May a little better control if it has a programmable dpi,(dot per inch). The more dpi the faster the movement, so a mouse with a low dpi would be a little more accurate,( like adding a stick extension)

But I'm guessing the guns won't move any faster . They seem so slow in the game. I've seen a video of a rear gunner and they move way-way faster than what we get.

Exactly, you never use the highest range dpi. Even for other applications.
Gaming mouse has more buttons, that you rarely use several of them.
And some (useless) adjustments to the size of your thumb.
The adjustable length (longitude adjustment) can be useful.
The weight system is ridiculous.

Like the Madcatz R.A.T. 7

Mine had a spiky (after one year) left button. The shipping cost (RMA) was $40.
Note: She fly very well thrown by the window.

You killed your rat! All those extra buttons might help if anything, I have the ms ffb and has very few buttons .  Eventually, I'm building a cockpit with addable rear guns placed on rails . But for now, have to use the mouse and need extra buttons. The rat looks a little large and clumsy. Probably something cheap like the Logitech G500s , 50 bucks. and it's wired which I here is better for gaming.

In my opinion, yes. I have one that has a thumb button that I use for reloading turret guns while gunning. I also have a nice mousepad that makes the travel of the mouse more precise and smooth.

Thanks, Hotlead, never even thought of the mouse pad. Is yours one of those aluminum pads . Those things are expensive. Tell me does your gunner move any faster?

The game will set the speed the gun will travel not the mouse.

 

But like Hillbilly and Hotlead said. A decent mouse mat and lower DPI mouse will give you better control.

I have this mousepad:
https://www.amazon.c...i_iGDsyb4BZ16M3

It's relatively cheap for its size ($13 USD) and has stood me in good stead.

I wouldn't say that my guns move faster with it and the mouse, but they do move smoother. This helps with gunning IMHO.

Ok, thank you, Gentlemen, for the info.  Seen mouse pads for $80.00 Canadian, little high for me just for a pad.

There are only 2 extra buttons you need: to increase and decrease sensitivity.

With high sensitivity you look around fast / move the gun fast and vice versa. All you do is sight your target and as soon he's getting into firing range go to high sensitivity and aiming becomes *much* more precise. Your aim will increase markedly at once. No mousepads needed. Logitech G series mouse for example does thar very well. It also has the buttons for sensitivity where you have your thumb, so working that does not interfere with your aiming and shooting.

Get a good mouse like that for 80 bucks instead for a pad worth 1 buck. With that you comfortably hit everything in firing range with ease. Having those extra buttons is a game changer, believe me.

Thanks, ZachariasX, at the moment I'm just using a Microsoft wireless mouse. not sure if there is a sensitivity slider in the software but there is a speed adjustment, not sure if that's the same thing, so set it at half way.

Speed adjustment is most likely it. I never considered it useful until I had it on my mose mouse.

Nah, mouse should do. But you can try a mose. If you find one.
