Once we find our perfect gaming mouse, we tend to stick with it until the end. I’m talking about that mouse that is a perfect fit for your fingers, that gently rests in your palm, and glides over your mouse mat like Mickey and Minnie on ice. For us lot here at PC Gamer, however, we’re never satiated. We always want the next best thing, and while I’ve loved my time with the Swiftpoint Z and Logitech G Pro Superlight most of all over the years, I know there’s always a better mouse on the horizon.
We’ve been busy throwing around the latest releases in the name of science and gaming. From our tests, we’ve whittled it down to just three gaming mice worthy of the top prize as PC Gamer’s best gaming mouse 2021. That’s the Razer Basilisk V3, SteelSeries Prime Wireless Pro Series, and the Corsair Sabre RGB Pro Champion Series.
All three offer superb sensors able to keep up with even the most aggressive mouse movements, and of course all are built to last. Though the Razer offers style and performance in a wired form factor, the SteelSeries that wireless edge we love, and the Corsair something cheaper that offers the basics done exceptionally well.
Only one can win, however, so let’s get down to the nominees for best gaming mouse in 2021 in greater detail.
Best gaming mouse 2021: the nominees
Those are the three nominees, and the winner of our prestigious best gaming mouse 2021 award will be announced on New Year’s Day. Keep watch for that.
