Corsair Nightsword RGB Review

Corsair aims at Corsair Nightsword RGB directly in FPS and MOBA players. It has a lot of RGB, adjustable weights, and a somewhat unusual shape. Mouse comfort stems from many personality variables, such as hand length and grip pattern. So it stands to reason that Corsair tried to get the Nightsword to accommodate as many users as possible by adjusting the weight of the mouse.At press time, Nightsword has some of the tech’s best Black Friday deals and is up for sale for $ 58.72 / £ 70.32, but holds a suggested retail price of $ 80 / £ 70. Razer DeathAdder Elite ($ 30 at the time of writing) is the best FPS gaming mouse, but Nightsword appears to be competing with it radically differently and another programmable button, for a total of eight.

With no similar competitor already on the market, And from what we can tell from our tests, it’s a place occupied by people with big hands and a tendency for shooters in between their Dota training system.

Corsair Nightsword Design and Comfort

First things first – this is one of the longest and most important mouse designs we have tested. It has a chassis shape somewhat similar to the Corsair Scimitar and is more suited to a MOBA crowd with extra buttons, but Nightsword exaggerates the height in such a way that someone with smaller numbers is forced into the palm.

However, her ergonomics seem to be in place. The ramp in the back feels very comfortable under the palm, while the left mouse button (LMB) and the right mouse button (RMB) gently scallop the fingers where they should be. However, those with shorter fingers may find slight discomfort in the position of the ring finger. Getting it to sit completely on the right side required a bit of stretching, which doesn’t feel natural to me right away.

Corsair Nightsword Gaming Performance

To put Nightsword’s PWM 3391 dedicated optical sensor to the test, I ran the 3D Aim Trainer. It is accurate and has a super-fast 1000Hz polling rate for reliable tracking overall. It was perhaps the least expected that Nightsword’s giant proportions would do well in a reflexology shot or whip target adjustment, which would require lengthy scans across the mouse pad. There is more to a good mouse than a sensor – it’s a combination of ergonomics and technology that should complement each other, and truly work in the shooting environment.

That was evident almost immediately in the next testing environment, Quake Champions. This is a very rudimentary shooting game, and after a simple reset of changing the LMB side DPI buttons above the thumb rest so you don’t accidentally bump into it in the middle of a fight, it worked great.

Once again, tracking enemies firing fast-moving machine guns felt comfortable and natural. It didn’t magically make me a better player in Quake, unfortunately, there is no gaming mouse, but it melted into the background and allowed me to communicate with the game without being distracting, which is all you can ask for from your settings.

  • Great for whip aiming
  • Adjustable weight
  • Tons of RGB zones
  • Scalloped left and right-click buttons feel great
  • Indent pattern collects grime
  • Some buttons feel wobbly
  • The sniper button is located very far forward
  • Divisive looks


Gamers with larger hands, palm and fist hybrid hybrids, and those who prefer a slightly more under-hand weight will find a mouse very worthy of the Corsair Nightsword RGB. It’s packed with added bonuses, like RGB zones and adjustable weights, that you don’t expect for the price.

In contrast, the mouse feels cheap about the thumb buttons. And they don’t sell us the rubber and woven finishes that cover most of the mouse, either in the appearance department or its tendency to hold dirt.

But overall, Nightsword is a solid mouse for those looking for something geometrically different.
