers, this would have been out top 1 gaming mouse of all times. If you have medium to large size hands and the claw grip is your thing you should definitely give this mouse a shot.

Number 2 – Logitech G Pro X Superlight

Logitech G Pro X Superlight

On the other hand, also from the Logitech team, we have our next top pick for gamers, the Logitech G Pro X Superlight. This mouse is really popular among competitive gamers, especially in the realms of Valorant and Apex. The Logitech G Pro is a medium size, 60-gram solid shell mouse, with no cut-outs, and perfectly balanced.

The Logitech G Pro X Superlight features 2 mechanical switches on the main buttons, and just like our previous contender, it comes with a Hero 25K sensor and Lightspeed technology support, a pro-grade wireless connectivity alternative to ensure high-speed and low-latency response.

The only thing that prevents this mouse to be our top pick for this list is the squeaky sound it develops over time when you use it. This is not even a problem affecting the functionality of the mouse, and something you can definitely live with, but for some people this is a showstopper.

Number 1 – Glorious Model D Wireless

Glorious Model D Wireless

The build of the Glorious Model D Wireless is rock solid, and we mean it. The first thing that pops to our eyes when we first grab this mouse is how sturdy and well-built this is. A little above the 69-gram mark, 6 button configuration, BAMF sensor and over 70 hours battery life this is absolutely the mouse to consider specially at its $80 USD price point.

The shape of this mouse is great for palm-grip users, and it is the cheapest and most ergonomic gaming mouse in the market right now. For claw-grip users, we will definitely recommend the Glorious Model O Wireless, since it is smaller than the model D.

It has 3 RGB lighting areas that can be programable through the Glorious Core Software, with presets to change your setup on the fly. You can also change the DPI resolution using the software.

For most people it is a flaw in the design the company aligned the DPI button with the scroll wheel in the same direction, making it really hard not to click it while using the wheel in fast interactions. It is really hard to see companies worrying about nuances like the DPI button, and here Glorious has gone the extra mile to include it on the Model D Wireless. Be it intrusive or not, it is one of those non-essential things, but ultimately nice to have.
