Best Budget Gaming Mouse 2022 - IGN (2022)

Whether you're gaming on your PC or just trying to get some work done, having a dependable and accurate mouse can make a big difference. Selecting text and clicking into the right spreadsheet cells is one thing, but once you're gaming, it gets even more important to have a great mouse, and there are many gaming mice to choose from. Unfortunately, with all those options, there are plenty of duds and many that just cost more than anyone should have to stomach (we're talking the price of a decent processor).

Fortunately, we've tried out so many mice, so we know which can still muster solid performance while boasting a price tag that's more gentle on the eyes. In fact, some of these gaming mice even borrow the design and features of their more expensive counterparts but stay a bit more affordable by dialing back things like RGB lighting or fancy connectivity options. Most of these options will cost you less than $50 while still delivering solid performance that track accurately enough for you to start working on your muscle memory and train those flick shots.

Below, you'll find wired and wireless mice that may seem simple at first but will work great whether you're a new gamer or a seasoned competitor.

TL;DR – These are the Best Budget Gaming Mice:

1. SteelSeries Rival 3 Wireless

Best Budget Gaming Mouse

Best Budget Gaming Mouse 2022 - IGN (1)

SteelSeries Rival 3 Wireless

The SteelSeries Rival 3 is already a top-notch budget gaming mouse, but now it's leveled up with the Rival 3 Wireless. It takes the familiar shape of the Rival series and provides it with speedy wireless connectivity thanks to a low-latency wireless dongle. You also get Bluetooth for ample flexibility in how you use it. Since this mouse is wireless, solid battery life is essential, and it can run for over 400 hours on a pair of AAA batteries, but you can also opt to run on a single AAA battery if you prefer a lighter weight.

If you’re concerned about performance, the Rival 3 Wireless doesn’t disappoint. With an 18,000 CPI max sensitivity from its TrueMove Air optical sensor and tracking at up to 400 inches-per-second and 40G accelerations, this is undoubtedly a high-performance mouse. You also get six programmable buttons and other mouse customizations that SteelSeries makes easy to tinker with using their software. There’s even a tiny bit of RGB lighting on the scroll wheel for helpful battery alerts and in-game notifications. And somehow, the mouse does all this while maintaining a low price, coming in under $50.

2. Logitech G305 Lightspeed

Best Budget Wireless Gaming Mouse

Logitech G305 Lightspeed

(Video) Top 5 BEST Gaming Mouse of [2022]

If you’re on the hunt for a reliable wireless gaming mouse that won’t break the bank, the Logitech G305 Lightspeed is the one for you. It just can’t be beaten when it comes to performance versus price. For around $40, it’ll connect to your gaming PC or gaming laptop using a 2.4GHz wireless dongle, though you don’t get Bluetooth to use it with more devices. In gaming, we know speed is often everything, so even though it’s wireless, the Lightspeed tech ensures you still get an ultrafast response time of 1ms. And battery life shouldn’t be a big concern either, as it totes 250 hours of continuous play before you need to change the single AA battery.

The Logitech G305 Lightspeed comes packing a HERO optical sensor with an impressive 12,000 DPI sensitivity, 400 IPS precision, and up to 40G of acceleration. That means this mouse can track even your speediest movements with incredible accuracy, giving you a leg up in FPS games. You’ll be maneuvering the mouse with ease, too, because even though it’s wireless, it manages to remain lightweight, and the PTFE feet glide well on the majority of surfaces. The six programmable buttons also mean you can customize the mouse to games or activities you’re performing. It’s also super durable and compact, so you can toss it in a bag when traveling.

3. Fnatic Clutch 2 Pro

Best Budget Ergonomic Gaming Mouse

Best Budget Gaming Mouse 2022 - IGN (3)

Fnatic Clutch 2 Pro

The Fnatic Clutch 2 Pro gaming mouse is built for comfort and competitive gaming, but it comes at a very reasonable price. This wired option totes an ergonomic shape and is easy to hold for hours thanks to a rubberized side grip that both claw-grip and palm-grip gamers should enjoy. A low, 97-gram weight and glides allows it to move at high speeds, which is essential in most games. Fnatic tops that all off with some custom RGB lighting at the scroll wheel and on the Fnatic logo.

Despite the low price, it includes a PixArt PMW3360 optical sensor that’s not only capable of some competitive tracking but also offers an adjustable lift-off distance so you can tune the mouse to behave appropriately in line with how you prefer to aim. The mouse is capable of tracking up to 12,000 DPI and can handle accelerations up to 50G and speeds up to 250 inches per second. You even get six buttons, which can be programmed to perform different functions in games.

4. Corsair Katar Pro XT

Best Budget Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse

Corsair Katar Pro XT

(Video) Why is EVERYONE Buying this $35 Gaming Keyboard? - Redragon K552 Kumara

Need a cheap gaming mouse you can hold just as comfortably in your left hand as your right? The Corsair Katar Pro XT is it. This affordable option has a familiar, symmetrical design with textured grips on the sides that you’ll be content to hold for hours. Though, it’s worth noting that there are only thumb buttons on one side. It’s also lightweight making it easy to swing around in even the most frantic gaming moments, while the durable plastic body and 6-foot braided cable can hold up against whatever you throw at it. There’s even some RGB lighting in the scroll wheel that can sync up with other Corsair peripherals. Not bad for a mouse slightly over $30.

Beyond that, the Corsair Katar Pro XT brings plenty of performance potential to its price point. It features an optical sensor that can track up to 18,000 DPI, and you can tune the tracking exactly to your liking in 1 DPI increments. Corsair has also implemented Quickstrike buttons to reduce the depth the mouse buttons travel before actuating, helping you get your inputs registered much faster. You don’t get loads of extra buttons, but the six on-mouse should be plenty and can be programmed to your liking.

5. Razer Basilisk V3

Best Budget FPS Gaming Mouse

Best Budget Gaming Mouse 2022 - IGN (5)

Razer Basilisk V3

The Razer Basilisk line of mice has featured some of our favorite options for FPS gaming thanks to their ergonomic design and stellar sensor. The tradition continues with the Razer Basilisk V3. Priced slightly above $60, this wired mouse features a comfortable form factor designed for right-handers with easy access to buttons and an included thumb rest. You’ll get a 26K DPI optical sensor—plenty fast for any PC gamer—and sensitivity can drop instantly, thanks to a sniper button. This feature gives you a better aim to take down opponents.

The Razer Basilisk V3 comes packing tons of other customizable buttons with tactile mechanical switches sure to give you a leg up on the competition. There is a solid, non-removable thumb paddle. It has a DPI clutch—basically paddle shifts down the side of the mouse—that’ll also work perfectly for sniping. Though you can customize those shifters and the ten other buttons on this mouse to do whatever you please with Razer Synapse. Plus, a HyperScroll Tilt Wheel features different modes for speedy scrolling or precision, depending on what you’re using it for. There are even 11 zones of customizable RGB lighting loaded in.

6. Roccat Burst Pro

Best Budget RGB Gaming Mouse

Best Budget Gaming Mouse 2022 - IGN (6)

Roccat Burst Pro

For an affordable gaming mouse that has heaps of flair, you want the Roccat Burst Pro. This gaming mouse borrows some cues from lightweight gaming mice—a category it actually falls into thanks to its 68g weight—with its use of a honeycomb pattern design. But, rather than opening up the frame, Roccat has covered the honeycomb in a translucent layer that lets the Burst Pro’s RGB lighting shine through brilliantly. That layer also keeps dirt and dust out of the mouse’s internals. While a total of three lighting zones, including one on the scroll wheel, can sync with other compatible AIMO products for a flashy, uniform look that changes based on the action in your games.

Of course, we wouldn’t recommend a gaming mouse if it didn’t also have the chops for gaming. The Roccat Burst Pro features the Owl-Eye 16K optical sensor, which handles high-speed mouse movements with high-resolution tracking up to 400 inches per second. There’s even a dedicated DPI button to make adjustments on the fly. It also supports an adjustable lift-off distance, so you’ll get to fine-tune your controls. Roccat has implemented optical switches in the mouse buttons for incredibly fast actuation and extended hardware longevity. In total, there are six buttons that you can customize to your liking, and you can save up to five profiles on the mouse.

7. Razer Naga X

Best Budget MMO Gaming Mouse

Best Budget Gaming Mouse 2022 - IGN (7)

Razer Naga X

If you're playing MMOs, what you need from your mouse is really a second keyboard. And that's more or less what the Razer Naga X is offering at a fair price point. With this mouse, you get a total of 16 buttons, a number that blows all our other options out of the water. The star of the show is the thumb buttons, as this controller features a three-by-four grid of thumb buttons. Those twelve programable controls are always within easy reach for your thumb, so you'll be able to dial up your APM and pop-off abilities without having to reach across your keyboard to hit the right key.

Beyond the impressive array of buttons, the Razer Naga X totes Razer's 5G optical sensor, offering sensitivities up to 18,000 DPI. The wired mouse is also surprisingly lightweight, so MMO gamers can finally join the slimmed-down gaming mice trend. It has a slightly ergonomic design and textured plastic grip on the side, with extra space for your pinky and ring fingers to not get cramped. Though, we miss the rubberized grip that game with previous iterations of the mouse.

8. Razer Viper Mini

Ambidextrous Awesomeness

Best Budget Gaming Mouse 2022 - IGN (8)

Razer Viper Mini

(Video) Logitech M650 Mouse: Good Enough For GAMING?! | Can You Game On It?

The Razer Viper Mini carries on the legacy of the Razer Viper, except it does so while being outright compact. This is one of the lightest gaming mice you'll find, as it weighs in at just 61 grams. It's still a proper gaming mouse, though. This model is slightly taller than the original, but it trims the length and width to give smaller hands an easier grip and access to the main buttons without needing to awkwardly slide forward. If you're a southpaw gamer, its ambidextrous design can help you as well, though you will lose access to the thumb button.

Despite its small size, the Razer Viper Mini still has the perks you expect in a gaming mouse. You get an optical sensor that can track at 8,500 CPI and hold up to the fast movements it might experience while you're gaming. It'll track even when accelerating at up to 35Gs and moving at 300 inches per second, so don't worry about it holding you back during flick shots. It features six buttons to give you all your primary gaming controls. Those buttons are also built with optical switches for fast activation and considerable longevity. To top the mouse off, you get a healthy dose of customizable RGB lighting.

9. HyperX Pulsefire Haste

Best Budget Ultra Lightweight Gaming Mouse

Best Budget Gaming Mouse 2022 - IGN (9)

HyperX Pulsefire Haste

As far as capable gaming mice go, the HyperX Pulsefire Haste is about as light as they come, weighing less than even the Razer Viper Mini at just 59g. The Pulsefire Haste combines its low weight with other quality features, making it a strong pick at a low price. It trims weight using a honeycomb pattern cut out from the frame, similar to what you'll see from many lightweight gaming mice. HyperX works to keep the USB cable light by using a flexible paracord. The paracord and PTFE skates also help cut down on friction, so your mouse movements will be smooth and consistent. If you're willing to sacrifice a bit of weight for more grip, HyperX includes grip tape that can go on the sides and primary mouse buttons.

When it comes to gaming, you'll still be getting a high-resolution optical sensor from PixArt that can handle tracking at high speeds and accelerations. HyperX doesn't dump any of the traditional buttons either, keeping left thumb buttons (sorry, left-handed users) and the DPI switch in place. Those buttons can also be programmed to perform different functions, and the mouse can save several profiles on board. The whole package is topped off with—you guessed it—a single RGB lighting zone on the scroll wheel.

Best Budget Gaming Mouse FAQ

How to Choose a Budget Gaming Mouse

The first and most important thing about choosing the right mouse for you is its shape. For the most part, mice come in exactly two shapes: ambidextrous or ergonomic. While it might seem like a simple choice that all right-handed users should pick an ergonomic shape while left-handed are left with whatever is ambidextrous, the way you hold the mouse is just as important too.

To that end, there are also two primary types of mouse grip: palm and claw. For the former palm grip technique, you'll want a mouse with a tall back that can support your hand—as well as some level of pinky and ring finger support. Claw grippers, on the other hand, should look for a mouse that's relatively short and has a small footprint.

Is It Worth Buying a Cheap Gaming Mouse?

In this day and age, you really don't have to sacrifice a lot when you're trying to save a buck on a gaming mouse. Many of the cheap options out there offer a high level of DPI and polling rate to keep up with even the best premium gaming mice. That said, not all mice are built equal; some offer more buttons with others are ergonomically designed for a certain handiness (usually for right-handed users), so there are a few things to consider when buying something more affordable.

How Much should You Spend on a Cheap Gaming Mouse?

Although some of the best gaming mice brands have a budget option these days that offer decent quality, that doesn't mean you should buy just any cheap option. Although there are sometimes discounts that drop the price of some good wired mice down near $20, you'll usually want to spend a little bit more to get something you won't be disappointed in. The best budget mice tend to cost anywhere between $30 and $60.
