Best FPS mouse? - Page 3

post #31 of 39

^

 

You know higher DPI = not better tracking? :P

 

DPI is 100% marketing, nothing else. 

Very few people use over 3000dpi. and if they do, its cause they dont know better and have in-game sens turned very low. 

95% of pro fps players use between 300 - 1000dpi. Lower dpi will help your accuracy & muscle memory.

I used to be a "high" dpi'er myself, till I started playing CS:GO.

Now I use 350Dpi and 800 for desktop.

^ This.

 

I only run around 1100 dpi max and find I find it's more than enough for me. Everyone is different though and obviously have their own preferences.

 

More importantly I find that mouse acceleration (whether it be software or hardware/sensor related) is something I just can't live with. It just feels plain wrong to me, and it's a big part of why I went back to using only optical mice.

Yep, my high-low settings are about 800-400 even though the mouse supports well into the 1000's

Mionix Avior 7000

Steelseries Rival

Razer DeathAdder 2013

Logitech G502

 

These 4 are the best new mices on the market.

The G502 got the best sensor, but weights alot #brodoyouevenlift

Ive owned them all exept the G502.

Tie between Rival and Avior for me.

I have the Avior 7000, Naos 7000 and G502 on hand alongside my G700 at the moment. I have to say that with my hand size and grip the G502 blows both Mionix mice away in comfort and control. I can't speak to the Steelseries or Razer as I haven't had either.

I'm using an ancient Logitech MX518 rev1, its easily 10 years old at this stage, wore out the right click button playing Battlefield so soldered in a replacement switch and it hasn't missed a beat since.  What more could you ask from a gaming mouse...

Interesting, might have to grab a G502 to try out.

For a FPS mouse, I would personally recommend a optical mouse like the steelseries rival I am using. Typically a relatively low dpi is used for fps games and IMO optical mice that I have owned(mx518,rival,m325:D) track ever so much better than laser mice that I have owned(sensei,G500). Also optical mice are less picky about your mouse pad/table top than laser ones.

The Rival IMO has the perfect weighting and shape. The buttons are all perfectly placed, 

 

TL;DR I recommend the Steelseries Rival.:smile:

Logitech G400.  <---- I've tried a bunch but this is the best mouse I have used.
