Valorant is one of the most loved games in the PC community right now. The game was launched on last year, and since then, the game has been loved by many. A vast majority of people have also taken up the game, leaving behind their favourite games for this new title.

This game has also made it to the esports scene across the globe, and in order to be the best, one needs to have the best settings. One can look around and tweak the way the want but one needs to try everything they possibly can.

suitable mouse DPI

If a player has a mouse with a variable DPI feature, they can utilise it to set the DPI to a fixed value. For those unfamiliar with the term DPI, it stands for Dots Per Inch and is a measurement of mouse sensitivity.

The higher the mouse DPI, the faster the mouse pointer moves for the player. The DPI of a pro player’s mouse is normally set at 400 or 800. Professional players use a lower mouse sensitivity to achieve greater accuracy on aim.

mouse polling rate

Simply said, the polling rate is the number of times the mouse position is changed and relayed to the computer. When a mouse’s refresh rate is set to 500 Hz, the mouse’s position is updated every 2 milliseconds, or 500 times per second. When a mouse is set to 1000 Hz, it will take half as long to update its position and will do so every millisecond.

If players have the opportunity to change the polling rate of their mouse, they can get more out of it by increasing the polling rate.

correct mouse sensitivity in Valorant

Players can now focus on establishing a comfortable in-game sensitivity after the hardware upgrades have been completed. For players who are new to Valorant and have no prior shooter experience, this can take some time. The easiest method to achieve it is to go to the shooting range and spend some time shooting targets while fine-tuning their in-game sensitivity.

Players who have played other shooting games and are new to Valorant can use online mouse sensitivity converter to convert their sensitivity. However, those settings may not be precise, necessitating additional fine-tuning.

Keeping the mouse EDPI in range

EDPI (Effective Dots Per Inch) is a sensitivity metric used in shooting games. The EDPI is calculated by multiplying the mouse DPI by the game’s sensitivity. A professional Valorant player’s EDPI might range from 200 to 400.

However, players are not required to keep within this range, as some may be accustomed to a higher mouse sensitivity. Professional player Hiko, for example, has an EDPI of 576.

Basic updated in 3.07 patch

Riot Games, developers of  VALORANT released the VALORANT Episode 3.07 patch notes for the game. VALORANT 3.07 patch notes suggest that every agent’s abilities have been tweaked a little. It also comes with the adjustment in the accuracy of weapons.  This update’s main focus has been on two components of the game: increasing the importance of gunplay and expansion of Tactical sandbox.

  • New setting, in Beta, “Raw Input Buffer” improves performance of input device processing
  • VALORANT has used Raw Input for devices since launch. Enabling “Raw Input Buffer” will adjust which APIs are used for processing Raw Input.
  • Should result in minor performance improvement and identical input latency when used with standard input devices and gaming mice.
  • Major performance improvement when used with 8000hz polling rate mice.
  • 8000hz polling rate mice are supported with this feature enabled.
  • Fixed a bug where the text cursor would relocate to the right when editing text in the Report A Player menu.
  • Fixed a bug where Team Ace could be awarded in scenarios where it wasn’t earned by the team.
  • Penalties removed for leaving Deathmatch earlyFull game participation is required to earn XP.

Besides this, the Riot Mobile App is also out now. “The first thing you should know is that on October 4th, 2021 League+ will be upgraded to Riot Mobile. When we set out on this project, our goal was to create an experience for players that made it easy to discover new content and activities to engage with, stay informed across all of our titles and events, and connect to other Riot players outside of the game,” said Lex White, Product Manager, Riot Games.

“Player feedback has been the critical component to ensure we are delivering real value to players. Please help us help you by using the hashtag #helloriotmobile on Twitter so we can use your feedback to further improve the Riot Mobile experience. Or share your feedback directly on the App Store or Google Play Store,” he concluded.
