Highlights
Here are yay’s latest Valorant Settings that you can use in your own game to emulate the Team Envy player’s setup.
Settings like sensitivity should be left to personal preference but you want to have a low sensitivity to easily track your targets.
He is representing North America at Valorant Masters Berlin and will be competing in Valorant Champions later this year.

Jaccob "yay" Whiteaker is a professional Valorant player who is currently playing for Team Envy. He has proven himself to be one of the best players in the world and will be competing in Valorant Champions later this year. You can use yay’s Valorant settings to get a gauge of what you should be using if you want to take Valorant seriously. However, using yay’s Valorant settings can be difficult as he uses a particularly low sensitivity even by pro player standards and it is not something most players can get used to. You can use his settings as a starting point and adjust them to what works for you.
