CS:GO and Valorant setting conversions are in high demand as new players are keen on trying out both these tactical online first-person shooters. While the players want to enjoy these titles, adjusting their settings like ‘Aim Sensitivity’ and ‘FOV’ (Field Of View) by trial and error is definitely not a pleasing thought. Though there are many different setting converters available online not all of them are reliable, and what if a player frequently switches between these two titles, how do they calculate a set of favorable settings that compliment both CS:GO and Valorant? Well, we have found simple and reliable two-way setting conversions which will help you make a better decision.
Read on to find out a set of unique formulas that can be used to convert ‘Aim Sensitivity’ (Hipfire and Zoom) and ‘FOV’ settings both ways - CS:GO to Valorant / Valorant to CS:GO, with utmost and precision.
CS:GO - Valorant: Reversible Sensitivity and FOV Settings
Sensitivity is one of the most important and personal settings across both CS:GO and Valorant. It changes from player-to-player depending on their comfort, position, weapon preference, and other such factors. Sensitivity can further be categorized into - Hipfire Sensitivity and Zoom Sensitivity, both of which are equally important and works differently across the two titles.
CS:GO - Valorant: Reversible Hipfire Sensitivity
Hipfire is nothing but using the virtual crosshair on the screen to take aim and fire. Players can customize their crosshairs to aid them better with Hipfire accuracy, but Hipfire sensitivity is equally important to control that crosshair. Players need to be comfortable with how they move their crosshair around, be it flicking towards an enemy, tracking them down, or simply looking around.
Players should have complete control over this movement as more often than not it becomes muscle memory, and the slightest change can result in a drastic drop in performance and uneasiness while playing. For a smooth transition between CS:GO and Valorant, players can use the formula given below to adjust their Hipfire sensitivity between the titles.
Hipfire Sensitivity: Valorant to CS:GO
- (Valorant Hipfire Sensitivity) x 3.181818 = (CS:GO Hipfire Sensitivity)
Hipfire Sensitivity: CS:GO to Valorant
- (CS:GO Hipfire Sensitivity) / 3.181818 = (Valorant Hipfire Sensitivity)
CS:GO - Valorant: Reversible Zoom Sensitivity
Zoom sensitivity is nothing but control over crosshair when aiming down sights. The sensitivity changes when zoomed-in through a weapon, behaving differently in CS:GO and Valorant. Both the games have their own default Zoom sensitivity value in place, which can be adjusted by a player according to their own comfort.
Both the games process Zoom sensitivity in different ways, while one multiplies this sensitivity the other overrides it with a new one. Here is how a player can seamlessly transition this setting between the two titles.
Zoom Sensitivity: Valorant to CS:GO
- (Valorant Zoom Sensitivity) - (Valorant Hipfire Sensitivity) + 0.818933027098955175 = (CS:GO Zoom Sensitivity)
Zoom Sensitivity: CS:GO to Valorant
- ((CS:GO Zoom Sensitivity) - 0.818933027098955175) + (Valorant Hipfire Sensitivity) = (Valorant Zoom Sensitivity)
CS:GO - Valorant: Reversible FOV Settings
FOV is nothing but what a player sees on their monitor screens, they can adjust how much they want to see of the game. Some people like a zoomed out vision while others like to see things a bit closely, both have their own tradeoffs.
In Valorant, the HFOV (Horizontal Field Of View) is fixed at 103, this means that the wider a monitor used by the player lesser will they see vertically in-game. While in CS:GO, the HFOV depends on players monitor resolution (game aspect ratio), so a wider monitor results in more vision on all sides.
The approach for attaining a similar FOV setting on both the games is not exactly reversible, as we convert how a player sees CS:GO in-game to how they would see Valorant in default settings.
FOV Setting: CS:GO to Valorant
- (Monitor Vertical Resolution) x 1.676229732 = (CS:GO Horizontal Resolution)
Applying this to CS:GO may feel weird for the first few days but helps in a smoother transition between the two games. Also, as the FOV is now the same across the two games, the aim sensitivity also feels more consistent and a lot better as the playing screen is exactly similar.
A few tips on how to apply these settings in the respective games. For CS:GO, the players can simply add them to their set of ‘Launch Options’ for more information on this Click Here. As for Valorant players, they might need to round-off some settings above to the closest number as there is no direct console access available for the game.
Apart from this, the FOV setting is purely optional and if you play more CS:GO than Valorant not changing this setting is the best way forward. All the formulas used above are quite reliable and can help with consistent gunplay in both games.
