VALORANT is a shooter with a low time to kill (TTK) which means that precision will be rewarded thoroughly; you can’t afford to miss half of your shots if you can get killed by one Vandal bullet. For that reason isn’t important to choose a sensitivity setting that allows you to aim precisely while also giving you the ability to quickly react to flanks or enemies who show up in unexpected positions.
Usually newer/casual PC FPS gamers tend to use a very high overall sensitivity setting, this hinders their potential to play better and it’s sometimes hard to realize that the sensitivity is the real problem. If you are transitioning from CS:GO or most FPS’s, you can have the same exact setting in this game.
In Valorant Crosshairs can be custom designed made in any color. This allows you to personalize your crosshair to what suits you best. There’s also the option to turn on ‘movement error’ and ‘firing error’ options for each layer of your crosshair. This basically means that your crosshair will be dynamic, telling you when you’re not 100% accurate due to your character being on the move or being hit by enemy players. Adjusting all of it to how you feel comfortable is the key to playing better.
The average eDPI( effective Dots Per Inch, and it’s calculated by multiplying the mouse DPI with the ingame sensitivity) of a pro player sits at 269 at this point in time, meaning that the average pro has to move his mouse ~50 centimetres to do a 360 degree turn in the game.
