Shootout: The best FPS gaming mouse for competitive Overwatch

By James Lu - 27 Aug 2017

Winner and Scores

And the best competitive FPS gaming mouse is...

 

Zowie FK1

The Zowie FK1 may not have the flashy RGB lighting or advanced software of some of the other mice in our shootout but it honestly doesn’t need it. It just works, and its simple design and elegant plug-and-play functionality means that you never have to worry about driver issues or malfunctioning software, whether you’re at home or at a LAN gaming session.

Zowie is also the only brand that offers the same mouse in a variety of sizes, so you can find the one that best suits you exact hand size and grip style. Finally, we loved the FK1’s crisp Huano switches, which never suffer from accidental double-clicks like the lighter Omron switches favored by Razer and Logitech. We could easily have chosen Zowie's EC1-A as the winner too, as all of Zowie's mice are very similar, you just have to find the size and shape that best fits your hand and grip.
