1. Logitech G900
[Score: 10/10] The Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum is ideal for eSports gamers just because Logitech puts great effort to make it a truly professional gaming mouse that can be wireless or wired. Performance wise, it is one of the fastest gaming mice gamers will ever use. The speed and responsiveness of the mouse are due to the Pixert PMW3366 optical sensor. This sensor is one of the industry’s finest because of the exceptional tracking accuracy, which is considered to be one of the best gaming mouse sensors. At 200-12,000 DPI, there is zero smoothing or filtering, and tuck makes the mouse responsive and enables control at any speed.
As always, I’m testing the mice with CS:GO games, and I have to say that Logitech did it again! If you want my personal opinion, the Logitech is so far the best wireless gaming mouse of 2016 for FPS games. It has amazing feel and is very responsive. I really like the scroll wheel with this whole alike design, which is actually a weight reduction measure. One last thing about the scroll wheel is that it finally has a left and right scroll-click besides the regular middle click, which is a rare sight in this segment. It wasn’t useful while I tested it on CS:GO and Day Of Defeat, but certainly in productivity.. Read full review
2. Zowie FK2
[Score: 9.7/10] This is not the best looking gaming mouse on the market, but the Zowie FK2 with the amazing Avago 3310 sensor is one of the best gaming mice for FPS. The new Zowie features improved button latency, which is one of the main reasons many people are purchasing it. The company behind Zowie, BenQ, says that it’s between 10-20ms faster than its predecessor. I would say that this is definitely a good purchase if you’re trying to rank up in CS:GO… Full review available soon

4. Logitech G502 Proteus Core
[Score: 9.2/10] Logitech is one of the top brands that has pleased gamers across the globe with some of the best gaming mice with optical or laser sensors. Every Logitech mouse that is labeled as an FPS gaming mouse has something unusual/unique for gamers. And, Logitech G502 Proteus Core gaming mouse is unique per design and comfort. It has a moderate size with enough room for the gamers who want a mouse with a good palm grip and claw grip.
All 11 buttons are cleverly arranged on this mouse so that a gamer can easily use them. These buttons include a left click button, a right click button, a scroll wheel with clickable functions in three directions, two DPI buttons, three buttons are on thumb size, and two are below the scroll. The button just below the scroll wheel can be used to fine-tune the mouse’s friction, and this button is not programmable. The scroll wheel is super-fast with free scrolling and click-to-click responsiveness features. It is solid enough to make you feel that an action is actually performed when you click it in any of the supported directions.. Read full review
5. Razer DeathAdder Chroma
[Score: 8.9/10] The Razer DeathAdder Chroma gaming mouse is winning rave reviews from many pro gamers. This gaming mouse has a 6400 DPI 4G optical sensor, which enables accurate tracking with zero interpolation. It is the highest native DPI optical sensor available on any gaming mouse today. This ensures mouse movements of up to 200 inches per second and 50g acceleration.
This Razer DeathAdder Chroma is one of the best computer mice for FPS gaming and scores well when it comes to its ergonomic design. You will fall in love with its contours and curves.

6. Logitech G402
[Score: 8.6/10] While starters want a gaming mouse in which they can easily differentiate buttons to perform actions, the Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury FPS is not perfect at this level. For example, backward and forward buttons look identical without many differences, and this is the reason sometimes it is hard to identify which button has to be pressed. However, this will be the issue only when you switch to this mouse. Once you have used it for a few days, this problem should not be on your list.
After all, what matters more when picking up the best FPS gaming mouse is the speed, ease of changing DPI, high DPI, more buttons, and programming features that lets you program different buttons on the mouse as per your ease. One more thing that matters for a gamer is profiled memory within the mouse so that you can take it anywhere and use your favorite settings done with mouse buttons. With these aspects, Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury stands in a good position.. Read full review
7. Mionix Castor
[Score: 8.2/10] The Mionix Castor MNX-01-25001-G is an ergonomic mouse developed by the well-respected Swedish manufacturer of high-performance gaming accessories. It was designed specifically to be used by right-handed gamers and features state-of-the-art hardware that guarantees a top-tier performance.
This FPS mouse is most suited for people with fairly large hands, as it easily accommodates both the claw grip and the palm-style grip. Users with smaller hands will still have a great time using this mouse, but the number of possible grips decreases. One thing that definitely deserves praise about this optical mouse is the fantastic rubber coating. Not only does it help to increase your accuracy, but it also has anti-sweat properties, which make your hands stay dry even in the heat of battle.. Read full review
