Unlike the other clicking techniques, butterfly clicking has gained quite a bit of popularity due to the high clicking speed it can achieve. Moreover, this method gives you an advantage over your opponents in games like Minecraft.
But what exactly is butterfly clicking, how to butterfly click, how do you do it correctly, and is it even allowed? We’ll answer these questions for you.
What is Butterfly Clicking exactly?
Butterfly clicking is a clicking method developed by the gaming scene to achieve maximum clicks per second in a game. Butterfly clicking is simply placing any two fingers on the tip of the mouse button and tapping it alternately with both fingers.
Normally, butterfly clicking is performed with the middle finger and index finger to generate more clicks as quickly as possible.
How to perform a butterfly click correctly?
As with many things, butterfly clicking is all about your technique. And the more you practice, the better you will become at performing a butterfly click. How exactly does the butterfly click work?
In butterfly clicking, you click alternately between two fingers, usually the middle finger and the index finger. This is to generate as many CPS (clicks per second) as possible.
Basically, when butterfly clicking, we click with a mouse so that the mouse registers twice the number of clicks (or even more) than usual clicking.
Basically, you are trying to click twice with your mouse, even though the button was only triggered once. To do this, you need to find a specific point on your mouse button where butterfly clicking will register two clicks instead of just one. Here you have to test and vary the angle until it works.
Moreover, this clicking method is not easy, as it requires a lot of practice. Here a YouTube tutorial, whichs explains you the basics.
As you can see, in butterfly clicking you try to tap your mouse button alternately with your index and middle finger – as fast as you can. Even though some CPS counters can report over 20 clicks per second with this technique, which is absolutely possible.
How do I get better and faster at Butterfly Clicking?
To get better at the technique of butterfly clicking, you should keep a few points in mind:
- You should stick to a consistent clicking pattern. For example, you should not click twice with the middle finger and then once with the index finger, but always cleanly alternate.
- You should always tap the mouse without interruption. This is especially hard at first, but you’ll get used to it over time and increase your clicks per second.
- Make sure you don’t put more pressure on one finger. The pressure should be distributed as evenly as possible on both fingers.
- Get a good mouse and a good gaming mouse pad. Especially the latter will give you the necessary stability when clicking.
It’s best to download a tool that displays your clicks per second in the game. This way you can track your development and see directly when you get better. Otherwise you don’t know if you are getting faster. This is especially important in the beginning when you are still trying to find the right pressure point for your mouse.
Which Gaming Mice are good for Butterfly Clicking?

Is Butterfly Clicking allowed?
Even though butterfly clicking isn’t considered cheating everywhere, you’ll probably get banned for it, especially in Minecraft. Because even if you get to a legitimate 20 CPS by really butterfly clicking, your skill might be mistaken for an auto-clicker program – which is not allowed.
With a lot of practice, the right mouse and technique, you can learn and use the butterfly click method. Whether and how often you want to use it is up to you. As an alternative you can learn the drag clicking or jitter clicking.
