Switching from Valorant to Overwatch 2’s beta can be tricky as the sensitivity settings in both games are very different.
Converting your sensitivity is very simple and you can do it yourself with some simple math.
It is recommended to tweak your sensitivity for each game individually as their playstyle and mechanics can demand different sensitivity settings.

Transitioning from Valorant to Overwatch 2’s PVP beta sensitivity can be difficult since the in-game sensitivity numbers do not correlate with each other. It takes too much time to figure out that sweet spot once again but we are here to help. With some quick number crunching you can transition from Valorant to Overwatch’s sensitivity settings very easily.

Do note that Overwatch is a fast-paced game with higher mobility while Valorant’s combat is a lot more tactical and methodical. What is comfortable for you in one game might not be ideal for the other and you should experiment with what works for you best. Here is a quick rundown on how to convert your Valorant sensitivity settings to Overwatch 2’s beta.

How to convert Valorant’s sensitivity to Overwatch

Your Valorant sensitivity multiplied by 10.6 will translate to Overwatch 2’s sensitivity. You can also head to Gaming Smart’s Mouse Sensitivity Convertor or other third-party tools to find your ideal sensitivity for Overwatch 2. While you will be able to convert your base sensitivity, Overwatch 2’s fast-paced gameplay may require you to adjust your settings further.

Finding the right Valorant sensitivity settings depends on the game you are playing. If you need to continuously move your mouse, using lower sensitivity is recommended for more precise aiming. CS:GO and Valorant are slower-paced than Overwatch or Apex Legends, which have extremely high mobility. This makes transitioning from CS:GO, Overwatch, Apex Legends to Valorant tricky at times. It is safer to use lower sensitivity in Valorant than something like Overwatch.

Here is a simple way to find the right settings for yourself:

  1. Load into Valorant’s training range.

  2. Try to keep your mouse locked to a target while strafing.

  3. Increase your sensitivity a little if you are unable to do so and try again.

  4. If you can track comfortably, try reducing the sensitivity a little and see if you can still track your targets.

Ideally, you want to find the sweet spot where your sensitivity is as low as possible without straining your hand. You want to be able to comfortably track your targets at the lowest sensitivity that you find right. If you want to lower your sensitivity proactively, always do it in increments instead of making jarring changes, which can disorient your muscle memory. Forcing yourself into Valorant sensitivity settings you are not comfortable with will hurt you in the long term.
