Best Gaming Mouse For 2021: Razer, SteelSeries, and More

Give your hands those good mouse feels with the best gaming mice from Steelseries, Razer, Logitech, Corsair, and HyperX.

No tool is more important in a PC gamer's arsenal than the gaming mouse. It performs most of the major tasks in any game, and each action requires pinpoint accuracy. That's why it's not only important to have a mouse you can adjust the sensitivity on, but also one you're okay holding for hours on end. Not to mention, there are a number of other key factors you need to consider: programmable buttons, RGB lighting, and more. And of course, you have to decide between wired or wireless options--thankfully, wireless gaming mice are quite good these days.

Razer, SteelSeries, and Corsair are just a few of the great gaming mouse brands, and each of them have their popular models. The Razer DeathAdder V2 is a big mouse that is as reliable as it is comfortable, the SteelSeries Sensei Ten is an incredible ambidextrous option, and the Corsair Ironclaw RGB is the one of the best gaming mouse options with RGB lighting on the market. Of course, even these don't come with all of the features other mice do. The Corsair Scimitar Pro, for example, comes with far more buttons, making it a great choice for MMOs, strategy games, and other tactical genres.

With so many different things to consider--and options to choose from--we at GameSpot have tested a large number of gaming mice to find the best ones out there. Below, we've listed the best of the best in each category of gaming mouse you can think of.
