To improve in your CS GO game and get higher rank you need to start thinking about the mouse settings you use. What are the best mouse settings that fit to me?

Talking from my experience as an old player of CS 1.6 and now the CS GO you need to fix your windows mouse sensitivity, game sensitivity, dpi settings of the mouse you have and mouse pad.


Lets start with the first thing – Windows Mouse Sensitivity

Most of the cs go pro players mouse sensitivity settings are kind of the same. Windows mouse sensitivity, default with no mouse acceleration. To do this in your windows operating system  you need to go in Control panel -> Mouse ->Pointer Options. The pointer speed should be 6/11 and don’t check the Enhance pointer precision. Also keep in mind to turn off the mouse acceleration from your mouse software this depends from your mouse manufacturer.


Second thing: Game Sensitivity

Now that you have set the windows mouse sensitivity speed to 6 and 400 DPI(Dots per inch) in your mouse software in game you should have a border from 1-3 sensitivity and see which number fits better for you. Also its really important to turn mouse acceleration OFF.

Third thing: DPI (DOTS PER INCH) settings

Recomended DPI in your mouse settings is from  (400-800) . For 400 DPI u should have a range from 1 to 3 sensistivity in CS GO game. If u have higher you can calculate it online just type in google dpi calculator.

What is mouse DPI (CPI)? Dots per inch (DPI) is the number of pixels in one inch (2.54cm.) Mouse DPI, properly known as counts per inch (CPI) and formerly known as polls per inch (PPI), is the number of times your mouse notifies the computer of its position per inch moved. If you had 4 CPI your mouse would tell the computer it moved four times for every inch it traveled.


Does high CPI increase accuracy? No. There is no relationship between mouse CPI and accuracy. CPI relates directly to how sensitive a mouse is when moved. At a true 400 CPI your mouse will cover 400 pixels per inch which translates to the entire length of a 1280×1024 screen in 3.2 inches. At 800 CPI that same screen would take 1.6 inches of mouse movement.

What is adjustable CPI good for? It’s excellent for obtaining the perfect mouse sensitivity in applications that don’t allow you to numerically adjust your mouse sensitivity.

Is lower or higher windows sensitivity bad? Going over 6/11 in windows sensitivity will result in skipped pixels. At 7/11 one pixel is occasionally skipped, and at higher sensitivities the minimum mouse movement becomes multiple pixels. At lower windows sensitivities certain amounts of movement are thrown out, but minimal mouse movement results in 1 pixel of movement still.

What is the best way to adjust mouse sensitivity? Your windows sensitivity should be 6/11. From there sensitivity should be adjusted in-game or through mouse dpi/cpi settings. If you have a mouse without adjustable dpi/cpi you can also lower windows sensitivity if you don’t have enough control in-game and the mouse remains too sensitive.

Fourth thing: Mouse Pad
If your using lower sensitivity you will need to use a big mouse pad so you can move freely for the left and right turn around’s without reaching the end of the mouse pad. Here is an example in the photo below:
