Skadoodle transitioned to full-time streaming after he retired from competitive CS:GO in 2018. His love for FPS games never diminished and he kept playing big titles, including Apex Legends, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and even some CS:GO for old times’ sake.

Whatever Skadoodle picked up, he started winning thanks to his years of FPS experience. The pro recently moved on to VALORANT and has been streaming his journey to the top on his Twitch channel.

Though pure skill is essential to success in any FPS game, settings and configurations play an important role as well. Pro players adjust their settings in the most optimized way. If you’re looking to emulate Skadoodle’s VALORANT play in every way possible, here are his settings.
