Have a gaming mouse? Turn down your dang DPI – VentureBeat

If you’re only getting into PC gaming or playing competitively, you may have some misconceptions about how to get the most from your Razer DeathAdder EliteHyperX Pulsefire, or other gaming mouse. That input device, which is famous for its accuracy and speed, can lose a lot of those benefits (and a lot of rounds of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds) if you don’t have it set up correctly.

Pro gamers and people who play at a competitive level use overly large mouse pads because they control their aim with their arms. By doing that, pro players can make hyper precise headshots without having to worry about micron-level mouse movement.

Sure, that HyperX mouse pad is still a bit much, but a lot of pros use mouse pads that are at least half that size. It’s the only way to compete.

Fix that DPI, kid!

Most pro players use a DPI setting in the range of 400-to-800. Let’s explain that.

DPI is the number of dots per second that your mouse registers when you move it. Based on that understanding, it is fair to assume that a higher DPI means you are getting more accurate tracking. But that’s not how it works. Your mouse is always tracking its position about 500-to-1,000 times per second, depending on the
