CS:GO players - What's your "true" sensitivity? (pro player setup spreadsheet for references)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

For the sake of simplicity, your effective dpi (eDPI) aka your "true sensitivity" is a made up value that helps people compare sensitivities across different mouse dpi/windows settings. This is assuming your windows sensitivity is at the default 6/11 setting (6th tic).  Calculating your true sensitivity is easy. You simply multiply your mouse dpi along with your in-game sensitivity. DPI x ingame sens = eDPI.

 

For anyone playing cs competitively, there's a few guidelines below to help determine if your true sensitivity is slow, medium, or fast in relation to what others are using. Fact is, the majority of cs:go professionals use the optimal eDPI in order to mitigate aiming inconsistencies.

 

An eDPI of 2500 or greater is considered extremely fast.

An eDPI of 1300 is still pretty quick and you'll likely have consistency issues at this setting.

An eDPI between 800-1150 is considered "optimal" by many pro's.

An eDPI below 700 is considered slow.

 

I figured this would be interesting. So, what's your eDPI?

 

The cs:go pro player database is updated frequently. It can be found here - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1UaM765-S515ibLyPaBtMnBz7xiao0HL5f-F1zk_CSF4/htmlview?sle=true

3500 x 1(the lowest setting I assume), so 3500 dpi. for sniping I will use 800-1600 dpi.

lowest setting is 0.00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 whatever you can imagine

400 dpi / 4.25 sens.

1300 edpi

i have absolutely no idea to be honest, i just slide the dial and test until it feels natural.

we can talk numbers all we want, in the end the setting that comes the most natural to you is the one you should go for :P

I actually cycle between the dpi settings of my mouse. I use 1200 when moving and shooting on the move, and 800 when camping ('cause look at the noobs rage)

FYI, the button to change the DPI is on the mouse itself, between and behind the buttons.

I use 800DPI and 2 In-Game Sensitivity.... But to be fair my mousepad is tiny (Corsair MM200 Gen 2 Compact Edition)

 

So 1600eDPI, which feels natural, but is probably a tad slow as I cannot do a 180 without lifting up my mouse, I can do about 160.

Lel, just because I take milliseconds to change the sensitivity to match the situation-giving me a bit more of an edge.

Whatever works. I'm not here to judge people's play-styles.

Though, it's something you can only get away with in casual/MM.

400 dpi and 2.65 or 1060. 

Using Razer Deathadder Chroma and Supreme/LEM

Very similar to my settings when I used to play 1.6. (800 dpi x 1.3875 for 1100 eDPI). Honestly, I was expecting to see some pretty ridiculous sensitivity settings from people on here.

 

Well played, LTT.

Only "pros" could withstand ridiculous mouse sensitivity.

Yes, I'm sure many could - but why? Nobody needs to make 180 degree turns with ease since you're as good as dead if you're getting shot from behind. What matters is your head shot percentage and your ability to check corners effectively.

 

Casuals obviously won't care, though.

High mouse sensitivity doesn't do much for those who use Optus ADSL2 at any rate. 5Mbps out of 20+ping that goes from bad to outright ridiculous....so the times I actually get full use of my gaming mouse are few and far between.
