Logitech’s G302 Daedalus Prime mouse aims to be a key ally in games like League of Legends

logitech g302 daedalus prime designed for moba gamers
Simply designing generic gaming peripherals is no longer enough for outfits like Logitech. They now spend a lot of time, effort, and money trying to cater to the specific needs and preferences of gamers.

Now, the company is about to launch the G302 Daedalus Prime, a new mouse from Logitech that’s aimed at MOBA gamers. According to Logitech, the mouse has been tested by professionals, and targets “the best eSports athletes in the world.” MOBA, in case you’re wondering, stands for “Multiplayer Online Battle Arena.” Think of games like League of Legends, and DOTA 2.

It may not necessarily be an aesthetic knockout, but the G302 stands out by finding a seemingly ideal balance between compact size, and durability.

Made to withstand 20 million clicks, the mouse weighs just under four and a half ounces. Logitech’s own G402 Hyperion Fury, by comparison, weighs just over five ounces. A lighter mouse may mean quicker reaction times, and more victories for you.

However, we’re afraid that no optional wireless model is offered. But perhaps that’s for the best, as you wouldn’t want precision to suffer from a dead, or dying battery. The Daedalus Prime is capable of response times of one millisecond.

The Daedalus makes good on its mythical name by allowing you to instantly switch between up to four DPI settings on the fly. Sensitivity starts at 240 DPI, and can go all the way up to 4,000, though that doesn’t break any records. We can’t help but wonder whether anyone has detected any differences between 4,000, and 8,200 DPI mice when gaming.

Responsiveness and speed are reportedly improved by an innovative metal spring system.  That could not only boost your chances of winning, but also make clicking less of a pain (literally and figuratively) after hours of uninterrupted gaming.

Finally, you have six programmable buttons here. Once again, that’s not a world record, but still appreciated considering the target audience, as well as the palatable price.

You can pre-order the G302 Daedalus Prime now for $50, with shipping set to kick off sometime this month.

If you’re into MOBA games, you’ll likely fall head over heels in love with the Daedalus Prime, which could be one of the most accurate, responsive, durable, yet affordable gaming mice around.
