The Corsair Scimitar Elite Wireless: A Dream Come True for MMO/MOBA Gamers

The Corsair Scimitar Elite Wireless is the company’s newest MMO/MOBA-focused wireless gaming mouse, and it’s a dream come true for someone like me. I’ve been waiting for a wireless mouse with 16 programmable buttons, and the Scimitar Elite Wireless delivers that and more.

This is one hefty mouse, and if you’re looking for a more lightweight and portable option, the Scimitar Elite Wireless isn’t going to be right for you. It’s larger than most and designed for those who prefer bigger and bulkier mice, but it’s comfortable and performs well.

The Scimitar Elite Wireless is a step up from the Scimitar Pro Wireless, featuring Corsair’s Marksman optical sensor with a native resolution of 26,000DPI and a maximum speed of 650 IPS. It offers both 2.4-GHz wireless and Bluetooth connectivity and has a battery life of up to 120 hours.

Corsair Scimitar Elite Wireless specs

I’m a huge fan of wireless mice, but it’s not always easy to find one with a high polling rate over 2.4-GHz wireless. The Scimitar Elite Wireless has a polling rate of up to 2,000 Hz over 2.4-GHz wireless, which is significantly higher than most wireless mice. It’s lighter and more tactile than most optical switches, too, which I appreciate.

I’m a big fan of wide designs as they often better accommodate palm grips, and the Scimitar Elite Wireless is no exception. It’s a fairly standard design, with two thumb buttons on each side, a right/left click, scroll wheel click, and a DPI switch button. The 12-button side panel is repositionable, so you can adjust it to better fit your hand size.

There’s a profile switch button on the bottom, but the Scimitar Elite Wireless lacks a tilt wheel. It comes with a 6-foot braided USB-C to USB-A cable, a 2.4-GHz wireless USB-A dongle, and a hex key for adjusting the side panel.

I’m a huge fan of its sculpted body, too, which provides a comfortable grip for my ring finger. It’s a little more rounded than some other sculpted mice, which I appreciate, and it’s quite comfortable for my average-sized hands. It’s not the best gaming mouse for palm grip, but it’s better suited for longer gaming sessions and marathons.

Corsair Scimitar Elite Wireless design

The Scimitar Elite Wireless is a fairly standard MMO-focused mouse, but it’s comfortable and performs well. It’s not as light as I’d like, but it’s a solid wireless mouse nonetheless.

The Scimitar Elite Wireless is a step up from the Scimitar Pro Wireless, featuring Corsair’s Marksman optical sensor with a native resolution of 26,000DPI and a maximum speed of 650 IPS. It offers both 2.4-GHz wireless and Bluetooth connectivity and has a battery life of up to 120 hours.

Corsair Scimitar Elite Wireless performance

The Scimitar Elite Wireless is a solid MMO mouse and performs well with Corsair’s Marksman optical sensor. I often struggle with palm grip mice, but this one glides smoothly and accurately, even on glass mouse pads. It’s not the best for first-person shooters or competitive gaming, but it’s a dream for longer gaming sessions and marathons.

Marksman performs well and tracks precise movement on various surfaces. It glides smoothly and accurately, even on glass mouse pads, and it’s compatible with PC gaming. I’m a huge fan of lightweight and tactile optical switches, too, which I feel provide more feedback than laser switches. Although it’s not a gaming mouse that’s designed for competitive gaming, it performs well.

Corsair Scimitar Elite Wireless Verdict

If you’re looking for a wireless mouse with a lot of buttons, the Scimitar Elite Wireless is a dream come true.
