Most of us like to play computer games even adults too love computer games. If we take the gaming industry mouses are a crucial role in it. Every gamer has their particular gaming mouse. But what are the differences between standard mouse & gaming mouse? Why do we want to use gaming mouses?
Gaming mouses are specially designed for playing computer games with new technologies & having some extra buttons comparing with a standard mouse.
They are a bit weight adjustable. It has lots of DPI settings. It’s faster than regular mouses. When you are using the sniper, you can hold your aim in the place you wish.
If you are going to play single player, then a standard mouse is enough for you. But if you are gonna play a multi player game, a gaming mouse is an important thing. Because players are playing by their self, so you have to give the maximum of your talent, so you need some advanced technology to play the game and ace it.
The mouse is going to choose where are you gonna shoot? You have to shoot faster than others. Then only you can win the game.
What do we consider while buying a Gaming Mouse?
Not every gamer is going to play the game in the same style, so every person has to find a mouse which is suitable for them.
Gamers will grip the mouse in three different styles. So you have to select your mouse by the style you are using your mouse.
1. Palm Grip
2. Claw Grip
3. Fingertip Grip
2. DPI(Dots Per Inch)
This is a measure of the mouse sensor’s tracking capability. High DPI mouses can do smaller movements.
Usually, DPI for gaming mouse starts at 1600 end up nearly 10,000. But if your DPI is between 1200 and 3200, It’s pretty good.
While you are zooming sniper rifle & going to shoot a small target, for this high DPI is the best option. But if you are going to zoom out your gun then you need low DPI.
In gaming mouses, you can change your DPI settings. In spite of that, you can play well in both zoom & un zoom categories.
3. Polling Rate
A mouse polling rate is a report of the mouse location. It measures in Hz. For example, if a mouse has 125 Hz which means it’s going to send its location 125 times every second.
If you want to decrease the lag of your mouse, then you have to use High polling rate mouse.
