CSGO to Valorant Sensitivity Converter/Calculator

Last Updated on September 24, 2023

CSGO to Valorant Sens Converter – As a competitive FPS Gamer, sensitivity is everything. The ability to precisely control your aim and movement in competitive shooters like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO) and Valorant can mean the difference between clutching that 1v3 or whiffing the shot. After switching from being a CSGO main to playing Valorant, I knew I had to find the perfect sensitivity to compete.

CSGO to Valorant Sens Converter

Here’s a simple calculator that I have created that will convert your CSGO sensitivity to Valorant:

CS:GO To Valorant Sens

How Does The Calculation Work?

When I first booted up Valorant, it felt way too fast compared to my trusty CSGO sensitivity. After some googling, I found out that Valorant’s default sensitivity is 0.8, while CSGO’s is 2.0. No wonder it felt so off!

Luckily, there’s a simple calculation to convert your CSGO sensitivity to Valorant:

Valorant Sensitivity = CSGO Sensitivity / 3.18

For example, my sensitivity in CSGO was 1. So my equivalent Valorant sensitivity would be:

1 (CSGO) / 3.18 = 0.31 (Valorant)

Here are a few examples:

  • 1 = 0.31
  • 1.5 = 0.47
  • 2 = 0.63

I punched my CSGO sensitivity into the CSGO to Valorant sensitivity calculator above to confirm and there it was – 0.31 would be my starting point for finding my ideal Valorant sens.

Here is me getting a 4k with Deagle in CS:GO with 1 sensitivity and 800 DPI:

Why Lower Sens Like the Pros?

After watching hours of pro Valorant gameplay, I noticed most of the top players used an extremely low sensitivity. We’re talking 400 or even 200 DPI low.

This allows them to be extremely precise with their aim at the cost of less mobility. Headshots become easier at range, but turning quickly can be difficult.

I decided to try lowering my sensitivity to match the pros, even though it felt weird at first. And you know what? My K/D started improving almost immediately. I was landing shots that I would’ve whiffed before, especially with rifles like the Vandal.

Of course, finding the “perfect” sensitivity takes time. But lowering mine from the default definitely helped.

The Grind to My Perfect Sens

I wish I could say there was some sensitivity secret sauce, but finding your perfect sens requires good old fashioned practice. I played Deathmatch mode for hours, tweaking my DPI and in-game sensitivity bit by bit.

Here are a few tips I learned:

  • Lower your sens and DPI in small increments – Big drops can really mess you up. Take it slow.
  • Play Deathmatch – Great for testing sensitivity changes in real combat.
  • Find a “flicking” sensitivity – I settled on a sens that let me quickly flick between targets.

After a solid month of DM grinding, I found my sweet spot: 0.31 in-game sensitivity at 800 DPI. This let me flick shots precisely while still being able to turn quickly.

My Current Valorant Sensitivity vs CSGO

My current Valorant sensitivity converts to about 1 sensitivity in CSGO.

These are a few things I did when I started playing CSGO back in 2015, and I have certainly improved a lot. Hope this calculator and article helped you out. Comment below if it did!
