Mice

The Logitech G Pro Wireless is by far the most popular mice among pros, followed by the classic Zowie EC2-A and Logitech G Pro.

What’s more impressive is that the G Pro Wireless is the most used mice in all four games we researched (CSGO, Overwatch, Fortnite and Valorant).

The second place is Zowie EC2-A, a classic mouse that’s super popular in the CS:GO pros. Out of the 64 EC2-A users, 43 are CS:GO players.

Third most popular mouse is the Finalmouse Air58 Ninja, which is used by a lot of Fortnite pros – 39 of the 50 to be exact.

In terms of companies, almost 1 in every 3 players are using a Logitech mouse. There are 3 Logitech mice in the top 10 list.

Zowie BenQ is also dominant, as 21% of all players are using their mouse. It also had the most mice in the top 10 list, with 5.

Finalmouse is the third most popular mouse company. There are 2 Finalmouse mice in the top 10 list.

Mousepads

Logitech took another crown in the mousepad category, with Logitech G640 being the most popular mousepad.

The second place is the Zowie G-SR, a popular mousepad that’s widely used in all 4 games.

Third most mousepad is the Steelseries QcK Heavy, which has its distinctive thickness. It’s a very popular choice for people looking for the extra comfort that comes with thick mousepads.

The company ranking is very competitive. There is only a 3% difference between the 3 most popular companies.

First place goes to Zowie BenQ. 16% of all players are using their mousepad.

Second place is Steelseries, who was only a percentage point behind with 15%.

Even though Logitech had the #1 mousepad, it was only the third most popular mousepad company with 13%.

Monitors

As many could have expected, Zowie BenQ dominated the most popular monitors list.

#1 spot is the Zowie BenQ XL2546, one of the signature BenQ monitors with 240Hz refresh rate and 24.5 screen size.

Second place is the XL2540, which is similar to XL2546 but does not have the DyAc technology. BenQ Zowie stated that it makes things such as spraying less blurry, so you can see the bullets and crosshair better.

Third most popular monitor is the ASUS ROG Swift PG258Q, another monitor that’s widely used among pro players. It has 25 inches screen size, and 240Hz refresh rate.

Of course, Zowie BenQ is the most popular company. Whopping 39% of all players are using a Zowie BenQ monitor.

ASUS is #2 on the list, with 12%. Alienware is third with 7%.

Headsets

HyperX Cloud II is the most popular headset among pro players, winning it by a huge margin.

Although it was launched in 2015, it’s still considered one of the best headsets today. And the data seems to prove that.

The second most popular headset is the Sennheiser Game Zero, another popular choice among gamers.

The third place is the Logitech G Pro X headset, which had only 1 less player than the Game Zero.

As far as companies, HyperX is being used by 24% of all players.

Sennheiser took second place, with 10% of all players using their headset.

Keyboards

In our last category, Logitech takes another #1 spot with the Logitech G Pro.

Logitech ended up taking three #1 spots out of five categories, which shows how dominating they are currently in the gaming gear department.

The second most popular keyboard is the HyperX Alloy FPS Pro, which is a very popular keyboard among the CS:GO pros. Out of 85 players using it, 62 are CS:GO players.
