OpTic yay: Mouse Settings

Even though yay was definitely a "high sensitivity player" for a while, he now switched to low sensitivity mouse settings, as he thinks that this is the key to achieving consistency (which you can read more about in this guide: The Best Mouse Settings in Valorant)

yay definitely doesn't have the lowest settings ever, that's also because he's using an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 graphic card, plus he cares about the visual aspects of the game because of his Twitch stream. However, if you want higher FPS values, we think that these settings may not be the best, and you might want to get inspired by players like TenZ in this particular matter: TenZ Settings & Hardware (2022)
