Valorant: Best Sensitivity Settings [Hands-on Experience]

This guide contains in-depth sensitivity settings with DPI and eDPI along with Pro Valorant Players so you can get the best sensitivity for Valorant.

Unlike other FPS or Battle Royale games, Valorant has very different aiming mechanics, and you may consider it close to CS GO. Therefore, the precise gunplay in Valorant requires the best sensitivity, and in this guide, we will explain how to configure it.

Key Takeaways
  • Valorant demands precise sensitivity for accurate gunplay.
  • Sensitivity hinges on in-game mouse sensitivity and DPI (Dots Per Inch).
  • Mouse DPI determines cursor speed, with over 800 considered high and below 800 low.
  • High DPI limits arm movement, requiring minimal wrist actions.
  • Low DPI demands more arm movement, requiring extra effort to move the cursor.
  • In-game sensitivity influences cursor response depending on preferences, gameplay, chosen weapons, and the agent.
  • eDPI (effective Dots Per Inch) is calculated by multiplying in-game sensitivity by mouse DPI.
  • Professional Valorant players like Tenz, cNed, DAPR, ShahZam, and others list their Mouse, Crosshair, and Video settings.

My Take On How To Find Your Sensitivity

As for my sensitivity, I use 0.28 in-game sensitivity, while my mouse DPI is 800, which sums up to the eDPI of 224. For those who are wondering how I found my perfect sensitivity, so, as I have been playing Valorant for over two years now, and it took quite a while to figure out my perfect sensitivity. 

However, I will sum it up for you in one paragraph. Hit the practice range and set the bot difficulty to medium. After that, make sure to keep your crosshair in the middle of the pillar and flick on the bots as they keep popping up. If you are inflicking then increase your sensitivity by a few points; however, if you are overflicking, decrease your sens. Keep repeating it until you are not inflicking or overflicking anymore.

With all of the information provided above, my guide on Best Sensitivity for Valorant comes to an end. While you are at it, make sure to visit other Valorant guides as well—guides such as Valorant’s best aim trainers, Valorant’s best players, and many more have been covered.
