On coldwar you can change the deadzone of your controller, the default being 10 and 10 was used on the official xim gameplay channel config.

Would there be negative/positive effects if I was to lower this? I can reach as low as 4 before i start to get stick drift.

Yes you are going to have negative effects mainly, the only positive I can think of is the placebo effect that you think you are doing something good when you not.  ;) :)

Once you set your game with it's specific settings for XIM any change/tweak that you think to need it, should be done at the XIM manager app/Aim/Advanced like: changing your Deadzone if that is you want to do; not at the game, that is for gamers who are using an analog stick, in our case those XIM specific settings are the foundation so XIM can work properly.

Completely agree with Alan. If you want to tweak your deadzone, do it with Boost in Apex Manager.
