Hey everyone. I've been using xim for a while now I cant seem to find the right sensitivity for hip and ads. Basically I'm asking for input or advice on what way should i go about finding whats right for me. I play bf4 and destiny mostly. I use g502 mouse with 3600 dpi, hip 35, ads, 25 BenQ monitor. Mouse pad i just use desk. Aim assist off and no ballistics.

I usually rotate 45 degrees while adjusting the sensitivity until I find something that feels comfortable. What this is will depend on your playstyle, the limitations of the look mechanic, and aim assist.

If you want to be really consistent between games then once you have found something that feels good then grab a ruler and measure the distance it takes to do a slow/medium 360 rotation. Now that you have your ideal distance for a 360 you can dial in your other games by adjusting your sensitivity until the distance traveled matches what you wrote down earlier.

if you're coming immediately from PC, no - if you're use to console, yes - you may work your way out of it if you feel that it hinders you though.

My prefered sensitivity in any game:
Place mouse in the middle of the mousemat, movement to the very right = 180 degree and movement from the middle to the left = 180 degeree
(Or easier, 360 degree ingame when you move the mouse from one side of the mousemat to the other)

Awesome. Ill try this and let you know what my results are. Ill have to go purchase a ruler i guess cant seem to find one in the house lol. I've tried so many different  settings with this g502 & g402 you wouldn't believe.  I've always gotten a twitchy feel. Never feels 100% smooth but ive never played on pc so i cant compare.

Aww man thanks for this. This helped substantially. I've noticed everything to be alot smother. My sensitivity is around  14.68 hip 14.60 for ads. My question now would be would i need to apply this to every game? As far as the technique used in the video.

Unsure if this message is towards me but I am not using any ballistics. Would you recommend them?

Yes but you would need to do it for each game again as sensitivity values between different games dont give the same speed

@ j001j001:
That's why they're suggesting to use a ruler to find your cm/360, so that you can easily convert the same sensitivity to every game. Thankfully we have mouse-sensitivity.com for PC, but unfortunately, ruler is all you have for console.
