Most gaming mice for FPS games are designed simply, with only two buttons, compared to MMO or MOBA mice which tend to have a lot of side buttons. But, the important thing is how well the mouse performs.
A quality FPS mouse should have low click latency, low lift-off distance, and a consistent sensor. So when choosing a mouse, the first thing you should look out for is how comfortable it feels in your hand and your preferred grip type.
It is up to your preference, of course, whether you want a wired connection or wireless, but generally, mice for FPS games are light and designed for quick and accurate movements.
