The right gaming mouse can make all the difference in your gameplay. Whether you’re playing a competitive first-person shooter (FPS), immersing yourself in a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (RPG), or building new worlds with friends, you can enjoy the benefits of a gaming mouse.
In this article, we’re highlighting 5 different HyperX gaming mice from HP® that will give you the edge you need in the games you love to play.
Why use a gaming mouse?
A gaming mouse is different from a regular mouse in a few crucial ways.
Gaming mice feature more buttons than a standard mouse. This additional functionality comes in handy for avid gamers who may need to quickly access game-specific commands or macros.
Gaming mice have a better tracking engine than regular mice. This higher-quality tracking allows you to make more precise movements in-game, often with a 1 ms response rate or less. This is much faster than a regular mouse, which typically has a response rate of 4 ms to 6 ms. The improved tracking is key in competitive games that require speed and precision.
The design of gaming mice is almost always more ergonomic than traditional mice, which allows for more comfortable use. This is key for those who play for extended periods of time because it will reduce the feeling of stress or fatigue in your hand.
5 best HyperX gaming mice
Using a HyperX mouse is a great option for gamers looking to gain a competitive edge in PC gaming. With 5 different models to choose from, HyperX makes it easy to find a mouse that fits your needs based on the style of games you love.
Are you looking for a mouse that feels like it glides across the mouse pad? The HyperX Pulsefire Haste has got you covered. Featuring an ultralight honeycomb design, this wireless gaming mouse weighs a mere 61 grams. Despite its lighter build, the Pulsefire Haste is built to last and will stand up to hours upon hours of gameplay.
The HyperX Pulsefire Haste also boasts TTC Golden micro switches. These micro switches provide a satisfying click every time you press them, and they’re built to keep up with you. In fact, they allow for up to 80 million clicks before you need to replace them.
If you’re searching for a flexible, durable wireless gaming mouse built for elite players, you should consider the HyperX Pulsefire Haste.
As its name suggests, the HyperX Pulsefire Core focuses on creating a well-rounded, core gaming experience. This wired gaming mouse uses a Pixart 3327 optical sensor for smooth tracking with a native 6200 DPI (dots per inch). That high level of movement is perfect for making quick, precise actions – a must for competitive online play.
The Pulsefire Core also comes with 7 programmable buttons, which you can use to create macros in compatible games. They’re built to endure up to 20 million clicks, too, so you can count on this mouse lasting for years.
You can customize the look of this mouse as you see fit with RGB lighting through the HyperX NGENUITY software, which is included with all Pulsefire gaming mice.
If you want to play like the pros, you need great gaming gear like the HyperX PulseFire FPS Pro to get you there. True to its namesake, this mouse will help you refine your FPS skills. And with a 16,000 DPI, it delivers the precision and accuracy you need to hit your targets before your opponent knows what even happened.
You’ll also love the premium Pixart 3389 sensor, which provides fluid and responsive mouse tracking. This sensor gives the mouse a 12,000 frame rate and a tracking speed of 400 IPS, among other features. Plus, the included dual Omron switches add a level of feedback and durability you won’t find in other gaming mice.
For those who prefer wireless gaming mice, look no further than the HyperX Pulsefire Dart and its incredibly reliable 2.4GHz connection. The mouse uses RF technology, too, so you can enjoy a range of nearly 33 feet.
More than just a PC gaming mouse, the Pulsefire Dart is compatible with the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles. So if you’re a console gamer who wants to compete in PC lobbies in Apex Legends or Call of Duty: Warzone, you’ll love this mouse.
To add to its wireless reliability, the HyperX Pulsefire Dart comes with a Qi wireless charger. It provides up to 50 hours of battery life, so it’s ready to go when you are. You can also use the included charging cable to charge your mouse as you play.
The ergonomic design with padded leatherette grips gives it a comfortable feel, while the native DPI of up to 16,000 gives it the speed and precision you need.
Best HyperX gaming mousepads
Even the best gaming mouse is only as good as the mousepad you use with it. To help you get the most out of your new HyperX gaming mouse, we put together this list of the top 3 HyperX gaming mousepads.
If you have a dedicated gaming desk and want to cover it with a premium mousepad, you need the HyperX Fury S XL mousepad. With its dimensions of 900 x 420 x 4 mm, you can cover a large surface area with ease and have plenty of room for your keyboard and monitor.
You’ll be in complete control with this gaming mousepad, which boasts seamless, anti-fray stitched edges and a close-knit surface for enhanced tracking. The natural rubber underside holds up well under duress while delivering wrist comfort and a stable base for your movement.
The HyperX Fury S L gaming mousepad is perfect for gamers on a budget and with a limited playing area. It’s also super portable with a lightweight (.025 ounces) and condensed dimensions (0.15 x 9.4 x 11.42 in). But like its larger counterpart, the HyperX Fury S L features a similar densely woven and textured surface with a natural rubber underside.
With its bold red and black color scheme, the HyperX Fury S Speed Edition evokes a sense of speed and competitiveness. Plus, the dimensions (17.7 x 15.75 x 0.16 in) make it the perfect middle ground between the Fury S XL and Fury S L options.
The HyperX Fury S Speed Edition is also specifically designed to create less friction, so your mouse seamlessly glides as you play. This is ideal for games that require both speed and precision, such as battle royales, where every millisecond counts.
HyperX gaming mice represent a major evolution in the world of gaming accessories. For competitive gamers who focus on FPSs, we recommend the HyperX Pulsefire FPS Pro. If you want to show off your style when you play, consider the HyperX Pulsefire Surge. And if you’re all about going wireless, you can’t beat the HyperX Pulsefire Dart. Whichever HyperX mouse you choose, the 5 in this guide will help take your competitive gaming skills to the next level.
