When it came to picking the best gaming mouse for claw grip, there were six great options that stood out from the rest.

While initially tough to sift between a variety of price points, design features, mappable buttons, and even RGB, you'll be able to find the right hardware for whatever game you're playing.

How I chose the best mice for claw grip

When narrowing down the best gaming mouse models for claw grip, I rigorously went through not only options whose shape fit an average gamer's hand for the namesake style, but categories such players would consider as well. 

Considering a variety of price points and features that usually come with each, I've thankfully been able to nail down the ideal mice which suit a wallet of any size - with a mix of extra bells and whistles; higher DPI, massive battery life, lower latency, RGB etc; for those who don't mind spending a few more dollars.

While being sure not to pick mice which are too heavy, since lighter models are ideal when playing claw grip, you'll certainly come away from this guide knowing which mouse is best for you.

Razer Viper V2 Pro details

  • Price: from $99.99
  • Key features:
    • Focus Pro 30k optical sensor 
    • Gen-3 optical mouse switches
    • Hyperspeed wireless technology 

The first of my contenders for the best mouse for claw grip is the Razer Viper V2 Pro, operating as an update to Razer's flagship mouse. 

With an ergonomic shape suitable for both left and right-handed gamers, this mouse even has a heightened arch to suit the claw grip style - all fitting into just 58g as a bonus.

As for technical prowess, the V2 Pro has a 30K optical sensor for complete precision when gaming and a 90-hour battery life to ensure you spend as little time charging as possible.

This flagship mouse is quite expensive, but rest assured that it is well worth the investment.

Cooler Master MM720 details: 

  • Price: $46.99
  • Features:
    • Optical sensor up to 32000 DPI
    • RGB wheel & honeycomb design
    • 70-million click lifespan

Next up on this list is this life of great claw grip mice is the rather unorthodox Cooler Master MM720 gaming mouse. 

Amongst its old-school aesthetics which make it stand out from the more uniform contemporaries, whilst making this mouse perfect for claw grip, is its shorter and wider frame - ideal for those who don't want to rest their whole hand on the mouse.

Despite being one of the cheapest gaming mouse models we've seen for its features, the added PTFE feet for smooth & responsive gliding make the MM720 worth your money even more on this list. 

As long as you don't mind a claw grip gaming mouse that's wired, you're in for quite a treat.

Best mid-line mouse for claw grip

Logitech G303 Shroud Edition details

  • Price: $90.37
  • Features:
    • Made in collaboration with Michael "Shroud" Grzesiek
    • HERO 25k Sensor for added precision, speed & timing
    • Ultra-low latency via pro-grade LIGHTSPEED technology 

Another entry into the weirdly shaped mice club is the Logitech G303 Shroud, but don't let its almost diamond-like frame fool you into thinking this is the best mid-line mouse for claw grip out there.

Named after the streaming phenomenon and not the piece of cloth, the G303 markets itself with the implicit suggestion that your aim will be as good as Mr Shroud Grzesiek's when using it.

Whilst that would be a minor miracle if that was the case, it remains undeniable how unusual yet great shape this mouse really if for claw grip, especially factoring in Logitech's famous 25K Hero sensor for exquisite performance as well as comfort.

Glorious Model O Minus details:

  • Price: $90.37
  • Features:
    • 2.4GHz wireless with 1ms latency
    • Customisable RGB
    • 71 hours battery life

You better avoid the Glorious Model O Minus, if you've got trypophobia; otherwise,  you'll have the best lightweight mouse for claw grip gaming out there.

Combined with an RGB-illuminated honeycomb design, Model O Minus can be customised to match the rest of your stylish set-up and be ready for competitive gaming all the while. 

Whilst its 58g+ weight doesn't actually make it the lightest mouse on this list, I've found its 19,000 max DPI, super-fast 1ms latency, and 1000Hz polling rate makes for the ideal balance you'd be after the best from a lightweight gaming mouse with a claw grip

  • Price: $99.99
  • Features:
    • RGB rapid charge dock
    • Ergonomic shape & palm rest
    • Translucent shell & 5 AIMO lighting RGB zones 

Bringing stunning RGB to the claw grip game in my ways than one, the ROCCAT Kone is the ideal mouse if you want to merge claw grip and eye-catching illumination in one dazzling package.

Coming with its 100 hours of battery life, dual 2.4GHz & Bluetooth wireless connectivity, ROCCAT's Owl-Eye 19k DPI optical sensor, and claw grip-friendly palm rest, the Kone XP Air specialised in jaw-dropping lighting not just with its RGB rapid charge dock, but the five RGB zones shining through the mouse's translucent shell as well. 

As my colleague Jacob Woodward pointed out in his review, gamers will immediately notice the Kone XP Air's "bright, colourful, and has an almost 3D nature to it that I'm sure many will be a huge fan of" whilst using the 4D wheel and 29 programmable inputs to perfect your gaming.
