You would be surprised at how many gamers aren’t right-handed, which begs the question, why don’t more manufacturers make left-handed mice? And why is picking the best left-handed gaming mouse is so difficult?
There are just not that many options out there. And there are some manufacturers that tried to offer something, but failed. Just look at Razer’s left-handed DeathAdder, when’s the last time you’ve seen it anywhere?
This just makes it trickier for left-handed gamers, which is why we’ve made a list of the best left-handed gaming mouse options out there. There are some left-handed ones, as well as some ambidextrous mice, so there’s definitely something for everyone. But first …
When you’re looking for a left-handed gaming mouse, there are a couple of things you should look out for.
The first one is to answer the question, is ambidextrous an option? Ambidextrous mice are usually symmetrical on both sides. Therefore, left-handed users can use them just as well as right-handed ones. However, they’re not “made” for a left-handed user, which means you won’t find a lot of ergonomic features with them. This is a matter of preference. But if you can work with an ambidextrous mouse, you will have a lot more options to choose from.
The other big thing is to consider whether you go wired or wireless. In this day and age, there’s plenty of wireless mice that perform just as well as wired ones. There’s no latency, and tracking and accuracy are just as good as a wired one with a good sensor. However, note that you’ll need to pay a bit extra if you go wireless.
Last but not least, see whether or not you’re looking for a mouse with many customizable buttons or a simpler model. This makes a huge difference in both price, and models you can look at. Make sure you know what you’ll be using the mouse for.
Now that we have those few things out of the way, let’s take a look at some of the best left-handed gaming mouse models out there. They’re all great picks, and it’s a matter of choosing the one that fits you best.
Logitech’s G Pro Wireless has been the crowd favorite for the past couple of years, and it made sense to include it on our list.
This Lightspeed wireless mouse comes with Logitech’s Hero sensor, which can be updated to 25K DPI via a software update. It tracks incredibly well, which is why a lot of FPS pros adore this mouse and enjoy using it.
You do get a symmetrical shape with two side buttons on each side. All are customizable using Logitech’s G HUB software. There is RGB backlight on the logo, which looks nice. Oh, and the entire mouse comes in at an impressive weight of only 80 grams.
Factor in the excellent power efficiency which lets you use this for quite some time before you need to charge it. Overall, you’re looking at a brilliant wireless mouse for left-handed users.
SteelSeries’ Sensei Ten is a revival of their extremely popular Sensei mouse. It has one goal – be simple, lightweight, and perform admirably. Since this is an ambidextrous mouse, we have no problem recommending it in our list of best left-handed gaming mouse models.
The sensor is SteelSeries’ TrueMove Pro with 1 to 1 tracking, and oh boy is it accurate. Zero acceleration and up to 18,000 DPI make this a beautiful mouse for gaming.
You get 8 programmable buttons that you can set up just as you like. The main buttons come with mechanical switches rated at over 60 million clicks. The entire mouse is made with durable materials such as a high-grade polymer, and SteelSeries has a reputation for durable shells.
When you consider the onboard memory and RGB lights, this becomes an excellent choice for just about any left-handed user.
Unfortunately, the Razer Naga is one of the only mice that’s made specifically for left-handed users and is the only one we’d recommend. The buttons are moved to the right, as they should be. There is a place to rest your palm on the left side – this is an excellent mouse in regards to ergonomics. We featured one of its other options on our list of best MMO gaming mice, too.
With the 12 programmable thumb buttons, this is perfect for MMO games. Or, any other situation where you might need a lot of macros or complex operations. There is also an 8200 DPI sensor inside that’s very accurate and tracks incredibly well.
And while this is a wired mouse, it comes with a cord that you’ll barely feel because it has zero drag. Overall, it’s an excellent choice for anyone who specifically wants a left-handed mouse, and needs a few extra buttons.
Even before BenQ acquired Zowie, Zowie had some of the world’s best FPS mice. The ZA12 is no exception, being an ambidextrous mouse that looks pretty barebones. However, it is actually a true weapon in the hands of the right player.
Inside the ZA12 is a PixArt 3310 sensor that goes up to 3200 DPI. You can adjust DPI with a button on the bottom of the mouse. There is no need for software, which makes this an even simpler mouse, and there are side buttons on both sides.
The buttons have just the right tactility. You can adjust the mouse’s polling rate if you want to play around with the levels of responsiveness. When you factor in that this is one of the most accurate and simple plug-and-play mice, it’s easy to see why FPS players will love using it.
Not everyone has the same criteria for the best left-handed gaming mouse, which is why Logitech’s G903 Lightspeed is a wireless, modular option that you can set up as you see fit.
On the outside of this fairly complex shell, you have side buttons that you can remove (or add) as you wish, and a host of carefully placed buttons that you can program with their G HUB software. The logo is RGB backlit, and you can set it to sync with various features in your games, too.
The sensor is Logitech’s HERO sensor that you can update to 25,000 DPI via software, and it tracks very well. The Lightspeed wireless makes sure there is zero latency, and this works just like a wired mouse. If you want the best left-handed gaming mouse that allows you plenty of customization, this is the one.
If you’re on a limited budget, Corsair’s M55 RGB Pro is a great choice. At a more than reasonable price, you get all the nice things you’d expect from a high-quality mouse, in an ambidextrous design that’s great for left-handed users.
There are side buttons on both sides, and you can program them with macros and remaps as you see fit. The main buttons come with Omron switches for durability, and while we’re talking durability, you also get a braided cable, too. Did we mention the overall weight is just 86 grams? That’s pretty lightweight.
Inside is a rather accurate optical sensor that goes up to 12,400 DPI and tracks pretty well. It’s great for everything from slower-paced games, to fast-paced shooters that require incredible reaction times. The mouse has an RGB backlit logo and is overall a great package for the price.
“Light” is the name of the game with Razer’s Viper Ultimate, an ambidextrous mouse that comes at a midrange price and offers premium performance.
On the outside, you have a pretty simple design, which is a thing we love about the Viper Ultimate. There’s nothing flashy about it except for the RGB logo. It is incredibly lightweight, though, at only 74 grams, which is really impressive for a wireless mouse. There are a total of 8 programmable buttons in a symmetrical layout, and the main ones come with optical switches that actuate incredibly quickly.
The sensor inside is Razer’s 20,000 DPI optical sensor that’s perfect for serious gaming. And with HyperSpeed wireless, the Viper Ultimate performs just as good as a wired mouse. All things considered, if you want a great performer that’s very lightweight and capable, the Viper Ultimate is a surprisingly good choice.
