Players coming to Valorant from CSGO might find the usual way of converting mouse sensitivity doesn’t quite feel right, but we’ve got all the info you need to know to get your settings just right.

In Valorant, aiming is everything – a fact that players coming from CSGO will already be well aware of. But they could be converting their mouse sensitivity incorrectly, which means things won’t be working like they should.

According to Reddit user binkaaa, the normal method of dividing your CSGO sensitivity by 3.18 doesn’t work due to Valorant’s slight field of view (FOV) difference.

Valorant and CSGO have very similar mechanics, so bringing the settings you’re familiar with over is a great idea if you get it right.

If you used the 3.18 method to bring your settings into Valorant and things feel a little off, binkaaa explained that’s probably because it’s higher than you’re used to.

“This (3.18) will only give you the same sense of traversing the game world, as it matches the amount of distance required to move your mouse for a 360 degree rotation,” they explained. “BUT, due to the FOV difference between the two games of 3.26 degrees, you will not have the same SENSITIVITY.”

Counter-Strike has been around for decades while Valorant is a brand new release in 2020.

So what’s the solution to converting your CSGO settings to work the same in Valorant? To put it simply, if you play both games on a 16:9 resolution, try dividing your Counter-Strike sensitivity by 3.3735 and see how that works, compared to 3.18.

But that also leaves us with the issue of scoped sensitivity, which binkaaa also had a solution for, but fair warning, this one might not be as foolproof as the general sensitivity conversion rate.

“Unfortunately, at this time you can only correct for one zoom level,” they revealed. “I use the 2.5x zoom, to correct the scopes to the same level of my valorant sensitivity, and if you correct as I have said, using the CSGO conversion, you will also end up with your scopes behaving the same between CS:GO and Valorant.”

If you’ve been having trouble coming over to Valorant from CSGO or things just don’t feel quite right while you’re playing, hopefully this new method of transferring your settings over will work out, and get you back in peak FPS form.

Binkaa goes into incredible amounts of detail about how exactly they used math to determine the differences between the two games and come up with an accurate solution, so if you’re into that kind of thing, their full post is definitely worth a read.

Having a familiar sensitivity will only take you so far in Valorant though, and to help you even more you can check out our guides to Reyna, Breach, Viper, and all of the other agents right here.

As part of the Army’s National Guard Community Challenge, CSGO players competing will have the chance to earn extra points by completing various missions. Here’s how missions work, and how to get them done.

Army National Gaurd

Throughout the duration of the CS:GO community nights and tournaments running until December, you can rack up points for each game you win – while having points deducted for a loss.

But, it’s not just winning or losing you need to worry about – that’s where missions come in. Missions offer an extra opportunity to pick up points.

If you’re not already signed up, make sure to head to our info page for everything you need to get started.

CS:GO Community Night Missions

Missions are a way for players to earn additional rewards for winning matches, by not just winning matches for points but also playing, getting headshots, clutches, bomb defuses, nade kills, etc.

Players will enter a mission challenge and compete against themselves to complete a specific task. If you complete that task, i.e. 3 clutches in a game, you will win points that can be spent on the shop here.

Hometown Soldier Campaign

The Army National Guard started the Hometown Soldier Campaign on November 1, with missions that can be activated by any players with a CS:GO game account.

There are currently two missions that everyone can complete until the end of November:

  • Mission 1: Win 10 matches – 500 points
  • Mission 2: Win 60 matches – 20,000 points

At the end of the month, these missions will be replaced by two more on December 1, which will run until the end of December.

This is all in addition to the bi-weekly tournaments, where players will be ranked on their wins/losses. The top players will proceed to the next stage of the tournament and will be rewarded with points, from a pool of 30,000 – full details here.
