As the XDefiant test session gains traction in the FPS community, many players want to optimize their gaming experience by converting their sensitivity settings from other FPS games.  In the case of Counter-Strike 2 (CS2) players trying out XDefiant, finding the right sensitivity will make sure that your experience between the two games isn’t as big.

XDefiant Sensitivity Conversion

Converting your sensitivity from CS2 to XDefiant involves a simple calculation. The conversion rate is as follows:

XDefiant Sensitivity=CS2 Sensitivity×12.5

For example, if your CS2 sensitivity is 1.5, the calculation would be:

XDefiant Sensitivity=1.5×12.5=18.75

This means that your XDefiant sensitivity should be set to approximately 20 to match your CS2 sensitivity.

Step-by-Step Conversion Guide

  1. Note Your CS2 Sensitivity: Launch CS2 and navigate to the settings menu. Make a note of your sensitivity setting.

  2. Determine Your Mouse DPI: It's also important to know your mouse's DPI (Dots Per Inch) setting, as this will affect your overall sensitivity.

  3. Calculate Your XDefiant Sensitivity: Use the conversion rate mentioned above to calculate your XDefiant sensitivity based on your CS2 sensitivity and DPI.

  4. Adjust Your XDefiant Sensitivity: Launch XDefiant and navigate to the settings menu. Find the mouse sensitivity option and set it to the calculated XDefiant sensitivity. Apply the changes.

Common Game Conversions 

For players coming from popular FPS titles, here are some common sensitivity conversions to XDefiant:

  • VALORANT: .4 Sensitivity converts to XDefiant - 19 Sensitivity

  • Overwatch 2: 5 Sensitivity converts to XDefiant - 22 Sensitivity

  • Fortnite: 8 X-Axis Sensitivity converts to XDefiant - 29.7 Sensitivity

  • Call of Duty: 8 Sensitivity converts to XDefiant - 36 Sensitivity

Additional Considerations

  • FOV Adjustment: XDefiant has a default FOV (Field of View) of 100, which may differ from CS2. Adjusting your sensitivity in XDefiant helps maintain a similar feel.

  • ADS Sensitivity: As you play XDefiant, you may find it necessary to tweak your ADS (Aim Down Sight) sensitivity for different weapons. Experiment with different settings to find what works best for you.

Optimizing sensitivity settings is crucial for achieving precision and accuracy in FPS games like XDefiant. As the XDefiant test session continues, players are encouraged to experiment with different sensitivity settings and customize their gameplay experience according to their preferences.
