Gaming mice often have many features that differentiate them from regular mice. This can be an ultra-sensitive sensor, an ergonomic design or, in the case of this list, side buttons.
In this article, we’re bringing you the top seven gaming mice with side buttons you can buy now.
DragonWar Thor ELE-G9
Manufacturer: DragonWar | Price: $14.20 (INR 1,032)
If you’re into giant mice, you’ll like this one. The Thor ELE-G9 is a rather large but very comfortable gaming mouse with a turbo button and two delightful side buttons.
The mouse sensor is pretty accurate and goes as high as 3200 DPI. You also get a braided cable and some pretty sweet RGB. Fun fact, this was the first gaming mouse I ever bought,

Manufacturer: Logitech | Price: $16.40 (INR 1,200)
Another mouse that I’ve used for a long time(over four years) and loved very much, the G300s, is the opposite of the G9. It’s small, lightweight, and has five buttons apart from your regular mouse click buttons that you can map to anything.
But buttons aren’t exactly on the sides, but rather on the edges of the mouse click buttons, so it does take some getting used to in the beginning. However, once you’re there, the sheer convenience this can offer is unmatched. The Logitech Gaming Software lets you control all aspects, including the subtle RGB.
Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury
Manufacturer: Logitech | Price: $31.42 (INR 2,299)
If you’re looking for a very light mouse with a fast sensor with more buttons your fingers can reach, your search stops here.
Apart from the blazing-fast sensor that goes up to 4000 DPI and the ergonomic design, the mouse has five side buttons you can map to anything in the Logitech G-Hub software and make full use of.
Logitech G502 Hero
Manufacturer: Logitech | Price: $58.60 (INR 4,295)
If you’re looking for a step up from the 402, the G502 hero comes in roughly the same design, but the buttons are slightly better placed and feel more premium. There’s also a freely scrolling mouse wheel that supports horizontal scrolling and fully customisable RGB lighting.
The mouse has the ultrafast Hero 16k sensor and the same ergonomic shape as its predecessors.
Razer Basilisk V2
Manufacturer: Razer | Price: $102.46 (INR 7,499)
Albeit expensive, as we’ve come to know most Razer products to be, the Basilisk V2 offers fantastic value for the money.
To begin with, you get a premium mouse with a rubberised matte finish that feels good to the touch. The scroll wheel has horizontal scrolling with customisable resistance, Chroma RGB and 11 programmable buttons with three on the side.
MSI Clutch GM08
Manufacturer: MSI | Price: $27.12 (INR 1,985)
The MSI Clutch is a simple, straightforward mouse built like a tank from the ground up. You can change DPI on the fly, and the mouse also has an adjustable weight system.
Then, of course, you’ve got two programmable side buttons that you can set to anything in-game and use to your advantage.
Manufacturer: Lenovo Legion| Price: $17.06 (INR 1,249.)
Lenovo’s gaming branch, Legion, has been making some pretty decent hardware under the radar for some time now, and their M200 mouse is a testament to their quality.
The mouse is sturdily built, with no spot left without the splashy RGB theme. You get on the fly DPI switching up to 2400 DPI on four levels. The braided cable adds to the appeal. The two buttons on the side are pretty tactile to the push and will be handy in games.
