Battlefield 2042: tips for mouse sensitivity

Waiting for the release on all platforms scheduled for tomorrow, November 19, let’s see together a list of tips on how to properly calibrate the sensitivity of your mouse before playing Battlefield 2042

After an industry-shaking postponement, Battlefield 2042 is set to officially hit the market tomorrow, November 19th, on PC and consoles. We have already talked extensively about our first impressions, resulting from the beta some time ago, in a dedicated preview that you can find by clicking here, as well as some tricks and tips to start playing, which you can find here. In the past few days it has been confirmed that at launch there will be no voice chat in the DICE title as well as some details on the season 1 battle pass. In this article, however, we want to investigate some more technical aspects of Battlefield 2042: let’s talk about mouse sensitivity.

Before starting

If you choose to play Battlefield 2042 on PC, one of the main options you will need to pay attention to is the sensitivity of your mouse. DICE’s first person shooter will immerse you completely in epic battles around the world and, very often, whether or not you survive will depend solely on your ability to properly target the enemy. What are the factors to consider before choosing one of the sensitivity options in Battlefield 2042? In this guide we have examined twelve different food for thought to help you and understand how to orient yourself.

Comfort and type of mouse

Obviously, the first advice we would like to give you is to choose the sensitivity with which you feel most comfortable, if the standard ones do not give you a feeling of comfort, change them immediately. It obviously depends a lot on your style of play, ask yourself how much time you will actually spend with your eye in the telescopic sight of your sniper rifle or running around with the assault rifle drawn. Another factor to consider, although it may seem minor, is the size of the mouse pad. If it is too small, it will be quite difficult to play Battlefield 2042 with high sensitivity levels and you should tend to prefer medium to low sensitivity levels.

It is also important to take into account the type and size of the mouse. Smaller ones are usually associated with lower sensitivities, because they offer higher speed in less room to maneuver. Larger mice, on the other hand, can give you more control in the target sections, but be careful not to select too high sensitivities.

So far we understand that the lower sensitivity levels are the most useful on the battlefield, because they simply allow you to be more accurate in aiming at distant targets. The problem, however, lies in the fact that some mice, especially the larger ones and equipped with many side buttons to press, perhaps even simultaneously, are more difficult to govern than others (in particular, those with more DPI). One factor that tends to make it worse is if … you have small hands! In this case, selecting a medium sensitivity would be a good compromise.

Furthermore, as mentioned at the beginning, it is important to take into account your style of play. Are you fighters who walk around with weapons drawn or do you stay in the same place for long periods? This is obviously a factor that will affect what level of sensitivity you may be most comfortable with governing your character. If you’re more of a sniper shooter, you’ll want to keep it fairly low for better accuracy. If, on the other hand, you love to wander around and be quick and deadly, the higher sensitivities might suit your play style better.

Each of us is used to holding the mouse differently and choosing between one palm or claw grip is the eternal dilemma of all PC gamers. if you play CS: GO or similar games, where the mouse doesn’t have to move that much, then choosing the claw grip is probably best. However, if you can’t control the higher sensitivities, we recommend using the whole palm.

Furthermore, it is also good to keep in mind how the mouse pins you are using are made. Those with low friction are the most useful ones, because they allow the mouse to move more freely on the surface. Faster speed, less drag.

If you are a regular Battlefield player, it is quite possible that your sensitivity level must necessarily be lower than the players of League of Legends or Counter Strike. So if you are looking for a good control over your character, you should use a low sensitivity level, which will also increase your aiming skills exponentially. For faster, fast-paced games, however, the higher sensitivity levels will adapt to the context.

The type of mouse used in gaming sessions is quite important in determining which type of option to use the most. If it is equipped with an optical sensor, you are more likely to have to lower the sensitivity, unlike those equipped with a laser sensor.

Monitor Resolution and PC Performance | Battlefield 2042: tips for mouse sensitivity

In order to play Battlefield 2042 at its best, it is also quite important to determine what PC you have. Starting from the resolution of the monitor, for example, and the frames per second that you will be able to extrapolate from your machine. It is important to understand if and how well your PC is running the game at its best and understand what to do to improve its performance and fix performance problems.

How long to get used to the new settings? And above all: are you comfortable?

If you have to spend a lot of time getting used to a certain type of sensitivity, we recommend that you choose one and keep it without changing anything, unless you find something really wrong with it. Beware of changing options as you get used to it: You may have to start all over again and lose all progress made up to then.

If you find that you are having difficulty coping with certain situations, then your sensitivity options may need to be recalibrated. Each player has different performances and obviously plays differently. Take everything into consideration, do the math and maybe try both extremes: test. And enjoy!
