INSIDE CORSAIR HQ: Favorite Mouse for Apex Legends?
If you’re a gamer or just like to follow gaming news, there’s no doubtyou’ve heard of the new battle royale sensation, Apex Legends, and its rapidrise to success. Here at CORSAIR HQ, which resides somewhere between Artilleryand Bunker, there are a bunch of us who regularly take up arms and battle itout to be champions. With the game’s large variety of weapons, upgrades, andlegends to choose from, your mouse should match your playstyle. I asked some ofour own staff which mouse/mice they preferred and why. Read on to see what ourown legends have to say!
First Name: Donia
Position at CORSAIR: Customer Service Representative
Preferred Legend: Lifeline
Preferred Mouse: White M65 RGB Elite
Why? I really like this mouse a lot because not only is it SOOOO pretty – But it’s the perfect size for me. I have small/medium sized hands, and a lot of other mice don’t fit my hands well. I like when my mouse is simple and just gets the job done. The sniper button is GENIUS; I also play League of Legends, so I can play with super high sensitivity at times. Using the sniper button to slow down to aim has literally saved my life in game. Overall, it’s a good, simple mouse that really gets the job done.
Position: Technical Support
Preferred Legend(s): Bloodhound and Octane
Preferred Mouse/Mice: White M65 RGB Elite
Why? I love the feel and looks of this mouse. It sits comfortably in my hand and I’m able to easily reach the side buttons. I typically rebind the sniper and side buttons, which allows me to sprint, heal, or drop kick someone with the greatest of ease.
Position: Technical Marketing
Preferred Legend(s): Lifeline or Bangalore
Preferred Mouse/Mice: Glaive RGB or White M65 RGB Elite
Why? I love the Glaive’s shape, large thumb buttons, easy to read DPI indicator, and interchangeable thumb rests. All of these give me a comfortable, firm grip, and makes it easier to frag out. The white M65 RGB Elite feels super snappy, it’s easy to clean, and with the updated thumb buttons, it feels better than ever. Oh, and aesthetically speaking? OOF. It’s a beauty.
Position: Technical Marketing – Elgato
Preferred Legend: Bangalore
Preferred Mouse/Mice: Black M65 RGB Elite
Why? The shape and size of the mouse are really nice, and it fits well in my hand, which is the most important aspect of a gaming mouse to me.
Position: Video Producer
Preferred Legend: Pathfinder
Preferred Mouse/Mice: Harpoon Wireless
Why? I’ve always liked smaller/ lighter mice, especially for FPS games. I mainly play wired at my desk, but I also have my PC running to my 4K TV in the living room. The Harpoon wireless lets me quickly unplug and move to my K63 Lapboard combo.
Position: Marketing Manager – Elgato
Preferred Legend(s): Mirage
Preferred Mouse/Mice: Glaive RGB
Why? The Glaive seems to be that sort of classic mouse shape, and the customizable side panel allows the mouse to be enjoyed by people who prefer different styles of mice. Some people like thumb rests, whereas I just want a simple side with grip, and the Glaive gives that to me.
In addition to these responses, we also collected some data of other Apex Legends fans around the office. Below, in our ultra-scientific bar graph, you can get a visual representation of which mice our own legends prefer.
From the collected responses, it appears that the M65 RGB Elite is the champion for Apex Legends fans at CORSAIR HQ!
This was data collected from a small sample of us who have been bitten by the Apex Legends bug at the office. Just like the game gives you a wealth of weapons to choose from, CORSAIR offers plenty of options for mice, except you’re not at the mercy of RNG. On that note… has anyone found a Precision Choke?
