The best shooter player in the world sells 40,000 gaming mice in just a few hours - earning millions of euros

The best shooter player in the world has teamed up with Finalmouse to introduce a mouse. It was completely sold out after just a few hours.

Tyson TenZ” Ngo is considered the best shooter player in the world. He regularly shows how good he is with strong performances. For example, he had reached the best rank in Valorant in just 30 hours. He is still there today and plays for Team Cloud9.

Now he has presented a gaming mouse together with a manufacturer. It was sold out in just a few hours. Such joint campaigns by manufacturers and professionals are nothing unusual.

Gamer’s gaming mouse deal reportedly ‘biggest sale ever for an active esports player’

What kind of mouse is it? The manufacturer Finalmouse had developed a gaming mouse together with the Valorant professional. Together they presented the Starlight Pro on July 17th on the official website. The mouse is aimed specifically at players who want to play shooters:

  • The mouse weighs 42-47 grams.
  • Inside, an in-house sensor with a DPI of 20,000 is used.
  • The mouse is wireless and uses its own wireless standard.
  • However, the device can also be used via cable.
  • The manufacturer charges 189.99 US dollars, i.e. around 188.00 euros, for the gaming mouse.

Many users expect a technical standard and no longer want to play modern shooters with antique gaming mice.

The manufacturer is said to have earned more than 7 million euros with the sale of the mouse. A good chunk of the profit goes directly to the shooter player TenZ. Neither the manufacturer nor its press agency had said how much of it.

Does that come as a surprise? Not necessarily. Finalmouse is known for high-quality equipment and mice are often completely sold out shortly after the performance. And that was not much different with the Starlight Pro from TenZ.

Cooperation between stars and manufacturers is nothing unusual

Manufacturers regularly team up with various top players or streamers to design interesting products for fans or customers. A well-known example of this is the cooperation between Logitech and professional player Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek. Together they had developed the Shroud G303. You can currently buy this mouse for around 100 euros on Amazon:
