What polling rate are you using on your G502?
« on: 03:21 AM - 11/02/18 »
I've been using since the beginning, 1000HZ as my polling rate.But never played much.I've played mostly FIFA.But now that I quit FIFa and focused only on shooters (Black Ops 4 in particular) I've been trying and switching between settings, only to find out last night that my mouse, has less jitter (if at all), if i use 500 HZ. Only tried 4k DPI. I'm curious to see how it performs at 12k DPI with 500 HZ. Is it recommended to use 12k DPI with 500 hz? Thank you in advance for all your replies.
Have a great one

Are you on Xbox or PS4? Could be that I'm simply not attuned to the jitter but I run my G502 at 1000hz 12kdpi with no jitter on PS4.

I play on PS4. 500Hz just feels way smoother. Only got the chance to play for 1 hour last night. I will play more tonight to see. I just hope it's not a Placebo

Interesting. I'll keep an eye on any replies if it's advised or worth dropping to 500hz with the G502 then. And give it a go next time I'm on to see if I can tell the difference.

I do feel that 500hz is smoother, but since cod bo4 has such strong aim assit, I find myself combating that aim assist and missing shots.(500hz). On the other hand 1000hz feels like has less aim assist. I use 1000hz and I throw some smothing to it to balance it out.

I used a g502 for a long time and found out that if use a hz checker that it doesn’t hold 1000hz steadily as it jumps up and down frequently but with 500hz it holds it almost perfectly. Hope that helps and maybe you can check for yourself and come to your own conclusions

I was playing last night and come to the conclusion that at 4k dpic500 hz I get more jitter than 4k dpi 1000Hz. I can't explain why.Curiously I was getting better scores with 500 Hz. I ultimately changed back to 1000 Hz but didn't get to play a game after. I will try today and come back with a response. Man,these settings are a pain in the @#$%

Lately 1000 Hz. Try both 500 and 1000, whichever is more comfortable for you personally is the right one.

Verify if your mouse can pull constant at 1k.

If not, go 500.

I kept switching between settings. I currently use 2400 DPI and 500 Hz. Feels pretty good. I only played BO4. I will try Fortnite one of these days. Feel free to post your settings here. Helps a lot.

1000hz for me always. I hate the aim assist so using 1000hz makes it less strong  aim assist.
Bad sad Christmas.
