EndGame Gear is a brand that I feel everyone should now know about. If you don’t, keep reading. They are known for their precision design, quality and performance. Helping you bring out the best gamer in you. With the success of their wired mouse, they released the EndGame Gear XM2we Wireless Gaming Mouse.
Gamers Asked For Wireless – They Got It
Before EndGame Gear, a mouse was just a mouse to me. It had to look cool, maybe some RGB but the other tech was long lost. During my XM1r review it sent me deep into the mouse underworld. There was so much to learn, but what a journey I had. I can not wait to put the EndGame Gear XM2we Wireless Gaming Mouse to the test. Keep reading to find out how I get on.
The EndGame Gear XM2we comes in two colourways Black and White. Both of these come in a high-quality smooth matt finish. This mouse is the lower-cost version of the EndGame Gear XM2w. When it comes to gaming accessories EndGame Gear, they design with a no-frills solution in mind. Their end goal is to give the gamer the best functionality for the best price. There are 5 buttons on this mouse in total, 2 top clickers, a wheel and then two thumb buttons. This is what I would say is a classic design/setup.
The underneath of the mouse has two large PTFE skates which allow for an ultra-smooth glide. To the bottom of the mouse, there is also a CPI button and a power button to ensure you don’t waste battery life when not gaming.
Firstly, let us talk about the EndGame Gear XM2we’s wireless functionality. With a 410mAH battery, this powerhouse can deliver up to 1 week’s worth of gaming. The dongle supplied is a USB 2. Type A and the wireless itself is 2.4ghz. Charging the mouse is nice and simple and can be done using the flex cord that is boxed with the mouse.
Switches are extremely important when it comes to mice and can be extremely painful when your clicks aren’t picked up. However, because the EndGame Gear XM2we comes with Kailh GO Optical Switches, I don’t think this will be a problem. The audible click and feel on this mouse are extremely satisfying and more to the point, accurate.

The EndGame Gear XM2we runs the same shape as the XM1r, it is highlighted that this is a mouse that suits all grip types. Due to its extremely lightweight, you get no strain when using it for long periods of time with most grip types. Like with all mice on the market, grip is personal and what might be perfect for me might not be for you. So please bare this in mind when selecting a mouse.
Back in 2021, I was lucky enough to check out the EndGame Gear XM1r mouse. It offered so much, even to the mouse amateur like myself. There was literally only one reason it received the Thumb Culture Gold Award. This was due to there being no wireless connectivity of any type. I have been following the EndGame Gear fans and there has been so much asking for a wireless version. Today we have that wireless mouse from EndGame Gear. The EndGame Gear XM2we offers so much more than connectivity. Its comfortable, design and performance for the price, beats just about any other mouse around this price point.
I award the EndGame Gear XM2we a Thumb Culture Platinum Award.
