Best VALORANT Sensitivity and DPI Settings

It is all about finding the right balance.

In an aim-based tactical FPS like Valorant, having proper sensitivity and dots-per-inch (DPI) settings make all the difference. While players often copy their favorite pro's settings, in the end, it boils down to personal choice.

Having DPI and sensitivity settings that are too high can ruin your accuracy, and setting these too low will make players react slowly. Valorant is a game of precision where every micro-adjustment matters. With that in mind, this is how players should determine their sensitivity and DPI for Valorant.

DPI and Sensitivity Settings

The DPI decides the movement speed of the cursor. Having low DPI means players will have to move their mouse more to cover the intended distance. Most often, gaming mice have 400 to 3,200 DPI. Players can fix their in-game sensitivity depending on this factor. The optimal choice is to play with 800 DPI and an in-game sensitivity between 0.3 to 0.4.

Tyson 'TenZ' Ngo, the most popular Valorant pro, plays with 800 DPI and an in-game sensitivity of 0.4 to 0.408. Most professional players tend to have low DPI, anywhere between 400 to 1600. However, we recommend players spend time figuring out which DPI speed works best for them.

If you have a small workspace, make sure to compensate for that with high in-game sensitivity. Head over to the range and try tracking the bots for headshots in Practice mode. Tracking will inevitably build muscle memory and will help you get used to the preferred settings.

Keep experimenting with in-game sensitivity until you find the perfect balance, and then jump into a Deathmatch to test these new settings out.
