Top 4 Best Mousepad For CS GO
Every experienced and competitive player knows exactly how important a good mouse pad really is, in CS over 90% of the competitive players use really low sensibility, therefore, they use a lot more space than you usually use in most games, this coupled with using your arm for aiming, your need for space grows even stronger. People who prefer to use the wrist for aiming don’t really have that many problems, however, a large mat still helps for fast reactions and flicks, which are especially important when playing with the AWP.
With the need for space and mouse sensor quality in mind, we have developed this top 4 list because you probably want to buy a high quality product which is good for gaming, and unfortunately not all of the ones available on market can be considered high quality products, an example would be the colorful ones, while visually appealing, they aren’t that great for gaming since they tend to mess with the mouse sensor thus reducing your accuracy, you should also take a look at our list of some of the best mouse you could have for gaming as they are quite important for accuracy and consistent results, not only that but having a good monitor for gaming is also vital.
1. SteelSeries QcK Gaming Surface – Best Selling Mouse Pad of All Time
- The top choice of esports pros for nearly 20 years

Like the Zowie this is also a black pad. Therefore you should expect perfect performance from it, in fact, this is the most sold pad in Amazon with dozens of thousands of sales it’s one of the community favorite mouse pads, therefore, it deserved its spot in this list.
The SteelSeries QcK Gaming Surface is the thinnest mat in this list while maintaining the large sized dimensions that we’re looking for in a mousepad, its dimensions are 400mm x 900mm x 4mm, that’s 0.5mm fatter than the Zowie, some people feel a huge difference between thin and thick ones due to resting your arm, if you’re one of them then this is definitely the perfect option for you.

- Optimized for all sensitivity settings and sensors
- Highly portable cloth-based design
- Anti-fraying stitched frame with anti-slip rubber base
- Slick, taut weave for SPEED gameplay
Initially I wasn’t even planning on adding the Razer Goliathus to this list because like I explained above, colorful mouse pads tend to mess with mouse sensors, however, this probably would not happen with gaming mice, for reference feel free to check our list of some of the top mice for playing CS GO, however not everyone has a gaming mice, therefore, we must take into consideration that not every single competitive player has a top notch sensor hence my preference for black mats.
With this said and gone, the Razer Goliathus is beautiful, very visually appealing and comes with a size of 355 mm x 444 mm or if you prefer in inches 13.98 in x 17.48 in.
If you have a high tier mouse for gaming with a top notch sensor then do not worry about picking this beautiful mat. Otherwise, I would suggest you to go with one of the other mats that I will be suggesting. If you wish to read reviews on the Razer Goliathus, simply follow this link.

- Newly designed rubber base offers increased stability on any surface
- Dimension: 470 x 390 mm ± 10 mm/ 18.5 x 15.3 inches ± 0.4 inch
Unlike the Razer Goliathus this mat is perfect for any kind of mouse be it old or be it a top notch mice, it does not matter it will still fulfill its objective without any problems, this mat is a bit thick when compared to others in this list and some people may not like that, if you don’t like thick mats then this one is not for you.
The Zowie G-SR features a size of 480 x 400 x 3.5 mm / 18.9 x 15.7 x 0.14 inch, and it is also the most expensive option in this list by a very small margin.

- Extra Thick, Non-slip rubber base eliminates unwanted movement
- Optimized for low and high DPI tracking movements
- Durable and washable for easy cleaning
- QcK is top choice of esports pros for more than 15 years
This version of the QcK is in fact not that much different from the one we have introduced just now, however we felt the need to add it to this list because it’s the most used and pro favorite mousepad, you may be wondering why is that and what is the difference between this one and the QcK+, well the difference is that this one is 6mm THICK!
You are probably wondering why would anyone in their right minds play with a mouse mat 6mm thick right? Well pros use it because it helps when playing on uneven surfaces and that’s really important aspect for pros as not all LAN’s have top notch conditions, if they are forced to play on uneven surfaces then thicker mouse mats help A LOT, and that is precisely why so many pro players prefer this mouse mat over all the others on this list.
