Top 40


What you need to know…

I’m Zy, over 18 years playing Quake, reviewed over 60 mice. The list is based on my experience and community feedback. Everyone is different, so even the mouse at #40 could be your #1. Don’t stress the number. Find the right mouse for you!

If your mouse isn’t on the list, it’s either not a top recommendation or I haven’t reviewed it. This list will be updated as I get new mice.

Changes 01 August 2017

I’ve changed the order of the Top 40 a fair bit due to new information regarding build quality, availability and alternatives being added… for example, the DM1 Pro S and Revel are both still very good mice, but they drop down because the new Sensei 310 is going to be recommended more. That’s also the reason why the G403 and G703 wireless aren’t ranked higher… because the G403 wired is recommended more (it’s a higher recommendation because it’s lighter, not because of the wireless). The Scream One never fully escaped its issues, which is a shame because the shape, sensor and weight are deserving of a top rank. And as always, any mouse could be your number one, it really depends on your needs. The G900 / G903 is still my most used mouse, I only switch when I want to play Quake, yet it’s ranked at #20 now, so don’t let the numbers bother you, they’re a general guide.
