What is Gladius?

ROG Gladius is an optical wired gaming mouse engineered with perfect right-hand ergonomics for first-person shooter (FPS) mastery! Smooth-touch materials stay cool in your hand and high-quality Mayan-patterned rubber secures your grip. ROG Gladius is the world's first mouse with 2000Hz USB polling rate support. With exclusive switch socket design for customizable click resistance, two-level DPI switch, ‘slide-to-press' side switches and a 6400dpi optical sensor that tracks up to 200 inches per second, and 50g acceleration, the battlefield is at your mercy. Detach the cable for carrying around — lock and load!






Ergonomic design for all grip types

Right-handed comfort crafted by FPS masters!

World top pro gamers involved in design stage, back and forth to ensure the best ergonomics! The fine-tuned curves make Gladius the perfect fit for all grip-types

  • “I like the design, it is very cool”,
    said Bebe, the world's leading League of Legends Attack Damage Carry (ADC) and Season 2 world champion, Taipei Assassins

    “ROG Gladius is comfortable to grip. It fits my hand perfectly”,
    said Chawy, Southeast Asia's leading League of Legends Mid Laner , Taipei Assassins

Every detail matters

Maximum comfort for even the longest battles

  • 2 ‘slide-to-press' programmable thumb buttons with a specially engineered shape that lets you slide your thumb to trigger a press

    6 programmable buttons

    The DPI clutch enables instant switching between two sensitivity levels:
    - Standard speed for everyday gaming
    - Extra-low speed for better aiming and accurate sniping

  • Solid left and right buttons, purposely separated from the mouse body for exceptional responsiveness

    Specially-designed micro-USB cable prevents the cable dragging on desk

  • Scroll wheel with an Alps® encoder for a positive stepped action

    Special steel-grey coating to minimize sweat and stickiness

    Two-sided Mayan-patterned rubber panels ensure the perfect grip


Advanced optical sensor

Track your every movement

DPI stands for ‘dots per inch'. With a 6400dpi sensor, Gladius will move the pointer all the way across a 4K/UHD display with a movement of less than one inch — and that's fast!

The ‘g' represents gravitational acceleration. The 50g sensor in Gladius is the fastest you can buy!

Enjoy lift-off distances <1.5mm when you pair ROG Gladius with the ROG Whetstone mouse pad.

Lift-off distances may vary depending on surface

20-million-click durability

Mouse buttons that won't let you down

Gladius is manufactured with high-quality Omron® mouse switches that are good for at least 20-million presses, so you'll enjoy accurate clicks from buttons that just keep going.

We even include two additional Japanese-made Omron switches that offer different click resistance — so Gladius responds just the way you desire.

Exclusive easy-swap switch socket

Instant upgrades for customized victories

Forget soldering hassles when changing mouse switches, as ROG's exclusive socket design means you pick and fit your perfect click resistance and recoil with one simple push*

Four-step switch-swapping guide

Gladius is supplied with reusable cushions to compensate for varying switch heights, and it's easy to add or remove cushions as necessary

* Compatible with Omron D2F series & D2FC series mouse switch


Touch-to-detach cable and ROG pouch

Bring your winning gear everywhere

Gladius comes with two USB cables. Leave the 2-meter cable on your desk for convenience and carry the 1-meter travel cable to LAN parties or internet cafés — it takes just one touch to detach either cable!

One push here releases the cable

Package Contents

  • 1 x 2-meter braided USB cable
  • 1 x 1-meter regular rubber USB cable
  • 1 x ROG pouch
  • 2 x Japanese-made Omron switches
  • 2 x Attractive ROG logo stickers
  • 4 x Smooth-glide mouse feet

Customize your GLADIUS

Shape and store your profiles

Gladius has built-in flash memory to store your favorite profile, so it's always by your side. It also features the innovative Armoury software – allowing you to create, customize, and store unlimited profiles on your PC!


Create unlimited profiles in your PC and save them on the mouse by dragging them to Profile on Mouse. Alternatively, you can edit them in the Profile on Mouse section.

The standard mouse polling rate in Windows is just 125Hz (8ms), with gaming mice often supporting 500Hz (2ms) and in some cases, even as fast as 1,000Hz (1ms). Having a high polling rate helps in FPS games, giving you faster and smoother movement as you set your sights on the enemy. With the ROG Armoury Driver 1.08 and upwards (available for download from the Gladius product page), you can now enable the 2,000Hz option under the Performance tab, enabling your Gladius to update its cursor position every half-millisecond!

GLADIUS works perfectly with your mousepad

Calibrate to conquer

The Gladius software includes an intelligent surface-calibration tool for pixel-perfect precision. Gladius analyzes and learns the surface characteristics to hone the sensor's accuracy — and that means even better in-game responsiveness!

Calibrating Gladius is easy. Select a mousepad preset or manually calibrate to any surface simply by moving Gladius across the surface until the pointer moves — job done!


ROG's heritage marches forth

Ancient Roman generals marched to victory with their Gladius swords aloft. Some of these formidable generals were called Maximus, the evocative name of ROG's masterful gaming motherboards. And Gladius is the name of our masterful gaming mouse!
