(Pocket-lint) - Os ratos para jogos são os dispositivos topo de gama do mundo dos ratos. Eles são projetados para serem mais precisos, oferecem uma experiência mais confortável e são feitos para durar - já que os jogadores tendem a passar mais tempo com o mouse do que qualquer outra pessoa.

Os mouses de última geração também possuem vários botões, precisão de pontos por polegada (DPI) altamente ajustáveis e uma grande quantidade de configurações que incluem desde iluminação customizada até macros para jogos específicos.

No entanto, encontrar o mouse certo para você pode ser complicado. As pessoas os seguram de maneiras diferentes e têm mãos de tamanhos diferentes, o que torna a compra um negócio complicado. Um mouse largo com apoios de polegar e alças pode ser perfeito para alguém com mãos grandes, mas outros podem achar preferível um mouse pequeno e elegante, tanto em termos de ajuste quanto de agilidade.

Nós examinamos uma variedade de ratos para jogos para ver quais são os melhores, levando em consideração tudo o que os jogadores mais amam - RGB, capacidade de resposta, número de botões e, claro, valor para o dinheiro.

Testamos esses mouses de várias maneiras, incluindo horas de jogo e também para utilizá-los no trabalho diário e nas tarefas de produtividade. Nós examinamos e brincamos com as configurações e nos certificamos de testar completamente os recursos também. A seguir está uma análise de nossos ratos favoritos e daqueles que consideramos os melhores que você pode comprar atualmente.


Nosso mouse para jogos favorito atualmente é o Corsair M65 RGB Ultra Wireless . Existem outras opções que vale a pena considerar também, incluindo o Razer Basilisk Ultimate , o Logitech G Pro X Superlight , o Razer Naga Pro e o Asus ROG Gladius III Wireless .

Nossa escolha do melhor mouse para jogos pode ser muito pesada para alguns, mas tudo bem, pois existem outras opções. O Logitech G Pro X Superlight é uma dessas opções.

Se você não se incomoda em ter babados, sinos e assobios desnecessários, então olhe nesta direção. Este é um mouse para jogos elegante, leve e sem fio que possui pés de PTFE deslizantes, bateria com até 70 horas de duração e design discreto.

Este é um mouse para jogos sério projetado para profissionais, que tem a emoção de ser leve, mas sem o invólucro de favo de mel usual. É incrivelmente ágil e incrivelmente preciso também. A única desvantagem é a falta de botão de alternância de DPI, mas você pode personalizar DPI e outras configurações de botão no software .

Este mouse aparentemente tenta atender a todos com um design interessante que não só tem tudo o que você esperaria de um mouse para jogos, mas também tem botões laterais que podem ser trocados, o que significa que você pode alterar o acesso ao botão do polegar dependendo do que está jogando.

Dois botões laterais para FPS ou 12 para MMO / MOBAs a escolha é sua.

O Naga Pro emociona em outras áreas também. Uma delas é a capacidade de se conectar nos modos com fio, Bluetooth ou sem fio. No Bluetooth, com a iluminação RGB desligada, você também pode obter até 150 horas de vida útil da bateria.

Jogue em cinco perfis de memória onboard, cinco níveis de DPI personalizados, pés 100% PTFE e um sensor óptico Pixart e você tem uma potência de jogo real.

How to choose the right gaming mouse for you

Obviously, there's a lot to consider when buying a gaming mouse. Trying to find the right one for you can be tricky as there are all sorts of mice in all manner of shapes and sizes with different specs and features on offer. It can be hard to know what matters or what you'll like. 

Specs that matter

You'll find all gaming mice have a number of specs worth paying attention to. These include max acceleration and max speed numbers. Usually the higher these numbers the better. Along with a good sensor, these specs ensure good tracking and accurate representation of your mouse movements and the ability to keep up with your quick flicks. 

You'll also find the best mice often have insanely high DPI levels. Many of Logitech's mice, for example, boast as much as 25,600 DPI. The company says that its sensors and these DPI levels allow the mouse to "...accurately track movement at the sub-micron level (1 micron = 1 millionth of a meter, or 0.000001m). Without compromising on accuracy."

Realistically, most gamers will find that 25,000 DPI is far too much for standard use. Indeed even the pro gamers will opt for lower DPI, lightweight mice or set their mice to low DPI levels. Still having a good DPI range offers a lot of flexibility. 

Grip type

There are three main grip types - palm grip, claw grip and fingertip grip. Some mice are designed to cater to all types while others are only suitable for one or two. SteelSeries has a nice guide to the different grip types and that's worth reading if you don't know how your hold your mouse already. 

If you use a palm grip, then you'll often need a larger mouse or you'll find the mouse is too small and uncomfortable to use. Smaller mice might only cater to claw grip and won't be suitable, so this is an important point of consideration before you buy. 

How many buttons do you need?

Most modern gaming mice sport somewhere between six and eight buttons. These usually include the left and right buttons, mouse wheel, two side buttons and maybe a couple of DPI level buttons.

This setup might be enough for most gamers - especially if you're mostly playing FPS games. But if you are more of a MOBA, MMO or RPG gamer then you might like to consider a mouse with more buttons. That'll make life easier to carry out actions, combine in-game abilities and generally win. 

Having more buttons isn't always better though. We've found some mice offer buttons on both sides of the frame, but that can be problematic as you might accidentally activate these buttons when you don't mean to, which can be a real pain. So think about which buttons you need and whether you actually need more before you commit to a purchase. 

Ultra-light? 

The latest trend for gaming mice is to shed as much weight as possible and offer up large super slick PTFE areas to help you game. These lightweight mice mean you can run a low DPI but still flick them about quickly and easily. Pro players swear by these mice. They obviously have the added bonus of reducing any aches or fatigue you might otherwise get with heavier mice. 

One downside though is the lighter mice often feel cheap, sound hollow and aren't as feature-rich. If you prefer your mouse to have a bit of heft and a premium solid build quality then there's nothing wrong with that. Some of the heavier mice also have a lot more to offer, not just RGB but more buttons, wireless connectivity and more.

Ultra-light? 

The latest trend for gaming mice is to shed as much weight as possible and offer up large super slick PTFE areas to help you game. These lightweight mice mean you can run a low DPI but still flick them about quickly and easily. Pro players swear by these mice. They obviously have the added bonus of reducing any aches or fatigue you might otherwise get with heavier mice. 

One downside though is the lighter mice often feel cheap, sound hollow and aren't as feature-rich. If you prefer your mouse to have a bit of heft and a premium solid build quality then there's nothing wrong with that. Some of the heavier mice also have a lot more to offer, not just RGB but more buttons, wireless connectivity and more. 

How to choose the right gaming mouse for you

Obviously, there's a lot to consider when buying a gaming mouse. Trying to find the right one for you can be tricky as there are all sorts of mice in all manner of shapes and sizes with different specs and features on offer. It can be hard to know what matters or what you'll like. 

Specs that matter

You'll find all gaming mice have a number of specs worth paying attention to. These include max acceleration and max speed numbers. Usually the higher these numbers the better. Along with a good sensor, these specs ensure good tracking and accurate representation of your mouse movements and the ability to keep up with your quick flicks. 

You'll also find the best mice often have insanely high DPI levels. Many of Logitech's mice, for example, boast as much as 25,600 DPI. The company says that its sensors and these DPI levels allow the mouse to "...accurately track movement at the sub-micron level (1 micron = 1 millionth of a meter, or 0.000001m). Without compromising on accuracy."

Realistically, most gamers will find that 25,000 DPI is far too much for standard use. Indeed even the pro gamers will opt for lower DPI, lightweight mice or set their mice to low DPI levels. Still having a good DPI range offers a lot of flexibility. 

Grip type

There are three main grip types - palm grip, claw grip and fingertip grip. Some mice are designed to cater to all types while others are only suitable for one or two. SteelSeries has a nice guide to the different grip types and that's worth reading if you don't know how your hold your mouse already. 

If you use a palm grip, then you'll often need a larger mouse or you'll find the mouse is too small and uncomfortable to use. Smaller mice might only cater to claw grip and won't be suitable, so this is an important point of consideration before you buy. 

How many buttons do you need?

Most modern gaming mice sport somewhere between six and eight buttons. These usually include the left and right buttons, mouse wheel, two side buttons and maybe a couple of DPI level buttons.

This setup might be enough for most gamers - especially if you're mostly playing FPS games. But if you are more of a MOBA, MMO or RPG gamer then you might like to consider a mouse with more buttons. That'll make life easier to carry out actions, combine in-game abilities and generally win. 

Having more buttons isn't always better though. We've found some mice offer buttons on both sides of the frame, but that can be problematic as you might accidentally activate these buttons when you don't mean to, which can be a real pain.
