Gaming Mouse Recommendations

Post by Nate » Wed Jan 24, 2018 8:48 am

I wore my last mouse out (a Tt eSPORTS mouse that lasted me quite a while) and will be looking at buying a new one tomorrow to use primarily with a rig running Arch, but also with my Mint 2 in 1 as trackpads are awful for any type of game. I don't really have much experience with what's available these days and so was wondering if any of you have any gaming mice you'd recommend along with what you like about them. I am fairly heavy handed, so bear in mind that good construction and durability is a definite advantage.

Just a follow up, I ended up just taking my phone with me shopping, looked up linux drivers for most of the mice that caught my eye and first thought I was going to wind up dry with a few frustrating moments where the manufacturer had other mice that drivers existed for, but those were not in stores. eventually found that a good many Razer (not my usual choice admittedly) mice have this option available https://openrazer.github.io . Ended up getting a Naga Hex V2 at a heavy discount and have it working perfectly. so if you're in the market for a gaming mouse, looking at that github project page will give you a fair few options with great support. :D
