The Best Left-Handed Gaming Mice in 2022

Nobody likes to be forced to use incorrect gaming accessories. While some gamers might enjoy seeing how far they can get using a Guitar Hero controller or something even more ridiculous, most of us will enjoy playing with decent, appropriate equipment.

Thankfully, there are some choices. There are quite a few ambidextrous mice that may be used for right-handed and left-handed gamers alike. Some don’t mirror all of the buttons, but some do, allowing you to take advantage of thumb buttons, which can significantly improve popping abilities in video games.

Unfortunately, left-handed-specific mice are much less common. They occasionally appear, but stock seems to disappear quickly. Thus, we’ve listed our top options here, so be aware that you might want to move quickly if you see them in stock.

01 Razer Naga Left-Handed Edition

There are other factors to take into account when evaluating the Razer Naga’s performance in addition to its speed and accuracy. But to focus on those two issues for a second, the Naga is an outstanding gaming mouse, much like the majority of Razer’s lineup. At rates of up to 650 inches per second, the Razer Focus+ Optical Sensor can give 20,000 DPI sensitivity with 99.6% resolution accuracy.

Although a wired mouse is less user-friendly, it successfully eliminates latency problems. You’ll be able to sense its pace. Particularly when used with a Razer mouse mat. Thankfully, you can adjust the sensitivity using the Razer app to get it just right. When using all those customizable buttons in-game, the Razer Naga performs at its very best. Beware, it can be a little intimidating at first. Getting all the buttons functioning properly for each game will take some time and perhaps even some trial and error.

But once you’ve got it set up how you want, it’s a real game-changer, whether you’re playing an FPS, an RTS, or an MMO. Your ability to utilize both hands while playing games will increase if you can convert many of your keyboard shortcuts to mouse shortcuts.

Pros

  • 20 programmable buttons
  • Fast and precise
  • Comfortable for long sessions

Cons

  • Takes some getting used to
  • Wired option only
  • Little bulky for small hands

Specification

  • Price $159.95
  • Hand Orientation Ambidextrous
  • DPI 8200
  • Product Dimensions ‎4.87 x 2.94 x 1.69 inches
  • Item Weight ‎4.8 ounces

02 SteelSeries Sensei Ten

The Sensei Ten maintains simplicity and smoothness in a gaming hardware market full of jagged edges and hole-punched shell designs. The eight-button ambidextrous design follows the conventional button configuration, with two main clickers, a scroll wheel, and a resolution-switching button on top, as well as two shortcut buttons on each side. It is expected that you will only press the side buttons that are in line with your thumb. It is a six-button mouse in actuality.

The Sensei Ten doesn’t offer many unique features aside from its appearance, like the majority of mice created for competitive esports. Mice designed for competition typically have fewer features because pros care more about things like having a physically light mouse because macros and sophisticated functions are frequently not tournament-approved. The Sensei Ten is a pretty light mouse in that aspect, but it is clearly not the lightest one you can find. It weighs 3.3 ounces, which is more than its two biggest rivals in esports, the Razer Viper (2.4 ounces) and the Logitech G Pro (2.9 ounces).

The difference may appear minor, and the Sensei Ten feels quite light in the hand, but if you think that a lighter draw weight will result in a faster draw, the Sensei falls short of these two. Except for the very best players, comfort and fit are significantly more important. The Sensei Ten is 1.5 x 2.7 x 5 inches (HWD) and has a slick, cozy design that is enjoyable to use in all kinds of games.

Pros

  • Sleek, ambidextrous design pleases both lefties and righties in a household
  • Precise sensor
  • Design fit for work or play
  • Solid software

Cons

  • A bit expensive

Specification

  • Price $45.99
  • Hand Orientation Ambidextrous
  • DPI 50–18000
  • Product Dimensions ‎4.94 x 2.7 x 1.54 inches
  • Item Weight ‎3.2 ounces

03 Corsair Katar Pro XT

A straightforward right-handed gaming mouse is the Katar Pro XT. Six buttons are on it, all in the typical locations. Two click panels, a scroll wheel, and a DPI-cycle button are all located on the top. There are back and forward buttons on the thumb side. The mouse is sturdy and is made of bland, black, molded plastic. It has only a few distinguishing features, like an RGB scroll wheel, raised plastic side handles, and the name // KTXT printed in a tiny, delicate typeface.

Its size and shape are striking, though. The chassis of the Katar Pro XT tapers on all sides to a rather narrow tip. The mouse’s small base may prevent your thumb from being supported if you hold it with a conventional grip. This forces you to clutch the mouse tightly, which is awkward to use during extended PC gaming sessions. An ambidextrous mouse, like the Razer Viper, which forgoes ergonomic considerations to accommodate right- and left-handed persons, is typically the only one with a symmetrical design.

Its superior lightness over the competitors is a plus. The Katar Pro XT belongs to the esports-focused, “ultralight” category and weighs 2.7 ounces. That’s especially crucial if you play video games using your claws and fingertip movements rather than using your entire arm to move the mouse. Normally, I’d think this is just another instance of a mouse maker going too far to lighten a mouse for spec-obsessed, competitive players, but considering the mouse’s strong preference for alternative grips, it makes a little more sense in this case.

Pros

  • Useful, tapered base if you prefer a claw-and-fingertip grip
  • Lightweight design
  • Useful configuration software
  • Affordably priced

Cons

  • Small size and the tapered base doesn’t offer much thumb support in standard (palm) grip
  • Lacks distinguishing features

Specification

  • Price $32.95
  • Hand Orientation Ambidextrous
  • DPI 18,000
  • Product Dimensions ‎4.5 x 7 x 2.25 inches
  • Item Weight ‎2.57 ounces

04 Logitech G903

Since it was released last year, the Logitech G900 has ruled as the undeniable king of wireless gaming mice. With the Logitech G903, a successor has already been found. This may come off as an unnecessary sequel to certain people, though. One of the final drawbacks of wireless gaming mice, meanwhile, might be resolved by its capacity to continuously draw power from Logitech’s new PowerPlay mouse pad.

The Logitech G903 costs roughly $149, which is a lot to pay for a gaming mouse alone, and the PowerPlay costs an additional $99 to acquire this winning combination. This is an expensive setup all in all. The performance of Logitech’s premium wireless gaming mouse and the ease of the wireless charging pad is worth every penny, in our opinion.

The Logitech G903’s physical differences from its predecessor are minimal. The Logitech G900 now has all-black accents in place of its gunmetal gray-colored components. The mouse now has a more uniform appearance, but we would have preferred it if Logitech had left the soft touch coating on the front edge of the device, which provided us with an additional bit of texture for our ring finger to rest against.

The Logitech G903 has seen the biggest change, adding a puck-shaped chamber. You have two options here: you can either attach a “PowerCore” module or a 10-gram weight. Not that we’re complaining, but the Logitech G903’s body form hasn’t changed in any other ways. The G903 is compatible with a wide range of hand sizes because of its long body and gentle curves that let our hands rest easily on them. The mouse never actually slipped out of our hands despite the lack of surfaces covered in rubber or soft-touch material.

Pros

  • Solid build quality
  • Accurate and reliable wireless
  • Unique wireless charging technology

Cons

  • Exorbitantly expensive

Specification

  • Price $99.99
  • Hand Orientation Ambidextrous
  • DPI 12,000
  • Product Dimensions ‎2.83 x 6.89 x 5.35 inches
  • Item Weight ‎3.77 ounces

05 SteelSeries Sensei 310

Several SteelSeries Rival mice, especially the new Rival 310, have these distinguishing features. These include the attractive matte-black coloration, the ridge down the middle, the shape of the break dividing the plastic faceplate, the location of the logo, and even the rubber-coated cord. With dimensions of 4.9 inches in length, 2.8 inches in width, and 1.5 inches in height, the Sensei 310 is designed to fit a medium-sized to a big hand. The vertical arch’s high point, which crests under the knuckles closest to the palm, feels like it drops off heavily in this picture. When holding the Sensei 310 in a palm grip, which we find more comfortable than a less ergonomic claw grip, it requires a medium-sized hand to extend a little further in order to reach the scroll wheel.

All other flaws aside, those with average-sized hands should try this mouse out in person rather than relying on the Sensei 310’s length as an indication of how well it can fit their hands. This isn’t a problem if you have huge mitts. The Sensei 310 is a good entry into the market for high-end optical gaming mice. It is ambidextrous, which means that the horizontal arch is not optimal for ergonomics, and the scroll wheel is too far forward for the average hand—unless you like a claw grip. The Sensei 310 is a mouse that warrants your attention if you have large hands and are an avid gamer. Priced sensibly, this mouse will rank among the best if SteelSeries ever gets around to including lift control and other DPI levels.

Pros

  • Shaped for lefties and righties alike.
  • Attractive, solid design, yet light.
  • Hair-trigger Omron switches and good optical sensor.
  • Support for acceleration, deceleration, angle snapping.

Cons

  • Only two DPI settings.
  • No lift-distance control.
  • Best for big hands.

Specification

  • Price $49.99
  • Hand Orientation Ambidextrous
  • DPI 12,000
  • Product Dimensions 4.93 x 2.77 x 1.53 inches
  • Item Weight 4.9 ounces

06 Razer Viper 8KHz

It should feel like an old friend when using the Razer Viper 8K. The original Razer Viper was one of my all-time favorite mice, so this is a great alternative to replace it with. It is a medium-sized, ultralight mouse that fits well in the palm, claw, or fingertip of gamers of all grip styles (71 grams). Thanks to its 8-button ambidextrous design, this adaptability also applies to being a right or left-handed person.

Razer’s most recent Focus+ sensor has been added to the Viper 8K’s hardware. It represents a significant performance improvement on paper. The DPI has been raised from 16K to 20K, the top speed is now 650 inches per second, and the accuracy is now reportedly “industry best” at 99.6%. In actuality, these upgrades won’t mean much to the typical gamer, just to competitive esports pros or those wanting to enter the field. This sensor also includes Razer’s Motion Sync technology, which increases accuracy by synchronizing the polling rate of the mouse with the rate at which the host PC checks for updates. In comparison to the original Razer Viper, Viper 8K does provide a superior gaming experience. 

Pros

  • A strong, ambidextrous design
  • Extraordinary polling rate
  • Very lightweight

Cons

  • Expensive for an esports mouse
  • Hyperpolling works better with higher-end PCs, so performance may vary

Specification

  • Price $49.87
  • Hand Orientation Ambidextrous
  • DPI 20,000
  • Product Dimensions ‎2.61 x 4.99 x 1.49 inches
  • Item Weight ‎2.5 ounces
