TL;DR: 48.7% of professional Valorant players used the Logitech G Pro X Superlight at VCT 2023: LOCK//IN.

Of all mice we’ve tested, the G Pro X Superlight is also our number one recommendation.

If you’re looking for the best mouse to play Valorant with then you can’t go too far wrong by looking at the mice that pro Valorant players use.

Below, you’ll find a full list of pro players and the mice they were using at the VCT 2023 LOCK//IN tournament. We found and verified their mouse usage ourselves by analyzing VOD and official photography for every match.

The Most-Used Mice at VCT LOCK//IN

The following mice were most used at 2023’s ‘Lock In’ tournament, ordered by popularity (minimum 3 players):

*Weight excluding cable if wired. **Battery life assumes 1000 Hz polling rate and competitive settings.

There were 6 players whose mice we were unable to identify due to a lack of footage and photography. Their status has not been included in mouse use calculations (156 players were used instead of 162).

The most-used mouse was the Logitech G Pro X Superlight by far.

The G Pro X Superlight, available on Amazon and Logitech’s official store, is an ambidextrous mouse that most players choose for its light weight, comfort and reliability.

Whilst the Superlight’s HERO 25K sensor and 1000 Hz polling rate are outperformed by multiple mice in the market, this mouse is one of the lightest and most consistent that money can buy.

Its’ 61g weight is much closer to the lighter than the heavier end of the spectrum, with only the 42g-47g Finalmouse Starlight variants being substantially lighter than it in pro Valorant use. Many mice are much heavier, such as the 94g Zowie EC-1 or the 121g Logitech G502 Hero.

The Logitech G Pro X Superlight has all of the buttons you need in the places you need them, with nothing more. It’s comfortable for all grip types.

It doesn’t use the most modern technology like USB-C – instead opting for outdated microUSB – but is still the mouse of choice for the vast majority of professional esports players.

Interestingly, compared to CSGO player mouse usage, Valorant players were more willing to try out newer, high spec models from lesser-known mouse enthusiast brands. The Lamzu Atlantis and the G-Wolves Hati-M and HTS Plus models were all used by one player each.

In addition to this, players were more willing to use a variety of older mice too, including one player using the Logitech G502 and two players were using the Logitech G703 – one of my favorite mice of all time.

The Grand Final

In the Grand Final between Fnatic and LOUD, four players were using a Logitech G Pro X Superlight, which is to be expected, but four players were using a Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro and two were using a Vaxee XE.

The reason this is particularly interesting is because representation of the latter two mice was far greater in the finals than it was throughout the tournament.

40% of players in the final were using a DeathAdder V3 Pro.

This figure was only 11.5% in the tournament as a whole.

20% of players in the final were using a Vaxee XE yet this figure was just 7.7% for the tournament overall.

Maybe those players are on to something?
