The Top 7 Best Left Handed Gaming Mice of 2020 

While many gamers never think about how often they use right-handed gaming gear, left-handed gamers have to live with the challenging of using gear that’s just not designed for them. Estimates say anywhere from 10%-25% of the population is left-handed and unfortunately, this leaves those who are left-handed forced to adapt to right-handed methods every single day.

Gaming companies simply don’t cater to left-handed individuals yet. In fact, it’s so common to ignore the need for specialized left-handed or at least ambidextrous products, that finding a left-handed gaming mouse seems all but impossible.

That’s why we created this guide. We sifted through hundreds of products from the premier manufacturers in gaming mice to find options for the left-handed gamers among us. It’s a sobering experience for those who take being right-handed for granted to see the glut of right-handed only options and the small amount of available left-handed gaming mice.

The peripherals industry has ultimately decided on neutral ambidextrous mice as the most viable solution to creating left-handed gaming mice. It’s a unique compromise that offers very high-quality options yet lacks in allowing left-handed gamers to have a product designed for them that works for them.

Below you’ll find our list of the best left-handed friendly mice on the market. If you know all about gaming mice, just skip down below and look at our picks! If you are still wondering about what makes gaming mice better than traditional mice, pop on down to our buying guide where we’ll walk you through all the details and get you started!

Here are the best left handed gaming mice of 2020:

Our Two Favorite Mice

Normally when comparing products we pick just one overall favorite. Due to the lack of left-handed gaming mice on the market though, we selected our favorite left-handed mouse and our favorite ambidextrous mouse. Most high-quality mice tend to be ambidextrous with few real left focused options but we hope this will change in the coming years.

1. Razer Death Adder Essential - The Best Left-Handed Gaming Mouse

Our overall favorite left-handed gaming mouse

As the only TRUE left-handed only gaming mouse, the Death Adder Essential could slack off knowing it is one of the only options available for lefties. Instead, Razer designed a true dedicated gaming mouse for left-handed people. Instead of buying this solely because it works for lefties, it’s a formidable mouse that can take on any mouse on this list.

It is truly designed for those who are left-handed though instead of caving to the ambidextrous market. The Essential’s chief opponent, the G903, is clearly better in overall quality but lacks the genuine left-handed focus of the Essential that makes it special. This mouse is good enough for esports and a serious piece of gaming gear.

Our Thoughts

Death Adder is a classic mouse line from Razer that offers esports quality at a modest price. Razer released the left-handed Death Adder Essential in 2012 as the first-ever left-handed gaming mouse. Death Adder mice can commonly be seen today at the highest levels of competition. The DA Essential is a stripped down version of the best quality esports mice that razer produces. Don’t think for a second though that this is a second-rate left-handed mouse. The DA Essential has amazing design, accuracy, and durability. The Essential is smooth and responsive while also feeling really comfortable.

Razer also offers proprietary software that gives you the freedom to create profiles, reprogram buttons, and program macros. The Essential uses the last generation Razer software, Synapse 2.0, a diverse program that unlocks the major perks of the gaming mouse. It’s a little older but allows you to change this mouse into a powerful gaming tool.

Left-handed gamers often miss out on being able to reach the very buttons on right-handed gaming mice. With the Essentials you can set-up unique profiles for each game, save your sensitivity (A must if you switch between shooters regularly) and even write complex macros. It’s powerful software that’ll you’ll love to use.

So what’s not to like? The biggest drawback is the button count. There are only two side buttons that you’ll have available and that might be a dealbreaker for some. Secondly, this is an older mouse. Newer Gaming Mice have some REALLY neat features and incredible DPI but they also cost a bit more and as an everyday gamer, you may find custom DPI buttons aren’t really in your wheelhouse. This is the best mouse to pick up for the price if you are left-handed but won’t offer cutting-edge features like custom weights.

2. Logitech G300s - The Best Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse

Overall this is the BEST mouse on the market today for a variety of reasons. The ambidextrous form factor, wireless ability, and professional quality make it an easy decision for the best gaming mouse a left-handed gamer can buy. We had nothing but good things to say about the G903. It’s far below as one of the best High-end mice options.

The Razer Naga Left-Handed Edition is coming back!

Vae says

The Razer DA Essential is an ergo right handed mouse so i dunno how it can be the best for left handers… There was the left handed Razer DA, but that has been out of stock for months and is outdated (sensor with super high LOD) in relation to other models Razer offers.

    Daan says

    You’re absolutely right. The actual left-handed version is the DA Left-Handed Edition, but that one’s hard to get a hold of at times, so we changed it. Now we’ve changed it back, because it doesn’t make much sense to have a right-handed mouse beat all the lefties, does it? Thanks, Vae!
