CS:S Mouse Help!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I've been playing cs for some time now and I think it's time I got a better mouse, I'm currently running a generic Microshaft Mouse, I am hoping to get a good gaming mouse and all I require is a scroll wheel and that the scroll wheel has a clicking option. My mouse is good, but incredibly slow, I have my crosshairs on other awpers and they hit me way before my shot even fires, Even though I click my mouse way before them! I know alot of you 1337 players such as Bigval use non generic mouses, What do you reccomend? Keep it fairly cheap, I like the G5 but know nothing about it.


Arrow keys = forward, backwards, and side to side strafe.

Mouse= Look

Mouse3=Jump

MouseScrollwheel = Weapon Switch

Keyboard C = Crouch

I've gotten Incredibly accustomed to that setup, and i can for the better part play fairly well with it, as alot of you may know

Oh man those keys are way different than mine. I use this:

W - forward
A - left
S - reverse
D - right

Ctrl - crouch
Space - jump
Scroll wheel - switch weapons
Left click - shoot
Right click - alternate (scope in etc)

I use the Logitech G5 mouse and I really like it. I use crosshairscale of 3000 which I find to be the best. Its small enough to pick off heads but big enough to keep a wide spray radius when in close combat.

When you get the money, look into the icemat mousepad. It is glass and very easy to slide your mouse on. It helped me be more precise over my desk and my ratspadz gs even.

When you get the G5, go to logitech's website and download the firmware flashing application. Its a small exe file that will flash your mouse from firmware 1.0 to 1.1.

Enjoy!

I really like my mouse Logitech MX20 or something another....It's a green laser really comfy for gaming i used generic mouse before, I can't go back you should at least look it up very precise buuutttt it's about 60-80 bucks...so not very cheap...recharable batteries...think of the money u'd save!!!

I need to change my profile...just orgot, but i sold my G5 and got another MX518....i like the fact that it has more buttons.....

w,a,s,d - movement
Space - jump
ctrl - crouch
Left mouse - primary fire
Right mouse - secondary fire
Mouse 4 - voice chat
mouse 5 - previous weapon
Scroll Wheel - next/previous weapon
Pushdown scroll wheel - teamspeak 2

2000 dpi is really superfluous IMO...and the fact that the G5 has only once side button made it a loser for me....

i love my MX-518. Plenty of buttons to customize for gaming (and in windows, since you can assign each button it's own action through the logitech software) If you have a few more bucks to spend, then go for the G5. I'd say that both will give you excellent gaming performance, and the difference between the two would be hardly noticable in real world testing.

Anyone know If I should go G5 or MX518 ? The G5 costs a bit more than the MX518.

I would go with the MX 518.....for the precise reasons that i stated above...

There is really no discernible differance between 1600 and 2000 dpi....i've used both the G5 and the mx518, and i went back to the mx518 recently.

There are more buttons for customization as well, so it's great for games from Counterstrike to Freelancer....and i've even bound healing spells in oblivion to my mouse.
