Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players are generally good at Valorant when they make the switch. Transferring your CSGO sensitivity to Valorant might help you to adjust to the new game ever quicker. 

Valorant and CSGO have a lot in common, but both shooters are unique in their own way. While CSGO players may have difficulty adjusting to Valorant’s agent abilities, most FPS skills easily transfer from one game to the other. The two tactical shooters share almost identical gunplay with a need for careful aim, crosshair placement, and recoil control. 

Proper aim placement and gameplay depend heavily on sensitivity. Using someone else’s settings that don’t suit your own style often results negatively. So it’s recommended to find your own perfect sensitivity whether you’re playing Valorant or CSGO. If you play both, it’s best to stick with one consistent number. 

If you’re someone who hasn’t completely abandoned CSGO after switching to Valorant, you may want to keep the same mouse settings in both games. It’s recommended not to go for a different sensitivity in Valorant since your CSGO gunplay will be negatively impacted if you go back. Here’s how you can use the same sensitivity in both games.

Valorant sensitivity is equal to CSGO’s sensitivity divided by 3.18. By converting CSGO sensitivity to Valorant with this method, players won’t feel any difference in mouse movement whenever they play each game. Here’s how it’s done: 

  • Check your CSGO sensitivity from game settings and keyboard/mouse, then note the number in the mouse sensitivity box.
  • Divide this number by 3.18181818.
  • For example: for a CSGO sensitivity of 1.5, it would be 1.5 / 3.18181818 = 0.471.

The result is your exact CSGO sensitivity in Valorant. So the difference mouse movement difference would be negligible next time you go back to playing CSGO.

However, Valorant movement is not exactly the same as in CSGO. It’s actually a bit slower, which is why some players opt for a higher sensitivity when playing Valorant. But if you’re someone who’s playing both games regularly, toying with two different numbers may hurt your performance. 

How to find perfect sensitivity in Valorant? 

  • Go into range and keep the crosshair on a bot.
  • Place your crosshair on the bot’s head and move left and right. 
  • Keep changing numbers until you can comfortably walk around without readjusting your crosshair. 
  • Crosshair slipping in the opposite direction or moving inward means your Valorant sensitivity is too high. If it keeps moving with your agent model outside of the head radius, it means you need to boost your number up.
