A mousepad can also help improve mouse tracking because the textured surfaces give your mouse’s sensor something tailor-made to see sliding by, ensuring you get all the performance your mouse is supposed to deliver. Using a mouse is also much more comfortable and consistent than using the back of a notebook or a magazine, which we have all tried at some point (or many points) in our lives. So put that magazine back on the shelf and check out these awesome gaming mouse pads instead.

A great mouse versus a subpar one can come down to a significant price difference, and many gaming mousepads are no exception. Not only is it worthwhile to purchase a high-quality mouse pad, but you have almost no excuse not to. Most great mousepads are not that expensive. They will be a significant improvement over the budget barrel options you might find in an actual barrel at your local electronics store. A good gaming mouse pad keeps crumbs on your desk from interfering with your mouse’s smooth swiping experience, and it can also help extend the lifespan of your mouse’s feet.

Corsair MM200 Pro Premium

If you need a large, high-quality gaming mouse pad, there is not much to it, but a few thoughtful considerations here and there can go a long way toward making it something that works well and lasts. The Corsair MM200 Pro Premium gets these details right. The Corsair MM200 Pro Premium begins with a thick and soft fabric, providing extra comfort if you have a palm grip and like to rest your wrist. Corsair has stitched the mouse pad’s edges, which can help prevent fraying or layer separation.

The fabric is also spill-proof and stain-resistant, so the occasional spill with a bottle of soda will not ruin it or keep you from playing for long. Corsair, on the other hand, has used an anti-skid rubber to help keep the mouse pad in place while gaming. We chose the X-Large size, but Corsair has a variety of sizes available, so you can find the one that best fits your desk.

SteelSeries QCK Medium

When you see the price of a SteelSeries mouse pad, you might think you are getting some low-cost barrel gear. However, the company makes some really great mousepads, and its cheapest options easily provide an experience that is far superior to the price would suggest. The QCK Medium is a $10 option that is ready for high-performance play, with an exceptionally smooth surface for fluid mouse movements. It is soft but not so soft and thick that your mouse will dig into it.

The rubberized bottom of the QCK series mousepads prevents them from slipping all over your desk, and the pads are thin and flexible enough to roll up and take with you wherever you go. If you require a larger mouse pad than the QCK Medium, SteelSeries offers a variety of other sizes at reasonable prices. SteelSeries even has versions that can cover entire desks, which are ideal for gamers working on full-arm aiming.

Razer Sphex V3

The Razer Sphex V3 is the mouse pad to have if you want to get the job done while feeling like it is not even there. This hard mouse pad provides the smooth gaming surface you need to easily glide around, allowing you to flick shots with little resistance for a consistent feel.

The Razer Sphex V3 will almost completely blend into your desk space due to its almost entirely black design, but even more so due to its incredible thinness. The thickness of this pad is less than half a millimeter. You will not have to worry about it rummaging up underneath your mouse because it is made of hard polycarbonate. You might be concerned about it sliding around underneath your hand given how thin and light it is, but Razer has addressed this with an adhesive base that will keep it in place. If you prefer to aim with your arm rather than your wrist, the Razer Sphex V3 is also available in a large size.

Cooler Master MP511

When you are gaming, you need reliable equipment, and that includes your mouse pad. You can not compete with a mouse pad that is fraying at the edges or scuffed up in a way that causes your mouse sensor to falter. As a result, it may be worthwhile to invest in a more durable mouse pad. The Cooler Master MP511 is exactly what you are looking for. This beastly pad (smaller sizes are available) is made tough with Cordura fabric that can withstand some abuse. Cooler Master has even stitched the mat’s edges for added durability.

The Cordura fabric can withstand not only the stamping and sliding of your mouse but also sweat and spills. If you accidentally knock over a drink, simply wipe it up because it will not immediately soak in. It is not a cheap mouse pad at $35, but it might be less expensive than buying a new one every time a weaker one wears out. Plus, for $35, you get an XL model.

OMEN by HP Outpost

The OMEN by HP Outpost mouse pad is required if you have a Qi-enabled wireless mouse. It includes a wireless charging pad with up to 5W of power to keep your mouse charged between raids and to charge your phone or other Qi-enabled wireless peripherals in as little as 2.5 hours. The mouse pad itself is reversible, allowing you to choose between soft-woven fabric and textured plastic depending on your preferences. It also has RGB lighting that can be customized to match your other RGB components or to show off your personal style. It even has a USB pass-through port for connecting wired peripherals such as headsets, keyboards, or microphones without taking up a port on your PC tower.
