Your settings in VALORANT should generally depend on personal preference. But there are a few more important things to keep in mind, like your mouse sensitivity and your points per inch (DPI).
Precision counts VALORANT. If your sensitivity is too high, you will find it difficult to precisely click or tap on your opponent’s heads. But when it’s too low, responding to a shot, cross, or lightning can be just as challenging.
Finding the right balance with your sensitivity is key to improving yours VALORANT.
Your DPI determines the speed at which your mouse pointer moves on your screen. It is the foundation of everything you do on your computer from surfing the internet to immersing yourself in a game. Before deciding on your sensitivity, the first thing you should focus on is your DPI.
Mice vary, but they generally range from 400 to 3,200 DPI. The lower your DPI, the slower your cursor will move. For tactical shooters like VALORANT and Counterstrike, the best players – those competing for thousands of dollars in cash prizes – tend to use lower DPIs like 400, 800, and in some cases 1,600. We recommend using 800 for VALORANT. It’s neither too fast nor too slow.
When choosing your sensitivity, you should consider your role. If you prefer to use weapons like the Operator, consider lowering sensitivity. However, if you prefer a rifle like the Vandal or Phantom, choose a higher sensitivity.
Also, pay attention to your physical surroundings. If you have limited space on your desk or a small mouse pad, it is recommended that you increase your sensitivity to compensate for this.
If you have a lot of space, you can experiment with a lower sensitivity. We recommend anything between 0.35 and 0.45. It’s on the lower side of the scale and may take a bit of getting used to, but it’s not too low to interfere with movement.
