If you’re a fan of first-person shooters, VALORANT should be right up your street. Somewhere between Counter-Strike and Overwatch, and developed by Riot, it promises to be one of the biggest games of the modern era.

But like any game, it takes time to get used to, including getting accustomed to each of the 15 characters, learning the ins and outs of the maps, and, most importantly, getting familiar with the guns (it’s an FPS after all).

If you are interested in getting started with VALORANT and want to come out of the gates swinging, converting your sensitivity over from your favorite shooter is the answer. 

Finding the perfect sensitivity can take years, but once you’ve found it, it’s almost impossible to let go. That’s where converting comes in. Instead of finding a new sensitivity, twiddling away with your settings for hours on end, you can simply covert it over from Counter-Strike, Overwatch, Apex Legends, or Rainbow Six

Here’s the conversion rate for each of the four games.

VALORANT sensitivity conversions

  • CS:GO sensitivity divided by 3.3735
  • Overwatch sensitivity divided by 10.6
  • Apex Legends sensitivity divided by 3.18181818
  • Rainbow Six sensitivity multiplied by 1.2
