Does anyone else play with a relatively low sensitivity? Apparently after discussing this with a few friends, its come to my attention that my sensitivity is extremely low compared to theirs.

The link shows how far i turn with a 10" swipe on an 11" mousepad.

Depends, I play on high DPI but low in-game sensitivity. I find it lets me make the quick turns when I need to but it's still much more stable for aiming. Not really sure why you would turn your DPI down instead of just lowering the in-game sensitivity.

No the best is intermediate ground because with each extreme there are pros and cons. But for the most part keeping sensitivity near the lower side is a bit better which is also where I keep mine. Everything seems too jittery with a high sensitivity but then again it is personal preference.

I do this also. I have a high polling rate with a very low ingame sensitivity.

Yeah i play on very low sensitivity too, huge cloth mouspad 16'' x 13'', can't stand playing with high sens. although i do find myself running into trouble sometimes when the enemy is at point blank range and starts to run circles and jump around me lol.

I use a trackball and set the in game sensitivity low - I can do a very quick 180 with just a flick of my fore and index fingers and yet I can accurately make fine adjustments to my aim as need be.

It takes a couple days to get used to a trackball and a lifetime to love!

Another thread like this

Honestly, It all comes down to personal preference. It doesn't matter if it's high sensitivity or low sensitivity because you will eventually get used to it. If you want to stay consistent make sure you disable mouse acceleration! It's extremely bad.

I use a simple guideline of being able to do a 180 degree turn with one smooth swipe, about half the size of my puretrak talent pad which is about 9.5". Having a mouse that can change dpi on the fly is good for turrets and jets.

I realize it comes down to personal preference, i was just curious as to whether or not anyone else was playing low sens to that degree in this game or not.

i play on a large cloth mousepad with 1800 dpi and from using bf3 settings editor since ingame sensitivity has no fucking increments thanks to a console port, my sens is at 16, which in game is like 1/4th of the bar.

I prefer lower sens + cloth mousepad for better control on those reflex and muscle memory shots. High sens does have its advantages on quick target switching and movements but i prefer to be more precise and in control.

All comes down to person preference in the end.

A 180 turn for me in bf3 is about 8-9 inches.

A general rule of thumb that people follow is that you should be able to do a 180 turn from one side of your mousepad to the middle. Its the guideline ive been using since my quake days and its worked out well.

This is what i currently use and its worked out awesomely. Been using it for 5+ years and its still good. Ive even washed it a few times in the washer with light soap and then air dried it and it looks brand new.

It seems to be more expensive then i remember but there is a cheaper alternative that is just as good. Its a little smaller in dimensions though. This is the mousepad i use when i go to lan parties and local tournaments cause im afraid ill lose my DKT one and thats hard to find :P

180dpi is crazy low lol

The lowest ive played with was 900dpi and in game was pretty much off,that was for sniping with iron sights.I took a lot of getting used to and i had to drop it down a little bit at a time as i used to play at 3600dpi with low in game.

Right now i have settled on 1550dpi but lower it for sniping.

depends on your dpi yes.

if you have high dpi you have to have low sensitivity to not make a 360 every time you move the mouse.

low sensitivity makes accurate aiming easier, you dont need it for cod but in battlefield you can actually miss a target.

I play on 5700 DPI with 0.02 sensitivity ingame. I have to do 2-3 swipes on a 10-15 in. section of my mousepad in order to do a 180, depending on where my mouse is on that 10-15 in. place. It does get me into trouble sometimes but normally not because iam used to swiping so fast. I love low sensitivity, the only problem is after several hours my shoulder starts to hurt because i swipe so much.

I'm about the same as you are. 5/11 in windows with 400 DPI on my mouse. And according to my PROF_SAVE_profile in my documents my sensitivity is at 0.04.
