LOVE IT! this is a big help odin thank you, sometimes the simplest approach is the best  :), so about the smoothing feature in apex can you make a tutorial demonstrating what it can do and the situations where it may be necessary to use it.

Solid tutorial.. Thanks Od1n!
I have become too much of a wrist player on console.
Looking forward to dialing it back in and being more of an arm player, like PC.

Great video, thanks for sharing.  Do you have to do this for each game?  It seems like with different translators and aim mechanics the same sensitivity won’t carry over from game to game.

Also, just out of curiosity, how would this methodology translate to finding your “perfect” sensitivity on the PC?  Again, each game has its own sensitivity settings but there is also DPI to factor in.  I guess I will have to see if someone has a similar video for PC.

Is this for hip only? If it is, how would you then continue with finding your correct ads sensitivity.

I have been rather basic in finding my sensitivies in just playing and seeing if I need to raise or lower it.

How about a Sticky for this Post?

Does not really makes sense when it's on Page 100 at some Point.

Thanks for the work and the nice Tutorial  :)

sure ill add that to the list
next one will most likely be a overwatch config tutorial followed by a ballistic curve tutorial

on PC you do it the same way but instead of changing your xim sensitivity you change the sensitivity of the game you play
here a PC video:

you just do it the same way but for your ads sensitivity then
pick an object in the distance for that which you would consider mid range

Excellent tutorial. I've gotten somewhat used to a different sensitivity over the past year. Think it's worth going through this tutorial and doing it anyways? Won't I likely just end up with my current sensitivity
Dexterity is only one of many skills.

I wish I would've known about this approach for my xim4. Thank you for sharing. Question: Do you recommend keeping hip and ADS equal, or using this approach for ADS, and a faster one for hip for quick turning?

i will probably do more tutorials like this, maybe ill summarize them in a stickied tutorial topic then :)


What is a good starting dpi for the xim? I have the g502

try 4000 dpi and then 12000 dpi, no need to test something in between
pick the value that feels better for you, both are high enough to ensure perfect mouse movements :)

yes definitely, but do the tutorial before you have warmed up!
let me know how big the difference between your current sensitvity and ur new one will be :)

id recommend to find your HIP sensitivity with this method first to know the ballpark you re in regarding your sensitivity
then you can either redo the tutorial for your ADS or pick a similar HIP value for your ADS, here i recommend to use a slightly lower speed in your ADS than in your HIP
