Best professional esports mice for CS:GO

Picking the right mouse and knowing which one will help you best is hard. It is often a good idea to look at the professionals and see which peripherals they choose to use in competition.
Two brands, ZOWIE by BenQ and Logitech, are consistent throughout the best CS:GO teams in the world right now. There are other familiar names that make an appearance throughout the player list.

First, we will look at the popular brands on the list and the most-picked mouse they produce. Afterwards, a breakdown for each team and their players' chosen mice will follow.

1. ZOWIE: 28 players (56%)

Top mouse = ZOWIE by BenQ EC2-A and EC2-B

With 12 players using either mouse, this is a clear favourite for professional CS:GO players right now.

There are also eight further players using the EC1, a larger variant of the EC2 model, as well as eight others using the FK1, FK2, ZA13 and other less common mice.

ZOWIE have been a popular choice for some time within the CS:GO scene and it is no surprise to see them leading the total.

2. Logitech: 10 players (20%)

Top mouse = Logitech G703

The Logitech G703 is the mouse of choice for three players, while variety in the brand's offerings sees different pros picking mice that suit them best.

Logitech G Pro Wireless, G400S, G402, G403 and MX518 Legendary all also make an appearance in the top 10.

3. Razer: Three players (6%)

Top mouse = Razer DeathAdder Elite

While Razer is still a recognisable peripheral brand, their prominence in the hands of pros has dropped off significantly.

Two players, David "frozen" Čerňanský of mousesports and Cédric "RpK" Guipouy of Team Vitality, are still using the DeathAdder Elite.

The remaining Razer mouse is Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz's Razer Lancehead.

 

Top 10 team mouse breakdown

Astralis

  • ZOWIE by BenQ EC2-A (magisk)
  • ZOWIE by BenQ EC2-A (gla1ve)
  • ZOWIE by BenQ EC2-B (device)
  • ZOWIE by BenQ FK2 (dupreeh)
  • ZOWIE by BenQ FK2 (xyp9x)

While the Danes are sponsored by Logitech, ZOWIE reigns supreme in realm of mice.

With two players on the EC2-A and FK2 respectively, device is unique as the only player to opt for the EC2-B instead.

mousesports

  • Dream Machines DM2 Comfy (chrisJ)
  • Logitech G403 (karrigan)
  • Razer DeathAdder Elite (frozen)
  • SteelSeries Sensei RAW (woxic)
  • ZOWIE by BenQ EC2-A (ropz)

Considering the origins of this mousesports roster, it makes sense that the misfits have a mixture of mice that they play with.

While Robin "ropz" Kool uses the popular ZOWIE, Chris "chrisJ" de Jong opts for the more obscure Dream Machines DM2 Comfy.

Team Liquid

  • Logitech G Pro Wireless (ELiGE)
  • ZOWIE by BenQ EC1-B (NAF)
  • ZOWIE by BenQ EC2-A (nitr0)
  • ZOWIE by BenQ EC2-B (Twistzz)
  • ZOWIE by BenQ ZA13 (Stewie2k)

NAF uses the EC1, which is a smaller variety of mouse compared to his teammates EC2s.

ELiGE selected a wireless Logitech G Pro and is one of only a handful of top pros to do so.

Fnatic

  • Logitech G703 (flusha)
  • ZOWIE by BenQ EC1-B (KRIMZ)
  • ZOWIE by BenQ EC2-A (Brollan)
  • ZOWIE by BenQ EC2-B (JW)
  • ZOWIE by BenQ ZA13 (Golden)

Another Logitech mouse denies ZOWIE a clean sweep, with flusha's G703 as the outlier.

Evil Geniuses

  • Logitech G400S (tarik)
  • Logitech G Pro Wireless (Ethan)
  • Razer Lancehead (stanislaw)
  • ZOWIE by BenQ EC2-A (CeRq)
  • ZOWIE by BenQ EC2-B (Brehze)

The unusual Razer Lancehead in the hands of stanislaw is one of only three Razer products in the hands of a top ten team player right now.

Team Vitality

  • Logitech G402 (apEX)
  • Razer Deathadder Elite (RpK)
  • Xtrfy M4 (ZywOo)
  • ZOWIE by BenQ EC1-A (ALEX)
  • ZOWIE by BenQ FK1 (shox)

Xtrfy's only entry in the top 10 is with the best CS:GO player of 2019. ZywOo's modern choice contrasts with veteran RpK electing for a Razer Deathadder Elite.

100 Thieves

  • Logitech G402 (Gratisfaction)
  • SteelSeries Rival 310 (AZR)
  • ZOWIE By BenQ EC1-A (jks)
  • ZOWIE By BenQ EC2-A (jkaem)
  • ZOWIE by BenQ EC2-B (Liazz)

A second appearance for SteelSeries as their Rival 310 is the mouse of choice for AZR.

Natus Vincere

  • (flamie) Logitech G703
  • (electronic) Logitech G703
  • (GuardiaN) Logitech MX518 Legendary
  • (Boombl4) ZOWIE by BenQ EC1-A
  • (s1mple) ZOWIE by BenQ FK1+

Continuing the streak of Logitech and ZOWIE is Na'Vi, with two players preferring the same Logitech G703.

FaZe Clan

  • QPAD 8K (rain)
  • ZOWIE by BenQ EC2-A (olofmeister)
  • ZOWIE by BenQ EC2-B (NiKo)
  • ZOWIE by BenQ ZA12 (coldzera)
  • ZOWIE S2 (broky)

Nothing too strange from FaZe other than HÃ¥vard "rain" Nygaard's QPAD 8K over the more familiar branded mice.
