With the trend of lightweight gaming mice on the rise, it’s become harder to find heavy gaming mice. There are a few reasons why you may want a heavy mouse, some people simply find them more accurate, while others appreciate the extra features they usually come with. On this page I’ll be reviewing a few of the heaviest gaming mice on the market, each of them weighing 130g or higher.
There are a few key factors to consider when buying a gaming mouse, the shape, the design, and the functionality. The most important factor is the shape and size of the mouse, the other aspects are pointless if you’re not comfortable while using it! You should consider your hand size and grip style in order to determine which mouse will fit your hand best.
1. ASUS ROG Spatha
The ASUS ROG Spatha is the heaviest gaming mouse I could find by a long shot. It weighs just under 180 grams making it over 3x the weight of a finalmouse. The main contributor to the 180g weight is the built-in magnesium alloy chassis, this also makes it very durable. Another factor is the size, it’s a very big mouse and the largest mouse on this list, this makes it best suited for a palm grip style. If you have small hands and like to play with a claw or fingertip grip, the ROG Spatha will simply be too big for you.
It’s a wireless mouse which is partly why it’s so heavy. You won’t have to worry about running out of charge as it comes with a magnetic charging station, you can simply pop it on the station while your away from your computer. You can also charge it with a USB cable so you don’t have to have any downtime.
It has 6 side buttons making it a decent choice for MMO games as they tend to require a lot of keybinds. It has a laser sensor rather than an optical one, this is not ideal as optical sensors are usually more accurate. Laser sensors do have their upsides though, they are able to perform well on a wide range of surfaces while optical sensors will suffer without a mouse pad.
Overall, the ASUS ROG Spatha is an extremely heavy mouse with a tonne of features. If you’re looking for the heaviest gaming mouse, this is it.
- The heaviest gaming mouse
- Built-in magnesium alloy chassis
- 6 side buttons
- Laser sensor (not ideal but has its advantages)
2. SteelSeries Rival 600 & 650
First of all, this mouse is available in two versions, the Rival 600 and the Rival 650. The 600 is the wired version and the 650 is the wireless version. The 600 has a weight range of 96g to 128g, while the 650 has a weight range of 121g to 153g. Like most wireless mice, the 650 is significantly more expensive than the wired version.
The key feature of the mouse is the weight tuning options. The left and right side of the mouse are removable revealing 8 slots where you can insert the extra weights. The way the slots are laid out makes it easy to maintain the right balance, you wouldn’t want all of the weights on one side for example.
SteelSeries claim the Rival 600 was developed with three basic principles: performance, durability, and flexibility. The mouse has received some impressive reviews including being voted #1 overall mouse by Rocket Jump Ninja, as well as Tech Radar’s best mouse for 2018. With an ergonomic shape and practical weight tuning options, SteelSeries have succeeded in making a flexible mouse.
- Impressive weight tuning options
- Available in both wired and wireless
- Voted #1 overall mouse by Rocket Jump Ninja
3. Logitech G602 Wireless
The G602 is an impressive wireless gaming mouse from Logitech, it has plenty of unique features and is relatively cheap for what it provides. Overall, I think the G602 is best suited for MMO games and maybe also MOBA’s, this is due to the shape, size, and number of side buttons. It’s a pretty unique mouse in both its looks and functions, and that’s the best part about Logitech gaming mice, they’re not afraid to be unconventional.
The fact that it’s a large mouse combined with it being wireless makes it pretty heavy. It weighs 130 grams with 1 battery and a whopping 152 grams with 2 batteries, for context, the Logitech G Pro Wireless weighs only 80 grams. This is Logitech’s heaviest gaming mouse by quite a margin.The mouse has an almost spaceship-like look to it, it’s a design that I think some people will love and some people will hate. It has 10 extra buttons consisting of 8 side buttons and 2 dpi buttons. All of these additional buttons make the G602 a solid contender for the best wireless MMO mouse.
- 250 hour battery life, 1400 hours in endurance mode
- 8 side buttons
- Unique design
4. Corsair Scimitar Pro
The Corsair Scimitar Pro is an MMO gaming mouse designed for games like WoW, ESO, and Guild Wars. With WoW classic releasing soon I suspect the Scimitar Pro will be a popular choice. What makes it an “MMO mouse” is the 12 additional buttons on the side, MMO games are known to require a crazy number of keybinds so you need all of the buttons you can get.
The main feature of the Scimitar Pro is the adjustable side buttons. The 12 mechanical side buttons are attached to a key slider on the left side of the mouse. Unlocking the key slider allows you to move the panel 8mm to the left or right, this lets you find the perfect placement for your hand size. All of the side buttons are mechanical giving them a great tactile feedback. The second and fourth row of buttons are textured for grip, this also helps you get familiar with the layout faster.
Like most MMO gaming mice, the Corsair Scimitar Pro is pretty heavy weighing just under 150g. It also has RGB lighting in four different locations that can be customized using the Corsair Utility Engine. Overall, the Scimitar Pro is a great MMO mouse packed with unique features.
- 12 adjustable mechanical side buttons
- Perfect for MMO games
- RGB lighting in four locations
5. Logitech G603 Wireless
The Logitech G603 is a wireless gaming mouse with a great sensor, Omron switches, 2 side buttons, and an insane battery life. Wireless mice that use external batteries tend to be heavy, but in the context of this list, that’s a good thing. The mouse weighs 112g with one AA battery and 136g with two.
Logitech’s wireless gaming products are always setting new standards, the G603 has a 500 hour battery life in its default mode and an 18 month battery life in LO mode. The LO mode basically sacrifices performance for battery, it’s a way to save charge while you’re not gaming. Switching to LO mode is easy, all you have to do is flick the switch on the bottom.
The G603 is equipped with Logitech’s HERO gaming sensor. The HERO delivers perfect performance at any sensitivity with zero acceleration or smoothing. This is about as good as gaming sensors get, you will have no sensor issues when using this mouse. The HERO sensor is perfect for wireless mice as it uses 10x less power than its predecessors, this plays a big part in the G603’s impressive battery life.
- Lightspeed wireless
- 500 hour battery life, 18 months in LO mode
- HERO gaming sensor
6. SteelSeries Rival 300
The Rival 300 is a medium to large-sized gaming mouse weighing about 130 grams. It’s a pretty simple mouse when compared to the other mice on this list, and that’s what I like about it. There are not many heavy gaming mice with a design as straightforward as the Rival 300.
The mouse is equipped with a Pixart PMW3310 optical sensor. The 3310 promises zero hardware acceleration, offering true 1:1 tracking and precise movements. With a high-quality sensor, rubber side grips, and two side buttons, the Rival 300 is a great FPS mouse for people with medium to large hands.
You have three colors to choose from when buying this mouse, black, white, and gunmetal grey. Another interesting feature is the 3D printable nameplate, you are able to 3D print a custom nameplate that you can slot into the back of the mouse. Simply download the 3D files from their website, print your design, and replace the RIVAL nameplate with your own version.
- Three color options: black, white, and gunmetal grey
- Perfect for FPS gaming
- Simple design
7. Logitech G502 Wireless
The Logitech G502 has come a long way since the original version was released in 2014. Since then, the mouse was given RGB lighting, a HERO sensor, and most recently, lightspeed wireless. G502 fans have been asking for a wireless version for a long time, the reason it took so long is because Logitech didn’t want to sacrifice any of the original qualities. Of course, there is one change that Logitech could not avoid, the price. Like all wireless gaming mice, the G502 lightspeed is significantly more expensive than the wired version.
What makes it a great mouse for this list is the weight tuning options. The G502 comes with 6 extra weights that can be placed into the bottom of the mouse. There are four 2 gram weights and two 4 gram weights, this gives you a weight range of 114g to 130g. The weight compartment has a magnetic cover making adjusting the weight nice and easy.
This mouse is packed with a few cool features, it has 5 side buttons, an infinite scroll wheel, RGB lighting, and a 60 hour battery life. Logitech’s lightspeed wireless is near flawless and approved by multiple esport pros, if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for anyone.

- Six optional weights
- Five side buttons
8. ROCCAT Kone AIMO
ROCCAT’s Kone AIMO is a large gaming mouse with a unique design and plenty of features. It weighs 130g making it a pretty heavy mouse, the large size makes it best suited for people with big hands. The design is quite hectic with a lot of gaps, ridges, and no shortage of RGB backlighting, that being said, it still has a nice ergonomic shape.
There are 3 side buttons on the left side of the mouse, one of them being the easy-shift button. The easy shift button is placed just below your thumb and will act as a modifier when held down, this essentially doubles the functions on the mouse. The scroll wheel can be clicked both left and right adding two more inputs to the mouse. Lastly there are two DPI buttons just below the scroll wheel, perfect for switching your DPI on the fly.
