For FPS players like me, finding that mythical, just right mouse sensitivity can feel like a white whale. It doesn’t take long to get lost down an internet rabbit hole of recommendations loaded with technical language. It’s also a lot easier to just ignore everyone and adjust your settings on the fly until you settle on your personal preference.

True, there’s no universal ‘correct’ mouse sensitivity. But broadly speaking, almost everyone playing a competitive FPS should not be playing at the higher range of DPI or sensitivity. Why?

  • Lower sensitivity allows you to make smaller, more precise movements.
  • When snapping your crosshairs to an enemy, lower sensitivity can help you avoid ‘overshooting’ your target. 
  • Lower sensitivity smooths out the natural twitches and micro-adjustments most of us can’t help but make while playing.
