A responsive, finely tuned gaming mouse can recognize your hand movements milliseconds faster than lesser models. Such a small fraction of time may seem trivial but it’s actually the difference between the barrel of your gun flaring wildly or hitting its target during key flick shots. No one size mouse fits all, as there are many factors to consider.

No gamer’s hand is built the same. Having a mouse you can tune to your grip will help you strangle the competition.

When you move your mouse, how far do you want your cursor (or crosshairs) to move on screen? 500 meter headshots require precise fine adjustments, while coarser movements work better in close quarters. Some gaming mouses let you adjust this sensitivity (measured in DPI, or Dots Per Inch) with a simple click of a button.
