Best Gaming Mouse (2021): Wireless, Corded, and Under $50


Picking a gaming mouse is a very personal endeavor. Everyone’s hands are different, everyone’s preferences and needs are different, and we all play different games. That’s why we’re lucky to live in the golden age of gaming mice, with major manufacturers pouring engineering muscle into one-upping each other. The result is a market loaded with high-quality yet relatively inexpensive gaming mice.

I’ve tested quite a few before and during quarantine. Being stuck inside means a lot of time in front of a computer, for work and for play. While I can’t tell you precisely which mouse is right for you, I can give you a few recommendations. So, here they are: our recommendations for the best gaming mouse for every kind of gamer.

Be sure to also read up on our favorite gaming headsets, wireless gaming headsets, and keyboards.

Updated for January 2021: Updated pricing on a few items, added Logitech G203.
