Logitech G302 Daedalus Prime MOBA Gaming Mouse Specs

By Published November 04, 2014 at 11:56 am

A new high-performance gaming mouse has been unveiled with a slant toward MOBA gamers. Logitech, the company that brought us our “Editor's Choice” winning G700s and Proteus Core mice, today announced the “Daedalus Prime” G302 MOBA gaming mouse, built with assistance from professional teams SoloMid, Cloud9, CJ Entus, and others.

The G302 specifications are detailed below:

Priced at $50 MSRP, the G302 is about the same debut cost as the G500s (another mouse we liked), but has different features and use cases overall. As introduced with the Proteus Core (G502), Logitech promises zero acceleration, zero smoothing, and zero “correction” of the mouse in its movement. This ensures that the user's raw input is better-translated to the host PC, hopefully reducing chance of misclicks.

The G302 uses what the company calls a “metal spring tensioning button system,” which – in less marketing-y words – just means that the keyplate switches use springs that offer a more resolute kick and response upon clicking. This theoretically improves the accuracy of the click and reduces chance of sheer force applied to the switch.

Logitech's new mouse hosts six programmable buttons, positioned in the usual left thumb, top middle, and DPI switch areas.

The mouse is lightweight and meant to be thrown around, using a high-precision sensor with high-rated IPS (inches per second) movement. It's unlikely that you'll move your mouse faster than the sensor can detect, from what we've read.

The shape and size reminds us somewhat of the SteelSeries Sensei, given the G302's smaller stature and mobility.

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
