Best Valorant pro settings

Given that there are various options in Valorant’s settings menu, knowing which ones to modify can become a bit confusing. Owing to this, we have split the entire menu into five parts that are of the highest importance in Valorant.


The most important option under the Accessibility menu is the Enemy Highlight Color as it has a direct impact on how quickly you spot an enemy. It is highly recommended that you choose a contrasting color from your crosshair. This will prevent you from losing sight of your crosshair while trying to aim for an enemy’s head which is almost entirely covered by the highlight color.

The most important setting for your Mouse is definitely Aim Sensitivity. However, there are a couple of other things that you should check to ensure that there are no bloopers in the middle of an intense fight. While the eDPI setting depends entirely on your own preference, we highly recommend that you turn off the Invert Mouse option and turn on the RawInputBuffer beta option.

These settings will help you stay on top of your gun controls in Valorant and can even help with improving your reaction time and aim.

Yet another parameter that you will need to ensure is optimally set so that you don’t face any troubles with the gameplay. Although there are not a lot of variables that you will need to alter, the ones that you do need to, are fairly important. Here’s a list of the things that you need to check under the Video options in Valorant’s settings.

  • Display Mode: Fullscreen
  • Limit FPS in Menus: Off
  • Limit FPS Always: Off
  • NVIDIA Reflex Low Latency: On (Set this on only if you have an Nvidia GPU. Also, don’t set it to On+Boost as it will only lower your FPS)
  • Limit FPS in Background: Off

Graphics Quality

When it comes to a shooter game that relies heavily on visuals, Graphics Quality becomes a top priority. So much so, that there are several players who would happily give up on the quality of how the game looks to ensure that their FPS doesn’t drop off in the middle of a fight.
